What does the manufacturer mean by the phrase "Perfect Seal HEPA"?
Amaircare developed the 'Perfect Seal HEPA' in response to the air purifiers on the market that boast HEPA filters, but fail to meet true HEPA standards due to an improper sealing. If the air can pass around the HEPA media or mix inside the system, then you are not achieving true HEPA filtration. The Perfect Seal HEPA ensures that air passing through the HEPA system, is filtered through the HEPA media and cannot escape around it or mix with unfiltered air. Each and every HEPA air purifier that Amaircare builds is tested with a laser particle counter to ensure that it does indeed, meet or exceed HEPA standards. Each filter itself features a foam-like gasket and soft edge to conform to and seal around the body of the unit. Lastly, a Perfect Seal HEPA sticker is then placed on the unit so you know it meets HEPA standards!
How often do I need to replace the filters?
In the larger units, the Amaircare 3000 and the Amaircare 2500 , the HEPA filter should be changed every 2-5 years, the optional VOC Canister every year, and the Carbon inner filter every 6 months. In the portable unit, the Roomaid Air Purifier , the pre-filter and carbon filters should be changed every 6 months and the VOC canister every year.
Does my air purifier come with casters?
The Amaircare 3000 comes with casters, while the Amaircare 2500 and the Portable Roomaid do not have casters.
How do I choose the right Amaircare for me?
The first thing that you'll need to check is the approximate square footage for the room that the air purifier will be in. Physicians recommend that the ACH or Air Changes Per Hour be at least 4 for optimal health. At 4 ACH the coverage area for each of the Amaircare units is:
- Amaircare 3000 air purifier: 422 square feet
- Amaircare 2500 air purifier: 328 square feet
- Portable Roomaid: 100 square feet (3 ACH). An optional auto adapter is available for the the Amaircare Portable. This can be an excellent air purifier for those who have sensitivity to auto fumes and other irritants when driving.
After determining the right size model for your needs, you'll want to see if you need the additional VOC protection that is available. VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds include odors from paint, auto exhaust, carpets, furniture, dry cleaning, formaldehyde, aerosol sprays, cleaning products, smoke, smog and other toxic fumes. There is an optional VOC canister containing additional activated charcoal available for all of the Amaircare air purifiers to absorb these odors.
