UV information in other newsletter

 

Central air purifier uses high-energy Ultraviolet-C light to effectively control odors; sterilize the air from viruses, bacteria, and germs; remove mold spores, mildew, stachybotrys and black mold, most common house dust particles, weed pollen, and other allergens and contaminants in large and small heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

 

Ultraviolet light air disinfection

The Best Product
We Sell.

We spend 90% of our time inside buildings, and experts say 90% of air pollution is inside buildings. Many heating and air conditioning systems have the ideal conditions for the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and other hazardous air pollutants and allergens.
Allergies, headaches, watery eyes, runny noses and sore throats have become commonplace.
The original  Air Probe Sanitizer purifies and cleanses the air, kills odors, and helps prevent the transmission of disease and sickness using special UVC light.

All UV-C light is not the same.

About the Flu:
Did You Know?...

  Scientists think that a contributing factor to the prevalence of the flu in wintertime is reduced ultraviolet-C (UV-C) light in winter. (The deadly H5N1 bird flu virus matches the seasonal peak for common human influenza viruses.)

  "UV-C" takes in a broad spectrum, including wavelengths that DO NOT kill viruses and germs, and wavelengths that produce ozone. Only the 254 (253.7) nm (nanometer) UV-C wavelength is able to kill viruses, germs, bacteria, and other harmful pathogens.

 Other ultraviolet wavelengths are useless and dangerous. UV-B can penetrate the lens of the  eye and cause permanent blindness, by damaging the retina.

  The ultraviolet lamps used in the Air Probe Sanitizer produce nearly pure 254 nm UV-C.

Model E-200 Dual-probe UV-C Air Probe Sanitizer mounted above central air conditioner's  A-coil
UV-C Dual-probe Ultraviolet unit
USES PURE UV-C LIGHT
Superior to ordinary "in-duct" UV-C systems.

  • Easily installs near cooling coil in central air conditioning and heating system.
     
  • Does NOT require expensive or smelly catalysts to be effective!
     
"An Air Probe Sanitizer was placed close to a coil that was so plugged with mold that the airflow was only 15% of normal. In just 30 days, the airflow was up to 85%."


WHAT IT DOES and HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Fights germs. Anti-microbial Germicidal effect disinfects the air . Kills germs, bacteria, viruses, mildew, mold spores such as stachybotrys and black mold, etc. as they circulate through the ducts and past the UV lamps. Help stop the spread of diseases and sicknesses. Short wave (UV-C) kills or de-activates bacteria, viruses and other primitive organisms, even if the organisms have become immune to other disinfection methods.
     

  2. Stops Mold and Bacteria growth inside your central air conditioning system. No more mildew and moldy odor from your air conditioner.
     

  3. Eliminates Odors. Makes the air in your rooms smell fresh and clean while producing ZERO ozone.
     

  4. Destroys VOC's (volatile organic compounds) such as formaldehyde.
     

  5. Eliminates the need to EVER clean the mold off your cooling coil (evaporator coil) again. (details below) Helps decrease cooling costs by keeping the cooling coil from plugging up with mold and gel.
     

  6. ELIMINATES the need for periodic duct cleaning, by keeping your ductwork clean and dust-free inside.
     

  7. Generates safe and highly effective Negative hydroxyl ions, the natural compound that scrubs pollution from the earth's atmosphere. Hydroxyl ions are the main air pollution destroyer in earth's atmosphere. Hydroxyls and hydroxyl radicals are formed when the UV-C from the sun strips  hydrogen atoms from water molecules (H20) forming hydroxyl (OH)-.
     

  8. These helpful negative hydroxyl ions are circulated out of your cooling and heating vents and into your living space by your central air conditioner's fan or blower.
     

 

 

No more air conditioner coil cleaning. The high-energy UV-C ultraviolet rays from the probes shine on the cold air side of the air conditioner evaporator coil (like the A-coil shown above). This eliminates the normal mold, algae, slime, and gel formations that:

  • Act as breeding areas for bacteria

  • Can be blown out into the room, where they can be inhaled and cause sinus infections, sickness, and allergies.

  • Can plug the coil, inhibit air flow, and increase cooling costs.

CE Declaration of Conformity  No. 210604-10 - Air Probe Sanitizer

UL (Underwriter's Laboratories) Classified
  Air Probe Sanitizer is UL Classified - Air duct mounted accessory - Control # 61DF
for use in HVAC * systems.

 

 

UV Lamps are...

- Made from a special high- purity synthetic coated quartz that resists deterioration by UV-C rays, which occurs in many similar lamps.

- Three years illumination average life: only 15% deterioration in UV-C output after 1 year, and only 12% per year after that.

- Easily replaceable at very reasonable costs.

 - Same process as sunlight, only 2500 times more potent.

 - NO OZONE produced, and does so much more than even the most sophisticated filtration systems.

We have one installed here, and although it does not produce as many negative oxygen ions as our IG-133- series room ionizers, we are very pleased with it! Its negative hydroxyl ions output makes it do everything the inventor claims.

 

In over 12 years, only ONE person has ever returned the Air Probe Sanitizer for a refund because they didn't feel it was doing the job.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I use the Air Probe Sanitizer with my existing heating and air conditioning system?
There is no HVAC system which cannot use the Original Air Probe Sanitizer. Nearly all systems can use the E-200 or FME-200 above, but it can be manufactured to fit any size air conditioner (usually at no extra charge). The original Air Probe Sanitizer is made of extruded aluminum and all stainless steel connectors.

