Have you ever felt invigorated, awake and alert while hiking on a high mountain trail or while walking along the shoreline of an ocean? If you have, then you’re already familiar with the beneficial effects and feelings associated with breathing air filled with high concentrations of ions. Ions are an essential component of clean air and healthy living.
Clean outdoor air typically contains anywhere from 2,000-3,000 ions per cubic centimeter. Inside a building with ducted central HVAC, however, that number often drops below 100 ions per cubic centimeter. Since people spend, on average, 90% of their time indoors, the need for better indoor air quality is pressing.
What Is a Cold Plasma Generator?
Cold Plasma Generator (or CPG) technology is an apparatus that is meant to be installed within your ductwork as part of your home’s heating and air conditioning system. The plasma generator creates ions out of molecules in your air that drastically improve the indoor air quality of your home.
How Does It Work?
As air flows through that plasma field, molecules in the air are charged, creating positive and negative ions. The ions get to work scrubbing the air around them. They then travel into your living space, safely killing various bacteria and viruses.
How do the ions scrub the air? Well, when molecules like H20 are broken down in the plasma field, the positively charged ions pull electrons (Hydrogen) from viruses, mold, and bacteria in the air, causing them to die.
Why Should I Install One?
The biggest advantage of installing a CPG as part of your heating and cooling system is that it cleans the air in your home safely- generating no ozone!
Ions can eliminate unpleasant odors from the air. They can also kill the following bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants:
- E. Coli
- Mold spores
- And more!
An added bonus to installing a CPG over other air purifiers is that there is no bulky apparatus that takes away from the aesthetic of your home. CPGs are installed in your air ducts so, while they are always working, they are typically out of sight and out of mind!
Finally, when compared with other air scrubbers, CPGs have the lowest cost of ownership since they require no replacement parts!
Information Regarding Novel Coronavirus
“CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in more than 100 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated COVID-19).
On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern” (PHEIC). On January 31, 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II declared a public health emergency (PHE) for the United States to aid the nation’s healthcare community in responding to COVID-19.”
Common indications of infection include respiratory symptoms, cough, fever, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. Recommendations by the World Health Organization (WHO) to prevent infection include hand washing, covering the mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms such as coughing and sneezing is also recommended.
COVID-19 is thought to mainly be spread by person-to-person contact (within 6 feet) or contact with respiratory droplets produced when a person coughs or sneezes. While it is not clear yet how COVID-19 is predominantly being spread, evidence suggests that many viruses can be transmitted through hard surfaces with the virus on it. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020)
Top Product Innovations’ Phenomenal AireTM products have been proven through independent lab testing to reduce pathogens similar to SARS-CoV-2 in residential and commercial applications. Viruses are reduced on hard non-porous surfaces and in the indoor air.
