Indoor air pollution is comprised of many types of contaminates: from visible dust and pollen; to microbes, odors, and VOCs*
No single technology can reduce air contamination in the many forms and sizes in which it exists.

Here’s the best news: you won’t have to worry about monitoring and maintaining this system on your own.  With regular air conditioning system tune ups, our friendly team will make sure your Solaris Ultravation air purification system is performing at 100% giving you peace of mind that your family is breathing the cleanest air possible inside your home.

How Solaris Ultravation Whole Home Air Purification Systems Work:

Solaris Air Purification Systems are built into your home’s AC system. The system is composed of:

  • Specialized Whole Home Air Filter
  • Air Ionizer Unit
  • Carbon-Capture Unit
  • Electronic Air Purification Module
  • Germicidal UV Light System To Kill Bacteria and Viruses
  • Sophisticated System Control Module That Controls All Of These Componants

Solaris IAQ components are a unique set of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) improvement products, each focused on a specific type of indoor air pollution. While they can operate independently, they are also designed to work as a group creating an efficient, integrated whole house indoor air quality improvement system that not only makes the air genuinely fresher and healthier top to bottom, they can at the same time reduce the cost of cooling and heating the air in your home.

*VOCs are Volatile Organic Compounds. They range from toxic fumes (like exhaust and pool odors) to everyday odors from cooking and cleaning — as well as pet, bathroom, laundry, and other musty, unpleasant smells.

Air & Plumbing Today can install these air scrubber untis into your existing AC unit or into a brand new AC unit that’s installed by our team. Call 210-519-5959 and book your free estimate today.


IAQ System Control Center
For convenience and efficiency, a Solaris IAQ system is powered and monitored by a single power module. This single connection to available power provides proper energy to each component. It also tells you the status of any UV lamps in the system.

Needlepoint Bipolar Air Ionizer
As the air enters the HVAC system ions are added that react with nano-particulates. The ions cause these normally un-filterable particles to attract and group together. Placing ionization just “upstream” of the filter enables it to capture particles much smaller than was previously possible.

Hypo-allergenic filtration
Filtration is fundamental to cleaning the air. Ultravation Solaris filter fibers are hypoallergenic, high capacity, and high efficiency throughout their lifespan for practical, effective air cleaning with minimized filter changes and air flow resistance.

Add multiple germicidal UV lights
Add UV-C lights as needed to disinfect HVAC coil, drain pan and other surfaces. A clean coil maximizes cooling efficiency which saves energy. UV-C light also kills bacteria and viruses in HVAC airstream.

Add PCO Air Purification
Installed after the cooling coil, a Solaris PCO air purifier breaks down odors, toxic gases and VOCs. It also kills bacteria and viruses circulating through the HVAC system. Two PCO air purifier models available: active/adjustable or carbon-capture.

Solaris filtration is highly effective yet very practical
High efficiency is maintained over the life of the filter.
They last up to a full year.
Very low maintenance unlike other designs such as electronic filters that need frequent cleaning.
They are “easy” on the HVAC blower due to their layered design – helping keep your electric bill minimized (see ratings below).
High efficiency filtration means cleaner air with minimized air flow resistance
Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) is the industry standardized performance rating system for particulate capture and pressure drop, or air flow resistance.
Solaris’ MERV 11 rated filters achieve this particulate capture performance with the same low air resistance of a standard MERV 8 filter.
Solaris’ MERV 13 rated filters achieve this higher particulate capture performance with the same air resistance of a typical MERV 11 filter.


Solaris Air Purification Systems use a “MERV 13 filter” endorsed by ASHRAE, “The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.” ASHRAE has endorsed and recommended the use of MERV 13 filtration as one method of minimizing the spread of bacteria and viruses. 

Solaris MERV 13 filters offer this level of performance for residences and office environments, with the added benefit of very low air flow restriction— equally that of the more standard MERV 11.


Solaris 5″ pleated MERV 13 filters start with high efficiency and maintain it evenly over the life of the filter, reducing maintenance.  In other words, these filters can capture a LOT of particles including dust, pet dander, tobacco smoke, human skin and hair particles, pollen, etc. and keep air flowing at a high rate and not “choke” your air conditioning system.  This makes sure that your AC system can operate efficiently and not cost you more money on energy.

SOLARIS® Needlepoint Bipolar Air Ionizer

This electronic device uses electric charge, similar to static electricity to capture and trap particles in the air so that your family won’t have to breathe them in.  You can’t feel this ion charge like you can feel a static charge at all.  But it’s like a vacuum cleaner for particles…. This Solaris Air Ionizer is an electronic air cleaner that  reduces ultra-fine particulates and freshens the indoor air! 

