Hospital grade HEPA13 filter to eliminate 99.97% of harmful air pollutants like allergens, dust, pet fur, bacteria & viruses.
"As simple as plug it in and on it. You can feel that the air is cleaner. My kids slept well too at night and lesser sinus in the morning. If you have pets, this is also good, no funny smell too." - Tylor J.
The Pre-filter layer uses a patented filter fabric to effectively sieve out the largest particles first from the air it purifies—such as hair, dust, lint, and animal fur.
These extremely porous pieces of charcoal that come in a granular or powdered block form absorbs air contaminants. It neutralises odors in the air you don't want to inhale such as tobacco smoke, foul smell from pets, cooking smells, etc.
H13 True HEPA Filter
It traps 99.97% of all airborne contaminants including viruses and bacteria that are 0.3 μm in diameter. Even hospitals use the same filter grade to decontaminate their rooms. It also blocks allergens such as pollen, animal dander, dust mites, and more.
UV technology uses UV light to fully eradicates airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria, viruses and other tiny harmful microbes in the air. UV is also used for germicidal use in hospitals to improve indoor air quality for residential HVAC systems.
Ionic technology on the other hand works by creating negative ions using electricity and then releasing them into the air. These negative ions attract particles in the room, such as dust, bacteria, pollen, smoke, and other allergens.
The UV technology is by far the superior solution. It is a newer and cleaner technology that eliminates harmful air particles rather than just contain them. UV also eliminates harmful particles at a much faster rate, generally in seconds, as compared to over an hour for Ionic technology.
One of the myths about air purifiers is that an air-conditioned room doesn’t need an air purifier. In reality, air conditioning usually worsens indoor air quality rather than improve it. Air conditioning works by circulating already present air in the room. This is stale and polluted indoor air. This means for air conditioning to work, it has to trap indoor contaminants. Air quality decreases over time with air conditioning.
There have been several studies that suggest air purifiers can be helpful for managing sinus symptoms. For example, a study conducted by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology found that using air purifiers can reduce symptoms in individuals with allergic rhinitis, which includes sinus symptoms.
Another study published in the Journal of Asthma and Allergy showed that air purifiers can effectively reduce indoor air pollution and improve respiratory symptoms, including those associated with sinus issues. In conclusion, there are scientific evidence to support the use of air purifiers like the Sterra Moon Air Purifier for managing sinus symptoms.
