Question about the Airpura H600 Allergy Asthma Air Purifier,Cream

Q:"What makes this portable air purfier superior to Honeywell, Holmes, etc. I am allergic and want the best air filtration unit I can find. Thanks. Sara."

Answer: AirPura is Made in Canada, not in China or outside North America. The construction and warranty as we describe below should help with your choice.

Air Pura Technology Below  Makes Airpura Your Best Choice:

  • Vacuumable Pre-filter 570 sq in x 1" deep: Vacuum through the mesh and replace every 12 months
  • 2 Micro-Suppress filters: Suppress bacteria and viruses around the carbon bed
  • Carbon filter: Absorbs airborne chemicals, noxious gases and odors
  • True HEPA filter: 40 Sq Ft. Traps 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.HEPA is warm rolled to prevent cracking. 10 pleats per sq inch maximizes filtration (other systems only
    use 6-8 folds). Spacers to make sure every fold filters.
  • Unimpeded airflow: air flows directly from the filters to the exterior for lower air turbulance and less noise
  • Motor and electric parts out of the airflow:Other systems blow clean air over the motor and recontaminate it
  • One piece motor / fan assembly: Eliminates vibration problems where separate fan is attached to a shaft with a set screw.
  • Compact motor / fan design allows more space for filtration 
  • Felt Gaskets: Seal the filter chamber so there is no off gassing from rubber seals.
  • Unique pressure seal:seal system on the filter chamber ensures that all the impurities pass through the filters. Other filters let dirty air escape around the filters.
  • Air Flow 560 CFM:More cfm than any other portable unit available
  • Powdercoat steel mesh housing with 4 castors: No plastic vapors from housing.
  • Attractive modern appearance: choose color to match your decor
  • Variable speed control: allows user to set unit at optimum CFM for their situation
  • Sound Level: 28.1db on low (at 6 feet),  62.3db on high (560cfm) (Room level 25.1db)
  • Power usage:Watts   120 on high, 40 on low
  • Size23" height, 15" diameter
  • Etl Certified: Conforms to ANSI/UL 507  CSA C22.2 no 113
  • Weight: 45 lbs.
  • Warranty: 5 years on parts, 10 years on labor by AirPura

Compare with the Honeywell and other brands. Decide if you want a unit that lasts for 5 to 10 years or more or a throw away model.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara
