How Is The Air Quality Index Determined?

The COVID-19 pandemic has done many things worldwide…most of them bad, but it has also sparked a newfound interest and/or concern when it comes to indoor air quality (IAQ). While nothing is 100% effective, healthier air in your Fort Wayne, Decatur, Angola, Indianapolis, Greenwood, or Mishawaka, IN can certainly help limit the spread of many viruses.

Making IAQ Even More Important

The purpose of this article is not to scare anyone, but the scientists who study viruses are very clear: This won’t be the last time the world has to deal with a viral pandemic. It might not happen for another 20 years or longer, but it could happen again next year. It’s why Masters Heating & Cooling urges you to make improving indoor air quality a top priority. 

Outdoor vs Indoor Air Quality

Most cities of any size will have an air quality index to rate the outdoor air quality. The air quality is monitored constantly and alerts you when conditions are unhealthy so you can curtail outdoor activities whenever possible. Here is what you may not realize: The air quality index does not have a direct correlation to indoor air quality. EPA studies show IAQ is often much unhealthier than the air outdoors.

Air Purifiers Help

Air purifiers use various technologies but here’s the thing you need to know: Purifiers are different from filters because they sanitize the air instead of just removing particles. That means the ability to kill bacteria and viruses to limit their spread.
