Indoor air – and why don’t we care more about it?

We have a passion for indoor air. Why you may wonder? From the very first moment in life we need air. We start life taking a deep breath of air and from that very moment we are dependant on it – for life, health and well being. 

Nowadays we spend more than 90% of our time indoors. That’s equal to 21.6 hours each day, and on average 628 992 hours in a life time

Seeing it from another perspective we spend 58 years of our life at home – and 27 of those years are spent in the bedroom.

To add on more perspectives, you breathe around 8 to 10 liters of air every minute. Normally, you breathe 6 liters of air per minute when you rest, and around 100 liters when you work out.

With those perspectives in mind, it’s actually so that indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outside air. And clean air is the foundation for life. And for staying healthy and productive. That’s why we have a passion for improving indoor air.
