New Delhi [India], May 22 (ANI/MediaWire): Did you know that air pollution is the fourth leading cause of death in India? According to the report of Lancet Planetary Health, 1.7 million Indians died due to air pollution in 2019 from both indoor and outdoor sources. The report released on December 21, 2020, claimed that the death toll in India is 18 percent of the total deaths in the country.
While outdoor air pollution is more visible and widely discussed, indoor air pollution is mostly overlooked.
We feel safe in our homes, not realizing that the air is more dangerous in a closed-door environment. The fact is that indoor air is 2 – 5 times more polluted than outside air! Household odors and gases (cooking odors, pet odors, cigarette smoke, chemicals, sink or drain odors, etc.), volatile organic compounds VOCs (paints, glues, varnishes, cleaning supplies, wood preservatives, office equipment, Furniture, etc.) Micro-organisms (bacteria, mold, fungus, yeast, mites, etc.) and airborne particulates (diesel exhaust, carbon black, dust, smoke, fibers, plant matter, hair, pollen, etc.) all impair air quality. contribute to. in closed spaces.
Of these, particulate matter (PM) is a pollutant of particular concern. According to WHO, millions of people in India are breathing lethal air, which is 10 times or more than the prescribed safe limit of PM 2.5. Several studies have shown a direct link between exposure to PM and negative health effects. Smaller particles (PM 2.5 or smaller) are generally more dangerous because they can penetrate deep into the body’s small airways and deposit on the alveoli – tiny sacs in the lungs where oxygen exchanges with carbon dioxide in the blood. is provided.
For older parents, especially those suffering from pulmonary conditions such as asthma, clean air is almost a medical necessity. For babies and young children – it is healthy living and even more so when most of our lives are now being spent indoors.
Air-conditioned rooms cause dehydration of the membranes of the nose and esophagus, making it dry and susceptible to dust, pollen, spore allergens, bacterial or viral infections due to high levels of pollutants in indoor air.
In addition, studies have shown that pure indoor air can work wonders for one’s sleep routine and greatly influence how the body repairs and rejuvenates at night, making a person fit for the next day. goes.
These findings, along with trends that a significant reduction in pollution levels is unlikely in the future, prompted IFB to research, innovate and design an air conditioner that could not only cool air but also “treat” it. The IFB R&D team started with a benchmark of PM 0.3, and invented the IFB FastCool – The Zero-Compromise AC, an air conditioner that radically improves indoor air quality in a multi-pronged manner with 7-stage air treatment.
