airmid healthgroup has been selected for data verification and certification testing for the asthma and allergy friendly™ certification program.

Humidifiers that are certified asthma & allergy friendly™ are tested to the ASP:18:01 Humidifier Certification standard. The Certification Standard utilizes an algorithm of proprietary and recognized scientific techniques to assess Humidifiers for their contribution to the goal of thermal comfort without adversely affecting indoor air quality. Products that pass certification testing are granted a certificate stating that the Humidifier meets the requirements for the asthma & allergy friendly™ ASP:18:01 Certification Standard.

Allergy Standards Ltd (ASL) subjects the Humidifier to allergen measure based performance testing to ensure that the operation and maintenance of the product does not result in any significant increase in levels of airborne allergen. The Humidifier is assessed in a standardised room and challenged with allergen-containing dust. The Humidifier is also assessed for its ability to achieve and maintain RH levels with defined specifications.

The asthma & allergy friendly™ certification mark is awarded to those Humidifiers that have been scientifically demonstrated to contribute to the goals of thermal comfort and indoor air quality.
The Humidifier Certification Standard includes an evaluation of the:

  • capability of humidifiers to achieve and maintain set relative humidity levels.
  • capability of humidifiers to sanitize the water used during operation.
  • Effect of humidifiers on pre-existing contamination in the room in which they are operated.

All certified asthma & allergy friendly™ humidifiers carry a unique certification code.
