Astma

  • Description
    • What is Asthma?

      Asthma is an inflammatory disease related with the interaction between genetic and environmental factors that manifests as episodes of breathlessness, with the reduction or even blocking of the air flow as result of this respiratory system attack.
      Asthma can affect anyone, but it presents a higher prevalence in children and youth. Around 150 million people worldwide suffer from asthma, and it is estimated that, in Portugal, the number of individuals affected by this problem surpasses the 600 thousand!




      Asthma symptoms may occur or grow worse in the presence of:

      - Prolonged exposure to dust mites of household dust (found mainly in mattresses, pillows and carpets)
      - Viral Infection
      - Pets
      - Fungi Spores
      - Exposure to certain types of bacteria
      - Birds feathers
      - Smoke, mostly of tobacco and firewood
      - Pollen, especially in spring
      - Air temperature changes
      - Inhalable Chemicals
      - Physical exercise

      AIRFREE® air purifiers have a crucial importance for the asthmatics population (that needs pure air to relief the respiratory tract) by eliminating the main allergen responsible for the triggering of crises, like dust mites allergens and pet allergens.

      How does it work?
      It drastically reduces air allergens by incinerating microorganisms. As a result, contaminated air is dragged through the Airfree® ceramic centre and destroyed at high temperatures. This air purifying cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is ensured by numerous tests.



      AIRFREE® characteristics:

      Efficient - Tested and approved in real environments (without simulations) at the world’s best institutes.
      Airfree® destroys any microorganism that passes through the ceramic steriliser regardless of its dangerousness or size.

      Silent – Absolutely no noise

      Exclusive - Internationally patented technology and Airfree® exclusive, the only one that also reduces ozone concentration.

      Economic - No costs with replacement of parts nor significant power costs because Airfree® has a consumption of only 48 W per hour.

      Convenient - switch the device on and don't worry about it, since it doesn't require maintenance nor cleaning

      No contraindications - Absolutely natural process that uses no chemicals or toxic, neither radiation, and that also does not interfere in the environment's temperature or humidity.

  • FAQ´S
    • 1. Are there any side effects?

      No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air with meaningless heat contribution to the room. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® can be used in homes and
      offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.


      2. How do I shut the night light off?*
      To change night light intensity press the sensor on the top of Airfree´s logo. You can choose the best light intensity or shut the lights off. (*) The models E40, E60, E80, E125 don't present the night light.


      3. Can I install Airfree® in my walking closet ?
      Yes, as long as it has at least 330 ft³ (10 m³). Airfree® should not be placed under shelves or its efficiency will be reduced.


      4. Can I use Airfree® in air conditioned rooms?
      Yes.


      5. How do I know if Airfree® is no longer working?
      Check the top lid, if it is warm Airfree® is working.


      6. Can I place Airfree® at the corridor to reach adjacent rooms?
      No. Airfree® will just reduce air pollution in the corridor’s area.


      7. Can I place Airfree® in a closed room?
      Yes. Please remember such a room must have at least 330 ft³ (10 m3).


      8. Can I change Airfree® from one room to another?
      Airfree® must always be plugged in the same room 24 hours a day. Airfree’s patented technology works gradually and cannot have its cycle interrupted. Moving it from one room to another will interrupt the cycle
      and the room will start being contaminated again.


      9. Should I turn off Airfree® when I leave house?
      No. Airfree® must always be ON.


      10. What happens if Airfree® is disconnected or there was a black out?
      Airfree® will take approximately the samre time to recover the previous reduced contamination level.


      11. Does CADR measure the effectiveness of the Airfree®?
      Not at all. CADR is not designed to test the Airfree® technology. The AHAM seal (usually found on the back of an air cleaner’s box) lists three Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) numbers: one for tobacco smoke, one for pollen and one for dust. The CADR indicates volume of filtered air delivered by an air cleaner. The reason why CADR is not designed for Airfree® is because Airfree® does not filter but destroys microorganisms instead, such reduction of bacteria, molds, viruses and other microorganisms can only be measured after air sample incubation in a microbiology lab. Airfree® destroys (not trap or attract to other surface) any microorganism regardless of how small they might be. 99.99% of all microorganisms are fully destroyed when passing through the Airfree® patented ceramic core.


      12. Does Airfree® eliminate bacteria and viruses?
      Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into the sterilizing TSS™ ceramic core. Please check the independent
      bacteria and virus tests at our website. 


      13. How does Airfree® destroy dust mites?
      Mold reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mold dependant dust mite population. Airfree® also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed into the air by dust mite feces and skeletons that trigger respiratory allergies and asthma. 


      14. How does Airfree® eliminate fungi and molds?
      As mentioned before, Airfree® eliminates airborne microorganisms there included molds, fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new mold colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne mold spores.
      Please check the independent mold tests at our website.


      15. Does Airfree® reduce tobacco smell?
      Yes, Airfree® reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.


      16. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
      Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. Contrary to other technologies the smallest the microorganisms the easiest they are destroyed inside the TSS™ ceramic core capillaries. Please check the independent virus test at our website. 


      17. Does Airfree® make any humidity level change in the room?
      No.


      18. Does Airfree® release any gas or chemical product?
      No. Airfree’s sterilization process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.


      19. Does Airfree® heat up a room?
      No. Airfree® does not make any noticeable increase in the room temperature. Just for comparison two Airfree® devices plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as one 155 lb (70 kg) adult.


      20. Does Airfree® need filter replacement?
      No.


      21. Does Airfree® night light interfere with Airfree® sterilizing function?*
      No. The night light has an aesthetic effect and may simply be used as a night light in children or newborn bedrooms. (*) The models E40, E60, E80, E125 don't present the night light.


      22. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
      All living microorganisms are basically composed by carbon, oxygen an nitrogen. Since Airfree® reaches nearly 400 °F, all the components decompose into carbone dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or microscopic ashes) may remain inside the device or over the top lid during the process. It should be noted that all happens in a microscopic level, so all those residues are a very small fraction of the microorganisms original microscopic size, in other words meaningless.
