Did you know that you can reduce your own environmental impact, save energy and optimize your indoor air comfort? If you have an HVAC system, it’s actually much easier than you might think to make your indoor air better. Even if you’ve never heard of Ignaz Semmelweis, you probably follow his advice multiple times a day.
Even though the Flu is a respiratory illness, it is generally not transmitted by air (unless in close proximity). Indoor Odors: Why does my kid’s room still smell like stinky socks after I’ve done the laundry?
If you’re struggling to control foul odors coming from your kid’s room, then this article is for you. When titanium dioxide (TiO2) is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, highly reactive molecules called superoxide ions are formed.
Over the past few weeks, we have discussed the importance of scheduled replacements of UV lamps and air filters to keep indoor air quality optimized.
The frequency of changing a UV lamp for effective indoor air quality improvement depends on how you are using the system. We all agree that having central air conditioning and heating can be a blessing, but it can also carry a bit of a curse.

92000 BTU Furnace, 92.1% Efficiency, Single-Stage Burner, 1600 CFM Multi-Speed Blower, Upflow Application. Air Oasis 9" Induct Air Purifier perfect for your apartment, home or office to remove odors, bacteria, viruses, mold and other air and surface impurities through your central HVAC system. This air purifier removes contaminants and purifies the air in 3000 square feet of space through your central HVAC system.
The Air Oasis combines proven methods of purification including negative ions, PCO and UV germicidal light to remove a wide spectrum of impurities from the air in your home. The Nano Induct Air Purifiers are designed to be installed into the ductwork of your HVAC system.
Above Coils: The Nano Induct Air Purifier should be mounted directly above the coils with the UV shields rotated 90° to the open position. Reduce contaminants in ductwork: In residential or light commercial applications, a single unit can be mounted in the plenum on the supply side of the HVAC system.
In large Commercial Applications: Air can become recontaminated as it travels through the ductwork, therefore it may be necessary to mount several NANO induct units throughout the ductwork to ensure the best possible contaminant removal in large commercial facilites.
Reduce contaminants in a room: The Nano Induct Air Purifier should be installed in close proximity to the air outlet vent that supplies the air to the room being treated most. In addition, Air Oasis offers many other options for contaminant removal including mobile air purifiers, free-standing home or office air purifiers and commercial air purifiers. Air Oasis Air Purifiers work using a Proprietary patent-pending Nano Nickel HCT Catalyst that is created from a secret blend of five rare catalyst metals. Because of this, the Air Oasis Air Purifiers have the ability to eliminate particles down to 0.001 microns in size which includes the ultra-tiny particles that are most harmful to your lungs. Air Oasis Home Air purifiers actually use a blanket of cleaning agents (super-oxide ions and hydroxyl radicals) that destroy living microorganisms like bacteria, viruses and germs by attacking there reproductive function and rendering them harmless. This technology has been used for years in hospital settings to disinfect equipment, in meat-packing plants to reduce the amount of contamination and dentists offices to keep germs at bay.
By using the same broad spectrum 254 nm UV Light as created by the sun, Air Oasis can achieve the same oxidizing and ionizing benefits found in nature. Contractors around the world have been complaining that UV light leads to premature system failure because the UV light can degrade many of the rubbers and plastics inside the HVAC system even though the air purification aspect of UV light is phenominal. Air Oasis took the NASA developed Ethylene Scrubber technology and enhanced it making it far superior to any other product available in our industry.
Air Oasis Air Purifiers stand out, not only because of there blend of 5 rare catalyst metals but also because of there Proprietary Long-Life Coating™ on the UV lamps to allow the UV Lamps to outlast any lamp on the market. This coating is applied to all the UV Germicidal Lamps eliminating the problem of quicker depreciation associated with higher intensity lamps.
An all-around great decision and investment in your health and the health of our environment. Air Oasis is not made from cheap plastics, but made with high quality aluminum metal housings with metal internal brackets and other high quality metals and materials. Combined with the Long-Life Coating applied to the UV Germicidal Lamps, this makes the Air Oasis a superior investment in your health. Air Oasis Air Purifiers use less than 11 watts of energy saving you money and reducing the footprint of excessive energy waste compared to lots of air purifiers on the market which can use 100 watts or more to perform the same or worse.


In addition, filter-based units require replacement of filters every 6 months or more, thus creating a large problem for our landfills. Pollen grains are released by flowering plants following the particular season for pollen production specific for each plant species.

