It’s important to know that both air scrubbers and air purifiers do the same job of eliminating harmful substances from the air and providing you with fresh, clean, safe air to breathe. How they do it, however, is what makes them different from each other. If you’re not sure which one to get for your home, here our residential and commercial ac maintenance specialists at Air Products & Services explain the various features:
An air scrubber is an air cleaning device that sucks the air inside itself, runs it through filters and blows it back out. Basically, it sifts the air and removes dirt particles from it, like how flour is sifted through a sieve. As air flows through your ductwork system, the air scrubber continuously produces negative ions, which capture the pollutants floating in the air that are too small to be captured by your regular air filter.
If you want to install one in your home, we recommend going with the Air Scrubber by Aerus®, which is one of the best-quality indoor air products we have to offer. It uses ActivePure® Technology and is installed directly on your HVAC system ductwork. This product effectively removes air pollution, VOCs, surface contaminants, pet dander, odors and dust!
An air purifier is an air cleaning device that captures and kills contaminants within the purifier itself, and is installed inside your existing ductwork. As air recirculates through your air handler, it passes through the device.
Most air purifiers also have a HEPA filter. They filter out tiny particles as well as bacteria and remove around 99.9% of pollutants. When it’s properly installed in your HVAC system by a professional residential AC technician, this HEPA filtration system effectively cleans the air of all harmful particles before letting it in your house.
If you’re keen on having an air purifier for your home, we also offer installation services. We recommend our Infinity® Air Purifier, which uses Captures & Kills™ technology to trap up to 95% of particles in the air, then uses an electrical charge to eliminate them.
