NAFA Announces 32 Clean Air Award Recipients for 2018

Madison, Wisconsin August 23, 2018 – The National Air Filtration Association has announced its recipients of the Clean Air Awards for 2018.   The Clean Air Award is presented each year to the building owners and managers who take steps to significantly improve the quality of their indoor air by increasing the level or efficiency of their HVAC air filtration system in 10 specific categories.

NAFA’s Executive Director, Michelle Czosek, CAE, acknowledged the award winners by saying, “NAFA’s Clean Air Award program allows our members to showcase the best of the best. The nominated facilities have all passed a rigorous point system to be eligible for the award and promote the importance of air filtration and maintaining a clean and healthy indoor work environment.”

 

Candidates are nominated for the award by both NAFA members and members of the facility management community and must submit detailed and specific steps taken toward cleaning the indoor environment through “best air filtration practices” and system hygiene.  A NAFA Certified Air Filter Specialist confirms these improvements. Nominees are judged by the NAFA Clean Air Award Committee and each recipient receives a custom-designed award, building signage and recognition for their efforts.

Award-winning buildings must maintain IAQ diligence and submit inspection data each year in order to maintain the NAFA Clean Air Award.
