Ion generators, also called ionizers, applied in indoor air quality products, have been marketed to homeowners for decades. In this week’s IAQ Trust Tip, I review what’s good and what’s not so good about Ionizers, and help clear up some important questions.
Some things don’t change. One of them is how airborne particles are captured by media air filters. Understanding this will help explain how the oldest and most common air filtration technology can be effective in some ways, and why they are not in others.
ASHRAE’s publications openly state that current testing procedures for today’s diverse IAQ products have shortcomings. Only media air filters, among all of these IAQ products, have shown consistent evidence of improving the health of the occupants of the space.

Today, there are more IAQ products than ever and new ones continue to pop up, particularly in the retail market. Who is buying these products? Your customers! Over the coming weeks, I’ll provide the best help I can with tips on how to communicate what you learn to your customers, and how to give them appropriate choices that can make the air in their homes cleaner, healthier and safer.

While catching up on current commercials it has been quickly apparent that the big-ticket advertising has become increasingly targeted toward the younger guys who don’t shave and women who buy Land Rovers. Surely this demographic group is spending money and I hope they keep it up. They are a rapidly growing economic force and there is no doubt these hard working, independence loving, smart people will run the Baby Boomers’ world at some point… but not quite yet.
