We’re well aware this holiday season will look a lot different than anything that came before. Despite this, there are a few traditions we’re holding on to. No matter what, we’ll still cook delicious food to celebrate the season, put out decorations, and of course light some scented candles to get in the festive mood. There’s also one thing no holiday season can be without: presents. While you’re gifting your family, think about giving a gift to your home. We’re sharing the reasons why your home should have an air scrubber this holiday season.
First, what is An Air Scrubber?
Simply put, an air scrubber is an addon to your existing HVAC system. Air scrubbers are installed directly into the ductwork around your furnace, often right above the air filter. When the air scrubber is in your HVAC system, it acts as the ultimate line of defense against indoor air contaminates. This includes viruses, bacteria, dust, dander, and anything that could be tracked in on your shoes.
To achieve this, air scrubbers are outfitted with intense UV lights. The UV waves are at such a high, concentrated level that they will eliminate most airborne viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants as they pass by the light.
Kill Any Hidden Viruses or Bacteria
This year, more than ever, we’re focused on the health and safety of everyone in our home. The air scrubber is a great way to make sure your home remains a place of safety. Air scrubbers are lab tested, and they can reduce 90% of airborne pathogens, including: E. Coli, Listeria, Staph, Strep, Hep A, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, and MRSA.
Make Your Home Cleaning a Breeze with an Air Scrubber
Another reason your home needs an air scrubber is that it makes cleaning and dusting a breeze. Air scrubbers clump dust particles together. This makes them heavy, so they fall out of the air in large clusters. When dust is grouped into larger clusters, it’s easier to see and easier to clean. As air is filtered through your HVAC system, an air scrubber will give it an extra clean from light waves and a special catalytic process that produces ions that brings the dust particles together.
Eradicate Indoor Air Pollutants
Believe it or not, there are indoor air pollutants lurking in nearly every room. From that bottle of dry shampoo to the cleaning supplies you use; they’re all coming for your indoor air. Even scented candles can contribute to indoor air pollution. As strong scents from these products are released into the air, they also produce particulate matter, in this case soot. An air scrubber is one of our favorite ways to rid your home of harmful particulates.
Cut Through Any Strong Kitchen Smells
Are you planning on cooking this Thanksgiving? While we all know how nice it can be to have the smell of cooking turkey waft through your home, no one wants that lingering longer than it needs. As an air scrubber purifies the air in your home, it also works to remove any odors from your home. This also includes pet smells and anything the kids may drag in.
