Haledyne Debuts Air Sanitizing Technology for Healthier Home
Traditional ceiling fan technology teams up with ultraviolet-C light energy for 99% germ reduction

“With Healthy Fan, the airborne health risks that exist in a home are greatly diminished, especially for more vulnerable populations like children and the elderly,” says Dr.
Healthy Fan works by circulating the air in a room, and trapping dust particles and allergens in a charged filter. Some germs, especially virus cells, are extremely tiny (<.3 microns) and, can therefore be suspended in air. These germs are the target of the Healthy Fan’s UV-C lights, which alter the DNA of germs, halting their ability to reproduce and killing them. UV-C light energy has been proven effective against salmonella, influenza, e-coli, staph, strep and even tuberculosis. The Healthy Fan can sanitize an average houseful of air every 15 minutes.
The germ-killing ability of UV-C energy is well-documented, and has been utilized for more than 50 years. However, its use in combination with traditional ceiling fan is the unique and crucial element that makes the Healthy Fan most effective in a home.
Scientific research has demonstrated that when room air is continually mixed by a ceiling fan, the effect of UV-C air sterilization is dramatically improved. A study published in PLoS Medicine in
In addition, a recent study conducted by researchers from the
Healthy Fan safely utilizes UV-C by controlling it to extend in a set circumference and within only 3 inches of the ceiling plane. A user is never directly able to view, or be in contact with, the UV-C emitter bulb, which is always shielded by the medallion cover. If the medallion cover is removed, a microswitch will inactivate the circuit and the bulbs will not be lit.