The ZAND-AIR PCOC™3 uses PHOTO-CATALYTIC OXIDIZING (PCO) technology and converts and neutralizes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), odors, fumes, and toxic chemicals to benign water and carbon dioxide by-products.
The ZAND-AIR PCOC™3 model carries an additional slot for an Activated Charcoal Filter (ACF) to absorb aldehydes remaining in the airflow.
In chemistry, photocatalysis is the acceleration of a photoreaction in the presence of a catalyst.
Its comprehension has been made possible since the discovery of water electrolysis by means of the titanium dioxide – TiO2. Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) is an emerging technology in the HVAC industry.[6] In addition to the prospect of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) benefits, it has the added potential for limiting the introduction of unconditioned air to the building space, thereby presenting an opportunity to achieve energy savings over previous prescriptive designs. In our equipment we use a patented process to affix TiO2 to a solid substrate, for this TiO2  to interact with UVC radiation at 253.7 nanometer (nm) which has the advantage that this wave length does not get adsorbed by the oxygen molecules, thus does not create any ozone – O3 (trioxygen). Using recirculating return air as part of the incoming airstream is thus helping in this cleaning process, as the return air already passed before through this photo-catalytic oxidation process.
NOTE: Placing several PCOC units sequentially increases the dwelling time for the UV light interaction with the photocatalyst, thus multiplying the decomposition of VOCs and pathogens.
Your ProgressiveMedia filter not only keeps the dust down in your home, it keeps dust and dirt off HVAC component parts optimizing heat transfer. By following a few simple steps, you can dramatically improve your indoor air quality with little muss or fuss. If you have trouble with odors in your home, consider installing an air purifier that goes beyond filtration. He discovered that there was a connection between washing your hands and spreading disease, which started the ball rolling on germ theory! In fact, according to the CDC over 5,000 people have been hospitalized already, and we’re not even through the season yet.
But Ultraviolet (UVC) light, a natural component of sunlight, eliminates many bacterium, viruses, odors and allergens by disrupting their DNA and rendering them harmless. While frequent laundering of gym socks is of course an excellent practice, there is a good reason why it might not solve the whole odor problem. But did you know that combining ultraviolet light disinfection and air filtration creates a comprehensive IAQ system that adds up to more than the sum of its parts?
Typically, a UV lamp being used primarily to disinfect the air circulating through a home or small office should be replaced every 9000 hours or approximately every 12 months. Other prizes include a custom Ultravation IAQ System for your home (up to $800 worth of Ultravation IAQ products), Amazon Kindle ($260 value), Apple IPod Touch ($250 value), and a $150 gift certificate to your favorite restaurant.

Consider the opportunities for your company with the UVMatrixFS, specifically created for  hospital rooms, public areas, and office spaces – a 100% quiet but effective air disinfection system that treats the naturally circulating air with focused UVC light. But we discovered something really important that will help the health of you conditioned space.
It has the ability to purify the air in your entire house from one small, yet powerful purifier. It should be installed near an electrical outlet unless choosing to hardwire the system into the electrical system.
The UV shield should be rotated to the closed position to prevent human exposure to UV rays. Most other air purifiers use a simple, cheap, singular, metal element as there catalyst which does not create the kind of kinetic rate of reaction as the Air Oasis blend of metals does.
By combining the unique Nano-Nickle HTC Catalyst™ technology with this spectrum of UV Light, Air Oasis is able to achieve unparalleled results in air purification! They've designed a rotating UV Shield that controls how much or how little of the UV light is emitted from the machine while still allowing the air to pass freely through it to be effectively treated. More than 20 years after NASA put the first man on the moon, they developed a technology to aid in the reduction of ethylene gas, thus increasing the shelf life of fresh produce. With the extension of hours that this Long-Life Coating™ creates, you can feel great knowing that you won't have to replace your UV Lamps as often, which in turn SAVES YOU MONEY AND HELPS REDUCE LAMP WASTE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!
Air Oasis Air Purifiers do not require any filters to be replaced and only require 1 replacement part every 2 years! To aid in the diagnosis and treatment and reduce the ailments of these individuals suffering from various indoor aeroallergens, a thorough understanding and control of the indoor aeroallergens and other airborne particles are necessary. As we recorded for the last five years the most significant aeroallergens of the Texas Panhandle were fungal spores from Alternaria, ascospores from Pezizales, Dreschlera, Cladosporium, Curvularia, and pollen from short ragweed, grass pollen, common sunflower, hairy sunflower, buffalo bur, purple nightshade, and lamb's quarter. This model consists of three chambers, each with photocatalytic grids to provide additional dwelling time for maximum breakup of the molecular structure of the VOCs passing in the airstream.
As of May 2009[7][8] there was no more disputable concern raised by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory data that PCO may significantly increase the amount of formaldehyde in real indoor environments.[9] As with other advanced technologies, sound engineering principles and practices should be employed by the HVAC designer to ensure proper application of the technology. If you have a loose juncture, gaps between the register and the wall, or even holes in the ductwork, those leaks can draw in dust from one part of your home, carry it through the HVAC system and dump it out the other end. Now that your leaky ductwork has been taken care of, capturing the dust, dirt, pet dander, and other large particle contamination that circulates with the air through your HVAC system is the next priority. Pairing UV light with Titanium Dioxide creates a process known as photocatalytic oxidation (PCO). Before his work, people had no idea that there was a connection between cleanliness and illness.
After picking up a bug at school, work or any other public place, we bring it home and spread it even further. By installing a UV light in your HVAC system, you can restrict the amount of germs that get re-circulated through your home, keeping you and your family healthier during this high Flu season.
If germs keep getting re-circulated through your home, you run the risk of being perpetually sick, weakening your immune system.


