What is Lightning Air?
The Lightning Air units recreate the same process as found in nature; to reduce odors and purify the air indoors. The LightningAir employs a unique cold-spark O3 generator to activate the oxygen and achieve this natural process - similar to lightning creation.
Needlepoint ionization maintains continuous ion expulsion and resists black wall effect. Polarizing positive and negative ions create a natural outdoor energizing effect.
Lightning Air Purifiers have no messy filters and no need for replacement parts. Geared to run 24 hours per day - just clean regularly. It has large durable ceramic plates that are removed through slots in the back of the unit and can be washed easily with bleach or denatured alcohol.
The sanitizer has a separate control from the ionizer. It can be turned on and adjusted to sanitize virus, fungus, bacteria, and remove odors or take care of problem areas such as musty closets and basements.
The ionizer reduces dust & particulate from the air space without the need for filtration and balances chaotic frequencies caused by wind, atmosphere and technology.
Modern buildings are constructed so tightly that odors and pollutants are trapped inside. Nature's own cleansing process, which uses both activated oxygen and negative ions are left outside unless you open windows.
Dust, pollen, molds, mildew, bacteria and viruses can fill the air in our living spaces. These can cause odors, irritation and allergic response. Fumes from paints, cleansers, carpets, pressed board, fabrics and other chemicals are also breathed in daily by you and your family.
According to the EPA many pollutants in the typical home or office are at least 10 times higher than in outdoor air. The average American spends 90% of their time indoors and takes over 20,000 breaths each day. Over 60% of our daily energy needs come from the air we breathe.
Have you ever walked into someone's home and noticed an odor that you are not accustomed to? Odors are constantly created in the spaces where we live. Finding a simple solution to clean air is not always easy but certainly essential.
Air Filters Are Only Part of the Solution
As air passes through a filter, small particles that are floating in the air are trapped. This is helpful in reducing particles such as dust, pollen and dander, but is only part of the solution. Most gases and odors pass right through even the best Hepa filters.
Clean Air is Essential for a healthy lifestyle
Activated oxygen or charged oxygen settings are adjustable for sanitizing, but normally kept at modest levels in an occupied space. Unused O3 will revert back to O2 in about an hour. Purifies a range of 200 to 3500 square feet depending on variables such as humidity, placement, amount of pollution and temperature.
Negative and positive ions work together in a 60% (neg.) - 40% (pos.) ratio. Attracting pollutants and particles; and like tiny magnets - drop them out of the air we breathe. Normal "fresh" air has a total ion concentration about 2,000-3,000 per cubic centimeter. Many environments are ion depleted with barely detectable levels of ionization. Lightning Air refreshes, purifies and replenishes a range of 200 to 3500 square feet depending on variables such as humidity, placement, amount of pollution and temperature.
Why buy a LightningAir Purifier?
LightningAir Purifiers are used to naturally clean indoor air and treat a full spectrum of indoor air pollution problems- even in vehicles, refrigerators, homes, RVs and offices.
Scientifically proven to reduce odors, chemical smoke and even tobacco smoke & it's particulates, these exclusive air purifiers can be used as a "chemical-free, non-toxic" alternative for reducing indoor pollutants, or for sanitizing & disinfecting surfaces.
How does nature clean the air?Through oxidation and ionization. Since it is not practical to open our windows year round, we offer products that re-create natures’ effect, yet exclusively for indoor use.
Unfortunately, the U.S. population spends over 90 billion dollars per year trying all kinds of things to solve their air quality problems - - sprays, chemical cleaners, perfumes & oils, inhalers, filters of all types, washing and cleaning regimens - - but these solutions only mask the problem, are ineffective, expensive and even contribute to the problem. View our complementary enviro-lifestyle products that clean & sanitize your home without chemicals.
The needed technology just didn't exist until … 1983 when a discovery was made that provided an elegant and effective solution; an expressly unique and proprietary air cleaning process.
Many people are very knowledgeable about the pollution we face daily in our cities from cars, factories, etc., but do you realize the HUGE amount of pollution found in your home? The United States EPA recently discovered that bad indoor air is the #1 environmental health threat - NOT factory and automobile emissions.
It all began in earnest in the 70's when everyone began to seal up their homes to save energy. Unfortunately, this 'sealing up' also 'sealed in' toxins from many sources inside our own living space. These toxins slowly, over time, wear down our immune systems and, as a result, make us vulnerable to all kinds of disease and dysfunction.