 

How does the Air Probe Sanitizer work?
Nearly all HVAC (central heating and air conditioning system) systems have the ideal conditions for the growth of mold, mildew, and other hazardous air pollutants. There are volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the air and also the very common problem of fine organic dust, germs, mold spores, pollen, animal dander, and other allergens.

The air in your home, office, school or hospital circulates anywhere from 250 to 400 times per day through the HVAC system. The air passes through the germicidal ultraviolet air purification produced by the Air Probe Sanitizer. The Air Probe Sanitizer produces 2500 times more germicidal effect than the amount in the sunlight that reaches the earth's surface, using a carefully selected, optimum portion of the UV-C ultraviolet spectrum (yes, all "UV-C" light is not the same). After 24 hours, the air you breath will be so clean, you can actually feel and see the difference.

It also generates helpful negative ions and hydroxyls, which naturally occur in the atmosphere, to scrub pollution, odors, and pathogens from the air in your building.

The Air Probe is installed safely and out of sight inside your air conditioning and heating system to kill the source of the problem using the high-energy UV-C form of ultraviolet energy.

 

Is it safe?
The original Air Probe Sanitizer uses the UV-C form of ultraviolet air purification. UV-C is known as short wave UV. It has very low penetration abilities, so it cannot go through walls or ductwork. It produces no harmful ozone, gases, radioactivity, etc. But at the same time it has been found to be most effective in destroying the DNA of bacteria, mold, mildew and other allergens. Properly installed, you cannot be exposed to any ultraviolet light rays (which can be harmful to your eyes or skin) from the Air Probe Sanitizer.

Some inferior competitive products carry the warning "Can cause temporary or permanent loss of vision". This would be because their UV lamps also emit dangerous UV-B (short wave) ultraviolet radiation (the Air Probe Sanitizer does not). This also represents wasted and useless UV energy. See the lamp comparison chart for more information. But even if someone should look at the Air Probe Sanitizer lamps (not recommended), the UV-C radiation cannot penetrate the cornea of the eye and damage the delicate retina. 
Regardless, you should not look at UV lamps without wearing some kind of glasses (you might experience delayed eye surface pain). Properly installed in your central air handler, this will not happen.

 

Does the Air Probe Sanitizer produce ozone?
Absolutely NO! If fact, the UV-C wavelength that the Air Probe Sanitizer's lamps produce would destroy ozone, were it somehow present in the air. The Air Probe Sanitizer is classified as non-ozone producing. It purifies and sanitizes the air with UVC light and hydroxyls, with none of the disadvantages of ozone.

The UVC wavelength of the germicidal UVC lamps that are used in the Air Probe Sanitizer (253.7 nanometers) does not produce ozone. The UV wavelength of other brands of UVC germicidal lamps that do produce ozone is shorter, 180 to 220 nanometers.

 

What is the difference between the Air Probe Sanitizer and duct cleaning?
The Air Probe Sanitizer purifies and sanitizes all the air in the building constantly, 365 days per year. Duct cleaning and/or sanitizing lasts only one day and does not purify the air. Remember that dirty air makes dirty ducts; dirty ducts do not make dirty air.

 

Will it eliminate odors?
Yes. It will eliminate odor from pets, cooking, mold, mildew, chemicals, paint, carpeting, etc...!

 

Is there any maintenance?
The probes (UV-C lamps) should be wiped clean once per year. The UV Probes should be replaced once every two years (three years at most), since the lamps' UV-C output drops about 12% per year, and the UV-C output after three years is about 67% of a new probe.

 

Is it expensive?
No. For all that it does (sanitizes and purifies the air, reduces dust, destroys odors, sanitizes the ducts and airhandler, helps the a/c run more efficiently - EVERYDAY!) it is very cost effective!

KEEPS DUCTS CLEAN. Compared with duct cleaning, which really only lasts one day, it would be like cleaning your ducts everyday, plus all of its other benefits. (Remember, dirty air is what makes the ducts dirty to begin with). If it costs $200 to clean your ducts once, it would cost $73,000 to have them cleaned everyday for a year.

 

Is it easy to install?
Yes. It couldn't be easier. The video shows how simple it is. There are several models to fit any unit. The internally-mounted E-200 and the externally-mounted FME-200 comes with mounting screws and cover switch (not shown). Any good air conditioning man (or mechanical contractor, qualified electrician, etc.) should find this the easiest thing he's ever had to do, and one of the quickest. too. Free tech support is available from us, if needed. Units come with wires for internal installation as shown in above photos. The wires can be replaced with 16/3 cord or covered with flexible metal conduit. NOTE: Direct UV-C light from the lamps is harmful to eyes and skin. Equipment using these lamps must screen them completely from direct view.

 

Can it help prevent deadly diseases such as H1N1 Swine Flu, H5N1 Bird Flu or SARS?
YES, it certainly can. Please see the pandemics page for more information.

 

If I absolutely cannot install the Air Probe Sanitizer, then what product(s) do you recommend instead?
Perhaps you're renting and your landlord won't see reason. If that's the case, please see our product chooser.

A FanHandler equipped system keeps the air gently flowing past the UV-C lamps on the Air Probe Sanitizer. Because the blower runs continuously at a very low speed (and it automatically speeds up when the system calls for it), the UV lamps are always doing their job zapping slow-moving contaminants.

Extremely useful in northern climates in the spring and fall months when the air conditioner/furnace fan is normally off. Click here for more information on the FanHandler.
