Why doesn't AIR use HEPA filters?
Updated: Mar 15, 2022
Aside from the very important fact that HEPA will only filter to 0.3 microns and the viruses and bacteria that we are all interested in getting rid of are alot smaller than that (0.06 microns and smaller). One of the other reasons we actively chose not to use HEPA when we set out to design AIR, was that as a clean air technology company, whilst using the best technology available to keep the air you breathe sanitised, at the same time we wanted to look after our planet by ensuring that our products are designed to be 100% recyclable.
AIR doesn't rely upon costly non-recyclable HEPA filters to attain its award winning 99.999% efficacy against ALL viruses, bacteria, molds and fungi.
No, a HEPA filter from a purifier can’t be recycled. All that gunk you’re not breathing in has to go somewhere—and it’s likely heading to a landfill.
In the pursuit of 'clean air', wouldn't you rather support the environment that you and your loved ones live in rather than contribute to landfill?
