As such the asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program has included certifying air cleaners in order to address some of the contaminants that may be present in indoor air and to scientifically validate that air cleaners contribute to the goal of allergen reduction.
In order to be certified asthma & allergy friendly™, these air cleaners have passed testing and meet the following criteria:
- The air cleaner can reduce bio-allergen level in a defined space
- The reduction in bio-allergen is a result of actual removal and not just re-distribution.
- The air cleaner does not contribute to ozone levels in the home
