Now more than ever, we want better indoor air quality. When the outbreak of COVID-19 forced us to remain inside for so much longer than the norm, air quality took a starring role in home comfort. Yet even before the pandemic, concerns over air pollutants in our home and office buildings and the need for air purification continued to gain interest.
Finding a comprehensive indoor air quality device that can purify, deodorize, and neutralize the pollutants and allergens in your home or office can be a daunting task. The market is flooded with systems that claim to purify the air in your home.
Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can have a profound impact on your health and on the comfort of your home. Indoor air pollutants can have both short-term and long-term negative health results. Controlling the pollutants and bacteria in your indoor air is important to your well-being, as well as your family’s well-being.
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
There are many sources of poor indoor air quality, but here are some of the most common:
- Smoking (tobacco or vaping products)
- Pet dander
- Household cleaning products
- Excess moisture/humidity
- Dust mites and other allergens
- Certain pressed-wood products
- Not enough ventilation
- Carpet fumes
- Paint VOCs
- Wood or charcoal heat sources
What’s the Best Air Purifier for my Home or Office?
Young’s Home Comfort is proud to offer the Aerus Air Scrubber, a whole-home air purification system installed as part of your HVAC system. This simple addition to your existing system and ductwork will clean, deodorize, purify, and protect the air in your home. An Aerus Air Scrubber can destroy up to 99% of all surface contaminants, and 99.99% of airborne contaminants, including viruses, bacteria, dust, mold, and pollen. Using just 17 watts of electricity to purify 3,000 square feet, it’s possibly the best air quality system on the market.
Space-Age Equipment for Better Air Quality
The Aerus Air Scrubber is the only air cleaning system in its class recognized by the Space Foundation as Certified Space Technology. It was created in cooperation with NASA to protect the astronauts on board the International Space Station.
Unlike air purifiers, an air scrubber can remove mold, pet odors, dust, and other air pollutants through an advanced filtration system that begins with your home’s air passing through titanium-oxide coated, honeycomb filters. The air is then treated with germicidal UV lights, which output charged groups of hydrogen and oxygen, antimicrobial agents also found in nature.

Is an Air Scrubber Worth the Money?
Professional restoration companies have tested the air quality in homes before and after installing an Aerus Air Scrubber and confirmed its superb ability to greatly improve air quality and eliminate harmful contaminants.
An in-home installation of an Aerus Air Scrubber costs less than $1,000.
If your main concern is to have an air filtration system that gets rid of virtually all the nasty items in your home’s indoor air and improves your home comfort, then it’s worth the money. You might even sleep better, and what price can you put on that?
Can an Aerus Air Scrubber Eliminate the Coronavirus?
There have been no air purifiers or air scrubbers tested on COVID-19 since it is so new. We can’t claim that the Aerus Air Scrubber will eliminate such pathogens in your home, but we hope there will soon be studies that examine the potential.
