Q: How can such an affordable air purifier work better than expensive known brands?

A: Breathify works on the principles of simplicity and practicality. In the market, conventional air purifier have features that are not required for purification and charge a huge amount for it. Plus all the branding, market value etc. play a huge role in increasing their price. At Breathify we believe that an air purifier should only do its job of purifying the air, nothing else. There is no need of unnecessary frills on an air purifier. Breathify is made for the masses after a personal bad experience with air pollution by its founder Krrish Chawla in his early years. Built after 309 prototypes and constant testing, designing and improvement, Breathify’s ReverseAir Technology, clubbed with simple design, no-frills policy and practical usage makes Breathify the most affordable till date, while still being the most effective and also eco-friendly.

Q: How much difference does an indoor air purifier make when the outdoor is so polluted?

Q: I don't feel much air coming out of the air purifier. Is that fine?

A: Yes, Breathify Air Purifiers use Breathify’s unique ReverseAir Technology to push the air through the filter for better results, different from the industry standard. Tests conducted by us showed that even though you can’t feel the air, the purifiers clean the room properly. Explore our AQI Testing for more information.

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 10-70m², 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 4 months with 12 hours of daily usage. After that, a replacement is recommended.

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 25-80 W, equivalent to a light bulb.

Q: Can I leave doors and windows open while the air purifier is on?

A: Doors and windows need to be kept shut for optimum air purification, just like in the case of air conditioners. However, quickly opening and closing the doors to come in or go out won’t make much of a difference.
