What You Need to Know about Whole-home Air Purification Systems

Germs are present in our air year round, particularly more so in the flu season. Cold and flu illnesses are costly and inconvenient, and harmful for young children and the elderly population. While exposure to these germs are an unfortunate part of everyday life, there are steps you can take to make your personal environment healthier. This is why more people are looking into home purification systems to help eradicate germs from living spaces.

You may have seen purification systems at your local store and have wondered if those might be effective in eliminating germs, bacteria, viruses, odors, and pollutants from the air in your home. Realistically, these purification systems can generally only cover a relatively small area. While perfect for a small bedroom or home office, they simply don't work to cover larger living spaces or to protect each member of your home. Many homeowners are turning to whole-home solutions instead to keep their families and houseguests healthy.

PASSIVE VS. ACTIVE PURIFICATION SYSTEMS

To help you understand the main difference between the various kinds of whole-home systems, we've grouped them into two types: active and passive. Both of these types of purification systems work with your existing HVAC system, utilizing your home's blower motor and ductwork to purify the air in your home. However, they work in two very different ways.

Passive systems generally wait for the air to come to them. Passive systems are those where you either install UV lights or a 13-rated MRV HEPA filter on your system. Here's how they work.

HEPA FILTER: PASSIVE

A HEPA filter works just like your standard filter, only it's rated higher to collect and stop much finer particulates from being circulated through your air. This is a relatively inexpensive way to remove some of those airborne toxins like mold, germs, and viruses. However, there is a catch to this method. (Get it, catch? Like, catching particles?) While the tight, dense weave of a HEPA filter is perfect for catching most of the fine particles in the air, it can also restrict airflow. This forces your HVAC system to work harder, and actually makes your system less efficient and could be contributing to early system breakdowns. So, for the money you could be saving on this purification solution, it could potentially cost you big down the line.

UV LIGHT: PASSIVE

Another alternative that purifies the air in a passive way is a UV light that attaches to the inside of your HVAC blower. When the air moves past the UV light, the light kills the germs, viruses, bacteria, mold, volatile organic compounds, odors, etc. that might be floating in the air. But, like any HVAC system-mounted passive purification solution, this also has a downside. Because of where it sits inside your system, there's no guarantee that the UV light will be able to clean all the air in your home. It's dependent on the air that passes over the light for effectiveness. So, while this can be an effective solution, there are no guarantees that it actually can cover the whole home or assure that every harmful particle will pass over the UV light.

REME HALO: ACTIVE

Rather than sitting and waiting for the pollutants to come through the system, active systems will actually go after pollutants in the air and on the surfaces of your home. An active purification system like the Reme-Halo attaches to the blower of your HVAC unit, and as the air passes over the Reme-Halo device, it sends ionized hydroperoxides into the home on a search and destroy mission.

When these naturally-occurring hydroperoxides disperse through the air and settle on the surfaces of your home, they attach to particulates, pollutants, volatile organic compounds (cleaning products, chemical odors), smoke, mold, bacteria, and viruses, and change the pollutant's chemical makeup. Through a process called cell lysing, these friendly oxidizers revert toxins back to harmless oxygen and hydrogen. Research on this process is extensive and there are no known health risks to these hydroperoxides, which have existed naturally in our outside air for over 3.5 billion years.

While this system is really effective, there are a few downsides that mainly come upfront. In order to purchase a Reme-Halo system, you have to go through a company that is a certified dealer and then have a licensed HVAC technician install it on your HVAC unit. Purchase and installation can be costly; however, they also come new with a five-year manufacturer warranty and can help keep your home safe from germs for years to come.

Dan and his crew were amazing! It was a pretty big job to replace the water main but they fixed it like it was something they do every day. They did not go over the price quoted and they were friendly and kind on top of it. They cleaned up any messes inside and out before they left and took extra special care to save my yard, even though they had to dig a big hole in the middle of it. I would recommend them to anyone.

Any Hour is so great! My furnace needed fixing, and my technician helped me understand everything that was wrong, answered all of my questions, and even let me watch everything. He explained all of my choices and never pressured me into anything. I ended up choosing to replace my 23-year-old furnace & A/C all at once. The whole process was excellent, and they even retro-applied the better deal from a previous month. The installation was easy, all the technicians were very kind and helpful. William & Enos installed both a furnace and A/C, and did a very thorough job, including replacing the wire to the breaker box, replacing the wire to the thermostat, and bringing everything up to code. I appreciate their honesty, dependability, and convenience. Highly recommended.

I have used Any Hour Services twice now for electrical and heating repair. These service experts are great! They took time with my elderly parents and went above and beyond getting our problems fixed. They are very polite, knowledgeable and professional. Todd was our technician this time and he made me feel like I called the perfect person to help my parents. He was out on Saturday night trying to help get the furnace going and the part wasn't available until Monday morning but he was there very first thing and had it repaired within 15 minutes. He went above and beyond to make sure they had heat the very first minute possible. Thank you! I appreciate the kindness and great work and will call them anytime I need help.

Thank you, Frank! Honest, extremely fair pricing, and knowledgeable. I actually ended up having something fixed that I didn't even know needed fixing and that could've caused far bigger problems. Some of the other issues that we've had with our plumbing were probably due to this one issue being caught.

Mike came by to take a look at my furnace that had quit last week. I had him check my water tank as well since I couldn’t get the pilot light to start. After doing some initial tests he told me the gas levels were low. I wondered aloud if the gas company may have turned off the wrong meter when my neighbors moved from the townhome last week. Mike went out to find the gas meters and said one was turned off. So he went back up into the attic where the furnace was and checked the gas intake and confirmed our suspicions. I didn’t think mistakes like that happened anymore. Mike was very helpful and suggested a tune up would be a good idea once the gas was back on!
