Why Customers Love It
The HEPA-Silver Filter has Silver-Ion threads woven into the HEPA style material, protecting it from the growth of harmful bacteria, mold and microbes. In addition, the filter works to provide pure, breathable air by capturing VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) from cleaning products, personal care items and other household materials.
Who Needs It
Customers with asthma and allergy concerns, as well as bacteria and microbe growth typically prefer the HEPA-Silver Filter.
How It Works
Polluted air first passes through Alen's washable Pre-Filter to capture large particles, extending the life of the filter. In the second layer, air moves through a unique, electrostatically charged HEPA style material that attracts and captures dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores and other airborne pollutants. Alen's anti-microbial Silver-Ion threads are woven into the HEPA style material, protecting the filter from harmful bacteria* and microbe growth. In the final layer, clean air passes through a layer of Alen's Activated Carbon, reducing light odors and chemicals commonly found in the air from cleaning products, smoke, cooking, pets and various other household materials.
