EcoSunTec IMAP-1000 “Three in One Product” utilizes UV air purification which gives off ultraviolet light in short wavelengths designed to kill germs. As the air is drawn through the rear of the heater, it passes over the high intensity UV light, a known mutagen which destroys nucleic acids at a molecular level. Exposure to UV air purifiers kills 99% of germs in the air flow. UV light has the means to mutate bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi and VOC (volatile organic compounds) micro-organisms which consist of a single cell. The UV light destroys these types of organisms and adds another level of cleanliness which has a positive effect on one’s health. The air purification feature operates independent of the heat function thereby providing additional value on a year round basis.
EcoSunTec IAP-1000 “Two in One Product” utilizes photocatalytic oxidation air purification which is achieved when you combine UV light rays with a Ti02 (titanium oxide) coated filter. This approach creates hydroxyl radicals and super-oxide ions which are highly reactive electrons. These highly reactive electrons aggressively combine with other elements in the air such as bacteria and VOCs. Once bound together the chemical reaction takes place between the super charged ion and the pollutant, effectively oxidizing or burning the pollutant. This breaks the pollutant down into harmless carbon dioxide and water molecules, making the air more purified and reducing odor in the process. This advanced air purification method benefits those with asthma, allergies and chemical sensitivity. The air purification feature operates independent of the heat function thereby providing additional value on a year round basis.
EcoSunTec IMAP-1000 “Three in One Product” incorporates a humidifier as an optional feature of the unit. Infrared heat does not remove moisture from the air which aids the distribution of heat. The humidifier gives you the capability of adding moisture to the air. The increased moisture makes the heat feel warmer than its actual temperature. Thus the old saying, “it makes 68F feel like 72F”. Yes, the heater operates safely and efficiently without engaging the humidifier.
