According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Common pollutants include bacteria, viruses, spores, pet dander, pollen, dust, and volatile organic compounds. The EPA recommends increasing ventilation, removing sources of pollution, and using air cleaners to keep your indoor air clean. Several indoor air quality products work with your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, including ultraviolet lights that neutralize biological contaminants.
UV Air Purification
The air circulating through your home or business contains impurities and pollutants. However, the HVAC filter does not capture all the pollutants. Small particulates and biological microorganisms can bypass filters and enter ducts and living spaces.
Ultraviolet air purifiers deactivate biological contaminants. UV air purification devices are placed within the ducts downstream of the air filter and upstream of the cooling coil to prevent pathogen growth inside the ducts. UV-C wavelengths destroy pathogen DNA and keep microbes from replicating and growing.
Most UV in-duct air purification devices produce ozone, a gas that can cause environmental and health problems. In contrast, the REME-LED® in-duct air purifier does not produce ozone.
REME-LED technology builds on the benefits of REME HALO® air purifiers. Studies show that gaseous hydrogen peroxide can inactivate airborne microbes. Hydrogen peroxide naturally occurs in the earth’s atmosphere when water vapor, oxygen, and energy combine. When airborne hydrogen peroxide molecules meet pollutants, they destroy the pollutant and revert to hydrogen and oxygen.
The REME-LED® in-duct air purifier combines high-intensity LED light energy with a hydrated catalyst to create hydrogen peroxide molecules that are dispersed throughout the living space to destroy pollutants in the air and on surfaces. The technology is certified by the California Air Resources Board as ozone-free. Other features include:
- Longer product life
- Improved energy efficiency
- Replaceable LED module
- Turns on and off in synch with your HVAC system
- Reduces VOCs, odors, and particulates
