MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Homes, both new and old, can host a range of airborne impurities, from outdoor allergens like mold spores and pollen, to indoor contaminants like dust, smoke, and pet dander. These pollutants have a knack for finding their way into all rooms of the house. The new Honeywell Compact AirGenius 4 Air Cleaner offers a convenient and powerful solution to help combat these air quality issues.
A slightly smaller version of the popular Honeywell AirGenius 4 Tower Air Cleaner, the Compact AirGenius 4 provides the same great performance for rooms up to 150 sq. ft., removing up to 99.9% of airborne pollutants, as small as 0.3 microns, from the air that passes through its filter. This compact air cleaning device also captures odors and common household volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as fumes from household cleaners, paint, new flooring products, etc. The slim design is perfect for tighter spaces and for average–sized bedrooms.
"According to the EPA, indoor air can be two to five times, and even up to 100 times, more polluted than outdoor air.1 With Americans spending about 90 percent of their time indoors2, air cleaning and purifying devices can be an important tool to help maintain cleaner, fresher air in the home. This is particularly important for anyone with sensitivities to pet dander, dust, smoke or pollen," said Dr. Ted Myatt, ScD, an environmental health specialist.
Room size (square footage) is a key factor in determining the right air purifier for your space. All Honeywell Air Purifiers and Air Cleaners are 3rd party independently tested to circulate the room air 5 times per hour in the device's stated room size. Engineered for rooms up to 150 sq. ft., the new Honeywell Compact AirGenius 4 Air Cleaner is ideal for bedrooms, offices, or smaller living spaces.
The Honeywell Compact AirGenius 4 Air Cleaner combines convenience and exceptional performance. The AirGenius 4s smart controls actually help do the thinking for you so you don't have to guess which cleaning level should be used. Select from four different settings based on your specific need—Sleep, General, Allergen and Max—for powerful and efficient room air cleaning. Based on the selected setting, the air purifier adjusts to draw particles in at the right level in order to optimize the filter's performance.
The exclusive, patented ifD® technology featured in the Honeywell Compact AirGenius 4 Air Cleaner is a fan-forced electronic filtration system that effectively captures up to 99.9 percent of the microscopic airborne particles (0.3 microns and larger) that pass through the filter, including mold spores, pollen, dust, smoke and pet dander. The air purifier's permanent ifD® filter is extremely quiet which makes it a perfect choice for bedrooms. It is easy to maintain – simply rinse the filter to clean it every 3 months – saving money on replacement filters. A filter indicator light will illuminate when it is time to clean the filter. The compact unit also has an oscillation setting and can be set to automatically shut off after two, four or eight hour cycles. A dimmer feature allows the user to dim the control panel lights when used in a bedroom or other space where less brightness is desired.
