In 1995 the founder of Enhance-It, LLC began researching the UV light
purification technology. At that time it was available only for hospitals
and commercial settings because of its cost. The first affordable, fully
certified residential UV air cleaner was developed in 1998.
In 1999 Enhance-It, LLC was founded as a marketing company oriented toward products that enhance the quality of
life. Hence the motto: Making Your Life Better.
At that time Enhance-It team started marketing the first UV Light Air Cleanser.
It soon became the number one selling residential UV air cleanser. Over
time the UV Light technology proved itself so fascinating and promising
that Enhance-It focused entirely on ultraviolet products.
Until 2002 Enhance-It specialized in residential UV products with emphasis on the American-Lights®
UV air cleaner (formerly Northern Lights UV Air Cleanser). In January 2002 a strategic partnership
with American Ultraviolet Company was formed and a full commercial
line of ultraviolet products was added to the catalog. The marketing
initiatives were broadened to encompass the entire spectrum of customers for
residential and commercial products.
In recent years the consumer awareness of UV Light Technology has increased tremendously and the
volume of business started taking overwhelming proportions so a new company - American Air & Water®, Inc
- was created in place of the privately owned Enhance-It, LLC. American Air & Water®, Inc. is focused on
the Germicidal UV technology and its applications in air, surface and water sterilization for residential,
commercial and industrial settings.
Over the past years American Air & Water has become a leading provider of UVGI air, surface and water purification solutions and
supplier of UVGI products. The UVC products represented by American Air & Water are at the cutting edge of the UV technology.
The Company’s proprietary UV air cleaners have been installed in homes and businesses across the USA and abroad.
American Air & Water is a government approved vendor and has delivered UVC products to Navy Vessels, Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) Emergency Operations Center and different educational facilities including the University of Virginia,
the University of Washington, the University of Kansas, and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
American Air & Water, Inc. is a member of IUVA and contributes to development and popularizing the UVGI Standards and Guidelines.