Odors can “leak” off stinky socks, a gym bag, or a moldy sandwich left under the bed for three weeks, and hang in the air.
They react beautifully with odor molecules (that are generally VOCs or volatile organic compounds), oxidizing them by “stealing” their electrons.
Ultravation’s T3 (Thermal Transfer Technology) UV lamp utilizes a quartz glass sleeve that encases the UV lamp, protecting it from the passing cold air in an HVAC system. By working together, these units can eliminate a much wider range of indoor air contaminants then they ever could separately.
For people with respiratory conditions or other acute sensitivities, we strongly recommend keeping to an annual lamp replacement schedule for the best control of airborne microorganisms and allergens. As air circulates through a home, airborne mold, bacteria and viruses are drawn into the HVAC system and accumulate on the cooling coils and in the drain pan. UltraMAX™ features advanced UVC lamp technology to disinfect the air and stop mold growth on HVAC coils and other interior HVAC surfaces.
A $5 donation to American Lung Association allows you three drives to win and Ultravation will match 100% of donations.
We always recommend hiring a professional and licensed HVAC contractor to install the air purifier and to help choose exactly where to place it. It simply produces a blanket of redundant oxidizers that will clean your air and sanitize surfaces at the same time. NASA later discovered the same technology effectively erradicated mold, bacteria, viruses, etc. Weather conditions and diurnal cycles play an integral role in the passive and active discharge of spore and pollen. Offices, working places and schools face the challenge of an increasing number of workers and children with pre-existing health conditions which are affected by the Indoor Air Quality and other environmental factors.
In photo-generated catalysis the photocatalytic activity (PCA) depends on the ability of the catalyst to create electron-hole pairs, which generate free radicals (hydroxyl radicals: •HO) able to undergo secondary reactions. There are several methods of achieving AOPs that can, but do not necessarily involve TiO2 or even the use of UV.
Photocatalytic oxidation systems are able to completely oxidize and degrade organic contaminants. We offer in addition Photo-Catalysis, the photocatalytic oxidation which not just filters but destroys VOCs, CACs, and biological pathogens. Calling your trusted HVAC contractor to come in and fix the leaks is an important first step toward good indoor air quality. Using a high quality filter (MERV 11 or MERV13) is the best way to collect as much contamination as possible.
All the air that circulates through the air handler must pass through this section of the system. The PCO process breaks up organics, eliminating stubborn odors from the air while doing away with airborne pathogens and allergens at the same time.
But you can help reduce or eliminate the spreading of germs throughout your home by using UV light in your air handler. Without proper ventilation, those smells can  penetrate the drywall, wood carpets and other materials in your home if left untreated long enough. This reaction causes the odor molecule to break apart and reform into simpler molecules —mostly CO2 and a little water vapor. This creates more UV output— up to 50% more germ and mold killing power – without using any additional energy, simply because it keeps the lamp at a more favorable operating temperature. These areas are ideal environments for mold to grow due to the moisture that condenses on surfaces as the air is dehumidified. Warm dry weather conditions promote passive dispersal of dry air spora, including Alternaria, Cladosporium, Curvularia, Pithomyces and many teliospores. That means all the air that is sent back into your living or working areas has passed through the mold and other bio-growth that is growing on the coil, which will take with it millions of mold spores.
PCO air purification is especially helpful if you are an avid home renovator because it oxidizes all airborne organics, including fumes from home projects like paint, new carpet smell, adhesives – all kinds of “off-gasing” materials. By reducing the amount of other germs you are exposed to, you give your body a better chance to fight off the Flu more quickly, if you should happen to catch it.
The creation of the superoxide ions and the reaction with odor molecules is known as photocatalytic oxidation.
It also uses the UV light to kill airborne bacteria and viruses – any type of airborne organic. Diurnal levels of these spores usually have peaks during the afternoon hours under the conditions of low humidity and maximum wind speeds. Indoor levels of air pollutants can be 2-5 times higher, and occasionally 100 times higher, than outdoor levels. Hydroxyl radicals are highly reactive and consequently short-lived; The first reaction with many volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is the removal of an hydrogen atom, forming water and an alkyl radical (R•).
Now, because the Flu is a direct and indirect contact virus, it is important to take other precautions as well. Long story short, PCO freshens the air by breaking up indoor air pollution as it passes through the HVAC filtration. Aside from the fact that mold growing anywhere in your home needs to be addressed, having it centrally distributed by your HVAC system raises major concerns about the health of everyone in the household.
Moist weather conditions promote the active dispersal of moist air spora, such as the explosive release of ascospores from Ascomycetes, and the expulsion of basidiospores from the gills of the Basidiomycetes. Surprisingly, nearly 55 million people, 20 percent of the US population, spend there days inside offices and schools. It stops odors without adding fragrances and other odor masking solutions that so-called “air fresheners” use. And there are no harmful byproducts released into the air since the PCO process results in harmless elements already found in the air. The neglect of IAQ can cause or contribute to short and long-term health problems including asthma, respiratory tract infection and disease, allergic reactions, headaches, nasal congestion, eye and skin irritation, coughing, sneezing, fatigue, dizziness and nausea.
