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.

Other Indoor Air Quality Solutions

An air scrubber is not your only option to improve the air quality in your home or business, and Horn recommends a multifaceted approach in order to achieve optimal IAQ. Other air quality equipment that we install, maintain, and service includes humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and air purifiers.

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers are filter-based air cleaners. The simplest air purifiers have a HEPA filter that is highly effective at removing particulates from the air. More advanced units will also have a component that is able to eliminate gases and microorganisms. While an air purifier can be an alternative to an air scrubber, you can use air purifiers and air scrubbers in tandem for optimal indoor air quality.


The air is drier in winter, and that dryness is often exacerbated as a byproduct of heating your indoor space. Dry air is less comfortable, makes your space feel less warm, and can lead to respiratory issues and poor skin health. A central humidifier is an efficient and cost-effective way to avoid dry indoor air, and Horn can help you choose a humidifier that will integrate into your existing HVAC system.


Moisture levels that are too high are an even bigger concern because humid air sets the stage for mold, and it makes the environment more conducive to bacteria, viruses, dust mites, and other organisms that will diminish your indoor air quality. A central dehumidifier can be integrated into your existing HVAC system, and it will have the added benefit of causing your AC not to run as often or as hard.
