Brio Air Purifier


Using advanced air purification technology to clean the air you breathe, removing damaging fine and ultrafine particles as small as 0.01 microns or 10 nanometers, including viruses and germs, smoke, mold spores, dust, pet dander, and particles from wildfire smoke, auto exhaust and traffic, gas stoves, and industrial pollution. 

The patented design uses innovative electrostatic technology that keeps Brio’s effectiveness high—so your air stays clean—over the entire period between cartridge replacements. Brio is a more effective solution than HEPA, as it doesn’t have the drop in performance or filter clogging that affects all HEPA air purifiers. Plus, Brio's long-life, non-clogging filter can last a year or longer before it needs to be changed. So, Brio saves you time and money while deep cleaning the air you breathe. 

Brio is a great investment to make in your indoor air quality, and the filter savings over the years make it a good value, too.

          Brio Air Purifier FAQ


          Can Brio help my allergies?

          Fine particles too small to see—dust and dust mite waste, pollen, smoke, germs, and mold—can enter the upper respiratory tract and may worsen allergy symptoms. Ultrafine particles can penetrate further into the respiratory system, making their way into the lungs where they can cause inflammation.

          While we can’t provide medical advice, we can tell you that effective air purification is frequently recommended by medical professionals for allergy sufferers.

          Brio’s innovative APART (tm) technology is highly effective at removing fine and ultra-fine particles from indoor air. Because Brio doesn't clog, there's no drop off in air flow between filter changes and clean airflow is the key to better indoor air.

          Does Brio trap viruses including Covid-19?

          The short answer is yes.

          For an air cleaner to reduce viruses in the air, it must be able to remove small airborne particles (in the size range of 0.1-0.5 microns).

          In independent lab tests, Brio’s APART technology effectively removes particles including COVID-19 surrogate, in this size range in 15 minutes.

          It is important to note, however, that reducing virus particles is just one part of protection plan, as explained by the EPA:
          “When used properly, air purifiers can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a home or confined space. However, by itself, a portable air cleaner is not enough to protect people from COVID-19. When used along with other best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, operating an air cleaner can be part of a plan to protect yourself and your family.”

          Can Brio help with wildfire smoke?

          Yes, Brio can help. Fine wildfire smoke particles may be as small as 0.4-0.7 microns. Independent testing shows that Brio’s APART particle removal effectively traps particles in this size range including wildfire smoke. And because Brio stays at peak performance between cartridge changes, you can be confident smoke particles are being removed effectively.

          Where should I put Brio? Can I leave Brio on all day? All night?

          You can use Brio in almost every room of your home, including the basement. Brio is ideal as a living room or bedroom air purifier. Brio is also well-suited to small and medium sized offices.

          We think running Brio 24 x 7 is a great idea. Particle pollution in your home is often from ongoing, regular sources (dust and pets, mold, pollen, cooking, wood-burning fireplaces) or it could be episodic (a nearby wildfire, for example). Or both. Poor environmental air quality affects you inside your home, too.

          Particle pollution is also dynamic within a room over the course of daily life. Doors open and close. People move from room to room. So do pets. And so do airborne particles. Rooms aren’t airtight. Windows leak. Heating systems exchange indoor and outdoor air.

          Because of multiple types and sources of invisible particle pollution, we recommend leaving your Brio air purifier on, all day and all night. Set the fan to medium for everyday conditions and turn it to high when you need deep cleaning. The fan speed setting will also depend on the room size and your specific needs.

          As there is less air movement at night, air purifiers can often be turned to a lower setting at bedtime. This really depends on the level of particle pollution and the effectiveness of your air purifier at a low fan speed. If you wake up in the morning and your air quality has gone down, you may want to turn the fan to a higher setting.

          To gauge your air quality, we recommend using an independent air quality monitor for the most accurate information.

          How long will the APART Collection Cartridge last?

          Brio’s APART technology draws particles out of the airflow, so there’s nothing to clog or slow the clean air delivery rate. And the cartridge is designed to hold a high volume of particles. Together these features add up to a long cartridge life. Your actual environmental conditions and use will determine how often it needs replacing. In less-polluted areas, the cartridge may last much longer than a year. In areas with higher, ongoing pollution, the cartridge may need changing more often.

          We suggest changing the APART Collection Cartridge using Brio’s Check/Change Indicator as a guide or once every 12 months.

          Do Brio APART Collection Cartridges last longer than HEPA filters?

          Our lab tests have shown that Brio's APART Collection Cartridge stays at a peak performance level 5-10 times longer than identically tested HEPA-style air purifiers. HEPA filters lose effectiveness between the recommended filter changes because of how HEPA-style air purifiers work. Trapping particles in the filter reduces airflow and causes the clean air delivery rate to decline.

          Brio doesn’t have this issue.

          Instead, Brio draws particles away from the airflow, so performance stays consistently high, with no drop in the clean air delivery rate, until the APART Collection Cartridge is completely full. HEPA filters can't make the same promise.

          Does Brio reduce ozone?

          Yes, however, it’s important to understand what this means, exactly. There are a number of sources of ozone in the home, and the level of ozone in your home may be elevated by the presence of smog outdoors or by use of some home cleaning products. Thanks to Brio’s Refresh Plus filtration process, ozone in the living space can be reduced to a level below what it may have been before turning Brio on. Brio is certified as ozone-safe by the California Air Resources Board, the country’s most-stringent certifying organization for ozone.

          Do Brio APART Collection Cartridges last longer than HEPA filters?

          Looking for top-rated air purifiers? Brio scored a 95 on Modern Castle! Here's why: Brio is an advanced electrostatic air purifier or air cleaner machine (the terms are synonymous). It is categorized as a portable air purifier or room air cleaner since it can be moved from room to room, or to different places in a room. Brio cleans the air using a patented technology solution, developed at the University of Washington. Brio is different from HEPA air purifiers in three ways: Brio uses electrostatic filtration which draws particles out of the clean air flow; HEPA is a form of mechanical filtration which blocks particles. This technology difference results in a performance difference: Unlike HEPA air purifiers, Brio's particle removal technology is non-clogging, so there is no drop off in airflow between filter changes. And this in turn creates the third major difference between Brio room air purifiers and HEPA air purifiers: Because Brio doesn't clog, its high-capacity air filters last much longer than similarly size HEPA air purifier filters. Brio will save you on filter replacements over the years - a cost that many don't think about when buying an air purifier, but one that adds up all the same.
