Choose a comfy room that fits your whole family (pets too!). Close the doors and windows and, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tells us, continuously run an air purifier that’s big enough for the room, to circulate the cleanest possible air. TruSens Medium and Large purifiers will display the room’s air quality index (AQI): the same measure the EPA uses to define healthy air. And with SensorPod, the purifier will measure the AQI and automatically adjust its speed accordingly.
up to 23 m²
Small but mighty, with a powerful dual airflow streams and a HEPA filter, it will move cleaner air all over a compact space.
up to 35 m²
SensorPod reads the air quality of a medium sized room and communicates it back to the purifier: TruSens adjusts accordingly and even tells you the AQI, so you know how it compares to outside air.
up to 70 m²
The quickest way to create an EPA-recommended “clean room”: Featuring SensorPod, four-level filtration, five fan speeds and an AQI display, this model will keep cleaner air flowing, even in a bigger space.
"Plug and play" right out of the box! SensorPod has been factory paired with the purifier.
TruSens displays air quality levels of your room, so you know that your purifier is working and your air is clean.
SensorPod ensures that the purifier is running at optimal levels. This can extend filter life and reduce unnecessary power consumption.
Smoke caused by wildfires can make the outdoor air unhealthy to breathe—which can impact indoor air quality in your home or work. Local officials may advise you to stay indoors during a smoke event and the EPA recommends a portable air cleaner that is the right size for the room to remove smoke particles.
Sometimes! Air purifiers that use High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) can certainly help reduce indoor particle levels, provided the air purifier is the right size for the room, and doors and windows are kept shut. Make sure your purifier is not an ozone generator, as that may increase indoor air pollution. TruSens air purifiers use both HEPA filtration and UV-C light.
Wildfire smoke has a way of moving far distances. Check the EPA’s air quality index listing to learn about the outdoor air quality in your area. If there’s smoke outdoors, there is likely smoke indoors: It contains fine particles that can get into your eyes and respiratory system. Be sure to reduce indoor sources of pollution to lower the concentrations of particles: During a smoke event, avoid burning candles or incense, smoking tobacco products, using aerosol products, and, of course, don’t use a gas or wood-burning stove or fireplace. Another step is air filtration.
HEPA filters remove tiny particulate matter down to 0.3 microns. These ultrafine bits are the most common and dangerous component of wildfire smoke, which can be blown far beyond the actual fire. HEPA filters typically come with replaceable carbon pre-filters that also remove the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in wildfire smoke (benzene, acrolein and formaldehyde, for example). Pre-filters take care of larger particles such as pollen, too.
Most importantly, make sure the unit uses HEPA filtration. Other filter types and air purification methods may not filter the smallest particulates, which causes the greatest health problems, and some are ozone generators — which isn’t good for you (or the planet).
