If you’re constantly bothered by allergy symptoms at home, the Whirlpool Whispure or AP25030K air purifier is the perfect answer. This manufacturer has an excellent reputation on the market for all sorts of electrical appliances and this model has not let them down. It’s easy to move around and it will adequately clean the air in a room up to 320 square feet, making it perfect for bedrooms and small living/working areas.
There are a good many features with the AP25030K, however the most discerning is probably the way in which the filtration system works. The unit comes with an outside grill which prevents larger particles from entering the unit, which helps to preserve the filters within. The next stage is the carbon filter which eliminates various household odors and traps larger particles. It also helps to preserve the HEPA filter within.
The HEPA filter is the last stage, at which point allergens such as dust, pollen and dander are removed from the air. This part of the filtration system will remove 99.97% of microns as small as 0.3 in size (standard HEPA qualities). Additionally, the manufacturer has included many features for ease of use.
What We Liked
- Versatile Quiet Operation
Customizing the level of filtration couldn’t be easier, as the Whirlpool AP25030K comes with 3 powerful fan speeds. It's also part of the Quiet Partner system, making it perfect for over-night use.
- Energy Star Rated
If you’re concerned about energy bills rising by using an air purifier there is no need with this model. It's energy star rated and won’t break the bank in terms of electricity.
- Space Saving Design
When in operation the AP25030K pulls air in from the front and releases clean air from the top. This means it can sit flush to a wall, fitting perfectly into any small room.
- Clean and Fresh Air
The True HEPA filtration system will remove up to 99.97% of allergens as small as 0.3 microns. This model also has a very high clean air delivery rate system (CADR).
What We Didn't Like
- Possible Design Flaw
Various consumers have complained about an acrid/chemical smell from this unit. Whirlpool is yet to confirm this is a design flaw rather than user error.
It has to be said the AP25030K is not the prettiest air purifier on the market. The manufacturer appears to have gone for substance rather than style.
If you have small/medium rooms in your home that don’t require a heavy duty air purifier, the AP25030K will keep the air clean and fresh. It’s perfect for bedrooms due to the quiet operation and will work well in any office or living area. It’s not the most attractive unit on the market, but it can be placed in an inconspicuous part of the room. For the price, this is a great buy.Review by AirReflect ©
