Portable Air Purification for the Office

Posted by admin on November 17, 2017 in Air Purification with No Comments


We have come a long way from the early clunky models of air purification systems. Now we have the option to choose what kind of system to perfectly fit our needs. Some of us require an air purifier to cover an entire warehouse or an entire building. Others need one to cover a room or two rooms while some might need to cover just one small room. Alpine Air Technologies is here today to help you find an air purifier for your office area or for your personal area.

What should I be looking for in an air purifier to cover my office area?

When looking for an air purifier to cover your office area, you need to find one that is portable. A portable one allows you to move it around and to easily transport it. It is so important for your office purifier to be portable because you can have it with you wherever you go. You will never have to go without clean air if you have a portable office purifier. Another extremely important quality of an office air purifier is the amount of noise it makes while running. Your office one has to be silent because you cannot afford to bother other people as well as yourself. Your coworkers will be irritated if you bring in a noisy machine to work.

So I just need to find an air purifier that is compact and quiet?

Alpine Air Technologies does not recommend that you settle for any air purifier that is compact and quiet. Why not have an air purifier that is compact, quiet, and powerful enough to completely destroy any pollutants in the air? You are setting your standards too low if you just want any old purifier. You need an Alpine Air Technologies certified air purifier. Our LA-500 models are engineered specifically for single rooms and office areas with your needs in mind. Not only is it one of the most portable purifiers in our store, but it is also powerful enough to kill particles as small as 1 micron. It sits at less than 4 pounds and is less than 1.5 feet tall so you can take it with you anywhere you go and store it anywhere you want.

WOW! The LA-500 sounds like a great deal!

It is. You will not regret your purchase. An ultra-portable and compact air purifier capable of destroying any and all air pollutants while quietly running in the background; the Alpine Air Technologies LA-500 is everything you have been looking for.

Stop by the Alpine Air Technologies website HERE to purchase your LA-500 or if you need any further assistance in finding an air purifier!

The Untrustworthy eBay Seller you shouldn’t Buy from

Posted by admin on May 26, 2017 in Air Purification with No Comments


So you’ve purchased you air purifier via eBay because the price was cheaper and you thought you would get your bang for your buck. Now, your unit doesn’t work, nor the seller who sold you it doesn’t reply to your calls. This is the typical untrustworthy eBay seller. Don’t worry, you are not alone! We’ve had many reports and notifications about untrustworthy eBay sellers who claim they manufacture and sell genuine Alpine products, when they’re actually selling customers knock-off imitation models which serve nowhere near the efficiency of real Alpine Living Lightning air purifiers serve. And this is exactly why we are writing, to inform our customers so they can be aware if in case they ever encounter such a situation.

eBay sellers aren’t the only untrustworthy sellers we have had reports about either. There are a few more third party sellers which also claim they sell real Alpine Living Lightning products, however they’re only trying to lure customers for their own profits. Please visit our consumer warning page where you can see how customers in the past have been tricked by various websites’ sellers in the past for purchasing our units. These third party companies, like eBay for example, do not provide any sort of warranty and most likely, they’re lying to you if they claim they do! Only our company offers such warranty programs as we have the real Alpine Living Lightning air purifiers which won’t break down soon after purchase like imitating units. The units can be cheaper, however you will just have to buy cheaper units more frequent. You would be investing in quantity instead of quality, and for your respiratory health, this spells a recipe for disaster.

What’s so “New” about Fresh Air LA-3500 v.2.0 Living Lightning Alpine Air Purifier?

Posted by admin on March 17, 2017 in Air Purification with No Comments


Alpine’s Fresh Air LA-3500 v2.0 Living Lightning purifier can clean your home with the newest updated technology guaranteeing you the best results you’ve experienced yet. The model offers a plethora of benefits: eliminates smoke/odors/chemicals/allergens, sanitizing mold/bacteria feature, UVC technology, customizable, quiet, etc. In fact, it uses the same exact process Mother Nature uses to keep the air outside fresh and clean via negative ions and oxygen uses. On the other hand, most other brands are unsuccessful in fully cleansing an area effectively as they rely on untreated air to pass through them, thus only purifying a portion of the air. However, what makes the technology “more new”?

