As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all been spending a lot of time at home. That’s why it’s more important than ever to make indoor air quality a priority. W.G. Speeks continues to find new ways to make the air inside your home cleaner and fresher, which is why our lineup now includes the iWave air purification system. In fact, laboratory tests have shown that this air purifier can dramatically reduce human coronaviruses! Let’s go over some of the most important features.
What Is Indoor Air Quality?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.”
Here are some of the common contributors to poor indoor air quality:
- Insufficient ventilation system
- Mold and mildew caused by humidity
- Moisture damage
- Dust mites
- Chemical cleaning products and pesticides
- Construction materials containing asbestos, lead, and formaldehyde
- Cigarette smoke
- Indoor pets
You may experience negative health effects from indoor air pollutants soon after exposure or even years later. To reduce your risk, it’s important to understand and control common pollutants inside of your home.
Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
There’s no place like home, which is why you deserve to breathe easy in every part of your house. Unfortunately, this is an aspect of homeownership that too often goes overlooked. Poor indoor air quality can take a toll on your body, though.
Do you experience any of the following on a regular basis?
- Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin
- Sinus congestion
- Shortness of breath or respiratory issues
- Coughing and sneezing
- Worsening allergies
If so, you could have an indoor air quality problem. Don’t wait for things to get worse before you do something. Reaching out to a professional will give you the guidance you need to make your home a more comfortable, healthy place to live.
iWave Air Purifying Systems
Using patented technology, iWave air purification systems rely on needle-point bi-polar ionization to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions. Injecting these ions into the air stream transforms pollutants and gases into harmless compounds such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water vapor.
Upon contact with contaminants such as bacteria, mold, and viruses, the ions work to remove the hydrogen molecules. Without this source of energy, the pathogens will die. The ions also push allergen particles together, making them large enough to be caught by your home’s air filter.
Concerned about the technology? Don’t worry. The iWave air purifying system “generates the same ions that nature creates with lightning, waterfalls, ocean waves, etc. Nature uses energy and shear to break apart molecules, naturally cleaning the air and producing a healthy environment.” Click here to learn more about how iWave works.
Does the iWave Kill COVID-19?
You may be wondering if the iWave system can help clear specific viruses from your home. When we discussed whether your HVAC’s air filter can kill coronavirus, we shared that, short of investing in an industrial air purifier, the best a HEPA filter could do is potentially trap virus particles, but not destroy them.
Products in the iWave family undergo independent lab testing. Recent tests have shown that, after 10 minutes, the air purifying system was able to render 84.2% of SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) particles inactive. After 30 minutes, there was a 99.4% rate of reduction. The results suggest that having the iWave during this pandemic could be beneficial to your health and well-being.
