New Video Tells the Whole Story

LOS ANGELES — “You’ve probably heard someone say, ‘I’m going outside to get some fresh air’ – as if the inside air isn’t fresh. Right? Well often, it’s not”

So begins a new video that tells the story of how untreated indoor air, when emptied of such impurities as allergens, bacteria and other pollutants, dramatically reduces the workplace sickness and absenteeism that are so costly to employers.

“As healthy buildings become more important and validation programs are given increased weight, businesses are focusing on the significant benefits of providing the cleanest possible air for their employees,” said Steve Levine, Chief Executive Officer of AtmosAir.

“Bi-polar ionization, which the AtmosAir system uses to proactively purify the air inside a building, enables people to breathe air such as you’ll find on a mountaintop,” Levine added.

The video – designed and produced by the global architecture, design and planning firm, Gensler – explains how AtmosAir makes building systems more sustainable by recycling the cleanest indoor air possible and reducing outside air intake. That dramatically lowers energy costs and removes up to 95 percent of ultra-fine particles and up to 90 percent of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The AtmosAir system can reduce HVAC systems’ size by as much as 15 percent, with associated savings of up to 30 percent on HVAC electrical costs, the video states.

It adds that the system has an average three-year installation cost payback and contributes to meeting the LEED standard of the U.S. Green Building Council.

 

The AtmosAir system is making the air cleaner and healthier for many organizations around the globe:

  • Gensler
  • Tower 45 Office Building, Manhattan
  • Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Manhattan
  • Carnegie Hall, Manhattan
  • Staples Center, Los Angeles
  • National Resource Defense Council, Beijing
  • University of Southern California
  • Rush Street Gaming Casinos
  • Numerous military installations in the U.S.
  • Dallas Cowboys Headquarters and Training Facilities, Dallas
  • UBS, Stamford CT and Nashville
  • Hilton Hotels and Resorts
  • Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Tampa
  • Chicago Cubs Training Facilities
  • TD Garden, Boston
  • LAX Airport, Los Angles
  • John Wooden Center, UCLA

AtmosAir Solutions opens a new office in Shanghai, China

FAIRFIELD, CT. – July 7, 2015 – AtmosAir Solutions, which markets and installs Green, clean bi-polar ionization indoor air quality devices for business, has opened a new office in Shanghai and Joe Stern has been named to oversee the new operation, according to President and CEO Steve Levine.

AtmosAir Solutions has created a new division, AtmosAir Asia, with the goal of marketing and selling its indoor air quality (IAQ) products to businesses and homes in China.

“Our entry into China is a very important milestone in AtmosAir’s global growth strategy, “said Steve Levine. “ China is a critical market where we expect to acquire a significant market share very quickly as a result of our superior technology, outstanding design, and advanced air cleaning products. Our entry reflects both our strength as one of the leading global players in the air purifying category and our confidence in the ability to meet the opportunities that the highly-evolved Chinese market offers. We are positioned well for success due to our strength of reducing pollutants and offering clean air.

” AtmosAir Asia has already installed its indoor air quality systems in the China offices of Glumac, a global engineering firm, and the National Resource Defense Council, one of the world’s leading non-profit organizations specializing in environmental advocacy.

Pollution in China remains a major problem, causing severe, and life threatening health related problems and Beijing has for many years suffered from serious air pollution. Primary sources of pollutants include exhaust emission from Beijing’s more than five million motor vehicles, coal burning in neighboring regions, dust storms from the north and local construction dust.

The average business office or commercial space can be a breeding ground for mold, dust, odors, bacteria and airborne viruses due to poor air filtration and ventilation systems and lead to less productivity and absenteeism due to illness. AtmosAir Solutions products, installed in building heating and air conditioning systems, clean-up the air in an office building to create a more healthy work environment, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity.

Additionally, offices that installs IAQ devices also save energy and reduce costs, in many cases 25 percent less on HVAC energy bills.

USC’s McKay Center turns on new Indoor Air Quality System to keep athletes and staff healthy in training and locker rooms

LOS ANGELES (March 28, 2013) –  The University of Southern California and AtmosAir Solutions today announced that the John McKay Center’s new Green, clean indoor air quality system is operational and helping to protect athletes and staff from illness and infections.

The McKay Center’s new indoor air quality (IAQ) system from AtmosAir Solutions of Fairfield, CT. is designed to significantly reduce mold, dust, odors, control bacteria and the spread of airborne viruses, and reduce airborne particles and germs that get past normal ventilation and filtration systems. The goal: to keep USC athletes healthy and on the playing field while also protecting coaches and trainers from illness and infection. The indoor air quality system is also designed to reduce building operation costs.

