How Does the REME HALO Air Purification System Work?
Most Americans spend at least 90% of their time indoors. You’ll spend the majority of that time in your home. You could be shocked to learn that the air in your Palm Desert, CA, home is two to five times more polluted than the outdoor air. When most people think of air pollution, they think of soot, smog and chemicals from factory smokestacks. Your home’s air may contain higher concentrations and a greater variety of particulates. A whole-home air purifier is a smart investment. It removes pollutants from your home’s air so that you can breathe easier and feel better. Read on to learn more about the REME HALO air purification system and how it works.
What the REME HALO Air Purifier Is
The REME HALO air purification system is a whole-home air cleaner. It fits into the supply plenum of your central heating and air conditioning system’s ducts. This air purifier makes use of proprietary reflective electromagnetic energy technology. The unit also contains an ionizer. It turns on with each heating or cooling cycle. The system requires 24 volts or 17 watts of power, which is less than the electricity use of a typical light bulb. It’s wired into the same circuitry as your air handler. When your thermostat triggers a heating or cooling cycle, the REME HALO air purifier will turn on at the same time and stay on for the duration of the HVAC cycle.
How the REME HALO Air Purifier Works
When your thermostat triggers a heating or cooling cycle, the REME HALO air purifier turns on. The in-duct air purifier produces a low level of airborne hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is a natural compound that is commonly found in nature. You probably have a bottle of it in your cabinet for cleaning wounds or gargling in your mouth. During the heating or cooling cycle, the air purifier sweeps through your home’s ducts and releases hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is a disinfectant. Any pollutant that encounters it will be deactivated.
At the same time the unit releases hydrogen peroxide, its ionizer also turns on. The ionizer creates ions that make particles stick together. The larger, sticky particles are big enough to be trapped by your HVAC system’s air filter. You’ll need to continue cleaning or replacing your HVAC air filter once each month after installing the REME HALO air purifier.
Benefits of Using the REME HALO
There are many benefits of using the REME HALO air purifier. The ionizing function removes more than 99% of the dust, dander, pollen and spores floating through your home’s air. You’ll breathe easier and have fewer allergy or asthma symptoms when these triggers are removed. The REME HALO also kills up to 99% of bacteria, viruses and other germs. It removes almost all of the germs released in a cough or sneeze cloud. If one person in your home has a cold or the flu, using the REME HALO air purification system reduces the risk of those germs spreading to other members of your household. In addition, the zinc ions kill 99% of the viruses that settle onto surfaces in your home.
The REME HALO fits into your ducts, so no additional space is required for the unit. The system is quiet, so you won’t even notice that it’s running. Hydrogen peroxide has no odor. The unit’s power requirement will not make much of an impact on your monthly electricity bills.
When to Consider Installing a REME HALO Air Purifier
If someone with allergies or asthma lives in your home, the REME HALO air purifier could reduce their symptoms. If someone with a chronic breathing problem lives it in your home, it will also benefit them. People who want to reduce their risk of illness or simply enjoy a cleaner, fresher home should consider installing one of these systems.
