According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution ranks among the top five environmental dangers to public health. As winter continues and you spend most of your time inside, there are several modifications you can make to improve your indoor air quality. Consider the following ways an air scrubber can improve the air in your Culloden, WV, home:
What are Air Scrubbers?
Air scrubbers are portable air filtration systems used to remove particles, gases and chemicals. Although we mainly associate them with renovation companies and other large job sites, they equally apply in homes.
They work by drawing in the polluted air. It runs through a series of filters that trap the pollutants, recirculating the clean air back into your home. Air scrubbers sit inside your ductwork.
Use of air fresheners only adds chemicals to your indoor air, reducing its quality. Air scrubbers naturally reduce toxins from your home. Using ActivePure® Technology, air scrubbers purify the air on your surfaces whenever you turn on the furnace, fan or air conditioner.
Air scrubbers purify and sanitize the air of pet odors. They reduce other contaminants that include:
- Cigarette smoke.
- Odor caused by burnt food.
- Musty smells from microbial.
Air scrubbers with ActivePure® Technology not only improve your IAQ. They also help reduce complications associated with pollutants, including:
- Chest tightness.
- Allergy symptoms.
- Nose, throat and eye irritation.
Air scrubbers with ActivePure® Technology actively clean your indoor air by reducing the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The ordinary air filters only capture large airborne pollutants such as dirt and dust. Air scrubbers attract positively charged air contaminants by using negatively charged ions.
