According to the EPA, indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times- and occasionally more than 100 times- higher than outdoor pollutant levels. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health. Airborne contaminants can be divided roughly into thirds: particulates, odors/VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and mold/germs. While some contaminants can carry a foul odor, others can pose a significant health risk.
Alternative air purifiers and inserts mask odors by producing ozone or perfumes. Odors, germs, mold and allergens can all be eliminated with the APCO System (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) by using a unique combination of UVC light and activated carbon. Installed directly into your home’s central air system, the air is instantly purified and circulated throughout your whole home, eliminating the need of individual air purifiers.
How is this achieved? Science. APCO detoxes the air with a process called photocatalytic oxidation (similar to the catalytic converter on your car’s exhaust). The built-in UV light reacts with titanium dioxide infused into the carbon which effectively disintegrates the captured containments, leaving only harmless water vapor and CO2 which are released back into your home’s air. This process leaves the carbon cells clean so they never fill up or need to be replaced. The result, a clean, mold & odor-free home. APCO’s lifetime warranty ensures your home’s air will remain healthy at all times!
