Suffering from asthma or allergies? Active air purification can help.

Feb 8, 2023 | Health, Medical, Residential

More than 10% of Australians suffer from asthma, a chronic lung condition caused by inflammation and narrowing of the airways. While asthma can typically be managed with medication (e.g. reliever inhalers and preventer/controller medications), many people find their symptoms worsen significantly from exposure to common allergens like dust mites, mould, animal dander and pollen. Air purification solutions are becoming increasingly popular as a means to eliminate allergen particles in the air.

So, how can active air purification minimise allergen exposure to help asthma sufferers find relief?

The REME-HALO® and REME HALO-LED™ include a bipolar ioniser which is effective at agglomerating airborne particles like dust, dander, mould and pollen making them fall to the floor faster and improving filtration of AC systems.

Bipolar Ionisation is a system which creates positively and negatively charged ions that react with particles in the air which can cause allergic reactions.

The allergen particles take on a positive or negative charge of their own, causing them to attract one another and group together into a larger compound (agglomeration). As the agglomerated particles increase in mass, they fall out of the breathing zone and onto the floor and surrounding surfaces, making them easier for air filters to capture and remove.

Bipolar ions also break down the surface proteins of harmful airborne pathogens, such as viruses and mould. As the positive and negative ions surround pathogen particles in the air, they pull away the essential hydrogen molecules, essentially neutralising the pathogen by altering its very structure.

This industry-leading air purification technology provides an effective way to eliminate allergens and pathogens from your indoor environment, allowing asthma sufferers to find relief from symptoms triggered by particle exposure.
