Your home should be a place where you are protected from the dangers that lurk outside. However, if your house has a low indoor air quality, then you're standing in harm's way. Rather than breathing in a poor air quality, look to improve it.
Where Do Pollutants Come From?
Unfortunately, pollutants and contaminants are plentiful and can come from a wide range of natural places and man-made products. When there's an excessive amount in your home, the air quality will lower and can have side effects that can negatively affect your health.
- Pet Dander
- Volatile Organic Compounds (Harsh chemicals found in many products)
- Smoke (Cigarettes or Cooking)
- Pollen, Outdoor Allergens, etc.
A Solution to Breathe Healthy Air
Having a high-quality air filter that is changed regularly will help reduce pollutants in your home, but that's only the first step. In addition to your air filter you should install an ActivTek Air Scrubber. This advanced unit is installed onto your HVAC unit and will help remove 99.99% of surface contaminants and 90% of airborne contaminants. Breathing the cleanest air possible is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
Who Should Use This?
The ActivTek Air Scrubber should be installed in every home's HVAC system so everyone can breathe high-quality air. However, those with pets, asthma, allergies, respiratory diseases, or sensitivity to certain pollutants would benefit most. Luckily, this piece of equipment can be installed on any HVAC unit, no matter if it's at home or work.
