How To Improve Your Indoor Air Quality in 2021

By: Jason Gassmann, President | May 12, 2021

These days, we’re all more conscious about protecting ourselves and keeping our loved ones healthy — and that means taking precautions when we’re out and about, like washing hands, using hand sanitizer, distancing and wearing masks. But what about when you’re in your own home?

Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

We tend to think of our homes as safe zones, but just how healthy is the air you’re breathing? Modern homes are built tighter, better sealed and more insulated than ever before. While this helps with energy efficiency, it has a negative effect on indoor air quality (IAQ). In fact, the EPA estimates that the air inside of your home is up to five times more polluted than the air outdoors. Luckily, there are a number of HVAC-related things you can do to improve your IAQ in 2021.

  1. Get in the habit of changing your air filters regularly.
  2. Have your HVAC ducts inspected regularly and cleaned as needed.
  3. Enlist the help of products, like air purifiers.

Air Purifiers in a Pandemic

Air purification systems are a great way to improve the IAQ of your home, and while there are a number of quality systems out there, there is one that might stand above the rest during this pandemic.

Like other air purifiers, the Aerus® Air Scrubber protects your home and your family from dust, germs, odors and pet dander. What sets it apart is its use of NASA-based ActivePure® Technology — a technology scientifically proven to reduce up to 99.98% of airborne and surface contaminants and allergens, including:

  • Swine Flu (H1N1)
  • Avian Bird Flu (H5N8)
  • Hepatitis A (HAV)
  • MS2 bacteriophage

The Aerus Air Scrubber installs right into your HVAC duct system and is ideal for homes, offices, restaurants, daycares, etc.

Air Scrubbers in Ankeny

COVID-19 has forced businesses everywhere to temporarily close and take steps to create a safe environment — businesses like CJM Financial and Advanced Family Dentistry of Ankeny.

To prepare the CJM Financial building for the staff’s return after months of remote working, we installed two Aerus Air Scrubbers in their HVAC duct system. In addition to improving air quality, the CJM team arranged for staff to be more spread out and work in cubicles with tall glass walls.

Advanced Family Dentistry also temporarily closed their doors to assess how best to proceed. To create a safe and sanitary environment for patients and employees, we installed activTek INDUCT 2000 Air Scrubbers, E HEPA aerosol vacuums and air purification units.
