Do you have kids or older relatives in your home? What about cats or dogs? Bad allergies, maybe? If you’re constantly battling unpleasant smells or want to protect you and yours from illness and infection (including COVID-19,) then this article is for you.
We’re going to dive into one of the best smell reducing, airborne pathogen killing, surface sanitizing filtration systems known to man – the Air Scrubber Plus® by Aerus.
How Does the Air Scrubber Plus® Work?
The Air Scrubber Plus® by Aerus substantially reduces odors, visible smoke in the air, and microbial populations on surfaces*, utilizing the patent-pending ActivePure® Technology.
ActivePure was developed in cooperation with NASA and consists of a special UV light and photocatalyst target, creating an Advanced Oxidation Process containing several friendly oxidizers.
Simply put – this filter disinfects and purifies air in your home and kills most contaminants on all surfaces of your home, keeping you and your loved ones healthier and your home smelling fresher.
Why, Yes — It Has Been Researched
In November 2020, the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), which primarily tests for the U.S. military and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), found that ActivePure technology inactivated over 99.9% of highly-concentrated airborne SARS-CoV-2 virus in an enclosed setting in just 3 minutes. You can see the final report of this study here.
A Kansas State University study led by Dr. James Marsden showed that ActivePure Technology reduced an indoor environment’s amount of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, by 99.8 percent and E. coli by 98.1 percent. The study also demonstrated similar effectiveness in neutralizing black mold and other potentially dangerous pathogens.*
Another study conducted over 18 months by Dr. Sergey Grinshpun of the University of Cincinnati concluded “Fresh Air Radiant Catalytic Ionization (ActivePure -RCI) was able to inactivate approximately 90% of airborne microorganisms in less than 60 minutes.”
The Air Scrubber Plus® Can Also Help Your HVAC System
With the Air Scrubber Plus® ionization process, you can extend the life of your HVAC system.
This process causes microscopic dust and dirt particles to clump together, making them too big to slip through filters or even remain airborne. Those particles get caught in the filter much easier, or they fall to the ground and you vacuum them up. This means the coils and blower of your HVAC system stay cleaner, helping it run more efficiently throughout the year.
With your HVAC system no longer needing to work extra hard to keep your home comfortable, you’ll be able to get more years out of it and avoid expensive maintenance and repair costs.
