While whole house fans handle cooling and provide excellent ventilation, many homeowners are turning to whole-house air purification solutions to enhance the purity of the air in their living spaces. These remedies which attack indoor air pollutants work through your existing heating and cooling systems. The indoor air quality specialists at REE Mechanical rely on several different technologies for air purification. While they work in different ways, all are effective ways to improve your Southern California home’s indoor air quality.
Air Purification Through Ionization
The iWave-R Air Purifier uses electrically charged ions to purify the supply air in your ductwork. This device uses electricity to charge both positive and negative ions which scrub the air of indoor pollutants. The ionization process cleans your home’s air of these unhealthy substances without any unhealthy by-products:
Cooking and pet odors
VOCs and other particles
The iWave-R is simple to add to an existing air conditioning unit and requires no cleaning, filter changes or maintenance.
Active Air Cleaning Throughout the Home
Another new technology uses an entirely different process to purify your home’s air. The REME HALO® In-Duct Air Purifier was designed to combat “sick building” syndrome using hydro-peroxide plasma that removes pollutants from the air. REME stands for Reflective Electro-Magnetic Energy technology which uses electricity to create the Hydro-Peroxide plasma. This plasma is distributed through your home’s air handler, through the duct system and into the conditioned living space. The difference with this air purifying system is that the plasma is distributed throughout the house to actively attack pollutants, gases, allergens and particulates at their source. The plasma also causes particles and pollutants to stick together, making your systems’ filters more effective.
UV Air Purification
Ultraviolet (UV) light purification is a proven technology that purifies the air of bacteria to help protect your family from airborne diseases. For babies, seniors and anyone that may be vulnerable to airborne bacteria, UV modules from Sterilair are a great solution. These light modules are installed within the ductwork of your heating and cooling systems to kill bacteria through exposure to UV light. Our factory-trained technicians can determine the best location within your HVAC ductwork to provide the most effective protection from bacteria.
Boosting Air Filtration Improves Indoor Air Quality
Often we can improve indoor air quality very easily by boosting the effectiveness of your air conditioning or furnace filters. The air filters that slide into your HVAC system are rated using a MERV scale, which stands for minimum efficiency reporting value. Filters with MERV ratings higher than 10 perform the best for capturing dust and particles before it enters your home’s indoor air.
Should My Home Have HEPA Filtration?
HEPA filtration systems use an electrostatic charge to collect allergens, bacteria and other pollutants to prevent them from flowing into your home’s living areas. For maximum effectiveness, HEPA filtration can be incorporated into your home’s heating and cooling units. If you have family members with allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems, HEPA filters can provide welcome relief from these indoor air pollutants.
