Frequently Asked Questions For
The Nature's Air Purification System


Q. What does the Nature's Air do?
A. it treats the air in your home or office by breaking down odor causing pollutants and dropping airborne particulate from your breathing space.
Q. How does the Nature's Air treat the air?
A. The Nature's Air produces ozone and negatively charged ions, the same effective cleansing agents that nature uses to treat outdoor air.
Q. How does the Nature's Air work?
A. It is a two-stage process:


  1. The Nature's Air uses a needlepoint ionizer to drop dust, smoke and other harmful particles from the air we breathe. In our homes and offices there is a lack of negative ions and an abundance of positive ions. The buildings we spend most of our time in, block out the natural occurring negative ions. The Nature's Air recreates the natural balance of positive to negative ions to significantly reduce airborne particulate.

  2. The Nature's Air uses electricity to split oxygen molecules into single atoms, which attach loosely attached oxygen to become ozone (activated oxygen). This loosely attached oxygen atom is unstable and seeks to bond with chemical compounds and other odor causing pollutants in order to oxidize them.

Q. How does nature produce ozone?
A. ozone is created electrically during active thunderstorms. The electrical discharge creates a fresh sweet smell. The ultraviolet rays of the sun striking hydrocarbons in our atmosphere also create ozone.
Q. How does nature produce ions?
A. Waterfalls, lightning, and the waves of the ocean all create negative ions.
Q. What is an ozone alert?
A. Ozone alerts in cities are a result of the high pollution levels of hydrocarbons produced by the burning of fossil fuels. When ultraviolet rays from the sun strike hydrocarbons, ozone is one of the by-products. Ozone is easily detected and is sometimes used as a reference point for the level of pollutants.
Q. How does it compare to air filters?
A. Nature's Air does not rely on the air to actually pass through the machine to be cleaned like air filters. It's not a filter at all. Nature's Air produces both activated oxygen, which reduces odors and negative ions, which settle out particulate.
Q. What does the Nature's Air do?
A. it treats the air in your home or office by breaking down odor causing pollutants and dropping airborne particulate from your breathing space.
Q. Is ozone safe?
A. Yes, but moderation is the key. Ozone in very high concentrations can be irritating to mucous membranes and the respiratory system. We recommend you set the ozone dial properly. Before using the Nature's Air you should read the enclosed instructions carefully. Refer to Using a Time section in the owner's manual.
Q. Where should I place the Nature's Air in my home or office?
A. The Nature's Air should be placed in the room where you have the most pollutants. The Nature's Air is easy to move so you might want to try it in a couple of locations to help decide what works best for your environment. An elevated location is better to distribute ions and activated oxygen more evenly. Nature's Air works best if it is placed within 10 feet of a cold air return.
Q. Is it difficult to install?
A. No. Just install the ozone plates (located in separate box packaged inside the carton), plug it in and set the dial for the area you will be treating. Install the Nature's Air in any room, but try to find a place where it can be up off the ground four feet or more. Some customers prefer to have more than one unit to better control levels of activated oxygen in the home.
