Air Health uv home air sanitizer uses UV light to purify indoor air
Air Health AH-1 Ultraviolet Air Sanitizer uses ultraviolet light to neutralize airborne bacteria, molds, and dust mites (replaces Phase 2).
Installed in the main supply or return duct of a forced air heating or air conditioning system, Air Health UV Home Air Sanitizer operates continuously to purify the air in your home 24 hours a day. Emits powerful ultraviolet (UV) light, which sterilizes and reduces airborne microorganisms as they pass through the system.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION: The two primary benefits to using UV light are disinfecting air and preventing growth of mold. The UV light radiates a surface to keep mold from growing in that area and disinfects the air stream as it passes through the HVAC system.
In one pass over the UV lamp, a high disinfection rate is not normally accomplished in the air stream. However, the home's air is recirculated more than 50 times a day during normal operation of the heating or air conditioning system. Continued exposure to Air Health reduces airborne contamination, improving the indoor air quality of the entire home. With repeated circulation of air through the system, a major disinfection rate is accomplished, making use of UV light very positive.
Air Health whole house air purifier helps protect your most valuable asset, your family's health. Ultraviolet purification helps reduce the symptoms of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems resulting in less work and school missed due to illness. According to Richard Riley, M.D., "...ultraviolet radiation, properly integrated with heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems, shows the most promise as a widely applicable means of air disinfection." The process of ultraviolet purification, used by hospitals, schools, day care centers, restaurants, and hotels, is now available for the homeowner in the Air Health.
Installation generally takes about 1/2 hour. The best location for Air Health is over the air conditioning coil. This will treat the indoor air while simultaneously keeping the coil clean. The next most suitable location is in the return air duct, preferably downstream of the filter.
Works on all types of forced warm air furnaces and split unit heat pumps. Air Health is designed for indoor mounting only. Plugs into any standard 120V outlet.
For maximum effectiveness, the manufacturer recommends the use of a high-quality 90% to 95% filtration-rated air filter or electronic air filter. Most filters of this type are rated down to the 0.3 micron particle size. In addition, the manufacturer recommends that the lamp be cleaned quarterly and replaced annually.
Effective for areas up to 2000 square feet. Larger homes require two (2) units. (When installing two Air Health units, place one over the air conditioning coil in the supply and one in the return.) Ducts must be at least 16" wide. 120 volts; 60 Hz; 0.5 amps; 30 watts; 6' power cord; UL approved. Includes video, instruction manual, and safety glasses.