The Solaris Air ionizer is an electronic air cleaner that reduces ultra-fine particulates and freshens the air by breaking down odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemical/molecular contamination. It captures these micro-particles so that you don’t breathe them in.

The Solaris Ionizer makes it possible to remove the microscopic particles known as nano-particulates that would otherwise pass through filtration. These are particles so small and light they remain suspended in air, are able to evade normal breathing defenses and can enter into the lungs and in some cases the bloodstream. When installed just before your Solaris MERV 13 air filter, the microscopic particles are drawn into the HVAC system and this electronic ionizer statically charges the partiles causing large groups of them to gather and be captured in the nearby filter.

What types of particles are trapped by the Solaris Air Ionizer?

  • Tobacco smoke
  • Smog from outdoor air pollution
  • ultra-fine atmospheric dust
  • Coal soot from candles you’ve been burning inside your home
  • Smoke residue from barbequing or grilling outside
  • Particle residue from interior kitchen cooking
  • Common household odors from cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry, vacuuming, dusting
  • Home improvement projects
  • Very fine suspended dust particles
  • Airborne rubber particles from tires on nearbyhighways and roads
  • Agricultural activity including your neighbors fertilizing their lawns
  • Pest control activity in the air from your own neightborhood
  • Road  construction / demolition activity near your home
  • Nano-particles found in everyday items such as cosmetics, hair spray, deoderant, etc.

Additional benefits of the Solaris Micro-Particulate Air Ionizer

  • Contributes to the reduction of microbes, allergens, and filter disinfection (when installed adjacent to a filter)
  • Enhances the filter’s effectiveness and efficiency
  • Maintenance free, no parts to replace
  • Part of your Solaris Whole House Component IAQ system
  • Lifetime system warranty


See that triangle shaped thingy? Those are your AC system coils.  That is where the refrigerant from your AC system flows through to creates the cold temperature that comes through your AC vents. There’s a lot of moisture on these coils – similar to how moisture collects on a cold Dr. Pepper can.  Moisture on these cold, wet AC coils can collect bacteria and viruses over time.  The UV lights from the Solaris system kill bacteria and viruses.  Have you ever had a really bad sunburn?  Yes kind of like that but imagine that the sun was 100X more powerful – that’s what these UV lights do to bacteria and Viruses. These UV lights disinfect coils to reduce bio-growth and increase HVAC efficiency – in other words, you wone get a layer of slimy bacteria on your coils, they’ll stay much cleaner as time goes by.  These germicidal UV lights are a great way to continuously sterilize your home’s AC cooling coils, drain pans, blower, and other wet surfaces, keeping them free of bio-growth.  Solaris UV lights are much higher quality than other brands as they will:

  • prevent the HVAC system from becoming a source of allergies or viruses
  • keep your AC coils clean to maximize HVAC efficiency and save energy
  • provide 40% more UV intensity without increased power consumption
  • last up to 18,000 hours, twice as long as typical UV lamps
  • be a big part of providing a healthier environment for your family and help them suffer less from allergies or asthma

SOLARIS® IAQ System Control Center

The ultimate in IAQ system flexibility and convenience!
A complete Indoor Air Quality System…One central control center!

This is the “brain” of the whole Solaris Air Purification System! Convenience, efficient operation, smart monitoring to help your Air & Plumbing Today technician monitor how your system is working.  It has indicators that show if a companant is faulty so it can be maintained and working at 100% capacity all the time!

The best way to effectively keep the air in your home cleaner, fresher, and healthier from top-to-bottom is to use devices that specialize in the various types of contamination found in household air. Using the HVAC system to collect air to be purified and to distribute the purified air makes great sense! So we design and manufacture IAQ products that excel in each category and place them strategically in the HVAC airstream. And, to add convenience and efficiency, Solaris IAQ products integrate into a centrally-powered and monitored IAQ system that operates completely unobtrusively and prevents the HVAC system itself from becoming a generator of contamination.

The Solaris IAQ component control center is the central power and status monitor for a Solaris integrated IAQ system. It is flexible for customized effectiveness and provides a central control panel for system-wide UV lamp status.

  • Versatile for connecting the right combination of IAQ components
  • Readily installs in a convenient location for viewing status. Operates on a standard 110VAC outlet or auto-senses up to 277VAC
  • Includes visual and audible alarms that indicate UV lamp operational status and to remind our technicians when replacements are required

The Solaris® IAQ System Control Center SLX-POWERPRO-4LV powers and monitors these IAQ components.
