Q: How much difference does an indoor air purifier make when the outdoor is so polluted?
A: At an average, we spend close to 75% of our time indoors (sleeping, reading, working etc). Young and old people spend even more time indoors. Our air purifiers are designed to enhance the quality of air indoors, so that your family is protected and you breathe clean as much as possible.
Q: How do I know if I have an indoor air quality problem ?
A: The EPA suggests monitoring your health effects after a change in your surroundings. For example, if you have new health problems after moving, remodeling, refurnishing, or a performing pesticide application, this could be an indicator of an indoor air quality problem. Another way is to identify potential sources of pollution, such as toxic household cleaning products, tobacco smoke, pets, pressed-wood products, combustible heaters, and many more. Also, identify areas of your home that may have poor ventilation. Look for smelly or stuffy air, condensation on walls or windows, or mold growth around your home. If you are still unsure, contact your local health department to find professionals to help you solve and identify your indoor air quality problems. AQI meters also determine the PM 2.5 content in the air.
Q: Where should I place my air purifier?
A: The BREATHIFY™ air purifier is designed to purify an area of 20-25m², so naturally, it’s best to place an air purifier in the room you spend the majority of your time in (bedroom). However, you may also spend a bulk of your time in a home office or a living area with your family.
Q: How much maintenance is required for the air filters ?
A: The air filters will fully function till a usage of 12 months with 6-8 hours of daily usage. After that, a replacement is recommended. You can buy filters here.
Q: What does CADR stand for?
A: This acronym represents an important measurement for air purifiers. CADR stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate. It indicates the volume of filtered air delivered by an air purifier. The CADR value according to AHAM is two-thirds the size of your room in square feet. Our air purifiers work for 200-250 sq. feet, which is the average size of the room with a CADR value of 175.
Q: What is a micron ?
A: Short for micrometer, a micron is one-thousandth of a millimeter (0.001mm). Microns are used to measure airborne particle sizes and are invisible to the naked eye. The HEPA filters in our air purifiers remove upto 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 micron.
Q: How long should I run my air purifier ?
A: The BREATHIFY™ air purifier takes 2 hours to reduce the PM 2.5 levels from 150 (very polluted) to 25 (clean). Still, constant running is required to maintain that environment. It only takes power of 40 W, equivalent to a light bulb.
