There is good news about the quality of air people breathe in Metro Manila. According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), average of particulates in the air across the metro has declined to 120 micrograms per cubic meter in 2015 from 166 micrograms in 2010. The bad news: it is still 30 micrograms higher than the standard safe level.
Indoors, there is still much pollutants to be found that can possibly affect human health overtime. Those include pollen, dust mites, mold, pet dander, and other allergens. The good news: there are air purifiers with more advanced technology that are available in the local market.
CYA Industries, Inc.—the Philippine distributor of global leading appliance brands like GE, Ariston/indesit, mabe, and Philips—is introducing new models of Blueair, an air purifier brand from Sweden that it started distributing locally in 2010.
Now, Filipinos can choose from a broader range of air purifying products across three lines: Blueair Classic, Blueair Pro, and Blueair Sense+. Tag prices are surprisingly not intimidating, starting from just P21,000 for an air purifier that could last up t at least 10 years.
“When it comes to air purification, Blueair is definitely a leader,” said CYA Industries Managing Director Franklin Chan. “That’s why we had to drop the other brand of air purifier we used to carry so we can focus exclusively in Blueair,” he revealed.
Chan shared with Tech and Lifestyle Journal six good reasons to buy and use Blueair, which is generally described in the market as the ‘Apple of air cleaners.’
1. Eliminating airborne particles in an enclosed area
Blueair has a 99.97% effectiveness in capturing all types of airborne particles that may be affecting the quality and safety of indoor air. With its combined electrostatic and mechanical system for filtration, it can filter particles to as miniscule as 0.1 micron through its less dense filter media.
2. Unique HEPASilent technology
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) technology makes air purifiers do their duties. Blueair has developed an improvement of that technology and called it HEPASilent, which cleanses the air quickly and quietly. Thus, users would not be experience the usual annoying sound that can be identified with older and other brands of air purifiers.
3. High Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) score
Blueair purifiers score high in terms of CADR based on data from the United States’ Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM). CADR is a rating standard applied to all air purifiers and is a measure of those products’ effectiveness in eliminating tobacco smoke, dust, and pollen—three of the most common air pollutants indoor.
4. Energy efficiency
Despite its effectiveness and quietness when in use, Blueair air purifiers are also noted for being energy efficient. The brand is among the first ones in the category to earn an Energy Star certification, exceeding minimum standards for efficiency.
5. Control via Wi-Fi
Blueair Sense+ is a particular model that enables users to control their air purifying machines no matter where they could be as long as they are connected online via the Blueair Friend or Bluefriend app, which can be downloaded for free and can be accessed through iOS devices and Android smartphones.
6. Good aesthetic design
Blueair air purifiers have aesthetic designs that make them ideal as interior accessories in the house, office, workstation, or play area. This is why Blueair has bagged several design awards internationally including the Best Product award for 2016 and 2017 from Plus X design awards as well as other recognitions from other prestigious award-giving bodies like Red Dot, the Excellent Swedish Design awards, and the German Design awards.
