Air Purification 101

The most common methods of air purification are filtration, ionization and ozone generation. Most of today’s air purifiers use filters that clean the air by sucking it through one or more removable cartridges that trap and remove contaminants before releasing higher-quality air back into the home.

High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, capture 99.97% of the air’s particulates larger than 0.3 microns in size. Anything smaller is re-released into the air. While HEPA filters have successfully reduced particle pollution in the home, they are typically unable to reduce unwanted gaseous elements.

Ionization or Corona Discharge, which creates and disperses negatively charged particles called ions into the air, are supposed to attract and contain unwanted pollutants, but years of independent research has failed to substantiate any measurable reduction in airborne particles.

Ozone Generation is the third method typically used by today’s air purifiers. They release ozone (O3) into the air to eliminate odor pollutants, bacteria and organic matter. However, it has also come under fire from consumer groups and even the EPA, arguing that adding ozone to the home’s air is not only ineffective in eliminating contaminants but actually introduces more harmful contaminants into the air. “Relatively low amounts [of ozone] can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath and throat irritation,” warns the EPA. “Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and compromise the ability of the body to fight respiratory infections.”

STAINLESS-STEEL PRE-FILTER

A Stainless-Steel Pre-Filter that captures the larger particles, pollutants and allergens and traps them until you eliminate them forever by washing the filter.

BIO-GUARD FILTER

A high-tech Bio-Guard Filter that traps particles and pollutants such as lead, bacteria, dust mites, mold, mold spores, viruses, pollen and allergens as small as 0.09 microns (vs. 0.30 microns for most of today’s leading models), but also kills those viruses and bacteria, eliminating them forever.

OZONE EMISSIONS REMOVAL FILTER

An Ozone Emissions Removal Filter that eliminates all airborne pollutants including ozone emissions 70 times more effectively than EPA requirements.

HEPA/ACTIVATED CARBON FILTER

Lastly, a combination HEPA/Activated Carbon Filter that removes not only pollen, allergens, lead, dust mites, mould and mould spores, but also industrial emissions, VOCs such as benzene, formaldehyde, and other cleaning chemicals, and dangerous household fumes, cooking odours, smoke and nitrogen dioxides from gas stoves and car exhausts.
