Info: Coming Soon - Available in Two Sizes
New to Canada! Although the Blueair DustMagnet air purifiers have permanent prefilters to attract and capture the larger dust particles which only need to be wiped with a dust cloth or vacuumed with a soft brush attachment about once a week, their main filters for everything else will need to be replaced every six months to a year.
Although they come in at least four individual models, depending on their 'trim', there are only two series of Blueair DustMagnets, which each use a different size filter: the smaller 5200 series (which includes the all-white model 5210i and the part-gray model 5240i), which is designed for areas up to 212 sq. ft.; and the larger 5400 series (which includes the all-white model 5410i and the part-gray model 5440i), for areas as large as 356 sq. ft.
Apart from their size (and weight) differences, both types are a combination particle and carbon filter capable of removing some degree of light household odors, chemicals, and gases, as well as 99.97% of airborne particles like pollen and dust and 99% of germs like bacteria and viruses, when used in the appropriate Blueair machine equipped with HEPASilent™ filtration technology.
Changing Filters: You'll know when it's time, both from a filter change indicator light like this on the top panel, and an alert from the Blueair app, if you are using that.
