The AC-2102 features a Four-Stage filter assembly: Activated Carbon filter, HEPA filter, VOC filter and TiO2 filter with UV Light. Targeted to effectively remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors and harmful particles, for rooms up to 465 sq.ft. Designed to operate continuously for up to 2,000 hours.
VOCs (Volatile organic compounds) are gases emitted from certain solid or liquid products. VOCs include a wide variety of chemicals and some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) "concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors." VOC gases are emitted by thousands of common household items such as: paints and lacquers, paint strippers, varnishes and wax, disinfecting and cleaning supplies, pesticides, building materials and furnishings, office equipment such as copiers and printers, correction fluids and carbonless copy paper, graphics and craft materials including glues and adhesives and many hobby products, permanent markers, photographic solutions, cosmetics, and fuel and oil. Even when stored away properly, these VOC items can emit small degrees of VOC gas.
The EPA's (TEAM) "Total Exposure Assessment Methodology" found that regardless of whether homes are located in rural or highly industrial areas, levels of VOC gases are commonly higher inside homes than outside. TEAM studies also indicated that while people were using products containing VOCs they can expose themselves and others to high pollutant levels, and that even after the activity was completed, elevated concentrations can still remain in the air long after.
