Have you ever stepped outside and wondered why the air feels cleaner than it did in your home? Ever wondered why the air in your home feels stale, or why you get sick often? These questions likely can be attributed to Indoor Air Quality, or IAQ for short. But what does that mean? Indoor Air Quality, or (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.
There are many causes for a decline in IAQ. Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the area. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants. Common sources of pollutants are dust, fuel-burning appliances, candles, cleaning products with too many chemicals, poor ventilation, and more. These pollutants can lead to worsening of COPD, asthma, colds, seasonal flu, and many other types of air-borne and surface-borne germs and particles.
Going back to the first questions we asked, what could it be that causes such a drastic difference in the quality of air inside the home versus the air outside? The answer is simpler than you think: water. Water is all throughout the atmosphere and all over the Earth. The most common forms would be clouds and rain. Rain is a natural phenomenon in which water droplets fall from the sky to the earth's surface due to condensation. Generally, rain is often seen to have the ability to clear smoke and reduce air pollution. Several studies have also shown that rainfall can improve air quality. Raindrops can draw hundreds of particles to their surface as they move through the atmosphere before falling to the ground. This process of attraction between water droplets and other particles is called coagulation. Thus, raindrops can remove airborne pollutants, like noxious gases and particulates.
You might now ask, what does have to do with INDOOR air quality? Again the answer is simple: the HYLA is powered by water! When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. This means the HYLA is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, effectively increasing the IAQ.
The cleaning power of water is truly underestimated, but the HYLA takes full advantage of its capabilities to ensure your home feels as fresh inside as it can be outside. No filters necessary, as the water acts as it’s OWN filter, and the unique DEFENDER Separator Technology safely and naturally eliminates the dust and other harmful particles.
