REME HALO Review
Any REME HALO review has to begin with the advent of terrorism in America. Probably not the most pleasant subject, but this cultural phenomenon and reality of our country is uniquely attached to the creation and development of the REME Halo air purification system. The essential reason for the creation of the REME Halo was to prevent and eradicate the immediate spread of any kind of airborne pathogen such as antrax, H1N1, and others. Our government set about directing laboratories across the world in developing technologies that would keep the American people safe inside public buildings and public conveyances such as trains, trams, and airplanes.
In addition, it wasn’t enough for the technology to just be able to prevent the virus or toxin from spreading. The technology had to be advanced enough to immediately stop the virus upon its insertion into the atmosphere. In other words, the product created had to completely eliminate the onset and spread of any toxin or potential lethal chemical.
So, the REME HALO technology was originated by RGF Environmental Group, Inc. in Riviera Beach, Florida. RGF is a leader in the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) industry and offers many different patented and patent pending air purification technologies.
REME or Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy is a highly sophisticated oxidation technology designed to minimize/neutralize/eradicate indoor air pollutants such as viruses, bacteria, mold, gases, odors, pollen, dust and any other thing floating around in the air. The REME uses an electromagnetic energy cell to create ionized hydro-peroxides or H202. These peroxides are created from an exact combination of oxygen and humidity. As an added advantage, the REME HALO also reduces airborne dust and particles through bi-polar ionization. This causes airborne particles to clump together making them larger. Because they are larger, your home air filters will prevent or “catch” more particles making them more efficient and your air even cleaner.
In case all of this is sounding a bit strange, an explanation of the active force in the REME HALO is required. The advent of new technologies or medical treatments and even medications is usually accompanied by skepticism from the general public. After all, how many times have we turned on the television and seen a recall of medications or a lawsuit surrounding various ingenious devices. Well, dear reader allow me to set you at ease.
THERE IS NO KNOWN CASE OF HYDRO-PEROXIDES EVER CREATING A HEALTH RISK
The complete truth is that we have been exposed to hydro-peroxides in nature since the beginning of life on earth. Hydro-peroxides are created in our atmosphere whenever oxygen is joined with water vapor and electromagnetic force or energy. The oxidant called a hydro-peroxide is effective at destroying microbes by cell lysing. Cell lysing is the breaking down of the membrane that surrounds a cell. Think of the saliva in your mouth. When this saliva is applied to food, it begins breaking it down so it can be digested in the stomach. When hydro-peroxides are applied to air particles or surfaces, it acts to breakdown the outer membrane of the particle, thus compromising its ability to protect and contain its inner parts. This compromise causes the death of the cell.
Very simply, RGF has figured out a way to bring the trillions of oxidants available in the outside atmosphere into the geographical space of your home!
This next generation air purifier has the capacity to clean and clear every cubic inch of your home. It doesn’t wait for contaminants to pass through it to rid the air of them. The REME HALO goes to the contaminant and kills it on contact. This device was also created to eliminate “sick building syndrome” which resulted from so many people working in cubicles inside large, downtown buildings. It is effective in removing dust, dander, spores, mold, and is even used in hospitals. Hospitals have shown a marked decrease in the number of MRSA, e-coli, and Norwalk cases reported.
The REME HALO reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet. The new REME HALO also contains zinc ions which are particularly effective on surfaces. This device is easily integrated with your HVAC system and operates in silence. It is designed with two quick release features which allows replacement of parts with no tools needed.
Freedom Heating and Cooling technicians are trained and qualified to install the REME HALO in commercial or residential situations. Technicians are taught where and how to install the device in your HVAC system. The contents of a package for installation includes the REME HALO HVAC unit itself with an adhesive-backed mounting plate, an adhesive-backed foil mounting ring, four(4) mounting screws, Instructions and warranty card, a caution UV in use decal, and a 24 VAC transformer.
Installation by a technician is a fast way to get the benefits of the REME HALO going in your home environment, however you may choose to install it yourself. Follow these steps.
- Determine the mounting location. It is recommended it be installed in the air plenum just after the air handling unit or the supply side. You will want to drill a hole into the duct that is closest to a power source.
- Position the REME HALO midway in your air duct and make sure you are allowing enough room to place the mounting plate and secure it.
- Using a 3inch hole saw, cut a 3inch hole into the duct.
- Peel the paper backing off the self-adhesive sealing ring and affix it to the back side of the mounting plate.
- Insert the probe in the 3inch opening with the arrow indicator going the same direction as the airflow. Press firmly all around the perimeter of the flange and make sure it is sealed tightly.
- Place screws into the mounting plate and tighten them securely.
- Once the unit is secured to the duct, apply the foil sealing ring to ensure an airtight seal.
- The unit may then be connected to any 120, 208, or 240 VAC source with the supplied 40VA transformer.
There is a unique feature built into the design of the REME HALO that is worthy of mention here. There is a shroud surrounding the REME cell. This shroud may be adjusted to provide a greater or lesser flow of ionized particles to the environment. Think of the shroud as an aperture that allows one to create larger or smaller holes through which air will pass.
The following is a description of the output variances that may be used based on the opening/closing of the shroud. If the shroud is completely closed, the device will still emit particles at 1,000-1,250 cubic feet per min. If the shroud is ¼ open, it will then emit particles at 1,250-1,750 cubic feet per min. If the shroud is ½ open, it will emit particles at 1,750-3,250 cubic feet per min. If the shroud is ¾ open, it will then emit particles at 3,250-4,875 cubic feet per min. Finally, if the shroud is fully open, it will emit particles at 4,875-6,500 cubic feet per min.
Test Results and Data
RGF technologies developed its Advanced Oxidation Technology over 20 years ago. Recent occurrences have required they upgrade there technology to include use in Fortune 500 companies and have applications in medical, food, military, residential, commercial, marine, hospitality, and government areas. The technology found in the REME HALO has been approved and registered by the Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL), the Electrical Testing Labs (ETL), the Technischer Uberwachungsverein (TUV), the European Union (EU), and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
RGF technologies are approved and accepted by the US Military, the Chinese Government, the Japanese Government, the Canadian Government, and the European Union.
