aeris health, the Swiss leader in commercial and residential air purification systems that are improving health globally, and facing huge demands on its manufacturing as sales have doubled month over month since January, announced the completion of its $3.3 million Series A funding round to meet US demand. The funding, led by Tencent co-founder Vic Lee, Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen, PreAngel, Sarona Ventures, and additional investors, representing investments from the U.S., China, Israel and Switzerland.
aeris develops state-of-the-art, AI-powered air purifiers which learn and adapt to each user’s personal habits and the air quality in their home over time by gathering data with proprietary sensor technology. Developed by MIT engineers, aeris’s medical-grade purifiers have been proven to remove at least 99.95% of indoor pollutants down to .1 microns, high clean air delivery rate (CADR), HEPA ratings of 13 and above as well as a sophisticated design.
Unlike most other air purifier companies, aeris is not reliant on third-party purchases, allowing the startup to develop air purifiers that are truly unique in the market, higher quality than competing models, and adapted for specific conditions such as odors and viruses without any loss of suction power, a common issue among conventional HEPA filters.
“The global pandemic has fueled a major shift in consumer awareness and concern over the air we breathe. Demand for clean air has never been higher. And our rapid growth in sales is proof that consumers recognize that not all air purifiers are built the same,” said aeris CEO, Pierre Bi. “With the latest round of funding, we’re now in a position to further capture this enormous opportunity and help consumers across the U.S. and North America protect themselves and their families from airborne pollutants, including coronavirus.”
aeris provides one of the only air purifiers in market today proven to remove feline coronavirus from the air, and are certified by major third-party standards testers, including AHAM and EN1822.
In addition to securing new funding, aeris purifiers will also be available in more than 600 Best Buy stores across the U.S. beginning fall of 2020.
aeris offers four unique products to best suit the needs of each customer, room size and budget:
- aair lite: A small air purifier that can remove 99.95% of the air-borne bacteria, mold, mildew, odor, and other pollutants from any space up to 350 ft².
- aair 3-in-1-pro: Using state-of-the-art technology, the aair 3-in-1 Pro eliminates indoor air pollutants while becoming more efficient and effective over time. For rooms 750 ft² and larger.
- aair Medical Pro: Hospital-grade air filtration that prevents even the most difficult airborne health hazards from affecting users.
- aair Gas Pro: Combining the power of our strongest air purifier and a filter designed with the ability to move odors at a molecular level, the aair Gas Pro will ensure that you never have to worry about distracting or embarrassing odors in your home again.
Since its inception in 2017, aeris has been recognized with two prestigious design awards: the iF Design Award in 2017, and the Red Dot Design Award Winner in 2019.
Ultimately, aeris has plans to expand into markets beyond air purification. Pierre Bi expanded on this, saying that the company see itself as a “fundamentals of health” company. This will mean using the design and engineering principles applied to air and expanding it into areas like water, nutrition, and sleep.
“Our vision is to create technology that aids in the long-term health of our customers. 600,000 to 700,000 Americans die early from air pollution every year: we see this as one example of many such hidden, lower-prioritized health concerns that must be urgently addressed, “Bi explained. “That’s where aeris will come in.”
aeris is a Swiss company dedicated to improving global health through increased access to clean air. After launching its first purifier in China in 2017, the devices instantly became a hit for its ability effectively dealing with China’s heavy pollution. Customers soon reported relief from respiratory problems and that they were feeling more energized than they had in years and as a result, global health issues related to air quality soon became aeris’ number one priority. By 2018, aeris had expanded into Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, France, and Mexico; and, in 2019, the company expanded further to the United States, and is currently available in four different models at retailers such as Target, QVC, Amazon and on the company’s website.
