Everyday Life Depends on Clean Air

Over time, air filtration has expanded from the protection of industrial processes to extending the lifespan of heating and cooling systems, and eventually to ensuring that the air that people breathe is safe. As scientists learned more about the particles in the air inside the places that people gather, the air filtration industry has refined its standards for clean air. While you may not think much about it, air filtration makes our everyday lives healthier and more comfortable.


The air filters designed for use in your home steadily improve in efficiency to keep pace with the evolving knowledge about the health risks associated with particles in the air we breathe. At first, these filters captured only large particles visible to the naked eye, but now residential filters can capture smaller particles that require a microscope to be seen.

  • Allergens
  • Asthma triggers
  • Pet dander
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Smoke particles
  • Virus-carrying particles

Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings face unique challenges, such as large numbers of people entering and exiting them. Additionally, environmental factors, such as exhaust from passing vehicles, can threaten the quality of air inside commercial buildings. As a result, these buildings require air filters that can capture and hold large amounts of debris. Of course, the need for clean air varies according to the type of building.

  • Office buildings
  • Schools
  • Doctors offices
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Stores
  • Museums

As you can see, clean air plays a vital role in many of the places we go in our daily lives. AAF ensures that you can breathe freely anywhere that you are likely to go.
