Signs Your Home Could Benefit From an Air Scrubber

Did you know that your indoor air can be even more polluted than the outdoor air? Yes, it’s true.

In fact, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that indoor air can be up to five times as polluted as outdoor air.  This is primarily because indoor air isn’t circulated as much as the outside air, making it the perfect breeding ground for airborne contaminants.

This is where air scrubbers come in. They can help remove several indoor air pollutants that can trigger various health issues, including allergies and respiratory infections.

At General Heating & Air Conditioning, our professionals are experts in everything related to air scrubbers in the Twin Cities metro area.

Let’s look at how an air scrubber works and why you might need one!

What Does an Air Scrubber Do?

An air scrubber is a filtration system that purifies your air by reducing airborne contaminants. The device generally removes mold, dust, odors, pollen, and other pollutants from your environment.

The air filtration system pulls the surrounding air into the machine, runs the air through multiple filters, and recirculates the purified air into the room.

These portable filtration systems can be used for both residential and industrial purposes.

5 Signs Your Home Needs an Air Scrubber

So, how do you know if your home needs an air scrubber?

Here are some signs to look out for that would help you decide whether you should invest in an air scrubber.

1. You Have Respiratory Issues

Bacteria and viruses can easily find their way into your home through the air. Investing in an air scrubber is an excellent way of eliminating most allergens lurking around in your home, resulting in poor indoor air quality.

While seasonal allergies are common, they shouldn't hang around all year. And if they do, it's time to get your hands on an air scrubber which can help reduce the chances of you or your loved ones getting sick.

2. Your Home Has Mold Growth

Besides eliciting allergic reactions in sensitive individuals, mold can also cause pulmonary fibrosis, i.e., scarring of the lungs. Air scrubbers are typically used in large-scale mold remediation projects because they can filter out the fine mold spores in your air.

The HEPA filter in the air scrubber will draw the air from the compromised environment and filter out the impurities, including molds.

3. You’re Allergic to Dust Mites

Most people naturally assume that they are allergic to dust in the air, but this isn’t always the case. You might be allergic to dust mites instead.

Dust mites are living creatures commonly found in your air.

Investing in an air scrubber is a good idea since it can help filter the dust mites from your air.

4. You Have Trouble Falling Asleep

There’s no denying that poor sleep can affect your overall health. And if you continuously find yourself restless and up all night, consider getting an air scrubber.

Improving your air quality can help improve your sleep tremendously. Air scrubbers do precisely that by removing contaminants from your air, reducing allergies, and improving your sleep quality.

5. The Presence of Excess Microbes & Other Pollutants

Your indoor air is usually polluted by volatile organic compounds (VOC) and microorganisms. The microscopic life forms floating in the atmosphere include bacteria, viruses, mold, etc.

Consider installing an air scrubber to help remove the VOCs, microbes, and other pollutants from the surrounding air.
