How Air Purifiers Work for Smoke

Our HEPA-FreshPlus filters contain a HEPA layer to remove ash and super fine particulates as well as activated carbon, which removes the odors and chemicals associated with wildfire smoke. Our recommended air purifiers come equipped with HEPA-FreshPlus filters.

Which Air Purifier is Right for Me?

The primary difference between the BreatheSmart and the BreatheSmart FIT50 is in the composition of the activated carbon layer in the HEPA-FreshPlus filter.

The BreatheSmart has 2.75 lbs of Standard Activated Carbon, which is great for odors and chemicals while the BreatheSmart FIT50 HEPA-FreshPlus filter contains about 40% Treated Activated Carbon.Treated Activated Carbon is designed to target particularly noxious and carcinogenic airborne chemicals such as Formaldehyde, SO2, NO2, CL2 and H2S. Depending on the distance between your home and the wildfires and what is burning, noxious chemicals may or may not be a concern for you. If your home/office is within 5 miles of the fires, we recommend the BreatheSmart FIT50, but if your home is beyond 5 miles from the fires, the BreatheSmart would be the ideal solution for airborne soot and smoke odors.

If you have questions or concerns, give our air purifier experts a call, and we can help make a recommendation for your unique situation.
