Indoor air quality
Each one of us breathes in 18kg of air a day

A child requires air in a quantity twice that of an adult.*1
Comparing the air consumption per kilogram of weight, an adult consumes 0.3 ㎥ while a child consumes 0.6 ㎥.
*1 ‘Guidelines for Influence of Chemical Substances on Children (Indoor Air Version)’ published by the Bureau of Social Welfare and Public Health, Tokyo Metropolitan Government
The air consumption is calculated with the average weight of 15 kg for children aged 1 to 6 years and of 50 kg for average Japanese adults.
What is PM2.5？
Particulate matter (PM) is a term used to describe the mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets in the air.
PM2.5 refers to atmospheric particulate matter that have a diameter less than 2.5 micrometers.
Often described as fine particles, they are up to 30 times smaller than the width of a strand of human hair.
Air pollution and influence on health
Air Pollution and its Potential for Harm
Polluted air can trigger coughing, chest tightness, sore throat, watery or itchy eyes, shortness of breath and serious allergy reaction such as asthmatic bronchitis. With long-term exposure, it could even lead to lung and heart diseases.
How allegy reaction happens
Does the difference in height between children and adults make a difference in their health?
Since children have immature lungs, they are easily affected by air quality.
Human beings breathe to take up oxygen and discharge carbon dioxide. Mucus to help the lungs function in breathing is excreted only in less quantity especially among children up to 2 years old than adults, and children thus easily develop disorders. In short, small children are susceptible to air quality, and proper air environment is essential for their future health.
Ventilation is indispensable for people’s health and optimal building conditions.
As in the haze season, people want to open windows but can’t. Fresh air is difficult to be introduced into closed houses, and indoor air easily becomes dirty.
CO2 concentration provides an index of air purity.
CO2 occurs in nature (World average concentration: approx. 400 ppm in 2018). While a small quantity of CO2 has no adverse effects on human health, 1,000 ppm or more CO2 may cause symptoms such as a sense of fatigue, headache, tinnitus, or difficulty breathing.
Even when all windows are closed in the haze season, indoor air is polluted to approx. 55% of the outdoor air.
The R&D Center of Panasonic Homes conducted a 7-day demonstration experiment in a house located in Shah Alam, Selangor, in 2018. The experimental results showed that the average concentration of PM2.5 indoors with the windows closed was about 55% of the average PM2.5 concentration outdoors.
Panasonic Air Quality Solutions
Houses from Panasonic Homes regularly replace contaminated indoor air with fresh and clean air by removing particulate matter from outdoor air with high efficiency filters.
In addition, Panasonic’s nanoe™ Technology decomposes cooking smells and PM2.5 to ensure a more comfortable environment.
