Indoor air quality is important because the air inside homes, offices, and other buildings can actually be more polluted than the air outdoors.

Poor indoor air quality can have a variety of negative effects on the health of the building’s occupants. It can cause or exacerbate a range of respiratory problems, including asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses. It can also cause headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and other general health problems.

Additionally, poor indoor air quality can lead to the growth of mold, which can cause further health problems and can damage the building. It is important to take steps to improve indoor air quality in order to protect the health of the building’s occupants and to maintain the integrity of the building itself.

The UV/Ozone Solution

The Qualitair Whole-Home Purification System addresses the issue of indoor air quality using two types of purification technology: UV sterilization and ozone exposure.

UV Sterilization

UV air sterilization uses ultraviolet (UV) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms in the air. UV light is effective at inactivating a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and mold spores.

When microorganisms pass through the UV light, the energy from the light damages their DNA or RNA, rendering them unable to reproduce and effectively killing them.

Ozone Exposure

Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent that can be used to further purify air. When ozone comes into contact with organic materials, it reacts with them, breaking them down into simpler, less harmful compounds. Ozone can be used to remove a variety of pollutants from the air, including mold, bacteria, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Qualitair ozone generators work by producing ozone gas, which is then distributed into the air. As the ozone circulates through the air, it reacts with any pollutants it comes into contact with, breaking them down into simpler, less harmful compounds.

The Qualitair Solution Does It All!

By combining UV and ozone purification systems together, the Qualitair Whole-Home Purification System delivers a 1-2 punch to airborne contaminants.
