7 Reasons Why You Need An Air Purifier
Air purifiers are a great way to clean the air. In addition to investing in your health, they can help with allergies, unpleasant smells, snoring and more.
Here are seven signs it might be time to invest in an air purifier…
1. You Can't Stop Sneezing
Pet dander, pollen, and dust are just some of the pollutants that could be floating around your house. The best purifier typically contains HEPA filters that will rid the air you breathe of these airborne allergens.
2. Your Home Smells Of Varnish And Disinfectants
Be sure to look for air purifiers that can remove VOCs, or volatile organic compounds. These harmful substances come from carpeting, adhesive, disinfectants, and varnishes. If you see formaldehyde or benzene on any of your household items’ ingredients, you are dealing with a VOC.
3. Your Air Is Stale And Stuffy
If you breathe in and the air smells bad, you might have poor quality indoor air. You can try an energy recovery ventilator, but an air purifier will guarantee that you reduce any smelly, foul odours that might be wafting through your home.
4. Dust Mites Everywhere
Have you noticed a surplus of dust building up under your bed or on the windows? Air purifiers will certainly help to reduce the amount of dust around, though you will still need to clean. Getting a decent vacuum cleaner is still important to having clean and dust-free air, but air purifiers will also help a huge amount with reducing the amount of mites that are calling your home their home as well.
5. You Suffer From A Respiratory Condition
Having a serious chest condition might be a sign that you need an air purifier. Keeping the level of household air pollution down as much as possible is critical, especially with family members who might be exposed to secondhand smoke.
6. You Have A Sick Family Member
Helping a sick family member heal is made easier with the help of a purifier. They can breathe fresher air and have better quality sleep, which will aid recovery.
Our Home Air Purifiers
The latest news on our two Solenco units, namely the CF8500 and the CF8608, is that they are the first purifiers to have been awarded the Allergy Foundation of South Africa’s Seal of Approval!
This is done by means of an advanced 5 stage purification system, that includes a Pre-filter (that removes the large airborne particles), a true HEPA filter (that removes particles from the air as small as 0.3 micron - smaller than the eye can see), a Carbon filter (that removes smells and odours), a UV-C Light and PCO (that kills germs, viruses and bacteria).
With its ability to capture and destroy bacteria and viruses, the Solenco CF8500 comes highly recommended to protect public facilities, doctor’s rooms and hospital rooms for patients. It further reduces VOCs, toxic fumes and foul odours through the use of the activated carbon filter. This unit will cover a small room up to 40m2.
The big brother of the CF8500 is the Solenco CF8608. With its innovative Swiss design, the Solenco CF8608 Air Purifier offers high air filtration efficiency capturing airborne particles including allergens, pollen, dust, smoke and pet dander. This is done by means by a five stage purification system, which includes a Pre-filter, True HEPA filter, Carbon filter, Ionizer, UVC Lamp and PCO.
The CF8608 boasts a dust sensor to indicate the indoor air quality and by means of an auto-function further automatically adjusts the fan speed accordingly. However you can manually adjust the speed settings should you wish.
