Air Purifier E8 – What I Love About It
This is the newer model of my very first Air Purifier. I always felt that it was designed for people who are chemically sensitive – as there is minimal plastic (just the knobs and switches). This makes the off-gassing time far less. Instead of plastic casing, it is powder coated steel – which is long-wearing and durable.
With the filters installed, the Air Purifier E8 is a heavy unit to lift… but unless you are going up and down stairs, you won’t need to as it is on castors/wheels. 🙂
This is a very efficient unit that has excellent filtration – which is rarely seen in such a small air purifier. Apart from True HEPA filtration (down to 0.3 microns), it contains 2.5kg of activated carbon.
The electrostatic pre-filter is ideal as it protects the unit.
*NOTE I do not like electrostatic air purifiers, as they charge particles in the air, which causes them to stick together and may be small enough to get into the lungs.
I DO like an electrostatic pre-filter as it is more likely to capture particles, dust, dander, and so on… preserving this great investment.
There is no smart phone app, so it won’t contribute to electrosmog! YES!!!! Another plus. 🙂
