If you’re looking for an air-filtration, purification or conditioning system for your home, you may have come across a number of different types of filters which are included in your units.
We understand that when you’re choosing an air-purification system, you’re making a decision that will benefit the health and comfort of your family. And with many options available for improving the quality of air in your home, you need as much information as you can get to make the best decision.
What is catechin?
Catechin is a natural anti-bacterial substance derived from green tea leaves. It’s one of the purifying elements Daikin uses within our air-conditioning and air-purification units to naturally extinguish germs and neutralise odours in your home.
Catechin has been used in traditional medicine since ancient times, with proven anti-viral and anti-bacterial qualities. Many people prefer catechin filters to the alternatives as it’s a natural solution which can trap viruses and airborne pollutants, limiting the effects of allergens and even trapping odours.
At Daikin, many of our air-purification models have filters which are infused with catechin’s anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, designed to trap and deactivate microscopic bacteria and viruses and help to diminish or even prevent the spread of diseases.
Why choose air conditioning with a catechin filter?
For people with low or compromised immunity, asthma, heart or lung disease or other chronic breathing conditions such as cystic fibrosis, bronchitis or rhinitis, an air-purification system with a catechin filter can significantly increase their comfort. By reducing the amount of airborne particulates and providing air that’s up to three times cleaner, healthier and fresher, there’s a significantly reduced risk of inflammation. The same thing applies to those with allergies and sensitivities to pollen, dust and pet hair.
And it’s not just those with ongoing health issues who can reap the benefits. Increasingly, people who live in cities, or areas with higher air pollution are buying air purifiers to improve the quality of their air at home. And homes with young children and elderly occupants are also choosing to install systems which will improve air quality and ventilation.
