What You Need to Know About Indoor Air Quality

The quality of the air we breathe has a significant impact on our health, comfort, and overall well-being. Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of the air inside buildings, including homes, offices, schools, and other enclosed spaces. It is affected by a wide range of factors, including ventilation, temperature, humidity, and the presence of pollutants such as dust, mold, and chemicals.

When Should I Change Air Filters?

One of the most important factors in maintaining good indoor air quality is the use of good quality air filters. Air filters are designed to capture particles and impurities that circulate in the air. They trap dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne allergens, which can cause respiratory problems and aggravate allergies. Filters also capture larger particles like hair, fur, and lint, which can clog up your HVAC system and reduce its efficiency.

It is important to change air filters regularly to ensure they continue to work effectively. Over time, filters become clogged with the particles they trap, reducing their ability to capture new particles. This means that as time goes on, more and more pollutants can circulate in the air, potentially causing health problems for you and your family. We recommend changing filters every 30-90 days, depending on usage and the type of filter, number of guest you have in your home and if anyone in your home is sensitive to allergies.

In addition to air filters, there are also air purification products that can help improve indoor air quality. The REME HALO-LED, for example, is an air purifier that uses advanced ionization and UV technologies to neutralize pollutants and pathogens in the air. The system produces hydrogen peroxide molecules that attach themselves to airborne particles, causing them to become heavier and fall out of the air. This can significantly reduce the amount of pollutants in your indoor air.

Another air purification product is the Fresh Aire Dual UV, which uses a combination of UV-C light and activated carbon to capture and eliminate pollutants. The UV-C light kills bacteria, viruses, and mold, while the activated carbon captures odors and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from household products like cleaning supplies and air fresheners.


              The APCO-X MAG15 DT3 is a whole-house air purification system that uses UV-C light to neutralize airborne viruses and bacteria, while also reducing VOCs and odors.

The system includes a replaceable UV-C lamp and a carbon odor filter, ensuring that your indoor air is fresh and clean.

What Can I Do to Improve My IAQ?

         In addition to these air purification products, there are other steps you can take to improve your indoor air quality. For example, you can:

  • Use a dehumidifier to reduce humidity levels and prevent the growth of mold and mildew
  • Keep your home clean and tidy to reduce the amount of dust and other particles in the air
  • Open windows and doors to increase ventilation and improve air circulation
  • Avoid using air fresheners and other scented products, which can release harmful chemicals into the air
  • Choose low-VOC household products, including cleaning supplies, paint, and furniture

         By taking these steps and using air filters and air purification products, you can significantly improve the quality of the air inside your home or office. This can help reduce the risk of respiratory problems, allergies, and other health issues caused by poor indoor air quality. So, make sure to change your filters regularly and consider investing in air purification products like the REME HALO-LED, Fresh Aire Dual UV, and APCO-X MAG15 DT3 to ensure that you and your family are breathing clean, fresh air.

         Indoor air quality is crucial to our health and wellbeing. Poor air quality may lead to various health problems, and it is important to take measures to improve the air we breathe indoors. One of the easiest and most effective ways to improve indoor air quality is by regularly changing air filters. Additionally, using air purification systems such as the REME HALO-LED, Fresh Aire Dual UV, and APCO-X MAG15 DT3 can further improve indoor air quality by removing pollutants and contaminants from the air.
