Clean air

‘Clean air’ has become a serious consideration as we look at ways to reduce the spread of viruses including Covid-19.

Abundant in nature, Hydroxyl radicals (also known as OH radicals) neutralise pollutants, viruses, and bacteria to clean and deodorise. Innovative technology can bring these incredible benefits indoors so that hard surfaces, soft furnishings, and the indoor environment can be a cleaner and pleasant place to be, whether at home, at work, or visiting hotels, shops, restaurants etc.

Hydroxyl radicals are unstable molecules looking to react with other elements like hydrogen, capturing it. Thanks to this reaction, Hydroxyl radicals inhibit the growth of pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, moulds, and odours, breaking them down and neutralising the unpleasant effects. This naturally occurring process has major benefits to improve indoor environments, both commercial and domestic.

Such technology can be found in diverse applications for cleaning air and surfaces, such as trains, elevators, cars, home appliances and personal beauty … as well as in air conditioning.

Panasonic Heating and Cooling Solutions is the new technology Panasonic have been working on for the last 18 months. It is incorporating nanoe™ Technology in a wide range of equipment for residential applications as well as for commercial spaces and, it is a solution that does not require filters or maintenance and can work independently from heating or cooling, the airflow from the indoor unit neutralises bacteria in the air. AC manufacturers have been developing this to alleviate the amount of bacteria fan coils produce due to the circulation of the same air in the room. Air Conditioning Services are a recommended installer of Panasonic in the Yorkshire area.
