There has been so much media focus on the dangers of outdoor air pollution and not nearly enough attention paid to our indoor air quality. That’s unfortunate since most of us spend the majority of our time indoors.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) is an organization that recognizes the true importance of clean indoor air. Their mission statement states that everyone has a right to live and to play in an indoor environment that is committed to protecting our health. But they are also aware that its actions have a very real impact on the community in which they operate. This commitment and awareness is a rare combination.
South Coast AQMD set out to put air purification systems in nearly fifty Wilmington schools that did not have any form of air quality control and were in pollution danger zones. Their goal was to achieve the maximum filtration possible with their budget. In order to do that, they accepted bids from a wide range of companies. And some of those bids included demonstrations, such as those held by IQAir at Long Beach and Los Angeles area schools. South Coast AQMD walked away from the IQAir demonstrations very impressed.
For nearly six decades, IQAir has been manufacturing the highest quality HEPA air purifiers on the market. And during that time, they have earned an impeccable reputation for quality and service. In fact, many notable publications and consumer groups have recognized their products: Consumer Digest, Consumer Guide and Wired magazine, just to name a few.
The contract that South Coast AQMD awarded to IQAir comes from a settlement with the City of Los Angeles, and the city chose South Coast AQMD to administer and implement the entire project. For the core of the project, IQAir installed high-quality, high-performance HEPA air purifiers in schools affected by port-related activities. IQAir used any remaining funding to place HEPA filters in schools that already had filtration systems.
One of the factors contributing to the city choosing the South Coast AQMD is that they had conducted a study in 2008 of classroom-based air filtration systems in schools near refineries. During these extensive tests, the South Coast AQMD found the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier provided excellent results. The HealthPro Plus reduced pollution levels significantly, in addition to the children experiencing easier breathing. Children with asthma and other allergic conditions noticed a sharp decline in symptoms.
