Sense+ comes with Blueair’s patented HEPASilentPlusTM – the world’s most advanced and silent filter system. It’s
a revolutionary combination of mechanical and electrostatic filtration. Air is drawn into the air purifier where large
airborne particles and gaseous pollutants are captured in the first filter cassette. The air continues through an ion
chamber where particles not captured mechanically are charged with negative ions, so they get attracted and caught
by oppositely charged fibers in the second filter cassette. The purified air, virtually contaminant-free, is then re-circulated into the room.
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible
for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Maximum speed is recommended for fast initial cleaning or for heavily polluted air. After a few minutes,
the speed can be reduced. Minimum speed is generally recommended for nighttime use.
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
For best results, run Sense+ 24/7. This ensures that clean, filtered air constantly circulates throughout
the room. Sense+ uses as little as 7 W, less than a low-energy light bulb.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Sense+ should be placed in a location that allows air to circulate freely in, out and around the unit.
Minimum distance from another object is 10 cm.

Change filter
Sense+ comes with Blueair’s patented HEPASilentPlus, the world’s most advanced and silent filter
system. The unit uses two filter cassettes. Each cassette consists of two parts:
Advanced particle filter – removes dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, viruses and
other airborne pollutants down to the tiniest particle.
Active carbon filter sheet – removes gaseous pollutants such as cigarette and cigar smoke or other
VOCs (volatile organic compounds, including household paint and other chemicals).
To ensure the unit’s high quality performance we recommend that you only use original Blueair filters,
replacing them every 6 months.
Speed setting 2.
Speed setting 3 — next swipe will turn the unit off.
Care for it
To keep Sense+ in top condition, we recommend routine cleaning. Always disconnect the unit from
the electrical supply before cleaning or maintenance.
When change is required, a red indicator light will show on the
top display.
Filter change step-by-step:
Vacuum the small inlets with a soft brush.
Vacuum the air intake grille from the inside (e.g. when you change filter).
Wipe the exterior with the supplied cleaning cloth.
What you can’t do:
Never clean Sense+ with gasoline, chemical solvents or corrosive material – these agents may
damage the surface.
Never allow foreign objects to enter the ventilation or exhaust openings – this may cause electric shock or damage the unit.
Never try to repair or adjust any of the electrical or mechanical functions yourself. Contact your
local Blueair retailer.
1. Turn off the unit, pull out the power plug, and
put the unit down with the backside facing up
(on a soft surface like a blanket).
2. Pull out the two filter cassettes using the
handles. You may need to pull firmly.

Specifications based on U.S. models (120 VAC, 60 Hz with particle filter).
The CADR indicates how much filtered air is delivered (airflow) by the air purifier operating at the highest
setting, and how well the system removes tobacco smoke, dust and pollen pollutants from the air (efficiency).
Tests are performed in accordance with ANSI/AHAM AC-1. The maximum possible CADR ratings according
to this standard are: Tobacco Smoke: 450 cfm. / Dust: 400 cfm. / Pollen: 450 cfm.
Air changes per hour are calculated on the recommended room size, assuming 8-foot (2.4 m) ceilings. For
smaller rooms, the air changes per hour will increase.
The available electrical power voltage and frequency affects the power consumption of the unit. The power
consumption might therefore be different from the stated value.
