Most of us already know the benefits of keeping our homes clean and germ-free, but for the past 18 months, this has become more important than ever. From disinfecting surfaces, sanitizing your hands and possessions to keeping your home as clean as possible, there are probably a bunch of things you have done to make sure that your living space is safe for you and your loved ones.
While it’s easy to wipe physical surfaces clean, the air that we breathe is something that you can’t hold on to even if you intend on giving it a good scrub. Enter: air purifiers, the latest home trend in Malaysia and a must-have item for any household, as it can remove air contaminants such as bacteria, allergens, pollutants, and other germs you want to steer clear from. Moreover, as we spend most of our time indoors, our exposure to poor air quality can put us at risk, and this is where a smart and powerful air purifier can be a lifesaver.
With a sea of options available in the market, here are some consideration factors you should know before purchasing one for your home:
Indoor Air is More Polluted than the Outdoors
It may come as a surprise but several studies conducted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicated that indoor air pollution levels can be two to five times higher than outdoors’. Sources of indoor pollution include combustion emissions from stove fires, cigarettes, pesticides, and the pollution brought in from the outdoors. Therefore, the presence of an air purifier at home is crucial for filtering out pollutant particles. For example, the Samsung Smart Air Purifier, 60㎡, can filter various pollutants thanks to its multi-layered filtration system. The pre-filter works to cast out large dust particles, followed by a carbon filter that eliminates harmful gases.
The High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter will purify up to 99.97% of dust, allergens, and bacteria, measuring up to 0.3μm. This helps users who have respiratory problems or allergies to breathe better indoors. The Samsung Air Purifier is also equipped with a Laser PM Sensor to detect dust and particles less than 1.0 in size and various harmful gases. This helps to improve the quality of the air residents breathe.
Air purifiers can Eliminate Bad Odors and Harmful Gases
While air purifiers are used primarily to reduce indoor air pollution, it is also excellent for reducing odors and gases. For this purpose, pick an air purifier that is equipped with a filter that includes activated carbon. Samsung’s Multi-Layered Purification System not only extracts larger dust particles but comes with an Activated Carbon Deodorization Filter that removes harmful gases while the HEPA Filtration does its work. It has been proven to remove harmful gases such as toluene, xylene, benzene, ethylbenzene, styrene, and formaldehyde.
How Fast It Cleans Your Air Matters
The Clean Air Delivery Rate, or CADR, indicates the speed of air that is being cleaned within a particular room. A higher CADR rating means that the air purifier is able to clean air at a faster rate – an important point to factor in, ensuring that your machine can purify air much more quickly, reaching one corner to another in no time.
Thanks to its powerful fan that can quickly distribute clean air in multiple directions for wider coverage, the Samsung Smart Air Purifier with its 3 Way Air Flow system not only purifies air faster but also comes with a high CADR rating. For more effective cleaning, make sure the windows and doors are closed when you have an air purifier working.
Moreover, you can also move the air purifier to any location that needs more intensive purifying using its hidden moving wheels.Its portability allows you to clean the air in your living room during the day, and your bedroom at night. Since the wheels are neatly hidden underneath, it doesn’t spoil the overall design nor requires additional effort to move it around.
Air Purifiers Don’t Have to be Noisy
While fans on older models have been known to make a certain level of noise, especially when detecting and filtering harmful gases or substances, modern solutions have come a long way to be better equipped with smarter operating modes to minimize this issue.
Samsung Smart Air Purifier, for example, comes with Auto Mode and Sleep Mode features. In Auto Mode, the device will detect the level of air pollution in the room and automatically adjust the power and speed of the fan. Sleep Mode creates a softer and quieter airflow without any display of lighting. As a result, you can save effort and reduce energy use over time.

Checking the air pollution level in your home has never been more easy thanks to the SmartThings mobile app. Besides checking the air quality, you can now remotely control the Samsung Smart Air Purifier to turn it on or off, monitor the status of the filter and control other functions with a few clicks or by using your voice.