There are many new features and benefits that come with the LA-3500 v2.0 model that make it scientifically proven to efficiently clean any indoor area. The following are newly implemented parts or technologies (by Alpine) unique to this particular model (older models will not have any of these advanced mechanisms or processes:

 

-Double prong stainless steel negative ionizer (front of the fan): This new part not only releases trillions and trillions of ions for a faster air particulate reduction, but also will not rust over time.

-Separate activated oxygen control (O3): This new technology allows the owner to have full control over adjusting the O3 feature as the model can work with or without O3. Thus, it’s easier to turn the unit on and off.

-Four levels of commercial strength air purification: This new technology allows a more powerful and quick elimination of pollutants and bacteria. The user can set it manually or via a remote, giving air quality control afterwards. This feature is great for homes and business establishments seeking all-in-one solutions to indoor air purification.

-High intensity germicidal UV light: Coming with a photo-catalytic filter, this new part increases protection against bacteria, pollutants, and even pathogenic living organisms.

-Adjustable purification timer: This new technology is an optional feature allowing users to maintain control over various time periods of their purifier (original purifiers would make users use the unit 24/7). This can be extremely beneficial as users can save time, money, and the lifespan of the unit!

-Improved, washable HEPA filter: On the back of the unit, this new part offers improved internal protection from pollutant build-up, hence, decreasing corrosion, and ultimately, expanding the lifespan. It’s easy to maintain as it takes less than a few minutes to routinely clean.

-TiO2 photo-catalytic filter: This new part on the rear of the unit offers a powerful photo-catalytic ionization and oxidation mechanism while working with the UV bulb. This results in additional oxidation and breakdown of particles, chemicals, and even pathogenic organisms. Easy maintenance!

-Carbon filter and pre-filter: The carbon filter on the back of the unit filtrates floating particles and removes odors. The pre filter filtrates larger particles which an original carbon filter would have trouble filtrating effectively. This makes your unit more durable!

-Stainless steel quality parts: Because many of the parts are made from stainless steel now, there will be much less corrosion, furthering the unit’s lifespan.

-Laminated wood cabinet: This new part helps make your unit more durable as it won’t break easily if accidently dropped or banged.

Is my Fan Blade Working Efficiently in my New Air Purifier?

Posted by admin on January 30, 2017 in Air Purification with No Comments


The following are guidelines to tighten your fan blade for the following new air purifier models: LA-2000 to Classic LA-3500 (Model #: E300/RH02; 300/RH02; 300/H02; 300/UH02; HL2PRO; ZL-3500/UV)

 

Do you think the performance of your unit is being effected by a faulty fan blade? Before you secure your loose fan blade, dismantling your unit is mandatory. It shouldn’t take longer than about 15 minutes as it’s quite easy to remove the chassis from the cabinet. First, unscrew the two knobs on the front side of the unit. This would be the 03/Sanitizer and Fan/UV left and rights knobs which both have a small screw attaching them to the unit. Locate the tiny circular opening within each of the knobs to access the screws and unscrew each.

Now, on a hard surface, place the unit upside down and unscrew the bottom two bolts. Then, flip the unit back to its upright position (and on a hard surface still), and you should have easy access to the chassis (mechanism) of the unit. Remove it. Once you’ve moved the chassis, remove the metal protection bar by unscrewing and disconnecting it. Now, you should have easy access to the fan blade!

The blade should be positioned in the middle of the fan motor shaft itself, which is almost half way from the fan motor body and shaft. It shouldn’t be too close to the fan motor body nor in the very front of the fan motor shaft because it may risk touching the two metal prongs of the negative ionizer. Again, it should be placed in the middle of the fan motor shaft, which is an inch away from each end of the fan motor. Fasten the metal clamp of the fan blade by using pliers carefully. Do not maneuver the fan blade drastically and try to keep the fan blade on at all times when securing it. The metal clamp should be right in the middle of the fan blade over its opening (through which the fan motor shaft fits).

Now, reassemble the metal bar in front of the fan blade (and, if applicable, screw in the green ground wire connecting to the metal bar). Place the chassis mechanism fully back into the cabinet and reassemble the unit by following the instructions in reverse (secure the top, then bottom surfaces). Now, plug in your unit and turn it on as you monitor it the next couple of days. Please visit alpineairtechnologies.com if you have further questions!

