The Importance of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in our lives
While at work (school) and home we spend up to 90% of our lives indoors. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can be 2-5 times more contaminated than outdoor air. These indoor air contaminants can trigger asthma attacks, create physical issues such as headaches, nausea, high blood pressure, and transmit upper respiratory illnesses like colds, flus and the Coronavirus.
What are these contaminants that can cause such issues?
The EPA has identified three areas of contaminants: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs from cleaning chemicals, paints, aromatic hydrocarbons, and industrial chemicals), Microparticles (pollen, dust, and allergens) and Biological (viruses & bacteria, mold & fungi). VOCs are not good in the water your employees drink or the air they breath. Microparticles can get into your bloodstream via the lungs and Biologicals are transmitted many times via the air… ie., coronavirus.
What can address all three areas of air contamination?
The Healthway DFS Air Filtration System addresses all three areas of contaminants. The Healthway DFS Air Systems remove most odors and VOCs, plus allergens and most importantly it traps, destroys, viruses and bacterias. The Healthway DFS system was tested to remove 99.99% of H1N1 virus and microparticles down to 0.007 microns.
Why is Healthway DFS so effective?
The Healthway DFS is so effective on all three areas of indoor air contaminants because it was developed as part of the military’s need to protect troops at front line facilities from both Chemical Weapons as well as Biological weapons. Its robust and effective technology is commercial/hospital grade technology in packages businesses (& families) can afford.
How to use my filter most effectively?
Ask our Air Specialists to assist you in assessing your space and make the recommendations that best fit your needs. Healthway has many models to choose from that range in size and air flow capabilities. The smallest size can cover a space up to 500 sq ft. The largest size can move air at up to 2,000 CFM (cubic feet per minute). There are seven systems that can be utilized in an office space ranging from the Tabletop that is good for offices and conference rooms. The Deluxe for larger spaces up to 2,000 sq ft. and then a range of systems that can be installed into the larger HVAC systems or as stand alone units above the ceiling with their one blower to move the air through the filter.
What other options are out there?
For smaller spaces there are lots of options available in big box stores and online, but none do what the Healthway DFS does for you. Do your research and even the EPA and CDC shed some light on what you can expect from some of the Air Filtration technologies out there. Be careful, effective names and websites can present more capability than is actually provided with that technology. $300 can get you an air filter, but is it more than a fan with a cloth pad? For the larger HVAC systems the number of available systems shrinks and none have the capabilities of the Healthway DFS systems.
- Designed for spaces 500 sq ft or less so think offices and smaller conference rooms!
- Revolutionary DFS technology will significantly reduce all three areas of indoor air contamination including viruses.
- 40 times more effective than HEPA filters. DFS is more than HEPA, its ultrafiltration & it also addresses odors and VOCs. Plus it both traps & destroys biological contaminants like viruses.
- Slim, compact design with style so it fits in most decors.
- Energy efficient with three fan speeds.
- Easy to maintain.
- Designed for spaces 2,000 Sq ft or less so think waiting rooms, larger conference rooms and open work areas.
- Revolutionary DFS technology will significantly reduce all 3 areas of indoor air contamination including Viruses.
