Everyone on earth knows that air pollution is hazardous to health. The effects of air pollution can have devastating effects on your health and the environment. In scientific terms, air pollution encompasses a variety of pollutants like nitrates, ozone, sulphur dioxide and PM10. In fact PM2.5, one of most deadly forms of pollutants, has been witnessed in an alarming volume in the air in some of the Indian cities. Exposure to PM2.5 in children means reduced lung functioning, increase in asthma and respiratory illnesses.
Japanese consumer electronics firm Panasonic has come up with specially designed air purifiers for the consumers to combat poisonous particles like PM 2.5 in the air. We got the F-PXH55M air purifier for a product evaluation, let us check out some of its key features.
Out of the box, the F-PXH55M comes across as a pleasing and neat-looking piece of equipment that will surely not look odd in your house. I installed the device in my living room for about a fortnight and this Panasonic air purifier is pretty adept at making the room pollution-free. Company officials inform that their new air purifier helps to combat the growing concern of indoor pollution and allergies.
The F-PXH55M has a house dust catcher and 3D circulation air flow system which helps to eliminate some of the big particles like hair and dust, and the fine dust particles, germs and mould. I tested the air purifier in my Noida home and it is pretty efficient in removing dust particles flying all over in the air due to construction in the neighbourhood. As far as the 3D circulation airflow feature is concerned, basically this enables suction of the particles from the front panel of the air purifier, which according to me is a more efficient way of functioning.
Then, the F-PXH55M has Nanoe technology integrated in its system which not only improves the quality of air by inhibiting the micro particles with size upto PM2.5, but also improves the living environment and health conditions for pets. At a technical level, Nanoe is water-wrapped capsule with plentiful OH radicals. OH radicals possess the characteristics of inhibiting bacteria and viruses and improving air quality. Also it helps in keeping skin hydrated and reducing odour. Various tests have proven that Nanoe technology can improve the living environment and health condition of pets.
Then, the Panasonic air purifier’s Composite Air Filter consists of three kinds of technology—Super alleru-buster, Green Tea Catechin and Anti-bacteria Enzyme. Panasonic claims that the air pirifier can inhibit 17 kinds of virus, bacteria and allergens up to 99%.
