Clean Air on Campus
For college students across the nation, fall semester is just around the corner. While students are anxious to perfectly decorate their dorms and meet their new roommates, what might be escaping their thoughts is the quality of air in the tight new quarters they’re about to call home. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that poor indoor air quality can affect concentration, attendance, and student performance. With that said, it might be time to clean things up with a Winix A230/A231 Air Purifier. Here are a few of the features that make it a must-have for dormitories this fall.
All-in-One True HEPA 4-Stage Cleaning
Dorm rooms aren’t the most sanitary – they are often referred to as “petri dishes” after all. From larger particles such as hair and dander to allergens, it takes a series of filters to truly clean the air around students:
- Fine Mesh Pre-Filter is the first line of defense against the largest airborne particles found indoors
- Activated Carbon Filter to reduce odors and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
- True HEPA Filter to remove 99.97%* of airborne allergens down to 0.3 microns in size
- PlasmaWave® Technology* may help to reduce the presence of airborne impurities
Designed to Handle a Dorm Room
Unpleasant odors, allergens, and contaminants can permeate every last inch of a dorm room. AHAM verified products take room size into careful consideration. The A230/A231 Air Purifier is AHAM Verifide® to purify rooms up to 230 square feet – exceeding the average dorm room size by 100 square feet and making it perfectly sized to keep your quarters clean.
If you’ve ever lived in a dorm, you know that floor space is a premium and precious commodity. With its slim, compact design and the option of floor or tabletop placement, the A230/A231 Air Purifier occupies less than 10 inches of space, leaving plenty of additional room for one’s belongings.
The A230/A231 reduces allergens and contaminants lingering in the air that can hinder your college student’s air quality, immune system, and academic performance. As you help your soon to be college student with their back-to-school items this year, don’t forget the item that will “watch over them” while they’re away: an air purifier.
