Are air ionizers medical devices manufactured to cure specific diseases or
A: NO, ionizers
enhance the environment with healthy negative ions. The overall
effects of air ionization will depend on the individual person.
There are some physicians prescribing air ionization for use in combating
allergies & sinusitis and other disorders, but they are not
manufactured or marketed as medical devices.
Do all air ionization products emit ozone with the ionization?
A: To a very small degree,
yes. Pentex ionizers ozone levels are virtually undetectable
compared to many competitors units that give off odors and cause
headaches for the user.
Do air ionization products go through walls?
A: No, regardless of how
powerful the ionizer is, air ionization cannot go through walls. If a
manufacturer or distributor claims their ionizers can go through
walls, it is ozone that is going through the wall. You
should investigate the ozone levels extensively before purchasing.
Is ozone harmful to people?
A: Ozone can be explained as
"natures cleaning agent". If the pollutants are high, it is
necessary for the ozone levels to increase proportionally. The
National Weather Service issues OZONE ALERTS for heavy smog or
pollution in the air. Many ionizer manufacturers downplay the
ozone levels in ionization. The OSHA laws set specific limits
for exposures to ozone (.04 parts per million is unhealthy).
Pentex ionizers emit levels of .01 parts per billion, virtually
Can the Pentex / Wein VI-2500 be used in rooms smaller than 800 sq.
A: Absolutely! The
VI-2500 ionizer is specially designed to be used around sensitive
electronic equipment without interfering with their operation.
If you want the 450 trillion ions in a smaller room, the more negative
ions the merrier.
How do Pentex ionizers compare to other ionizers such as the Sharper
Image Quadra or the Silas machines?
A: Studies have confirmed
that the Pentex units can be up to ten times more effective than
either of those other ionizers. Here is a
link to one of those studies.
Is it harmful to keep the Pentex ionizers running all day or should
they be unplugged when you are not home or at work with the unit?
A: There is no such thing as
too many negative ions when your health is concerned. There are
no adverse side affects from negative ions! Pentex room
ionizers cost just pennies a month to operate.
Can Pentex ionizers be purchased in major retail stores
like Walmart or K-Mart?
A: NO, Pentex ionizers are
only available from approved Pentex distributors. The effective
Quality Control program used by Pentex makes retail distribution
Am I going to need to stock up on filters or other parts just in case
Pentex changes the product line?
A: NO! Pentex room
ionizers have no moving parts or filters to replace. Many other
manufacturers of ionization products that use filters, intentionally
change their products every few years, making already sold units
obsolete. This causes a new demand for their sales department
and an increase in expenditures for you as a customer.
Does Pentex have a commercial size ionization unit for large office
A: No, the VI-2500 is the
largest capacity ionizer available from Pentex. If you have
large office areas, strategically placed room / environmental ionizers
can effectively do a much better job of ionization than HVAC units
with ionization components and for much less expense. For
companies that cannot afford the expense of providing ionizers for
every work area in your building, a suggestion could be implementing a
cost-share program for those employees wishing to improve their work
environment and health. The employee should feel better and be
more productive, making the ionizer purchase a win-win situation for
