Having an air purifier at home is a must when living in a humid environment and/or having a furry pet at home. For us, we have an air purifier at home because we want to have fresh and clean air at home for our children. As we have a pet at home, we do see fur flying all over in the air and this have caused some incessant nose irritation and sneezing. Thankfully, our concerns have now been relieved ever since we have got an air purifier at home.
With so many different brands and types of air purifiers out in the market, it can be quite tough choosing one.
Recently, we stumbled upon the SterraBreeze Air Purifier, and it is the top choice of air purifier here in Singapore.
Now, we have an existing air purifier at home and though the purpose of this article is not to do a direct comparison of air purifiers in the market, here are some reasons why you should consider the SterraBreeze Air Purifier.
The purpose of having an air purifier is to purify and clean the air that we breathe in. Often, the air that we breathe may contain harmful micro-particles such as spores of fungus/mould, pet fur, viruses, and air contaminants that our naked eye cannot see. An ideal air purifier should be able to remove 99.97% of all airborne particles.
Air purifiers usually consist of a filter, or multiple filters, and a fan that sucks in and circulates air. As air moves through the filter, pollutants and particles are captured, and the clean air is pushed back out into the living space. Typically, filters are made of paper, fibre (often fibreglass) or mesh, and they require regular replacement to maintain efficiency.
The SterraBreeze Air Purifier uses a powerful, medical-grade, 3-in-1 HEPA Filter that traps 99.95% of all particles including viruses and bacteria that are 0.1 μm in diameter and it’s nearly 100% efficient for those particles with a diameter larger than 2.5 μm. It is why even hospitals use the same filter grade to decontaminate their rooms and make them safe, comfortable, and clean for people.
With the ability to push out 400 cubic metres of fresh and clean air per hour, the SterraBreeze Air Purifier is permanently in our living room because it is the largest space in our house that is open and frequently used. As there is ongoing construction nearby our estate, it can get dusty so having an air purifier gives us peace of mind to know that we are breathing fresh and clean air.
One thing that we really like about the SterraBreeze Air Purifier is that it comes with a handle, and this makes it highly portable especially when we need to move the air purifier from one room to the other. When we do heavy-duty cooking, the SterraBreeze Air Purifier could immediately detect a change in the quality of air in the environment and since we always have the SterraBreeze Air Purifier on the “Auto” mode, it would automatically increase its fan speed to work harder in circulating clean air and decrease its fan speed when it detects that the air is clean.
For the heavily discounted price of SGD$349 (original price is SGD$539), the SterraBreeze Air Purifier is decently priced because its industry-leading specs could have made it more expensive than the other brands with generic specs out there. Furthermore, its electricity consumption is rather low at SGD$0.09 per day (assuming 8 hours of usage each day) and its affordable replacement filters (SGD$70/year) will save you thousands of dollars in the long run whilst making it spec-for-spec the best value-for-money air purifier.
With group buys being the rage nowadays, you can get the SterraBreeze Air Purifier for just SGD$279 when you jio (get) 4 other neighbours to buy it too!
