The Pre-Filter helps to protect the HEPA-type filter by removing larger particles.
An Activated Carbon filter neutralises VOCs, harmful gases and odours from substances such as perfumes, hair spray, paints and pesticides reducing allergic reactions to the air you breathe.
The cleanable HEPA-type filter removes particles down to 2 microns such as dust, pollen, mould spores, dead skin and pet dander. It can be vacuumed when necessary.
The germicidal UV light is used for sterilising microorganisms such as germs,viruses, fungi and bacteria.
Finally the ioniser releases negative ions into outgoing filtered air to help the air purification process.
To take the concern out of maintenance, the HF290 air purifier includes a filter change indicator to help you maintain optimal performance. The Healthy House® offers the range of Heaven Fresh Replacement Filters to help you maintain your HF290.
Take a look at our Filter Replacement Service tab for peace of mind.
The HF290 air purifier will easily filter the air in your room size up to 20m2 3 times an hour on the high setting. The Healthy House® recommends their air purifiers based on a minimum of 3 air changes per hour.

The UV-C germicidal lamp can kill harmful airborne bacteria and virus. This function will work in any mode. Press the UV Button () to start the UV lamp and stop the UV lamp by pressing the UV Button again.
If the UV lamp needs to be replaced, the UV icon on the LCD will illuminate and flicker. After replacing the UV lamp, reset the UV lamp by pressing the UV Button for a few seconds, the UV icon will stop flickering and the new UV lamp will start to work. Check from the UV view window, if the UV lamp still lights, it should not be replaced.
If the HEPA filter needs to be cleaned, HEPA Reset icon on LCD will illuminate and flicker. After cleaning the HEPA filter, RESET the HEPA filter by using a pin or needle to press the HEPA RESET Button (), then the icon will stop flickering. For instructions on how to clean the HEPA filter see the CLEANING HEPA FILTER on page 7,8 of the instruction manua
A fine grid that removes the larger particles from the air and with regular cleaning can help extend the life of the HEPA filter maintaining filtration levels.
It removes larger particles.
With careful maintenance such as regular cleaning the pre-filter should not need replacing.
Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, carbo activatus or an "AC filter", is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 500 m2.
Because of its super porous texture active carbon is able to attract, adsorb and neutralise smaller particles like organic gases, odours and some chemical compounds. These particles are too small to be trapped by other types of air purifier filters.
Activated carbon is a form of carbon that has been treated to make it extremely porous giving it a very large surface area available for the adsorption of chemical compounds. Activated carbon primarily adsorbs organic chemicals along with some larger molecular weight inorganic compounds. One gram of activated carbon has a surface area about one tenth the size of a football field.
If you would like to remove smells, gases or some chemicals from the air in your home an activated carbon filter is a very effective part of an efficient air purifier.
HEPA is an acronym for "High Efficiency Particulate Air" or "High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance." This acronym refers to a filter that is manufactured, tested, certified, and labeled in accordance with current true HEPA filter standards. The minimum true HEPA standard requires the filter to capture 99.97% of the 0.3 micron particles in the air passing through the filter.
HEPA-type filters typically remove 99% of particles between 0.3 and 3 microns which will be sufficient to deal with most particle filtration requirements in your home.
HEPA-type filters remove pollens, dust mite debris, mould spores, pet dander, smoke, odours and some chemicals.
UV light treatment is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UV light is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, and water purification.
UV light has ant-bacterial, antiviral, sterilising and deodorising properties against microorganisms.
UV bulbs will deteriorate over time and The Healthy House® recommends that they are replaced when they are not functioning,damaged, when no blue light is observed or at least every 12 months. Take a look at our Filter (bulb) Replacement Service tab for peace of mind.
Ionisation is the process by which an atom or a molecule acquires a negative or positive charge by gaining or losing electrons to form ions. An air ioniser is a device that uses voltage to ionise air molecules. Airborne particles are positively charged and are attracted to the negative ions in a similar way that static from your television attracts dust. The negative ions attach to these particles and form larger particles that can be trapped more easily by an air purifier filter or are attracted to surfaces within the room itself.
The ionisation process also has a disinfecting property on viruses and bacteria. This has a beneficial effect on bacteria and viruses trapped within the filter medium that may otherwise reproduce in that environment.
Ionisers are effective by themselves or, when combined with filters, can dramatically improve effectiveness of those filters.
Ionisers will have a positive effect on particles such as dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and pet dander.
Whether you purchase air purifiers, dehumidifiers or water filters, or any of their replacement parts we offer you peace of mind. We will add your name to our reminder service. In accordance with the manufacturers' guidelines we will send you a gentle reminder that your unit may need replacement parts. Maintaining its efficiency will continue providing you a healthier environment.
We will be able to supply you with your required replacements. We maintain stock levels of filters and cartridges even after a manufacturer may bring the original unit to an end. This means our customers can rest assured of our commitment to servicing their requirements long into the future.
