What’s in your air?

The air that
we breathe

You probably know that the quality of the air we breathe is critical to our daily functioning. The human body needs fresh oxygen 24 hours a day to function optimally. For many of us, this comes naturally, and we don’t think about what we’re actually breathing into our lungs.

Air pollutants are too small to see with the naked eye, but poor air quality can lead to a variety of health problems – from signs of the less-known “sick building” Syndrome” such as headaches, mood swings, tiredness, lack of concentration, to serious health problems such as respiratory damage and eye irritation, cardiovascular diseases, increased allergies and hypersensitivity, and an increased risk of cancer. Knowing what’s in our air and keeping it clean and fresh is just as important as knowing what’s in the food we eat or the water we drink every day.

While pollutants in our homes, offices and workplaces make up a small part of the air around us, they can have a major impact on our health in both the short and long term. What are the most common culprits?

The most common indoor air pollutants are combustion products, biological particles from mold, dander, pollen, volatile organic compounds (VOC), lead and asbestos. According to the European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks, indoor air can contain over 900 different types of gaseous chemicals and fine particulate matter below 2.5 microns (PM 2.5). Breathing in tiny, invisible pollutants puts us at risk. These go through our lung tissue into our bloodstream, circulate throughout our body, and often stay there.

Our daily companions

Where are these hidden?

  • Vehicle exhaust and tobacco smoke
  • Food and associated odors
  • People gatherings (indoors)
  • Industrial pollution
  • Chemicals such as adhesives, paints, varnishes, cleaning agents, printers


About 20% of all people struggle with allergies every day.

Bacteria & Germs

Multi-resistant germs and specific viruses are becoming more and more dangerous – most germs are mainly transmitted by airborne droplets.


Viruses are becoming more and more ubiquitous – most viruses are mainly transmitted indoors.


The one thing people usually notice first: the presence of foul odors can be not only quite unpleasant but also unhealthy.


Volatile Compounds (VOCs) are harmful chemicals emitted from everyday products.

Interior- air quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality in and around buildings, particularly in relation to the health and comfort of occupants.
Determining IAQ values ​​involves taking air samples, monitoring temperature and humidity, and analyzing airflow in buildings.

The most widely used international HVAC and indoor air quality standards are:

DIN EN 16798-3: 2017-11 (European standard)

Ventilation for non-residential buildings - Performance requirements for ventilation and indoor air conditioning systems. The European standard classifies indoor air quality into four classes, from IDA4 - buildings with low air quality to IDA1 - buildings with high air quality.

EN15251 (European Standard)

Indoor environmental input parameters for design and assessment of energy performance of buildings- addressing indoor air quality, thermal environment, lighting and acoustic

ASHRAE 62.1 and 62.2 -2013

Ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality

Sick Building Syndrome

Have you ever heard of Heard “Sick Building Syndrome” (SBS)? This term is used to describe situations where indoor individuals experience negative health effects that appear to be related to time spent indoors, but no specific disease or cause can be identified. This “modernity’s disease” is a by-product of our airtight, energy-efficient buildings and the stale air filled with chemical or biological pollutants that can easily accumulate indoors. Common symptoms include acute discomfort such as headaches, sensitivity to smells, irritation in the eyes, nose, or Throat, dry cough, skin irritation, dizziness, nausea, difficulty concentrating and fatigue People suffering from SBS experience these symptoms for no apparent reason and usually feel relief shortly after leaving the affected building.
