Blueair 500 Series Personal Air Purifier - BA501
Blueair is the system for people living with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions, or for anyone who wants cleaner, more breathable air. The BA501 effectively purifies air in rooms as large as 580 square feet. Using patented two-stage HEPA Silent & trade technology, it captures 99.97% of the tiniest 0.1 micron particles on level one, including allergy-provoking pollen grains, dust mites, mold spores and pet dander particles.
Our efficient SurroundAir vent system delivers exceptional air exchange (up to 500 cubic feet per minute) without annoying drafts, performance that earned the BA501 Best of Class ranking in independent AHAM testing of Clean Air Delivery Rate.
Easy maintenance: simply open the unit's lid, lift out and drop in filters every 6 months. Choose the optional SmokeStop Filter Kit for better protection from smoke and other airborne gases.
- Superior Quality
Blueair is designed, engineered and built for people who expect the very best and don't want to compromise on health, design or function. The Blueair system housing is made of galvanized steel, rather than less durable plastic. The fan and blower are manufactured by EBM, a maker of telecom and medical equipment. Blueair systems offer an exceptionally long product life and carry a 10-year limited warranty.
- Cleans Air Quietly
Sophisticated materials and precision engineering allow Blueair to clean indoor air without the noise associated with less advanced units. On the lowest setting, the units emit no more sound than a desktop computer. To achieve exceptionally quiet operation, Blueair¹s patented HEPASilent filter technology traps particles two ways: with mechanical and electrostatic filters. This combination creates a filter system through which air flows freely. Most air cleaners require a powerful, noisy fan to pull air through densely packed filters. Since air passes easily through Blueair filter media, the fan doesn't have to work as hard or as loud. Even the housing is designed with quiet operation in mind, replacing sound-sonant plastic with noise-muffling steel.
- Surround Air
Instead of discharging a windy stream of filtered air, the Blueair BA501 diffuses air gently through an area six times greater than the average air cleaner. Operating on its lowest setting, Blueair produces virtually no noticeable draft, while still providing an exceptional air exchange rate. Blueair's SurroundAir system achieves peak performance without annoying drafts by drawing in dirty air from the sides and bottom, moving it through a less dense filter media, and releasing clean, filtered air from the sides and top.
- Low Energy Cost
Blueair's phenomenally low power usage means you can run the system 24/7 without a jump in electricity consumption. In fact, it costs about the same to clean the air in your home as it does to power a single lightbulb: only 07 watts on low to 120 watts on high.
- Environmentally Aware
Blueair products offer exceptional performance without polluting the environment. Blueair replaces standard triclosan-coated paper or glass filter fibers, which can harm the environment when released into the waste stream, with safer, nontoxic polypropylene. This revolutionary filter media is one of the least harmful plastics, producing only carbon dioxide and water as it decomposes. Because polypropylene is waterproof, our filters naturally resist contamination from bacteria, viruses and mold, without chemical additives or washes. Blueair even uses a special powder coat finish that produces no chemical outgassing.
- Award-winning Swedish Design
The union of visually pleasing form and effective function is a hallmark of Swedish design, and Blueair is no exception. Its sleek contemporary look has earned Blueair one of the most prestigious design awards in Scandinavia, the Excellent Swedish Design award. In fact, the Blueair unit resides in a permanent exhibit at The National Museum in Stockholm. At Blueair, we design air purification systems to meet your home's aesthetic standards without sacrificing performance.
- Easy to Use
Plug it in, select the speed setting, and forget it. Blueair works so quietly, at first you may find yourself wondering if it's turned on. Just check the bright blue power on light. Blueair filters require no weekly additives or filter washing. The grilles and powder-coated steel exterior are easy to wipe clean, and won't pick up grime and oily stains the way plastics can. When the filter needs to be replaced (every six months), just open the lid, lift out the old filters and drop the new ones in. No screws, hooks or tools and less than one minute of your time are required. Used filters are 100% recyclable, and release no toxins into landfills or the air.
