If indoor air quality is causing problems in the home or the office, an air purifier from Russell Hobbs may provide a sensible solution. According to the company, indicators of poor indoor air can include allergic reactions and asthma symptoms, condensation on windows or walls, smelly or stuffy air, or even mouldy areas where books, shoes and other household items are kept. Moreover, the use of synthetic building materials, indoor furnishings which hold dirt and pollutants, the use of personal care products, pesticides and household cleaners all contribute to this problem.

Russell Hobbs has announced Mountain Breeze, an air purifier aimed at improving indoor air quality. Suitable for rooms up to 40 square metres and great for allergy or asthma sufferers, it features a five stage air purifier with puri-tech photocatalysis technology which uses a combination of sterile mesh and UV lights to generate a chemical reaction. In this process, the UV lights break down the DNA of particles, effectively killing them.

Mountain Breeze is ideal for allergy or asthma sufferers and suits rooms up to 40 square metres.

Mountain Breeze has a washable pre-filter coated with an anti-bacterial agent, to prevent bacterial growth. It traps larger particles to prolong the life of other filters and it may be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner.

The unitts true HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter traps up to 99.97% particles (or equal to 0.3 microns in size or greater) and is sealed in a frame, guarding against dust mites, pollen, viruses, bacteria, mould spores and tobacco smoke. Its activated carbon filter captures particles that pass through the HEPA filter and protects against fumes, tobacco smoke and odour molecules. As well, an ioniser cleans the air of positively charged pollutants which Russell Hobbs claims can assist in combating fatigue and stress.

The devicees silent modee makes it possible to use the air purifier at night and it also includes a programmable on/off timer, dust and odour sensors and filter change indicator.
