The characteristics of ozone that make it potentially harmful also make it possible to be filtered out of the air with another method: activated carbon. Ozone is reactive because the third oxygen atom attaches to other molecules very easily, with a tendency to “break off”
Here at Molekule, we talk about air quality a lot. We research, think about and write about air quality a lot too. Sometimes you have to get back to basics and explore the fundamental problem of poor air quality. In order to understand what good
To determine the "worst" air quality in a state we reviewed the ALA’s State of the Air report to see how many times a given city (and its counties, where applicable) in a state showed up in the top 25 rankings lists for year-round particle
Though some air purifiers may create ozone, either intentionally or as a by-product, Molekule devices have been tested and certified by third-party labs showing that Molekule does not generate ozone.
Evidence of the harmful effects of indoor air pollution is piling up, and an increasing number of people are searching for a way to protect and improve the air quality inside of their homes. Buying an air purifier can be an effective indoor air quality
It is not advisable to rely heavily on using an ozone generator. Study after study has shown that they are not particularly effective in reducing indoor air concentrations for most VOCs. There are other air purification technologies, including the Molekule PECO air purifier, that can
Although ionizers may indirectly mask or chemically alter odors because of the ozone, the ozone they produce as a byproduct makes them a less-than-ideal choice for sensitive groups. Ultimately, these devices were not designed to handle odors, and if you'd like to get rid of
Unlike other UV air purifiers, Molekule's PECO technology used UV-A light to safely destroy pollutants without producing harmful ozone as a byproduct.
Ionizers come in many different forms, but they all rely on using electrical charges to remove particles from the air. Unfortunately ionizers have drawbacks and issues when in comes to safety and efficacy—there are better technology choices out there.
Air purifiers that produce ozone can be harmful. Which types are ozone free? Avoid the dangers of ozone by choosing the right air purifier technology.
