Meet The Air Scrubber


Allergy sufferers, we know this time of year can be hard on you. With all of the pollen about to be released into the air, combined with the dust buildup from the winter months indoors, the runny noses, watering eyes, and overall feeling of malaise isn’t a lot of fun. But worry not – Brown Heating and Cooling has a new tool for bringing comfort to your home: the Air Scrubber!

The ducts in your home are the perfect place for dust, dirt and allergens to collect. Even with routine filter changes, the ducts become dirty – you can delay the problem, but there’s no great way to eliminate it entirely. Brown makes it our mission to make sure your ducts are as clean as they can be, so when you call us out to your home, we want to bring the latest and greatest tools with us. The Air Scrubber is our latest addition to our arsenal, and it creates some amazing results, both in commercial and residential buildings.

We use the Air Scrubber with our Roto Brush to bring a one-two punch to dust, dirt, and grime that builds up inside your ducts (and then blows throughout your house…gross). Our Roto Brush actually goes through the duct system, rotating to loosen debris build up within the air ducts. That’s when the Air Scrubber comes into play, using a filtration system to suck up the smoke, fumes, mold spores, dust, and particles, and clear them from the air. The result is clean air, free of harmful particulate matter, and a relief for allergy sufferers.

Once the Air Scrubber arrived at our office, we couldn’t wait to give it a try, so we decided to clean out the vents on our 55-year old building. We can’t believe the difference it made! Well, we can…but it’s always neat to see these tools in action. We’re all breathing a little bit better in the office these days.

If you’re considering getting your air ducts cleaned, you should note that it’s a process recommended by the EPA especially in cases of a recent move, building remodel, or especially dirty ductwork. One way to tell if your vents need cleaning is by checking your filter on a regular basis – if you notice that it’s collecting more and more dirt, and you’re having to replace it more often, it’s a good sign that it might be time for a major spring cleaning.
