The Benefits of Ceiling Diffusers in Hospitals and Clinics

At Comfort First Products, we’ve worked with hospitals and clinics of all sizes, helping them find the right ceiling diffusers for their buildings. These diffusers work to filter out germs, viruses, and allergens, as well as provide proper airflow for the building. With indoor air quality and hygiene being of the utmost importance for hospitals and other medical spaces, air diffusers can be an ideal choice.

Not Water-Based

Many diffusers that are used in residential and commercial spaces are water-based, which means they rely on water to create a spray to combat odors and eliminate bacteria. This can lead to condensation in certain areas, which is not something a hospital or urgent care clinic should have. A ceiling diffuser uses air to filter and remove airborne particles, which means there’s no water tank to refill or check every few hours.


Minimize Airborne Contaminants and Bacteria

Hospitals have protocols they must follow for health and safety, including masks, gowns, and other personal protective equipment (PPE). However, there are still airborne contaminants and bacteria that can make their way into the building’s ventilation system, which is where the diffuser plays an important role. By filtering the air entering a room, the risk of allergens and bacteria is significantly reduced, even when PPE is being used.

Provide Comfortable Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality, when defined broadly, consists of the environment inside a building that contributes to comfort, health, and performance as it pertains to humidity levels, air temperature, and any pollutants. With diffusers, hospitals and clinics can ensure that there is proper airflow for all areas of the structure, keeping patients, staff, and visitors comfortable and healthy, as well as protected from indoor pollutants.

Air diverter and filter

MERV 12 and 14 Compliant

An air filter’s minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) measures how effective the filter is at capturing contaminants. The higher the MERV rating, the better the filter is at stopping microscopic particles from entering the air stream. For hospitals and other medical settings, MERV 12 and 14 filters are required. Our diffusers use both MERV 12 and 14 filters, so you can choose the correct option for your needs.
