Your home indoor air quality is something you may have never thought about before but should be something you evaluate every year. Poor indoor air quality can cause various health issues like headaches, nausea, skin irritations, difficulty breathing and more. HVAC manufacturers have been developing new technologies to help improve a home’s air quality over the past couple of decades, but many homes still do not have an air quality system.

Types of Air Filtration Systems
Did you know that the air quality outside of your home is naturally cleansed by the sun? It’s true. UV rays from the sun help to clean and purify the air outside. Once the outside air comes into your home, there is nothing to help clean it besides your air filter; unless you’ve invested in an aftermarket air quality system. UV light systems are readily available as an aftermarket add on and are often included in new HVAC system installs.
UV lights can be added to your ductwork and a-coil when air filters through your system. The air in your home circulates an average of 8x’s every hour. Having a UV light or other air filtration system in your HVAC system helps to make sure that germs and bacteria are removed every time the air circulates through.
Ozone generators are great at removing smells from the air. While some people prefer ozone generators, they are not always the best option. Some people are sensitive and develop headaches, chest pain and shortness of breath. There are other home indoor air quality systems that remove the odor and bacteria without the use of ozone.
New Generation of Indoor Air Quality
The Rheem Halo is the next generation of indoor air quality. It uses Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy technology to reach and purify every inch of your home’s air.
Cut down on sickness this winter. Hydroperoxides (which occur naturally in the environment) are also a part of the systems technology. It helps to deodorize and sanitize not just your home’s air, but also its surfaces. If you’d like more information on this specific system, just give us a call.
