Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Virginia Tech have developed a new measurement tool that can test for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) when assessing the air quality of any indoor space.
According to Sify News, testing of the device yielded much higher accuracy than those derived from standard technology, which is significantly more costly and time-consuming.
With this latest development, homeowners will be that much closer to being able to rest assured that their indoor air quality is top-notch and, well, air-tight. But even if you can accurately gauge the contamination levels present in your air, it's still up to you to do something about them.
Installing a professional-grade air purifying system in your home, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, is the most effective means for achieving healthy, pollutant-free air. The HealthPro Plus comes with four advanced filtration techniques to effectively remove over 99 percent of all particulate matter and target harmful chemicals and gases as well.
