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 filters according to 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 common-sense
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
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.
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.

Care and
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 maintenance.
Vacuum the air intake grille from the inside
when you remove the filter to replace it.
Wipe the exterior of the unit with a soft, clean,
damp cloth.
English Blueair Pro Series 10
How it
Never clean with gasoline, chemical solvents
or corrosive material as these agents may
damage the surface.
Do not allow foreign objects to enter the intake
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.
Air passes through an ion chamber where airborne particles are charged with negative ions.
Charged particles are drawn to the HEPASilentTM
filter surface. Purified air, which is virtually
contaminant-free, is re-circulated into the room.
English Blueair Pro Series 11
the Filter
Before you start
changing the filter,
turn off the unit and
remove the plug from
the wall socket.
Turn the unit off and open the intake
door by pulling at the top edge. The
intake door is on the right hand side
when facing the front of the unit.
Keeping the filter sides together, line
up the new filter into the unit using the
guiding bars in the top and bottom of
the filter housing.
English Blueair Pro Series 12
Gently push the new filter in.
The filter is fitted into the unit in
a V shape. Two tabs protrude on
the sides.
Push the two filter sides out using
the tabs.
Using the tabs, push the two filter
sides together.
Gently pull the dirty filter straight out
of the unit.
Re-attach the intake door.
Turn on the unit.

2–7 for all filter packs.
English Blueair Pro Series 13
Adding the
Carbon+ Filter
Keeping the filter sides closed, gently
slide the Carbon+ Filter into the unit.
Push the sides out towards the
main filter.
Snap the Carbon+ Filter to the main
filter frame tab.
Patented HEPASilentTM technology makes the
Blueair Pro Series incredibly quiet. The unit
comes with a HEPASilentTM 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 mechanically
filters out airborne particles. To maximize filter
effectiveness, particles are negatively charged by
the Blueair unit before reaching the filter.
SmokeStop™ Filter. Includes a combined
particle and active carbon filter to remove
gaseous pollutants such as cigarette and cigar
smoke or other VOCs (volatile organic compounds, including household paints and other
chemicals). Adding activated carbon to a filter
may affect airflow and CADR. You may also
notice a slight odor from the carbon when the
filter is first used; this will quickly dissipate.
Carbon+ Filter. An extra active carbon filter
stage that can be mounted in the Blueair Pro
Series in addition to the main HEPASilentTM particle
filter or SmokeStop™ filter. It provides extra
protection against gaseous contaminants such
as formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide and volatile
organic compounds.
For optimal performance, Blueair
recommends that you replace filters every
six (6) months of use.
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.
