It is surprising to some of us just how poor our indoor air actually is. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is about 2-5 times more polluted than the air outdoors. As we find ourselves spending more time indoors, the quality of our indoor air becomes more and more important to health and well-being. So, how can we clean up the air inside? Air Scrubbers are a best solution!

Air scrubbers are installed to reduce dust, pet dander, odors and other allergens and pollutants inside your home. Here is a list of some of the most common pollutants in a home that air scrubbers clean:

  • Pet Odor & Dander
  • Dirt and Dust
  • Cigarette Smoke
  • VOCs
  • Mold Spores
  • Smells and Other Odors
  • Lingering Food Odor
  • Off-gassing from New Upholstery and Carpeting

While air filters work to capture larger airborne contaminants, such as dust and dirt, air scrubbers clean microscopic pollutants or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), contaminants, mold, odors, and pollutants in the air and on surfaces. Air scrubbers also helps clean, deodorize, and purify the air. Finally, the cleaner the air, continued efficiency and HVAC operation is also a benefit. Air scrubbers can lengthen the lifespan of your HVAC system!

Air scrubber prices depend on the size of your home and HVAC system. But the for the benefit of cleaner air and HVAC efficiency, it is a small investment that you’ll be glad you made!
