Do you know that the air in your home can be more polluted that the outside air? Most people spend the majority of their time inside their homes and other buildings, so the quality of that air is of utmost importance. For clean good quality air, it is important to keep dust particles, allergens and contaminants low, and to maintain a proper humidity level. Not only is clean air important for the health of your family, it is also important for the equipment in your home. High levels of dust can damage computer equipment, home entertainment equipment, and can reduce the efficiency of your air conditioning equipment.

Humidifiers will keep your home more comfortable during the heating season. They help combat bloody noses, dry skin, and reduce static electricity. Some virus (like influenza) depends on a dry environment to live. A humidifier can reduce your family’s chances of contracting these types of viruses. Over-dry air can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms which lead to dry noses, sore throats, and cracked, itchy skin. Dry air can damage things in your home like plaster, hard wood floors, and furniture. Humidity makes your home feel warmer which means you can be comfortable at a lower temperature. There are many health benefits, energy savings, and comforts associated with whole home humidifiers.
Media Air Filter Cabinet
Media Air Filters will filter out 20 times more dirt and allergens than a standard 1 in filter.
Your standard 1” filter has a clean air delivery rate of 12. Clean air delivery rate measures the
effectiveness of air cleaners. The higher the delivery rate, the more effective the unit is at filtering
out airborne particles and allergens. See the diagram below for more details.
If you are looking for something for better filtration than your 1” filter but do not want to spend the money on something like the CleanEffects™, this is the product for you. In most cases it can be easily switched out in the same location as your current 1” filter. Call us for more details.

RGF® Guardian Air Purification System
This air purification takes germicidal air to a completely new level. It was designed to minimize the effects of a bioterrorist attack in a public place. The scenario was "What if a terrorist aspirated a deadly virus or bacteria in a public area?" Scientists concluded that killing the virus or bacteria in the HVAC system was too late as anyone exposed would have left, exposed others, and a pandemic would arise. RFG proposed that aggressive, friendly oxidizers such as hydro-peroxides, released into the air, could intercept the aspirated bacteria/virus within inches of aspiration. The oxidizers would neutralize the microbes immediately. In order to see how quickly the oxidizers could neutralize the microbes, RFG created a sneeze machine to test the theory. The found that the Guardian Air PHI Cell® showed a 78% reduction in 3’ and the Guardian Air REME® Cell showed a 99% reduction in 3' from the point of aspiration. The unit is placed in your return air duct and as the air is pushed over the coil the RGF Guardian air cell emits oxidizers which are pushed throughout your home attacking and killing microbes.
