What is Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality refers to the air quality in and around buildings in which we live and work every day. Air quality has a direct impact on our health. By measuring and checking this air quality, we can greatly reduce the risks of a contaminated indoor air.
Certain consequences of a bad indoor air climate can we already notice after a short time.
Examples of this are irritated eyes, a stuffy nose, dizziness or headache. Fatigue can also be directly associated with a lack of optimal indoor air quality.
In the long term, problems can occur to the heart and respiratory tract or some people suffer from migraine. Poor indoor air is an invisible danger.
By paying attention to this, we can significantly improve our quality of life. As a result, we also perform better and we are banning all inconveniences that brings bad air quality.

Many office buildings and houses are equipped with a ventilation system. This has a direct impact on the Indoor Air Quality. However, it is important that the filters of this system are periodically replaced. The WTCB recommends this to do this every 6 months.
Filters are crucial for air quality and therefore also for health. In one breath they also ensure a better efficiency of the installation and in this way for lower energy consumption.
Good filters ensure that devices have a longer lifespan. So filtering is a win-win situation for you as an organization as well as for tenants and residents.
