It’s true: many people think that once you step inside of your home, you won’t have to worry about any air pollution getting indoors. However, this is false — and according to the EPA, your indoor air quality could be 2-5 times polluted as outdoor air. In some cases, it can be as high as 100 times. However, the EPA has stated that indoor air pollution is one of the most dangerous factors facing our planet today.
During winter, the temperatures will mostly keep you indoors, and it’s essential to make sure that you do everything you can to have good indoor air quality. Of course, there is little that you can do to improve the air quality on the outside of your home — but you can make a difference indoors. If you have an HVAC system, then you can definitely choose to have an air scrubber installed — but what does that entail?
What Is An Air Scrubber?
Fact: an air scrubber may also be known as a negative air machine. This essential device lives up to the name: it cleans (scrubs) the air you breathe, leaving your air quality perfect and free of pollutants. Additionally, an air scrubber can help to:
• Reduce allergens
• Reduce dust
• Remove cigarette smoke odor
• Removal of mold spores and smells
• Removal of burnt food odor
• Remove VOCs
Typically, air scrubber technology is placed right into your existing ductwork and is very affordable.
Indeed, if you want to make sure that your indoor air quality is excellent and safe for your entire family, then you’ll want to consider placing an air scrubber within your HVAC system. This device will help to avoid things such as volatile organic compounds, airborne contaminants, gaseous compounds, and more. Additionally, your health will greatly benefit from an air scrubber.
