It is well known that air pollution is the fourth leading cause of death in India, as per a Lancet Planetary Health report. The report also stated that 1.7 million Indians died in 2019 due to air pollution from both indoor and outdoor sources. While outdoor air pollution is more visible, indoor air pollution is mostly overlooked. Unfortunately, indoor air is 2 – 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. This is due to Household Odors and Gases (Cooking odors, pet smells, cigarette smoke, chemicals, sink or drain smells, etc.), Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs (Paints, glues, varnish, cleaning supplies, wood preservatives, office equipment, furniture, etc.), Micro-organisms (Bacteria, mould, fungi, yeasts, mites, etc) and Airborne Particles (Diesel exhaust, carbon black, dust, smoke, fibers, plant matter, hair, pollen, etc.) all contributing to deteriorating air quality.
Particulate Matter (PM) is a pollutant of special concern. According to the WHO, millions in India are inhaling air that is 10 times or more over the prescribed safe limit of PM 2.5. This can be dangerous as smaller particles (PM 2.5 or smaller) can reach deep into the small airways of the body and deposit on the alveoli – the tiny sacs in the lungs where oxygen exchanges with carbon dioxide in the blood.
For aged parents, especially those suffering from pulmonary conditions such as asthma, clean air is a medical need. For babies and young children, it is healthier living, especially since much of our life is now spent indoors.
Air-conditioned rooms can cause dehydration of nasal and oesophageal membranes, making it dry and susceptible to dust, pollen, spore related allergies, bacterial or viral infections due to high level of pollutants in indoor air. Studies have also shown that purified indoor air can work wonders for one’s sleep routine and greatly affects how the body repairs and rejuvenates at night, making an individual fit for the next day.
With these findings, IFB research, innovated and designed an air conditioner that could not only cool air but also “treat” it. The IFB R&D team set out with a benchmark of PM 0.3, and invented IFB FastCool – The Zero-Compromise AC, an air conditioner that radically improves indoor air quality in a multi-dimensional manner with 7-Stage Air Treatment.
IFB FastCool AC’s contain 7 separate filters and diffusers for removing all inorganic (PM 0.3-2.5 dust particles) and organic pollutants, noxious gases and infusing air with pleasant aroma and Vitamin C. IFB FastCool’s unique 7-Stage Air Treatment cleans indoor air, making it dust free, germ and odor free.
* Dust filter prevents allergies by capturing dust and other airborne particles.
* PM 0.3 filter removes air pollutants as small as 0.3 micron.
Germ & odor free:
* Anti-bacterial filter removes bacteria and allergens from the air.
* Activated carbon filter absorbs smoke, gases, chemicals and other dust particles.
* Catechin filter removes unpleasant smell to keep the air odor free.
* Vitamin C diffuser adds natural antioxidants to improve air quality.
