Ductless systems have always been more energy efficient than central forced-air systems. In fact, distribution energy loss in typical forced air systems has been estimated to be as high as 40%, while estimates for energy loss in ductless systems range from 1% to 5%. While typical systems generally cap out at 18 SEER, Cooper&Hunter ductless systems, most of which are ENERGY STAR qualified, can achieve up to 23 SEER, greatly reducing utility bills. Additionally, since the cooling and heating of indoor zones can be managed independently, less energy is wasted in unoccupied spaces. Thanks to their operational efficiency and zoning capabilities, ductless mini splits waste less energy overall and, thus, have a smaller carbon footprint. Furthermore, C&H systems use R410A refrigerant, an eco-friendly option that doesn't deplete the ozone layer.
The Cold Plasma filtration system actively destroys the protein envelope of bacteria and viruses and converts the radicals in water and oxygen, eliminating the need for other types of filtration. The system forms a strong, directional, volume flow of charged particles and free electrons, which covers the entire volume of the room, without throwing dust, nicotine, pollen and other particles on the ceiling and walls. The principle of Cold plasma filters is based on the interaction of multiple electromagnetic paths, a constructive combination of which creates hydroxide ion (HO2-) or hydroxide plasma. This active particle reacts with the protein membrane of bacteria and viruses and destroys it to form water. Similarly, the structure breaks down chemical compounds (toluene, acetaldehyde, formaldehyde), as well as odors and allergens.
In addition to destroying bacteria, the filter blocks and removes harmful chemical compounds and acts as a purifier of odors and gases. The solid catalyst of titanium dioxide, incurred in the form of Nano-sized particles, has strong oxidizing properties. When harmful chemical compounds, such as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, etc., are exposed to light, they are rapidly decomposed into harmless components. The filter is both reusable and environmental-friendly
Catechin is a natural substance, contained in tea leaves, that has antibacterial effects. The application of catechin to the air filter is a special feature of C&H technology, which significantly increases the efficiency of cleaning the filter itself. It inhibits bacterial growth and kills cancer-causing substances, such as staphylococcus, streptococcus, salmonella and more, with an efficiency of 95%.
Antibacterial coating helps to destroy bacteria, viruses, staphylococci, and fungi, while inhibiting the proliferation of these microorganisms on the filter. The cellular structure of the filter can capture microscopic particles with a size as miniscule as 0.1 microns, With this filter, an impressive purification degree of 95% can be achieved.
The filter is made of activated carbon of a micro-cellular structure, which absorbs harmful gases, such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide, as well as the unpleasant odors associated with them. The filter has such features as high-speed and high absorptive capacity.
This filter is produced from a polymer of a permanent magnet, which enables it to pick up even the smallest particles of dust and smoke. Electret is a dielectric material that preserves the polarized state long after the external influence, which leads to the polarization (or charge) of the insulator, and creating a quasi-constant electric field. The filter effectively delays the small particles of dust, dust mites, tobacco smoke, and animal hair that cause allergic reactions in humans. The filter does not require frequent replacement as electret effects last up to 5 years.
