Newer air purifier models tend to have better filtering capabilities than older ones, but that’s not always the case. That’s why if you’re looking for a new air purifier, it’s important to scrutinize each model’s features.
You may have heard of the new Molekule Air air purifier, a model that was recently introduced on the market. So how does it compare to Aerus®’ Air Scrubber, one of the most popular models on the market? To help you decide, our AC repair experts at Air Products & Services discuss the advantages of each option below.
Air Scrubber: Cutting-Edge Air Purification Technology
Many popular air purifier models use UV rays to remove contaminants found in indoor air. The problem is, this filtration method only decontaminates the air that passes directly in front of the UV rays, which limits the filtering capabilities of these models. Unlike conventional air purifiers, Air Scrubber decontaminates all of the air circulating inside your home and has a filtration method that’s 50 times more powerful than a conventional air purifier. Its cutting-edge ActivePure® technology distributes oxygen and hydrogen molecules that can neutralize up to 99.9% of airborne pollutants.
There’s plenty of evidence supporting ActivePure technology’s efficiency as well. Studies conducted at Kansas State University validate Air Scrubber’s efficiency at removing contaminants found in indoor air and on surfaces. Plus, ActivePure technology is the only air cleaning technology that’s received the Certified Space Technology seal from the Space Foundation.
Molekule Air: Ease of Use & Maintenance
The Molekule Air air purifier may appeal more to homeowners who want an easy-to-use purifier. It has a filter indicator that tells you when you need to replace the filters, as well as easy-to-operate controls. Plus, the operating costs are relatively low. However, Air Scrubber also boasts similar efficiency, as it’s able to run at peak efficiency for a longer period of time to reduce electricity and maintenance costs. Combined with an energy-efficient air conditioner replacement, the Air Scrubber can significantly improve indoor air quality while reducing electricity consumption.
