The environmental protection agency rates indoor air pollution among the top 5 environmental health risks and says that the best way to address this risk is to control or eliminate the sources of pollution. You can add an air cleaner or air scrubber to your HVAC system to clean the air that you’re breathing in your home.
- Whole House Electronic Air Cleaner
These electronic air cleaners trap and filter up to 99% of airborne particles passing through your heating and cooling system. It works by placing a charge on airborne particles and then collecting them like a magnet. It captures both microscopic particles like dust and smoke as well as larger contaminants like mold and pet dander. Three stage filtration ensures that you have clean air in all the rooms of your home. Want one more step for good measure? You can add the optional postfilter. Maintenance is easy – just wash the filter cells in a dishwasher or sink when needed (about once a year).
Activtek Air Scrubber Plus – Clean, deodorize and purify
This product combines three innovative active technologies to clean and disinfect the air. Active pure technology, ozone, and ionization.
- Active pure uses a honeycomb cell coated with a proprietary formulation of non-nano titanium dioxide and transition elements. A broad-spectrum UV light is located adjacent to the cell. Oxygen and water molecules in the air react with this and create strong oxidizers.
- Ozone is in the air we breathe daily. It is a great disinfectant. This unit creates enough ozone to destroy mold, mildew, fungi, and smoke odors but levels that are well below the EPA exposure limits.
- Ionization is nature’s way of cleaning the air. Negative ions are produced naturally in situations where water evaporates, so like after a rainstorm. In Activtek products they are created electrically or through friction.
Not only does the air scrubber plus clean 90% of airborne contaminants in the air that you breathe, it reduces up to 99% of harmful contaminants on the surfaces of your home as well as attacks odors.
