Blueair FAQ

How quiet are the Blueair Air Purifiers?

Blueair air purifiers are extremely quiet and efficient. The filter media allows air to pass through freely so that the fan doesn't have to work as hard. A less powerful fan translates to less noise. Even the housing of the Blueair air purifiers is designed with quiet operation in mind, replacing sound-sonant plastic with noise-muffling steel. Each Blueair air purifier comes with patented HEPASilent Filter Technology which offers near silent air cleaning for any area of your home or office.

How many filters do the Blueair Air Purifiers use?

The 200 series Blueair air purifiers use one HEPASilent filter that traps airborne particles like dust, pollen, bacteria, animal dander, and mold spores, while the models above the 200 series use three HEPASilent filters for improved air purification. Optional Smokestop filters (with a layer of activated carbon) remove odors, fumes, and gaseous pollutants. The Blueair AirPod uses one HEPASilent filter that does not contain activated carbon.

When do I need to change the filters in the Blueair Air Purifiers?

For optimal performance, we recommend that you change all Blueair air filters every six months. This will guarantee that your Blueair air purifier will continue to work effectively and efficiently to provide you with clean air.
