All parents want the best for their little ones, and that applies to the air they breathe as well.
Here are some of the newer models on the market that may come in handy when it starts to get hazy, if your child has allergies, or simply if you would like cleaner air at home.
Easy to clean and use, the EP-L110E is an Auto Self Clean unit, which means that all you need to do is empty the dust box once the indicator notifies that it’s time to empty it. The stainless steel outfit consists of various elements including a deodorising filter that can be washed with water as well as an Allergen-Free HEPA Filter that effectively captures fine particles including dust, pollen and airborne mould while suppressing PM2.5.
Special emphasis has also been placed on reducing noise during operation and your electricity cost with the Eco mode. Its scratch-resistant front glass touch panel is user-friendly and easy to clean too!
