Air conditioning technology that removes bacteria, odours and allergens

November 18, 2021

As we hunker down for winter, close our windows and turn up the heat, we’re usually focused on one thing – warmth.  But for so many people, poorly ventilated or airtight homes and workplaces can quickly lead to the build-up of bacteria, stale air, dust and odours, which in turn can cause or aggravate health problems.   

New Air Filtering Technology

Most of us think of cooling when we refer to air conditioning, but today’s air conditioning technology is designed to offer customers a range of benefits and options that remove bacteria, odours and allergens.

Modern air conditioning systems offer highly efficient cooling and heating for the home or workplace, but there are many air quality improvement options that will humidify and purify the air, delivering clean, fresh air that will benefit everyone throughout the winter months.

What air filtering options are available with air conditioning systems?

  • Standard built-in air filters remove airborne dust particles before the air is distributed
  • Self-cleaning filters have an internal brush that automatically cleans the internal filter to deliver a continuous supply of clean air.
  • Deodorising filters decompose odours such as tobacco, cooking or pet smells
  • Built in electrons are used to trigger chemical reactions with air borne particles that break down allergens such as pollen, fungal allergens and odours
  • Allergen removal and air purifying filters capture allergens such as pollen to ensure a steady supply of clean air.

Inactivating airborne Coronavirus

Most of the major manufacturers of air conditioning now offer anti-bacterial technology that inactivates 99.9% of airborne Novel Coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2), providing a safe haven for homeowners or employees.

Air Purifiers and Humidifiers

Air Purifiers and Humidifiers

Pure indoor air is especially important for vulnerable groups – such as the very young and old, as well as people living with respiratory diseases and allergies.

Poorly ventilated homes can be highly polluted, sometimes 10 times higher than outside. Air purifiers are designed to deal with harmful particles, as well as dust, odours, bacteria, pet hairs, moulds, pollen and mites and other allergens, leaving the indoor air clean and healthy.

Daikin’s Urura technology is small and quiet making it ideal for homes or small offices. Plus, it can also inactivate 99.9% of Novel Coronavirus.
