Breathe easy with Airfree’s line of home air sterilisers
As the COVID situation continues in Singapore, remote working arrangements and home-based learning have increasingly become the norm. With this added amount of time spent indoors, it’s more important than ever to ensure that the air we breathe at home is free from pollutants and other nasties. Many of you might be wondering what are the best air purifiers or air sterilisers on the market. Here’s a look at why this air steriliser is one of the easiest ways to make sure that you and your family breathe easy at home.
Is an air purifier the same as an air steriliser?
Most air purifiers rely on HEPA filters that capture airborne microorganisms and other particles. While this filters out some pollutants, it doesn’t necessarily sanitise the air in your home. The filters must also be regularly replaced; this can not only be costly but it potentially exposes you to viruses that remain alive in the filters. In addition, air purifiers are not completely silent.
On the other hand, air sterilisers use a heated element to disinfect the air, eliminating the need for replaceable filters; this is good for your wallet and the environment. The use of heat also makes air sterilisers more effective at killing viruses, bacteria and mould spores in the air.
How do Airfree’s air sterilisers help protect you from COVID-19?
Airfree air sterilisers utilise the company’s patented TSS (Thermo-dynamic Sterilisation System) technology. This works to draw air into a heated ceramic core where viruses and bacteria are destroyed.
According to US non-profit research organisation MRIGlobal, Airfree products can destroy 80.5% of the COVID-19 virus when released into a controlled chamber. Click here for more information on how Airfree combats COVID-19.

The company’s founder originally designed the air sterilisers to help with his son’s recurrent allergies. So it should come as no surprise that Airfree also offers models for children’s bedrooms.
