Info: For Mid-Size Rooms up to 430 sq. ft.
The Classic 405 is a new addition to Blueair's popular line of powerful and effective yet quiet and energy-efficient indoor air filtration devices which use their HEPASilent Technology to remove virtually all airborne pollutants.* Shipping included in Canada.
This model is geared to mid-sized rooms up to 430 square feet (40 m2) such as a living or recreation room or a large bedroom in a typical house. It adds two refinements to earlier editions of Blueair's mid-sized models: it is Wi-Fi enabled, so you can use your own smart phone (with Blueair's free software app) as a remote control for it (including from afar); and the touch buttons on the control panel (shown above right) have easy-to-read LED icons showing the status of that Wi-Fi connection, plus the unit's operating speed and if the filter needs changing.
*(Depending on the environment and choice of either the standard 400 series HEPA particle filter (which removes: Dust, PM2.5, Pollen, Particles, Pet dander, and Mold) which comes with the unit, or the optional 400 series SmokeStop filter, which also removes Smoke, VOC, Dust mites, Bacteria, Chemicals, and Cooking odors.)
The Blueair Classic 405 uses the best of electrostatic and mechanical filtration, to draw polluted air through an encapsulated particle-charging chamber to increase the likelihood of all the particles being trapped as the air passes through the advanced filter media composed of three layers of progressively smaller fibres, to be delivered pure and clean out the other side.

Adjusting operation is easy: just touch the middle circle on the display panel on the top of the unit (once for the low fan speed, and more times for faster or off). For remote control functionality, download the free Blueair Friend app, which enables you to control it not only within the house, but from afar, which you may want to do if you forgot to turn it on, for example, or if you have heard about a forest or grass fire in your area, or if you live in an urban area where you can access outdoor air quality data in real time.
