Spring in Arizona can be lovely—unless you’re one of the thousands in the state who suffer from seasonal allergies. The wind and dry air combines with everything from wildflowers and desert blooms to pet dander from your furry companions living in your own home to wreak havoc on your body.
If you suffer from pollen or pet allergies, you’ve probably wondered if an air scrubber could help. The short answer is yes.
Air scrubbers are a great tool for improving indoor air quality, reducing allergy symptoms and preventing you from getting sick often.
In this blog, we’ll explain the two main benefits of an air scrubber:
- Removing contaminants from your indoor air
- Easy ongoing maintenance

Benefit #1: Air scrubbers remove indoor air contaminants
Whole-home air scrubbers can remove contaminants like mold spores, pollen, dust and fungi that could aggravate respiratory problems (e.g. allergies) from your home’s air. Scrubbers can also disinfect your air, improving your overall indoor air quality and preventing allergies.
For example, if you have pet or pollen allergies, a popular solution is to install an air scrubber with ActivePure technology. Using a honeycomb matrix to filter pollutants, it does a terrific job of removing pet odors, pet dander and pollen. It works by using the scrubber’s honeycomb matrix to filter the indoor air for said pollutants. After the scrubber is done filtering out pollutants, a strong UV germicidal lamp inside the system then sterilizes the indoor air.
Certain air scrubbers can even reduce the odds of you getting sick. If you have respiratory problems or live in conditions that put strain on your respiratory system, air scrubbers can help by filtering out small contaminants in the air (e.g. viruses that cause colds, strep throat, staph infections, etc.). This reduces the stress on your body, thereby improving your ability to fight off an illness.
Below are a few situations where an air scrubber could improve your indoor air quality and, in turn, your health and comfort:
- You live in a high-pollution area (like Arizona)
- You have allergies or asthma—no matter how mild
- You’re prone to sore throats or bronchitis
- You live with a smoker
- You’re allergic to pet dander but live with a pet
If any of the above situations apply to you, installing an air scrubber could help relieve your respiratory system, reduce your allergy symptoms and mitigate your risk of getting sick from a virus.
Benefit #2: Easy maintenance
Beyond being an excellent way to improve your indoor air, another benefit that comes with installing an air scrubber is how easy the system is to maintain.
There is practically zero upkeep as air scrubbers don’t have components that need regular replacement. Designed to live within your existing HVAC system, after installation it’s essentially “set it and forget it.” For example, when an air scrubber with ActivePure technology is installed in your air ducts, it will automatically activate each time your AC kicks on. No manual operation is necessary.
