IAQ FAQs

What are the pollutants found in indoor air?

Every house has its own supply of airborne pollutants. Pollutants can easily enter our homes and some are actually generated inside the home. Sources of indoor contaminants include odors from cooking, hair and dander from pets, germs and viruses from outside the home, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from paints, pressed wood, and household chemicals like nail polish remover, and mold, mold spores, and other fungi.

Why can’t I use any UV light for Indoor Air Quality?

Germs and odors need to be exposed to the UV light for a period of time to be destroyed. The air going through your AC system is moving too quickly for the UV light to have a large effect and the light can only affect the pollutants that make it back to the ductwork. The kind of passive technology is great for keeping stationary objects like your cooling coil clean, but just isn’t designed to be effective on large amounts of air.

What makes the guardian air different?

The most important thing to get across about the Guardian Air is its proactive ability to kill germs and eliminate odors in the conditioned space. These units don’t need the pollutants to travel through the duct work to be neutralized. Every time your fan blows air it carries the purifying power of natures “Friendly Oxidizers” out into the conditioned space where the “Friendly Oxidizers” begin to attack the Bacteria, Virus, Mold Spores at the source and completely eliminate odors in your home.

How effective is the guardian air PHITM?

Take Like the human sneeze as an example.Germs come out with a sneeze at 100mph. With the Guardian Air installed, 78% of the germs in a sneeze were neutralized before the germs could make it 3 feet.

The Guardian Air will eliminate:

  • Smoke odors
  • Cooking odors
  • Pet odors
  • Trash odors
  • “Musty” or Stale Air smells
  • Paint odors & Chemical odors

In addition, RGF technology, because of it’s ability to kill bacteria and virus on surfaces and in the air, have been specified in the Norovirus/MRSA protection plan of America’s largest restaurant chains, hotel chains, theme parks, cruise lines, public schools and hospitals. Testing the guardian air has shown a 99% reduction of H1N1 virus on Stainless steel surfaces, 98% reduction of MRSA, a 99% reduction of Norwalk Virus, a 97% reduction of Mold Spores, even a 99+% reduction of SARS and Avian Flu.

How Does It Work?

The breakthrough in the RGF advanced oxidation technologies is a group of oxidants known as Hydroperoxides.     Hydroperoxides have been a common part of our environment for over 3.5 billion years. Hydroperoxides are created in our atmosphere whenever three components are present: oxygen molecules, water vapor and energy (electro magnetic).  PHITM has the ability to create hydroperoxides. Ionized-Hydroperoxides TM are very effective at destroying harmful microbes in the air and on surfaces. As oxidants, they do this by either destroying the microbe through a process known as cell lysing or by changing its molecular structure and rendering it harmless (which is the case in VOC’s and odors). The amount of hydroperoxides required to accomplish this task in a conditioned space is well below the level that is constantly in our outside air. The Advanced Oxidation Technology found in RGF’s Guardian Air product family has brought the oxidants found in the outside air into the conditioned space of your home.
