As spring arrives, so does hay fever season, and for many allergy sufferers, this time of year brings sneezing, itchy eyes, and overall discomfort. However, there’s a potential ally that can help increase your comfort levels at home, an air purifier with HEPA filter.
Are HEPA Air Purifiers worth it?
Many people question do air purifiers work and whether they are worth the investment for allergy relief. The main function of an air purifier is to improve your indoor air quality by removing irritants that contribute to hay fever symptoms, such as pollen, dust, and pet dander. While various models on the market achieve this with varying degrees of success, high-quality air purifiers, particularly those equipped with HEPA filters, are indeed effective at reducing these airborne contaminants. They work by drawing air through filters that capture the particles, resulting in cleaner and fresher indoor air. HEPA filters can capture ultra-fine particles in the air, as small as 0.3μm, which includes airborne particles known to cause allergies.
With so many models to choose from, how do you navigate which ones offer the best performance and features to suit your needs while providing optimal value? The Mitsubishi Electric MA-E85R-A Air Purifier offers a range of advanced features that go beyond standard air purifiers with HEPA filters. In this blog, we will explore six surprising features you probably didn’t know a Mitsubishi Electric Air Purifier had, which can help alleviate the hay fever blues and improve your indoor air quality.
1. Smart Search Sensors – Directs Air Flow to Where It’s Needed:
The Mitsubishi Electric MA-E85R-A Air Purifier comes equipped with innovative Smart Search Sensor technology. This feature uses high-precision PM2.5 and odour sensors to continuously scan the room to detect the presence of airborne particles, such as pollen, dust and pollutants and then directs the airflow towards those areas. By targeting specific zones, the air purifier efficiently removes contaminants from the air, ensuring cleaner and fresher indoor air.
2. Pre-filter Cleaning Made Easy:
One of the highlights of the MA-E85R-A Air Purifier is its user-friendly design. The auto-cleaning pre-filter rotates and efficiently collects dust and other large particles, directing them into a separate compartment that is easily accessible and simple to clean. The Auto Cleaning Mechanism ensures that the Pre-Filter stays cleaner for longer periods, giving you better performance and hassle-free maintenance.
3. Superior Louvre Design Reaching Every Corner:
Mitsubishi Electric Air Purifiers come with an impressive Multi-Directional Airflow feature. The intelligent louvres automatically move across five different angles from left to right, detecting and stopping where the air is most contaminated. This advanced technology sets the MA-E85R apart, as it ensures every corner of the room receives thorough air purification coverage.
4. Washable Activated Carbon Filter:
Another standout feature is the washable activated carbon filter. This reduces the need for frequent filter replacements and allows you to extend the life of the activated carbon filter by washing it. This cost-saving and environmentally friendly solution effectively neutralises odours and harmful gases, providing extra comfort for allergy sufferers.
When considering an air purifier, it’s important to remember that certain filters will eventually need to be replaced. One significant difference between various brands is how long their filters last before requiring replacement. While most brands require a filter change every 6-8 months, the MA-E85R-A model has HEPA & Carbon filters that can last for years, depending on your usage and operating environment. Typically, these filters only need to be replaced every five years when the unit is set to ‘Normal’ mode. This is an excellent feature since it’s more convenient and could save you money over time. Additionally, the unit’s replace filter indicator light eliminates the guesswork of when to make the change and guarantees that you get the most out of your filter’s lifespan.
5. Large HEPA Filter for Maximum Filtration:
The HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) Filter catches up to 99.97% ultra-fine particles in the air, as small as 0.3μm1 including allergy causing airborne particles, such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and mould spores. Due to the large surface area of the M-E85R-A HEPA filter, it can enhance the air purification process by capturing more airborne particles. The result is cleaner air faster and reduced allergen exposure.
6. Coverage for Large or Open Plan Spaces
Mitsubishi Electric Air Purifiers are ideally suited for large and open-plan rooms. With an optimum room size of 60 m2, they are designed to efficiently clean and purify the air in spacious areas, ensuring that the entire room benefits from improved indoor air quality. Whether it’s a large living room, an open-plan space, or a sizeable office, Mitsubishi Electric Air Purifiers are up to the task of providing clean and fresh air, making them an excellent choice for larger environments.
The worth of a HEPA air purifier depends on your specific needs and concerns. For individuals with allergies, respiratory conditions, or odour sensitivity, air purifiers can significantly enhance their quality of life by providing cleaner and healthier indoor air. Additionally, air purifiers can be especially valuable during bushfire seasons and times of increased pollution. The Mitsubishi Electric air purifier is packed with extra features to assist with hay fever symptoms and promote cleaner indoor air. From Smart Search technology to large washable longer-lifespan filters and multi-directional louvres, these air purifiers offer a range of benefits that go beyond standard models. Experience the difference and embrace a hay fever-free spring with a Mitsubishi Electric Air Purifier.
