Air purifier support

The air inside our home may actually be more polluted than the air we breathe outside. FÖRNUFTIG air purifier improves the air quality in your home, while it is easy to set up, use and maintain. Learn more about how to use the air purifier and how it helps improve your health.

Why do we need an air purifier at home?

We often connect air pollution to bad air quality outdoors. But air pollution is quite common indoors too. Indoor air pollution can be caused either by external pollution entering the home or by chemicals used inside (on furniture, fabrics and cleaning products). It can also be caused by our everyday activities (such as cooking) or other factors such as mold and pollen. As we spend more time inside, air quality in our homes plays an increasingly important role in our health.

How FÖRNUFTIG air purifier works

FÖRNUFTIG air purifier removes odours, dust, smoke, pollen and chemicals from the air using its filters. The pre-filter removes large particles such as bristles and dust, the particle filter removes smaller airborne particles such as dust and pollen sized up to 2.5 μm, and the gas filter purifies the air from gas pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and formaldehyde, while it reduces unpleasant odours from smoking and cooking. This improves the quality of air and makes your home a safer and healthier place for you and your loved ones.

Who can use an air purifier?

Clean air is good for all of us, but it is especially beneficial for people suffering from asthma, allergies or other respiratory diseases. FÖRNUFTIG air purifier is a safe way to improve indoor air quality for the whole family, including the children’s room.

Filters for FÖRNUFTIG air purifier

FÖRNUFTIG air purifier has a 3 filter system: pre-filter, particle filter and gas purification filter. The pre-filter at the front removes large particles like hair and dust and you can easily clean it with a vacuum cleaner. The package includes a replaceable filter for the particle filter. This filter absorbs 99,95% of microparticles and removes smaller airborne particles such as dust and pollen sized up to 2.5μm. You can even install a gas filter that cleans the air of gas pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde and that reduces unpleasant odours from smoking and cooking. The particle and gas filters cannot be cleaned; they can only be replaced.

How to replace the filters

Both HEPA 12 particle filter and gas filter must be regularly checked and replaced every six months. However, every home is different. Therefore, check regularly if the filter is dirty. There is also a LED display that reminds you to check the filter and replace it if necessary. To open the appliance, simply pull the handle on the right side. This loosens the pre-filter. To replace the particle and / or gas filter, you must first remove the pre-filter.
