Salon Equipment Questions
The following are frequently asked questions about Aerovex Systems products. If you don't see your question here or have questions about any of our products, please Contact us or call us at 1-800-288-2023.

Q: The One That Works: Is the air purifier easy to install?
YES! In fact, it is simple, and there is no installation required. Simply take the air purifier out of the box, removing the shipping brace, plug it in the electrical outlet and it is ready to use!

Q: The One That Works: Does the air purifier create cool airflow patterns?
No. The unique “fountain airflow” sends the clean air towards the ceiling, and will not change the temperature of the salon air.

Q: The One That Works: Will one unit purify all the air in the salon?
By determining the appropriate model for your salon, usually one unit is all that is required. For large salons with high ceilings and high levels of pollution, more than one unit may be required to maintain fresh air throughout the salon. Call us today for your free consultation 1-800-288-2023.

Q: The One That Works: Does it really work?
YES! “The One That Works” is the only air purifier designed specifically for nail salons. Our consultation will result in a recommendation for the appropriate model for your salon. When your customers walk into your salon there will be no appreciable difference between the fresh air outside and the fresh air inside your salon.

Q: The One That Works: Where should the air purifier be placed?
The Salon chemical vapors are heavier than air and tend to migrate towards the floor. That is why the purifier should be placed on the floor, in the center of the Salon. Or, up against the wall towards the center of the Salon. Do NOT place the purifier in the corner of the room.

Q: The One That Works: How economical is the machine?
Very. The High Speed uses 135 Watts, and the Low Speed uses 90 Watts.

Q: The One That Works: How often should I change the carbon in my “The One That Works” Air Purifier?
We recommend changing the carbon every 4 or 6 months to ensure optimal performance. If you have 3 nail technicians or under, and are not operating more than 8 hours a day, then you will need to change the carbon around every 6 months. If you have 3 or more nail tech’s and operate more than 8 hours a day, then we recommend you replace the carbon every 4 months.

Q: The One That Works: Does the air purifier take up a lot of space?
No, the air purifier is only 15” tall and has a 16.5” diameter. It is also very easy to move around with the 3-wheel mobile cart available.

Q: The One That Works: Are there expensive filters to buy and replace?
No, the outside dust filter is machine washable. Wash the dust filter approximately every 2 weeks or once per month. There are no filters or cartridges inside the unit to replace. Simply change the Activated Carbon at every 4 or 6 months (approximately 43 cents per day).

Q: The One That Works: Is the room air purifier noisy?
The room purifier has two speeds. The Low speed is very quiet, and is the standard setting. The High speed is louder and used for emergencies such as chemical spills and is used to clean the air quickly. On high speed the purifier sounds like an average residential fan.

Q: The One That Works: What are additional control measures that are available to maintain fresh air quality?
We also offer source capture ventilation units which capture salon dusts and chemicals vapors at the technicians breathing zone. In addition, we have special filters for your HVAC system which remove salon dusts and chemical vapors from salon’s HVAC systems.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: How can we prevent our staff's and clientele's overexposure to keratin hair smoothing formaldehyde?
As a founding member of the Professional Keratin Hair Smoothing Council, - http://www.pksc.org/ - Aerovex Systems is the leading authority on minimizing formaldehyde exposure during keratin hair smoothing services. We developed our Chemical Source Capture System specifically to protect the breathing zone of stylists and clients during keratin hair smoothing services, and to prevent overexposure to formaldehyde vapors and fumes. In addition to proper ventilation, our consultation will provide you with FACTS on where and how the spikes in formaldehyde exposure occur, and teach you important techniques developed to prevent inhalation exposure.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: How often is it necessary to change the filters?
We recommend changing the filters on a schedule every 4 or 6 months. Aerovex Systems recommends its Convenience Plan to schedule your filter shipments & changes. Typically, the filters should be changed after 120 hours of use. As a back up to remind you when its time to change the filters, our Healthy Air® hair chemical source capture system is equipped with an electronic control panel featuring our exclusive filter change indicator which will alert you to change the filters when necessary. We have taken the guess work out of the appropriate filter changing frequency, rather than waiting for the performance of the unit to diminish, like some manufacturers recommend to determine when to change the filters.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: What is the difference between Healthy Air® and other brand source capture systems?
Healthy Air® hair chemical source capture systems are built from the ground up specifically for hair stylists. Other manufacturers units were originally designed for welding, soldering or other industrial applications, and have not taken into consideration the unique design feature requirements of hair stylists. We have sound levels below conversational speech, easy filter changing which eliminates unit dis-assembly and avoids messy carbon module emptying & re-filling, an electronic control panel featuring a filter change indicator, clear capture hood with LED lighting, more suction (CFM) than any other salon source capture system. Patented Healthy Air® technology utilizing eHepa™ filtration holds and destroys microorganisms, loads slowly, and has less airflow restriction than standard Hepa filters. A high energy field enhances keratin hair smoothing formaldehyde vapor/fume and other hair chemical service vapor adsorption. And, the high energy field increases particle capture efficiency. eHepa™ vs. HEPA: Know the Difference http://www.healthyair.net/Pages/EHepaVsHepa.aspx

