Daikin gains Quiet Mark certification for air purifiers

Daikin has gained the Quiet Mark of approval for two of its air purification systems.

Models MCK55W and MC55VB which effectively filter dust, pollen, allergens and other particles to improve indoor air quality, have been rigorously tested by Quiet Mark experts and found to be among the quietest air purifiers on the market.

Research carried out by the World Health Organisation shows the detrimental impact that environmental noise pollution has on mental and physical health. In a post-pandemic world with people spending increased time indoors, it has become ever more important to ensure that our internal environment is both healthy and peaceful.

Excess noise can increase stress levels whilst impacting on sleep patterns, productivity and morale. It has also been linked to depression, anxiety, hypertension and cardiovascular disease resulting from a distressed reaction to excessive and unwanted sound disturbance. So, whilst it’s imperative to ensure a supply of clean, fresh air into our internal environment, it is also important that climate management systems operate as quietly possible to support a vital health balance.

This is essentially one of Daikin’s key design priorities. Offering the largest selection of heating, cooling and air purification solutions to suit all environments, Daikin strives to deliver appliances that are compact, effective and quiet. From removing excess water vapour in the air to extracting airborne pollutants such as pollen, mould, dust and viruses, and filtrating harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from carpets and cleaning materials, all Daikin air purification systems have been designed to improve indoor air quality and help maintain a comfortable temperature and humidity level.

Moreover, Daikin’s air purifiers are an additional measure in the fight against respiratory diseases and eliminate 99.98% of the human coronavirus HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes. This virus is of the same family as SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind the COVID-19 pandemic. They are also 99.93% effective against the H1N1 virus that causes common flu.

In addition to the aforementioned air purifiers, Daikin’s Altherma 3 H HT heat pump has also been Quiet Mark certified, with the appliance operating at whisper-quiet levels. Delivering heating, cooling and instant hot water, the engineering for the Altherma 3 H HT focused on providing comfort and energy savings for those homeowners seeking a green and cost-effective alternative to a traditional boiler or heating system.

Martin Passingham, Product Manager at Daikin said: “We recognise how important is it to help owners and occupiers keep their buildings as calm and peaceful as possible. Quiet Mark certification is the unique consumer and trade champion mark of approval. It provides reliable and independent information about the level of sound a product makes, with the primary focus to improve the health and wellbeing of users of that product.

“We are proud that our products have been found to be among the quietest air purification products on the market, delivering the ultimate in climate management and acoustic comfort.”

For over 90 years, Daikin has been providing innovative, premium quality indoor climate management solutions to meet ever-changing climate and customer requirements.
