The National Air Filtration Association has announced its recipients of the Clean Air Awards for 2021.

The Clean Air Award is presented each year to the building owners and managers who take steps to 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 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. NAFA is excited to have a record number of awardees this year. We look forward to more nominees next year indoor air quality continues to be an important topic.” said Michelle Czosek, Executive Director, CAE, NAFA.

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.
