Indoor air quality may seem negligible compared to the outdoors, but the poor air quality inside homes in Shawnee and surrounding areas contributes to allergies, headaches, chronic illnesses, and much more. As you look around for an air purifier, a standalone unit may seem like the best option. The affordability and convenience of small units attract many consumers, but they are often disappointed.
Small portable units are designed to clean air in only a small part of your house, leaving a significant number of airborne particles to circulate throughout your residence. A better option is whole-home air purification with the iWave system.
What Is the iWave System?
Many airborne particles are too small to be captured by standard filters in heating and cooling systems. Instead, the particles pass through the filters, through the vents, and into the rooms of your home. The iWave air purifier from Air Care Heating & Cooling is a unit that fits inside your existing heating and cooling system. As air flows through the ductwork, it passes through the iWave.
The unit emits ions that interact with airborne particles, such as pet dander, allergens, smoke, bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. Ionization makes these particles stick together to form larger particulates that are easily trapped by the filters in your HVAC system. The ions also damage mold spores, viruses, and bacteria so that they become harmless to your family.
iWave vs. Houseplants for Indoor Air Quality
Several studies have shown that houseplants can improve indoor air quality, but this option is limited to carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and other gases. Houseplants cannot remove dust, mold, pet dander, and other particles from the air. With the iWave system, you get the best of both worlds. The ionizing process breaks down harmful gases in your Shawnee home into oxygen, water vapor, nitrogen, and other harmless gases.
iWave vs. Other HVAC Air Purification Systems
Other air purification systems that fit inside your HVAC system rely on ultraviolet light to kill viruses, bacteria, and mold. For optimum performance, you need to change the bulbs in these units every 12 to 24 months. Considering where the units are located in your HVAC system, this can be challenging, even for the most experienced DIY homeowner. iWave does not rely on bulbs to improve air quality.
Ease of Maintenance
Depending on the model that you choose, there is little to no maintenance required, and there are no parts that need to be replaced over the lifetime of the unit. iWave units are even self-cleaning. Air Care Heating & Cooling offers standard residential iWave systems, along with units for smaller houses and ductless heating and cooling units.
Safe and Effective Air Purification for Homes
Studies have shown that breathing in particles that are 2.5 microns in size or smaller increases your risk for certain illnesses, such as allergies, asthma, sinus infections, and upper respiratory infections. Elderly people are at higher risk for respiratory illnesses as well as lung and heart disease.
In children, breathing in particles that are 2.5 microns or smaller has shown to reduce lung development, leading to chronic respiratory illnesses in the future. The iWave ionization air purification process is proven to significantly reduce the number of harmful particles in your residence, giving your family a safe and healthy environment.
Installing iWave in Your Home
The iWave air purification system requires no modifications to your current HVAC system and ductwork. The unit can be mounted near the fan of the air handler or on the external or internal surface of the ductwork. The experts at Air Care Heating & Cooling will recommend the best positioning of the iWave unit for your house. We will also program the auto-clean function that can be set for one, three, five, or 10 days. The unit can operate continuously or only when your HVAC equipment runs.
