Vastola Heating & Cooling offers professional HVAC and indoor air quality services for homeowners in Erie County and the surrounding area. People rely on us to ensure that the air inside their homes is safe for their families. One of the options that we often recommend is the REME HALO® whole-home air purification system.

What Is Whole-Home Air Purification?

You may be familiar with air purifiers that you can find at a local hardware or home improvement store. These standalone units are designed to remove airborne particles, but they have many limitations. Each model only cleans specific square footage of air, leaving dust, pollen, and other irritants to float freely around the rest of your home. A whole-home air purifier will treat all the air inside your home, so you can rest assured that your family is fully protected.

Importance of Air Purification

Studies have shown that poor indoor air quality contributes to a range of medical conditions. Some are short-term, such as runny nose, irritated eyes, and congestion, much like when your allergies kick up in the spring. Others, though, are much more serious. Children who live in homes with poor indoor quality are more susceptible to developing asthma and other respiratory conditions as adults. For adults, people with chronic health conditions, and seniors, poor indoor air quality contributes to heart disease and lung disease, as well as more serious complications from other chronic conditions.

Common Indoor Airborne Particles

What particles are common in Erie County homes? Here is a list of some of the airborne particles that the experts at Vastola Heating & Cooling recommended treatment with our indoor air quality products.

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Pet dander
  • Mold spores
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Chemical and gases
  • Volatile organic compounds

1. Duct Installation of the REME HALO®

Unlike standalone products that you can find at a local store, the REME HALO® is installed in the ducts of your HVAC system. This design ensures that every part of the air is cleaned before being distributed throughout your home. Rather than just having a few areas with good air quality, your entire home is free of airborne particles.

2. No Filters Required

Consumer-grade air purification systems rely on filters to trap airborne particles. Over time, the filters get clogged with the particles, and you need to replace them. Another downside of filter-based systems is that the effectiveness also gradually declines as more particles become trapped in the material. The REME HALO® air purification system uses hydrogen peroxide rather than filters. A small amount of hydrogen peroxide is released near the air handler, carried through the ducts, and distributed into each room. The hydrogen peroxide kills and damages airborne particles that affect your family’s health and comfort.

3. Airborne and Surface Particles

The hydrogen peroxide that is released by the REME HALO® system not only cleans the air but also the surfaces in your home. In the same way that dust settles on your hard surfaces, carpets, and furniture, so does the hydrogen peroxide. Any particles on those surfaces are destroyed the same as those that are airborne.

4. 99% Effective

The REME HALO® system is proven 99% effective for:

  • Killing airborne mold spores, bacteria, and viruses
  • Destroying viruses on surfaces
  • Reducing germs released by sneezing

5. Easy Installation

The experts at Vastola Heating & Cooling specialize in the installation of the REME HALO® whole-home air purification system. It integrates perfectly with your existing ductwork, so no costly modifications are needed. It is hidden entirely inside the HVAC system, so you do not have to find space inside your home or have an unsightly appliance sitting around the room.

6. Simple DIY Maintenance

The only routine maintenance that is needed for the REME HALO® air purification system is to replace the cell that contains hydrogen peroxide. No tools are required, and it only takes a few minutes. You can do it yourself, or a technician from Vastola Heating & Cooling. We can also help with your heating and cooling installation, repair, and maintenance needs, as well as water heaters, boilers, and snowmelt systems. Be sure to ask about our 24×7 emergency repairs!
