Frequently Asked Questions
about the NA50

Q. "Since the it doesn't have a filter to collect pollutants, where does the stuff go that is cleaned out of the air?"


A. Good question. The simple answer is that the odors and gasses are simply oxidized and turned into molecules of carbon dioxide and water vapor (they disappear); and the larger air-borne dust, dander and pollen settle to the floor where they can be vacuumed or mopped up in normal house cleaning.

These ions are electrically charged particles generated in nature by natural forces, like the sun and earth's radiation, water spray and lightning. They are totally harmless to humans. Normal ion levels are from 1,000 to 4,000 ions per cubic centimeter in fresh country air, with a ratio of five positive to four negative. The typical office, however, many contain as few as 20 negative and 35 positive ions per cubic centimeter.

Ions are short-lived and need constant replenishing. That's part of what the this purifier accomplishes. The balance of negative to positive ions has an effect on our sense of well-being. For example, doctors in Israel have reported that hot, dry "witch winds", high in positive ions stimulate complaints of discomfort. Little wonder that most people feel their best when near waterfalls and beaches or in the mountains where negative ion counts are much higher.

1. What is effective range of a NA50?
Up to 500 sq. ft. depending on air flow (an operating paddle fan, for example, will assist in moving ions and ozone throughout area). The Natural Air's air regeneration process and fan can be adjusted from low to high, depending on the size of the room and the strength of offending pollution.

Return to top

2. Where is the best location for a NA50 within the home?
In a central location, six feet (or more) off the floor, close to the source of odors such as mold or mildew.

Return to top

3. How long does it take to renew the air within the maximum effective range?
Based on environment and movement of air, within minutes to a few hours.

Return to top

4. Should I run my NA50 unit all the time or just when we're in the room?
For best results, cleanest and freshest air, run the machine constantly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The machine is designed for constant use and only requires easy periodic cleaning for maintenance.

Return to top

5. Should I run my NA50 when the doors and windows are open?
Yes, under normal temperate conditions. the NA50 air purifier will remove air pollutants such as garden and lawn sprays and pollen that may be carried indoors by the breeze. The device is less effective, however, in high-humidity, non-air conditioned environments.

Return to top

6. In a big house, how many units are recommended?
Placement of units is determined by individual needs and conditions. Are there pets in the home, high pollen count in the area? How many heating/ cooling zones? Refer to #2 above: one unit may be sufficient if placed in the ideal location close to a single source of odors, but generally, one NA50 is recommended for each 500 square feet of space.

Return to top

7. With the ideal number of units, how long to purify the air in a house?
See #3 above.

Return to top

8. What is the ideal location within a room?
See #2 above.

Return to top

9. Are there environments where the units would not be effective?
The units do not operate as effectively in a high-temperature/high humidity environment such as non air conditioned spaces such as attics or garages.

Return to top

10. How does the NA50 air purifier clean or purify the air?
The short answer: by replicating Mother Nature's Natural Air cleaning and freshening qualities.

Part of this process generates negative ions, which attract air pollutants such as dust mite particles, skin flakes, dust and smoke. Another part of the NA50 air purifier process releases "activated" oxygen which reduces odors from germs, mold and mildew.

Return to top

11. What kind of filter does NA50 air purifier use?
The NA50 air purifier is an air regenerator, not a filter. There's no filter to change or replace. The NA50 air purifier does have screens which are designed to simply stop large particulates (hair, dust-bunnies, etc) from clogging the works. These filters need to be cleaned only when they become visibly "clogged." Simply brush off the accumulated matter.

Return to top

12. Does the NA50 air purifier have a fan?
Yes. The fan's purpose is not to bring pollutants and odors into the machine, but to send Mother Nature's air regenerating agents out to reduce pollutants and odors at their source.

Return to top

13. Because NA50 air purifier doesn't have a filter to collect pollutants, where does the stuff go that it cleans out of the air?
Many odors and gasses are simply oxidized and turned into molecules of carbon dioxide and water vapor. They virtually disappear!

Larger air-borne dust, dander and pollen, settle to the floor, where they can be vacuumed or mopped up in normal house cleaning.

Return to top

14. What are ions?
Ions are electrically charged particles generated by natural radiation from the earth and sun, water spray and lightning. They are totally harmless to humans.

