A few weeks ago we touched on a few quick, simple ways to improve the indoor air quality in your Lowcountry home, with one of those ways being the installation of a whole-home air purifier.
In this week’s post we’re going to dig into a little more detail on air purifying technology, the latest innovations in the indoor air quality industry and give you a quick rundown on the HALO-LED model by RGF Environmental Group.
Different Types Of Air Purifiers: Passive vs. Active
Air purifiers generally come in two different styles: active or passive.
Passive air purifying technology you’ll probably be much more familiar with, with the primary example being your home’s air filter in your HVAC system.
In today’s post, though, we’ll be focusing on active air purifying technologies. The “active” part of this technology refers to the air purifier using more advanced technology to go on the offensive — in a sense — against indoor air pollutants.
Active air purifiers use a few different types of technology to remove particles from the air, with ionizers and ozone generators being some of the more commonly used types.
Ozone vs. Ionizing Air Filters
Ozone generators have many industrial and commercial air and water cleaning applications, as they create ozone molecules that interact with air pollutants, producing a chemical reaction which neutralizes those pollutants.
However, with ozone also coming with certain health risks, manufacturers and consumers tend to lean toward ionizing air purifiers.
Ionizing air purifiers use technology to charge the particles in the air, making them stick to nearby surfaces or specialized plates which then neutralize them via a variety of methods.
What Makes The HALO-LED Model Different
Even though ionizing air purifiers are generally a bit safer to use than ozone generators, they still can indirectly product the harmful ozone mentioned above.
What sets the HALO-LED model apart is effectiveness in producing the desired oxidizing effects and particle neutralization while being zero ozone compliant or producing any other harmful byproduct.
This is done using UV light technology coupled with self-cleaning ionizers, which work in combination to reduce airborne and surface microbial, bacteria, viruses, mold, odors allergens, dust and more indoor air pollutants.
The HALO-LED also conveniently fits into your existing ductwork, working in combination with your HVAC system to effectively treat every cubic inch of air conditioned space in your Lowcountry home.
Air purifying technology and studies have come a long way over the years, and with RGF’s HALO-LED whole-home in-duct model, it’s taken another large leap forward.
