There’s no simple answer here. Essentially, when it comes to ions, volume matters. Neutralizing a virus, for example, is a one-to-one situation. (When one ion comes in contact with one virus particle, that virus is deactivated.) The more ions you introduce into the occupied space, the higher your likelihood of completely cleaning that air of viruses, pathogens, allergens, odors, mold, and other contributors to poor indoor air quality. Depending on the unit you install, our products produce billions of ions every second. Our competitors produce millions. A certified installer can walk you through the placement within your system to maximize ion production.
