USING AN AIR PURIFIER AS AN ACCESSORY TO YOUR SOUNDPROOFING JOB.
Soundproofing a space usually means reducing airflow through the enclosed area. This can bring up other problems as ventilation is reduced. The very nature of sound control is to reduce spaces, gaps and crevices that cause “Sound Leaks”. Closing off those spaces can reduce needed airflow for proper ventilation and cause stuffiness and intensify odors. Certain areas have special problems such as moisture buildup as in basements and heat, as in attics. Putting a number of people into these places adds to the potential to spread germs and increase odor problems.
The answer is to carefully plan on how necessary ventilation is to be achieved.
One way to bring needed air into the room is with a simple air mover like a blower. A cold air outlet is built in the walls or ceiling to move the air out of the room, creating air movement across the open space. Carefully designing the inlet and outlet will reduce the likelihood of such opening will pass much sound. An air conditioner can be used if heating or cooling is needed.
A large advance over older air purification technology which must move the air through it’s filters, a ion generating air purifier goes out to eliminate odor, kill germs, virus’ and other nastys in your air. It can be portable, stand alone or built into your air ducting.
Imagine a technology of cleaning the air you breathe that’s totally different from filters or cover-ups. Purification systems are used by hospitals to disinfect bacteria laden air, by restaurants to eliminate cigarette smoke, and by hotels to remove odors from rooms.
These purifiers have a place in any closed space such as cars and trucks to eliminate smog and carbon monoxide odors, in RV’s where cooking odor can linger and long haul trucks and buses.
We recommend the “Eco-Quest” Air Purifier – ECO-QUEST “AirBuddy” – The AirBuddy” battery powered unit is a personal air purifier one can take on a plane or other closed public places, even the theatre.
as the best on the market, far outpacing other imitators in quality and performance.
Compact & Effective…
Most viruses and bacteria measure between 0.04 and 3 microns in size. The technology in the Fresh Air Buddy has been confirmed by world authorities in health-related aerosol studies to significantly reduce particles in the 0.04 to 3 micron range. Add to that the substantial inhalation risk reductions which have been confirmed under strict laboratory conditions in confined spaces (aircraft cabin simulations), and large test calibration chambers (rooms), and you begin to see how effective the Fresh Air Buddy can be. Most germs, smoke, dust, allergens, odors, molds, perfumes, and pollen are repelled away from you and your breathing zone, giving you cleaner, fresher air to breathe – wherever you may be.*
* Fresh Air Buddy is most effective in indoor environments when the wearer is standing or sitting upright. Outdoor conditions or other positions such as lying down will reduce or eliminate the benefits of wearing a Fresh Air Buddy.
