So how effective is this Air Purifier?

Not to scare you but this years flu shot is aimed at attacking 4 different strains of the flu virus. In years past it has been made for 3 different strains. Yep, the CDC is planning on fighting all 4 in the US. You can read all about that here. The good news is that it’s not too late to get your Air Purifier installed. When installed, it kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold, and viruses. It reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach 3 feet! AND.. the new zinc ions kill 99% of viruses on surfaces. The Air Purifiers are approved by hospitals to fight infectious disease with a 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA), approved by the US Military for mold reduction in field hospitals, and approved by the USDA, FSIS, and FDA for use in food processing plants. (Whew that is a lot of abbreviations!) If we lost you there for a minute- all of that means that this thing works and a lot of big important people recognize that.

What is the REME HALO Home Air Purifier?

The REME HALO Whole Home In-Duct Air Purifier is the next generation of indoor air quality. It was invented to recreate nature’s own air purification system and uses Hydro-Peroxide Plasma to eliminate dust, dander, germs and viruses. You can read all of the technical science here but we will share just a bit of its amazingness also. Normally, your HVAC system circulates air and it is your filter’s job to grab all those dust, dander, germs and virus particles. When a REME HALO system installed there are cells of Hydro-Peroxide Plasma installed that circulate within the air. (If that sounds scary- don’t worry. This plasma is a variation of Hydrogen Peroxide. Remember the stuff we pour on a cut or scrape? The plasma is another version of that with the same cleansing properties.) This plasma is ionized which means that it wants to grab and connect to all the gunk floating around in your air. When they grab onto the dust, dander, germs, viruses etc they make them a much larger sized molecule. The larger size molecules can then easily be trapped in your existing filter system as they flow through your house. This means they are no longer floating around for you to breathe in! More icing on the cake is that this applies to the surfaces in your home also. This plasma is also moving throughout your home as the air flows and grabbing the yuck that sits on furniture and other surfaces. It then removes the germs and viruses limiting you and your families contact with it.
