Get through winter with a quality air purifier

Featured

Don’t let the ailments associated with the season get the better of you – create pure indoor air, breathe freely and enjoy good health this winter.

The sudden icy temperatures over the past week are proof that winter is well and truly upon us and, while many may associate allergies with the summer months, the truth is that winter is a breeding ground for the particles and germs responsible for poor health during this time.

Studies have shown that most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors in winter – if not more – and, with the cold season being the time dusty winter coats and blankets are brought out, and long-dormant heating devices powered up, indoor air quality hits an annual low.

On top of this, the chances of transmission of common winter ailments rise steeply, due to the bacteria and viruses that cause them densely populating indoor air.

In fact, if we had to really grasp the extent of allergens, particles, germs and irritants that circulate through our indoor air during the winter months, we would probably wonder how it is that we can breathe at all.

The good news is, using a high-quality air purifier can reduce – and even completely eradicate – winter allergy symptoms and significantly reduce your susceptibility for catching a cold or getting the flu.

pbOffice (a division of PBSA) offers a range of top-quality air purifiers by IDEAL, which feature all the vital components needed to turn contaminated indoor air into pure, healthy and allergen-free air – including HEPA filters and intelligent air quality sensors.

Our devices work on a six-stage AEON Blue air purification system, which filters almost 100% of the smallest particles and pathogenic germs from the polluted air before they reach your airway. Additionally, the clean air is enriched with negative ions – oxygen atoms that are charged with an extra electron (as found in nature) and are proven to have significant health benefits.

With pbOffice’s air purification solutions, you can safely say goodbye to indoor air pollutants like viruses and bacteria, pollen, animal hair, chemical fumes, dust, odours, tobacco smoke and aerosol fumes.

This winter, don’t succumb – invest in and enjoy a quality air purifier for your home and office and say goodbye to the “sick season” blues.

pbOffice adds new air washer to IDEAL portfolio

Featured

AW60In the continued quest to bring healthy, pure air to your indoor spaces, pbOffice – a division of PBSA (formerly Pitney Bowes SA) – has just introduced a new IDEAL air purifying combination unit, the AW60.

Suitable for rooms of up to 60m², the IDEAL AW60 builds on its popular predecessor, the AW40, and features an additional HEPA combination filter and automatic function. The latest addition to the air washer family combines air purification with optimal humidification, for ideally purified and humidified air.

The device has a HEPA combination filter with integrated carbon anti-odour filter. Water, as a natural filter, works together with the HEPA filter to efficiently bind dust, allergens and particle-bound odours in the air. At the same time, the AW60 provides optimal air humidity through specifically structured humidifying disks and by applying cold evaporation.

To create a healthy indoor climate, air humidity is kept within the optimal range of 40% to 60% by a fully automated function on the AW60.

Additionally, the automatically selectable PlasmaWave system actively removes bacteria, viruses and mould spores from the indoor air, while antibacterial CleanCel technology on the water tank and humidifying disks inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi and acarids.

The device features high-quality touch control and modes for automatic, manual and sleep. In automatic mode the AW60 monitors the air humidity by means of the hygrostat, and automatically adjusts the power – although this can also be controlled manually.

Night mode allows for ultra-silent operation – an ideal mode for bedrooms. There is also a timer function for optimal pre-selection of the desired runtime, including two, four or eight hours.

Easy to clean and maintain, the AW60 is also very energy-efficient.