Normal ion levels are from 1,000 to 4,000 ions per cubic centimeter in fresh country air, with a ratio of 5 positive to 4 negative. The typical office, however, may contain as few as 20 negative and 35 positive ions per cubic centimeter.

Negative ion counts rise much higher in the mountains, some desert areas, near waterfalls and ocean beaches.

Ions are short-lived and need constant replenishing. The balance of negative to positive ions has an effect of our sense of well-being. For example, doctors in Israel report that hot, dry "Witches Winds" high in positive ions stimulate complaints of discomfort. On the other hand is the legendary sense of invigoration and good spirits people enjoy in a balanced, negative ion-charged atmosphere found in the mountains and by the sea-shore.

Return to top

15. Is it safe to use the NA50 in a baby's room?
The NA50 air purifier regenerates clean, "fresh air" as found in the purest natural environments. Do not exceed a purifier setting higher than the square feet or square meters of the room.

Return to top

16. Will the NA50 air purifier get rid of the smell of cigarette and cigar smoke?
Yes Our filterless, air regeneration technology not only reduces the visible smoke but the odor as well.

Return to top

17. Will the NA50 air purifier get rid of the gasses from new carpet?
Yes. Cooking odors? Yes. That musty smell of mildew? Yes. The key quick removal of offensive odors is good air flow -- movement of the air by a paddle fan or similar -- over the source of the odors.

Return to top

18. Will the NA50 air purifier get rid of the smell of fresh paint?
Yes. Make sure you have good ventilation while you paint, then place the NA50 air purifier about six feet off the floor near the cold-air return of your air conditioning system and the new paint odor will be removed in far less time.

Return to top

19. Will the NA50 air purifier get rid of pet dander?
Yes. The NA50 air purifier regenerates the cleansing agents of Mother Nature to dramatically reduce the amount of particles such as pet dander suspended in the air.

Actually, most people are not bothered by cat dander itself, but by the enzymes contained in the aerosolized saliva produced by cats grooming themselves. The enzyme attaches itself to the dander which, when inhaled, irritates the lungs. NA50 air purifier process removes dander from the "breathing zone."

Note: The "sparklies" you see in a beam of sunlight streaming through the window are not just dust and pet dander, but also particles of skin that all humans constantly shed. Just as it does with pet dander and smoke, the Natural Air's process dramatically reduces the amount of this suspended pollution.

Return to top

20. Will my the NA50 air purifier get rid of sawdust in a work shop?
The majority of sawdust is made up of large particles which are best removed by a vacuum or air filter. The NA50 air purifier is not a filter. It's regeneration process will, however, get rid of the odors produced by woodworking, painting, etc.

Return to top

21. Will the NA50 air purifier get rid of the mold on bathroom tile?
Yes. The regeneration process attacks the mold and turns it into a white powder that can simply be wiped away. Place the NA50 air purifier device in the problem room, turn it on high and close the door.

Return to top

22. Is the NA50 air purifier effective against asbestos?
The device will not destroy asbestos.

Return to top

23. Is the NA50 air purifier effective against radon?
No.

Return to top

24. Is the NA50 air purifier effective against airborne pollen and other allergens?
In an air conditioned environment, the NA50 air purifier's regeneration process will reduce the amounts of airborne allergens brought in from the outside. As effective as the regeneration process is, however, it cannot keep up with the challenge of an area totally open to outside air during "pollen season". Close the windows and the NA50 air purifier will be able to catch up with the pollen load.

Return to top

25. Can the NA50 air purifier help my asthma?
The NA50 air purifier is not a medical device. Regenerating the air to Mother Nature's standards may, however, reduce asthma symptoms in some cases.

Return to top

26. Will a the NA50 air purifier unit in a day care center reduce the incidence of colds and flu among the children and staff?
Airborne materials, such as those emitted by a sneeze, ride on particulates in the air. NA50 air purifier reduces the amount of particulates in the air. NA50 air purifier regeneration process helps reduce airborne contaminates.

Return to top

27. Is the NA50 air purifier safe to use in an elderly person's room?
Yes. The NA50 air purifier simply regenerates the natural elements of fresh, outside air. Natural Air's ability to cleanse the air of odors will also keep the room smelling fresher.

