Better quality air in your home
The H13 HEPA filter provides enhanced air cleaning capabilities, turning your dehumidifier into a combined dehumidifier and air purifier. The H13 HEPA is used in addition to the dust filter that comes as standard in the dehumidifier, so that you can get two stages of filtration.
The HEPA filter can help remove mould spores, pollen, dust, pet dander, dust mites and more from the air. This is a true HEPA filter which means that they conform to tough international standards to ensure that they capture 99.75% of particles that have a size of 0.3 micrometers (μm) or larger in diameter.
These are the best filters for cleaning the air and removing dust, viruses, pollen, pet dander and more that you can currently get in a dehumidifier. Arete® can be used in a dedicated air purifier mode when you don’t need to dry the air.
What do you get
Every Arete® dehumidifier comes with a free H13 HEPA filter so you can see first hand just how good it is. If you want to always have cleaner, fresher air in your home this filter will have to be replaced roughly every 3 months. On this page you can purchase a pack of 3 replacement H13 HEPA filters for your Arete® 25L or 20L; alternatively you can take a look at our pack of 3 active charcoal filters to see if they will suit your needs better. If you can't make your mind up, you can use both types of filters and swap them around whenever you want to.
Things to note!
Using the HEPA filter will increase noise levels and reduce water extraction efficiency slightly, but this is the trade-off for cleaner air.
H13 HEPA filters cannot be recycled due to the nature of the product.
For health and safety reasons this product cannot be returned if the plastic bag around the HEPA filters has been opened.
