APCO® whole-house air treatment systems detox the air as it is circulated by the HVAC system. They feature a unique combination of UV-C light and activated carbon which achieves unmatched microbial and odor reduction without producing any harmful ozone. This technology is particularly effective at reducing odor-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include toxic chemical vapors like formaldehyde and toluene.

The Whole Pie

Airborne contaminants are divided 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.

PROVEN • VALIDATED • CERTIFIED • AWARDED

APCO® has been proven safe and effective in numerous laboratory tests. It has been validated as ozone-free by UL Labs, certified by CARB, ETL & CE, and has won the prestigious AHR Innovation Award for indoor air quality.

How APCO® Works

APCO® systems are installed in the central air system where they continuously remove airborne contaminants as they pass by. APCO® technology is based on a process called photocatalytic oxidation (similar to the catalytic converter on cars). Germicidal UV-C light reacts with titanium dioxide infused carbon cells; this neutralizes VOC contaminants, leaving only harmless water vapor and CO2. 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.

UV-C light, filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere, sterilizes microbes which have no defense against it.

Proven Effective

Test results from Airmid Healthgroup (an ISO 17025 accredited allergy testing laboratory) have proven the effectiveness of APCO technology.  The tests verified that the device has the capability to both sterilize microorganisms and reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs). APCO titanium-dioxide infused activated carbon cells were shown to be “capable of reducing high concentrations” of VOCs commonly found in residential as well as commercial buildings, including hospitals, hotels, offices and schools.  

Inactivation results from testing performed on the ASHRAE Standard 52.2 test duct system:

  • Bacteria (S.epidermidis) – 98.85%
  • Virus (MS2 coliphage) – 99.03%
  • Mold (A.niger) – 78.8%
  • Odors (VOCs) – 99.9%