Return to top

28. Will the NA50 air purifier remove and keep mold out of our basement?
Mold grows best in damp and dark environments typical of many below-ground basement rooms. The key to eliminating mold is eliminate the moisture. This may require the application of some form of vapor or water barrier to the below-ground surfaces and/or the use of a de-humidifier. A NA50 air purifier unit will help in mold control and it's accompanying musty mildew odor. See Section 4

Return to top

29. Should I move the NA50 air purifier unit into my child's bedroom when he/she has a cold or flu?
Couldn't hurt. For generations, physicians have recommended "taking the air" -- breathing fresh outdoor air and in the sun as a assist toward good health. The NA50 air purifier simply regenerates the cleansing elements of Mother Nature.

Return to top

30. Since the NA50 air purifier doesn't use a filter that would show me what it has removed from the air, how do I know its working?
First, smell the difference in the room where the NA50 air purifier is placed. Second, notice how quickly offensive odors and smoke (as from cigarettes or the fireplace) disappear. Third, check the next time the sun sends a beam of light through the window. You'll see fewer "floaties," especially the sparkly kind of sloughed-off skin. Finally, notice how much better you and your family feel; spirits and energy levels a little higher.

Return to top

31. Does the NA50 air purifier meet FDA standards as a "medical device?"
The NA50 air purifier is NOT a medical device and makes no health claims.

Return to top

32. I have asthma/allergies. Will Medicare pay for a NA50 air purifier unit?
Again, the NA50 air purifier is not a medical device. However, if your doctor writes a prescription for an "air cleaner" or similar description, Medicare may (and we stress the word "may") approve the expense.

Return to top

33. How is the NA50 air purifier better than other air filters?
The NA50 air purifier is not an air filter, it is an air regenerator and does not use filters in its freshening, cleansing process. Filters strain particulates out of the air. The effectiveness of a filter depends on its ability to stop particulates of certain sizes, the smaller the better. Pollen, for example, is from 10-100 microns in size, animal dander from .3 to 10 microns; lung damaging dust from .5-5 microns in size. Cigarette smoke, for example, is .01-1 microns in size and only the finest filters can remove it from passing air.* Filters trap particulates in their fibers or screens. As the filter becomes loaded with trapped particulates, more and more fan power is required to move the air, and less and less air moves through it. Filters must be replaced or cleaned to maintain efficiency. The NA50 air purifier regenerates the natural qualities of Mother Nature's best air. It does not filter it. It purifies by sending its NA50 air purifier-freshening agents out into the room and home.

* 1 micron = 1/25,400th of an inch, far less than the point of a straight pin.

Return to top

34. Do I need replacement ozone plates or ion needles for the NA50 air purifier ?
The ion emitter needle points and the ceramic cylinder are long-lasting and are made of superior materials. NO GLASS is used. If the ozone output should ever become insufficient, the inside of the cylinder can be cleaned.

Getting the Most From
Your NA50 air purifier

The NA50 air purifier can do far more than deliver mountain fresh air and remove dust, smoke, odors from cooking, mold and chemicals, etc. It's a highly versatile and useful tool to cleanse your whole house!

Clean the kid's room and confined areas.

The NA50 air purifier regeneration process reduces germs on surfaces in the following manner-- Place the NA50 air purifier in an elevated position facing the area to be cleaned.

Clean the bathrooms.

Place the NA50 air purifier in an elevated position. Open cabinet doors, shower doors, lid on toilet. Face the NA50 air purifier toward any problem areas such as mold on tile. Set the switch on "High," close the door, and let it run for at least two hours.

Freshen your clothes closets.

Elevate the NA50 air purifier on a stool facing the open closet. Space out clothes on hangers to assist air flow among them. Set the NA50 air purifier Purifier on "High" and let it run for at least an hour. Not only freshens the clothes, but destroys any lingering odor from shoes.

Deodorize pet areas.

Pet bed areas, or (especially) cat litter box areas, often need odor control. Elevate the NA50 air purifier above and facing the area to be treated, set the fan on "High," run for one to two hours. The NA50 air purifier can even remove the scent of cat urine embedded in carpet and other floor covering! Be patient! Heavy cat urine odors may take six to twelve hours to eliminate.

Sports shoes and equipment.

