Air Purification

Air Purification

Do you know what’s in your indoor air? Many of us may assume the air we breathe indoors is clean, if not cleaner than outdoor air. The opposite can often be true. Around 96% of buildings surveyed recently by the EPA had indoor air quality (IAQ) issues, determined by the concentration of pollutants in the air. Of those surveyed, 86% had high levels of dust, pollen, viruses, and other pollutants. A staggering 71% even had potentially harmful chemicals and gases. The most common pollutants found in indoor air include:

  • Carbon dioxide (CO2)
  • Airborne fungi
  • Dust and dust mites
  • Mold and mildew
  • Bacteria and viruses
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Other pathogens that cause disease

When found in high concentrations, these pollutants can pose health risks, including lethargy, headaches, sore throat, dry and itchy skin, sinus infections, and even severe reactions like respiratory distress. Any building with excessive concentrations of these pollutants is said to have “Sick Building Syndrome” (SBS) and could benefit greatly from an air purification system. How do you know if your building could be at risk? Here are some of the most common factors that contribute to airborne pollutants:

  • Moisture or dirt in your HVAC system, filters, and/or humidification devices
  • Recent water damage or microbiological pollutants (such as mold and bacteria)
  • Cleaning product chemicals
  • Poor ventilation
  • Outdoor pollutants or vehicle exhaust.
  • VOCs (volatile organic compounds) used in paints, lacquers, glues, and adhesives
  • Ozone and fugitive chemical emissions from electronic equipment
  • Formaldehyde
  • Combustible by-products like nitrogen or carbon monoxide from fossil fuels
  • Animal and other biological allergens
  • Asbestos found in buildings built before 2000

Do any of these apply to your application? Air-Row can help.

To maintain clean air now and into the future, your business should follow a three-fold approach to improve overall IAQ: Ventilate, purify, and filter. Air-Row Fans specializes in offering all three of these capabilities with our advanced air purification systems – designed to work in conjunction with your existing HVAC system. We offer our open-ceiling (F-18) and grid ceiling (LA-248 Lay-in) destratification fans for efficient air ventilation and distribution, equipped with our UV-PCO (Ultra-Violet Photocatalytic Oxidation) Bulbs and HEPA filters for advanced air filtration, and our BPI Bipolar Ionization system Cartridge to neutralize particulates, gases, and vapors, and throw pollutants to the floor.

Combined, these three system modules work to clean your air throughout the day, with minimal energy use. Our destratification fans use a filter with at least a MERV-13 rating, making them 99% effective at trapping particles as small as 0.3 microns. Studies show our Bi-Polar Ionization cartridges can help clean and neutralize areas up to 1,200 square feet per application. Additionally, our destratification fans work to evenly distribute air throughout the space, helping your HVAC systems run around 30% more efficiently, year-round. All three of these capabilities can be equipped onto a single Air-Row fan unit.

Air-Row technicians offer custom installation services for applications both small and large, along with maintenance services. Ensure maximum efficiency and air purification with our comprehensive air purification systems. Give us a call at 317-548-6507, or visit our website to get a comprehensive quote today!
