Aire Limpio is a group of companies specialising in products and services for Indoor Environmental Quality with special attention to the health and well-being of people, energy efficiency and air quality in buildings.
Established in 1999, this Spanish-financed company is a leader in this sector.
Main areas of action:
Aire Limpio is a leader in air filtration, ventilation and purification solutions. We work both in buildings in use, and in new projects and large renovations, in addition to working with professionals from the technical installations sector in public and private buildings, complying with the strictest RITE building regulations.
We also have extensive experience in hospitals, in the rehabilitation and adaptation of Isolated Environments such as rooms for immunosuppressed patients, infectious patients, laboratories, ICU boxes, pharmacy and emergency services, as well as the installation of Active Polarisation, UVGI and Photocatalysis, both in the ducting and general air conditioning systems of hospitals.
In January 2006, we created AMBISALUD Calidad Ambiental S.L., a company specialising in Environmental Quality for Buildings and Hospitals and formed by a multidisciplinary work team made up entirely of Indoor Environmental Quality Technicians (FEDECAI).
AMBISALUD periodically analyses environmental quality in the most iconic buildings in Spain and has solid experience in the hospital sector, and more specifically, in conducting validation studies of operating rooms and controlled environment rooms, as well as in the qualification of laboratory booths.
AMBISALUD was the first company in Spain to be certified ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 by AENOR with the specific scope of INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY INSPECTION for Buildings, Operating rooms and Controlled Environment Rooms in hospitals.
In January 2021, it acquired 100% of Commtech Commissioning Services from the Swedish multinational group, Fagerhult.
Commtech, founded in 2002, specialises in Commissioning Services and Commissioning Operations and Testing, both in new and refurbished and existing buildings, as well as in mission-critical environments. It is accredited by the American associations ACG (AABC Commissioning Group), BCxA (Building Commissioning Association), NEBB (National Environmental Balancing Bureau), and by the British Commissioning Specialists Association – CSA.
Commissioning is the process that verifies and documents that all the equipment, facilities and systems of a building or an infrastructure are designed, assembled and tested to operate in accordance with the operational requirements of the property or user, and to be able to be managed by properly trained operators and maintenance staff. Commissioning enables environments that are more comfortable, efficient, reliable, safe and sustainable.
Aire Limpio is a company with a genuine concern for the health and well-being of people, and for the sustainability and energy efficiency of buildings.
Buildings account for more than 40% of all energy consumption in Europe and 36% of CO2 emissions; in addition, outdoor air is highly polluted and unsuitable for use in ventilation without adequate filtration.
Buildings are either over- or under-ventilated, wasting energy and creating Indoor Air Quality problems, therefore the air in a building is an expensive resource that has implications on the health and comfort of users, which is why it must be managed in an intelligent manner.
At Aire Limpio we work to help people live and work in healthy and sustainable environments, improving the indoor air quality of the buildings in which they live and work to achieve greater well-being and health, thus improving their living and working conditions.
We optimise the energy efficiency of buildings. We reduce energy consumption and operating costs of ventilation systems to achieve a sustainable and environmentally-friendly environment.

Compliance with RITE regulations
RITE (Regulations on Thermal Installations in Buildings) require the ventilation and air conditioning installations of buildings to meet minimum requirements for energy efficiency and Indoor Air Quality (article 11) establishing Technical Instructions for filtration that are Mandatory (IT126.96.36.199.2) (IT188.8.131.52.3).
RITE regulations also classify Outdoor Air Quality (ODA) in five levels. Depending on outdoor quality (ODA) and the location of the building, minimum levels of filtration are required according to its IDA.
ODA Outdoor Air Quality
- ODA 1: Pure air which is only temporarily dusty, for example, with pollen.
- ODA 2: Outdoor air with high concentrations of gaseous pollutants and/or particles
- ODA 3: Outdoor air with very high concentrations of gaseous pollutants (ODA G) and/or particles (ODA 3P)
IDA Indoor Air Quality
- IDA 1: Optimum quality air, this would be the case of Hospitals, Clinics, Laboratories and Childcare facilities
- IDA 2: Good quality air, this would be the case of Offices, Museums, Courts, Classrooms and Swimming Pools
- IDA 3: Medium quality air, this would be the case of Commercial Buildings, Cinemas, Theatres and Gyms
- IDA 4: Low quality air
