Frequently Asked Questions
What is An Air Purifier?
An air purifier is a device which removes contaminants from the air in a room. These devices are commonly marketed as being beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics, and at reducing or eliminating second hand tobacco smoke.
What is the use of Air Purifier?
Air purifiers are used in industry to remove impurities such as CO2 from air before processing.
Is indoor Air is to be purified? Is yes, then why?
Yes, We need our indoor air being purified because we intake indoor air about 57% in our body, which contains harmful particles which are not visible to us and we inhale that polluted air which may be lead us to various health problem. So, we need to breathe purified/clean air to cure our self from getting unhealthy/ill.
How does the Advanced purification process?
- Treeco Max Pre Filter
- Treeco Ultra Fine Medical Grade HEPA Filter
- Brozek Hexgon Activated Carbon Filter
- PCO- Nano Technology TiO2 Catalyst Filter
- Aseptic Ultraviolet (UV) Lamp
- Polar Plasma Anion (PPA) Ionisation
What are Treeco Max Pre Filter & its function?
Having pre-filters inbuilt into purifiers is a hefty advantage over cleaners that don’t. This is the first step in the filtration process where the pre-filters job is to capture large particles the main filter usually can’t, or particles that get stuck to it. It prevents debris getting into the main filter, and this is why pre-filters come in handy as an additional strength in filter technology.
What are Treeco Ultra Fine Medical Grade HEPA Filter & its function?
– Treeco HEPA-13 filter remove at most 99.97% of 0.3-micrometer particles, and are usually more effective for particles which are larger. HEPA purifiers which filter all the air going into a clean room must be arranged so that no air bypasses the HEPA filter. HEPA filters in vacuum cleaners tend to use two quite different mechanisms to clean the airstream. First, there are one or more outer filters that work like sieves to stop the larger particles of dirt, dust, and hair. Inside those filters, there is a concertina of what looks like folded paper designed to trap the smaller particles. The paper is actually a mat of very dense glass fibers and, unlike the gauze; it doesn’t simply filter out small dust particles like a sieve. Instead, it uses three different mechanisms to catch dust particles as they pass through in the moving airstream. At high air speeds, some particles are caught and trapped as they smash directly into the fibers, while others snag on the fibers as they try to brush by. At lower air speeds, dust particles tend to wander about more randomly through the filter (a process known as Brownian motion after its discoverer, Scottish botanist Robert Brown) and may stick to its fibers as they do so. Together, these three mechanisms allow HEPA filters to catch particles that are both larger and smaller than a certain target size.
What are Brozek Hexagon Activated Carbon Filter & its function?
Activated Carbon is a porous material that can absorb volatile chemicals on a molecular basis, but does not remove larger particles. The adsorption process when using activated carbon must reach equilibrium thus it may be difficult to completely remove contaminants. Activated carbon is merely a process of changing contaminants from a gaseous phase to a solid phase, when aggravated or disturbed contaminants can be regenerated in indoor air sources. Activated carbon can be used at room temperature and has a long history of commercial use. It is normally used in conjunction with other filter technology, especially with HEPA. Other materials can also absorb chemicals, but at higher cost.
What is PCO-Nano Technology TIO2 Catalyst Filter?
Photo catalytic oxidation (PCO) is achieved when you combine UV light rays with a TiO2 coated filter. This process creates hydroxyl radicals and super-oxide ions, which are highly reactive electrons. These highly reactive electrons aggressively combine with other elements in the air, such as bacteria and VOCs. which include harmful pollutant such as formaldehyde, ammonia and many other common contaminates released by building materials and household cleaners generally found in the home. Once bound together, the chemical reaction takes place between the super-charged ion and the pollutant, effectively “oxidizing” (or burning) the pollutant. This breaks the pollutant down into harmless carbon dioxide and water molecules, making the air more purified and sterilized.
What is Aspetic UV Lamp?
Ultraviolet light possesses just the right amount of energy to break organic molecular bonds. As micro-organisms pass by the UV rays radiated from the ultraviolet lamp, this bond breakage translates into cellular or genetic damage for micro-organisms, such as germs, viruses, bacteria, fungi (like molds), etc. This results in the destruction of the micro-organisms resulting in sterilized and germs free clean air for healthy living.
What is Polar Plasma Anion (PPA) Ionizer?
