Many people do not realize that the air quality in their homes is actually low. This is due to indoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution is caused when houses are built to keep outdoor air from flowing inside, which causes air pollutants to accumulate. Examples of air pollution include dust mites/particles, mold spores, pet dander, chemicals, and tobacco smoke. The pollutants can lead to harmful health risks such as respiratory disease, allergies, asthma, heart disease, and even cancer.
A good way to reduce these risks is with a Hamilton Beach HEPA filter. HEPA filters are 99.97% efficient at trapping pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, mold, dust, and smoke from the air moving through the filter. A carbon pre-filter absorbs odors, and a UV bulb filters out viruses and bacteria. This makes HEPA filters ideal for those who suffer from asthma or respiratory problems and for those who smoke.
This product is a carbon pre-filter that fits Hamilton Beach room air purifier models 04152, 04160, 04161, 04162, and 04163. The carbon pre-filter is essential to the air purifier filter because it is designed to remove odors. Regular HEPA filters alone do not filter out odors. Therefore, the pre-filter is essential to a clean, odor-free environment. This pre-filter removes odors such as tobacco smoke, kitchen odors, bathroom odors, and pet odors. This pre-filter comes as a cut-to-fit sheet, which can make 1 to 6 pre-filters, depending on the model, which saves money! For optimum performance, pre-filters should be replaced every 2 to 3 months. Hamilton Beach offers clean, affordable air filtration!
