Air Quality: Today you may have breathed in over 10 Trillion Particulates

Air Quality: Today you may have breathed in over 10 Trillion Particulates

Todd Simpson of IONaer, the leader in duct air purification systems that uses Natures powerful energy rich Ions to clean the air and remove 99% of all airborne particulates from the air you breathe joins eHealth Radio and the Allergy, Health News & Respiratory Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Todd Simpson discuss the following:

  • What are some indications that a home or business has indoor air quality problems?
  • What can IONaer do for these homes and businesses?
  • How are these Super-Oxide ions created and are they good for us?
  • Does IONaer's super oxide ions do anything for viruses or bacteria found on a surface like a school desk or countertop, or in heavy traffic areas?
  • I know that Allergies along with Asthma are a big problem to kids and to grown-ups. What can IONaer do to help reduce these symptoms?
  • Why are you passionate about air quality?


The IONaer 7000 system is an air purification unit that utilizes ionization to clean the air you breathe. The process of Ionization has been used for more than 40 years, and there are numerous clinical and University studies that show ionization is an excellent method to remove particulates and pathogens from your air. The IONaer 7000 is a natural and effective way to remove more than 98% of all airborne particulates out of the air you breathe. In addition, it has the ability to sanitize the air of pathogens, making your whole home and family safer.

IONaer is different than any other system on the market.

IONaer technology generates the same ions as Mother Nature creates with lightning, waterfalls, mountain air and the like. It’s Nature’s way of cleaning the air naturally and creating a healthy environment.

The IONaer engineering team worked on a method to remove Ozone from the ionization process. This patented Ozone filter captures one Oxygen (O) molecule from the O3 molecule to eliminate Ozone as a byproduct leaving your air healthy and clean.

IONaer patent pending Ozone Suppression Mode can reduce Ozone from electronics and other outside sources leaving the air you breathe clean, fresh, and Ozone free.

IONaer uses the highest amount of energy to create strong ion-clusters to remove contaminants and pathogens from every corner of your home, yet only consumes less electricity than a 20w light bulb.

Ion-clusters will attach to airborne particulates and remove more than 98% of all airborne particles including, pollen, smoke, dander, dust, mold spores, odors and even VOCs.

The IONaer patented system creates a 3:1 Negative Ion (Anion) to Positive Ion ratio. Negative ions have been proven to enhance your mood, increase energy, help you concentrate, enhance memory, and even can help you sleep better.

The IONaer Air Quality Management System is a fully connected indoor air monitoring and air quality control system that puts consumers in control of the air they breathe 24/7. The system monitors, detects and reacts to changes in air quality to give you the best air you can breathe.

IOnaer installs in your ductwork and turns every register and vent in your home or office into an effective air purification unit. This allows you to control air quality issues at the source, room by room.
Air Quality:

Air quality will vary greatly. Weather, seasons, humidity, activity, cooking, occupancy and building materials all contribute to your indoor air quality. The IONaer system utilizes state of the art sensors, and an air purification system to monitor, control, and clean the air you breathe 24/7. You set the air quality standard, let IONaer do the rest by removing upwards of 98% of all airborne particulates.

Why Clean Air:

Asthma, allergies, headaches, migraines, problems sleeping, lack of concentration, mood swings, heart issues, and even cancer have all been linked to the air you breathe. According to the EPA, your indoor air can be upwards of 10x dirtier than the air just outside your front door. In addition, the EPA estimates that the average American spends more than 90% of each day indoors. This tell us that “The amount of time you spend indoors breathing dirty air will affect your health and your overall well-being”.

Virus and Bacteria:

Ions do not want to remain ions; they want to be uncharged atoms or molecules. Charged IONaer atoms will react with other atoms to gain electrons or give up electrons and thereby reach a stable un-ionized state. If an electron deficient IONaer ion like an oxygen or nitrogen ion is in close proximity to a virus, bacteria, or mold spore, it will bond with and remove the hydrogen molecule from that organism and render it incapable of replicating. In effect, neutering it and neutralizing its ability to replicate. In addition, the corona energy created by IONaer will break down VOC’s, odors, smoke, or other airborne contaminants rendering your air Pure, Clean, Sanitized Air.

Clean-air is important to a healthy life. We hope you see the benefits of breathing clean air and the benefit of the IONaer system to remove pathogens that have a direct link to the quality of your life, your resident’s life, you’re your valuable employees.

Clean Air = Healthy Air = Healthy Body = Healthy Living.
