What is an Air Quality Action Day?
Recently, here in Bucks County PA, we experienced several days of a level orange Air Quality Index (AQI) Alert. AQI is used by government agencies to communicate to the public how polluted the air currently is or how polluted it is forecast to become over a specified period of time. As the AQI rises, an increasingly large percentage of the population is likely to experience increased adverse health effects. Whole home air purifier systems can remove particulate matter and other hard-to-remove impurities such as dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites and spores.
