Air Purifier Benefits – Is it worth the hype?

Have you heard about the benefits of air purifiers, and you’re wondering what the hype is all about? Whether you’re a healthy person with no respiratory issues, or maybe you’re someone who suffers from allergies and asthma. Whatever the case, everyone will reap the benefits of breathing cleaner air from an air purifier!

Benefits of Air Purifiers

Installing an air purifier will increase the indoor air quality in your home. In fact, they can be beneficial for those with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues. Air purifiers work to remove small molecules like viruses, particles, and bacteria in the air. Some other benefits of air ionizers include the removal of:

  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Particles
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Pet Dander
  • Viruses
  • Smoke
  • Odors

iWave-R Air Ionizer

Dust, smoke, odors and certain viruses and bacteria all can be suspended in the air you breathe, even when you don’t see them. The iWave-R Air Ionization System installs directly in your air conditioning system, helping to clean the air in your living space. How does this work? When air passes over the device, ions produced help reduce airborne particles, helping to create a cleaner environment.

How Does the Air Purifier work?

It uses patented needlepoint bipolar ionization technology to create positive and negative ions. When these ions are introduced into the air stream, they attach themselves to particles in the air. When the ions come in contact with certain VOCs, pollutants, airborne gases and other particles, they band together and become larger so they are easily captured by your system’s air filter. You don’t have to worry about ozone or any other harmful byproducts when using this system.

This device can be installed easily into your already existing HVAC equipment. Once installed, the ions injected into the airstream break down harmful pollutants and gases and turn them into harmless compounds such as water vapor, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. The ions created by this device attach themselves to pollen, allergens, smoke, airborne particles, and more. The particles then continue to attach to each other until they are heavy enough to be moved by the air current and caught in the air filter in your HVAC system. These pollutants don’t end up on the surfaces of your home. Rather, they are collected on your air filter that is changed every 3 months depending on the thickness of your filter. The thicker your filter the less you need to change it. For example, if it’s one inch thick you should change it monthly; however, if it’s six inches thick you should change it every six months.

When the ions come in contact with the bacteria, viruses, or mold, they remove the hydrogen atom from the pathogens. Without hydrogen, the pathogens have no energy and can’t survive.
