Introducing Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation
The award-winning APCO
system (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) represents an entirely new type of air purifier. APCO
is installed in the ductwork of the central air system where it scrubs the air as is passes by. APCO’s unique combination of UVC light and activated carbon achieves unmatched germ and odor reduction without producing any harmful ozone. APCO
is particularly effective at reducing odor-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include toxic chemical vapors like formaldehyde and toluene present in one-third of the air you breathe.
The Other Two Thirds
Airborne contaminants can be divided roughly into thirds. Conventional filtration is effective against particulates, like dust, but has no effect on the other two thirds. APCO
is proven to safely reduce both VOCs and biological contaminants inside the air system and throughout the home.
Made in the USA
Fresh-Aire UV products are designed and assembled in Jupiter, Florida. All of our parts and sub-assemblies are also made in America with a few unavoidable exceptions.
Pick a Winner
is a winner of the prestigious AHR Innovation Award, the
highest honor in the HVAC industry! There are several APCO
models, designed to fit all types of air systems, which all use the the same award-winning technology.
We will be happy to help you select the right one for your home or business.
We are so confident in the quality of our design and manufacturing that this product comes with a lifetime warranty on all parts except the UV lamp (which needs to be replaced every one or two years depending on model).
Fresh Air UV Ozone Free
Many air purifiers that claim to reduce odors do so by generating harmful ozone. APCO
not only does not produce ozone, it actually removes it from the air!
Let’s face it, no one wants visiting friends or family to smell the cat box or last night’s garlic sauce. You could use a spray or a candle but those things just perfume the air. APCO
actually removes odors by transforming odor-causing VOC molecules into harmless water vapor and CO2. So keep the cat, and fry that fish!
Moldy coils shorten the life of the air system and waste energy by reducing efficiency.
UVC light kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. An APCO whole-house air purifier improves indoor air quality by destroying odor-causing and potentially toxic VOCs, while sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air stream
Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation
APCO detoxes the air with a process called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), a technology similar to the catalytic converter on your car’s exhaust. UVC light reacts with titanium dioxide infused into the carbon which effectively disintegrates the captured contaminants, leaving only harmless water vapor and CO₂ which are released back into the air. This process leaves the carbon cells clean so they never fill up or need to be replaced. The result is clean, odor-free air throughout the home.
Germ-Killing Power of UVC Light
For over a century scientists have known about the germ-killing properties of UVC light. Because this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.
