Clean air is something that we don’t take for granted at Ease Air. According to the EPA, Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, and maybe more over the past year, so why would we not emphasize the importance of the air we are breathing inside our homes, workplaces, and schools? September 7th is International Day of Clean Air, and we want to do our part to help you take a breath of fresh air inside your home.
Studies have shown that Indoor Air Quality can reduce respiratory illness by up to 76% by balancing humidity and improving air circulation, so how do homeowners practically improve the air quality inside their homes?
First and foremost, it’s important to know where the air pollutants could be coming from. Common causes are pollen, dust, pet dander, chemicals from cleaning products or air fresheners, mold, smoke or many others. So, even if you are keeping your home clean, there are particles floating through the air that affect your indoor air quality. In fact, the EPA has found that indoor air pollutants are often 2-5 times worse than outdoor air pollutants.
Additionally, the air exchange rate, air that flows through the home through openings like cracks in between doors and windows, can also have an effect on your home’s indoor air quality. It’s important to have the right amount of ventilation so that your air can be as fresh and clean as possible.
Our expert HVAC technicians can help you evaluate your home or office’s indoor air quality and make recommendations on products that can help keep your air clean all year long. Products like the iWave Home Purification System.
Many purification devices require ongoing maintenance and some may not completely kill all of the bacteria that it comes into contact with. However, the iWave is an economically and financially smart choice for any home or office.
The iWave uses needle-point bi-polar ionization to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions which break down passing pollutants and gasses into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor. When these ions come in contact with viruses, mold, or bacteria, they remove hydrogen molecules – without them, the pathogens have no source of energy and will die.
Not only does the iWave do what it says it will do, but it’s also low-maintenance. The iWave is installed into your HVAC system and requires little to no maintenance while still performing in excellent condition.
