The World Health Organization states that 9/10 people breathe air that contains high levels of contaminants. Shockingly, outdoor and indoor air pollution leads to 7 million premature deaths each year. It’s no wonder then that the residential air purifier market in the US was valued at $793.8 million in 2021.
There’s no doubt about it – air purification systems can help to reduce our exposure to harmful pollutants. This is especially important because most of us spend the majority of our time indoors. But there are some surprising things about air purifiers that you probably don’t know about.
Let’s take a closer look at how air purification systems work and why filterless air purifiers are the way forward.
Air Purifiers All Need Filters… Don’t They?
Everybody knows that air purifiers work by sucking air through filters. That’s how they remove contaminants and on some level, that’s how they all work. Well, that’s mostly true, but it’s not always true.
Most air purifiers use what’s called a mechanical filter. That means some kind of physical barrier that air is forced through. The idea is that the contaminants get caught in the filter and you breathe cleaner air.
For a number of years, the gold standard has been a HEPA air purifier. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. It uses an incredibly fine mesh to remove:
- Animal hair
- Dust mites
- Pollutants in smoke
They can be very effective, but there’s a snag. Filters don’t last forever. You need to keep replacing them to get the benefit of your air purifier.
That comes at a cost. You could spend hundreds of dollars on filters in the lifetime of the air purifier. And it also relies on you to remember to replace them regularly.
Thankfully, there is now another way: filterless air purifiers from Airfree.
How Filterless Air Purifiers Work
Airfree has developed a range of air purifiers that work by ‘boiling’ the air to remove pathogens and pollutants. This exclusive technology is called the TSS system.
Air is drawn into the purifier through the intake at the bottom of the machine. While the air is in the ceramic core, it is exposed to 400°F for long enough to sterilize it. The clean air then passes over a cooling plate before returning to the environment.
This technology is able to eliminate:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander allergens
At the moment, the question on everybody’s lips is, is there an air purifier for COVID? We’re delighted to let you know that scientific testing has proven that the Airfree TSS technology is able to destroy the coronavirus.
Like other viruses, COVID-19 is heat sensitive. By exposing it to 400°F heat, it can be eliminated from contaminated air. Of course, no air purifier can provide complete protection. It is still possible to inhale the virus before the air has passed through the Airfree air purifier.
Air Purifiers Can Be Beautiful
When you’re shopping for an air purifier, you’re probably focused on performance and cost. We usually accept that, like an air conditioner and other appliances, it’s not going to do anything to enhance the beauty of the room.
But the best air purifiers combine esthetics and functionality. If you get an Airfree air purifier with a filter, you get a small, sleek, and stylish addition to your home. They’re designed with modern living in mind and they don’t have bulky grills and vents or other unattractive features.
With Airfree, good looks do not mean poor performance. Airfree has removed the air filters, and the powerful TSS technology fits in a small space. The air purifiers are designed to be unobtrusive yet stylish, allowing them to blend in with any surroundings.

They’re also light and portable, perfect if you want to use it in your home office during the day and then take it through to your bedroom for a better night’s sleep.
Not All Air Purifiers Are Noisy
When you think about the sound of an air purifier, what comes to your mind?
Perhaps you can hear that persistent hum. Something akin to the throaty gurgle of a reliable but noisy diesel engine. Maybe you think that’s just the price you’ve got to pay for clean air.
The fact is, it doesn’t have to be that way. The noise of an air purifier comes from fans sucking the air through the filters. This generates a lot of noise.
The solution? Remove the filters.
Airfree has done just that and developed an air purifier for dust and more that is practically silent. There’s no need to endure the torturous hum of a noisy air purifier any longer. Simply plug it in and let it get to work.
This opens up so many possibilities for where you use your air purifier. Maybe before you couldn’t bear to have it on at night. Now you can enjoy fresh, clean air all through the night without being disturbed.
They’re also ideal for your baby’s nursery. There’s no chance of them being disturbed by the Airfree Babyair. All they’ll get is the benefit of breathing unpolluted air while they sleep.
The Babyair also has the added bonus of a unique stars night light projection, perfect for creating a soothing and restful environment for your little one.
