There is a myth among people that they are protected from air pollution inside the comfort of their home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor environments are around 2-5 times as polluted as the air outdoors, and occasionally up to 100 times as polluted! The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental dangers facing our planet. This is a serious problem which we all face.
As the temperatures drop and we start spending more time indoors, the quality of our indoor air becomes more and more important to our health and well-being.
While there is little you can do to affect the quality of the air outdoors, there is a lot you can do to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) at home. If you have a forced air system in your home, there are many different modifications you can make to your existing HVAC system to improve the quality of the air you breathe.
An air scrubber is a portable filtration system that removes unhealthy particles, gasses, and/or chemicals from the air within a given area. These machines draw air in from the surrounding environment and pass it through a series of filters to remove contaminants.
Air scrubber as name suggests, they will act as scrubbers to remove and clean the air of a wide variety of airborne pollutants. This type of air device can cover thousands of square feet with a single one air scrubber, which can often times make them a more affordable and effective option than other types of air devices. There are two major methods used in air scrubbers; dry and wet scrubbing – which both work in different ways to scrub the air clean in an indoor environment.
In addition to making everyone in the home feel better, Air Scrubber Plus® technology also extends the lifespan and efficiency of your HVAC system. Instead of damaging and
dirtying your HVAC system, indoor air contaminants get broken up and eliminated by the Air Scrubbers.
