iWave Is the First Air Purifier Shown to Inactivate SARS-Cov-2

Want to safeguard your home or office during the Covid-19 pandemic? Fitch Services has a solution.

We are now offering the installation of an HVAC air filter that will clean, freshen, and greatly reduce SARS-Cov-2, responsible for Covid-19, and other viruses from the air in your home or office. The iWave air purifier, the first air purifier to be tested against Covid-19, inactivates 99.4% of the virus. Independent lab tests have proven that the iWave significantly reduces Covid-19 and many additional pathogens in indoor environments, not only in the air but also on hard, non-porous surfaces. According to these lab tests run on the iWave-C model, based on viral titrations, it was determined that:

  • At 10 minutes, 84.2% of the virus was inactivated.
  • At 15 minutes, 92.6% of the virus was inactivated.
  • At 30 minutes, 99.4% of the virus was inactivated.

Viruses and other pollutants are dangerous outdoors but are even more harmful indoors because there’s less airflow. A simple thing like dust in the home and office can act as a magnet to bacteria, viruses, and dust mites. Chemical pollutants, bacteria, and mold also present elevated risks indoors. Even office equipment, like computers, printers, and photocopiers, can cause pollution. Air purifiers help to eliminate these unhealthy pathogens, irritants, and unwanted odors.

Air purifier benefits include:

  • Eliminating asthma attack triggers
  • Eliminating allergens, such as dust and pet odors
  • Trapping tobacco and cigarette smoke
  • Eliminating radon gas
  • Lowering carbon dioxide levels
  • Lessening the contamination in hospitals and health clinics

In addition to purifying the air, the iWave air purifier mitigates the genuine risks from the current Covid-19 health crisis. And it’s popular, already boasting over 200,000 installations in commercial and residential environments.

iWave purifiers:

  • Inactivate SARS-Cov-2, responsible for COVID-19
  • Reduce allergens
  • Kill mold, bacteria, and viruses
  • Reduce odor, smoke, static electricity, and dust in the air

iWave air purifiers clean the air of contaminants through your home or office’s HVAC system and are a simple installation for our HVAC technicians.

How iWave air purifiers work

An HVAC technician will install an iWAVE air purifying device into your duct heating and air conditioning system. When the air inside passes over the iWave unit, the unit produces ions that reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, and odors in the air. Air filtration creates a healthy, purified indoor environment without the production of harmful byproducts. iWave’s patented technology, needle-point bi-polar ionization (NPBI), breaks down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor.

When the ions encounter viruses, bacteria, and mold, they remove the hydrogen molecules — without them, the pathogens have no energy source and will die. When the ions attach to allergens like pollen and various other particles, they cause them to band together until they’re large enough to be caught by your ventilation system’s air filter.

Nature uses shear and energy to break apart molecules, clean the air, and produce a healthy environment. iWave’s technology emulates the natural process, generating the same ions that nature creates with waterfalls, ocean waves, lightning, etc.

The difference between nature and iWave’s technology is that iWave cleans your air without producing harmful ozone. Ozone is a toxic gas that nature, and some other air purifiers on the market, emit while “cleaning” the air in your home. It is dangerous when an air purifier emits ozone inside the confined space of your home or office. According to the EPA, when inhaled, even in relatively low amounts, ozone can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath, and throat irritation. Ozone may worsen chronic respiratory diseases like asthma and compromise the body’s ability to fight respiratory infections.

iWave purifiers do NOT develop ozone.

Advantages of iWave

IWave’s proprietary technology provides a highly effective and budget-friendly air purification method. Other air purifiers typically require ongoing maintenance with bulb/cell replacement every year or two, which is an expensive hassle. iWave purifiers, on the other hand, don’t require continual maintenance and have no replacement parts. As mentioned earlier, they also don’t produce harmful byproducts, like ozone.

iWave warranty

Nu-Calgon, the manufacturer of iWave, offers a three-year limited warranty on iWave products. To validate a warranty claim, proof of purchase and proof of installation by a licensed HVAC or electrical contractor must be provided. Fitch Services will be able to help you there.

iWave models

There are four iWave purifier models – the iWave-R, the iWave-V, the iWave-M, and the i-Wave C. The iWave-R is a no-maintenance air purifier for residential systems. The iWave-V is a low maintenance air purifier for residential systems. The iWave-M is a mini flexible air purifier for ductless and other HVAC systems. The iWave-C is a no-maintenance air purifier for commercial and residential systems.

Though models differ slightly and offer their own advantages, all iWave purifiers feature:

  • Proven NPBI technology
  • Active air purification of the whole house or business space
  • Massive reduction of Covid-19 and other viruses, mold, and bacteria
  • Reduction of allergens, odors, smoke, and particles
  • No replacement parts — the total cost of ownership is less than other options
  • Installation into any air conditioning or heating system
  • UL and cUL approved
  • Three-year warranty

You need more than the average air purifier to clean the air of coronaviruses. The iWave air purifier is the solution that has been proven to inactivate Covid while you and your family work and enjoy your life. This virus is nothing to mess around with. Get the added protection you and your family need from the iWave air purifier.

Slowing down and taking a deep breath could do many of us good in this stressful time. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the air you’re currently breathing could actually be hurting instead of helping you.

Since the beginning of 2020, Covid-19 has been wafting in and out of the environments we frequent. It’s caused us to become even more aware of the need for pure, clean air – air free of viruses, bacteria, dust odors, and mold.

You probably know by now that Covid is spread through droplets, expelled by those in close contact with us, and aerosols (small droplets that “hang” in the air around us, even after the person who emitted them is gone). Aerosols are particularly concerning in indoor environments, which tend to have much less ventilation than the outdoors.

Many of us are already spending a lot of time indoors during this coronavirus pandemic. And with winter fast approaching in Charlottesville, we’ll be spending even more time inside escaping the cold. Your home is your comfort space, your resting place, your office, your own personal restaurant; the last worry you should have while inside your four walls is if you’re breathing in dangerous particles that could make you and your family sick. And if you work in an office or any indoor place of business, you want to breathe clean, fresh air.

Your Charlottesville HVAC experts are ready to make your air cleaner.
