Almost 90% of our time is spent indoors. Therefore, it’s critical that the quality of air we breathe inside our homes is of the highest quality. But research shows that indoor air can be up to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. While certain pollutants like smoke, dust, paint and animal dander can be easily identified, others like bacteria, fungi, mold spores, pollen, viruses, etc, are hard to see with the naked eye. This makes them doubly dangerous.

Poor indoor air quality can trigger allergy flare-ups, asthma attacks and worsen existing respiratory conditions.

If the air quality in your home is poor, you may experience frequent headaches, perpetual colds, as well as, chronic asthma. Other symptoms include dizziness, cough, irritation of the eyes, nose, and/or throat, runny nose, and difficulty in breathing, chest and/or abdominal pain, nausea, difficulty in sleeping and rashes on your skin.

An air purifier is a device which purifies the indoor air making it fresh and pure.

The pre-filters main function is to capture large particles such as dust, pollens, skin flakes, etc. The air first enters the pre-filter. Another feature is to preserve and extend the life of other filters that are involved in the functioning of the purifier.

This particular filter specialises in capturing and neutralising common chemicals, gases, odours and tobacco smoke.

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. HEPA filter removes at least 99.97% of all impurities in the air that are as small as 0.3 microns. HEPA filters come in different range, H11 Grade and H13 Grade are widely accepted across world.

A HEPA filter removes at least 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns. HEPA was originally developed by the Atomic Energy Commission to capture radioactive dust particles. Allergens such as pollen, animal dander, mold spores, and dust get trapped in the filter. These contaminants and particles are not able to flow back into the circulation due to high absorbent pores of the HEPA.

HEPA filter is made up of glass fibers with very tiny passage that allows the air flow to pass through the material but not much else. Since the passage through the fibers of the media are so small, you need a lot of surface area for a reasonable amount of air flow to pass through the media. Therefore, this media is always folded in an accordion or zig-zag fashion to get a lot of surface area.

  • UV filters and TiO2 filters usually work in combination to eliminate viruses and bacteria.
  • UV filters utilize a 360° blast of Ultraviolet C light, which is germicidal, meaning it can neutralise bacteria and viruses. These light rays destroy the DNA and RNA of microorganisms with an efficiency of 99.9%.

Forbes range of air purifiers indicate when the HEPA filter needs to be replaced. Forbes Air Purifiers have an in-built feature on the app that notifies you when the filters need to be replaced. Generally speaking, the lifespan of the filter is 6-12 months depending on the air quality, usage and the environmental conditions.
