    Dust, pollen, smoke removal (low)

    Dust, pollen, smoke removal (low)

    Dust, pollen, smoke removal is how well a model cleared air of fine clay dust and cigarette smoke when operating at a low speed that was typically one setting above the lowest speed. Many models have multiple speeds and the lowest is not as effective at cleaning the air. A model that scores well for dust removal should perform comparably for pollen.

    Dust, pollen, smoke removal (high)

    Dust, pollen, smoke removal (high)

    Dust, pollen, smoke removal is how well a model cleared air of fine clay dust and cigarette smoke when operating at its highest speed. A model that scores well for dust removal should perform comparably for pollen.

    Noise (low speed)

    Noise (low speed)

    Noise is based in instrument measurements with the model running at a low speed. The lowest speed may provide even quieter operation but will not be as effective at cleaning the air.

     /  5
    Noise (high speed)

    Noise (high speed)

    Noise is based on instrument measurements with the model running at its highest speed.
