Your home’s indoor air quality (or IAQ) refers to the quality of the air found inside your home. Your home’s air quality is reduced by outside pollutants entering your home and being spread around your residence via human contact, pets, and the air moving throughout the home. Things that negatively impact your home’s IAQ include plant pollen, smog, molds, viruses, and various bacterias. With COVID-19 being an ongoing issue, air quality is more important than ever when it comes to keeping yourself safe. A bipolar ionization system is an addition to your home’s HVAC system that increases its ability to filter the air you breathe.
Bipolar ionization refers to a system that takes oxygen from the surrounding environment and converts the oxygen atoms so that they cluster around several common airborne irritants such as molds and allergens such as pollen, viruses, and bacteria. A bipolar ionization system is easy to add to your existing HVAC unit and is comparable to any other type of air-purification system that works in the background improving your home’s IAQ while your HVAC system continues to regulate your home’s temperature.
When you have a bipolar ionization system installed, you should always use a professional skilled in HVAC maintenance, upkeep, and repair. Once you add an ionization system to your HVAC, you’ll immediately make your home’s air safer to breathe. Bipolar ionization keeps the pollutants it attaches to from propagating themselves. For example, molds lose the ability to grow and viruses are rendered inactive, as bipolar ionization has been shown in testing to kill 99% of exposed viruses.
