VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The National Air Filtration Association (NAFA) presented awards to the recipients of the Clean Air Awards for 2011 at its annual conference in Williamsburg, Va., on Aug. 4. Clean Air Awards are 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. Awards are judged by the NAFA Clean Air Award Committee, and each recipient receives a custom-designed trophy and recognition for their efforts.

Award-winning buildings must maintain IAQ diligence and submit inspection data each year in order to keep the NAFA Clean Air Award.
