When installed and maintained by the licensed HVAC professionals at Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical, next-gen products such as the REME HALO® Air Purification Systems can kill 99% of viruses in homes and Whole-House Carbon Water Filtration, Softener and Reverse Osmosis equipment can dramatically reduce water contaminates.
In addition to better taste and decreased danger, true, ionized water can lead to healthier skin while also extending the life of expensive appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters, faucets and fixtures.
“Poor water quality can wreak havoc on our plumbing systems, and also our bodies,” says Abacus Water Treatment Operations Manager, Shane King. “Our carbon filtration system will make your water both easier on your skin and easier on your wallet.”
In early March, an investigation by Houston TV station KPRC 2 uncovered high levels of a toxic and cancer-causing chemical – chromium-6 – in the city’s water supply. The most dangerous readings were found in zip code 77099.
With no federal mandate to control chrominum-6 in drinking water, local congressman Al Green wrote to Congress asking the Environmental Protection Agency to put safety standards in place.
The result? “The EPA, in my opinion, has been dragging its feet,” Green said. “We’ve got to get the EPA to understand this is critical crucial and important. Until then, being pro-active is the best safeguard against harmful water in your home.” Says King, “Bottom line: Our filtration system is the best defense against toxic water in your home.”
As for safer air, The REME HALO® – also available through Abacus – will purify your home at its source: the HVAC system. Its patented technology is hospital tested and military approved to reduce allergies, fight odor and kill 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses.
“We haven’t come across anything that it can’t handle,” says Rene Luna, distributor of the patented product to certified HVAC companies like Abacus Plumbing since 2006. “It doesn’t wait to clean the air in the equipment, it actually cleans your air and your living space. It’s by far the leader in the industry.”
Though equipment testing has not yet specifically been performed against COVID-19, the REME HALO® has been approved to combat Staph (MRSA), SARS and e-coli. The latest systems include LED Ultra-Violet lighting and features dual ionizers that eliminate airborne particulates such as dust, dander, pollen and mold spores, reduce “sneeze germs” by three feet, and kill viruses left behind on surfaces.
Luna, an executive at The Partner Group – serving a four-state area including Texas – says he’s seen orders for the REME HALO increase “1,000 percent” in the last two weeks.
“We represent 16 other products, but this is the one people are asking for,” he says. “In a three-foot range, it will kill 99 percent of germs. With what we’re dealing with now, and probably again in the future, that’s a very valuable defense.”
Abacus Plumbing so trusts the REME HALO® that it installed them into the air conditioning systems at the office. Operating as an “essential business” in times when most Americans are encouraged or even mandated to stay inside their homes, Abacus is also stepping up efforts to keep its employees safe by adding the CAPTURA HEPA to its filtration system.
“To help keep our employees as healthy as possible, Abacus installed the same air filtration equipment in our offices that we install in our customer homes,” says Abacus Founder & CEO Alan O’Neill. “In an essential business like ours, we have to do everything possible to help prevent our team members from allergies, germs and viruses. We owe it to our employees to invest in their health, and our customers who depend on us to be ready to serve 24 hours a day.”
With a couple of simple steps, Houstonians can transform panic.. into peace of mind.
