Improving Indoor Air Quality with an Air Purifier
The air you breathe can have a dramatic and long-lasting impact on your health. Although your home’s air may seem relatively clean, the truth is that modern homes often suffer from indoor air quality that is far poorer than the air outside. This is because efforts to reduce air leaks and improve HVAC efficiency have eliminated air exchange with the outdoors, which allows chemicals, odors, particles, and microorganisms to build up and become trapped inside your home over time. While your HVAC system’s furnace filter is designed to screen out larger particles and keep your furnace and air conditioner clean, this filter is not up to the challenge of truly purifying your home’s air. Reme HALO air purifiers fill this gap by bringing the natural energy of the sun indoors to clean your home’s air for greater health all year long.
Potential Indoor Air Quality Concerns
There are many factors that affect the air quality in your home. Dirt, dust, pollen, and other environmental pollutants can easily enter your home with you through the door, then become trapped inside and circulate through the air via your HVAC system. Viruses, bacteria, and mold can also enter with family members, then thrive in the stable environment maintained by your heating and cooling appliances. Smoke and odors generated by cooking, smoking, and furnace combustion can also circulate indefinitely through your indoor air; pets are another common source of odors and airborne animal dander, even when care is taken to keep them clean and groomed. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) come from household materials such as varnishes, paints, cleaning solutions, and even some types of upholstery and carpeting. Many household products can release VOCs into your home’s air for days, weeks, or even years.
Improving Indoor Air Quality with Reme
Reme HALO air purifiers are a natural and reliable solution to many of the indoor air quality concerns in your home. UV light air purifiers emit ultraviolet light, which is found naturally in sunlight, and has a cleansing effect on the air. This energetic form of light can kill or destroy microorganisms and chemicals on contact, rendering them harmless and eliminating them from the air you breathe. The Reme HALO air purifier is easy to install—your HVAC service expert simply removes a small square of material from the ductwork above your air handler, into which the air purifier is inserted. Once in place, the UV light is activated and remains lit 24/7, treating the air inside your home each time your heating or cooling system activates. Over time, the UV light eliminates the buildup of allergens and other illness-causing microbes and particles in your air, while also breaking down odors for cleaner, fresher-smelling air. The air purifier can be checked during your normal preventive maintenance visits, and today’s UV lights are rated to last a minimum of one year, even while constantly activated. Installing a Reme HALO air purifier thus allows you to instantly enjoy cleaner, healthier indoor air without changing the way you heat or cool your home.
