Upgrading ventilation, filtration and other factors helps improve health and cognitive performance
Scientific American – Even though humans have long attributed health benefits to fresh outdoor air, it is a lesson many of us seemed to have largely forgotten… until the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to relearn it. Cleaner indoor air studies have shown that poor ventilation has all kinds of other health effects, from “sick building syndrome” to cognitive impacts.

For most homes and small businesses, focusing on ventilation and filtration is probably the easiest way to improve air quality.Read More
