According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the quality of indoor air can be two to five times (and even up to 100 times) more polluted than the worst outside air, which is why they've ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers.
Poor air quality can cause a host of health problems, such as coughing, sneezing, eye irritation/itching, fatigue, dizziness, headaches and migraines, as well as congestion in the sinuses and chest. It can also exacerbate allergies and preexisting respiratory conditions, including dyspnea (difficult or painful breathing), rhinitis (inflammation of the nose, runny nose), epistaxis (nose bleeds), pharyngitis (sore throat), lung disease, and asthma or worsening asthma.
Most if not all of these issues can be controlled or even eliminated by significantly improving the quality of the air in your home. Don't assume it's fine because it very well may not be. Ignoring this puts not only your health at risk, but the health of your entire family, including pets.
So what can you do to improve your indoor air quality? Most people have some sort of air purifier, whether it's part of your air duct system or portable, that uses a filter (usually multiple ones), electrical attraction, oxidation, or a combination of these. Air purifiers using these technologies, however, often leave much to be desired when it comes to actually improving your air quality.
Enter the Air Scrubber Plus, a seamless, fully integrated 24/7 home air purification system. It makes cleaning surfaces, mopping up offending odors, and reducing harmful airborne contaminants as simple as turning on your furnace, fan, or air conditioning system.
The Air Scrubber Plus also freshens, purifying the air in your home while reducing strong odors such as those from cigarette smoke, bacteria, pets, and cooking by naturally absorbing the particles that keep those odors lingering. This allows you to spray and scrub surfaces far less, and odors won't simply be disguised with toxic chemicals—they'll be eradicated.
Additionally, the Air Scrubber Plus purifies your air. Unlike air filters that are passive, Air Scrubber Plus actively treats the air by continually sending out Active Pure scrubbers throughout your home to greatly reduce chemicals, dangerous contaminants, mold, odors, and pollutants in the air.
The peer-reviewed ActivePure technology was derived from an air purifying system designed by NASA for the International Space Station. It's 50 times more powerful than the average HVAC filtration system and can reduce up to 99.9% of the harmful contaminants throughout your home.
The way it works is through specialized germicidal UV light waves along with a proprietary catalytic process that creates enviroscrubbing molecules of oxygen and hydrogen, just like in nature.
The key components of the Air Scrubber Plus are the honeycomb surface and UV light. The surface, which is coated with a titanium oxide and a proprietary formulation of reactive metals, creates a catalytic reaction that generates charged dusters of hydrogen and oxygen.
The Air Scrubber Plus will improve your environment, and therefore your overall health. Many of the health issues mentioned earlier will resolve, as the Air Scrubber Plus reduces harmful airborne toxins. It reduces black mold by up to 99.9%, MSRA Superbug by 99.8%, Avian Flu by 99%, Staph and Strep by 98.5%, and E. Coli by 98.1%.
Tom Lozano, Executive Director at Air Scrubber Plus, has seen extraordinary results over the company's eight years. "Every time we do a test at a school or a business where they keep track of attendance, we see a significant drop in absences due to sickness, up to 80 to 90 percent," he says. Air Scrubber plus has done two major studies, both peer reviewed, and they've corroborated what Lozano claims.
What's more, the Air Scrubber Plus extends the life of your existing heating and air conditioning system by trapping dirt, dust, and other debris before it enters through the filter, which can damage the coils and blower that keep your system running effectively.
A protected HVAC system can last up to 15 years or more at peak efficiency. This will save you money on your utility bills and reduce the need for expensive service calls. An unprotected system will become dirty, causing it to break down in as little as five years.
A professional heating and cooling technician can easily install the Air Scrubber Plus. A standard unit covers up to 3,000 square feet when operating and begins working at once. The unit is not visible inside your home—a small 4" square cut is made into your existing duct work and the unit is mounted directly above your HVAC's air handler. Once that is done, you're on the way to breathing the cleanest, freshest air of your life.
