Air Purifier 20 – What I Love About It
This is the big ol’ uncle of my very first Air Purifier.
InovaAir have always designed their products for those 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.
This beauty is on wheels, so you unless you are going to lug it up and down the stairs, its weight should be no barrier. Note, it does have sturdy handles on it, anyway.
This is a very efficient unit that has excellent filtration. Apart from True HEPA filtration (down to 0.3 microns), it contains 6 kg 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. 🙂
