Really love it!
I've had this unit running non stop for months now. Does a fantastic job. I highly recommend it!
Brio’s innovative technology is a new and remarkable alternative to HEPA-style air purification.
Brio removes particles as small as 10.7 nanometers using patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology (APART™) developed by air quality experts at the University of Washington.
Brio delivers a constant, clean airflow, with no filter clogging, for better indoor air quality all day, every day. HEPA air purifiers can't make the same promise.
Heading back to the office? Brio removes viruses in just 15 minutes, giving you peace of mind so you can focus on the tasks at hand. Easy operation, low maintenance, and stylish design make Brio a team favorite. Brio at Work
With so much time spent at home, better indoor air matters more than ever. Brio removes viruses and other damaging airborne pollutants—from gas cooking, fireplaces, dust, pollen, mold, wildfire smoke, and smog. Brio at home
Deep air cleaning begins with 360-degree air intake at Brio's elevated base.
The Pre-Filter traps larger, visible particles, pet hair, and debris.
Brio's powerful fan draws pollutants through the Particle Charger where they gain an electrostatic charge.
Charged particles are drawn out of the airflow and trapped in the APART Collection Cartridge until the long-life cartridge is full and ready for disposal.
Before returning purified air to the room, Brio's Refresh Plus Filter removes ambient ozone to keep your air safe.
You can and we think you should. Here's why: Brio is perfect for small- to medium-sized office spaces. Brio removes fine and ultrafine particles including viruses and germs. Brio's effectiveness stays at peak level (and tops HEPA). Plus, Brio offers easy operation, contemporary styling, long-lasting APART Collection Cartridges (lasting 12 months or more in typical office conditions) and minimal maintenance, Brio is the ideal back-to-the office companion.
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.”
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 (no clogging!), you can be confident smoke particles are being removed effectively.
Absolutely. Brio's powerful fan draws suspended dust and invisible fine and ultrafine particles into the APART Collection Cartridge without clogging a filter. In our lab testing, Brio removed two to four times more dust than the competitive HEPA air purifiers tested, and still retained 90% of it's original effectiveness, while the tested HEPA purifiers dropped to 50%! What that means for you is ongoing effectiveness between filter changes and a lot fewer filter changes. Keep in mind that heavier, visible dust may fall to the ground and won't be drawn into Brio's air purification chamber. For heavier dust that has landed on surfaces, you'll still need a vacuum (Brio works wonders, but it's not magic).
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 and can increase asthma-like symptoms.
While we can’t provide medical advice, we can tell you that effective air purification is frequently recommended by medical professionals for asthma and allergy sufferers.
Brio’s innovative APART (tm) technology is highly effective at removing fine and ultra-fine particles from indoor air.
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 APART Collection 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, or extreme pollution, the cartridge may need changing more often.
In general, we suggest changing the APART Collection Cartridge using Brio’s Check/Change Indicator as a guide or once every 12 months.
Every situation is different and the answer depends on how many air changes per hour (ACH) you need, which in turn depends on the air quality in your home. Keep in mind the higher the ACH, the faster the air will circulate through the air purifier, removing particle pollutants. This table should help you determine the best room size based on your conditions.
Yes, and yes. Do you need to? We think so. 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 up the fan to a higher setting.
To gauge your air quality, we recommend using an independent air quality monitor for the most accurate information.
I've had this unit running non stop for months now. Does a fantastic job. I highly recommend it!
My girlfriend smokes like a chimney and isn’t about to stop. Having had asthma, hating cigarette smoke, and being a selfish person while my girlfriend is not, she has agreed to smoke only in the bathroom. In addition to cigarette smoke, my girlfriend likes to light incense to change up the mood while she smokes. So it’s pretty much an inferno in there - of smoke, tar and perfume.
The bathroom is a small space in a small NYC apartment. Without an air filter, the smoke certainly
penetrates way past the bathroom door, seeping into all the other rooms. Over the last few years, unsatisfied, we’ve gone through three different brands of air purifiers. Then we got the Brio – and it’s definitely the best by far. There’s simply no comparison. It’s a kickass machine, clearing out all the smoke very quickly and effectively. The air purifier has three settings: low, medium and high. When my girlfriend is smoking in her little lair, she usually has it on medium and then low, reserving the high setting when she really wants to clear it out quickly - for when I have to use the bathroom for its traditional purpose. Other air purifiers we’ve tried haven’t cleared the air as well. And, more, all that smoke would clog up the filter after about a month and a half, and we’d have to replace them at significant cost. We’ve had the Brio for about four months now and the filter shows no sign of needing to be replaced. This machine uses some kind of new system so that filter life is greatly improved. I…
Quiet! Fits handsomely in any room! We placed ours in the bedroom. Could sense the freshness in the air immediately. Sleep better, feel healthier! Can’t wait for a whole house unit to be produced!
Works very well. Does not require much room
We love our new air purifiers! They make such a difference in each room that we ended up ordering several more. They have a great modern design, pleasant white noise sound, and we have already received many compliments and inquiries from family and friends.
I purchased two units, one for each floor of our house. After just two days, I can say already the air just feels cleaner all around. To operate the unit, I learned you do need to put the back cover on, which is obvious but not addressed in the user guide - the unit is smart enough to know not to run without the cover on. It is a bit difficult to pick up and move around, but the sacrifice is beauty - they are very nice to look at. I am very happy with my purchase and looking forward to seeing how the cleaner air affects my health. Thank you brio!
There are many outstanding features with Brio!
First and foremost, my nose wasn’t “stuffy” after the first night’s use ! There appears to be next to no dust around. The brio has several fan speeds and the slow speed is almost unnoticeable. Brio was easy to set up. Brio’s instructions were easy to follow. The filtration system is labeled to remind you about replacement or cleaning ! Brio is well made and rivals the quality of an apple product! Bravo Brio!
We love our Brios!!! We ended up purchasing multiple Brios for different spaces in our home, after noticing the improved quality of air immediately after our first use. I use to wake up with an allergy-like stuffy nose, and have been waking up with clarity of breath since using Brio in our bedroom. The rooms smell cleaner where a Brio is in use. I am so impressed by the low volume levels, given how much work the product is doing. It’s a very peaceful sound when in use. It is very easy to set up and use. I highly recommend this product!!!
