Boat odours will be a thing of the past with this super-smart air purifier.
Launched in MaCaptionsrch this year by Swedish company Blueair, HealthProtect is probably the most advanced domestic air purifier on the market. Combining new technologies, it provides protection against viruses and bacteria, and has been proven in independent laboratory tests to remove SARS-CoV-2, though its R&D actually pre-dates the pandemic.
It uses HEPASilent Ultra, Blueair’s most advanced filtration technology. This combines electrostatic and mechanical filtration to remove up to 99.9% of pollutants such as dust, pollen, dander, mould, VOCs (including formaldehyde), odours and nanoparticles down to 0.03 microns, as well as all viruses and bacteria. When this purifier is on standby, its Germ Shield technology proactively monitors the room using temperature and humidity sensors, automatically activating when conditions are optimal for germ growth. Unlike some systems, the SpiralAir outlets used by HeathProtect are engineered to deliver omnidirectional airflow. It has a high clean air delivery rate, meaning it will clean the area that it’s recommended for in only 12 minutes.
HealthProtect can be voice-controlled by Amazon Alexa and Google Home, or remotely via the Blueair app. It is equipped with a smart filter powered by an RFID chip that accurately monitors the filter usage within the unit. When it’s time to replace the filter, the app will send you an alert. It also comes with cleanable pre-filters that capture larger particles like dust. These conveniently pop out for quick maintenance and significantly extend the lifetime of the main filter. For bedroom/cabin use, HEPASilent technology provides filtration quieter than 30dB on the lowest setting, while it produces 65dB during normal use.
HealthProtect comes in two sizes: 38m2 and 62m2. It is available now from major retailers, including Harrods, Amazon, Very and Wayfair, from £639.
