October means the end of summer and the first signs of fall. With snow on its way, temperatures getting cooler, and fall allergies in full force, it means air quality and indoor air health challenges in Indianapolis homes change.
For Indianapolis area homeowners our favorite air heath product is the Reme Halo. The Reme Halo is an air purifier installed in your ductwork that is capable of treating all of the breathing air in your home. Similar to a UV light air treatment and a GPS or plasma device, the Reme Halo provides best in class air purification and indoor air quality for Indianapolis area homeowners.
According to RGF, the manufacturer of the Reme Halo, there product has had no definitive tests on the COVID-19 strain of coronavirus. However, while RGF does not have testing specifically on COVID-19, they have validated test results showing 99+% reductions on similar viruses. These viruses, like COVID-19, are also ‘enveloped’ or protein jacketed virus types. If it can reduce these virus types, an assumption could be made that it would also be effective at reducing the current coronavirus at hand. But it is very important to note that they make no medical claims regarding its efficacy in this matter.
The Reme Halo installs seamlessly in the supply plenum in most ducted heating and air conditioning systems. The Reme Halo system produces hydro-peroxide plasma, which occurs naturally in the earth’s atmosphere and is part of nature’s process to clean the air. That plasma charges particulates and pollutants in the air, which causes them to stick together and get caught by the air filter. Other benefits include:
• Dual ionizers to reduce airborne particulates (dust, dander, pollen, mold spores)
• Kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses
• Reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet.
• New zinc ions kill 99% of viruses on surfaces
• Unlike portable units that are limited to the room in which they are placed, the Reme Halo provides whole home and building purification.

Are you one of the 30% of adults that suffer from allergies exacerbated by Indianapolis low air quality?
At Homesense, we look at heating and cooling as just the beginning of an overall home environment. Hot and cold air can help with comfort, but the conversation around air quality can be more important.
We believe in indoor air health, commonly called indoor air quality or IAQ inside the industry, so much that we have invested in our team training to receive specialized certifications.
In addition, the Reme Halo solution combined with an air duct cleaning is what our owner, Brian, decided to invest in for his own home. The investment prompted his wife to share her experience on Facebook.
Her biggest immediate takeaway was that it helped neutralize and remove cooking smells from the home.
