Actively Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Between work and home, the average American spends 90% of their time indoors, and the EPA warns that indoor air pollution is among the top health risks in the U.S. The reason for this is that pollutant concentrations are often two to five times higher than found outdoors. Advancements in construction have led to homes and commercial sites that are better sealed than ever. It is necessary to have an optimal ventilation system, but even with that, the air inside cannot be cleaner than the outside air without some form of filtration. Horn Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning has helped homeowners and businesses in Pennsylvania improve their indoor air since 1981, and we recommend an air scrubber, which is installed in your existing ductwork and removes both airborne and surface contaminants.
What is an Air Scrubber?
Air scrubbers are air-cleaning devices that have two core components: ultraviolet light and a catalytic process. This technology was originally designed for use aboard the International Space Station but has since been adapted for both residential and commercial applications. What distinguishes air scrubbers from other air cleaners is that they can eliminate both airborne and surface contaminants, and that makes them a popular option for hospitals and other medical facilities around the world. Air scrubbers for the home and similar commercial usage are designed to be installed ductwork and therefore integrate with the existing HVAC system, and they are able to eliminate more than 99% of bacteria, viruses, mold, volatile organic compounds, odor-causing contaminants, dust mites, pet dander, and much more.
Should I Install an Air Scrubber?
Eliminating more than 99% of the contaminants in your home is a big deal and the reason that Horn recommends air scrubber technology to all of our customers. Not only will your home smell better and your air be easier to breathe, but you’ll also be less prone to illnesses, respiratory irritation, poor skin and hair health, headaches, fatigue, and so forth. It is also a good investment for your HVAC system as it will significantly reduce the buildup of grime, which will extend the life of your equipment. Air scrubbers are especially important in indoor environments occupied by people with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions.
