Airwise Air Purifiers
The air in the average home holds approximately one-million particles per cubic foot. In a day’s time, you breathe some 500 million particles (or two heaping tablespoons of airborne particles); which can lead to colds, flu, allergies, asthma and respiratory disease. And when you consider that you spend 90% of your time indoors, doesn’t it make sense to ensure that you’re breathing the purest air possible?
Unfortunately, good housekeeping alone can’t solve the problem (no matter how often or thorough). Airwise Purifiers are designed for continuous operation—preventing the inhaling of the many hazardous substances found in even the cleanest homes.
Why you need air purifiers
It’s your health
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air is 2 to 5 times, and sometimes more than 100 times, more polluted than outdoor air. And an indoor air pollutant is 1,000 times more likely to reach your lungs than an outdoor pollutant.
Sniffles, a scratchy throat or watery eyes don’t necessarily mean you’re sick with a cold or the flu; the air in your home could be making you sick. In reality, about 50% of all illnesses are caused by, or aggravated by, indoor air pollution.
3 major types
Let’s take a look at the three major types of pollution:
Small Particulate Matter
Less than 1% of particulate matter measures more than 10 microns and is visible to the naked eye. Examples include pollen, ash, dander and aerosol mist. By contrast, over 98% measures less than 1 micron and would require a powerful microscope to be seen (a human hair averages to to 120 microns across).
Airwise employs a process called PHO•TO•CA•TAL•Y•SIS. Put simply, this works to oxidize (destroy) organic odors, microorganisms, algae, fungi, parasites, as well as toxic volatile organic chemicals like formaldehyde. Photocatalysis performs like the natural process in nature which makes the air especially fresh after a thunderstorm.
Wisepointe works at the same time in generating negative ions which quickly attach to and remove particulate pollution from your breathing space in a process called agglomeration.
