In a bid to address rising air pollution, Panasonic India on Friday launched seven new air purifier models for consumers to combat poisonous particles present indoors.
Equipped with "Nanoe" technology, the new range enhances the quality of indoor air by filtering out harmful particles, including PM2.5. The company adds that its air purifiers remove odour, and help keep the skin hydrated. Panasonic is also touting Econavi technology that monitors user behaviour to reduce unnecessary operations by the air purifier.
PM2.5 is tiny particulate matter that tends to penetrate into the gas exchange regions of the lung and may lead to respiratory and cardio-vascular problems.
"Quality of indoor air is all about health and comfort. Therefore, it is important that we breathe healthy air when we are inside our homes and offices. With lack of ventilation in today's houses, it is all the more important to monitor the air quality and take actions for indoor air cleaning. Ahead of the winter season when smog in the cities will be at its peak, we have introduced 7 models of air-purifiers. At Panasonic, it is our continuous endeavour to enhance the quality of life of our consumers as it is core to our principle values. Our new range of air-purifiers and its technology ensures that it monitors the indoor air-quality and improve it as per the requirement. Equipped with Nanoe technology, HEPA/Composite Air Filter and Econavi technology, Panasonic air-purifiers make sure to filter out harmful particles, including PM2.5, out of the air and provide a healthy and safe environment to breathe in," said Syed Moonis Ali Alvi, General Manager, Purifier Business, Panasonic India, in a statement.
The new range is equipped with two types of air-filters, HEPA Composite and Composite Air Filter. The latter consists of Super Alleru-Buster, Green Tea Catechin, and Anti-Bacteria Enzyme, all three of which combined are said to help inhibit 17 kinds of virus, bacteria, and allergens up to 99 percent. While the HEPA Composite Air Filter is said to remove up to 99.7 percent particles from the air.
