One of the Most Dangerous Things You Do Is Breathe Re-circulating Air!
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.
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.
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.
The UVC (254 nm) and UVV (187 nm) light produced by Sanuvox UV Systems are the same two UV wavelengths produced by the Sun. The UVC wavelength attacks the microorganism on a molecular level deactivating and destroying the contaminant while the UVV wavelength oxidizes the chemicals and odors into odorless inoffensive by-products.
Unlike conventional UV “sticklights” on the market, Sanuvox UV Air Purification Systems use a patented process designed to deliver the maximum UV dosage to the moving air-stream.
With a 3 year Lamp life, the proprietary 18″ high-intesity UV ‘J’ Lamp has all the advantages of having the intensity of two UV Lamps with the replacement cost of only one. The combination UVC & UVV wavelengths incorporated into one Lamp make biological, chemical and odor destruction possible.
By using a Turbulator to spin the air as it enters the Reflector Chamber, the Sanuvox process guarantees that the air receives the maximum UV dosage possible. Dwell (contact) Time between the air and the UV light is also increased, resulting in higher destruction rates. The Aluminum Reflector Chamber contains and reflects the UV energy deliverAre37c3eiaa901ng maximum efficiency.
Because the two legs of the UV Lamp and the Reflector Chamber are mounted parallel to the air-stream, the dwell time between the air and the UV light is exponentially increased. The longer the air is in contact with UV light, the more UV energy can be delivered to the air-stream, resulting in a higher destruction rate.
