Giv­ing you clean air all the time

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HOME & LIVING -

HEALTHY liv­ing be­gins with good air qual­ity. Pana­sonic’s range of air pu­ri­fiers brings the magic of clean and healthy in­door air to all in the fam­ily.

As the air gets more pol­luted ev­ery day, pol­lu­tants ac­cu­mu­late within our homes. These pol­lu­tants are in­vis­i­ble and pose a threat to our health.

With that, Pana­sonic has a range of air pu­ri­fiers that comes in both hu­mid­i­fy­ing and non-hu­mid­i­fy­ing mod­els.

The top of the range model is the F-VCF70, which cov­ers a 52sq m area. It uses Pana­sonic’s Na­noe tech­nol­ogy which has the abil­ity of re­mov­ing hy­dro­gen from viruses, bac­te­ria, odours and al­ler­gens.

The Na­noe is a nano-sized elec­tro­static atom­ised wa­ter par­ti­cle. It has a six times longer life­span com­pared to a nor­mal ion and con­tains mois­ture of around 1,000 times to mi­nus ions.

While nor­mal ions de­cay be­fore they can dis­sem­i­nate through­out the room, Na­noe par­ti­cles spread to ev­ery cor­ner ef­fec­tively af­ter five min­utes.

The Na­noe par­ti­cle in­hibits 99.9% of viruses and bac­te­ria. These in­clude the H1N1 virus strain as well as the E.coli 0157.

The Na­noe also pro­motes skin hy­dra­tion as the par­ti­cles at­tach them­selves to the se­bum, form­ing mem­branes on the skin, which pre­vents mois­ture loss af­ter ex­po­sure to the pu­ri­fier for 30 min­utes.

In the model F-VCF70, the Na­noe par­ti­cles are ex­tracted from the mois­ture in the air, mak­ing wa­ter re­plen­ish­ment for the ap­pli­ance un­nec­es­sary.

Cer­tain mod­els are also equipped with the ECONAVI, an eco-oper­a­tion mode that runs the ap­pli­ance only when nec­es­sary.

It is an in­tel­li­gent tech­nol­ogy that mon­i­tors daily ac­tiv­i­ties and mem­o­rises the pol­lu­tion lev­els through­out the day. It then con­trols the pu­ri­fier oper­a­tion be­fore pol­lu­tants can spread through­out the house.

It first checks for pol­lu­tants via odour and house dust sen­sors at 10-minute in­ter­vals per hour un­der medium speed. It learns the pol­lu­tion pat­tern by study­ing the time­line and its in­ten­sity.

The speed of the pu­ri­fier will then re­flect the data gath­ered from the ECONAVI. It op­er­ates au­to­mat­i­cally be­fore pol­lu­tants spread and saves en­ergy too as it cleans be­fore the pol­lu­tants spread throughtout the room.

The ECONAVI also min­imises un­nec­es­sary oper­a­tion. Us­ing ECONAVI saves you 50% of what you nor­mally would use in the nor­mal mode.

The Mega Catcher traps ev­ery­thing from the ceil­ing such as odours, smoke and small float­ing par­ti­cles. When pol­lu­tants are de­tected, the front panel will open ac­cord­ing to the pol­lu­tion level for ef­fec­tive pu­rifi­ca­tion.

It traps fine pol­lu­tants such as mites’ drop­pings and dead in­sects from the ceil­ing to about 30cm in height.

In larger houses, dust and pol­lu­tants usu­ally hover just above the floor level, such as pol­lens, dusts and larger pol­lu­tants. The Mega Catcher traps all these and pu­ri­fies the air.

From there, the 3D circulation air­flow de­liv­ers the pu­ri­fied air in two modes.

The “up­ward air­flow” takes in air from the top, bot­tom, left and right and de­liv­ers pu­ri­fied air di­rectly up­wards in a 90-de­gree an­gle.

It tar­gets gaseous pol­lu­tants such as odours from cook­ing, waste, pets, cig­a­rette and mould.

It also at­tracts pol­lu­tants un­der two me­tres such as mould spores, viruses, cig­a­rette smoke and air­borne bac­te­ria.

The “front air­flow” mode takes in air from a large open­ing at the bot­tom and dis­penses the pu­ri­fied air in a 60-de­gree an­gle.

It is per­fect for fil­ter­ing out pollen, dust, dust mi­tex and pet dan­druff from the air.

The in­te­gra­tion of the hu­mid­i­fier with the Na­noe helps to re­plen­ish the mois­ture back to the skin. Dur­ing hu­mid­i­fi­ca­tion, the sen­sor will show the hu­mid­ity level of the room and con­trol the oper­a­tion ac­cord­ingly.

Pana­sonic’s com­pos­ite air fil­ter is di­vided into two por­tions: a glass fil­ter and a high speed static-elec­tric­ity fil­ter.

The de­signs are smart with fea­tures such as “spot air mode” for tar­get­ing spe­cific ar­eas and a light sen­sor.
