Whole House Air Purifiers

In addition to heating and cooling solutions, Mode Comfort & Air Quality is pleased to offer an array of solutions to purify the air you breathe every day. The air in your home contains dust mites, germs, bacteria, and mold, and all of those microorganisms get sucked into the ducts that deliver your hot and cold air. Then they get circulated throughout your house and into your lungs.

Mode Recommends: iWave Whole House Air Purifiers

iWave is a whole house air purification system that Mode Comfort & Air Quality can install in any duct air conditioning system. When air passes over the iWave, the patented needle-point bi-polar ionization creates equal amounts of positive and negative ions. When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gases including:

  • Allergens

  • Cooking Odors

  • Pet Odors

  • Pathogens

  • Viruses

  • Particles

  • Dust Mites

  • Smoke

  • Bacteria

  • Mold

These pollutants are broken down into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor. iWave whole house air purifiers create a healthy environment with no harmful byproducts. Read iWave’s statement on the Coronovirus here.

Benefits of an iWave Whole House Air Purifier Installation

In addition to the above, iWave whole house air purification systems offer:

  • No harmful byproducts
  • No ongoing maintenance needs
  • No replacement parts
  • Self-cleaning design
  • A three-year limited warranty from the manufacturer
  • A typical lifespan of 10 years

How Much Does It Cost for a Whole Home Air Purifier Installation?

Most likely, iWaves cost less than you think! iWave whole house air purifier systems are $818 each. That is the installed price. If you are a Fan Club member, the cost dips to $695! That doesn’t seem like a whole lot of money when it comes to the cleanliness of the air that your family breathes.

Another Option for Whole House Air Purification: UV Light Technology

While not a traditional whole house air filtration or purification system, UV lights are a great option for creating a more sanitary environment. A UV generating lamp mounted in your home’s HVAC system is an effective way to control indoor bacteria and odors by significantly reducing indoor air contamination and preventing the growth of new microorganisms.

What is UV and How Does it Work?

Ultraviolet rays are nature’s outdoor purifier. UV light inhibits the growth and reproduction of germs, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mold. Because UV light is outdoors, these nasty contaminates are left to breed inside your home.

This is why The Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor air can contain up to 70 times more pollution than outdoor air.

UV waves are invisible to us, yet lethal to microorganisms found in indoor air. The UV light penetrates the contaminants and breaks down the molecular bonds. The germs are either killed or sterilized.

What Microorganisms Can a UV Light Installed in My Home Eradicate?

A UV light will have a 99% kill rate for bacteria that cause diseases such as:

  • Anthrax

  • Diphtheria

  • E. coli

  • Legionnaires Disease

  • Salmonella

  • Typhoid

  • Cholera

In addition to the above, iWave whole house air purification systems offer:

  • No harmful byproducts
  • No ongoing maintenance needs
  • No replacement parts
  • Self-cleaning design
  • A three-year limited warranty from the manufacturer
  • A typical lifespan of 10 years

Benefits of an iWave Whole House Air Purifier Installation

Over the past few decades, indoor air quality has declined dramatically, inundating us with bacteria, viruses, toxins, and molds, in the place we should feel safest-our homes. Filtering systems on their own are not a viable solution, as they simply recirculate the same infected air after removing the particulates. UV radiation replicates the effectiveness of the sun’s rays in your home in a safe, cost-effective manner.

UV light treatment can be maximized with the addition of a whole house humidifier, whole house air purifier (see the iWave information above), and indoor air quality thermostat.

Whole House Air Filtration Systems

Both iWave whole house air purifiers and UV lights work best when paired with a whole house air filtration system. This is essentially a high-density air filter with a lot of surface area. The thicker material that makes up the filter catches pollutants that may otherwise enter your home’s air flow. The iWave actually gathers the offending microorganisms into clumps, making it easy for the whole house filtration system to catch them.
