Air Purifiers FAQ

What is an air purifier?

An air purifier, air filter or air cleaner is a device which removes contaminants from the air in a room to improve your indoor air quality. These air purifiers are beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics, and at reducing or eliminating second-hand tobacco smoke. These airborne contaminants include allergens, pollen, dust mites, mould spores, pet hair or dander and dust.

How do I know if my air purifier is working?

There are a few ways in which you can tell if your air purifier is working:

  1. Sight- you will be able to see if your air purifier is working well if you see hair, dust or the HEPA filter changes colour from white to a dark grey. 
  2. Smell- The Solenco air purifiers come with a carbon filter which removes smells, smoke and VOC”s so these smells will be eliminated or removed with an effective air purifier. 
  3. Air Monitor- the Solenco CF8608 comes with an air quality sensor which continuously measures the air quality and displays the results to you through the display panel.

How do HEPA Air Purifiers work?

HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air.

It works is by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites and tobacco smoke. True HEPA filters remove particles from the air as small as 0.3 microns – smaller than the eye can see. 

What is the best air purifier for my baby?

Babies or small children often suffer from asthma, allergies or frequent congestion brought on from a cold virus. It is therefore imperative to maintain a clean air environment in their bedroom or house to help alleviate such symptoms. Your baby will sleep better and be more comfortable throughout the night which will result in you sleeping sounder and feel rested for your new day.

We suggest that the most ideal nursery air purifier is the Solenco CF8500 Air Purifier. This is ideal as it will cover your typical nursery size of 20m2 very effectively, allowing for four air changes per hour. The air purifier also comes with night mode where the fan speed is reduced and all lights are turned off to ensure a peaceful sleep is had by your baby.

What is the best air purifier for a smokers home?

The Solenco CF8500 and Solenco CF8608 air puriifers both come with activated cabon filters as part of their multi filtration air cleaning system. Activated Carbon filters absorb unpleasant smells and can particularly benefit people who suffer allergies or aggravation from polluted air, including second hand smoke. If you are or live with a smoker, using an activated carbon filter in your home air purifier will provide you with benefits to your respiratory health.

Is UV-C Light safe in an air purifier?

The UVC light is encased in the unit so there is no exposure to human skin at all. The Solenco air purifiers come with a safety feature that turns the unit off if the front cover is removed to get access to the filters. The UV-C light is a form of Ultaviolet Germicidal irradiation which is a disinfection method which will kill or inactivate microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, moulds and other pathogens.

How do I replace my filters in my air purifier?

The Solenco CF8500 and CF8608 Air Purifier models come with a replace filter light. These filters last between 6-12 months depending on the environment in which they operate. However, you can extend their life if you vacuum the filters a couple times a month.

What air purifier should I get based on my allergy or allergies?

The Solenco range of air purifiers offers a multifiltration system so if you are allergic to anything below, one of our filters will capture it.

Pre-filter – large airborne particles such as Pet Dander

HEPA filter – captures particles larger than 0.3 microns in size which is most of the particles that are in the air.  If you think that a human hair is 40+ microns in size it gives you an idea of just how small 0.3 microns is.

A HEPA filter will capture particles that cause allergies like:

  • Pollen Allergy
  • Mould Spores Allergy
  • Dust Mites Allergy
  • Some Bacteria and viruses Allergy
  • Other airborne allergens

Enhanced Activated Charcoal filter – the next line of defence removes those things that you can smell:

  • Smoke
  • Chemical fumes
  • VOCs
  • Numerous random smells including dog and cat odour

Ultra Violet Light (UV-C) – is a germicidal light, meaning that it can destroy viruses and bacteria whenever it encounters them.

  • Germs
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Mould

Should my windows and doors be closed when using an air purifier?

The short answer is YES, for the best and quickest results keep doors and windows shut however outside pollution wont necessarily come into the space automatically, but might be brought in through the exchange of air in the space when windows and doors are open.

Practically, when you are at home or in the office, it wont be a major train smash to open windows and doors, however you must be aware of the above.

The solution though is to keep the air purifier working continuously – it wont make a huge difference to the energy consumption.
