According to statistics, at least one person in every household suffers from allergies or respiratory illnesses caused by harmful particles in the air, such as viruses, bacteria, mould, pet hair, etc. Room Air purifier is an efficient solution to reduce pollution in indoor spaces, reduce the risk of disease and provide clean air for the whole family to breathe pleasantly.

The Avera way is to improve your lifestyle, which is why we are always looking for practical solutions to contemporary challenges. A few months ago, we added an air purifier with HEPA filters to our catalogue. Today we tell you why we include it in the Avera experience and why it is essential to have one.

What is an air purifier?

Although it may not seem like it, in general, the air inside the house can be more polluted than the air outside; But if we think that a large number of pollutants, mites, bacteria, bad odours and dirt accumulate inside a home due to the lack of ventilation and natural lighting, the idea ceases to be so far-fetched. In many cases, poor air quality is the main reason why children and adults suffer from allergies or get sick easily.

Air purifiers are devices capable of filtering the air to eliminate up to 99% of pollutants in an interior space. There are different types of purifiers ideal for use in a large or small room; Their use has many advantages for the health and well-being of the whole family since by purifying the air they reduce the risk of asthma, flu and other diseases.

These devices have become a necessity in all homes, it is a complementary device to air conditioning systems or dehumidifiers. In addition to purifying the air, these devices offer better thermal and environmental comfort in any room. Thanks to their high efficiency, they become indispensable in homes where people with asthma, small children, the elderly or pets live. Start enjoying cleaner air and take care of your family using an air purifier.

How does an air purifier work?

The job of an air purifier is to remove harmful particles and pollutants present in the air of rooms or rooms. Purifiers have the ability to filter dust, pollen, mites, pet hair, mould, viruses and bacteria; In addition, they also clean the air of bad odours, smoke, humidity and heavy metal microparticles that can be present in aerosols and cleaning products.

For this, an air filtering cycle technology is used that begins by absorbing the air through a fan, then it passes through filters that retain contaminating particles and finally the air returns to the outside completely clean and free of impurities. The filtering cycle lasts only a few seconds and when used daily you can be sure that the air in your home is pure and clean.

Depending on the type of purifier, different types of absorbing agents are used, such as ozone or ultraviolet radiation, but the most widely used today and the one used by our Avera purifier is the HEPA filter or high-efficiency particulate air filter.

What are HEPA filters?

The name HEPA is an acronym for High-Efficiency Particulate Air Filter and is the type of filter with the highest holding capacity used for air purifiers. This factor is precisely one of the most important to consider when choosing an air purifier for your home or office.

This type of filter has been proven to be more than 99% efficient at trapping contaminants as small as particles less than 0.3 microns or 20 nanometres in diameter. For reference, the common flu virus, avian flu, and most bacteria found in the home are larger than this.

When purchasing an air purifier with HEPA filter it is essential to ensure that the filter is a HEPA filter and not a “HEPA Type Filter” as only the former are certified and approved for use. For its part, the second type has not been approved and is less efficient. Our air purifier has a certified HEPA filter with an efficiency rating of 99.99%.
