What is Gelair™?
Gelair™ Air-conditioning Blocks are a biodegradable gel containing tea tree oil. When the air conditioning unit operates normally, the gel vaporises in the air, releasing the tea tree oil. The tea tree oil controls the mould and bacteria in the air handling units, ducts and rooms serviced by the air-conditioner.
Gelair™ Solution is a concentrated solubilised solution of tea tree oil. Mixed with other cleaning agents, this product is great for cleaning cooling coils in air handling units, ducts and other contaminated surfaces.
How does Gelair™ work?
The high air flow from the air-conditioning unit runs over the surface of the GelairTM block, releasing tea tree oil into the air. Harmful micro-organisms are destroyed when the tea tree oil comes into contact with it. Tea tree oil effectively targets a wide range of micro-organisms, making it the ideal essential oil for the job. Gelair™ works by breaking the micro-organism's cell membrane, destroying it in the process.
How much do I use?
As long as you correctly place the block, it will last about thirty days. To choose the right sized block for the space your air-conditioner services, view http://www.gelair.com.au/.
Is it safe?
Whether natural or synthetic, high doses of chemicals can cause health problems. Gelair™ Air-conditioning Blocks release only small quantities of tea tree oil over a long period of time, making it a safe and environmentally friendly solution. Most people consider tea tree oil's low odour to be "fresh" and "clean".
If you use Gelair™ as directed, it will not damage your health. We recommend storing Gelair™ safely away from children as it is toxic if ingested.
How can I tell if it's working?
When you first insert your Gelair™ block, you will notice a faint smell of tea tree oil. The oil is beginning to do its job, controlling the mould and bacteria in your system. Signs your air is becoming cleaner include an improved odour and a decrease in symptoms caused by allergic reactions. The full effects of Gelair™ won't happen overnight- but it will happen soon!
