Learn more about bipolar ionization, an innovative, scientific approach to indoor air quality that purifies your air in a safe and efficient manner.
The experienced and knowledgeable crew at Service Unlimited understands indoor air quality is vital now more than ever. Discover the key benefits of bipolar ionization technology and how it improves the air you breathe within your facility.
The Importance of Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality (IAQ), has a major impact on your health and wellbeing. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollutants can be five times higher than outdoor levels. Common environmental pollutants can be organic or man-made. Mold, mildew, secondhand tobacco smoke, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) wreak havoc on indoor air quality. Pet dander, dust mites, and allergens fill the air as well, which not only causes an unpleasant odor, but also leads to sickness.
If indoor air quality isn’t prioritized, it agitates existing health issues such as asthma and heart and lung conditions. Tainted air also causes fatigue, headaches, coughing, watery eyes, and a runny nose. In worse cases, poor indoor air quality is associated with carbon monoxide poisoning, respiratory illnesses, and cancer. That’s why the use of IAQ systems is imperative—they purify the air and eliminate contaminants within the building.
How Does Bipolar Ionization Work?
Bipolar ionization or BPI is a scientific and technologically advanced mechanism that functions within a heating and cooling system. BPI uses electric voltage to convert oxygen molecules into charged atoms that attach to airborne contaminants and deactivate them. Negatively and positively charged atoms called ions defeat viruses, bacteria, and mold, while eliminating odors and neutralizing VOCs.
Proven Effective Against Illnesses
If you’re questioning if bipolar ionization is safe, the answer is in how it’s trusted by industry professionals as it contributes to a healthier environment. BPI was first introduced to the United States in the 1970s. Initially, BPI technology was used to control pathogens in food manufacturing. Soon after, BPI was tested in clinical settings and proven effective against life-changing and sometimes fatal illnesses, including SARS, norovirus, and multiple flu strains.
Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Is Used in Large Venues and Other Public Places
Needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) is an advanced technology that’s been tested on COVID-19. Results showed a 99.4% inactivation of sickness-causing particles within 30 minutes under conditions similar to occupied environments. NPBI provides fast and consistent germ and bacteria inactivation in climate-controlled areas. Since it’s proven to be effective, it’s used within schools, offices, medical buildings, and airports across America.
Are you ready to upgrade your HVAC system and benefit from lower utility bills and energy preservation?
Incorporate Bipolar Ionization in Your HVAC System
Retrofitting is the addition of new technology or features on an older HVAC system. Some property owners opt for retrofitting because it’s cost effective and convenient. Retrofitting is a great way to optimize your heating and cooling system without getting a replacement. Other benefits of retrofitting commercial HVAC systems include:
- An extended lifespan of the existing HVAC system
- A lower utility bill, since the system is functioning properly, not overexerting itself
- Improved indoor air quality by controlling humidity and eliminating harmful particles
- Fresher cleaner air, leading to healthier staff and higher productivity
Bipolar ionization HVAC is progressively changing the way we prioritize clean, fresh air. With professional installation and ongoing maintenance, BPI shows a drastic difference in our health and aids in our fight against COVID-19. However, BPI technology should not replace other safety precautions such as washing hands, social distancing, and abiding by general health laws and guidelines. Instead, bipolar ionization is an air-purifying solution that contributes to our efforts to stay safe and protect ourselves and others.
