While the story of air pollution in the environment is not a new one, it’s probably news to you that your home’s indoor air quality is probably worse off than outside.

According to the EPA, indoor air is likely 3 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. When you couple that with the fact that 90% of our lives are spent indoors, you can imagine the impact it can have on your heath.

As construction standards have pushed for more efficient homes, the decrease in filtration (the natural exchange of outdoor air) has led to “tighter” homes. That means more combustion air from cooking, VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from building materials, and chemicals from cleaning products are trapped and circulated inside your breathing air.

As this phenomenon has grown, Homesense Heating and Cooling has done its homework. “We believe that it’s the duty of any heating and cooling provider to go beyond boxes that make hot and cold, to truly look out for homeowners’ health and safety when it comes to indoor air,” said Brian Schutt, co-founder of locally owned Homesense Heating and Cooling.

Having personally dealt with allergies and illness with his family, he decided to test and try a variety of solutions.

“We’ve tried just about everything on the market to clean our air,” said Schutt, “With two young kids regularly in the petri dish of public schools, we’ve seen a measurable change in their health this winter.”

The reason for that change, according to Schutt, is the Reme Halo® whole home air purifier. This award-winning indoor air quality technology is professionally installed inside your home’s duct system, providing purified air to every cubic inch that your central HVAC system reaches.

The Reme Halo® kills up to 99% of bacteria and viruses, along with reducing airborne particulates like dust, dander, pollen and mold spores.

“An unexpected surprise has been the near elimination of some common household odors like when we cook or our dog has been outside,” Schutt concluded.
