Eureka Forbes Aeroguard
Compact But Extremely Usable
The Eureka air purifier is designed specifically for small rooms. This tiny device has all the basic features to make the air in your house or office clean.
At the first stage of cleaning (Active 10 X pre filter), it removes dust, dirt, and dead skin cells. At the second stage (Active Nano), the device kills up to 99.9% germs and bacteria. Finally, Advanced HEPA catches the smallest particles of up to 0.3 microns. We would like to point out that the purifier features 360º intake system to provide you with the cleanest air ever.
Owing to the ionisation function, the device saturates the air with negative ions and the necessary amount of oxygen. Plus, it has one more handy function - it can be used as a portable lighting device producing the soft and relaxing glow.
Beautiful in Its Simplicity
The Kent purifier is a very stylish, beautiful, and powerful device that will make the atmosphere in your home as comfortable as possible. It is good for rooms of up to 27 square meters (filtration rate is 180 m3/h). It weighs only 5 kg, so you can easily move it from one room to another if needed.
The appliance purifies the air in two steps. Thanks to HEPA Technology, it effectively removes the smallest contaminants from the air. Then the carbon filter eliminates larger particles and nasty odours.
You will be always aware of the air quality in your house, as a special analyser continuously monitors it. The device also features a built-in 8-hour timer for pre-programming.
The great news is that it has an ioniser that refreshes the air and eliminates foul smells.
Filters and Filtered Substances
The Honeywell 50250 Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier contains a HEPA filter, which captivates 99.97% of pollutants. In other words, it removes even the smallest dust particles from the air. It is the best way to prevent the emergence of allergy. An advantage is that it is possible to vacuum this filter. So, if you clean it on a regular basis, you will prolong its service time. And how does the purifier work? The carbon pre-filter absorbs the odour owing to special carbon granules. Thus, your apartment can be easily freed from nasty volatile organic compounds. All in all, if you locate this filter in the kitchen or cabinet (where people usually smoke), you can be sure that all these nasty odours will be eliminated.
Coverage Area and Noise Level
The Honeywell Air Purifier can effectively purify space up to 36 m². It is a significant advantage given that we've got a household air purifier on hands. Such an outstanding efficiency is achieved thanks to its unique round shape. What is more, the device produces the noise of 35 dB while running at its lowest speed. This noise is equivalent to the sound of human muffled conversation. And even while running at its maximum speed, the device does not cause discomfort to people. Nevertheless, it will be better to turn it off in the nighttime.
Control and Functionality System
This electronic air purifier has a mechanical operation system. It has 3 speeds: low, medium and high. Hence, the consumers have an opportunity to select the optimal speed for various kinds of cleaning. The round shape of this air purifier provides a 360-degree air intake and output, evenly distributing the fresh air. Another benefit is that its electronic indicator will always inform you about the necessity to change the filter. To conclude, it should be mentioned that there is no sense in locating this air purifier near the wall.

What Is an Air Purifier?
The problem of air pollution is very acute nowadays because human health is influenced by street dust, car exhaust gas and other harmful contaminants. Such devices as air purifiers were invented to protect people not only from the negative impact of the above components but also from pet dander, harmful bacteria, pollen, fungi and various residential odours. The air purifier systems operate in a simple way - they consist of a set of filters that provide various degrees of cleaning and a fan which pulls in air for cleaning.
Consumers should keep in mind that residential air purifiers neither drain nor humidify the air. For these purposes, it is advisable to consider an air humidifier or air washer.
