Everyone – from families to employers – are looking for ways to create healthier environments and avoid exposure to Covid-19. With numbers that keep increasing, it’s just as important as ever to take precautions to protect yourself and those around you.
Wearing masks, washing hands, and keeping socially distant have become new ways of life for many. But now, in the ongoing fight for better air quality and healthier breathing environments, there’s a new ally in your corner. The iWave air purifier has been proven in independent tests to reduce a variety of pathogens both in the air and on hard, non-porous surfaces – including the Covid-19 virus.
Find out more about the advantages that this unit provides and how it works to keep the air you breathe cleaner, healthier and safer.
How iWave Has Been Shown To Inactivate Covid-19
iWave air purifiers are available in a variety of models, each with various features and advantages. Two models were tested, with both demonstrating the ability to inactivate a number of dangerous pathogens. The iWave-C, which can be used in both residential and commercial settings, was found specifically to inactivate the Covid-19 virus.
To conduct the study, the pathogen was placed in a chamber with the iWave. Within 10 minutes, over 84% of the virus was inactivated, and within 30 minutes, that number jumped to over 99%.
Other models, including the iWave-R, was shown to inactivate the Human Coronavirus 229E, which is one of a group of pathogens responsible for the colds that ail us each year. Within 60 minutes, 90% of this virus was inactivated as a result of iWave technology.
How It Works
The iWave is an air purifying device that’s installed right into your ducts. It emits ions using a unique and patented technology called needle-point bi-polar ionization, which creates equal amounts of positive and negative ions. As air passes over the unit, these ions are injected into the air stream where they begin to break down pollutants and reduce pathogens.
For everyday pollutants like common allergens, dust and smoke, iWave ions break them down into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor.
When the ions come into contact with more hazardous pollutants such as mold, bacteria and viruses, they remove hydrogen, which is the energy source for these pathogens. Without an energy source, the pathogens ultimately die.
But that’s not all – these unique ions have one more trick up their sleeve. They attach to pollutants and particles, causing them to band together and grow larger, which means they can be trapped and stopped by your HVAC’s air filter.
In fact, the iWave produces ions in the same way that Mother Nature creates them through lightning and waterfalls. This has been confirmed by third-party testing, too – a chamber test during use confirmed ozone levels _less than_ 0.00PPM.
That makes using this air purifier safe and natural, cleaning the air without producing harmful ozone, just as if you had stepped into the fresh air outside.
Care And Maintenance
You deserve a little good news this year – and that includes this fact: the iWave-C is a self-cleaning, no-maintenance unit. It includes waterproof housing so it can be installed indoors or outdoors.
And since it doesn’t use UV lights like other air purifiers, you will never have to replace a bulb. That makes its total cost of ownership lower than a number of other units.
The iWave-R offers the same maintenance-free, stress-free, always-working experience. And each offers a three-year warranty with installation by a licensed HVAC or electrical contractor.
Better Technology, Better Air
Air quality is a big deal. Poor air quality can lead to illness, allergies, headaches, fatigue, even loss of focus and memory. Unfortunately, the air you breathe is often laced with unseen and harmful pollutants, from cooking particles to vapors from cleaning chemicals, mold, allergens, candle smoke, fireplace soot and of course, bacteria and viruses.
While no air purifier is a guarantee against illness or the effects of pollution, using one can substantially reduce risk and improve your breathable air. During these trying times, every precaution is valuable. As homes, businesses, schools and other locations work to keep people healthy, the iWave can be a powerful line of defense against colds, flus, and the Covid-19 virus.
Continue to do your best and follow the CDC Guidelines when it comes to protecting your health, and let us know if you’re interested in adding the iWave to your arsenal. Installation is straightforward, and we take the utmost in care when visiting your home.
