Every year I get phone calls from the company called Airfree that keeps trying to set me up as a dealer so I can sell their products. This company Airfree sells a line of Portuguese made gizmo’s called air sterilizers that claim to destroy contaminants including viruses, bacteria and mold spores in areas from 450 to 650 square feet. They call this safe and silent technology. The truth is that these so called air sterilizer units made by Airfree are simply a ceramic hot plate with a dome shaped shroud with air slots wrapped around it. The ceramic hot plate heats up to kill any microorganism that may find its way onto the heated hot plate. Your kitchen ovens ceramic cook top will pretty much do the same thing!
The problem is that the Airfree units have absolutely no air filtration system in it at all to catch, filter and remove airborne particulate allergens and it is indeed silent because it has absolutely no fan or blower motor in it to exchange the air in the room through the machine to make much of a difference in your home or office area’s indoor air quality.
Airfree says that the heat created by its 400 degree F. ceramic hot plate creates an air convection that moves air through the machine. However their unrealistic claim that the Airfree unit can exchange the air two times per hour in a 650 square foot area is pretty lame in itself. If the operating area were to have an open window, window air conditioner or a ducted air conditioning or heating system, the airflow blowing contaminants into the room would immediately and totally overwhelm the little air sterilizer rendering it useless! The Airfree air sterilizer units come in three models. The models are called the Onix 3000, Platinum 2000 and the P1000.
A Much Better Air Purifier Choice
If you have allergies, asthma or indoor air quality (IAQ) problems with bacteria, viruses or mold spores your best choice will be to purchase a quality HEPA air purifier(s) with an non-ozone producing ultraviolet light (UV) system in it to quickly remove airborne dust, pollen, dust mite allergen and pet dander as well as bacteria, viruses and mold spores. The best HEPA air purifier that includes a tried and true non-ozone producing ultraviolet (UV) light system is called the TRACS. The TRACS HEPA air purifier is made in the USA and will clean the air in an open area up to 1000 square feet. In an average sized bedroom the TRACS air purifier will clean and exchange the are up to 13 times per hour! The TRACS is extremely quiet and has a four-speed motor to control your desired airflow. Also note that the TRACS HEPA air purifier holds the patent on the design to aim the ultraviolet (UV) bulbs into the intake side of the HEPA filter to kill bacteria, viruses and mold spores before they can penetrate into the HEPA filter. THE TRACS also includes pounds of an activated carbon/zeolite blend to absorb and remove out-gassing chemicals that come from carpeting and home furnishings. The filter replacement cost for the TRACS HEPA air purifier is VERY reasonable and the TRACS is the HEPA air purifier of choice for hospitals that do organ transplants and chemotherapy. The EPA building in Washington DC is using multiple TRACS HEPA air purifiers in their basement office areas to improve their indoor air quality.
As Far As The Airfree Air Sterilizers Go, I Would Question The Honesty And Integrity Of ANY COMPANY THAT SELLS THEM!
