Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to Philips!To fully benefit from the support that
Philips offers, register your product at www.philips.com/welcome.
With this new living room air purifier (AC4064/AC4062) or bedroom air purifier (AC4054/
AC4052) you breathe cleaner air. For the best results, place the living room air purifier (AC4064/
AC4062) or bedroom air purifier (AC4054/AC4052) in a room where you spend most of your
time, e.g. the living room or bedroom.
Wherever there are people, plants or pets, there are airborne particles that can affect your
well-being, especially if you suffer from allergies. Because of these particles, the air inside a room may
be more polluted than the air in a large city.
Normally, particles are invisible and odourless. Nevertheless they can affect your health.The living
room air purifier (AC4064/AC4062) or bedroom air purifier (AC4054/AC4052) reduces the
amount of viruses, bacteria, animal dander and industrial pollutants in the air, which improves the air
quality.
Filtration in several stages
The living room air purifier (AC4064/AC4062) or bedroom air purifier (AC4054/AC4052) has a
unique multi-stage filtration system that ensures the best air quality:
-
- Stage 1:The pre-filter catches big particles.
-
- Stage 2:The corona particle charger charges finer particles.
-
- Stage 3:The ESP particle filter traps charged ultra-fine particles.
-
- Stage 4:Active oxygen sterilises trapped bacteria and viruses.
-
- Stage 5:The zeolite gas filter traps a wide range of harmful gases and odours.
-
- Stage 6: Active oxygen reacts with the zeolite gas filter to clean out the trapped gases and
odours, so that the filter rejuvenates.
