Blue Air 403 Air Purifier
The blue air cleaner has made quite a name for itself in the air purification marketplace. You know that it is a good air purifier and has good performance, but you may be surprised why many people love and buy this air blue air purifier over and over again. Just enough, it is quiet while still moving a lot of air.
Seeing the fact that this is a mid-level version of the blurred line of air purifiers it is stated that it will not quite be as high as the 500/600 series, but it makes up for that in sound quality. I could sit here and boast about how quiet it is, but other factors are important too. I will focus on the other parts of the blue air 403 air purifier further along in this review. If you have any burning questions that I haven’t answered here, please email me.
In this section, I will discuss the in-depth features of this blue air cleaner. It is smaller in size than the big models but packs quite a punch when it comes to air purification. You will get your money’s worth in no time, and you also may even forget that it is even there because it is so quiet and easy to manage!

I believe the construction of the blue air 403 air purifier brings out the great features that it has and even enhances them somewhat. The pure steel construction makes it quite stronger than any air purifier out there on the market. It is heavy, but that is part of steel (strength comes with weight).
Compared to the blue air 601 air purifier this airflow design is somewhat different. Instead of sucking in air from the bottom and blow it out-diffused from all sides like an IQAir air cleaner it takes it in like a desktop computer from the front and out the back. I guess this is one reason many people say it is as quiet as a desktop computer.
One of the hidden, but important parts of the blue air 403 air purifier is the electrostatic technology it uses. You may have been scared of ionic air purifiers, but many manufacturers have moved only to live inside of the air purifier where they should stay. When you do this, you don’t produce any ozone for people to breathe in your home. Believe me; you don’t want to be breathing concentrated amounts of ozone for too long because it will just make your symptoms worse!
When the blue air cleaner sucks in the air, it charges it so the polluted air particles will cling together and then get trapped in the oppositely charged air filter that is within the air purifier. That way static is used to trap the dirty air particles and no ozone leaks outside of the air purifier. It is a good upgrade from the old air cleaners that used to spill out ozone all over your home just to give people a smell of fresh air that was……. a little more than just fresh!
BlueAir HEPA Air Filters
When you think about a HEPA air filter, you think that of a super thick and super dense microfibers that capture a ton of microscopic particles that are way smaller than a micron. BlueAir HEPA air filters come in two different types to get rid of an individual problem. You first have your regular HEPA-like the air filter that is super white and is usually pretty thick that can stop all the things that bother people with allergies and certain bacteria and viruses. They are also easy to know when they are dirty and need to be replaced. You can see this from the picture below.
Seeing that this is supposed to remove 365 square feet of space 5x an hour; it will have to be in multiple rooms to do yourself justice unless you plan to spend all your time in one area other than your bedroom when you sleep. The blue air 402 Air Purifier has a CADR rating of 250 for dust and 255 for pollen, which is excellent. I am even more surprised at its rating of 240 for smoke, which is thanks to one thing as you can guess. Yes, that would be activated carbon!
Cleaning up to 99.97% of everything down to 0.1 microns is not enough for some people. I would prefer the TrueHEPA air filter that cleans 99.97% of everything down to 0.03 microns myself if the option were available, but this amount does good enough with its other technologies. The ten-year warranty will back up that statement as well. Now that smells and odors are on the menu activated carbon filters are needed. I don’t mean those small sleeves that weight as much as a sheet of paper. I am talking about 3lbs of mass here! Clearly, this gives you all the air purification you would need, and the blue air 403 air purifier provides it.
