Cold and flu season has arrived and all around us are the sounds of coughs and sniffles. Keeping your family healthy this time of year is tough. Our kids spend their day surrounded by a stew of nasty little germs at school. It’s inevitable!  Somebody’s going to catch something.  Then, as they start to feel a little better someone else in the family starts to cough and the yucky ick works its way through the entire family.  Sound familiar?  Well guess what; you may not be able to keep your child from bringing home a cold but you can stop it from spreading through your household. How, you ask?  The answer is The Air Knight air purifier and it is nothing short of amazing.

 The Air Knight is a revolutionary whole home air purification system that attacks all 3 classes of indoor contaminants like: viruses, bacteria and mold; dust, dirt, pollen and allergens; and finally, VOC’s, odors and chemical vapors.  The Air Knight mounts onto your existing heating and air system and whenever the system is running, the Air Knight is busy scrubbing and cleaning every inch of air inside your home as well as the indoor surfaces such as counter tops, sinks, tables etc.

How does this wonder work?  The Air Knight utilizes technology that combines, light, water and oxygen to produce hydroperoxide molecules. These molecules occur naturally in clean outdoor air.  Similar to hydrogen peroxide, these molecules sterilize air and indoor surfaces.  This technology is used in hospitals, hotels, cruise ships, restaurants and office buildings to eliminate “sick building syndrome.”

When someone in your home is sick with a virus, the Air Knight goes into action sterilizing the germ filled air and helps to eliminate sickness spreading throughout your entire family.  The Air Knight’s is so effective at killing germs that it actually destroys 98% of the particles of a sneeze, before they can travel 3 feet.  The technology also causes particulate matter to clump together which aids in filtration

The American College of Allergists estimates that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. This news is staggering and leaves you wondering why.  First of all, we live in a more toxic world.  Second, homes today are constructed air tight for energy efficiency. This completely eliminates fresh air from circulating through the spaces in which we spend most of our lives.   If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies, asthma or other respiratory issues, the Air Knight is a game changer.

A home with an Air Knight Purifier has noticeably lighter feeling air.  Like the outdoors, the air feels fresh and is odor free.  Of course, best of all are the health benefits you will realize from living in a home that has scrubbed and sterilized air.  Because the Air Knight is affordable and can be quickly and easily installed on any existing heating and air system it really is a no brainer.
