Air purifier Airfree: dust mites
What are dust mites?
Dust mites are microscopic organisms that belong to the arachnid family, representing the leading cause of respiratory allergies in adults and children.
There are thousands of species of these biological pollutants, but the ones that cause most allergic diseases live within our homes! They are dermatophagoides, or "eaters" of skin, which proliferate where there is flaking skin, and they need a dark, moist and warm environment. Therefore, places like beds, sofas, carpets and rugs are ideal for their survival and reproduction.
These pollutants eliminate a protein in their feces (Derp 1) which causes allergy by being inhaled. Thus, the greater the number of mites (or of this protein), the greater the probability of allergy. When we sit or lie down in bed, when we shake rugs or pillows, is as if we sprayed these allergens into the air ... - and, when they fall back, they are inhaled, causing allergies and triggering crises of rhinitis, asthma, bronchitis and sinusitis or conjunctivitis.
How to eliminate them?
AIRFREE® air purifiers eliminate up to 99% of dust mites allergens and help to keep the air free from other air allergens and micro-organisms, representing a great ally in improving allergy sufferers’ quality of life.
How does it work?
It drastically reduces air allergens by incinerating microorganisms. As a result, contaminated air is dragged through the Airfree® ceramic centre and destroyed at high temperatures. This air purifying cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is ensured by numerous tests.
Efficient - Tested and approved in real environments (without simulations) at the world’s best institutes. Airfree® destroys any microorganism that passes through the ceramic steriliser regardless of its dangerousness or size.
Silent – Absolutely no noise
Exclusive - Internationally patented technology and Airfree® exclusive, the only one that also reduces ozone concentration.
Economic - No costs with replacement of parts nor significant power costs because Airfree® has a consumption of only 48 W per hour.
Convenient - Switch the device on and don't worry about it, since it doesn't require maintenance nor cleaning
1. Are there any side effects?
No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® should be used in all homes and offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.
2. Does Airfree eliminate bacteria and viruses?
Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into its heated ceramic core.
3. How does Airfree destroy dust mites?
Mould reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mould dependant dust mite population. Airfree also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed by dust mite feces that trigger respiratory allergies.
4. How does Airfree eliminate fungi?
As mentioned before, Airfree eliminates airborne microorganisms included fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne spores.
5. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. The temperature inside of Aifree’s capillaries is much higher than required to incinerate them. Airfree® is your greatest ally in respiratory disease prevention.
6. Does Airfree reduce tobacco smell?
Yes, Airfree reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.
7. Does Airfree release any gas or chemical product?
No. Airfree’s sterilisation process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.
8. Does Airfree heat up a room?
No. Airfree does not noticeable increase room temperature. To have an idea 2 Airfrees plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as the presence of one adult in that same room.
9. Does Airfree provoke any change in room’s the relative humidity?
10. Does Airfree need filter replacement?
11. Does Airfree consume a lot of energy?
No. Airfree’s consumption is just 52 Watts for P150, 50 Watts for P125, 48 Watts for P80, 45 Watts for P60, 50 Watts for E125, 48 Watts for E80 , 45 Watts for E60 and 40 Watts for E40.
12. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
As all living organisms, microorganisms and their products are basically composed of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Since Airfree® reaches approx. 200º C, all the components are supposed to suffer a combustion process, which liberates carbon dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or ashes) may remain in the process. If there is some residual allergen left, we might consider that they suffer denaturation, a process resulting in loss of conformation and function. It should be noted that we are talking about reactions that occur in a microscopic level, so all these processes or by-products won’t be perceived. In this case, there is no need to worry about maintenance.
