Allergy UK Approved Air Purifier
Changing the way we buy air purifiers
With the new MeacoClean air purifiers we are trying to change the way Britain looks at air purifiers and how they are sold. There is no doubt that air purifiers can help allergy sufferers but all too often people buy the wrong machine and end up frustrated. With the MeacoClean programme we are looking to make selecting the correct air purifier easy, just in the same way we have with dehumidifiers.
First Check your Allergy
To select the correct air purifier you need to know two things, firstly what you are allergic to and secondly the cubic air volume of the room that you want to clean. This is where air purifier selection normally goes wrong for end users, they don't match the allergy for the filter and then they buy an air purifier that is too small for their room and it cannot clean the air.
The MeacoClean air purifiers can remove from the air
Second Check your Room Size
In terms of room size the MeacoClean CA-HEPA119x5 can move up to 595m3 of air per hour. The more often the air from your room goes through the air purifier each hour the cleaner the air will become. If your symptoms are mild then three times an hour will be fine, five times an hour will give better results and a factor of seven or eight times an hour should be used if your allergy is severe. The table below gives you an indication of the room sizes that the MeacoClean CA-HEPA 119x5 can purify for you.
|Number of air changes per hour and room size
To convert from cubic metres to cubic feet multiple the above number by 35.3 (i.e. 119m3 equals 4200ft3).
Most people end up with an air purifier that is too small for their room and with a filter that does not clean the right allergens from the air. Using the above table will ensure that you get the correct air purifier to make a real difference to your quality of life.
If your room size is larger than the above then our larger unit the MeacoClean CA-HEPA 119x5 would be more appropriate.
Another way to compare air purifiers is to look at their CADR rating.
|Clean Air Delivery Rate score
CADR is a respected, independent, internationally recognised test standard. The above laboratory scores show how effective the air purifier is at cleaning the air. Use these figures to compare the MeacoClean with other air purifiers as part of your decision mmaking process. When researching ask for air flow rates to see how many times an hour the air will pass through the air purifier and if they are using charcoal then ask how much charcoal is in the filter, our 119x5 purifier uses 450 grams of enhanced coconut charcoal (the heavier the better and not all charcoal is as effective as coconut).
How the MeacoClean works
The MeacoClean use an advanced multi-stage air cleaning system to purifier the air.
- First the pre-filter removes large airborne particles.
- Secondly the true HEPA filter removes particles from the air as small as 0.3 microns (smaller than the eye can see)
- Thirdly the enhanced charcoal filter removes smells and odours.
- Fourth the combined ultra violet and Photocatalytic Oxidation enhanced Titanium Dioxide (PCO) combine to destroy viruses, germs and bacteria.
- Finally the ioniser helps to neutralise dust particles.
The MeacoClean CA-HEPA 119x5 air purifier features a particle counter which varies the air purifiers performance depending on the number of allergens in the air and a colour changing light that indicates the quality of the room air. A filter replacement indicator will tell you when to replace the filter set (approximately every 6 months). It also has a sleep mode to reduce the fan speed and turn off the lights to ensure a good nights sleep with purified air.
The enhanced charcoal filter contains 450g +/-20g of charcoal for superior odour removal. The enhanced charcoal and HEPA filters have a rubber gasket seal to make sure that no air can pass through the air purifier without being cleaned.
The MeacoClean range has been designed to offer you a superior air cleaning solution to your allergy problems at an affordable and sensible price. You can buy the MeacoClean CA-HEPA 119x5 safe in the knowledge that you are buying an air purifier that really will make a real difference to your quality of life.