Servicing/Replacing an Air Purifier with Alpine Air Purifier

Replacing your Ozone Plates on your HMA-250 Air Purifier

Posted by admin on November 13, 2016 in Air Purification with No Comments


Do you have the model# HMA-250 air purifier, or any other old purifier, that needs some servicing and replacement of parts? Is it getting rusty, ineffective, and problematic? Have you thought about the newer technology and science behind up-to-date air purifiers and their effectiveness? Well, if these thoughts are running through your head, you’ve reached the right place!

For the HMA-250 unit, a commercial air purifier manufactured in the early 1990’s, the main purpose is to sanitize air. Unlike today’s air purifiers, they didn’t feature an ionization process of removal for pollutants in the air. Hence, this unit isn’t actually meant for residential daily operation. The “right side only” caption means that only the right side of the air purifier can fit ozone plates, and not any universal ozone plate. In addition to the plates, all other parts of this model are no longer available as of many years ago. This is simply because the demand of this unit, as well as other older units, has significantly diminished as everyone has switched to newer models. Newer models are behind efficient technology that today’s scientists approve of and admire as they are safer, more effective, quieter, more powerful, and much more.

If you were looking to replace a certain part on your old air purifier, we highly recommend taking advantage, instead, of our special trade in program offered for a limited time. This program basically cuts your cost in half for a brand new, top-quality, alpine air purifier, with free shipping all just for trading in your current air purifier (no matter what condition it’s in). Your new air purifier is shipped to you for free, and comes with a three-year parts and labor warranty, so there really is no catch. You may as well invest in a reliable and durable air purifier now than repair and service your current unit, and then have to only do the same thing in another few months.

Fixing a Loose Fan Blade in my new Air Purifier

Posted by admin on September 22, 2016 in Air Purification with No Comments


Is your fan blade on your new or used air purifier loose and not securely attached? This may cause damage to your unit and your unit may malfunction, so it’s important you deal with this issue as soon as you can. You must tighten the loose blade immediately to your unit, before you begin to use it. Here are specific instructions for tightening the fan blade on the following Alpine air purifiers: LA-2000 to Classic LA-3500 – model #’s: E300/RH02; 300/RH02; 300/H02; 300/UH02; HL2PRO; ZL3500/UV.

Tightening the fan blade requires disassembling your air purifier. It’ll be a smooth process if you follow these instructions, and it shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes to complete. First, you will have to unscrew the two knobs in the front of your air purifier. These are the left knob, which is the 03/sanitizer, and the right knob, which is the fan/UV. Note that each of the knobs are attached to the air purifier with a tiny screw. Find the little round opening within each of the knobs to access the screws and undo them.

Second, once the knobs have been safely removed, you need to carefully flip the unit upside down. Make sure you are placing it on a solid, hard surface to ensure stability to the ground (tables, countertops, wooden floors, etc). Then unscrew the two bottom bolts, and flip it back to an upright position. Now, you should be able to remove the chassis from the cabinet and safely place it on a hard surface.

Third, you will locate the metal protection bar. It should be directly in front of the fan blade. Carefully unscrew it, giving you easy access then to the fan blade which should be sitting in the center of the motor shaft. The blade should not be too close to the front of the motor shaft nor too close to the fan motor body, as this would allow for contact to be made to the two metal prongs of the negative ionizer. Realistically, it should be placed in the middle of the shaft, about one inch away from each end of the fan motor. With access to the fan blade, carefully fasten the metal clamp of the fan blade with pliers. The metal clamp should be right in the middle of the fan blade over the opening through which the fan motor shaft is placed in. If you don’t have pliers, you can easily obtained some at any local supplies store such and Home Depot or Lowes.

Lastly, it’s time to put everything back together. You will reattach the metal bar in front of the fan blade and screw in the green ground wire which is connected to the metal bar (not all models will have the green ground wire however). Then place the chassis back into the cabinet fully and reassemble the unit’s screws and bolts by following the above instructions in the opposite order. You will want to keep an eye out for the fan blade movement for the next few times you use the unit to ensure you have solved the issue.

Should I Oil my Air Purifier’s Fan Motor?

