FAQ

Why do you not offer Air Oasis Induct air purifiers?

Air Oasis are under agreement to distribute HVAC products through licensed Heating and Air vendors and services alone. This agreement prohibits dealers who are not licensed to market Air Oasis induct air purifiers. However we can negotiate a price for any Air Oasis product over the phone or email. We encourage you to browse Airoasis.com and then phone us @ 806-477-0322 or email us @ info.breathebetterair@gmail.com and let us make you a deal on any Air Oasis air purifier. Sorry there are no price breaks for replacement cells or air quality test kits.

For a multiple floor home is it better to get a unit for each floor and if so why is it better?
Multiple small units always cover entire home more adequately than a single large unit no matter how many floors the home has. The alternative is to install an induct unit in your central heat and air to cover the entire home.

Should I place a unit in my basement or will my unit upstairs cover my basement too?
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.

Why is your technology better than other air purifiers on the market?
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.

Why do the mobile units use a filter when your other units do not require them. How often do you need to replace or wash the filter?
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.

Is the mercury in the UV lamp emitted into the air?
No, the lamps contain very little mercury and remains inside the lamp. UV lamps should be disposed of properly. Find disposal centers in your area at www.earth911.org.

How much mercury is in the UV lamp?
Less than 5 mg per lamp.

What are the differences in the colored spots on the air test and what do they mean?
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.

Will my unit work properly with my windows open?
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 happens because the ions are being pulled outside and mold and other contaminants are being pulled inside your home.

Why is there only a one year warranty on the mobile instead of a 3 year warranty like your other units?
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.

Why do the mobile units have 3 fan speeds and 3 ion settings and the other units do not?
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.

Each Air Oasis Model is manufactured to cover a specified square footage.
a. The Air Oasis 3000 covers up to 3000 square feet and is optimal for 1800 to 2000 square feet. It is also recommended for smaller areas with higher contamination.
b. The Air Oasis 1000 is designed for areas 500 sq ft up to 1000 sq ft.
c.The Air Oasis Mobile is optimal for areas 175 sq ft and 250 sq ft.
d. The Air Oasis 3000Xtreme is a double output commercial air purifier
designed for high contamination in areas 3000 sq ft and less.
e. Air Oasis Nano 9″HCT Induct is designated for 3000 sq ft and less.
f. The Air Oasis Nano 6″HCT Induct is designed for smaller homes and offices 1000 sq ft and under.
g. Air Oasis Nano 14″HCT Induct is a commercial unit manufactured for larger areas up to 5000 sq ft.
h. The Air Oasis 5000 is a very strong commercial air purifier designed for larger areas with very high contamination.

I have a Ionic Breeze and it gives off a odor. Does yours?
Yes. The odor you smell is ozone. It is commonly compared to an “after a thunderstorm fresh smell” or a slight bleach or antiseptic smell. You can smell ozone at around .01 ppm. Air Oasis test well below the Federal limit of .05ppm. for home air cleaners.

How is it possible to clean the air without a filter?
With the Air Oasis a filter is not needed. The Advanced Oxidizers created by the air purifier will travel through your home and destroy airborne contaminants on site. Any large particles like hair will require a separate filtering device.

Isn’t ozone in any amount dangerous? What about UV?
A
. Air Oasis create a very low level of ozone as a by product UV. Well below the Federal Safety levels of .05 ppm of Ozone. Ozone is a very effective cleaning agent at safe levels, but at high levels it is dangerous to the lungs and can be lethal. Like electricity or other potent energies, Ozone must be harnessed and respected to get the best results. This is precisely the function of the Air Oasis AHPCO cell.
B. UV must also be respected and kept at lower levels. The UV that Air Oasis uses is not considered dangerous.

Does the Air Oasis remove cigarette smoke?
Yes, The Advanced Oxidizing Ions created by the Air Oasis will break up smoke. We recommend a Air Oasis 3000Xtreme for smokers and homes with a long history of tobacco smoke contamination. An Air Oasis 5000 or Nano Induct 14″ is recommended to combat smoke in bar/lounge type areas.

Does the Air Oasis get rid of dust?
Air Oasis is not a dust filtering unit. The reason manufacturers of Ionic air purifiers can claim that their units get rid of dust is because the Ions they omit are heavier than dust. When the ions attach to the dust in the air because of polarity, the dust becomes to heavy to float and falls to the floor or surfaces. Air Oasis can make a similar claim.
