Air Filtering and Purification
Many of us spend the majority of our time indoors, which is why an air cleaner is so important. Indoor air can be almost 100 times more polluted than the air outside! This can be detrimental if you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever, or other breathing difficulties. Luckily, there is an air cleaner that can help you.
Air scrubbers install right into your HVAC system and go to work when your system is running. This air cleaner will actually clean your air while you sleep! Air scrubbers utilize UV light waves to create molecules that are then sent throughout your home to clean and disinfect. If only they could do all of your chores!
The disinfecting molecules reduce or eliminate:
- air pollutants,
- cigarette smell,
- chemical odors,
- AND 99% of germs and viruses!
Plus, it actually extends the life of your HVAC system

How Does ActivePure Technology Work?
Units with ActivePure Technology pull free oxygen and water molecules in the air through ActivePure’s patented honeycomb matrix. The technology creates powerful oxidizers, known as ActivePure Molecules, that are then released back into the room, where they seek and destroy DNA and RNA viruses including SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus), Swine Flu (H1N1), Avian Bird Flu (H5N8), Hepatitis A (HAV) and MS2 bacteriophage, regardless of their size, on surfaces and in the air.
The ActivePure Technology found in the Air Scrubber is the safest, fastest, and most powerful surface and air-purification technology available that minimizes recontamination and cross-contamination in real-time without the use of chemicals or ozone.

Most heating and cooling systems still use a basic air cleaner. At first, these filters were designed to protect the equipment, but not the people served by the equipment. On average, one of these air filters is only capable of removing 3–5% of the particles that pass through it. The air we breathe in our homes is loaded with pollutants like pollen, lung-damaging dust, pet hair, dander, dust mites, tobacco smoke, spores, disease-causing bacteria, and viruses. Visually you can see, in a beam of sunlight, what represents only a fraction of the millions of airborne contaminants inside your home.
There Is An Air Filter That Is Right For You
Air filters have been greatly improved in recent years. There are several types available in various efficiencies. They can help you filter the air in your home. Modern air filters can help improve your health and comfort by keeping your entire home filter. And they can help to protect your furnishings and help save you time and the aggravation of continuous dusting and cleaning. For this reason, we recommend adding sophisticated air filtration to your existing systems.
Whole house air filtration offers these key benefits to your family and home:
Health: It’s the particles you can’t see that you need to worry about. This includes virus-sized particles and bacteria, allergens, respirable dust, and other airborne contaminants. A whole-house air filter can provide relief, up to 40 times more efficiently than standard filters, from these irritants.
Cleanliness: Installing a whole-home air cleaning system means you may need to dust less. These systems help keep your home and its contents cleaner and more comfortable environment.

New Jersey’s Climate Impacts Your Indoor Air Quality
Your indoor air quality goes up or down depending on a number of factors, including climate, weather, and other environmental aspects. New Jersey’s climate in particular can pose a few challenges for air quality. The climate across the state ranges from humid subtropical in the south to humid continental in the north. Depending on where you live and the season, you might experience temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit to more than 100 degrees.
Humidity and precipitation create the biggest effects on your air quality in New Jersey. Heavy snowstorms in winter and high humidity in summer make it difficult to manage humidity levels inside your home. The state receives about 40 to 50 inches of precipitation each year. Without effective filtering and moisture control, your home may accumulate mold or mildew.
If you want to avoid respiratory problems like asthma, or if you want to minimize your symptoms of existing respiratory illnesses, you should consider an air cleaning service. Air filters and air purification systems work with your home’s HVAC system, providing a simple way to give you cleaner air and help members of your household feel healthier.
Frequently Asked Questions
What distinguishes air cleaners and air filters?
At first, air cleaners worked by removing certain particles that damage equipment. They were not very effective at improving indoor air quality generally. These days, you can buy air filters and air cleaners that trap dust, pollen, pet dander, pathogens, and more. When you consider air filter replacement, look at the differences in products to determine which one will work best for you.
What causes poor indoor air quality?
Your home’s indoor air quality depends on the ventilation system and the contaminants that enter the indoor space. Homes often have worse air quality than you would notice outside, due to common sources such as dust accumulation, cooking byproducts, high humidity, cleaning products, and mold. Our air cleaning companies can help you find the causes and mitigate them.
How can I tell if my home needs air cleaning?
You can usually feel a change in your home when the air quality drops. Look for common signs, such as foul odors that never seem to go away, rooms that feel stuffy or smell stale, or a sudden increase in respiratory symptoms. If you notice any of these, you should consider requesting air scrubber service.
How does air cleaning benefit my home?
Your indoor air quality affects the way you feel and the cleanliness of your home. Poor indoor air quality makes it harder for you to clean your home and keep it comfortable. Low air quality can also contribute to headaches, stuffy noses, exhaustion, and more.
Why should I consider adding whole-house filtration to my home?
Air filter service helps your entire home to feel better and run more effectively. When you schedule a whole-house air filter installation, we can show you how the right filter can minimize dust buildup, reduce common allergens, and improve your energy efficiency.
How does a UV germicidal lamp work?
Although UV germicidal lamp technology may seem new, it’s been an important industrial tool for decades. The lamps work by using ultraviolet rays to damage the DNA so that pathogens cannot replicate. This technology can help you eliminate bacteria, mold, and viruses that cause illness.
When should I consider installing a UV germicidal lamp?
If you struggle to manage respiratory illnesses like asthma or allergies, or if your home has low indoor air quality due to mold and other contaminants, you may want to consider using a UV germicidal lamp. These lamps can improve your indoor air quality and reduce your symptoms.
