SACRAMENTO – A California Air Resources Board-funded study concluded that indoor air quality was significantly improved in homes where either central-system filtration or standalone air cleaners were used. The two-year study examined the extent to which high-efficiency air filtration in homes reduces indoor exposure to air pollution — and related symptoms in asthmatic children. Findings of this study, “Benefits of High Efficiency Filtration to Children with Asthma,” which involved asthmatic children between age 6 and 12, are set to be presented Friday by the lead researcher from the University of California, Davis.