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: Is the chemical source capture system all I need to have proper keratin hair smoothing salon ventilation?
Aerovex Systems recommends taking a comprehensive "Three Zone Protection" approach towards proper keratin hair smoothing, and other hair chemical service salon ventilation. This includes use of our "The One That Works" salon room air purifier designed specifically to remove salon vapors/fumes/odors, including formaldehyde, not captured by the chemical source capture system,and replenishing the salon with a "fountain flow" of fresh air. We also recommend use of our "Dust Plus" HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) filters designed to specifically trap salon vapors/odors and dust, preventing them from entering the cold air returns and recirculating throughout the salon.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: How easy is the CSCS to assemble?
It's quite simple, and will take approx. 10 minutes to assemble. Easy to follow assembly instructions including video are provided.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: How close does the client's head does the capture hood need to be positioned?
The hood should be position within 1 ft. of the clients head during all three keratin hair smoothing sequences, including product application, blow drying and flat ironing.

Q: Nail Source Capture System: How often is it necessary to change the filters?
We recommend changing the filters on a schedule every 4 or 6 months. Aerovex Systems recommends its Convenience Plan to schedule your filter shipments & changes. Typically, the filters should be changed after 500 hours of use. As a back up to remind you when its time to change the filters, all Healthy Air® nails source capture systems are equipped with an electronic control panel featuring our exclusive filter change indicator which will alert you to change the filters when necessary. We have taken the guess work out of the appropriate filter changing frequency, rather than waiting for the performance of the unit to diminish, like some manufacturers recommend to determine when to change the filters.

Q: Nail Source Capture System: What is the difference between Healthy Air® and other brand source capture systems?
Healthy Air® nail source capture systems are built from the ground up specifically for nail technicians. Other manufacturers units were originally designed for welding, soldering or other industrial applications, and have not taken into consideration the unique design feature requirements of the professional nail care industry. We have sound levels below conversational speech, easy filter changing which eliminates unit disassembly and avoids messy carbon module emptying & re-filling, wheels and your choice of a round or rectangular capture hood provided as standard equipment at No Extra Charge, and the electronic control panel features a filter change indicator. Patented Healthy Air® technology utilizes eHepa™ filtration holds and destroys microorganisms, loads slowly, and has less airflow restriction than standard Hepa filters. A high energy field increases nail dust and other particle capture efficiency and enhances chemical vapor/odor adsorption. eHepa™ vs. HEPA: Know the Difference http://www.healthyair.net/Pages/EHepaVsHepa.aspx

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: If more than one keratin hair smoothing treatment is being done at the same time, do we need a CSCS for each cli
Yes, the CSCS is designed to be used with one client. Multiple keratin smoothing treatments can be provided safely at the same time if each stylist is properly using a CSCS.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: How do I know when it's time to change the filters?
Aerovex Systems Filter Change Convenience Plan

Q: Nail Source Capture System: Is the unit noisy?
The sound level is quiet and below conversational speech ( Low speed - 51 dBa, Medium speed - 53 dBa, High speed - 56 dBa). As a comparison, conversational speech is 60 dBa. We have made the low sound level a priority in the design of our unit. Other manufacturer's sound levels approach 60 dBa, and nail techs are then required to raise their voices to carry on a conversation with their client when using. There is no need to equip our unit with an exhaust silencer as some manufacturers resort to as a means to quiet down their units originally designed for other heavy industrial applications. Some manufacturers don't provide you with their unit's noise levels, or if they do, they only indicate levels when operating on low speed.

Q: Nail Source Capture System: Is a source capture system all I need to have proper salon ventilation?
New building code regulations require source capture systems to be provided at each nail station to protect the breathing zone of the nail technician. This requirement must be met or the salon will not be allowed to open, per the International Building Code, (IMC Dec. 2012). Aerovex Systems recommends taking a comprehensive "Three Zone Protection" approach towards proper salon ventilation. This includes use of our "The One That Works" salon room air purifier designed specifically to remove nail vapors/odors and dust not captured by the source capture system,and replenishing the salon with a "fountain flow" of fresh air. We also recommend use of our "Dust Plus" HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) filters designed to specifically trap nail salon vapors/odors and dust, preventing them from entering the cold air returns and recirculating throughout the salon.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: Are the filters easy to change?
Yes, we've designed the unit to all simple filter changing. No unit disassembly or messy carbon module refilling is necessary. Sylists love our easy plug & play filter changing method.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: Are the filters expensive?
Our Filter Change Convenience Plan price for change of the unit's three filters is only $158

Q: Nail Source Capture System: How should I dispose of the used activated carbon filter?
Other manufacturers tell you it depends upon the composition of the chemical contaminants, or only recommend for you to follow local and state regulations. We provide you with a prepaid shipping container and label for you to return the used carbon filter to our carbon recycling & re-activation facility, rather than allowing chemically saturated carbon to end up in and potentially contaminating a landfill.

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: Are there color options?
The CSCS is available both in black and white

Q: Hair Chemical Source Capture System: Can the CSCS be used for other hair chemical services?
Yes! , minimize chemical inhalation during all hair chemical services including color, bleach, permanent waves, hair removal, and even hair spray.
