REME HALO FAQ's

How does the REME HALO Model REME-H work to improve air quality?

Invented to help solve indoor air quality issues the REME-H recreates nature’s process of purifying the air, it’s like bringing fresh outdoor air inside without ever having to open your windows. The REME HALO is effective at mitigating all three categories of indoor air pollutants: Particulates, Microbial and Gases.

The HALO allows you to reduce common allergy triggers from particulates such as pollen, mold spores, dander and dust from your home or business. Thoroughly tested on airborne and surface bacteria & viruses, such as MRSA, e-coli, and Norwalk, to name a few. Say goodbye to odors from cooking, pets, dirty socks, diaper pails, and musty rooms.

The REME HALO is a whole home in-duct HVAC unit that features ionized hydroperoxide output, which kills microbial contaminants in the air as well as on surfaces. This ionized Hydroperoxide output also drops particulates from the air, bringing relief to those who suffer from allergies and other respiratory issues. Now with quick release features for the cell and housing for faster cell replacement and an adjustable shroud for customization of the advanced oxidation plasma output.

RGF recommends that REME HALO Model REME-H operate continuously to insure optimal performance and maximize cell life.

The REME HALO 24vac power supply requires 700 mA of power for each Guardian Air unit being installed on the circuit.

You can use a 40VA transformer capable of connecting to a suitable 120, 208, 240VAC Source.(RGF is currently not supplying transformers). When installing multiple units on an HVAC system it is recommended to use a properly sized 24VAC transformer.

When using a secondary transformer, ensure it is installed in compliance with local codes by a certified installer. 

Yes. The Model REME-H should have continous power and not cycle on and off with the fan or HVAC system. Cycling the unit on and off can shorten the life of the bulb. For installation instructions check out the REME HALO installation manual and wiring diagram

The REME HALO's ionization will cause particle to be charged and draw together to create larger particle. This make it easier for filters to pull those contaminates from the air. RGF recommends using and electro static filer to filter more efficiently. Atomic 11 and 13 and higher are electrostatic.  MERV 13 filters down to the size of viruses.

Yes, the REME HALO reduces does in several ways. By charging the particles in the air causes them to draw together into larger particles. This causes the particles to either fall out of the air to the ground or to be large enough to be filtered by your air filters. MERV 11, 13 or higher electrostatic air filters are recommended for best results.

The REME HALO can help prevent mold, viruses and bacteria from replicating by inactivating the pathogens. The California Microbiology Center tested the RGF's Advanced Oxidation Technology (AOT) used by the REME HALO and saw a 97% to 98% reduction in Mold in a 2000 sq/ft home and 3000 sq/ft simulated home. Their test also showed a 99% reduction in bacteria and 90+% reduction in yeast. See all test results.

The REME HALO bulb / cell is  good for 2 years(up to 25,000 hours). The bulb will have reduced output over time and the cell should be replaced even if the bulb is still working. The REME-H should be wired to have continuous power for optimal performance.

Yes, the REME HALO has been used in the following cases. It can be used for 1000-6000 CFM's. It can be used for 2.5 to 16.25 ton units.

• U.S. Military approved for mold reduction in field hospitals.
• U.S. and International Hospital approval for the fight against infectious diseases: 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA).
• Major U.S. city school reports 20% reduction in absenteeism.
• Tested and approved by the Chinese Government for protection against the deadly SARS virus.
• Approved by the USDA, FSIS, and FDA for use in food processing plants. Employed to reduce microbial contamination of food being processed.
• Cruise lines use it as a safety measure against Norwalk Virus outbreaks.

The REME HALO® can be installed in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications where a ducted HVAC system exists. Here are some examples:
• Single family homes, apartments, condos
• In hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and doctor’s offices
• Schools, daycare centers, colleges and universities
• Fitness centers, locker rooms, athletic facilities
• Office buildings
• Veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, kennels,
• Hotels, motels, and resorts.
• Food processing and manufacturing plants/facilities
• Restaurants, diners, and bars

The cost of installation is up to the individual HVAC installer. The cost can vary depending on your region of the country, the complexity of your system, and the demand for HVAC services. One requirement for warranty coverage from the manufacturer is that the REME HALO be installed by a licensed HVAC contractor. RGF has a list of contractors who have been trained on installation of the REME HALO on the RGF website just click Find a Contractor. 

RGF recommends installing the HALO in the Supply Plenum just after the air handler. You can find the installation manual link on this page.
