With the threat of COVID-19 there are various steps you can take to help to slow the spread, such as washing hands, wearing gloves and masks, and social distancing. Now that people are spending more time than ever in their own homes, indoor air quality is an important issue. Your home should be a safe haven from the risk of contracting the coronavirus. You are probably disinfecting surfaces and frequently touched areas of your home like doorknobs and light switches. But if the virus is airborne, how can you clean the air?
There has been significant research carried out regarding HVAC and COVID 19. It has been questioned whether or not forced air systems can spread the virus, as well as the validity of air purification systems in eliminating the virus. Current findings state that HVAC use is safe and certain air purification systems may be help to reduce the presence of the virus in the air.
How iWave Technology Reduces Pathogens in the Air
When it comes to air purification systems, iWave is one of the most effective products on the market. iWave uses cutting edge technology to reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, and odors in the air, resulting in cleaner, fresher indoor air. iWave uses natural means to separate particles without releasing any harmful byproducts.
Using patented technology called needle-point bi-polar ionization, the air is infused with positive and negative ions that break down gases into less harmful elements like oxygen and nitrogen and compounds like carbon dioxide and water vapor. The ions are able to remove hydrogen from bacteria, mold, and most importantly viruses, which causes them to die from lack of energy. This is how iWave technology may be able to reduce the presence of COVID-19 in the air.
iWave Works With Your HVAC System to Create a Healthier Environment
Conveniently, iWave can be installed in your duct HVAC system so that the air passes over it every time your heat or AC runs. As the air circulates through your HVAC system and throughout your home it is being purified. Viruses, bacteria, and allergens are being eliminated from the air in a constant cycle, also preventing them from settling on surfaces in your home. You and your family will enjoy a cleaner, healthier home now and in the future.
Low Maintenance for Years of Effective Performance
iWave is self-cleaning with no replacement parts, meaning you can enjoy years of maintenance-free air purification. With no maintenance, the initial cost of the system and installation is the only expense you will have. Other systems include filter and bulb replacement as well as other maintenance. But after iWave is installed you can simply forget about it.
