socket located at the bottom of the unit and plug the other end into a
grounded wall outlet or power strip. Turn on your Blueair unit. The blue
light-emitting diode indicates that the unit is working. Set the ­control knob to
maximum speed, which is recommended for fast initial cleaning, daytime use,
or very polluted air. After a few minutes, adjust the control to the desired
speed. Minimum speed is generally recommended for nighttime use.

Care and maintenance
Blueair air purifiers feature high quality design, materials and workmanship.
To keep your unit in top condition, we recommend routine cleaning. The
appliance must be disconnected from the supply mains before cleaning or
• V
acuum the air intake grille from the inside when you remove the filter to
replace it.
• Vacuum the small inlets with a soft brush attachment.
• Wipe the exterior of the unit with a soft, clean, damp cloth.
• Never clean with gasoline, chemical solvents or corrosive material also
as these agents may damage the surface.
• Do not allow foreign objects to enter the ventilation or exhaust openings.
This may cause electric shock or damage the unit.
• Do not try to repair or adjust any of the electrical or mechanical functions
on your Blueair unit yourself. Contact your local dealer or Blueair for
­warranty information.
How it works
Air passes through an ion chamber
where airborne particles are charged
with negative ions. Charged particles
are drawn to the HEPA­Silent™ filter
surface. Purified air, which is virtually
contaminant-free, is ­­re-circulated into
the room.

Getting the most from your
Blueair system
The Blueair system is easy to use. Make sure your unit is the right size for
your room, and change the filter according to the recommended filter replacement schedule. Remember that, just as air conditioners and heaters
have limits to the volume of air they can cool or heat, every air purification
system has limits to the volume of air it can clean. Follow these commonsense guidelines.
Close your windows
You wouldn’t throw open your windows on a hot summer day and expect
your air conditioner to work efficiently, because you can feel the hot air
coming in and the cool air going out. Even though you can’t see the
­contaminated air coming in and the clean air going out, the same logic
­applies to your air purifier.
Close your doors, too
Just as you might seal off part of your house on a cold winter night to keep
your heater working more efficiently, seal off the room in which your system
is working for best results. This is especially important for people using a
Blueair system to ease nighttime asthma or allergy attacks.
Run your system 24 hours per day
For best results, run your Blueair unit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Round-the-clock operation ensures that a continuous supply of clean,
­filtered air constantly circulates throughout the room. Blueair systems are
designed for phenomenally low power usage. In fact, it costs about the
same to power a Blueair air purifier as it does to power a single light bulb,
depending on the unit and the operating speed.

Patented HEPASilent™ technology makes the Blueair 301 incredibly quiet.
The unit comes with a H
­ EPASilent™ filter already installed.
Particle Filter. Includes a particle filter that removes dust, pollen, bacteria,
pet dander, mold spores and other airborne particles. The particle filter is
made of polypropylene, which help mechanically filter out airborne particles.
To maximize filter effectiveness, particles are negatively charged by the
Blueair unit before reaching the filter.
Smokestop™ Filter. Includes a filter with enhanced active carbon to remove
gaseous pollutants such as cigarette and cigar smoke or other VOCs (volatile
organic compounds, including household paints and other chemicals). You
may notice a slight odor from the enhanced active carbon when the filter is
first used; this will quickly dissipate.
For optimal performance, Blueair recommends that you replace the
filter every six (6) months.
We offer a convenient Filter Subscription Program in some countries.
­Contact your local dealer or Blueair to find out whether the program is
available to you.
IMPORTANT! Use only genuine Blueair filters to ensure proper function of
your unit and to qualify for full warranty coverage.
