Why do we need air purifiers?
Ofcourse, the deteriorating condition of existing air quality is a major national concern, especially, in the capital.
How does one determine or know how bad air is at some place?
To know this one need to refer to the Air Quality Index (AQI).
AQI refers to the amount of particulate matter(PM) in air. The suspended gases, bacteria, hazardous gases, determine the quality of air. The level of particulate matter (PM) – PM 2.5 and PM 10 (particulate matter of 2.5 & 10 micrometers in diameter or less) also, determines the quality of air.
aqicn.org gives the accurate, real time Air Quality Index (AQI) of a city and different areas of a particular city. Another, website SAFAR India deals with AQI along with weather forecasting. It was surprising to see that almost no metro city met the standard pollution level.
