  • iWAVE DEVICES have been installed in the ductwork of all our heat/air units. As air flows past these devices, positive and negative ions are emitted.  Their presence purifies the air, killing mold, bacteria, and viruses. This ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke, static electricity, and helps control odors. We are proud to give people in attendance this extra means of protection.
