3 Air Purification Systems that will keep your Indoor Environment Clean and Safe
Given the most recent news in the world today, clean air has never been such a hot topic. HVAC companies promote clean air every cold and flu season, however given the extreme circumstances the Covid-19 pandemic has caused, it seems this year it is even more top of mind. People have been asking what we have to keep bacteria, viruses and contaminants out of their households. We have 3 air purification systems that can help keep you safe in your own home.
Nu-Calgon Air Purification
This patented technology called needle-point bi-polar ionization uses carbon fibre brushes to produce a refined electrical charge to proactively and safely clean the air in residential and commercial buildings. This produces equal amounts of positive and negative ions (combined charge neutral) that react and break down pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, odours and VOCs in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts.
Nu-Calgon devices are bi-polar, meaning they use two emitters to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions. When these ions are injected into the air stream, creating a plasma region, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapour. When the ions come in contact with viruses, bacteria or mould, they remove the hydrogen molecules from the pathogens. Without hydrogen, the pathogens have no source of energy and will die. The ions also attach to allergens, such as pollen, smoke and other particles, causing them to band together until they are large enough to be caught by filters.
Introducing Trane CleanEffects, a patented whole-house air filtration system from the recognized industry leader. Designed from the ground up to clean the air like nothing before, CleanEffects makes the air in your home feel cleaner and fresher than you thought possible.
Trane CleanEffects uses a powerful, patented ifD corona field to charge incoming air, causing particles to adhere to the CleanEffects collection cells as air passes through. Since your furnace or air handler isn't struggling to work against a clogged filter, clean air flows freely. No other filtration system can compare. The fact is that CleanEffects efficiency would actually fall to zero before it would clog the collection cells and damage your furnace or air handler. Periodic maintenance by vacuuming the collector cells and cleaning the charger restores the cleaning efficiency to within 2% of previous level.
In 2016 AAFA test results showed that CleanEffects measured actual removal rates, of particulates, allergens, and viruses from the air in real world conditions similar to your home environment. This is the first whole home filtration system to meet the standards established by AAFA and ASL.
Airscreen 1000 is a 1 inch electronic air cleaner and operates on the principal of bi-polarization. It creates a polarized charge on the media pads inside the filter. This safe and simple process turns the Airscreen 1000 into a giant magnet that captures airborne contaminants such as smoke, dust, bacteria, viruses and mould.
The low pressure drop means big savings in electrical, hearing and cooling costs - affordably priced with very low annual maintenance costs. The unique pop up corners and maintenance a snap.
