These days we tend to spend more time indoors, be it at office or inside our homes.
These days we tend to spend more time indoors, be it at office or inside our homes. We even coax our children to stay indoors as we want to protect them from outside air, which, at times is extremely polluted and can lead to serious respiratory diseases. Much progress has been made in the West in improving outdoor air quality and limit values have been set for several pollutants. However, indoor air quality also requires attention because this is where we spend most of our time. In short, the air in our houses also needs cleaning.
Sensing a market opportunity, several companies have come up with hi-tech air purifiers, which are elegant-looking, efficient and greatly help to reduce indoor pollution. Few days back, water purifier Kent RO Systems had sent their air purifier to us for a product evaluation. This time around, Eureka Forbes has introduced an innovative solution to make our homes pollution-free and they were kind enough to send us their new Dr Aeroguard SCPR 700 for a review. Company officials reckon that the indoor air that people breathe (especially residing in traffic-prone areas) can be extremely hazardous to our health without any telltale signs. Let us check out the performance of their air purifier.
The 8-kg, R24,990-a-piece Dr Aeroguard SCPR 700 is sleek, elegantly designed and a compact machine. Due to its small size, it can fit in a variety of places like the corner of a bedroom, TV room, drawing or the dining area.
Out of the box, the SCPR 700 is easy to set up and operate. It is equipped with an air quality sensor and indicator. It is powered by Activeshield x 2 filtration system; what this means is that it has double the efficiency of purifiers in its class to eliminate sub-micron
respirable particles and infection-carrying microbes in the air.
The Eureka Forbes air purifier has a 5-stage sir flow control, designed to adjust to multiple levels of cleaning based on the air quality. An air quality indicator keeps an eye on the quality of the ambient air to ensure complete protection. It has intelligent technology inside to automatically choose the best setting based on the pollution level and room size. Typically, red bar indicates that the room air quality is bad whereas blue bar indicates that the room air quality is good. This indication helps to determine whether the room is purified or not. However, based on the incoming air and the area where the air purifier is kept, this sensor will keep on displaying red or blue light.
I have been using the Dr Aeroguard SCPR 700 for over two weeks now and I feel that it will be very popular in the homes of people who suffer from allergies and asthma, as well as in the homes of smokers and pet-owners. This is on account of its 9-stage purification process, which can efficiently eliminate chemicals, gases, smoke and other odours that are present in our homes. Using electrostatic attraction, the anti-dust filter of Dr Aeroguard SCPR700 removes particulate matter such as dust, dirt, pet hair from the air. The anti-allergen filter traps airborne particles such as dust, fungal spores and pollen that can cause and trigger allergic reactions.
In summary, Dr Aeroguard SCPR700 is a very good air purifier that works nicely in small and medium-sized rooms. It is very effective at eliminating smoke and odours and gives the room it is installed in—clean and fresh air. It is also very light and portable, making it an attractive choice for someone who needs to move it around a lot.
