VEVA air purifiers like the VEVA 8000 are ideal for home use because they can clean the air in large or small rooms without you having to do more than plug the unit in. If you want to preserve the longevity and maximize the efficacy of your air purifier, however, you need to replace the filters once in a while. In this guide, we’ll talk about how to replace VEVA 8000 filters, why it’s important to change them and how often to do it.
You want the best of the best for your family and that includes the air quality in your home. Even if you keep your home clean, the air could be full of allergens, pollutants, and pathogens that could potentially cause issues for your family. That’s what air purifiers aim to solve.
Why Should You Replace the VEVA 8000 Filter?
If you’ve invested in an air purifier, then air quality is clearly important to you. In that case, you should also want to do everything you can to make sure the unit is working properly.
The best thing you can do to keep your air purifier working properly is to change the filters. In the same way you need to change the filter on your furnace every few months, you’ll need to replace your VEVA 8000 filters from time to time as well. The filters are designed to physically remove particles from the air and those particles accumulate on the surface of the filter over time. As more particles accumulate, it becomes more difficult for air to find its way through the filter and that impacts the function of the unit.
If you don’t replace your filters often enough, your air purifier won’t be as effective in removing odors, allergens, pollutants, and pathogens from the air. A dirty filter causes the air purifier to work harder as well, so it may break down sooner than a unit that is properly maintained.
How Often Should You Replace It?
It’s easy to understand why you should replace VEVA 8000 filters from time to time, but it’s not so easy to know when to do it.
Many air purifiers on the market are equipped with a filter change indicator light that goes on when it’s time to change the filter. What the manufacturer doesn’t tell you, however, is that the indicator is often nothing more than a timer. It’s set to go off after a certain amount of time to encourage customers to buy filters more often, even if it isn’t entirely necessary.
The VEVA 8000 air purifier doesn’t have a filter change indicator light, so you get to decide when it’s the right time to change the filter. So, how do you decide? Simply look inside the unit at the filter itself.
The first of the two filters you’ll find inside the VEVA 8000 is the activated carbon pre-filter. This filter captures larger particles and helps eliminate odors. It should be replaced every 2 to 3 months to extend the life of your HEPA filter. It’s time to change the carbon pre-filter when it’s covered in dust and particles – you’ll be able to clearly see the particles collected on the filter.
To view the second layer of filtration, the HEPA filter, you’ll need to remove the carbon pre-filter. The HEPA filter is designed to capture smaller airborne particles, so it will turn from white to gray or black over time. These filters last from nine to 12 months if you change the carbon filter regularly.
How to Replace VEVA 8000 Filters
The VEVA 8000 air purifier comes with one HEPA filter and four carbon pre-filters. If you change the carbon filter every three months, you should be able to get a full year out of the HEPA filter. Keep in mind, however, that filter longevity will be affected by the speed setting you choose, the hours of operation, and the air quality in your home.
When you run out of replacement filters for your VEVA 8000, you can purchase more on Amazon or through the VEVA website. Be sure to purchase authentic VEVA filters for the best results.
Here are the steps to follow to replace VEVA 8000 filters:
- Carefully remove the dirty carbon filter by peeling it away from the HEPA filter.
- Discard the dirty filter and set a new one next to the unit.
- Gently remove the HEPA filter by pulling the bottom away from the unit and pulling down.
- Take a clean HEPA filter and place it face-up on a flat surface.
- Place the carbon filter on the HEPA filter with the Velcro strips against the HEPA filter.
- Press gently against the carbon filter to make sure it is securely attached.
- Place both the HEPA filter and carbon filter into the unit, following the airflow labels.
