Air Quality & Volcano Emissions Information

What is vog?

Vog is a term that refers to volcanic smog. It is the haze you may see in the air that is caused by a combination of weather, wind conditions and volcanic activity. Vog becomes thicker or lighter depending upon the amount of emissions from Kilauea volcano, the direction and amount of wind, and other weather conditions.

Is vog harmful to my health?

People with pre-existing respiratory conditions (such as asthma or emphysema) are more likely to experience health effects from vog which may include: headaches, breathing difficulties, increased susceptibility to respiratory ailments, watery eyes, and sore throat. The long-term health effects of vog are unknown although some studies are under way at the University of Hawai‘i.

Most of the time here in Hawaii we have the best air
but when the Vog Days come, its another story.
Thankfully, there is a way to clean the air from harmful
volcanic fog.

  • Clean the Vog

    This portable air purifier is designed to completely clean VOG down to the last molecule. How does it do it?  It has a miniature “catalytic converter”, similar to the one in a car that rips apart the VOG at the molecular level.

    Click here to see diagram on how the catalytic converter works.

    Before the air can even get to the catalytic converter, it first has to pass through 4 stages of filtration including hospital grade HEPA filtration.

  • UV Lamp + Pro Cell

    ​Trio Portable has a  built-in germicidal UV lamp that kills mold spores, bacteria and airborne flu virus. Another added benefit is the removal of VOC gasses (typically the contaminants causing foul odors in your home) Pet odors, Damp/Mildew “dirty sock syndrome”, cooking odors, etc. Pro-Cell and UV take out what mechanical filtration cannot –Not to mention the pollen and airborne particulates that comes with landscape and plant life.

  • Portable

    The Trio is portable so you can move it around the house. Keep one in the bedroom at night, and move it to the living room during the day.

  • Local & Reliable

    Trio Portable is made in the USA, has a five year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee(from Island Cooling LLC).

  • 1000 Sq Ft Coverage

    Trio Portable can clean an area of over 1000+ square feet, but it is proximity based. Move it to different areas of the home to target those areas, or ​add a second unit.

About Us

about Air Purifiers Hawaii

Brothers Al and Ivan Whitworth started Island Cooling in 2008 after discovering the energy efficient whole house fan and how well it performed in Hawaii’s climate. As they answered the need for cool natural air, they discovered a need for pure clean air, especially on VOG days.  –This sent Al on a quest to discover the best air purification product for Hawaii’s climate and thus Air Purifiers Hawaii is born.

“I can’t say enough good things about the Whitworth brothers and their service. They are honest, hardworking and provide innovative solutions to Hawaii. I have purchased the Whole House Fan, Solar Guard and now the Air Purifier and I am really happy about all three purchases, Mahalo Al & Ivan”