Treeco’s Polar Plasma Anion (PPA) Ionisation uses high voltage to ionize air molecules and generate Negative ions, or anions. Airborne particles, particulate matter laden with germs, virus, and bacteria are attracted to these anions and become negatively charged. These ions are de-ionized by seeking earthed conductors, such as walls and ceilings. This results in disinfected, clean and forest fresh air.

What does PM 2.5 means?
The term fine particles, or particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5), refers to tiny particles or droplets in the air that are two and one half microns or less in width. Like inches, meters and miles, a micron is a unit of measurement for distance. There are about 25,000 microns in an inch. The widths of the larger particles in the PM2.5 size range would be about thirty times smaller than that of a human hair. The smaller particles are so small that several thousand of them could fit on the period at the end of this sentence.
How does PM 2.5 affect health?
Particles in the PM2.5 size range are able to travel deeply into the respiratory tract, reaching the lungs. Exposure to fine particles can cause short-term health effects such as eye, nose, throat and lung irritation, coughing, sneezing, runny nose and shortness of breath. Exposure to fine particles can also affect lung function and worsen medical conditions such as asthma and heart disease. Scientific studies have linked increases in daily PM2.5 exposure with increased respiratory and cardiovascular hospital admissions, emergency department visits and deaths. Studies also suggest that long term exposure to fine particulate matter may be associated with increased rates of chronic bronchitis, reduced lung function and increased mortality from lung cancer and heart disease. People with breathing and heart problems, children and the elderly may be particularly sensitive to PM2.5.
Is there an air quality standard for PM2.5 in outdoor air?
Yes, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established National Ambient Air Quality Standards for PM2.5 in 1997 and revised them in 2006. National Ambient Air Standards are established to be protective of public health. The short-term standard (24-hour or daily average) is 35 micrograms per cubic meter of air (µg/m3) and the long-term standard (annual average) is 15 µg/m3. A microgram is a unit of weight. There are a million micrograms in a gram, and a pound is equal to about 450 grams.
How much electricity does it consume?
Our Air purifier consumes 30 W to 220W.
How do you know to change filter?
When air purifier works for 3000 Hours, then air purifier indicates light to change the filters.
How often do I need to clean/change my filter?
You should always double-check your owner’s manual for specific recommendations, but generally speaking it’s best to clean or change your filters once every 3 to 9 months. Remember, regular cleaning/changing of your filter will ensure the best filtration, increase the life of your machine, and give you peace of mind that you’re breathing easier.
Is there is a child lock mode present to prevent from kids?
Yes, you have this option present in the control panel of the air purifier. You have to press the child lock key present in the control panel for 3 seconds or if you want to unlock the other buttons then again press child lock key for 3 seconds.
When should I clean the filters?
In order to achieve the best purification effect, using in normal family environment, it is recommended to use 2 months time interval (480 hours), a Primary effect filter cleaning and maintenance. If in dusty environment, according to the actual need to clean the filter.
What is Air Quality Index (AQI)?
Air quality indices have been around since the 1970’s, and were pioneered by the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). They use simple formulae to convert ambient air quality data into classifications. Two broad types exist: those using an air quality standard to determine the classification, and those using health impacts to determine the classifications. All Air Quality Indexes present their data in using the familiar ‘traffic light’ scale, with lower classifications colored green (low), and the higher concentrations colored orange or red (severe). AQI are designed to be used by the public, so they can make decisions about their modifying their activities based on air quality. Usually AQI are available on-line and in real-time. Often the data is presented using graphs and tables, and in some cases maps. These websites publish AQI from ambient air quality monitoring sites all around the world – have a look and see if your city is available! In some areas, AQI are used to predict air quality. Future air quality is modeled, using current levels, to produce reasonable predictions for air quality a few days ahead. If you have access to forecast AQI, then you can assess the suitability of your planned activity given the air quality expected on that day. For example, if you live somewhere prone to dust storms, a forecasted AQI may be able to tell you that PM levels might be elevated on a day when you have outdoor activities planned.
How indoor air quality is becoming hazardous for health?
– Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a term which refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions. Source control, filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute contaminants are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings. Residential units can further improve indoor air quality by routine cleaning of carpets and area rugs. EPA has guidelines for frequency of cleaning based on traffic, number of household members, pets, children and smokers. Carpets and rugs act like an air filter and must be cleaned.
How big is the problem with air pollution?
Air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk, says WHO. The global number of deaths as a result of air pollution exposure, inside and outside the home, was 7 million in 2012, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
