It’s Time to Pay Attention to Indoor Air Quality
Panasonic’s WhisperAir Repair serves as a simple yet effective intervention to poor indoor air quality. Panasonic's WhisperAir Repair applies a new technology to deodorize, and inhibit indoor toxins.
COVID brought the important topic of indoor air quality to the front of our national dialog. We suddenly became aware of the unseen dangers of airborne viruses, bacteria, and other toxins.
According to a COGNITION Smart Data survey, living in a healthy home is now a top priority for nearly 80% of homebuyers. In fact, a healthy home was identified as the top purchase driver when making home buying decisions.
Are Invisible Threats Making You Tired?
Every day, we inhale approximately 20,000 times and spend roughly 90% of our time indoors. And, according to the EPA, indoor air is oftentimes more polluted than outdoor air, harboring harmful irritants like allergens, dust mites, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter, and carbon dioxide.
The air we breathe doesn’t just have a bearing on illness and allergies, it also impacts sleep, mood, and energy levels.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Center of America, if clean air isn’t continuously injected into a space, the air in that space will become polluted from our daily activities. The tightness of energy efficient buildings and homes built today can lead to poor IAQ when ventilation and filtration systems are not included in the design.
A Two-Part Strategy to Clear the Air
What’s the answer to poor indoor air quality? First, it’s imperative to reduce the sources of pollution by eliminating materials, carpets, and finishes that off-gas. Then, it’s essential to add a combination of diffusion and filtration through the installation of quiet exhaust fans, energy recovery ventilators, filters, and smart controls.
Panasonic’s WhisperAir Repair is a great option that uses new nanoe™X technology for energy efficient spot air purification and odor elimination. It runs 24 hours automatically and continually purifying to help eliminate the problem.

NOTE: WhisperAir Repair’s impact on odors, allergens, pollen, and hazardous substances was based on testing in an 812ft³⁄23m³ room. WhisperAir Repair’s ability to inhibit growth of virus (tested with Bacteriophage ΦX174), mold (tested with Alternaria), was based on testing in an 883ft³⁄25m³ area. Bacteria (gram-positive Staphylococcus epidermidis) testing was based on a 1728ft³⁄49m³ room. Please refer to the Panasonic website for more details.
