What is the best air purifier for smoke? With Summer around the corner, Australia braces itself for the ever constant threat of catastrophic bush fires that generate dangerous smoke which greatly reduces air quality.

Bushfire Smoke In Sydney Helped By Air Purifier

Summer in Australia. Of BBQs and beaches, backyard cricket and blistering heat. And it is the blistering heat that is the cause of one of Australia’s most dangerous by-products of our brilliant summers: bush fires.

Bush fires in Australia are all too common. It is estimated that there are between 45,000 and 60,000 bush fires in Australia each year. OF course, these bush fires vary in their ferocity and damage. And often they are the result of controlled burning to mitigate the potential damage of uncontrolled bush fires.

It is these uncontrolled bush fires that Australians are most concerned with and unfortunately only too knowledgeable about. In recent years we have had the catastrophic bush fire events of the Black Saturday bush fires in Victoria in 2009 and the 2019/20 bushfires that affected large swathes of South-Eastern Australia.

One of the often-under-reported effects of bush fire is the impact bush fire smoke has on air quality and the impacts that can have on human health. According to the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, bush fire smoke “comes from burning forests, trees and grass. It contains many different substances, from ash and particles we can see, to much smaller particles and gases. Very small particles (measured as PM2.5) in the smoke are invisible, but can affect our health as they are inhaled deeper into the lungs.”

So how do we treat bush fire smoke in how homes and businesses? Due to the fact smoke is a collection of tiny particles and our homes and businesses have ventilation that allow the transfer of air from the outside to indoors, it’s nearly impossible to prevent all outside air from entering, as it can seep through walls, ceilings, and electrical outlets.

However, air purifiers can be an extremely effective way to combat this problem. So, what is the best air purifier for smoke?

The Intellipure Solution

Intellipure air purifiers are able to transform your home of office into the haven you are seeking. They may not have the name recognition of other brands, but the Intellipure Disinfecting Filtration System (DFS) technology is unmatched for both efficacy and performance.

Unlike other air purifiers, Intellipure is capable of capturing and removing ultrafine particles due to its DFS technology. They are capable of removing particles as small as 0.007 microns at a 99.99% efficiency. What does that mean? The size of smoke particles varies, but is it commonly agreed that smoke particles are generally around 0.1 microns in size. Intellipure’s patented technology can capture and remove these harmful airborne particles from your indoor environment.

Smoke pollution probably killed more than 400 people during the 2019 bush fires

A study overlaying hospital admissions with air quality data, tracking deadly PM 2.5 smoke particles, found 445 excess deaths attributable to smoke from the 2019-20 bushfires. It also found 3,340 excess admissions to hospitals for heart and lung issues, and more than 1,000 admissions to hospitals for asthma.

Unlike other brands of air purifiers, Intellipure’s DFS technology creates a microbiostasis condition within the filter itself, meaning harmful pathogens are securely retained within the air purifier itself and not redistributed and recirculated back into the indoor environment.

This is particularly important, especially when discussing strategies to remediate smoke, as you can be ensured that the air you are breathing has had the smoke particles completely removed.

But don’t just take our word for it! Watch the video comparing Intellipure versus other well-known brands and the quality of the air after passing through their respective air filtration systems!
