The filter in your HVAC system is helpful, but sometimes, your indoor air system needs a boost. Installing an air scrubber into your existing ductwork can make all the difference!
What Does an Air Scrubber Do?
The purpose of an air scrubber is to act as a portable air purifier. Air scrubbers can be attached to the ductwork of an HVAC unit. Air scrubbers remove air pollution, debris, animal dander, smoke particles, bad smells and dust. Think of it as a system that cleans your air the same way you’d clean a bathtub or a toilet. Air scrubbers can also be used in place of ductwork. The overall point of an air scrubber is to improve the quality of air in your home and keep it clean over time.
With just an HVAC system alone, you’re able to heat and cool your house, but over time your air quality will diminish. Especially if you live in an area with bad pollution, have pets, smoke inside the house, or rarely dust. You can change out filters from time to time to trap debris, dust and pollutants, but if you want a really thorough cleaning to your air quality, an air scrubber is the way to go.
How do Air Scrubbers Work?
An air scrubber uses filters to purify and remove contaminants that come from the air that circulates through it. The air scrubber device pulls in the old air, purfies it, then releases the clean air back into the space. Air scrubbers are typically made up of 4 parts: pre-filters, a carbon filter, a primary filter and a blower.
First, the pre-filters grab onto the larger particles and debris from the air. Next, if an air scrubber has carbon filter (optional), it will go through a process called adsorption, which will capture gas and vapor molecules (odors). These molecules are attracted to carbon, making them easy to capture. Third, the primary filter removes the smallest particles from the air it takes in before blowing it out, resulting in fresh, clean air without pollutants, odors or dander. In order to push out the purified air, every air scrubber needs a blower. This blower pulls the unfiltered air into the system and pushes it back out again after it has been cleaned.
What Are the Benefits of an Air Scrubber?
Having an air scrubber installed has many benefits. If you suffer from allergies, own one or more pets, live in an area with bad pollution, or struggle to clean frequently, having an air scrubber installed can be a real life saver.
- Living in an area with a higher pollution rate
- Own one or more cats or dogs
- Suffer from allergies or respiratory issues
- Clean your home’s surfaces infrequently
