To better educate consumers about the importance of indoor air quality, Lennox Industries has entered into an educational cooperative agreement with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). The cooperative agreement will include awareness and education of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) for consumers. Health care providers will be targeted to assist in informing consumers in this educational campaign. “AAFA hopes through our educational agreement with Lennox, we will increase awareness of allergies and asthma and the role environmental factors, such as indoor air quality, play in proper management of these chronic and sometimes deadly illnesses," says Mary Worstell, executive director of AAFA. "A big component of the Lennox-AAFA agreement is education for consumers," says Tom Overs, product marketing manager of Lennox Industries. "AAFA is known for its advocacy of research and education of allergies and asthma. Now Lennox will apply the expertise available through AAFA to better educate consumers on the harmful effects of poor indoor air quality on individuals and families." Lennox Industries offers a complete line of IAQ products branded under the Healthy Climate[TM] name to meet consumers’ comfort and indoor air quality needs. The Healthy Climate family of products includes electronic air cleaners, whole-house humidifiers, high efficiency pleated filters, high-efficiency media air cleaners, and germicidal lights. AAFA, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1953, provides practical information, community based services, support, and referrals through a national network of chapters and educational support groups. AAFA also sponsors research toward better treatments and a cure for asthma and allergic diseases.
