Negative ionization equipment for purifying air can be part of a home system as a built-in or portable unit. Either one will do the basic task of releasing negative ions into the air which attach themselves to positive ions. These positive ions are in the form of fungi, dust, mold, exhaust, bacteria, and other pollutants and allergens. When negative ions attach themselves to positive ions, they form a cluster, which is heavier than air. These clusters fall to a surface where a quick wipe can remove them. The result is cleaner, fresher air. Negative ionization equipment comes in many portable models. They can also be part of a permanent home heating and air conditioning system. Your decision to go one route or the other depends on your air purification requirements. Whatever you choose, the sanitizing effect of these units is worth their price alone.
With the air outside and inside full of harmful microbes we often forget what fresh air can do to us in terms of physical energy. With a permanent stationary ionizer, you have a central station equipped with a negative ionization unit that can service all areas of your home or business. Air filtered from this central point moves along the entire network resulting in an even distribution of negatively charged air. When many rooms are in use at a home or workplace this is an efficient way to ensure all have clean air. In addition, with a built-in unit, you only have to worry about one device running and not multiple units in different locations. However, if you want to provide good quality fresh air only to a room currently in use, you cannot do this with a built-in unit with one central controlling function.
You have to run full power to provide for one room. With a portable ionizer, you have the luxury of moving a unit from room to room in a house or office complex. As well, you can buy multiple units and let each individual in an office control their own environment. Portable HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air-Filter) air purifiers equipped with negative ions generating systems are great for keeping employees alert in their offices come the afternoon blahs. They're especially suitable for areas where there are no windows to let in fresh air. Another benefit of a portable unit is the ability to move it around in a room and direct the airflow to the exact area you are working at. With a built-in unit, you can only direct the air to the room as a whole. Some portable units on the market today are Ionic Breeze air purifier, Surround Air purifier, and Bentax air purifier: The Ionic air purifier comes in different sizes according to the coverage required. There's the Ionic Breeze Tabletop Silent Air Purifier with two air cleaning speeds which uses 8 watts of power.
This model is excellent for smaller rooms. There are also Ionic Breeze portable systems for larger rooms with the Ionic Breeze Quadra Silent Air Purifier. This model has three speeds and operates with 10 watts. Surround Air manufactures a model (Multi-Tech) that has a HEPA allergens filtration filter and a germ-killing UV lamp. It includes a negative-ion generator and odor sanitizer. This model also has an anti-bacterial pre-filter. The Bentax model, the MiniTower, is a suitable unit for those who need coverage in a larger room it consumes up to 3.5 watts of energy. Its design is for larger offices, conferences, and open plan living rooms. It is suitable in a larger boat cabin as well. Whether one chooses a built-in negative ionization unit or a portable one, the benefits are numerous. Negative ions output units do not spout harmful ozone emissions. They purify air in their own small way, room by room, for healthful benefits. Their sanitizing effect makes air fresher, which in turn makes those present in a room refreshed. At home, or at work, a refreshed person is a more alert and productive person - and therefore more efficient.
Increased productivity at home and on the job enhances a person's confidence because of a job well done. In addition, fresh, pure, negative ionized air gives a person more energy, which contributes to an overall feeling of well-being. This promotes a positive attitude, which is a great shield against depression. Negative ionization equipment for the home or office is a simple solution to many common health and attitude problems when used correctly.