All this may seem hard to believe, especially since 'bad air' is invisible and we tend to think of our home as our refuge. But, the things in our indoor air are affecting everyone from infants to seniors. This silent, serious, and long-term health threat is in nearly every home, office and indoor environment and is called indoor pollution.
It consists of invisible particles, gases, and microbiological organisms. The sources of pollution can come from our floor, carpet, chairs, walls, ceiling, duct work, disinfectants, molds, mildew, dry cleaning, soaps, hairsprays, cologne, pets, and even dead skin! Eighty percent (80%) of the stuff floating around your home is dead skin...and dust mites love that!
Unfortunately, the average person may never suspect that many of their symptoms may be caused or aggravated by these slow acting, invisible, and stealthy toxins.
"Since 90% of each day is usually spent indoors, and only 10% is spent outdoors, the contents of the inside of our homes, schools, or work areas contain critical health-related factors. There is about 10 times more pollution inside homes than outside at the present time." - Doris Rapp. M.D. Is this your Child
"Indoor Air pollution is particularly dangerous because exposure to it is so constant." - Theron G. Randolph, M.D. An Alternative Approach to Allergies
"...most citizens were very likely to have the greatest contact with potentially toxic pollutants not outside but inside the places they usually consider to be essentially unpolluted, such as homes, offices and automobiles." Everyday Exposure to Toxic Pollutants, Scientific American, February 1998
The EPA reported in 1989 that "We are all living in a chemical soup.....indoor air pollution consistently causes greater health risks than hazardous waste sites"

Do the Air Cleaners Work?
A study was conducted in Williamsburg, Virginia, in collaboration with research scientist from John Hopkins University.
The use of the air cleaner reduced airborne fungal concentrations to 51% of the concentration measured in control rooms. Rooms with the air cleaners had fungal concentrations that were 59.74% of control rooms.
"Although the exact nature mechanism leading to airborne fungal concentration reductions is unclear, the effect is well substantiated and statistically robust."
The following excerpts were taken from tests conducted in March of 1999 by an Industrial and Environmental Safety Specialists testing facility.
Penicillium chrysogenum (airborne mold) was reduced an average of 49.7% in four minutes of operation with one of the units. "Since Penicillium chrysogenum is representative of a wide range of fungi, we would anticipate similar results with many other fungi."
Micrococcus luteus (airborne bacteria) was reduced an average of 54.2% in four minutes of operation with an air cleaning unit. "since Micrococcus luteus is representative of a wide range of bacteria, we would anticipate similar results with many other bacteria."
Volatile Organic Compounds - Isobutlene was used as a typical volatile organic compound. "A reduction from 36.5% up to 53.7% was achieved within four minutes of operation with a air cleaning unit. "We would expect to obtain similar results from many other double-bonded hydrocarbon VOC's."
Three models to choose from
What is Ozone?
Ozone, a three-atom form of oxygen, is a normal trace element in the earth's atmosphere. Ozone is the strongest commercially available oxidizing agent. Because gaseous ozone is highly reactive, it readily oxidizes organic matter and has a variety of uses such as a bactericide and an algaecide. There are three stages in the life cycle of ozone: generation, oxidation, and decay. Its presence can be detected by its sweet odor even at low concentrations. More on Ozone
How is Ozone Produced?
1. Nature produces ozone by solar radiation ionizing oxygen in the atmosphere at high altitudes, in the arctic and over snow covered terrain. The outside air we breathe contains a small amount of ozone
2. Ozone may also be produced by electrical discharges. Nature creates ozone, which purifies the air, by electrical discharges or simply by air to air lightning and air to surface lightning.
3. Ozone is also formed when hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides react with each other in the presence of sunlight. Contributing to this method of ozone production are the following: automobiles, industrial emissions from smokestacks, oil wells, refineries, etc...When these chemicals form ozone by photosynthesis, the result is often a major component of smog. Thus ozone can be both an oxidant and an irritant depending upon its chemical makeup or its quantity and quality.
4. Ozone may also be produced by vacuum cleaners, copying machines, electric trains, some shop tools, electrostatic precipitation, other appliances and ozone generating devices.
Why Use Ozone?
Ozone is a form of oxygen that has been electrically energized. The energy makes ozone more chemically active than oxygen. Most pungent substances are described by chemists as being unsaturated. Unsaturated simply means their molecular structure is not closed; therefore, it will readily combine with oxygen. Ozone actually breaks down polluted molecules such as hydrocarbons into water vapor and carbon dioxide. An ozone generator doesn't hide or mask unpleasant aromas with perfume or chemicals; ozone will attack and destroy, by oxidation, the offending molecules.
