    If this thing was so great, there'd be people on here raving about it.

    Dunno how well it does/doesn't work, but GPS plasma systems are being spec'ed in a commercial job that we are installing right now on a school. They seem to believe in them.

    Be very interesting to have some feedback from the school install once the school is in operation for a few months.... Being the "adopted okie" I am, I need a "show me" on these.

    I installed one of the gps units, the iwave-r right before Christmas. I had a 8' tall Christmas tree in my living room, after installing the iwave i couldn't smell it anymore. I run my fan in the on position through the heating season, but in cooling i run it in circulate mode for humidity reasons. When it cycles off i start smelling my house again. When it cycles on i can't smell anything. I love it!

    There's a video online of it dissipating a jar full of smoke in seconds, i have done it to with a demo model we have on hand. Pretty impressive...

    I hope there is new technology that will clean up indoor air. In certain seasons if I bring in outside air my allergies go nuts. Juniper, mulberry season. Fresh isn't always the answer if it's contaminated.
    When electronic air cleaners were new the sales people had a small box that they would blow cigarette smoke into ( seems everyone smoked). They would plug the box cord in the wall, push a button and the smoke would disappear. There were wires in the box that would have high voltage on them and act like an EAC. A big WOW when people saw that happen.
    I know science isn't done with this yet.

    When I did the controls at a casino way back there were what looked like large electron tubes. I wasn't able to find out much at the time but they were supposed to get rid or smoke. As I don't gamble I never got to see if they did much.
    They were marketed by Trane I think.

    Primary basics for indoor air quality are:
    1. A filtered fresh air change in 4-5 hours depending the indoor pollutant and quality outdoor air. This purges indoor pollutants and renew oxygen.
    2. Maintain 50-55% RH inside the occupied space to control biological growth of mold/dust mites and etc.
    3. Wet or near spots indoors can not be continuous for more than 24 hour at with potiential growth of mold. This inculdes ducts interior/exterior/drywall/grills/attic space. After wetting these surfaces for 24 hour, thy need to be dried periodically for several hours every day to mold growth accumulation which will adversely most sensitive occupants. Cooling coil/condensate pans may be the exception to this if the condesing surfaces has condensate flow high enough to flush fine organic dust and mold/bacteria spores down the drain. Also maintaing <50-60^F in these wet areas slows biological growth.
    These are basics before going to the more advance concepts of cleaning air which have their own unique challenges.
    Many suggest a medium single speed a/c installed/setup to provide the optimum %RH, 45-5%RH during extend runs and design conditions, inculding fresh air and occupants. During times of less than the design load conditions, expect the indoor %RH to rise depending latent load. Latent coolings tend to remain at design conditions during evenings and rainy days. When the indoor %RH approaches 60%RH, supplement dehumidification is needed. Slowing air flow more and removing more latent and less sensible improves maintaining humidity control depending on actual latent loads.
    Most actual latent loads of fresh air infiltration/ require +40% sensible load conditons to remove the typical 4-6 lbs per hour latent/moisture to maintain near 50%RH neaded for ideal conditions of 75%RH, 50%RH for comfort.
    Supplemental dehumidification by whole house dehumidifier connected the is simplest and most cost effective method when added correctly to properly setup a/c. Controls and ducting are critical.
    This post is max at length for most. More information check out the
    Utra-Aire.com and other info web sites indoor air quality. Sort out the real info from the pitch.
    Looking more discussion.
    Regards Teddy Bear
    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    I had similar results with a Cold Plasma Purifier. My wife no longer buys expensive Scensy wax products, because she can't smell them anymore!

    I've also noticed that my child, that has worst problems with allergies, does much better when we have the purifier installed.

    A school might be a poor example of a product's value because mostly just the school board needs to want it. They often are not professionals in the air quality field. Here it's mostly political.
    Someone up the ladder just needs to be sold on the hype.
    I would like to know if any white papers are out there from a neutral party that has shown value.

    thanks for the link!
    Was the cold plasma purifier ever installed? If so, what were the results?
