BlueAir Filtration Systems

BlueAir purification systems use a hybrid of air cleaning technologies. Primarily filter machines, they also utilize some active purification to boost the purifier's performance. These are a higher cost, higher performance alternative to many low end air purifiers. They combine HEPA and carbon filtration with ionization. These systems do not generally match the cost to benefit ratios of the top tier purifiers. However, they do offer quality filtration and are known for quality. The comparison charts below will allow you to compare these purifiers to competition in the industry so that you can make your own decision about whether they are a fit for your needs. See the other charts I have published to make comparisons across companies.
