Your Phoenix, Arizona home should be your family's safe haven. A place where you can feel comfortable and breath freely without the worry of outside contaminants. Many people don't realize that your air inside their home is around 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors. Indoor air pollution is one the biggest environmental dangers to date.
With the Phoenix heat being almost unbearable at times, it has most of us running inside to escape these outrageous temperatures. Filtering the air in your home is now more important than ever. It ensures that you have a healthy environment for you and all those that reside in your home.
There may not be a lot that you can do to help the quality of air outside your home, but there are products on the market that can help you control what happens within your own walls. One of those products is called Air Scrubber Plus®.
We are here to breakdown what an Air Scrubber is, how it works, what it could cost, and how it works to provide a safer air environment for your family.

What is Air Scrubber Plus®?
Air scrubbers are primarily used to improve the air quality in your home or commercial area. They act as a permanent fixture inside your existing ductwork, to clean and purify your air.
Air Scrubber Plus®
Air Scrubber Plus®, is the latest and greatest in air cleaning and filtration technology. As of 2013, Air Scrubber Plus® can be used in residential applications.
Air Scrubber Plus with ActivePure™ technology removes up to 99.9% of the harmful contaminants in your home.
Air Scrubber Plus® is the only air cleaning technology awarded the Certified Space Technology seal of approval by the Space Foundation (in cooperation with NASA).
Air Scrubber Plus® doesn’t just treat the air, it also helps to clean the surfaces of your home, such as countertops, bathrooms, kitchens, and doorknobs. The Air Scrubber Plus® is designed to fit into your existing HVAC system. Installed directly into your forced air duct system, Air Scrubber Plus® utilizes many different technologies to clean and purify the indoor air.
When your air conditioner, fan, or furnace gets turned on, air flows through the titanium dioxide-coated honeycomb matrix.
When inside, the airborne contaminants pass through a strong UV germicidal light which works to disrupt the DNA of any airborne contaminants to render them useless. Once the DNA is scrambled, the active pollutants effectively die. Air filters can trap pollutants, but only air purification systems such as Air Scrubbers actually kill the contaminants and pathogens in your home.
Many people who think they are allergic to dust are actually allergic to dust mites, microscopic creatures that are just as alive as any other living creature. When living things like dust mites get zapped by UV light, they die.
Air Scrubber Plus® goes beyond just UV rays. While germicidal UV rays can reduce airborne contaminants that pass through its powerful rays, Air Scrubber Plus® with ActivePure™ technology actively sends air scrubbers into the indoor environment.
As the airborne contaminants pass through the Air Scrubber ActivePure™ technology, they are transformed into powerful oxidizers, which get disseminated into the environment, helping to eliminate pathogens in the air and on surfaces.
Reactive metals combined with UV light and a proprietary catalytic process transforms the particulates into charged clusters of hydrogen and oxygen (hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyls, and superoxide ions), which are antimicrobial agents found in nature.
The “friendly cleaners” get released back into your air to help reduce contaminants in the home, both in the air and on surfaces. The scrubbers are effective against gases, vapors, VOCs, and offensive odors.
Once released, the particles become supercharged (superoxide ions and hydroxyls) to attack and destroy contaminants, fungi, mold, and odor-causing bacteria. Even the contaminates that hide underneath cushions and rugs get found and eliminated by the charged ions. The charged “air scrubbers” get rid of the microscopic impurities that are invisible to the human eye.
Air Scrubber Plus® attracts positive ions (the majority of particles in the home) by using negatively charged ions. Air Scrubber Plus® also has models available with ozone technology to enhance its ability to combat strong odors from pets, household products, smoke, and more. Keep in mind that ozone-free models are also available.

You might be thinking, "Isn't an air filter enough?" Even though air filters help capture large contaminates like dirt, Air Scrubbers clean the air to reduce contaminants such as mold, odors, and pollutants in the air and on your surfaces.
According to their website, “In only 30 minutes Air Scrubber Plus® technology reduces over 90% of the pathogens in the air — which is 50 times more powerful than normal HVAC filtration” (Air Scrubber Plus).
Using an Air Scrubber it will not only filter the air, but it will clean and purify it. Taking your homes air quality to a whole new level.
Often times when a strange odor finds its way into your home, the first thing we like to do is grab the Febreze or other air freshener. These may help the smell, but spraying one of these air fresheners will add chemicals into the air that may not be safe for your family.
Using a air scrubber you can reduce the toxins and odors in the air naturally without all the extra chemicals. As soon as you turn on your air conditioning unit, the Air Scrubber is ignited.
Give Longer Life to Your HVAC System
Adding an Air Scrubber into your HVAC system will extend your HVAC systems life greatly. The Air Scrubber will increase the efficiency by eliminating air contaminants instead of allowing them to find a place to live in your HVAC system. This will help your HVAC system last much longer, reduce repairs, and lower your energy bills.
Talk about a smart investment.
