What Is an Air Scrubber and Why Do I Need One?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

air scrubberIndoor air pollution is a serious issue that affects us all, as people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. This matters not only to those who have respiratory problems, but all people, as pollutants can cause serious long-term health issues. The EPA considers indoor air pollution to be one of the top five environmental dangers to personal health, with it being two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.

Air scrubbers aim to combat this danger by reducing airborne contaminants. The Air Scrubber Plus® employs germicidal UV light waves to freshen, clean, and purify the air in your home. It creates “enviroscrubbing” oxygen and hydrogen molecules that mimics purifying molecules that exist in nature. ActivePure™ technology can effectively reduce over 90% of the pathogens in your air in just 30 minutes. This technique is so powerful that air scrubbers are employed by NASA astronauts to purify the air to enable plant growth while in space.

Benefits of Air Scrubbers

Air scrubbers differ from air purifiers in that they do not employ a filter. Purifiers have filters that must be cleaned and changed on a regular basis; Air Scrubber Plus® sends out “scrubber” molecules that clean the air for you, eliminating maintenance altogether. Here are some additional benefits beyond the lower maintenance:

  • Stay healthy: Pathogens, the main cause of illness, are saturated in indoor air. Air scrubbers target these particles to eliminate them and keep you healthier. They also eliminate contaminants that can make it difficult to breathe, especially for those with asthma or other respiratory conditions. Install an Air Scrubber Plus® for easier breathing.
  • Smell fresh: Mold bacteria and spore can actually carry scent that contributes to foul odors in homes. An Air Scrubber Plus® can reduce these particles by up to 99%, leaving your home smelling fresh and clean—no chemical cleaners necessary.
  • Protect your HVAC system: Dust and debris in the air is one of the primary ways to clog an HVAC system. Air filters help, but the Air Scrubber Plus® eliminates an air filter’s role by removing the debris from the air on its own. This helps to preserve the strength of your HVAC system and keep you comfortable while improving your indoor air quality.
