Just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t there!
KUALA LUMPUR, 1 September 2022 – Braving through the endemic phase and with the growing concern of Covid-19 hike cases, it is crucial to safeguard the air quality of your home and office. We should not let our guards down when it comes to providing the safest living environment for our families.
According to the American Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Reports on Environment (ROE), indoor air is 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air and is among the top 5 environmental risks to public health. This is partly because indoor air is not circulated as often as outdoor air, allowing many airborne pollutants such as dust, pet fur, pollen, dust mites and other biological viruses and bacteria to continue thriving indoors.
Among other air pollutants are asbestos – used in insulation for pipes, floor tiles and building materials, carbon monoxide – found in kerosene lamps and gas heaters, pesticides – often used at home to rid insects and other pests, second-hand smoke – caused by cigarettes, and volatile organic compounds – such as paints, wood preservatives, aerosol sprays, air fresheners and even disinfectants.
To rid indoor air of all sorts of harmful pollutants that cannot be detected with the naked eye, an air purifier is the best solution for the problem. Air purifiers have long been proven to refresh stale air and immensely improve poor air quality indoors. They have also been known to minimise health issues caused by pollutants such as respiratory infections, asthma and even irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Poor air quality can also cause headaches, fatigue or even skin rash due to allergies to certain pollutants.
In fact, air purifiers have been a popular addition to indoor living spaces thanks to the many benefits they bring. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, air purifiers had been helping many Malaysians improve the air quality in their homes. Aside from improving overall health and wellbeing, air purifiers also remove mould from the air, eliminate pollen from indoor or outdoor plants, neutralise unpleasant odours and improve overall sleep quality. They are also known to filter pollutants that cannot be removed via normal everyday cleaning.
In a tech report which studied Malaysia’s Air Purifiers Market growth, it found that Malaysia’s air purifier market was valued at more than USD68 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a rate of 5.41% in the forecast period 2022-2026*. This is a testament that owning an air purifier is essential and there is a growing importance in choosing the right one for your daily needs.
One of the leading air purifiers in the Malaysian market that has proven to rid and inactivate 99.999% of pollutants belongs to the Coway brands. Among the more sought-after ones are the Lombok III and Storm air purifiers that have been cleaning the air in many homes to date. What makes these air purifiers so unique and effective is the double HEPA filter, the gold standard filter that has proven to inactivate 99.999% of harmful viruses, including the highly contagious Covid-19 Omicron variant as well as the Human Coronavirus.
Recently, Coway also launched a brand-new technologically advanced smart air purifier – Noble. Complete with a world-class award-winning design, the Noble air purifier is a must-have in every indoor space. Apart from looking sleek and classy, it can significantly improve air quality and overall health.
This is accomplished with the five different filter types that come complete with an added UVC sterilisation to make up the unique 6-step filtration system built within the Noble air purifier. This unique design provides a constant flow of extra pure and clean air.
How does it work? The first step is the 4D Pre-filter that is responsible for removing large dust particles, hair and pet hair. The second is the Smoke Filter that removes harmful gases such as Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) while the third step reduces dog and cat allergens and also dust mites with the Allergen Filter. Step 4 comprises the Deodorisation Filter that eliminates bad odour and harmful gases. Then comes step 5, where the 4D Double HEPA Filter is all geared up to inactivate up to 99.999% of viruses including the Covid-19 Omicron variant, Influenza A (H1N1) and Human Coronavirus. Finally, the UVC Sterilisation inactivates up to 99.9% of bacteria such as E.Coli.
This chic looking air purifier also features the first-of-its-kind 4D filter that provides 360° purification, specially designed to capture, clean and circulate air from every direction. The Noble air purifier also incorporates the latest smart technologies by alerting users of real-time air quality at a glance. The LED indicator lights up at the top of the purifier to notify users with four different colours to indicate current indoor air pollution levels. It will light up in blue for good, green for normal, yellow for poor and red for bad.
It also comes with dust, light and gas sensors along with four mode settings – smart, turbo, silent and eco. Weighing 15kg and measuring 320 x 320 x 805mm (W x D x H), this sleek design can fit into any living space, even in small spaces without being a hindrance.
