In our post-pandemic world, many of us find ourselves still searching for answers to indoor air quality concerns.
Why? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that the average American spend 87% of their life inside a building. A fact that is leading homeowners and building management searching for solutions to some of today’s most dangerous indoor threats including viruses, bacteria, and fine particles unseen to the naked eye.
The most effective solution known to combat these problems is a technology called DFS, or a Disinfecting Filtration System.
The electrically enhanced/stimulated air filtration technology is standard in both HealthWay and Intellipure® air purifiers and they come with significant advantages. The industry-leading technology was developed through a US military grant – and has been helpful for addressing many indoor quality concerns.
DFS Technical Specs
- First, the DFS high energy field creates an energized state in the main filter that clusters ultrafine particles to make them larger, allowing the main filter to effectively capture them more easily.
- Next, the controlled, isolated high energy field generated by the DFS continually creates high energy exposure through the pleats and fibers of the main filter. These two mechanisms work together to provide ultraclean filtration of particles.
1. DFS air purifiers help combat the spread of airborne viruses like COVID-19
The question many homeowners have been asking – is there an air purifier that can handle COVID-19?
Yes, DFS technology has been rigorously lab-tested and has proven to remove COVID-19 like viruses (SARS-CoV-2) almost completely from the air. According to numerous tests conducted by a private lab,HealthWay Family of Brands® released that 99% of airborne particles were eliminated in just 10 minutes when using a DFS air purifier. The ongoing testing also concluded that after 45 minutes, 100% of airborne air particles were eliminated.
And after 24 hours? There were no signs of the harmful air particles (SARS-CoV-2).
2. DFS air purifiers help alleviate seasonal allergies
Another popular benefit to DFS is it can help you with your seasonal allergies. Our indoor air spaces can be up to 100 times more polluted than our outdoor spaces. Indoor air pollutants can range anywhere from pet dander to harmful mold, and bacteria. By eliminating these harmful particles through DFS, you are creating an environment where you and your loved ones can breathe easily without constantly being triggered by indoor air pollutants.
3. DFS air purifiers don’t promote bacteria growth
Think about this – you buy an air purifier and indoor air quality concerns are gone, right? Wrong. HEPA air purifiers expel fresh air, yes, but they don’t do anything to keep the filter itself clean from contracting mold and other bacteria. DFS uses a proprietary technology that actually prevents bacteria growth from building up on your air purifier.
By preventing growth, DFS also prevents live organisms from escaping back into the air. In effect, by using this technology you are improving your air without exposing yourself and others to harmful bacteria growth. This makes for amazing indoor air quality!
4. DFS air purifiers help prevent long-term illnesses
Indoor air pollution has been linked to harmful health conditions like lung cancer, asthma, cardiovascular diseases and Alzheimer’s. It’s no joke, poor indoor air quality also puts people with weakened immune systems at risk for developing long-term health problems.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), recommends eliminating the source of pollution when possible. By using technology like DFS, you’re taking harmful particles out the air and helping to reduce your risk of developing these long-term illnesses.
DFS air purifiers are a big deal and can address many indoor air quality concerns. Just think – what would life be like without allergens, mold, or even COVID-19 floating around in your air? While you might not be concerned about all of those things, by having a DFS air purifier you’ll have “peace of mind” knowing that your space is protected for your friends, family, and/or co-workers.
