The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of breathing clean air, leading many people both in the United States and across the world to consider air quality for the first time, due to airborne transmission of the disease. In 2021, schools, offices, and other public spaces worked to make it possible for Americans to return to normal activities, while individuals worked to make their homes a safe place for visitors.
As indoor air quality became a prominent public health concern and organizations such as the WHO, the EPA, and the CDC recommended ventilation and air filtration to reduce the spread of the virus, some manufacturers took the opportunity to push products that supposedly combatted the virus. Some of these technologies provide a false sense of security by allowing consumers to think that they are safe when the risk of infection is still high, while other technologies compound air quality issues by releasing ozone, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other dangerous chemicals into the air.
In this article, air filtration experts and engineers from Camfil — a global leader in air filtration technology — highlight the dangers of some of 2021’s most unreliable air quality trends.
