Blueair Classic 405 - Replacement Filters
Replacing the recently discontinued Blueair 403, the new Blueair Classic 405 air purifier is engineered to not only be effective at removing airborne pollutants such as dust, pollen, pet dander and mould spores, but to be quiet, energy efficient and stylish at the same time. Using revolutionary technology, the Blueair 405 air purifier is capable of capturing particles three times smaller than traditional HEPA air purifiers can, providing improved filtration of hazardous, lung-penetrating particles such as ultra-fine dust, combustion particles, fine ash and even airborne bacteria.
In addition to its sleek new control panel and significantly lower energy consumption (on low), the most impressive new feature on the Blueair Classic 405 air purifier is that it is Wi-Fi enabled. By simply downloading Blueair's free Friend App (optional), you will be able to operate the Blueair 405's functions (e.g., airflow speed, LED light, child lock and night mode) from your smartphone wherever you have Wi-Fi access.
The Blueair Classic 405 air purifier is also designed to work in tandem with Blueair's Aware Indoor Air Quality Monitor. The Aware monitors your indoor air, sending real-time air quality data on PM2.5 particles, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and CO2 to your smartphone or smart device over Wi-Fi. Setting your air purifier in auto mode then allows the Aware to automatically boost the speed on your Blueair 405 in response to high pollutant readings in the room, returning it to low once the air purifier has dealt with the problem. Use of the connectivity features (i.e., Aware monitor or Friend App) with the 405 is strictly optional - the air purifier will do a stellar job of cleaning the air on its own!
Exclusive to Blueair air purifiers, HEPASilent technology combines mechanical filtration and electrostatic principles to achieve outstanding air cleaning that outperforms medical-grade HEPA filters alone. As room air is drawn into the Blueair Classic 405 by an ultra-quiet fan, an internal ionizer exerts a negative charge over the incoming particles, ensuring that they adhere effortlessly to the positively-charged filter material. By using a gradient media filter with progressively smaller openings, the Blueair 405 air purifier is able to achieve remarkable air cleaning results, capturing an impressive 99.97% of particles down to 0.1 microns.
The Blueair Classic 405 air purifier is available in two models. The Blueair 405 HEPASilent model is intended solely for allergen and particulate matter control. For those seeking added protection from hazardous chemicals, toxic gases and unpleasant odours, we recommend the more advanced Blueair 405 GO SmokeStop model. The Blueair 405 GO SmokeStop unit offers wide-spectrum chemical, gas and odour control, while still achieving the same outstanding level of particle collection as the Blueair 405 HEPASilent model. Featuring 2.2 lbs. of coconut shell activated carbon pellets impregnated with magnesium dioxide and copper oxide, the Blueair 405 GO SmokeStop model provides additional safeguards from tobacco and wood smoke toxins, carbon monoxide and other gaseous combustion byproducts, ethylene oxide, ozone and the harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in every home and workplace (e.g., formaldehyde, ammonia and benzene). In fact, we highly recommend the SmokeStop model if you are also purchasing the Aware Air Quality Monitor to be able to quickly adsorb VOCs when they are detected by the monitor.
A low-density filter, noise-muffling galvanized steel and precision Swedish engineering allow the Blueair Classic 405 air purifier to clean the air more quietly than most other brands of air purifiers. On the two lowest fan speed settings, the Blueair 405 air purifier offers whisper-silent operation with sound levels so low that you may wonder if your Blueair unit is actually on. Energy Star rated, the Blueair Classic 405 uses a mere 15 watts of power on its lower fan speed setting, significantly less power than other air purifiers on the market.
Unlike standard electrostatic air cleaners, the Blueair Classic 405 air purifier is perfectly safe for asthma and allergy sufferers because it releases absolutely no ozone or ozone by-products into the air. In fact, laboratory tests show that operating a Blueair 405 significantly reduces ozone concentrations in rooms where electronic devices (e.g., computers, printers, televisions) are operated.
Instead of the standard triclosan-coated paper or glass filter fibres used by other manufacturers, Blueair filters are constructed from ultrasonically bonded non-toxic polypropylene fibres. This material is the least harmful plastic for both people and the environment, and achieves outstanding performance without out-gassing or releasing irritating microscopic fibres into the air. Because Blueair filters are also waterproof, they naturally resist contamination from bacteria, viruses, and mould without chemical additives or washes.
To maintain optimal air cleaning performance and ensure warranty coverage, the filter in the Blueair Classic 405 air purifier must be replaced every 6 months. The air purifier's built-in filter replacement indicator will remind owners when it's time to change the filter. The filter itself can be replaced in about 30 seconds. Just open the door of your Blueair 405 unit, remove the old filter, slide the new one in, and close the door. Fast and simple!
Built for years of reliability, the Blueair Classic 405 air purifier has an all-steel housing that is powder-coated for endurance and protection, without any chemical off-gassing. In addition to their zero ozone emission, all Blueair air purifiers are constructed from environmentally friendly parts and recyclable materials. When discarded, Blueair filters decompose and the filter media converts into harmless carbon dioxide and water.
The sleek design, quiet operation and generous room coverage of the Blueair Classic 405 air purifier makes it perfect for mid-size spaces, including bedrooms, living rooms, family rooms, playrooms and workshops, as well as small single-room apartments. The Blueair 405 has built-in hand grips on either side of the unit for easier maneuverability, and is a neutral off-white and dark grey colour to blend into almost any décor.

“We have now been using the Blueair 403 HEPASilent air purifier for a week and both my wife and I are extremely satisfied. The Blueair 403 was for our bedroom, and in one night we immediately noticed a difference in the air quality. While the main reason for getting the air purifier was for my cat allergies, we are both sleeping better. I am a light sleeper, but the unit noise at the two lowest levels does not even register with me during the night. Also, thank you for the prompt delivery. I definitely recommend a Blueair unit and your company to anyone who is thinking of purchasing an air purifier.”
D. Crabb, Kingston, ON
“So far my Blueair 403 HEPASilent air purifier is working really well. I am almost off all allergy medication for my 2 kittens, and hopefully with some diligent cleaning, I can soon be completely medication free! It's made a huge difference, and as promised, it is very quiet.”
K. Pettit, London, ON
“I hardly ever give reviews, but Modern Alchemy certainly deserves one. The Blueair 403 HEPASilent air cleaner that you supplied is as quiet and efficient as claimed and your no-quibble service when I raised a small problem was outstanding. I have no connection with Modern Alchemy, other than as a satisfied customer.”
