Air Purifier FAQs

How does an air purifier work?

Air purifiers work by drawing in air from your environment, filtering it through various types of filters to remove pollutants such as dust, pollen, and bacteria, and then circulating the clean air back into the room.

Do I need an air purifier for every room?

It depends on the size of the air purifier and the room. Each air purifier has a recommended room size it can effectively clean. Consider getting additional units to cover rooms where people spend a lot of time.

How often should I replace the HEPA Filter?

This largely depends on the model, usage and quality of the air. Typically filters are replaced every 6-12 months. It's important to check as some air purifier filters can have very short lifespans! We've included expected filter lifespans on all of our air purifier product pages.

Can air purifiers help with allergies or asthma?

Yes, air purifiers can help reduce allergens in the air like dust, pet dander, and pollen, which may help alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms. However make sure you don't purchase an air purifier with an ioniser, as these can exacerbate asthma symptoms. None of our air purifiers contain ionisers.

Are air purifiers noisy?

The noise level of an air purifier depends on the model and its fan speed. There is a huge difference between the quietest and loudest air purifiers in NZ. Check the noise level in decibels on product listings, we recommend purchasing products under 55dB. All our air purifiers are between 43 and 53dB on maximum fan speed.

Air Quality Monitor FAQs

Why do I need an air quality monitor?

Air quality monitors help identify pollutants in your indoor environment. This can help you take steps to improve your air quality, potentially alleviating allergies and other health concerns.

What does an air quality monitor measure?

These devices can measure various factors including particle pollution (PM2.5), VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), CO2 levels, humidity, and temperature.

Can I move my air quality monitor from room to room?

Yes, our air quality monitors are portable and can be moved around to test air quality in different areas of your home.

How accurate are air quality monitors?

We have chosen our air quality monitors due to their very high level of accuracy. Generally, air quality monitors will be much more accurate than the air quality sensors found on some air purifiers.