Why Use Ozone for Air Cleaning?
Low level ozone (oxidation) is an excellent air purification method. Ozone or activated oxygen is an unstable three-part molecule of oxygen (O3). When ozone meets a pollutant in the air it attaches itself to the pollutant and changes it into harmless compound. Eventually, it will oxidize or neutralize (destroy) it. therefore, low level ozone is an excellent method of eliminating unpleasant odors in the air, destroying pollen and dust particles, and even killing bacteria that may be floating in the air. Activated oxygen also revitalizes and refreshes stale air often found in in refrigerators, homes and offices.
Ozone is the perfect answer to the global clean-water crisis. The US Food and Drug Administration and EPA found that ozone effectively destroys 99.9992 % of pathogens, including giardia and cryptosporidium. The American Water Works Association did research in 1991 that found ozone effectively neutralized viruses, bacteria, amoeba, protozoa and spores in municipal water supplies. At the Second International Symposium on Ozone Applications in 1997, WJ Masschelein, honorary president of the International Ozone Association, summarized some of ozone's other benefits as a water purifier:
"Ozone is now used...for taste and odor control, removal of iron manganese...biodegradability of dissolved organic substances, ability to cope with parasites refractory compounds like chlorinated pesticides." Ozone has no known toxicity. Meanwhile, certain government authorities would have the public believe exactly the opposite of the truth: that chlorine is safe and that ozone is a dangerous pollutant. Most major cities still do not ozonate their water, even more reason to take water purification into your own hands.
The Truth about Ozone
Nature causes ozonation to occur by releasing inert gases into the atmosphere and creating a corona around a central lightening bolt, then minerals in the air act as electrodes and ozone is created.
Ozone is the most powerful form of oxygen.
Ozone has three molecules of oxygen and therefore is known as triatomic oxygen.
Ozone is natural and organic.
Lightening creates ozone, as does sunshine. Ozone is what makes air fresh.
Ozone is the strongest natural bactericide, fungicide, and virucide known to man.
Ozone has been used in medicine since 1886.
Ozone disinfects open wounds, purifies necrotic tissue, inactivates protozoa, viruses and carcinomas in diseased cells.
Ozone has been proven to kill 100% of the viruses in donated blood samples.
Ozone is present in the smog in large cities. This ozone contributes significantly to a reduction of toxic hydrocarbons found in exhaust gases and smog by oxidizing them to carbon dioxide and water.
The ancient Hebrew word for Ozone means “Breath of God!”
What is Ionization?
The process of ionization is often referred to as the "thunderstorm effect". It is well known that prior to a thunderstorm, animals and even many humans feel nervous, jittery and irritable; however, after the storm there seems to be a feeling of calm. Both animals and humans experience this phenomena. Most people can't explain this renewed sense of well-being. However, there is a logical explanation.
The emotional ups & downs before and after a thunderstorm are caused by the amount of negative ions in the air around us. Prior to a thunderstorm there is a very high concentration of positive ions in the air. Positive ions are often pollutants such as dust, bacteria, pollen, chemicals, and fumes. The storm releases electrical discharges consisting of high concentrations of negative ions. Negative ions destroy many of these air pollutants and, therefore, give us a sense of well-being.
Ions At Work
Negative and Positive ions work together in a 60% (neg.) - 40% (pos.) ratio. Attracting pollutants and particles; and like tiny magnets - drop them out of the air we breathe.
Normal "fresh" air has a total ion concentration about 2,000-3,000 per cubic centimeter. Many environments are ion depleted with barely detectable levels of ionization.
Why do you need Ions?
For energy reasons, the modern home and office is tightly insulated. This may conserve energy, but it also traps pollution indoors. Hence, there tends to be a depletion of negative ions and a buildup of positive ions in the air. Consequently, the pollution smoke, mold spores, and bacteria contribute to the energy depletion of individuals who live or work in such environments. These conditions may also lead to fatigue, headaches and other illnesses.
By adding negative ions to indoor air, you are restoring the natural balance of ions and eliminating many of these pollutants. Consequently, people living and working in these environments should experience fewer headaches, less illness and have more energy left over at the end of the day. An improved sense of well-being can only contribute to their overall happiness and productivity.
