Haledyne Debuts Air Sanitizing Technology for Healthier Home
Date:4/27/2009

Traditional ceiling fan technology teams up with ultraviolet-C light energy for 99% germ reduction

CLEVELAND, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Haledyne announced today the introduction of the Healthy Fan, which improves the indoor environment of a home by killing more than 99 percent of airborne germs. The Healthy Fan maximizes air circulation by utilizing traditional ceiling fan technology in combination with a mounted air purifying medallion. It uses Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) light energy to decrease the amount of airborne bacteria, viruses and mold spores.

With Americans spending more than $2 trillion annually on health care--much of which is spent treating preventable illnesses--there has been a great push toward preventive health care solutions.

"With Healthy Fan, the airborne health risks that exist in a home are greatly diminished, especially for more vulnerable populations like children and the elderly," says Dr. John Zak, retired surgeon and CEO of Haledyne. "Healthy Fan can help individuals proactively keep their families healthy."

Healthy Fan works by circulating the air in a room, and trapping dust particles and allergens in a charged filter. Some germs, especially virus cells, are extremely tiny (<.3 microns) and, can therefore be suspended in air. These germs are the target of the Healthy Fan's UV-C lights, which alter the DNA of germs, halting their ability to reproduce and killing them. UV-C light energy has been proven effective against salmonella, influenza, e-coli, staph, strep and even tuberculosis. The Healthy Fan can sanitize an average houseful of air every 15 minutes.

The germ-killing ability of UV-C energy is well-documented, and has been utilized for more than 50 years. However, its use in combination with traditional ceiling fan is the unique and crucial element that makes the Healthy Fan most effective in a home.

Scientific research has demonstrated that when room air is continually mixed by a ceiling fan, the effect of UV-C air sterilization is dramatically improved. A study published in PLoS Medicine in March 2009 tested the efficacy of UV light in reducing the transmission of tuberculosis bacteria, and found that coupling UV-C technology with proper room air circulation was effective.

In addition, a recent study conducted by researchers from the University of California at Berkeley, School of Public Health, and published in the highly regarded clinical journal, Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, researchers showed a direct correlation between increased room ventilation and a reduction in the incidence of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The study concluded that increased room air ventilation may be an effective intervention for further decreasing SIDS risk in infants in adverse sleep environments.

Healthy Fan safely utilizes UV-C by controlling it to extend in a set circumference and within only 3 inches of the ceiling plane. A user is never directly able to view, or be in contact with, the UV-C emitter bulb, which is always shielded by the medallion cover. If the medallion cover is removed, a microswitch will inactivate the circuit and the bulbs will not be lit.

The Healthy Fan starts at $229.00 and can be purchased online at www.HealthyFan.com. On average, the bulbs will last 8,000 hours. In comparison, an ordinary 100 watt household bulb will last 750 hours. Even with heavy and continuous use, one can expect about 2 years of life from the UV-C emitter.
