National Air Filtration Association Names 2021 Clean Air Award Recipients

The National Air Filtration Association has announced its recipients of the Clean Air Awards for 2021. The award is presented each year to the building owners and managers who take steps to significantly improve the quality of indoor air by increasing the level or efficiency of their HVAC air filtration system in 10 specific categories.

Candidates are nominated for the award by NAFA members 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 to maintain the award.
