Syracuse Air Filtration: Camfil Professionals Share Their Requirements for Air Filters in Their Homes During Wildfire Season

Air filtration experts provide insight into what residents of New York, the DMV area, Philadelphia, & other areas affected by 2023 Canadian wildfires should look for in air filters and air purifiers.

New York, NY — New York City, D.C., Philadelphia, and countless other East Coast cities have been hit with dangerous levels of air pollution due to wildfires occurring in Eastern Canada, with many local governments issuing air quality advisories and warning residents to stay inside as much as possible.

As a long-time resident of the west coast, where air quality is affected by wildfires in California and other nearby states regularly, air filtration professional Jennifer Webb is no stranger to the need for an air filtration system to protect her home from the unpleasant odors and dangerous health effects associated with wildfire smoke.

In an interview with Camfil’s Mark Davidson, Webb provides her perspective as an air quality professional on what people in areas affected by wildfire smoke pollution should look for in air filters and air purifiers for optimum protection.

“I live in Sacramento, which is in the central valley of California, and it tends to be where a lot of the area’s wildfire smoke will migrate into and settle,” says Webb, Molecular Segment Manager for the west coast market at global air filtration manufacturer Camfil, “Because of that, we’re keenly aware of the risks of wildfires.”

The interview covers the following topics:

  • What does AQI mean?

  • What do different AQI scores mean?

  • What kinds of pollution are found in wildfire smoke and how do they affect human health?

  • How can you clean indoor air when affected by wildfire smoke?

  • How does wildfire smoke affect your HVAC system?

  • What are the best air filtration solutions for wildfire smoke?
