How Ionization Works


Nature is always balancing negative and positive ions through rainfall, lightning strikes, the evaporation of water as waves crash, streams etc.

Our indoor air does not have this balance and has far more positive ions which are not positive for your health.

Positive ions are charged particles that are present in the air around us. They’re created through various processes, especially when there’s some action that involves breaking apart molecules. Here’s how they can be generated indoors:

Electronics and Devices:
Many electronic devices, like computers, TVs, and phones, emit positive ions as they operate. So, the more gadgets you have running, the more positive ions they release into the air.

Heating and Cooling Systems:
Air conditioning and heating systems can create positive ions as they work to regulate the temperature.

Pollution and Chemicals:
Sometimes, indoor pollutants like smoke, cleaning products, or even certain materials in furniture can release positive ions into the air.

So, why might these positive ions be considered “bad” in excess? Well, it’s not that they’re inherently evil, but too many positive ions in the air can potentially lead to some not-so-great effects on our well-being:

Mood and Energy:
An abundance of positive ions can make the air feel heavy and might lead to feelings of tiredness, stress, or even irritability. Think of it like a gloomy cloud hanging around.

Respiratory Sensitivity:
Some people, especially those with respiratory issues like allergies or asthma, might find that high levels of positive ions can worsen their symptoms and make it harder to breathe comfortably.

Air Quality:
Positive ions can contribute to making the air feel stale or stuffy. This is why sometimes indoor spaces can feel a bit less inviting, especially when there’s limited ventilation.

The key is finding a balance.
In modern indoor environments where electronics and other factors can lead to an excess of positive ions, it’s a good idea to consider ways to introduce more negative ions (the “good” ones) It’s all about achieving that harmonious indoor atmosphere that keeps you feeling your best! Our needlepoint negative ionization sends trillions of negative ions into your indoor air. Here’s how that benefits you.

We have invisible friends in the air called ions? Well, some of them are “positive ions” and some are “negative ions.” Now, the good ones are the negative ions, and they are like little mood boosters for us!
When negative ions are around, they work like superheroes for our mood and health. They can balance things out by neutralizing those pesky positive ions. So, they make us feel more relaxed, happy, and energized. It’s like a natural pick-me-up from nature!
But wait, there’s more! Negative ions also help clean up the air by attaching themselves to things like dust, pollen, and other allergens. When these allergens get a negative ion hug, they become heavy and fall to the ground, away from our noses and lungs. So, it’s like having a little air cleaner right there with you!
You can find negative ions in places like near waterfalls, after a thunderstorm, or even in special devices like My Triad Aer purifiers. So, the next time you feel a bit down or tired inside, remember that negative ions are like tiny cheerleaders making you feel better and keeping the air around you cleaner and healthier! Cool, right? 

Watch Our Explainer Video For Visual Clarification:

(1) This video shows in real-time how the Ion Antenna and Needlepoint Ionizer technology works when deploying the Triad Aer technology.

(2) Watch closely as the box is completely filled with smoke which represents the VOC gases and pollution commonly found in almost all indoor air environments and/or offices.

(3) At a certain point, we turn on both ionizers. The needlepoint ionizer works quickest with the larger particles in the air, while the radio wave ionizer works slower, with the smallest particles first, combining them into larger particles that the needlepoint ionizer eliminates.

Watch the video to see how ionization works in a room.

The smoke represents ALL particles in the air – no matter how small.

First the smoke = NO ionization – Then ionization turned on = NO smoke!
