How Does Skye Stack Up?
Advanced 5 Stage Portable Air Purifier
1) Powerful UV-C germicidal lamps - Reduces bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungi. According to the FDA, "UVC radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces."
2) Patented PRO-Cell Technology - Reduces chemical odors in the air such as odor from new paint or new carpet.
3) Activated Carbon - Removes gases and odors from the air leaving your home with the freshest smell.
4) H13 HEPA filters - Capture 99.97% of 0.3-micron particles like dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and viruses.
5) Pre-Filter - Captures larger particles like hair and dust balls
The Skye covers an impressive 420 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) covering 1600 sq feet, which is about the size of 2.5 normal size rooms in your house
Very low noise from 22 Decibels, which is inaudible, on level 1 to 59 Decibels about the level of your refrigerator

Do air purifiers help with dust?
The answer is generally yes, however dust is made up of different size particles, so the quality of the filter is important for capturing all the dust particles. There are different types of filters that can go into air purifiers depending on the level of air purifier purchased. The best air purifiers will have an H13 HEPA filter and remove somewhere in the area of 99.97% of dust particles down to .3 microns. However, there are low quality air purifiers which feature low quality air filters (whether regular or HEPA-like) and therefore don’t capture as much of the dust.
What is CFM and how does it relate to an air purifier?
CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute and is the units used to measure the volume of air an air purifier filters per minute. The higher the CFM, the more air the air purifier filters.
Are air purifiers quiet?
Whether an air purifier is quiet is determined by how it was built and the quality of the unit. Each air purifier uses a fan to draw in dirty air through a filtration system and sends the clean air out. For the air purifier to be quiet, it must be engineered well with a quality fan. A quiet air purifier should have almost no sound on low speeds. No to low sound is around 22 - 30 decibels. If the air purifier has the ability to increase the fan speed for more rapid air cleaning, it is important that the air purifier doesn't also have sound coming from a cheap fan or other poorly designed parts.
Do air purifiers help with smell?
Air purifiers with Carbon filters and air purifiers with PCO technology (Photocatalytic Oxidation) will remove odors in your home. Odors are gases and are too small to be trapped by air purifiers with only particle filters, like a HEPA filter, which is why you want to look for air purifiers with multiple purification layers.
Do air purifiers help with allergies?
Particles in the air like pollen, dander, dust, smoke, and others can cause allergies. Air purifiers that have high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can capture upwards of 99% of these allergen particles from the air that they treat. While they cannot filter all the air in your house to eliminate these allergy triggers, they will help filter your air, which should reduce or mitigate your symptoms.
Do air purifiers help reduce viruses, mold and mildew?
Some air purifiers will be able to capture virus, mold, and mildew depending on their filter, however, some viruses are so small, less than 0.01 microns, even high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are not able to capture them. That is why you should look for air purifiers with multiple purification layers, such as an air purifier with medical grade HEPA filtration and UVC purification.
Do home air purifiers really work?
Air purifiers are only as good as the quality of their filters and other purification technologies. Air purifiers with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are able to capture 99% or more of 0.3 micron particles, smaller than the eye can see such as bacteria, dust, smoke, mold, viruses, and more. Air purifiers with UV can provide further purification from viruses, and air purifiers with carbon filters and PCO technology (Photocatalytic Oxidation) will remove odors from the air. These contaminants cause respiratory issues, illness, and allergies.
Is a UV air purifier effective?
UV light is effective at reducing certain airborne contaminants such as mold spores which is why it is used by some of the more advanced air purifiers. UV-C light can disrupt the DNA of cells, stopping them from reproducing, and thus effectively disabling cells such as germs, mold, mildew, and even bacteria and viruses. While high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can often capture air contaminants like bacteria, other contaminants such as viruses are so small that they can slip through HEPA filters, which is why it is best to have air purifiers that have HEPA filtration and UVC purification technology.
Do air purifiers make your house smell better?
Smells in the house can come from many different sources such as smoke, mold, mildew, dirt, cooking or other VOCs. An air purifier with a high grade (HEPA) filter can capture the particles that make up the odors. However, the HEPA filter may only capture the odor but does not necessarily eliminate the particle causing the odor. Changing the filter often can remove the odors from the home. Plus, some contaminants such as microscopic germs are so small that they can slip through HEPA filters. To remove the largest amount of the odors, make sure the air purifier to only includes a high quality HEPA filter, but also includes UVC and PCO technology to reduce or remove the odor particles.
Does the UV air purifier create Ozone?
While UVC light is an effective purification technology, some UV lights and UV air purifiers can produce Ozone, a harmful gas if inhaled. That is why you should look for UV air purifiers that are tested to be non-ozone producing and have the California Air Resource Board (CARB) certification logo, which means the product has been tested and approved to be non-ozone producing.
Can an Air Purifier help with Covid?
Air purifiers can help with Covid and other airborne viruses. In an independent test conducted by Innovative Bioanalysis, the Skye portable air purifier demonstrated a 99.99% net reduction of recoverable active SARS-CoV-2 virus in the air of after 30 minutes of operation
