In fact, an air purifier in Malaysia has been deemed a necessity.

The promise of an air purifier with a HEPA filter is an enticing one. An air purifier is designed to purify the air in our home, which helps to get rid of all the impurities and harmful particles, including smoke, dust mites and pet furs. Did you know that indoor air can have five times higher levels of certain pollutants as compared to outdoor air?

Worry not – SK magic got you covered. As explained by experts, the air filter can indeed neutralise some of the threats posed by indoor air pollutions. SK Magic’s advanced air purifiers are able to filter and purify air at your home, providing only the cleanest and purest air to you and your loved ones, protecting your health at the same time.

Here is everything you need to know about an air purifier in Malaysia.

What is HEPA Filter Malaysia?

The big question – what HEPA filter is all about? What does it mean for a filter to be called HEPA, and why does it matter?

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air – a type of pleated mechanical air filter. It is claimed that it can trap up to 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 microns. Air purifiers with HEPA filters can eliminate dust, pollen, mould, bacteria and any airborne allergens and contaminants particles within that size.

Most modern HEPA filters in Malaysia are made of a very dense fibre-like material. Meanwhile, SK magic’s latest air purifiers are equipped with the HEPA filter that consists of 4 layers of filters. These filters trap both larger and microscopic particles, thus tremendously improve the quality of indoor air.

How Does Air Purifier Work?

Air purifier with HEPA filter works off of a simple principle – it uses a fan or more to circulate the air in a room and move it through filters. With powerful air suction, these filters then trap the contaminants, odours, chemical vapours, household irritants, and larger and microscopic pollutants.

The mechanical filtration of HEPA consists of multi-layered netting made of very fine fibreglass threads with varying sized gaps. The fan inside draws air into the filter, and particles are trapped in the filter. This results in only fresh and clean air being released from the air purifier.

Let’s go through the air-purifying process in the air purifier together!

Air purifiers by SK Magic are designed with multi-layered filters, which are:

Pre-Filter

A pre-filter is an air filter that removes large particles like dust, dirt and hair. It is the first step in the air filtration process on SK Magic’s air purifiers. A pre-filter protects the main air filters from getting clogged up with debris so they can trap microscopic pollutants.

Dust Filter

A dust filter further improves air purifying performance by filtering small to medium size dust. It also increases the removal capacity of fine dust while also eliminating coarse dust.

Deodorisation Filter

A deodorisation filter is crucial in removing odour and unpleasant smells. On top of that, it also eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOC) and harmful gases such as formaldehyde, which can cause sick building syndrome.

HEPA Filter

The final and utmost filter in SK Magic’s air purifiers is the HEPA filter. It removes minute dust particles, pollen, pet dander and mould spores below 0.3 microns in size. In addition, it is also powerful to eliminate cigarette smoke.

Do You Need An Air Purifier in Malaysia?

Here comes the million-dollar question – do you need an air purifier in Malaysia?

Air pollution has been an ongoing issue in Malaysia that causes haze with choking-smoke air. In recent years, haze has become an annual phenomenon during the dry season. One of the common causes for this problem is open burning of forests, which results in hazardous air quality and leads to widespread illnesses and health issues. The situation is certainly worrying, particularly among the elderly, children and those with breathing difficulties.

On the flipped side, air purifiers help to efficiently clean the indoor air and increase the indoor air quality in your home. If you have an allergy or asthma, an air purifier with a HEPA filter is undoubtedly an excellent investment to remove harmful fine airborne particles indoors. It helps alleviate allergies and respiratory symptoms and ultimately improve your health by providing the cleanest air to you.

If you have furry friends at home, pet dander and pet hair can be a headache. It can trigger nasty pet-related allergic reactions if not taken care of. In this case, an air purifier is what you need. The HEPA filter can help capture strands of pet fur, skin flakes and any particles of pet allergens, therefore reducing the risk of allergic reactions.
