It’s amazing to think that 90% of modern life is spent indoors. It’s no wonder that when the quality of indoor air is poor, our health suffers. That’s why many of us now turn to air purifiers to make our homes and workplaces healthier and more pleasant places to be.
Traditional air purifiers are effective. HEPA filters can remove up to 99.97% of air pollutants over 0.3 microns in size from the air. However, they rely on the user buying and replacing the air filters on an ongoing basis.
Air purifier maintenance can be a drag, not to mention expensive. Imagine if there was an air purifier that never needed a filter change. Enter the filter-free air purifier from Airfree!
Let’s take a closer look at everything you need to know about how air purifiers work and why you should choose an Airfree 0% filter air purifier.
How Air Purifiers Work
Most air purifiers work in pretty much the same way. A fan sucks air into the machine and forces it through some kind of filter. Filters can be made of paper, fiberglass, or mesh.
The goal is to eliminate as many pollutants as possible, allowing you to breathe cleaner air. Common air pollution sources include:
- Automobile emissions
- Pollution from industry, power plants, oil refineries
- Natural sources, such as pet dander, dust, wildfires
- Agricultural pollution
The bottom line is that wherever you live, you’ll be breathing in some kind of air pollution. According to the World Health Organization, this can cause negative health outcomes, including:
- Respiratory infections
- Heart disease
- Lung cancer
Traditional Air Purifiers Rely on Filters
The filters used in traditional air purifiers can catch a wide range of pollutants. The most advanced filters are known as high-efficiency particulate air filters – or HEPA filters. These pleated filters can capture almost all pollutants and come with a MERV rating.
The higher the MERV rating, the better the filter is at trapping pollutants.
The snag with all these filters is that they need to be maintained meticulously. Some filters are washable but these do not tend to be the most effective. This means that you need to replace disposable filters regularly – and that can run the average family up to $100 per year.
How Airfree Air Purifiers Work
Airfree has used some outside-the-box thinking to tackle the issue of air purification.
Airfree has done away with mechanical filters. The Airfree air purifier features a unique air cleaning system.
Air goes through a heating process. This sterilizes the air and returns it to the environment. No filter, no mess, and no need for air purifier maintenance.
Does It Really Clean the Air?
A little skepticism is natural – can it really be as effective at removing air pollutants as a regular air purifier?
Yes, it can! A filter-free air purifier from Airfree will eliminate:
- Dust mites
- Allergens from animal hair
It does this by drawing air into a sterilization unit. Once inside, the air is heated to 400°F for enough time to sterilize it. It’s the same concept as boiling water to clean it.
After being sterilized, the air passes over a cooling plate so that cool, clean air is returned to the environment. No ions are released in the process.
Some ionizing air purifiers that don’t use filters produce ozone. Ozone is known to cause breathing difficulties, worsen asthma, and even cause permanent lung damage. Does Airfree generate ozone?
No, Airfree air purifiers do not produce ozone. In fact, they eliminate ozone. They quietly work away destroying these invisible pollutants and allowing you to breathe clean air.
