With the increase in demand for products that improve indoor air quality, many comparisons have been made and questions have been asked regarding the difference between the REME HALO products and a UV light kit. Though these products may appear to look similar, their uses and results are very different.
Our President and Owner, Billy Swanson, recently spoke about Indoor Air Quality on The Suncoast View. During his interview, he talked about the 4 Sources of Poor Indoor Air Quality (particles, gaseous odors, microbials/living organisms, and viruses/bacteria) and how anyone can combat them in their home.
What is the REME HALO?
The REME HALO is an in-duct whole-home air purification system. It reduces both airborne and surface contaminants and pollutants through bi-polar ionization and REME technology in every cubic inch of air conditioned space. The goal of the REME HALO is to improve indoor air quality and eliminate sick building syndrome risks by neutralizing odors, particulates, air pollutants, VOCs, smoke, mold, viruses, and bacteria.The REME HALO has a 5 year limited warranty and a 2 year cell warranty.
What is the REME HALO LED?
The REME HALO LED provides the same results as the REME HALO, but it goes a step further. The REME HALO LED is the industry’s first LED in-duct whole home air purification system that is both mercury free and zero ozone compliant. Additionally, the REME HALO LED has a 7 year limited warranty and a 4 year cell warranty.
What makes the REME HALO products different?
With traditional UVC light kits, the pollutants have to pass through the UVC light in order to be treated. This is not the case with the REME HALO and the REME HALO LED. These products are like none other because they proactively send ionized oxidizers into the room to destroy the pollutants at the source both in the air and on surfaces.
Have the REME HALO products been tested?
Yes! Here are some of the test results from university and independent lab tests and major corporation studies:
- Inactivates SARS-CoV-2 by 99.9%, commonly known as the coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19
- H1N1 Swine Flu with 99+% kill on surfaces
- 99.99% surface bacteria/virus reduction
- Over 85% VOC reduction
- 99% of microbes in human sneeze killed at 3 feet
- 97% airborne bacterial reduction
- 99% reductions of Ecoli, Listeria, Strep, Tuberculosis, Bird Flu, etc.
- 85% odor reduction
- 97% airborne mold reduction
- US Military approved for mold protection in field hospitals
- Hospital approvals infectious diseases – US and International 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA)
- Major US city school reports 20% reduction in absenteeism
- Additional REME HALO product test results
Do the REME HALO products protect against the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
A third-party study has revealed REME HALO® efficacy of 99.9% against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, commonly known as the coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19.
“The study results show the REME HALO® to be effective in combating the COVID-19 virus and a valuable solution to immediately improve the Indoor Air Quality of residential and commercial spaces and protect occupants against exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.” -Dr. James Marsden, Executive Director of Science and Technology at RGF.
Are the REME HALO products safe?
Yes! This technology uses a group of oxidants known as Hydroperoxides which are naturally created in our atmosphere whenever oxygen molecules, water vapor, and energy are present. The REME HALO and REME HALO LED are able to use this naturally occurring process to create Ionized-Hydro-Peroxides which are very effective at destroying harmful microbials both in the air and on surfaces. Over two million Advanced Oxidation products have been used worldwide without a safety problem.

Have you been told that you need to get the ducts cleaned in your home or office? Are you suffering from allergies and looking to increase the quality of the air you breathe? Duct cleaning is often offered as a solution, but rarely helps in the long run. In fact, sometimes it makes the indoor air quality worse.
