Frequently Asked Questions

Why are indoor air pollution levels higher than outdoors?

The air inside our homes, offices, leisure facilities, etc. does not regenerate or flow as it does in open spaces, meaning the particles floating in the environment are more concentrated, causing an increase in pollution levels.

What are the effects of breathing poor quality indoor air on my health?

Breathing polluted indoor air can cause problems with sleep, or affect concentration while working or studying. It can also produce headache, eye or throat irritation, fatigue... The effects of prolonged exposure to poor quality air in the long term include a range of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

What are the causes of indoor air pollution?

There are mainly two reasons why indoor air is polluted. Firstly, the lack of ventilation or air filtration, and, secondly, pollution from sources such as cigarette smoke, building or cleaning materials, excessive humidity, or harmful gases from outside.

What can I do to improve air quality in my home?

Breathing cleaner air at home is possible by following a few tips, such as ensuring proper ventilation, not smoking inside, using the extractor hood when cooking, and having plants around the house. It is also important to make the most of technology, counting on purifiers or air conditioning systems fitted with filters to retain harmful particles.

Which filter works best?

The more filters fitted in a unit, the higher the quality of air. Every filtering system has its own features and functions. For instance, a titanium apatite filter reduces bad odours, while a silver ion filter traps pollen. The most innovative and revolutionary is Flash Streamer technology, exclusive to Daikin, which ensures clean, high-quality indoor air.

Is it important to worry about humidity? How can I control humidity levels?

The humidity of the environment also affects our health, which is why it must be kept at appropriate levels (between 40 and 60%). Excessive humidity can encourage the appearance of mould and dust mites, while humidity below the recommended level causes dry skin and nose, eye irritation, etc.

Daikin has systems fitted with humidification or dehumidification technologies to adapt the humidity levels in different environments, thus making the indoor environment more comfortable.
