There's no better air cleaner investment on the market than the EnviroSept Electronic Air Cleaner!
The enhanced media filter uses the concept of dielectric polarization to effectively remove sub-micron particles from the air more efficiently than any conventional filter on the market to give you cleaner and healthier indoor air--especially important if you have allergies or asthma. See how it compares to other filters.
The EnviroSept Air Cleaner is available in two models: whole-house and portable. The whole-house model comes in thirty-five standard sizes and is designed to replace your existing furnace filter(s). The portable model is perfect for cleaning the air in specific rooms. Both are energy efficient, since it takes no more electricity to operate than your doorbell, and maintenance is simple and inexpensive with replacement collector pads you replace only as necessary.
How it Works
The EnviroSept is a highly efficient, non-ionizing, electronically enhanced media filter that uses dielectric polarization to effectively remove sub-micron particulate. This is achieved through the use of a steady-state electrostatic force field acting on a dielectric media--such as our specially- blended network of polywool fibers.
The EnviroSept Electronic Air Cleaner, with an input of 24 volts AC, generates a 7,000 volt positive DC charge from its proprietary solid state power head. This charge, applied to the central grid, polarizes the ½-inch-thick polywool blended collector pads on either side of the grid. These pads are held in place by the two outer screens, which are grounded. Therefore, the EnviroSept Electronic Air Cleaner is really two filters in one.
Most of us spend about 90% of our lives indoors--at home, in the work place, shopping, etc. Energy conservation concerns over the last twenty years have led to tighter, better-insulated, climate-controlled indoor environments. This has led to the perception that the indoor environment is healthier because polluted outside air is sealed out. Not true! According to the EPA, whether you live or work in a smog-choked urban environment or enjoy the open spaces of rural living, indoor air has been found to be up to seventy times more polluted than the air outside.
Many of these airborne particles come from man-made materials used in furniture and upholstery, draperies, bedding, carpets, clothing, paints, and cleaners. They also come from cooking, smoking, pets, candles and fireplaces. Even some houseplants can produce pollutants.
There are approximately twenty million particles in every cubic meter of air and all are a barrier to a truly healthy and clean environment. These small particles pass through most filters and remain airborne or settle onto surfaces. The problem of removing these particles from the environment is solved by the EnviroSept Air Cleaner.
The EnviroSept air cleaner's state-of-the-art technology removes more particles, more efficiently than any conventional passive filter, frictional electrostatic filter or precipitator product.
Compare the Inadequate Solutions of Other Filters:
These inexpensive disposable filters, purchased in hardware or a variety of other stores, have the ability to block only the large particles from passing through the filter. The limited success of these filters is based on the size of the mesh.
Frictional Electrostatic Filters
These relatively high-priced, reusable "tron" filters use material that is supposed to create a static charge when the air passes through the filter. Although these filters can remove smaller particles than the passive filters when clean, dust accumulation and humidity easily neutralize the relatively small electrical charge.
Expensive to purchase, install, operate and maintain, these systems give particles a positive charged field created by high voltage wire elements. These charged particles are supposed to be attracted to polarized metal plates. However, as particles build up on the plates, particle collection capability diminishes. Highly charged particles escape capture by the plates and return to the air space where they precipitate out onto the interior surfaces resulting in dirt buildup.
Air filter manufacturers have their products independently tested in order to validate claims of performance. Industry wide, the ASHRAE Test Standard is the method of choice for most types of air filters.
The ASHRAE test standards are not specifically designed for any one type of air cleaning device, but at the same time, do not entirely address the variety of air filtering devices and the multitude of applications in which they are used. Filters are designed to capture and hold larger airborne particulate. These tests are designed to measure the total amount of dust holding capacity for a given filter.
Test data helps you make the best possible product choice for your air filtration needs. Unlike the standard ASHRAE tests performed on standard disposable filters, efficiency tests were conducted on the EnviroSept air cleaner for the removal of sub-micron particulate. It is a given that if you can remove the sub-micron particulate, the larger particulate is not a challenge.
The following reports summarize by particle size the total number of particles counted in a cubic centimeter. The tests, which lasted from ten to twenty minutes, show the dramatic reduction in total particles as they are counted at the start of the test and every two minutes thereafter. After only twenty minutes, the equivalent of two air exchanges, the "EnviroSept" removed over 45% of particles in the (0.09 to 0.5 range) and over 77% of the particles in the (.5 to 1.0) micron range. The heating/cooling systems in most homes normally provide for at least five air exchanges per hour.
This testing clearly demonstrates the high efficiency of the EnviroSept Electronic Air Cleaner and what it may do for you in your home.
