Why Choose Advanced Air Products?
Both the Advanced Air IDES and In-Duct BiPolar Ionization Systems are easily installed into any existing HVAC system and use proactive air purification technology to reduce airborne pollutants from indoor air. Indoor air pollution can be broken down into 3 components: Particulates (Dust), Pathogens (Viruses, Germs, Bacteria, Mold Spores & other Micro-organisms) and Chemicals which are often referred to as VOC’s.
Standard filters including MERV rated and
HEPA filters are really only effective at
capturing the Particulate component of
indoor air pollution; as most pathogens and
all chemical/gaseous pollutants (VOC's) are
much smaller in size and unfortunately pass
right through these standard filters.
This means that 2 out of the 3 components
to indoor air pollution are not removed from
the air and go untreated.
Passive / Reactive Air Purification
Proactive Air Purification
Passive / Reactive Air Purification:
Most people are familiar with passive / reactive air purification, as it is what most HVAC and air purifiers use. This method requires air to pass through a filter in order for it to be cleaned, which unfortunately has two prominent downfalls.
Problem 1: In many cases a substantial portion of pollutants in the air are never removed as they are never drawn through the filtration system or filter.
Problem 2: Many pollutants, especially pathogens and chemicals/gases (VOC’s) are much smaller in size then what many filters including HEPA filters can capture. As a result, they pass through filters and unfortunately are not removed from the air.
Standard MERV and many HEPA filters cannot stop or trap VOC's or most Pathogens as they are too small and pass right through these filters.
Proactive Air Purification used by Advanced Air's IDES and BiPolar Ionizer Systems:
The Advanced Air In-Duct Environmental System or “IDES” and BiPolar Ionizers use a proactive air purification approach to clean indoor air in any sized space; using either Advanced Air Technology to create advanced purifying super oxides or needlepoint bipolar ionization to create hundreds of millions of positive and negative ions.
These highly reactive super oxides
or ions are sent out through the
air stream in the home or buildings
HVAC system where they seek
and attack airborne pollutants
such as pathogens (viruses,
germs, bacteria, mold spores,
microorganisms) as well as
harmful chemicals and gases
known as VOC’s.
This proactive air purification
method means pollutants are
removed precisely where they
arise. Instead of waiting until
pollutants are drawn back through
the HVAC system to pass through a
filter which can take hours, days
and in some cases, they are never
drawn back through a filter before
we breathe them in. The advanced
purifying super oxidizers emitted by
the Advanced Air IDES or Ions
emitted by our BiPolar Ionizers are
dispersed throughout a building and
become present in the ambient air where they remove pollutants as they enter the air. This means the air itself helps purify and protects against pollutants.
