So, we’ve come up with yet another way to help with indoor air quality control. We have the routine cleaning of your air ducts, routine air conditioner maintenance, and now a new air purification system by RGF.
And it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.
The Guardian Air by RGF is designed to eliminate sick building syndrome risks by reducing odors, air pollutants, VOCs (also known as chemical odors), smoke, mold, bacteria, and viruses. Not only is this new air purification system effective at eliminating a vast majority of pollutants in your home, but it’s easy to install as well. But, how does it work?
Well, the HVAC-PHI cells (what’s used in the air purification system) are easily mounted into the central air and heating ducts where most sick building problems start. When the HVAC system is in operation, the HVAC-PHI cell creates an advanced oxidation process consisting of hydro-peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions.
That’s all well and good, but what does that actually mean when you break it down from the science jargon into simple English?
Basically, the oxidants this unit creates circulate around your home along with the treated air and neutralize microbials at the source. This means your home will stay cleaner, smell fresher, and be healthier for both you and your family.
Okay, so now we know how it works, but how well does it work? Well, an independent blind study showed that the RGF Guardian Air reduces gasses and odors by 85%, mold by 97%, Bacteria by 99%, and viruses by 99.99%. Sounds like it works pretty well to me!
We have decided to start offering this new product and service to our customers for one simple reason: We are dedicated to the quality of our work and the satisfaction of our customers. We want to help make your home a cleaner, more comfortable place for you and your family.

Okay, I know that it’s just the beginning of summer, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to think about preparing for the cold and flu season! I know, it sounds a bit out of the blue, but here’s an interesting bit of information for you: The EPA ran a study that showed the air quality in the average home is up to five (5) times dirtier than the air outside. Makes you think, doesn’t it? So, does that mean that the air in your home is just as bad as or worse than the air in LA? Probably.
Healthy living at its finest
Luckily, there is a pretty easy way for improving the indoor air quality of your home. But, before I get into that, let me paint a little picture for you.
Say it’s getting closer to cold and flu season, and you, like so many other people in America, start to feel a bit under the weather. It could be a simple case of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which basically means you get depressed when the weather gets cold, or it could be that the cold has compromised your immune system enough for the poor air quality in your home to get you sick. It happens more than you may think. Now, you can spend the cold half of the year feeling like crap, or you can do something about it. Here’s where that easy way to fix it all comes in.
Have clean air ducts. Yes, your house has air ducts, just like all the buildings in those blockbuster action films everyone’s seen, only yours are too small for you to play spy in.
Doesn’t actually work that way
Over time, and especially with use, dust and debris start to build up. But they’re not the only things; mold, insects, and even rodents tend to inhabit these tiny passageways, allowing your central air and heat system to spread their filth around your house like they owns the place. Needless to say, this can have a largely negative impact on your health.
By getting your air ducts cleaned and your air conditioning maintenanced regularly, say once or twice a year, you can do your part to help ensure that it’s healthier for you to breathe inside instead of outside. Now, I know that summer has just gotten here, and it may seem a little soon to be gearing up for the winter, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start planning for it. Keep it in mind, because it’s better to have it all said, done, and out of the way before the cold seasons get here.
