Laze and Vog Air Purifiers: Three Units That Are Good for Hawaii Residents

Since Kilauea began erupting in early May, lava flows from the volcano have destroyed hundreds of homes. At the same time, gaseous products of the volcano have been pouring into the air of Hawaii, putting the health of people on the Big Island in jeopardy. If you want to know more about vog and laze, you can check out our previous blog posts on those subjects.

 

Since the eruptive cycle of Kilauea has now been going on for over a month and there’s no concrete answer as to when it will end, it’s time for people who live in the affected areas to start thinking seriously about getting good laze and vog air purifiers that will protect them from the pollutants they are being exposed to.

 

  Best Air Purifiers for Vog and Laze

 

  Airpura C600DLX

 

With the capacity to filter out harmful gases, especially sulfur compounds, the Airpura C600DLX is one of the best vog air purifiers out there. This unit covers up to 2,000 square feet and performs two air changes per hour to maximize air quality. In addition to capturing gases, the C600DLX also offers HEPA filtration that can protect you from dust and ash. The Airpura C600DLX also ships free to Hawaii. When it comes to protecting yourself from the ash, gas and dust from Kilauea, this is our top recommendation

 

  Airpura V600

 

A close runner-up to the C600DLX in the Airpura line is the V600. This air purifier is great for removing many gaseous compounds, and also features a HEPA filter for ash removal. Like the C600DLX, the V600 is eligible for free shipping to Hawaii.

 

  EnviroKlenz

 

Another popular ash and vog air purifier is the EnviroKlenz unit, which uses a unique gas-neutralizing technology to keep harmful gases out of your home air. This unit may not be as powerful as the Airpura C600DLX, but it is still a great choice. EnviroKlenz also makes air purifying masks that are an ideal solution for keeping yourself safe outside the home until Kilauea settles down again.

 

  Field Controls TRIO

 

Last but not least in the area of smoke and vog air purifiers is the Field Controls TRIO, a portable medical-grade unit that we recommend for a wide range of different home uses. With excellent carbon and HEPA filtration, the TRIO is a great all-around air purifier that effectively cleans up to 1,000 square feet. We also have some of the best prices you’ll find on the TRIO. Though shipping to Hawaii on this unit is $85, you’ll find that our price plus shipping is still a better deal than most other TRIO offerings.

 

These are a few of the great air purifiers you can use to protect yourself and your family while Kilauea is still unusually active.
