Maximum filtration. Minimum noise.

Only Blueair air purifiers use HEPASilent™ technology which provides maximum filtration with minimum noise. This dual filtration technology pioneered by Blueair combines electrostatic charging of particles and mechanical filtration using a unique filter design. Blueair air purifiers, therefore, produce more² clean air faster, cleaning your air quicker and much more quietly³ than traditional HEPA air purifiers.
