The National Air Filtration Association has announced its recipients of the Clean Air Awards for 2014. It will present the awards at its Annual Conference in Savannah, Ga. on September 26, 2013. The Clean Air Award is presented each year to the building owners and managers that take steps to significantly improve the quality of their indoor air by increasing the level or efficiency of their HVAC air filtration system in 10 categories.

Candidates are nominated by both NAFA members and members of the facility management community for the award, and must submit detailed and specific steps taken towards cleaning the indoor environment through better air filtration.  A NAFA Certified Air Filter Specialist confirms these
improvements. This year, 29 buildings will receive the award.

Awards are judged by the NAFA Clean Air Award Committee and each recipient receives a custom designed trophy, entry door sticker, installation on the NAFA website and recognition for their efforts at the Award Ceremony.Award-winning buildings must maintain IAQ diligence and submit inspection
data each year in order to maintain the NAFA Clean Air Award.
