The quality of the air inside your home is important. We spend roughly one-third of our lives sleeping, let alone awake time in our homes. Home is where the heart is and where the most important people in your life are. Making sure that the air they breathe is clean is essential. The scary truth is that indoor air quality can be ten times worse than outdoor air quality. This can be worse during colder months when homes are shut up tight to keep in the heat.
Indoor Air Quality – Cold & Flu Season
Cold and flu season is especially bad this year. Every day we hear about the high flu activity across the nation and how the elderly and the very young are most vulnerable. And sadly, many are dying from the flu. Should the flu find its way into your home, how do you protect the rest of your family? Installing an Air Scrubber Plus might be a great preventative solution.
Increasing the indoor air quality of your home while fighting off cold and flu germs sounds great right? But how can you do that? Installing an Air Scrubber Plus to your HVAC system can be a great first line of defense against cold and flu viruses. But what is an Air Scrubber Plus and how does it work?
An Air Scrubber is an add-on to your HVAC system that uses UV light to clean the air that circulates through your home. Based on technology created by the NASA Space Program to keep air quality clean for astronauts in space, the scrubber reduces up to 99% of surface and airborne particles in the air. This includes bacteria, viruses, and odor-causing air particles. Reducing the threat of sickness and harmful toxins in your home is its function. As the air continually passes through your HVAC system, it is exposed to UV light waves, and a catalytic process made up of oxygen and hydrogen that cleans it before circulating back into the house. As new harmful particles are brought in, they are destroyed as they pass through the Air Scrubber. Reducing allergens is a significant benefit as well, especially for those that suffer from asthma. In addition, air pollutants such as cigarette smoke, pollen, dust, mold, pet dander and cooking smells are all reduced. The Air Scrubber Plus is 50 times more powerful than your standard HVAC filter.
