Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has become a major concern in recent years, with more people recognising the importance of breathing clean, fresh air within their homes and workplaces. To combat air pollutants and allergens, air purification systems have gained popularity. Two main approaches to purifying the indoor air are active and passive methods.
Active air purification systems are designed to actively eliminate airborne pollutants and allergens using various technologies. These systems work by releasing agents or ions into the air, which then interact with and neutralise harmful particles. Some popular technologies used include Ionisers and Photocatalytic Oxidisation.
Passive air purification relies on natural processes or mechanical filtration to clean the air. These systems do not release any agents into the air but instead trap and remove particles through filters or other physical means. Common methods include HEPA Filters, Activated Carbon Filters, Mechanical Filtration, and UV Light.
