What Is an Air Scrubber, and How Does It Work?

If you have been looking for ways to improve the air quality in your home, you may have come across the Air Scrubber Plus, by Aerus. This compact device can remove 99.9% of the harmful contaminants in your home, which is an impressive stat for those concerned about the viruses, bacteria, and chemicals that are circulating in their indoor air —but do Air Scrubbers actually work?  

Now more than ever, homeowners are looking to keep their homes safe by keeping their breathing air healthy. Here is what you should know about how this device operates and how an Air Scrubber Plus is effective at keeping the homes of Cherry Hill, Gloucester, Harrison Township, and Sicklerville healthier. 

“Active” Air Purification, Developed for NASA

At its heart, the Air Scrubber Plus is an air purification system that is installed in your central HVAC system and safely utilizes a proprietary catalytic process, along with UV light radiation, to actively remove harmful contaminants from your breathing air, as well as the surfaces of your home. This technology was initially developed for space travel, to keep astronauts safe within small, confined spaces. 

So, how is it that UV light can be safely used to purify the air? UV light (and more specifically, UVC light) can be harmful to humans when they are exposed to this naturally occurring light radiation (the UVC light from the sun is filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere before it can reach our skin). The UV light radiation of an Air Scrubber Plus happens entirely behind the safety of your ductwork, where it is combined with a catalytic process that disrupts the replication of any harmful particles. 

But killing viruses and bacteria are only one part of the Air Scrubber Plus’s purification process. In this process, enviro-scrubbing molecules of oxygen and hydrogen are also created, and then sent into your living space. These molecules attack the remaining contaminants that are on the surfaces of your home. This active air purification process is responsible for removing 99.9% of the contaminants in both your central ductwork and your living space!

So, Is an Air Scrubber Worth It?

If you are looking to improve your indoor air quality this year, you will be hard-pressed to find an air purification system with more benefits than the Air Scrubber Plus. Because the Air Scrubber is so effective, it offers more than just clean air—you can also expect:

  • Less need for air duct cleaning
  • Reduced wear and tear of your heating and cooling system
  • Longer HVAC system life expectancy
  • Lower risk of future mold growth
  • Less dust in the home
