INDOOR AIR QUALITY
At Air Around the Clock our focus is on the individual A/C needs of our clients. We pride ourselves on our high level of air conditioning customer service and partnering with our clients to fulfill their A/C needs. Our goal is simple: healthy indoor A/C environments for where our clients live, work and learn. With the use of Guardian Air, a RGF product, we can now provide an A/C product that proactively acts to destroy the pollutants at the source, in the air and in surfaces, before they can reach your family, clients or employees through air conditioners.
RGF first developed its air Advanced Oxidation product line to fill a need solving indoor air quality problems from air conditioners in three basic categories: particulates, microbials and gases.
Particulates are dust, smoke or very small particles. Most homes have A/C systems with a filter to aid in reducing particulates. However, these A/C filters were generally not designed for air quality. Rather, they were designed to keep the air conditioning equipment clean. No consideration was given to gases, odors or microbials (bacteria, molds, viruses) in air conditioners.
RGF developed its air Advanced Oxidation product line to fill an indoor air problem by reducing or eliminating gases/odors and microbials in A/Cs. Thus, the use of advanced oxidation gases or friendly oxidizers that are oxygen and hydrogen based. Numerous validation tests show effectiveness of up to 99+% against bacteria, viruses, odors, mold and VOC’s in air conditioners.
It is a normal reaction to question the long-term safety of any product that is effective and uses new or “breakthrough” technology. This type of question has become common, as our litigious society has taught us to question things that significantly outperform existing methods or products. The active ingredient created by the RGF products 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: unstable oxygen molecules, water vapor and energy (electro magnetic). Hydroperoxides are very effective at destroying harmful microbials in air from A/Cs.
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 an air-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 air-conditioned space.
There is no known case of hydroperoxides ever creating a health risk through air conditioners. Considering we have been exposed to hydroperoxides in nature since the day man stepped on the planet, it is a reasonable assumption that they do not constitute a health risk in air conditioners. Over the past 20 plus years RGF has more than 1 million Advanced Oxidation products and air conditioners successfully used worldwide.
