CORSA UV-C AIR SANITIZER FAQ

 

What is UV light?

 

UV light is short for ultraviolet light, which is part of the electromagnetic spectrum (along with other sources of light, radio waves, and X-rays). UV light is usually not visible to the human eye, and the most common source we experience is from the sun.

 

Is UV-C light dangerous?

 

No. In fact, there are three types of UV light, based on the wavelength. UV-C radiation can disrupt the DNA of microorganisms like viruses and bacteria. You may have heard of hospitals using UV light to kill pathogens and sanitize medical devices and other items.

How does UV light work in an air purifier?

 

There are many air purifiers available today. Some are standalone products that you plug into an outlet. There are also whole-house air purifiers that work with your HVAC system to clean all the air that is circulating through your home. In either case, the system pulls in untreated air, which is exposed to UV-C light to eliminate the majority of bacteria, viruses, and other germs.

 

What is the difference between UV Air Purifier and normal air purifier?

 

Both products are effective at removing harmful elements from the air, but UV Air Purifiers focus on deactivating airborne germs, bacteria and mold while filtration focuses on removing harmful particulates that become airborne.  

 

Why are ozone based air purifiers bad?

Air purifiers that use ozone are bad for health.These products generate significant amounts of ozone that, if inhaled, can cause long-term damage to olfactory cells and lungs.

 

Do all air purifiers use UV light?

 

No. UV light is one type of technology that is used in air purifiers. The two main

types of products are:

 

  • HEPA filtration – which uses a physical filter to catch impurities

  • Ionizer – which uses electronically charge ions to bond to and trap airborne

       contaminants

 

UV-C light can be more effective at killing microorganisms than either of these

methods alone, which is why it’s a good feature to look for when purchasing an

air-purifying system.

Do Air Purifiers Remove Odors?

An activated carbon filter is very effective at removing odors. They can eliminate

smells from smoke, pets, food, garbage, and even baby diapers. Other types of

filters, such as HEPA filters, are not as effective in removing odors as they are in

eliminating pollution particles.

 

Will an Air Purifier Cure My Asthma or Allergies?

No. Air purifiers prevent asthma symptoms and allergies by filtering out airborne

allergens like pollen, dust, and animal dander. However, they do not cure asthma

and allergies. Purifiers are more of a preventive measure; not a cure. 

 

Where should I place my air purifier?

Most air purifiers are designed to clean single rooms, so naturally, it's best to place an air purifier in the room you spend the majority of your time in. For most people, this place is the bedroom. However, you may also spend a bulk of your hours in a home office or a living area with your family.

 

What Is the Best Air Purifier for Someone With Asthma?

The best air purifier for someone with asthma is one with both a HEPA filter and an activated carbon filter. An air purifier with both filter types will remove particles and gaseous pollutants that can cause asthma.

 

Why are ioniser based air purifiers not advisable?

 

Generally speaking, there are no side effects. However, there are a few purifiers on the market that use electrostatic precipitators and ionizers; these *may* emit small levels of ozone. Before buying an air purifier, make sure to check the product specifications.

 

How Much Does It Cost To Operate an Air Purifier?

 

It depends on a few things. For example, although electricity is a secondary cost associated with running an air purifier, the energy efficiencies of the device will impact how much it costs to operate. You’ll also need to buy new filters from time to time. Corsa filter assembly needs to be replaced after 3000 hours of working.

 

How Do I Know if my Air Purifier filter needs to be changed ?

 

Corsa1 device has a filter change alarm, which will alert the user to change the filter.

 

What happens if the air filters are not changed when the indicator comes on?

 

With dirty or old air filters, your air won't be filtered thoroughly, resulting in poor air quality and increased risk for allergy, asthma, and other respiratory illness symptoms. To ensure that your air purifier is performing its best, clean air filters are crucial. Change them when indicated.

Will an Air Purifier Protect My Entire House?

 

The packaging will tell you the maximum area (per square foot) that the air purifier can protect. Comparing this square footage to that of your home should help you better understand what’s needed.  

 

Can I Open My Windows in a Room Where an Air Purifier Is Running?

 

In short, yes. Opening or closing a window doesn’t matter—an air purifier is going to purify the air regardless. That said, keeping the doors and windows closed will help your air purifier to maximise its effectiveness since external pollutants aren’t able to come in.

 

Where Should I Put My Air Purifier?

 

Place your air purifier in a room where you spend a lot of time, like your bedroom. Make sure that there is no obstruction in the airflow of the air purifier. There shouldn’t be anything placed in front that would obstruct the indoor air to pass through it. 

 

How Often Should I Run My Air Purifier?

 

For larger spaces, you’ll need to run the purifier for more extended periods. Smaller rooms generally take less time to clean. We recommend that you run the purifier at regular intervals so that lingering pollutants don’t accumulate.

 

 Do Air Purifiers Make Noise?

 

For any air purifier to be effective, it has to move the air. As such, there is no way to do this silently . However, with most air purifiers, there’s a noise level setting that can be adjusted based on preference.

 

How long should I run my air purifier?

 

For best results, it is recommended to continuously run your air purifier. To help with noise and electricity costs, most air purifiers come with multiple cleaning speeds. For example, to maintain your indoor air quality while you are away from home, your air purifier can be on a lower setting than when you are home.
