How The AtmosAir System Works
The beauty of the AtmosAir system is just how easily it can be integrated into HVAC systems in homes and buildings or used as standalone portable units.
Airflow passes thru our patented ionization tube. The tube energizes the air to form bi-polar (or positive and negative) air ions. The airflow then distributes the ions into all of the spaces served by the duct system in an in-duct installation, or into the applicable space if a standalone unit is used. It’s that simple and elegant!
There’s no continual maintenance, no filters to keep changing or collector cells to constantly clean. The only maintenance required in most cases is a once yearly replacement of the ionization tube.
The bi-polar ions created can also affect a greater number and variety of contaminants than most air purification systems because the ions go out into the breathing space and seek out and neutralize the contaminants at their source. This is vastly superior to most air purification methods, which rely on trying to bring all the contaminants thru the device to be affected and usually suffer from insufficient airflow. The air cleans itself where you breathe, just as occurs in nature.
Sick Building Syndrome
What Is Sick Building Syndrome?
Sick building syndrome (SBS) occurs when occupants of a building experience acute health effects that seem to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. The complaints may be localized in a particular room or zone, or may be widespread throughout the building. Frequently, problems result when a building is operated or maintained in a manner that is inconsistent with its original design or prescribed operating procedures. Sometimes indoor air problems are a result of poor building design or occupant activities.
What Are the Symptoms of SBS?
Building occupants complain of symptoms associated with acute discomfort. These symptoms include headaches; eye, nose, and throat irritation; a dry cough; dry or itchy skin; dizziness and nausea; difficulty in concentrating; fatigue; and sensitivity to odors. With SBS, no clinically defined disease or specific chemical or biological contaminant can be determined as the cause of the symptoms. Most of the complainants feel relief soon after leaving the building. SBS reduces worker productivity and may also increase absenteeism.
AtmosAir Bi-Polar Ionization (BPI) Process vs. Other Methods
There are many other technologies on the market that attempt to deal with IAQ problems. They all have their their strengths and the weaknesses, but most importantly, NONE of them are capable of dealing with most/all the typical IAQ problems like AtmosAir’s BPI process.
What Our Clients Say
“We’ve both been very pleased with the Atmos air systems. The dust in the house seems to have almost been erased and with it the allergens that plague [my wife]. While she still suffers from allergies & asthma, the house has become a sort of “safe zone” where she can re-energize. Thanks for your help, we wish we had known about this years ago.” – Satisfied James River Air Client