“We’re very excited about our indoor air quality system going operational in the McKay Center,” said AtmosAir Solutions President Steve Levine. “We know from others who have installed our product – the Staples Center, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Mariners, and University of Richmond – that their athletes and staff stay healthier and feel better when they train in their facilities.”

Staph infections at athletic training facilities are often traced to contact with bacteria. Treating surfaces is generally temporary. A more permanent fix is installing IAQ systems that rid the root of these infections over extended time and help insure athletes remain healthy germ free and on the playing field instead of the injured list.

“We’re very pleased to again attend the Advanced Energy conference and looking forward to Tony’s speech,” said Levine. “The show is a wonderful showcase for the production of clean energy and renewable sources and a perfect place to demonstrate how our product line can provide fresh, healthy indoor air to a residence or commercial building.”

USC head athletic trainer Russ Romano is enthused with the new indoor air purification system in the new facility is an avid advocate for helping keep athletes and staff healthier with purified clean indoor air.

Poor Indoor Air in a Home Can cause Winter Illness

Poor Indoor Air in a Home Can cause Winter Illness
The air in your home can make you sick this winter.

FAIRFIELD, CT.  October 9, 2012 –  Poor indoor air quality, when windows are sealed shut and heat is circulating throughout a home, can create an environment and cause sickness from the dreaded flu to the common cold.

Tony Abate, Vice President Operations at AtmosAir Solutions and a Certified Indoor Environmentalist as designated by the Indoor Air Quality Association and the American Air Quality Council, offers the following tips to help stay healthy in your home this Winter:

• Air Purification. Sealing up doors and windows and upgrading insulation are great for the heating bill but bad for your health as we re-circulate stale air and contaminants over and over. There are many great new technologies like bi-polar ionization that can remove the contaminants from indoor air that can affect us.

• Airborne Viruses. Everyone knows colds and flu are more prominent in winter. This is not because it’s cold out, but because we are spending more time inside, in tightly sealed spaces and are more likely to spread airborne illness to one another. Purifying your indoor air and ventilating can help reduce the spread of airborne illnesses.

• Mold. When a cold surface meets warm air, condensation can occur and moisture breeds mold. Be sure insulation and vapor barriers are installed correctly and voids don’t exist that will allow the cold exterior of the home to meet the warmed inside surfaces. Molds produce many symptoms such as allergies, etc. that can affect health.

• Chemical Gasses and Odors. The average home contains over 25 gallons of hazardous chemicals according to the EPA. These can range from being odorous, to being irritating and making you sick. In a closed up winter home these gasses can concentrate. Be aware of keeping cleaners, etc in well ventilated spaces and away from living spaces.

• Be Careful with Humidifiers. Many families purchase humidifiers to treat the dry winter air which can produce dry eyes, throats, etc. It is essential to perform regular cleaning and maintenance on these units. Moist warm air is a perfect breeding ground for molds and bacteria which can affect health.

• Environmental Stress. These stressors can produce real physical ailments. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is one that affects many people during the darker winter season with depression, fatigue, loss of appetite, sleep disorders, etc. Maximize sunlight exposure and light indoor spaces brightly to minimize these affects. Also bi-polar air ionization has been shown to be beneficial to counter the symptoms of SAD.

• Fresh Air. The EPA states that indoor air is 2 to 5 times worse than outdoor air. Letting some outdoor air in can be quite helpful to reduce indoor contaminants. Also there are many systems that can integrate with heating systems that can bring in pre-conditioned outdoor air which can improve air quality and energy efficiency.

• Keep the House Clean. It is important to pay special attention to cleaning surfaces, floors, furnishings, carpets, etc. to combat odors and the spread of bacteria, viruses and germs. Use non-toxic cleaners to avoid airborne chemical irritant build-up.

• Have Your Furnace Checked. It is important to have your furnace checked before heating season begins. Damaged or poorly operating heating systems can emit carbon monoxide, an odorless deadly gas. Also be sure to have a carbon monoxide detector installed to detect and alert to the presence of carbon monoxide.

• Keep the Air Moving. Most heating systems will blow the heated air into the room when the thermostat calls for heat; otherwise the system is off completely. Most systems have a “fan on” option which allows the fan to operate whether the heat is needed or not. This will help air quality as filtration and air purification systems only work when there is air movement. Moving the air will also help to keep it healthy.
