IKEA has announced a new air purifier:FÖRNUFTIG. IKEA air purifier is an affordable air purifier that can purify the air for approximately 10 square meters. By cleverly using less material, IKEA has been able to keep the price low.
IKEA FÖRNUFTIG: air purifier with different filters
The IKEA air purifier is equipped with a pre-filter that removes large particles in the air. You can think of hair and dust. There is also a filter under the hood for smaller particles; think of pollen and dust.
Bad smells – such as smoke or cooking smells – can also be dealt with well with the IKEA FÖRNUFTIG: there is also a filter for gas cleaning. Whether it is one smart air purifier? Not so much: there is no support to discover for a voice assistant or a link with your smartphone.
Of course you could make him smart with one smart plug. Last week we reported on Smarthomeweb.nl also that IKEA Home Smart scenes be rolled out; with such a smart plug you could therefore soon include the air purifier in scenarios.
Affordable, easy-to-use air purifier
By cleverly designing the air cleaner, there is little material. With this IKEA has managed to keep the costs of the air purifier low, which is quite a problem with other air purifiers. You can easily lose hundreds of euros for the average air purifier.
“At IKEA, we believe that clean indoor air should not be a luxury for the few, which is why one of our main priorities when developing the FÖRNUFTIG air purifier was to get a low price for both the air purifier and the filtersHenrik Telander, Product Owner at IKEA, reports.
IKEA reports that not only the price of the air purifier itself is low, but that the energy consumption is also low, ‘in order to keep the operating costs for the customer low’.
IKEA conducted indoor air pollution research
Various studies have shown that the indoor air quality is bad. IKEA also carried out a survey itself in 2018: the Clean Air Survey. This showed that people all over the world underestimated air pollution in the home.
For some time now, the Swedish furniture group has focused its efforts on improving this air quality: IKEA magazines, for example, give tips on how to quickly improve air quality. The new IKEA Air Purifier is a great addition to this.
