Indoor Air Quality Solutions: Ionization

Indoor air quality influences nearly every aspect of human life

In this first of a series of Straight Talk! episodes on indoor air quality (IAQ), ISSA Media Director Jeff Cross talks with Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner, Senior Director of Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, and Doug Hoffman, the executive director of NORMI, about the critical importance of IAQ in our daily lives.

According to Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner, Senior Director of Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, the impact of indoor air quality (IAQ) on human health has been well researched and is well known. “Air quality can influence almost every aspect in our lives,” Gavin explained, “from our moods, our energy levels, to our sleep, our productivity.” 

“Indoor clean air is not a luxury,” he continued. “It should not be a luxury, and the good news is that we have some solutions that we want to share with everyone.”

In the discussion, Hoffman mentioned how important it is to understand the different technologies involved in improving air quality. “Fundamentally, if we don’t understand what’s going on with these technologies, it’s very difficult to sort out what we really need and what we don’t need.” One of those available technologies is ionization.

You can learn more about using ionization to improve IAQ by watching or listening to the complete episode of Straight Talk! below.
