To understand why many of today's health problems can be caused by the home you live in, you need to look back a few years to see what caused this to happen. You see, during the energy crisis of the early 1970s, highly insulated homes became popular because of their potential to reduce energy costs.
Within a few years, however, complaints started to arise, due to health, and excessive moisture issues caused by indoor pollution, within these homes.
In the late 1980s and early 90s, indoor air quality became a nationally recognized issue. Even today, newer and more energy-efficient homes seem predisposed to the problem. In addition, they retain more humidity and airborne pollutants, which cause longer life-spans, and more productive cycles of microbial activity within the home. Examples of this are mold, germs, bacteria and viruses.
This greater activity and concentration of these airborne contaminants, equates to more allergic reactions, and sickness within families for longer periods of time.
The Clean Air Defense System AirRanger™ whole house polarized-media electronic air cleaner installs directly into the 1” filter rack(s) in the existing heating and cooling system. Its electronically enhanced media combines elements of both electronic and media air cleaners. Particles are electrically charged (polarized) and then collected in the high efficiency media. Polarized sub-micron particles join with other particles and are collected on subsequent passes.
BioForce Defender™ Germicidal UVC Lamp Model AD-401H is a whole house system that installs directly into the central heating and cooling system ductwork or plenum. The high intensity Dual-Radiant™ UVC “H” Lamp disinfects the air by neutralizing airborne pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and mold. According to the EPA, the combined use of filtration and germicidal UVC light is an effective means of preventing the distribution of airborne viruses in occupied spaces.
With ultraviolet light, microwatts translate to effectiveness. The AD-401H-16 (16” lamp) produces a very high output of 180 microwatts which is significantly higher than many other UVC lamps.
The AD-401H-16-RF and AD-401H-12-RF feature the Reflex™ reflective lamp which contains a polymer coating on one side of the UVC lamp to focus UVC light in only one direction.