Put sports shoes and sweat-scented equipment within a few inches of the NA50 air purifier Set switch on "Low." Run for 30 minutes to an hour or until "sniff-test" determines de-odorizing is complete.

Destroy mold.

Molds have the potential to cause a variety of health problems. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions, such as hay fever symptoms, in some sensitive people. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Certain molds -- best known is stachybotrys -- have the potential to produce extremely potent toxins that can cause problems ranging from sinus infections to lung hemorrhage to brain damage.

 


 

Important Note: The ceramic cylinder and the needles inside it are the only user-maintained elements within the NA50 air purifier case. Removing or loosening any other element is totally unnecessary and will void all warranties.


About Air Quality, Air Filters and Air Regenerators

Why is "fresh air" fresh?

A big, deep breath of fresh mountain or seashore air. Makes you feel good physically, mentally, and spiritually, doesn't it?

Scientists are attempting to discover just why it is that, say after a thunderstorm, people seem so energized. Or why when a dry hot wind blows off the desert people seem to irritable.

They've learned that one reason for that good feeling is the "balance" of elements (including Ozone and negative ions) in the air we breath. When the air is "balanced" or regenerated by lightning and moving water (waterfalls or ocean waves) our mood is light and spirits lifted. When the air is "unbalanced" by pollutants such as dust, bacteria, chemicals, etc., we're discomforted -- our moods are darker, we don't feel as good as we think we should.

The beauty of Negative Ions

Beside being "mood elevators," negative ions are Mother Nature's air cleaners. Pollution-bearing positive ions are attracted to them like iron to a magnet. When negative ion and pollution-bearing positive ion come together, the combined matter is too heavy to float and falls to the earth.

Negative ions are short-lived. They need to be constantly replenished. Tightly closed and insulated offices and homes keep negative ions out while allowing positive ions to accumulate.

An ion generator such as used in the NA50 air purifier regeneration process constantly replenishes negative ions in the atmosphere. These not only improve our sense of well-being, but remove contaminants from the air.

The cleansing power of Ozone.

Ozone is "activated oxygen," (O3) a form of oxygen that carries three atoms instead of the more common two (O2). The three-atom form of oxygen is highly unstable. It seeks out and deposits its excess third atom on organic molecules it comes in contact with. Organic molecules such as those creating odors (onions, cooking odors, etc) and other molecules can be "oxidized," -- deactivated or destroyed -- by the free oxygen atom.

As one of Mother Nature's most effective cleansers, Ozone flows freely over surfaces and into crevices, reducing odors and contaminants. Ozone can also attack Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) odors emitted from glue, paint, carpet, plastics, plywood and other composite materials as well as lingering odors left by powerful household cleaning products.

Ozone FAQ

 

The difference between an air regenerator and an air filter.

An air regenerator mimics to the fullest extent possible Mother Nature's own air freshening/cleansing properties. Air regenerators such as NA50 air purifier don't require filters or powerful fans. They send their air cleansing elements out into the air, rather than pull air through a filter to clean it.

An air filter is basically a screen which traps and holds pollutants from the air its fan pulls through it. Filters fine enough to trap smoke require a strong fan. As the filter traps more and more particulates, more and more fan power is required. Filters fill up with entrapped matter and must be frequently changed.

To truly cleanse the air of contaminants such as smoke and the fine dust that enters the lungs, a filter must trap particles as small as .01-1 micron. One micron equals 1/25,400th of an inch. Even then, all of the air in the room must somehow go through the filter.

Air regenerators such as the NA50 air purifier, however, make particles larger and Mother Nature (gravity) does the rest.

 

Why you should be concerned about the quality of indoor air.

  • Air pollution poses a health hazard in forty percent of all buildings, according to the World Health Organization.
     
  • Twenty percent of all employees suffer major illness related to indoor air pollution. Illnesses include allergies, asthma, and auto-immune disease.
     
  • Some 6,000 new chemical compounds are developed each year. Many of these are used indoors, at home or at work. Their fumes join with those of older compounds, such as the formaldehyde used in carpet and building materials.
  • On average, indoor air is 2-10 times more polluted than the worst outdoor air.
     
  • Virus and bacteria, including those that cause the flu and TB, thrive in the ductwork and heating/cooling coils of air conditioning systems. Some HVAC systems have been found to contain up to 27 different species of fungi.
