Both of these unique whole home units reduce bacteria, viruses, mould spores, VOCs and odours throughout your mechanically ventilated space, both in the air and on surfaces. The REME HVAC has an added technology that removes allergens like dust, dander, and pollen and inorganic particulates like soot/smoke particles from the air.
Our whole property air purifiers are installed in the supply ventilation duct and enrich the whole property to reduce bacteria, virus, mould spores, odours, allergens and inorganic particulates. UV/PCO purifiers only provide passive treatment within the duct. In other words all the air must pass through the duct to treat it.
The output of the unit reduces with time. After two years (up to 25,000 hours) of operation, it is recommended to change out the replaceable cell.
No maintenance is required once the unit has been installed!
The best location for your REME HVAC or AOP HVAC unit is in the supply plenum, just after the ventilation unit. This allows for optimal operation and full distribution throughout the ventilated space.
For optimal performance and maximum cell life we recommend that the REME HVAC and/or AOP HVAC be wired so that it runs continuously.
The indicator light on the REME HVAC was changed from green to red in November of 2017. The light simply indicates that the unit is powered. If the light is on, whether the colour is green OR red, your unit is receiving power.
Some people may notice a slight smell after installation and some people don’t notice anything at all. It has been described as similar to fresh, clean outdoor air, but can be stronger at first for those who have a particularly keen sense of smell. You will notice the smell subdue over time. If not please contact us.
If you are one who happens to love the smell that the REME HVAC/AOP HVAC produces throughout your home or workplace, you may feel as though it has stopped working when you can no longer smell it. It’s ok! It is still working! Rest assured that if the indicator light is on, your system will continually provide over 2 years, or over 25,000 hours of fresh, clean, purified air.
If your indicator light is on, your unit is working and will provide up to 25,000 hours, or over two years of fresh, clean, purified air.
The shroud positioning has no effect on the life of the REME cell. The shroud will only help to control the output of the REME HVAC based on the air flow of the ventilation system.
