SIFAR® home air purifiers (Aire Limpio Integrated Residential Filtration Systems) meet the demands of a new technological concept: the “WHOLEHOUSE FILTRATION SYSTEM”. These are a comprehensive solution for the whole home, with high-efficiency filtration and minimum pressure drop for the ventilation system.
The SIFAR® filtration system adapts to centralised ventilation systems, overtaking current home and duct-type purification systems, which yield little actual efficiency and pose various problems: current purifiers are bulky, noisy, expensive and only provide a solution for one area as opposed to a whole house.
This is a comprehensive system based on HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters, a type of high-efficiency air filter, made up of a fibre mesh which, unlike membrane filters, are designed to retain pollutants and much smaller particles.
The new concept of ‘WHOLEHOUSE FILTRATION SYSTEM’ symbolises a comprehensive solution for the whole home, with high-efficiency filtration and minimum pressure drop for the ventilation system.
Air pollution in large cities is a growing concern in Spain. The air we breathe outside, at work and at home has clear effects on our health, with the number of people affected by respiratory problems increasing.
We spend about 90% of our lives in enclosed spaces, including our homes, and air pollution can be equally or more harmful in these areas than when we are outdoors. Being aware that this pollution exists and knowing how to control it is also essential for our health.
SIFAR® home air filtration systems have two operating modes:
- Passive:the unit detects that outdoor air quality is good and the fan is not in operation. Air is therefore allowed to pass through the system.
- Active:the air contains pollutants and the indoor fan makes the air flow pass through the filters of the unit in order for it to be purified and subsequently distributed around the home.
The volume of air treated by a SIFAR® system is in the range of between 200 and 500 cubic metres per hour. This is a suitable flow for homes with up to 5 or 6 bedrooms.
