According to the EPA, Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, and maybe more over the past year, so why would we not emphasize the importance of the air we are breathing inside our homes, workplaces, and schools? September 7th is the International Day of Clean Air, and we want to do our part to help you take a breath of fresh air inside your home.
Studies have shown that Indoor Air Quality can reduce respiratory illness by up to 76% by balancing humidity, filtering unwanted particles/contaminants, and improving air circulation, so how do homeowners practically improve the air quality inside their homes?
First and foremost, it’s important to know where the air pollutants could be coming from. Common causes are pollen, dust, pet dander, chemicals from cleaning products or air fresheners, mold, smoke, building material byproducts (VOCs), and many others. So, even if you are keeping your home clean, there are particles floating through the air that affect your indoor air quality. In fact, the EPA has found that indoor air pollutants are often 2-5 times worse than outdoor air pollutants.
Additionally, infiltration, air that flows through the home through openings like cracks in between doors and windows, can also have an effect on your home’s indoor air quality. It’s important to have the right amount of ventilation so that your air can be as fresh and clean as possible.
Our expert HVAC technicians can help you evaluate your home or office’s indoor air quality and make recommendations on products that can help keep your air clean all year long. We are huge fans of products like the REME HALO In-Duct Air Purifier.
When installed into the supply plenum of your HVAC system’s air ducts, the REME HALO produces and distributes Hydro-Peroxide plasma — a naturally occurring gas in the earth’s atmosphere that cleans air — through the air handler, the ductwork, and into your conditioned living spaces. Unlike other indoor air quality devices, which are more passive and require pollutants to pass through them for purification or filtration, the REME HALO actively purifies pollutants at the source.
The REME HALO keeps the air in your home clean by eliminating air-borne particles like dust, pollen and dander— killing up to 99% of the bacteria, viruses, and mold in your home. In fact, the REME HALO reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time they reach three feet from the source- making this the perfect solution for any home, office, or classroom.
The REME HALO provides whole-home and building purification and integrates easily into your existing HVAC system. If you’re ready to breathe cleaner air in your home or office, give our team a call today for an indoor air quality assessment. And don’t forget, replacing your air filters and cleaning your ducts can also help improve the air quality in your home!
