The right filter for every situation: air as nature intended

Door: Adriaan Cramer
We are increasingly aware of the importance of good air quality. This process has been going on for some time, but recently it got a lot more attention because of the recent Corona crisis. People have started to think about the effect the air we breathe has on our health. After all, we depend on the air we live in: we need oxygen and we have to expel the CO2 we produce. But with the air we breathe, many other invisible substances and particles can enter our body. Coarse dust and fine dust are commonly known, but also fungi, pollen, soot particles, bacteria and viruses are part of it. Not everything is directly harmful to health and we can also take a beating, but it is better to breathe air as clean and pure as possible.
 

The first step: good ventilation
The first step towards better air quality can already be reached with proper ventilation. This will guarantee a continuous supply of fresh air from outside and expels the polluted air from your house. The air quality outside is usually better than the air indoors. Everything that has accumulated in your home and all particulate matter that you produce inside, for example by cooking, is exchanged  in this way.

But of course we want to prevent other substances within the fresh air from entering the house again. Because, as I just said: pure air is better air. How much substance enters depends very much on the environment. Each area has its own characteristics that influence the air quality. This can have human and natural causes. Traffic, industry and livestock can emit a lot of particulate matter, but this is also released from agriculture and, for example, in nature reserves along the coast. There are several websites available where you can find the air quality in your area. And once you know that and are aware, you can also take the right measures.

The second step: choose the right filter for every situation
Coarse dust filter
Is the environment clean and is there little going on? Then the standard coarse dust filter (ISO Coarse) in the ventilation unit is already sufficient. This filter catches larger dust particles, but also, for example, insects.

Fine dust filter
If you live close by heavy traffic, emissions can enter your home. In such a case, you can opt for a finer filter (ISO ePM1) that also partly captures particulate matter. Also an advantage for people who have a mild form of hay fever.

Pure induct, for the smallest particulate matter
If the pollution is of an even higher degree, such as in crowded cities or close to industry, or if you are extra sensitive to pollution, then you prefer that all fine dust and particulates are filtered and the air enters your house as clean as possible. This is possible with our new Pure induct. This filter method works on the basis of ionization and according to recent tests it removes 99.94% of all fine dust particles from the air. An additional advantage, all other very small particles, such as soot particles, pollen, fungi, bacteria and viruses are also captured. Even the smoke and along the smell of the fireplace (wood burning) of the neighbors is no longer a burden.



Carbon filter, against odors and gases
A final aspect of air is that it can also contain odors. The Pure induct does remove smoke particles and with that some of the odors, but gaseous particles cannot be captured and those odors still come in. What helps is an active carbon filter. This can be placed in the ventilation unit as well as in the Pure induct (as an optional filter) and ensures that odors do not enter your home.

With the right filter, the purest air
So there is a solution for every situation. If you choose the correct ventilation filter combination that is suitable for your environment, you will be surrounded by healthy air. Air that feels and smells like the purest air we would  experience when we walk through nature. Air as nature intended!
