Placed across the room, SensorPod™ detects airborne pollutants and communicates to the air purifier so it can adjust fan speed as needed.*
With TruSens you’ll always know your indoor air quality. It is shown conveniently on the LED display* and within the TruSens Smart App.**
360° filtration captures smoke, ash, certain VOCs and other microscopic particles while the UV-C light kills germs and bacteria trapped in the filter.
PureDirect™ technology uses bi-directional airflow to distribute purified air effectively throughout the entire room.

The TruSens Smoke & VOC True HEPA Filter purifies indoor air with 3 levels of filtration to defend against smoke, odors, and reduces certain airborne VOCs. The all-in-one filter system combines a high performance activated carbon, True HEPA Filter and a durable mesh prefilter.
Many air purifiers that use High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) that 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. This reduction of indoor particle levels can include smoke, ash, and odors that make their way into the home from wildfires outdoors.
TruSens Air Purifiers use both HEPA filtration and UV-C light, as well as a carbon filter to help reduce smoke, ash, and odors in your indoor air.
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.
When purchasing an air purifier, specifically for wildfire smoke and odors, there are two key considerations. These considerations include filtration methods and room size.
Filtration: The most obviously benefit of using an air purifier is that it helps to reduce air pollutants from your indoor space. TruSens Air Purifiers use a combination HEPA filter and carbon filter to team up against smoke and odors that could be present. We also offer a Specialty Odor Filter that is specifically designed with a larger amount of activated carbon.
Smoke caused by wildfires can make the outdoor air unhealthy to breathe. It can also impact indoor air quality in your home or at 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.
Wildfire smoke can travel great 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. Use an air filtration system to reduce harmful particles in the air.
