The Importance of Air Quality in Your Home

We all know about the dangers of external air pollution, but what about the air quality in your home? The experts from Igenix explain the dangers and the use of air purifiers

  • What are the main sources of indoor air pollution? Indoor air pollution mainly comes from things like smoking, cooking, cleaning products, paints and furnishings, pet dander from your beloved pets and from allergens like dust mites and mould. Pollen can also come in from outside through doors and windows. 
  • What health risks do they pose? Breathing in polluted indoor air can cause problems like allergies, headaches, and make asthma worse. In the long run, it might even increase the chance of more serious health issues. 
  • How does an air purifier work? Air Purifiers, like the Smart Air Purifer from Igenix, clean the air of the room they’re in by removing airborne pollutants. They draw in bad particles from within the room, which are trapped in filters, leaving you with purified air. 
  • What is the definition of a HEPA filter? HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air, designed to capture particles as small as 0.3 microns with a 99.97% efficiency. The HEPA filter catches polluted particles, odours, allergens and dust, making your air much cleaner whilst alleviating allergies and other respiratory problems. 
  • Can an air purifier remove bacteria and viruses? Air purifiers with a H13 filter (such as the Igenix Smart Air Purifier) can even get rid of germs in the air, which can prevent you from getting viruses, including COVID-19.  
  • What are the features of the Igenix Smart Air Purifier? The Igenix Smart Air Purifier, with its built-in Wi-Fi utilising the Tuya Smartlife app, has a 3-stage filtration system: a pre-filter, activated carbon filter and a HEPA filter. Its UV function destroys germs and bacteria, along with built-in anion function using ions to remove odours from the air. Its laser sensor provides accurate PM2.5 air quality data, displaying how good (or poor) the air quality is. The Igenix Air Purifier covers areas of 50m2, perfect for small and large rooms alike as well as open-plan apartments. 
  • How does the Tuya Smartlife app work? The Igenix Smart Air Purifier has built-in Wi-Fi functionality, meaning you can use the Tuya Smartlife app, as well as using your Alexa or Google assistant, to control it. The Tuya Smartlife app tells you which mode is currently in use, the ambient temperature, air quality and much more. 
  • How often should the filter be replaced? Filters in Air Purifiers need to be changed every 6 to 12 months, depending on how much you use them. 
  • What’s the story behind Igenix? Since their first product launch in 2002, Igenix’s product range has grown significantly, making them a proven and trusted household brand with a reputation built on providing a diverse range of quality home appliances. Originating from heating and air treatment products, Igenix has since expanded their range to include small kitchen appliances, microwaves, linen care and refrigeration. Simplicity and functionality are the key to all Igenix designs, ensuring that their user-friendly products provide you with proven reliability every time.
