family comfortable at homeMany people who purchase newer homes are often surprised to find that their indoor air quality (or IAQ) isn’t what they’d hoped it would be. That’s because modern homes are built to be airtight. While that can help keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer and can make homes more energy efficient, it can also trap stale or polluted air in the home. Then, that air is recirculated repeatedly by the home’s HVAC system, so the air never gets fresh and clean.

For this very reason, many homeowners are turning to IAQ products to improve the air inside their homes. While there are several products available on the market today, many people are turning to the Air Scrubber system to improve their IAQ and enjoy fresher, cleaner air all year long. In this article, we’ll explain what the Air Scrubber is, the benefits of installing one in your home, and how BC Express can help. Keep reading to learn more!

What is an Air Scrubber?

An Air Scrubber is the name brand of an air purification system designed to help eliminate indoor air quality risks by reducing air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), cigarette smoke, dust, pollen, mold, odor-causing bacteria, and odors caused by pets and cooking. How it works sounds a bit like something out of a sci-fi movie – photocatalytic oxidation. This method uses ultraviolet light to break down pollutants into harmless molecules. What that means in simpler terms is that the Air Scrubber uses light waves, along with oxygen and hydrogen, to “scrub” away contaminants and particulates, allowing for fresher, cleaner indoor air.

What are some of the benefits of installing an Air Scrubber?

Aside from the air in your home smelling fresher and cleaner, there are other benefits to installing an Air Scrubber. These include:

  • Improved respiratory health: Air Scrubbers can help to reduce your exposure to pollutants that can irritate your airways and trigger allergies and asthma. They are beneficial in any home, but especially for those who suffer from respiratory illnesses.
  • Reduced risk of infection: Air Scrubbers can help to remove bacteria and viruses from the air, which can help to reduce your risk of getting sick. This is especially important in homes where there are children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.
  • Increased comfort: Air Scrubbers can help to remove odors and pollutants that can make your home feel stuffy and uncomfortable. We’ve all experienced homes that smell musty or have tobacco or pet odors. The Air Scrubber helps remove those types of odors and more.
  • Increased energy efficiency: Air Scrubbers can help to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system by removing pollutants that can clog up the filters and coils.
