Across the nation, employees are starting to head back to the office and returning safely is at the top of everyone’s mind. Last year came with adapting to a new way of life and this summer we’re seeing an adaption back to a pre-pandemic era. While there are precautions in place, one in particular is close to our hearts – supporting clean quality air.
It has been suggested that promoting airflow is an efficient method in improving air quality and filtering out contaminants. Contaminants commonly spread through droplets when we cough, sneeze, talk, and breathe. These droplets either evaporate quickly or they remain suspended in the air. Due to their minute nature, proper filtration is needed to capture these tiny particles. While opening windows for ventilation isn’t always possible during the warm summer months, the use of an air purifier is both useful and practical.
Introducing an air purifier increases the circulation and filtration of an office environment – while also tackling odors and allergens. Incorporating an air purifier in your office increases the air quality you and your coworkers breathe, especially if opening windows isn’t an option. Before your company purchases an air purifier, it’s important to know that not all air purifiers are made equally. In order to ensure the highest quality of air, both a True HEPA filter and Activated Carbon Filter is needed. This powerful combination specifically captures airborne contaminants and odors.
A Winix True HEPA filter captures 99.99%* of airborne allergens down to 0.003 microns in size – including pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, and other ultrafine particles. An Activated Carbon Filter is the only type of filter that captures odor. A Winix Activated Carbon Filter reduces odors and the presences of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). This filter is designed to catch airborne particles found indoors and also helps prolong the lifespan of the True HEPA Filter.
Incorporating an air purifier helps in many areas of the office. The increased circulation leaves the space feeling less stuffy and the reduction of allergens leaves sufferers feeling at ease. The right air purifier with the correct filters will be a welcoming sight all can enjoy while office doors continue to reopen.
