The iWave Air Purifier Uses State-Of-the-Art Ionization Technology
Let's start with the best reason to get an iWave-R - it brings the latest and newest air cleaning technology to the HVACR market. It's a patented technology called needlepoint bi-polar ionization.
The iWave-R uses carbon fiber brushes to produce a refined electrical charge. As its bi-polar, it uses two emitters to discharge an equal amount of positive and negative ions.
When these ions encounter any contaminants in the air, like VOCs, bacteria, viruses, particles, smoke, odor, or anything else, they either neutralize or reduce them by reacting to them.
Contact with these ions can have a microbicidal effect on bacteria and viruses. It disrupts their surface proteins and renders them ineffective. Also, the ions will bind with dust and other particles in the air, so they clump together until they are big enough to be caught by the filtration system.
The iWave-R produces more than 160 million ions/cc per polarity (more than any other ionizer air purifier on the market). This amplifies its cleaning and neutralizing power.
You might have heard of this negative ion energy before. Nature uses the same 'technology' of ions to clean the air naturally. That's why living next to the ocean or some other water feature is considered healthy. It's because the ocean's saltwater produces many negative ions.

Below is a video detailing all the essential aspects of the iWave air purifier. It may also be helpful to answer any questions you might have regarding the unit. Crystal Heating and Cooling are always available should you have any questions or concerns regarding your iWave air purifier.
How Is Bi-polar Ionization Better Than Traditional Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) Technology?
Even though traditional PCO technology also uses ionization to clean polluted air indoors, it uses UV light along with Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and other alloys to create ionization. The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has warned people about the dangers of exposure to Titanium Dioxide.
The compound has been known to cause minor eye irritation as well as skin irritation. In some animal studies, the inhalation of titanium dioxide dust has even been linked to lung cancer.
Not only that, but the UV lamps used in PCO technology also produce ozone, another chemical harmful to human health. The Food and Drug Administration states that ozone inhalation can be irritating to the airway. Additionally, they warn of increased health risks if this unit is installed incorrectly.
Finally, the UV cells used in these air purifiers have to be replaced every 1 or 2 years. That's an additional expense you can do without. Whereas with the iWave-R, you are working with an air purifier self-cleaning (we will go into detail below), and bipolar ionization requires NO replacement parts. This means that these parts are maintenance-free for the life of your device. How convenient is that!
Some Other Benefits of the iWave-R
Even though it might seem that the iWave-R is too good to be true just with the benefits outlined above, there's more to come. Let's detail some other benefits of installing an iWave-R air purifier in your home (or office).
1. It's Self-Cleaning
So how does the iWave cleaner work? The iWave-R features self-cleaning technology, which means that you can set up your iWave-R to self-clean the emitter brushes every 1, 3, 5, or 10 days.
The unit will automatically clean itself every 5-10 days, depending on the air quality. But you can program these cleaning cycles, so you never have to worry about cleaning your air purifier again.
Another plus- there is no additional maintenance required! It is truly a set-it-and-forget-it air purifier.
2. It's Affordable and Practical
The initial unit with installation can cost between $700-$1000 for your home. It is important to remember, however, that the life of the iWave air purifier is between 10 - 15 years, almost the same as your HVAC system.
And since it is designed to be installed in the HVAC system or air conditioning ducts, it does not have a fan. Because of this and the bipolar ionization, it doesn't need replacement parts and is maintenance-free for life.
You also don't need a separate air purifier for each room in your home (more on this below). This means your iWave-R air purifier is more cost-effective and practical for you in the long run.
If you want to enjoy years of air purifier usage without maintenance, replacement costs, or cleaning hassles, then the iWave-R is for you.
3. It's a Full-Home (or Office) Purification System
Usually, when you purchase an air purifier, you typically buy several for your home, as you need one for each room you spend time in. That's one for the living area, one for the kitchen, one for the master bedroom, one for the children's bedrooms, and more.
If you can't afford to purchase an air purifier for each room, you will probably buy one that's portable so that you can move around from one room to another. That's not genuinely convenient.
But the iWave-R plugs into your HVAC system, which means that it can cleanse, purify, and reduce pollutants in your entire home in one fell swoop. Each room will get the same air purification results from just one iWave air purifier system.
4. It Has No Harmful or Negative Byproducts
Other air purifying devices can create titanium dioxide or ozone, harming your health. But the bipolar ionization technology of the iWave air purifier produces ions that neutralize and break down pollutants and gasses into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor.
That means that your iWave-R isn't going to add any additional pollutants to your home while cleaning up the air.
It's good for the environment as it doesn't create harmful residues from the clean-up endeavor. Also, it's green and environmentally friendly because it doesn't require replacement parts every year or two, meaning that it reduces the load on the manufacturing process and thus on Earth's resources.
5. It Can Eliminate Bacteria and Viruses
As mentioned earlier, the ions produced by the iWave-R patented technology clean up harmful bacteria and viruses by making their surface proteins ineffective and rendering them harmless. Since bacteria and viruses are fast becoming a significant disrupter of human life and health, you need an iWave-R air purifier in your home.
Healthy indoor air quality is also crucial if you have younger children who go to school and bring back various flu, colds, and other viruses with them. You don't want to get sick every time that happens, and the iWave-R can at least help clean up the air of these dangerous bacteria and viruses.
With the recent outbreak of Covid-19, it is now more important than ever to ensure the safety of your employees. An iWave air purifier can be beneficial to help combat Covid-19 in a busy office. Keeping employees safe and healthy can be made simpler by installing our air purifying system.
6. It Also Cleans up Smoke, Particles, And Odor
Did you know that your kitchen can be a significant source of indoor air pollution in various ways? Of course, every single time you use natural gas, wood, or coal to heat up and cook your food, this creates smoke and other gaseous pollutants like carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and more.
But cooking can also create unhealthy air pollutants when cooking fat, oil, or other food ingredients at high temperatures. Also, self-cleaning ovens create a substantial toxic load on your indoor air when they burn away food waste.
Of course, you would want a well-ventilated kitchen so all the air pollutants produced can be siphoned off to the outside as soon as possible. But, it's impossible to eliminate all indoor air pollutants in this manner, resulting in indoor air pollution that could cause asthma in children and other lung infections.
An iWave air purifier can help you eliminate or reduce these indoor air pollutants using bipolar ionization technology.
7. It Works for Both Residential Homes and Office Buildings
If you are looking for an air purifier system that can work both for your residential and commercial space, iWave technology has you covered. There's no need to search for two separate solutions for your home and office.
The iWave air purifier can be installed directly in the HVAC units of either your home or office, giving you the improved air quality you need in both places.
The iWave Air Purifiers Are All about Quality
Now that you know more about the iWave-R technology and its benefits, you are undoubtedly thinking that the iWave-R sounds like a quality product, and that's correct.
But if you are still worried, Nu-Calgon also offers a three-year limited warranty on iWave products. This way, you can rest assured that you are purchasing a quality product, and if anything does go wrong, you will be covered in some ways.
Remember that the installation has to be performed by a licensed HVAC or electrical contractor for the warranty to be valid. You need proof of purchase and evidence of such an installation for your warranty claim to go through smoothly.