Posted by admin on September 22, 2016 in Air Purification with No Comments


 

Are you wondering about ways to improve the efficiency of your air purifier? Are you considering oiling your unit’s fan motor to help the noise problem that you’ve been hearing from your unit? Well, you’ve reached the right place if you’re in need of expert advice! Oiling the fan motor is a big NO, simply stated. Oiling the fan motor does not help the noise issue. The noise actually comes from within the fan motor itself – most of the time due to worn out bearings which already have oil on them (so adding more oil will not help and in some cases may make your issue worse). The only solution to this problem (as we have seen many of these cases in the past from previous customer inquiries) is to replace the fan motor itself. Replacing the fan motor will eliminate the noise you’ve been hearing from your unit once and for all. (Alpine Air Technologies offers a 3 year parts and labor warranty, so if you’ve purchased an Alpine Air Technologies unit which is less than three years old, we will replace it for free!)

Please note that when the fan blade makes noise (not the fan motor – it’s important to distinguish this), oiling the fan motor shaft only (on which the fan blade is sitting on) will maybe help the noise issue, but it’s not guaranteed. This is only if the noise is from the fan motor, which is extremely rare. If you wish to clean the fan blade itself, the best way to do this is to either use a can of compressed air (from any local supply store) to spray off the dust, or wipe it with a damp cloth. The fan motor itself can also be cleaned with a can of compressed air, or wiped off with a dry cloth. If you need additional help for cleaning your unit, please refer to your unit’s specific maintenance instructions.

The Best Way you can Clean your Air Purifier

Posted by admin on September 22, 2016 in Air Purification with No Comments


Having an air purifier is a necessity these days as the air inside our homes and offices are constantly contaminated with bacteria, allergens, pollution, and dust particles. Breathing clean and clear air is important for our short and long term health, absent of these contaminants. If you already have an air purifier, you’re a step ahead already! Although having an air purifier is a necessity, you must treat it as a luxury because you must properly maintain and clean your unit periodically. Doing so will ensure you that your air purifier will last a long time while being fully effective.

Cleaning your unit is strongly recommended as contaminants usually pile up inside the unit after some time of being used (the time varies depending on how often you use your unit). We recommend performing simple maintenance every month on your air purifier. Every time you clean your unit, you should have a checklist of cleaning these parts: ceramic ozone plates, back carbon filter (if your unit has one), interior of the unit, fan motor, and fan blade.

 

  1. Ceramic Ozone Plates: Once every 30 days you should be washing the ozone plates. We recommend placing the plates in a bucket of warm water. It would be even more beneficial if you add clear/lemon ammonia added (add one teaspoon to one cup of water and mix, then add to bucket). Let the plates sit in the bucket for water (with or without clear/lemon ammonia) for a couple of minutes. Then rinse them off well ensuring you’ve washed both sides. After, use a soft toothbrush to softly scrub the metal screen on each side of the ozone plates to remove residue. Finally, allow for the plates to completely dry off before placing them back inside your unit. To ensure a long-lasting life for your air purifier, you should replace the ozone plates every three years, or whenever you notice the ozone plates are starting to get worn out.
  2. Back Carbon Filter: It’s recommended to also clean the back carbon filter of your air purifier every time you clean the ceramic ozone plates (however, not all units will have a back carbon filter – if this is the case, you can skip this step). Use a can of compressed air to spray off the dust on the filter. If you don’t have a spray can, you can easily find one at an office supply store (like Home Depot). It’s also recommended to wash the filter every three months and to replace it every year. You can replace the back carbon filter or ceramic ozone plates here.
  3. Interior of Unit: Additionally, you can used the can of compressed air to efficiently eliminate any particles/contaminants once every month (or whenever as needed). Once the back carbon filter is removed, it’s easy to access the interior of the unit.
  4. Fan Motor and Fan Blade: As the back carbon filter was removed, you should also remove the front grill of your unit to gain access to the fan motor and fan blade. Again, using the can of compressed air to spray away any contaminants is highly recommended as the best method to clean these components.

 

Performing these basic tasks periodically will ensure a longer-lasting lifetime and effectiveness of removing air contaminants from your air purifier. For additional specific maintenance instructions, refer to your model’s user guide.
