Healthy air begins at home with Khind
WITHOUT a doubt, the air we breathe is getting more polluted as the days go by.
When we’re outdoors, we inhale pollution from motor vehicles and industrial facilities, whereas when we’re indoors, we’re also exposed to dust, pet dander and more.
Most of the time, we dismiss this as harmless, without knowing that prolonged exposure, especially to growing children whose lungs are not fully developed, may lead to lifelong respiratory problems.
We may not be able to change the outdoor air quality instantly, but we can begin at home with a reliable air purifier, such as the ones produced by Khind.
Khind Air Purifier HAP 30 and HAP 40 are the latest models in the market.
These air purifiers are equipped with multiple filters, whereby each of them plays an essential role in producing cleaner air.
Volatile organic compounds such as formaldehyde, ammonia and benzene are absorbed and decomposed in the first layer called the Cold Catalyst filter.
After that, strong smelling odours from the room are removed through the second layer, the Cellular-Activated Carbon filter.
The Antibacterial filter, which is the third layer, helps to remove fine particulates and bacteria.
Subsequently, strong filtration of bacteria, dust, mould allergens and other tiny particles are provided through the final layer called the High Efficiency HEPA filter.
The HEPA filter alone has a 99.5% removal rate of particulate matter (PM) of 2.5, which are fine particles that are 2.5 microns in diameter or less – small enough to be easily drawn into the lungs during breathing.
Besides the cutting-edge main functions, the Khind air purifier series is also equipped with an ultraviolet sterilising light that kills bacteria.
It also generates negative ions to improve the air quality in the room, making it fresher and healthier to inhale.
Worry not about the hassle of switching it on and off, because it comes with a three-speed fan and a 12-hour timer setting, as well as a sleep mode that is best used in bedrooms because of its low-noise level.
For those prone to eye irritation, dry skin and dry throat, the Khind HAP 40 is recommended for its added humidification function.
Coming with three mist volume settings and a water cut-off alarm, the humidifying function provides a more comfortable air quality.
In terms of its effective coverage area, the Khind HAP 30 and HAP 40 covers 30m² and 40m² respectively.
For the Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR), the HAP 40 works as fast as 220m³/h, and 150m³/h for the HAP 30.
The higher the CADR result, the better the ability to clean indoor air that is polluted with tobacco smoke, dust, pollen and more.
Both the Khind Air Purifier HAP 30 and HAP 40 come with a threeyear warranty and are available at major retail outlets.
