What is the iWave-R?
When it comes to Indoor Air Quality products designed to optimize home health and keep air clean and free of the really nasty stuff, there’s a new product “on the block” that is growing in popularity because of the surge of interest in air sanitization.

Benefits of Air Purifiers
Removal of odor and dust from the home
By removing unwanted particles from the air supply in your home, air purifiers can help eradicate stubborn odors that might be lingering. They also help make your home smell fresher at the same time by removing odors left after cooking and caused by smoking. Air purifiers help crack down on dust build up and dirt in the home and do much more. Without an effective air purifier, it might seem like no matter how often you clean your house, you will always find dust. Air purifiers slow the rate of dust accumulation drastically.
Control allergy symptoms and eliminate pet dander
If you deal with seasonal allergies, you understand how important it is to maintain an environment that’s clean and safe from the many types of pollens and mold floating around. Air purifiers allow you to provide a safe and clean environment at a lower cost. They also help with pet dander and these types of things. Whether you’re allergic to pet dander or you are simply tired of dealing with persistent pet odors, installing an air purifier will help.
Cleaner, healthier air
As suggested above, one of the biggest benefits of an air purifier is that it will improve the overall cleanliness of your indoor air by removing air pollution and harmful particles. The EPA reports that indoor air is often anywhere from 2 to 5 times as polluted and toxic as outdoor. Although some air purifiers lack germicidal capacities, the ones we offer are incredibly beneficial. The Aprilaire Purifier and iWave-R are great air purifiers. They help keep your family healthy and improve everyone’s overall quality of life.
Decreases the chances of airborne disease and improves sleep
Airborne diseases often spread through microscopic pathogens in the air supply. If one family member gets sick or has the flu, it’s very common for the rest of the family to end up becoming sick as well. When everyone is breathing the same air and you have a family member become infected, bacteria and viruses spread very easily and very quickly. Air purifiers neutralize and remove these nasty invaders. They are good to have for your self and good for everyone else living inside the home. An added bonus would be that air purifiers are also shown to improve sleep quality in the home for a variety of breathing related reasons.
What is an Air Purifier?
An air purifier or air cleaner is an indoor air quality product that removes contaminants from the air in a room to improve the home’s indoor air quality. These devices are very beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics. In addition to reducing or eliminating second-hand tobacco smoke, they remove other types of air pollution. Because indoor air pollution is being recognized as a major health issue, homeowners who use these affordable products notice major benefits in their overall health and sense of well-being. Indoor air pollution is actually worse than outdoor pollution, experts say, because homes are built very air tight and they circulate the same air. The standard air filter that comes with HVAC systems does little to nothing to improve air quality. They mainly protect the equipment.
Overall, there are three types of particulate air cleaners on the market that are most common. They are mechanical filters, electrostatic filters, and ion generators like the iWave-R.
Mechanical filters, HEPA filters and media air cleaners are among the most effective air purifiers that utilize filtration. Ionizers, on the other hand, are said to be able to attack finer particles than HEPA filters; down to 0.1 microns.
HEPA filters and media air cleaners actually trap the airborne contaminants and stops them from reentering the air you breathe..
