Air Quality Awareness Week

banner

This week is Air Quality Awareness Week. It serves as a reminder that air quality affects everyone and it’s up to us to help control and improve our air quality for generations to come.

Air quality affects our way of life from polluting our lungs to clogging our arteries. More and more research is coming out every week linking poor air quality to health issues. Ground-level ozone, particle pollution, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide surround us in the air we breathe. In China and India the levels of air pollution are at alarming levels with residents doing all they can to lessen their exposure.

At HealthWay, we offer solutions for the indoor environment with our wide range of products designed for cleaning the air. HealthWay’s patented technology has been proven to be the most efficient ever developed. Certified independent testing supports a filtration efficiency of 99.99% at removing particles as small as .007 microns, which is 50% more efficient than a HEPA filter.

While HealthWay can help you control your indoor environment. It is up to everyone to control our outdoor environment. This week take the steps and do your part to reduce your impact on air quality. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests this week carpool with fellow workers, fill your gas tank at night, walk or ride your bike and when going to lunch, avoid the drive thru, walk in to prevent your car from idling.

These tips can be used everyday verses just this week. Start a habit and help reduce our carbon footprint. For more information on Air Quality Awareness Week visit www.epa.gov or www.airnow.gov.
