    The facts about air quality

     

    We all want our homes to be safe and clean for our families. But the air in your home can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.

    The facts about air quality

    The impact of air pollution


    Air pollution can have a number of impacts on your health. The most common symptoms include headache, inflammation, nasal congestion, respiratory problems, skin irritation and stomach pain.

    Pollutants

    Philips air purifiers clean the air from these common pollutants

    Philips air purifiers have a multi-stage filtration system that captures up to 99.97% of harmful particles, from dust, allergens and PM2.5 particles.

     

    *From the air that passes through the filter, tested with NaCl aerosol by iUTA according to DIN71460-1.

    CADR

    What CADR means for your home

    The Clean Air Delivery Rate is the global standard for measuring how much air (m3) a purifier

    can clean in a certain amount of time. So, the higher the CADR, the faster the purification.

     

    Airflow only measures wind speed, so it only tells us how much air is coming out. What airflow

    does not tell us is how clean that air is. This is why CADR is the right metric to use when choosing your purifier.

    Allergens

    How allergens attack

    Your immune system's job is to defend your body from harmful invaders. But when it mistakenly declares war on substances it shouldn’t, that’s an allergy.
