Per the EPA, evidence indicates the air within homes and other buildings is far more polluted than we originally believed, even greater that outdoor air in large, industrial cities.
But what makes our home air so polluted? When air circulates through our HVAC systems, so do many contaminants and allergens, such as dust, mold and pollen. The air quality continues to be worsened by a lack of proper ventilation or inefficient airflow.
When gases and allergens are present in our air, they get breathed into our lungs, often causing feelings of prolonged sickness or sensitivity to allergens. This discomfort and health hazard should not be present in our homes. Our homes should be a safe-haven, not a danger zone filled with carbon monoxide and other pollutants.
Indoor air quality is one of the EPA’s top five environmental risks to public health.
• 75% of Americans live with someone who suffers from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory illnesses.
• Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to asthma, headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue.
• Common indoor air pollutants include dust mites, pollen, mold, bug waste radon, carbon monoxide, excessive carbon dioxide, and other chemical fumes.
• Pollution inside is often 9 times worse than the air outdoors. Sometimes it can be as high as 100 times worse.
• Secondhand smoke from tobacco products contains about 4,000 chemicals, including 200 known poisons.• Secondhand smoke causes over 150,000 respiratory problems in infants and 41,000 deaths annually.• Only 27% of Americans have carbon monoxide detectors in their homes. Carbon monoxide is a gas that can stop coordination, worsen heart conditions, and at very high levels, can cause death.

An ion is an atom or molecule with an electric charge. Ions are very, very small. Some ions are positively charged (cation) and others are negatively charged (anion). Ions are all around us and come from both natural and man-made sources.
We feel alive when we are near waterfalls, a natural spring, when it rains, and when walking on the beach or in the woods, and this is because negative ions are in abundance in nature. Negative ions counteract the positive ions and the dangerous free radicals that positive ions cause, leaving us feeling invigorated, energized, and healthier.
Exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, pesticides, dust, soot, radiation from power lines, cell phones, computers, and electrical appliances all give off positive ions, creating free radical molecules which are harmful to the body. Aging, tissue damage, and some diseases are all linked to free radicals.
Quality Air of the Carolinas is proud to offer the iWave-R, the world’s first self-cleaning, no maintenance needlepoint, bi-polar ionization generator designed specifically for treating air in residential duct air conditioning systems. As the air flows past the iWave-R, positive and negative ions actively purify the supply air, killing mold, bacteria and viruses in the coil and living space. The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke and static electricity, as well as controls odors (cooking, pet, VOCs) and other particulates in the air without creating ozone or other harmful byproducts. iWave-R treats the air in any brand of residential duct air conditioning systems up to 6 tons (2400 CFM) in size with no maintenance and no replacement parts. Designed for universal mounting, the iWave-R can be installed inside or outside the duct, or attached magnetically near the indoor fan in the air handler. We Install this device between your HVAC's air filter and cooling coil to treat the indoor coil.
The bi-polar ionization always works at peak performance, producing over 160 million ions/cc, more than any other ionizer product on the market. Its patent-pending, self-cleaning design includes a programmable cleaning cycle that can clean the emitter brushes every one, three, five, or 10 days. This new technology brings you best-in-market purification results, while eliminating expensive maintenance, replacement bulbs and parts that came with past air-purification technology.
These days we are bombarded with information about exercise and diets free from additives and preservatives for a healthy lifestyle, yet clean air as a frontline of defense for health has not yet become common knowledge.
