If you’re looking for a way to clean the air in your Manassas home, you’ve likely heard of UV light air purifiers. However, the state-of-the-art technology may be hard to understand. How do they work, and are they effective? The pros at Crystal Clean Duct Service LLC are here to shed light on the science behind these purifiers. Below, we’ll take a closer look at what makes them run and how a UV light air purifier installation in your home can help reduce germs and keep your air clean.
What Is the UV Light Air Scrubber?
One popular version of UV light air purifiers is the AirScrubber by Aerus®. This state-of-the-art purifier attaches directly to your HVAC system’s ductwork, reducing viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants in the ambient air and on surfaces while the HVAC fan runs.
This patented air purification technology has been proven to reduce up to 99.9% of common airborne and surface contaminants.
The Science Behind the Air Scrubber
The Air Scrubber uses light waves and a catalytic process to produce scrubber ion hydroperoxides. These ions destroy contaminants on surfaces and in the air. Amazingly, it features a high-intensity UVC light using the same oxidation and ionizing properties that occur naturally in sunlight.
Independent lab testing shows it’s effective against bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungi on surfaces and in the air. The numbers don’t lie. It takes only 24 hours to destroy over 99% of contaminants.
Benefits of Using the Air Scrubber
The Air Scrubber is one of the most effective air purifiers on the market. It’s no wonder it’s been approved as a Certified Space Technology. It removes VOCs, smoke, and odors without using ozone and safely removes allergy- and asthma-triggering contaminants from the air. It also protects your HVAC system from potentially dangerous buildup. In fact, the Air Scrubber contains the same technology as the Aerus Hydroxyl Blaster, which testing showed killed COVID-19 on surfaces. It’s also safe to use in occupied areas, including with infants and pets.
One of the best things about the Air Scrubber is that it can be easily installed in your existing HVAC system ductwork.
