A recent study shows over 97% of homes were found to have lower than acceptable levels of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).* These findings were recorded based upon over 49,000 individual tests performed over a two year period.

Guardian Air / REME Advantage
Guardian Air does not need the pollutants to travel to the air handler for UV treatment or filtration. Guardian Air is proactive and uses oxygen to aggressively seek out and destroy pollutants at the source – in the air and on sources, before they can reach your family, clients or employees. The RGF Guardian Air Phi Cell ( Air Purifier) is installed inside of the ventilation system of your home or office building. The Phi Cell (short for Photohyrdoionization cell) uses light, water and oxygen to produce “Mother Nature’s friendly cleaners” – hydro-peroxides. These cleaners circulate through your conditioned air space and kill airborne and surface viruses, bacteria, mold, odors and VOCs before they can spread.
Why is this important?
During each minute the nearly 21 hours we spend indoors each day, we take in between one and two gallons of air. This air contains not only the oxygen we need to survive, but air pollutant levels that are usually 2 to 5 times higher than outdoors, and can get up to 100 times higher. These air pollutants include the following:
- Particle Allergens
- Chemical Pollutants
- Carbon Dioxide
- Excessive Temperatures
- Excess Humidity
- Carbon Monoxide
What problems can poor IAQ cause?
Poor IAQ is one of the top 5 most urgent environmental risks to public health. Despite this fact, many consumers are unaware that it could even potentially be a problem, much less that it can cause problems associated with the following conditions:
- Birth Defects
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Lead Exposure
- Neurobehavioral Disorders
Does this affect me?
Each year 342,000 lives are lost because of lung disease: 20 million people have allergy problems, and spending on allergy and asthma symptoms stands at over $5 billion per year. Over 97% of the homes surveyed showed unacceptable levels of at least one type of pollutant. So, chances are, it is affecting you right now.
What can I do?
While poor IAQ is a significant problem, there are actions each homeowner can take to improve it. For example, properly maintaining your air conditioning and heating systems are simple steps you can take to improve IAQ.
