Inhaling dirty air containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pet dander and other indoor pollutants has a poor effect on your health. That’s why an air scrubber is essential in your house. Your HVAC system’s air filter protects its components from debris, dirt, dust and other contaminants. But it doesn’t do much to help with the air quality throughout your house. Here are four benefits you can reap from installing an air scrubber in your Virginia Beach, VA, home:
Cleans Your Home’s Air
The EPA states that the air inside the home is often two to five times more polluted than the air outside. When you activate your air scrubber, it quickly gets to work to remove vapors, gases, VOCs and other airborne contaminants.
Eliminates Odors and Spores
If you’ve ever had lingering odors in your home, you understand how they affect your life until they go away or you find their source. Air scrubbers release natural cleaners of charged oxygen and hydrogen that find odors and break down the biological growth and other substances that cause them.
Extends HVAC Life
Regular HVAC maintenance is one way to extend the life of your system, but air scrubbers help, too. When you have an air scrubber, it finds and eliminates the contaminants that build up in your HVAC system and shorten its lifespan.
Protects Your Home
Air scrubbers don’t just clean the air in your HVAC system and elsewhere in your home, but they also clean everything else the particles come into contact with. This includes doorknobs, air ducts, furniture and everywhere in your house. This reduces the chances of those in your home falling ill.
