Memphis Indoor Air Quality
Ultraviolet Germicidal Light (Registered as a Class II medical device with the FDA.)
Why do I need a Second Wind air purifier if I already have a filter?
A filter will address the particulate in the air but does not have an effect on bacteria, odors, and off-gases. The World Health Organization and CDC break indoor air contamination into 3 categories. Particulate which is the dust and dirt introduced into the air is what a filter will remove. Bioaerosols which are living micro-organisms like bacteria and viruses, which can be addressed with ultraviolet germicidal light disinfection. Also, Volatile Organic Compounds like odors, fumes, off-gases, can be neutralized using photo-catalytic oxidation. Second Wind Air Purifiers can enhance an existing filter by addressing things the filter will miss and with our model can address particulate, Bioaerosols and Volatile Organic compounds.

5” Media Filter
The ‘Once a Year’ filter, for a cleaner home!
The APRILAIRE Air Cleaner is an investment in healthful comfort for your family and protection for your home and furnishings. This air cleaner is many times more efficient than an ordinary furnace or air conditioning filters with which you may be familiar. One of the best features of the APRILAIRE is that the filter media only needs to be changed once a year. That’s right! Only once a year. The average filter needs to be checked monthly. That makes this unit ideal for hard to reach areas like attics, crawl-spaces, tight closets, and dirty, dark basements. And the filter actually becomes more efficient as it gets dirtier. Because this model has no moving parts, it’s virtually maintenance free and comes with a lifetime limited warranty!
Seal your existing duct system to EPA standards with foil-backed, duct mastic.
Foil-backed mastic is a nontoxic, water-based, adhesive-sealant for permanently sealing the fabricated joints and seams of sheet metal air ducts, UL-181 listed rigid fiberglass air ducts, UL-181 listed flexible air ducts and thermal insulation. It is also ideal for repairing damaged and leaking air ducts and sealing conditioned spaces from air infiltration. Mildew resistant. Water-based, for easy application and cleanup. Fiber reinforced, high solids content, excellent longevity (actually strengthens with age).
Zone Control (2, 3 and 4 Zone Systems.)
Zoned HVAC Saves You Money and Makes You More Comfortable! In most homes, heating and cooling accounts for the largest part of the energy bill. Despite this, most homes waste a tremendous amount of heat and cool air through inefficient use. Efficiency can be significantly improved by only heating or cooling when necessary (ie. when occupants are present) and by only heating/cooling to the exact desired temperature. Home automation and zoned HVAC (heating, ventilation, air-conditioning) can do this for you automatically. You can set different desired temperatures in each room, and by using motion detectors you can automatically turn ON/OFF the heating/cooling to each zone as people enter and leave. The energy savings in the average home over just a few years will often pay for the entire home automation system!
