Stockholm 25 April: Swedish Blueair is once again recognized for its pioneering air purification technology, HEPASilent™, which delivers more clean air at a faster rate, at lower noise levels and with less energy consumption. Among 15 different brands tested, Blueair Classic 405 has a “superior air purification capacity” according to independent test institute Testfakta Research.

Why use an air purifier?
In addition to pollen, smoke and car exhausts entering our homes, dust, bacteria, virus and chemicals released from paint, furniture and clothing, make indoor air up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Clean air improves health, sleep and well-being. It is also known to improve learning. Children are particularly vulnerable to breathing polluted air as their lungs and brains are still developing.
About the test
Testfakta Research conducted comparative laboratory tests of air purifiers with the purpose of comparing the performance of air purifiers sold on the British and Nordic markets. The laboratory tests were performed by Intertek Testing & Certification and IBR Laboratories in the UK. The sample was selected by Testfakta Research on the basis of models suitable for a medium-sized room. The capacity was tested according to test standard ANSI/AHAM AC1-2015, measuring the capacity to eliminate various types of particles (dust and pollen). The 15 different models were tested on capacity at 37dB and at max speed. They were also tested for ease of use and ozone emissions. Read more about the tests here.
