Multiple small units always cover entire home more adequately than a single large unit no matter how many floors the home has. The alternative would is to install an induct unit in your central heat and air to cover the entire home.
Your basement needs it’s own unit unless you are using an induct unit and your basement is heated and cooled by the HVAC system.
Our units utilize our proprietary NASA developed PCO nano technology. They do not require high, costly maintenance (like changing filters), low energy consumption, aluminum housing, sanitizes surfaces as well as the air, made in the USA, and documented independent studies are provided.
The filters capture larger particles, such as dust, that is more prevalent in cars and other vehicles. You need to check the filter annually and clean it as particles begin to accumulate.
No, the lamps contain very little mercury and remains inside the lamp. UV lamps should be disposed of properly. Find disposals centers in your area at www.earth911.org.
Less than 5 mg per lamp.
The gel contains a chemical that will stain bacteria red. Fuzzy spots indicate a type of mold. The test kits are for educational purposes only and not intended to diagnose a mold or bacteria problem or differentiate between different types of mold or bacteria.
The unit will work with a window open. In fact if you open a window on the opposite side of the house from the unit it will help pull the ions through the house. If all windows are open however the unit will work less effectively. This is due to the fact that the ions are being pulled outside and mold and other contaminants are being pulled inside your home.
The Mobile unit is designed to be “on the go” in cars, boats, RVs, hotel rooms etc. making it more susceptible to abuse. Therefore, in order to keep the unit at an affordable price we only apply a one year warranty to them.
They were designed this way because they are used in smaller areas like a car and you may not require the full force of the unit in smaller vehicles. You should always run the Mobile on high when there are higher contaminant levels, like smoking.
