Why do you need an air treatment system?
We seal our homes and buildings tightly to save energy; to not spend money and natural resources heating and cooling air, only to let it escape outside. A major downside to this is not being able to bring in enough fresh outside air to lower the concentrations of biological & chemical contaminants within the home. These airborne contaminants include viruses, bacteria, mold, chemicals, VOCs, fumes and odors.
As a result of implementing these important energy saving measures, the concentrations of airborne contaminants continually rise in the home. According to the EPA, “indoor levels of pollutants inside the home may be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels” and these contaminants continually circulate throughout the home’s ventilation system.
The Sun & UV Rays
The Sun delivers specific UV wavelengths that destroy and deactivate biological and chemical contaminants that are introduced into the atmosphere. Just like the Sun’s UVC and UVV rays, Sanuvox UV Systems produce the exact same UV wavelengths, bringing the same natural process into homes and buildings. In-Duct Sanuvox UV Air Purification Systems continuously destroy the bio-chemical contaminants as they circulate through the home, resulting in a true whole-home air treatment system.
A filter is not an air purifier
Many of us use filters in our home’s ventilation system to remove harmful particulates from the air. Biological and chemical contaminants such as mold, bacteria, viruses, allergens, cooking and pet odors, cigarette smoke, and a host of other airborne pollutants are so small that they pass through even the highest efficiency filters like sand through a tennis racket.
