Whole-House Air Purifier Systems
Has anyone found a safe whole-house air purifier system that is installed in (or around) your in-home HVAC system? My HVAC company recommended the Reme HALO whole-house in-duct air purifier by RGF, but I was concerned to learn it’s an “ionized hydro-peroxide” output that includes some level of ozone being emitted into the air from what I read in their literature/site and from talking to the manufacturer. They say it’s “safe” but I’ve read people with lung problems shouldn’t breathe in any ozone (I have Bronchiectasis). I also couldn’t get a straight answer as to whether the UV light is part of the Reme HALO or a separate UV bulb that shines on the AC coil (called the BLU QR UV stick light) or whether both have a UV component. I’ve read that UV in whole-house air purifiers (and whole-house water systems) is safe for humans – I’m more concerned about whole-house air purifiers that emit ozone. I’m also looking at whole-house UV purifiers without ozone (e.g., APCO-X, Purity, Field Controls Trio). All of these products are hard to decipher. I live in a townhouse with a small space for the HVAC system. I have 2 small Winex air purifier floor units (from Costco) that I use but I’ve learned that isn’t enough to remove harmful mycobacteria and mold spewing into the air from the HVAC air ducts and the AC coil where moisture builds up. If you have knowledge and experience about these systems, I’d appreciate your thoughts!
