The Airocide air purifier, which uses NASA technology to clean the air with no filters, is phenomenal. A few months ago, an Airocide air purifier was sent to me by the company. My family has been “air purifier-less” for several years, thinking that there was nothing that could do the big job of purifying the air of our twelve-hundred square foot loft with twenty-foot high ceilings. I was a bit skeptical. When I opened the Airocide box, I found that the unit was small, very streamlined, and promised no filters. In the past, it was the filters and the cleaning that became prohibitive. Additionally, I was never sure the air purifiers were helping me or my family since every room needed to have one.
I plugged the Airocide unit in beside my bed, making sure it was a few inches away from the back of the wall, and was unobstructed in the front. Please excuse the very bad picture, but I think it explains a lot about our space.
I plugged the Airocide unit in during the early spring, when the pollen counts were climbing. I was feeling very congested, a bit tired, and my eyes were itchy. Within one week I was feeling better. I am not sure how to explain it without being graphic and admitting that I sound like I am forty years older than I really am in the mornings, but, suffice to say I was much more quiet during my morning routine. Additionally, our fifteen year old, who is in the loft in an adjacent room, felt better too.
Here’s a video on how the Airocide unit works:
And a blurb from Airocide web site;
Airocide draws in harmful airborne pathogens and forces them into a densely packed matrix of highly reactive catalysts that are activated by a high intensity 254-nanometer light. The reaction destroys these harmful pathogens on contact. Nothing is captured so there is nothing to clean. All that exits is crisp, clear air, with zero ozone emissions.
The technology that powers Airocide is an older NASA technology. It has been used for twelve years in corporate settings, as well as on the Space Station – here is some more information on where the technology has been in use, and its success rates.
- Surgery – average results 73% reduction in bacteria and mold
- Office – average results 72% reduction in bacteria and mold
- Households – average results 75% reduction in bacteria and mold
- Childcare Center – average results 60% reduction in bacteria and mold
- Dental Private Practices – average results 81% reduction in bacteria and mold
To Summarize, for me and our family, the Airocide air purifying unit is excellent and has the following attributes:
1. Small and lightweight.
2. Well designed, looks good in any room.
3. Works in large spaces.
4. Requires little to no care after you plug it in.
5. Has three settings, including a quiet setting for nighttime.
