How the Reme Halo’s Photohydroionization™ (PHI) Technology Improves Your IAQ

Your Savannah, GA home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system plays a major role in keeping the air inside your home clean, and simple changes like changing your filter on a routine basis can help improve your home’s IAQ – but they won’t solve the problem. That’s why Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning is proud to carry the Reme Halo whole home in-duct air purifying system, and its patented Photohydroionization™ (PHI) technology.

What is Photohydroionization and How Does it Improve IAQ?

Photohydroionization or PHI is a patented ionized hydroperoxide technology developed by RGF Environmental in the late 1990s. In simple terms, PHI cleans indoor air by changing the chemical properties of particles in the air using a very fine mist of hydrogen peroxide. The technology is compatible with all HVAC systems, and our team at Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning highly recommends it to anyone in Savannah, GA and the surrounding areas that wants to improve their IAQ.
The technology behind PHI is actually pretty simple. It simulates natural hydroperoxides in the outdoor air – Mother Nature’s own system for improving IAQ. To do this, PHI uses a rare metal catalyst and a hydrating agent activated by a broad-spectrum ultraviolet light. The tools react with ambient moisture in the air to create hydroperoxides. The hydroperoxides are then ionized to make PHI even more effective.

Is Photohydroionization Right for Me?

PHI is a safe and effective way to aggressively sanitize indoor air, and one that our team of specialists have had great success with. We prefer it over alternative options because it kills microbes at the source – before you come in contact with them – and doesn’t use contaminants or microbes that can be killed by the filter system.
We love PHI, but don’t take our word for it – hundreds of independent studies and lab tests have proven Photohydroionization to be a very effective and safe method of controlling airborne organics.

Savannah’s Indoor Air Quality Experts

When most people think of air pollution, they think of smog, outdoor air pollutants and chemicals; things they can escape by heading indoors. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case, and your home may have some of the worst indoor air quality around. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, and even up to 1,000 times worse at certain times.
Indoor air quality is affected by emissions from volatile organic compounds like paint and cleaning products, outdoor allergens inside the home, bacteria, viruses, dust, mold and the presence of other particulates in the air you breathe.
