Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates indicate that indoor air pollutant levels may be as much as two to five times higher than outdoor levels. This fact is particularly troubling given that the average American spends up to 90 percent of their time indoors. Moreover, many of the most common indoor pollutants, including pollen, dust, airborne mold, tobacco smoke, and animal dander, have been associated with both allergies and asthma. Consequently, nearly everyone can benefit from improved air quality in the home or workplace. Individuals living in areas with generally poor air quality, with smokers or pets in the household, and those suffering from allergies, asthma, or are prone to bronchial or respiratory infections may derive even greater benefit from air purifiers.
In addition, Advanced Pure Air’s multi-stage air purifiers use advanced filtration technologies that not only fight pollution and odors but actually trap and destroy bacteria, viruses, and other airborne germs. Obviously, this reduces the risk of you and your family contracting diseases associated with these harmful airborne microorganisms.
Advanced Pure Air uses advanced multi-stage air purification technologies including washable pre-filters, HEPA filters, activated carbon, ultraviolet light, negative ions, titanium dioxide germicidal sanitizers, and optional (on-off) ozone generation. With these technologies, we’re able to filter or destroy a whole range of harmful airborne particles that old fashioned single-stage, or even 2-, 3- or 4-stage air purifiers, just can’t match. Advanced Pure Air’s state-of-the-art air filtration systems effectively trap or destroy: dust, pollen, pet dander, tobacco smoke, air pollutants, chemical and toilet odors as well as bacteria, viruses, germs, mold, and more.
The most obvious advantages are in terms of price. Central, induct systems can cost several thousand dollars to purchase and hundreds more to have professionally installed and maintained. Advanced Pure Air, on the other hand, offers state-of-the-art, multi-stage portable systems starting at less than $200 and requires no professional installation. Frankly, in many cases, it would be cheaper to install a portable system in every room of your house than to install a single central in-duct system.
Besides these cost considerations, however, there is a great deal of evidence to suggest that portable air purifiers may be more effective than central purification units. This is primarily because walls and other home and workplace obstructions often reduce in-duct air purifier effectiveness from room to room. Moreover, it's almost impossible to find in-duct systems that use multiple filtration technology that can trap the variety of airborne pollutants, odors, and germs that portable Advanced Pure Air systems combat.
Lastly, central systems would have to be on 24/7 to add continuous purification to the air. So, the energy cost alone with a central duct system would prove prohibitive for the average consumer. Advanced Pure Air portable air purification systems are energy efficient so you could have one in every room of your house and still use less power than a single centralized system.
Not at all! Advanced Pure Air's energy-efficient systems operate on only 40 to 65 watts of power, unlike many of our competitor's air purifiers that have exorbitant power needs which can cost you hundreds of dollars per year. Advanced Pure Air purifiers use less than the average light bulb and cost you only a few dollars per month even if you run it continuously.

Generally, air purifiers should be in the room(s) you spend the most time in. As such, living rooms and dens are a common choice, and given that we spend approximately eight hours a day sleeping, the bedroom is another common choice. However, this may vary significantly depending on your circumstances. For example, if you have pets, you may want to place the air purifier in the pet’s sleeping or play area to reduce pet dander. If you have young children, you may choose to have it in the nursery. If you have smokers in your household, you may want to place your air purifier in the area in which they most frequently smoke. Also, if you’re buying a system for the office, you’ll generally want it in your work area. Moreover, given the portability and relatively low cost of Advanced Pure Air® systems, you can always move the system from room to room as circumstances warrant, have multiple systems for different rooms, or one for home and another for the office.
In the room you choose to have your air purifier, there are placement rules you should observe to maximize performance:
A) Try to put the purifier near a high traffic area, vent, or fan, to increase air circulation and improve system efficiency.
B) For average size rooms, placing the unit at least 4 inches from the wall in a corner is generally acceptable. For larger rooms, your system will perform better near the center of the room. If you are putting the purifier against the wall, it will function better if it is in the middle of the wall, not a corner.
C) Be certain that the intake and exhaust vents are not obstructed by furniture or other household objects.
D) If you frequently use your air purifier's negative ion or ozone generation features, we recommend positioning the unit higher off the ground. For example, on a shelf, since both ozone and negative ion particles are heavier than air and tend to float downward.
Ozone is a naturally occurring form of oxygen in the Earth’s stratosphere that shields us from harmful ultraviolet radiation. In the proper concentration, ozone is both safe and extremely effective in killing bacteria, viruses, and other harmful airborne microbes. It is also very efficient at eliminating cigarette smoke and odors. While the EPA and OSHA both warn that ozone concentrations higher than 0.05 ppm (parts per million) may be unsafe, Advanced Pure Air® air purifiers maintain a very healthy ozone production level of 0.04 ppm which is high enough to effectively fight disease and odor but still a full 20% below the EPA and OSHA recommended maximums. Also, as an additional safety feature, all Advanced Pure Air® air purifiers with ozone generation offer an on/off ozone setting. So the choice is yours to use it, don’t use it, or only when you need it, for example, to fight sudden strong odors or cigarette smoke.
All Advanced Pure Air® purifiers have silent or sleep modes that are extremely quiet. They run so quietly that customers have gone up to the purifier to make sure that it was still powered on! The noise level (dB) of each purifier can be found on the specifications page of the purifier’s manual.
Your HEPA/Carbon filter should last about 3 months assuming normal indoor environmental conditions and average usage of eight hours per day.
We strongly discourage trying to clean your system’s HEPA filter. Trying to vacuum, wash, or otherwise clean HEPA filters can damage it and reduce its effectiveness and could void your product warranty.
Under normal circumstances, your air purifier’s UV light will generally last more than 5,000 hours. Your air purifier’s UV light should last for more than a year and a half, assuming average usage of eight hours per day.
To maximize your unit's efficiency, we recommend washing the pre-filters at least once a month or more frequently as indoor environmental conditions warrant.
You need to reset the filter indicator by locating the trap door on the left side of the unit, inside there is a black button about 1inch down. Press and hold to reset, you will hear a beep. Note the Newport 7500 faceplate does not come off during this reset.
