Air purifiers for the COVID-19 Virus?Air purifiers with HEPA filters like Smart Air's can filter the COVID-19 coronavirus. Learn how HEPA air purifiers filter viruses.
What is a HEPA filter?
A HEPA filter consists of randomly aligned glass or synthetic fibers. The Sqair HEPA filter is the most important part of the purifier. This is because HEPA filters are super effective at capturing particles like viruses, bacteria, pollen, PM2.5, allergens, and more. Learn more about how they work here.
HEPA filters are simple – larger filters can clean more air. The Sqair’s HEPA filter gives you clean air in your bedroom. Sleep more easily without worrying about allergies or asthma.
What’s the lifespan of the Sqair HEPA filter?
HEPA lifespans are tricky. Purifier companies like to give lifespan numbers without proper reasoning. Clearly, the HEPA filter will not last as long in Bangladesh air as compared to Swiss air.
We estimated the lifespan of the Sqair’s HEPA filter using two methods. From the data, we recommend up to 1400 hours of use. This is roughly equal to 6 months if you use the purifier 8 hours a day.
At 2500 Takas for half a year of clean air, the Sqair offers the best prices for clean air.
Can HEPA filters capture the coronavirus?
A common concern is whether HEPA filters can filter viruses like the COVID-19 coronavirus. HEPA filters removes particles greater than or equal to 0.3 microns, but virus particles are smaller. The coronavirus measures 0.06 to 0.14 microns in diameter. Are air purifiers then powerless against viruses?
Actually, HEPA filters actually work great at capturing viruses. This is because a HEPA filter works not like a net, but through a process called diffusion. Learn more about how this works here.
