A filter monitoring system tells you when you need to replace the air filters. The AirClean DE20 (home air purifier) and the AirClean DV20 (Virus Risk Reduction) are the 2 systems that have the filter monitoring system. Otherwise follow the recommendations of when to replace the filters HERE
The HEPA filter is designed to last 3 to 5 years under normal use. Pre filter replacements last for up to 6 months of continuous use. This will vary depending on dust, pollutants and chemical concentrations present in the air.
The DE20 and DV20 models are essentially the same systems, with the only difference being that the DV20 excludes the activated carbon filter. The carbon filter is typically used in residential applications for odour and smoke capture and is generally not required for virus risk reduction. For virus risk reduction we would suggest the DV20 model as removing the carbon filter increases the airflow making the system more efficient. If the system is being purchased for mould issues or smoke/road pollution problems then the DE20 would be a better choice.
Mould is fast spreading in damp and wet conditions. When inhaled, these airborne spores can exacerbate asthma, cause a flare of allergic rhinitis symptoms such as sneezing, a runny or blocked nose or wheezing, create a chronic cough, and can cause headaches and tiredness and itchy rashes.
One of the best things you can do is to invest in a quality air purifier to remove the spores from the air you breathe before it has a chance to get established. It is recommended to purchase an air purifier with a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter like the InovaAir E8, E20 or DE20. All InovaAir Air Purifiers contain H13 HEPA certified medical grade filters that are certified to filter 99.95% @ 0.3 microns and tested down to 0.003 microns at 100% efficiency to remove mould, dust, pollen, bacteria, viruses, smoke and any airborne particles down to 0.3 microns.
InovaAir’s operating noise levels produce the sound of a soft breeze with near silent levels which creates a gentle airflow while in use.
InovaAir Air Purifiers use medical grade HEPA nd high capacity activated carbon filtration with efficiency up to 99.97% at 0.003 microns. This not only means a more effective air purifier, but longer filter life and lower ongoing operating costs. The lifespan of the main filters in our residential systems is up to 5 years, while some of our competitors who do not use pre filters only last 6 months for the main filters, so it's not long before the filter replacements exceed the cost of the initial purchase.
Medical-grade HEPA filters offer the highest level of efficiency.
A HEPA filter will filter with a minimum efficiency 99.97% of particles at 0.3 microns and 95% of particles at 0.1 microns. With 1 micron measuring just 1/10,000 of a centimetre and the smallest particle visible to the naked eye being 40 microns. 0.3 microns is many times smaller than dust mites, mould spores, pet allergens and pollens.
It is important to select a medical grade HEPA filter as airborne viruses and ultrafine particles will pass through many lower efficiency filters. The higher the filter efficiency, the higher the removal rate.
Medical-grade HEPA filers are made from a very fine paper (not polypropylene or synthetic materials) which traps microscopic particles so fine they will even remove bacteria and viruses. This is why HEPA filters are used in hospital and medical applications, including operating theatres.

InovaAir Air Purifiers have a 5 year warranty. If the product is found to be defective, InovaAir will repair or replace your product.
- Dust mites
- Sub micron particles
- Mould spores
The InovaAir air purifiers are portable and can be easily moved from room to room on wheels.
The ultra-quiet operation on low fan speeds can be left in any room. Other air purifiers are designed with the constraints of the fan location - however the InovaAir purifier creates a straight air path from purifier to the other side of the room, even at lower speeds. The result is lower particle counts in the room and superior clean air circulation throughout the entire area.
