Airius PureAir: Infection Prevention at Home


As a primary school teacher Seoda has been working hard during the pandemic to ensure the safety and welfare of her pupils and fellow staff. Her main concern was that her fiancée, who recently graduated and was now working as a Doctor at Mater Hospital in Dublin, may contract COVID19. If he was asymptomatic, he may pass the virus on to her, which she may then take in to the school.


In response to these growing concerns Seoda researched a wide range of purification systems and selected the Airius PureAir system as it provided both air and surface purification. Working with a local contractor Seoda arranged for Ermen Systems to supply and install the system as soon as possible. The unit was fitted seamlessly within their roof space in a matter of hours, providing immediate protection.


The effect of the Airius PureAir Home Series may not be visible, but the results are profound:

  • • Reduces chances of virus transmission to pupils
  • • 99.9% effective at neutralising COVID19
  • • Provides continuous 24/7 purification
  • • Airborne & surface protection
  • • Protects against 99% of communicable illnesses
  • • Significant reduction in allergens
  • • No more unpleasant odours or VOCs
  • • Efficient airflow has improved home comfort


Prior to installation Seoda carried great concern for her students, aware of the potential transmission link from her fiancée at the hospital, who was exposed to COVID19 and numerous other diseases on a daily basis, to the children at her school. However, Ermen Systems were able to install the PureAir system with a day providing Seoda with instant peace of mind. The Positive Input Ventilation benefits of the system also prevents damp and mould issues, protecting their home as well as their health.


“I am a primary school teacher living and working in the Midlands. Recently my fiancée graduated as a doctor and is now working in the Mater hospital in Dublin. With my job, I am fearful of bringing COVID19 and other illnesses into our school and potentially infecting colleagues and children.

We installed the Airius PureAir in our home in order to prevent the spread of illnesses in the case that my partner was asymptomatic. I now feel much more comfortable going to work knowing that Airius PureAir has disinfected all surfaces and air it has come in contact with.”

PureAir Technology Explained

How does the PureAir Series PHI Cell kill bacteria and viruses in the air and on surfaces?

The PureAir PhotohydroIonisation (PHI) Cell is a kind of UV light that emits advanced oxidation plasma. Included as part of a fan system, the PHI cell distributes hydro-peroxides, super-oxide ions and hydroxide ions throughout the space, neutralising 99% of micro-organisms in the air and on surfaces.

PHI cells produce a group of oxidants known as hydro-peroxides. Far from new to our world, hydro-peroxides have been around for 3.5 billion years – and today they are commonly used in food processing environments, where they offer an anti-microbial treatment without leaving chemical residues.

Benefits of PureAir PHI Technology

Choosing an Airius PureAir PHI Series destratification fan with its integrated PHI Cell is a simple way to reduce bacteria, viruses and odours in your environment.
