Addressing rising air pollution across major cities in the country, Havells India has announced a new range of air purifiers. Prices starting from Rs 14,490 and going up to Rs 43,290, the company has launched four models under Freshia range of air purifiers. These are equipped with five-stage to nine-stage filtration process to eliminate airborne pollutants up to 0.3 microns.
Havells says that damp environments are often a breeding ground for bacteria and cause infectious diseases. Allergens can trigger flu, irritation and asthma while volatile organic compounds in paints, solvents and sprays can lead to respiratory problems. With particulate matter invisible to the human eye but equally harmful, it is essential to create an environment that injects purity and freshness in every breath you take.
Ravindra Singh Negi, President - Electrical Consumer Durables, Havells India says, "Keeping pace with changing times and evolving needs, Havells has always strived to offer intelligent solutions that are highly functional, intuitive and performance-driven. The first of its kind nine-stage filtration process is a testament to Havells' commitment to providing superior comfort and well-being for discerning consumers. Precautionary measures taken in time to protect ourselves against rampant air-borne diseases will help prevent many pulmonary, infective and respiratory problems later."
