We seal our homes and buildings tightly to save energy when heating or cooling. A major downside to this is being unable to bring enough fresh air inside to lower the concentration of biological and chemical contaminants within our homes.
As a result of implementing these important energy and money saving measures, airborne particles (allergens, viruses, spores, pollens, bacteria, mould, chemicals, VOCs, fumes and odors) are constantly rising. According to the EPA (The American Environmental Protection Agency), “indoor levels of pollutants inside the home may be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels” and these pollutants continually circulate throughout the home’s ventilation system.
Many of us use filters in our home’s ventilation system to remove harmful particles from the air. Although a filter
will help clean the air inside your home, airborne biological and chemical contaminants are so fine that they will pass through even the most efficient filters, such as sand in a tennis racket.
In these cases, a UV air purifier becomes the
A FILTER IS NOT AN AIR PURIFIER
THE SUN AND UV RAYS
The sun projects UV rays ( ultraviolet ) with specific wavelengths that destroy and deactivate contaminants that are in the atmosphere. Just like the UVC and UVV rays of the sun, Our UV air purification systems produce the same wavelengths, bringing the same natural process inside homes and buildings. Our systems, installed inside a ventilation duct, continually destroy contaminants as they travel through our homes, becoming a true
whole-home air purification system.
