About Blueair Classic 405 The Classic 405 is a Wi-Fi enabled air cleaner for home or office use.

It is energy-efficient, whisper silent, and made of materials that can be recycled. Why use an air purifier? In addition to pollen and combustion fumes entering buildings, chemicals in paint, furniture and clothing, cleaning detergents, as well as mold and dust make indoor air up to five times more polluted than outdoor air in both city and rural dwellings according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to the same source, people also spend 90% of their time indoors. About the test Testfakta Research conducted comparative laboratory tests of air purifiers with the purpose of comparing the performance of air purifiers sold on the British and Nordic markets. The laboratory tests were performed by Intertek Testing & Certification and IBR Laboratories in the UK. The sample was selected by Testfakta Research on the basis of models suitable for a medium-sized room. The capacity was tested according to test standard ANSI/AHAM AC1-2015, measuring the capacity to eliminate various types of particles (dust and pollen). The 12 different models were tested on capacity at 37dB and at maximum speed. They were also tested for ease of use and ozone emissions.
