This is one of our favorite air purifiers. It’s the whirlpool whispure 510. it’s a HEPA air purifier like most of the ones we carry and it’s great for spaces up to five hundred square feet like bedrooms, living rooms, offices, anywhere.
This thing is always highly rated and one of the reasons for that, is just that it filters really well. if you actually pull out a particle counter and measure the number of airborne particles filtered by the whirlpool, you’ll be amazed at how effective it is. especially for an air purifier at this price point.
How It Works?
Part of how it does this is a super powerful fan, which moves a lot of air through the unit especially when you put it on turbo mode. And no matter which mode you use it’s not going to drain your power, it’s Energy Star rated, which means that it’s passed a series of tests to ensure that it runs efficiently. Another cool thing is that the control panel actually shows you when the air purifier filters need to be changed.
It uses a combination of HEPA and carbon filters. The carbon filter lays right against the front this captures light odors and gases. It does a good job of reducing cooking odors pet smells and things like that. And here’s the HEPA filter which captures over 99% of airborne particles, down to 3/10 of a micron in size.
The HEPA filter lasts about a year, before you should replace it, Depending of course on how often you run the purifier how polluted your air was to start with things like that. The carbon filter lasts about three months and you can vacuum it clean between replacements.
But to really get the most out of your air purifier we really recommend using fresh ones. And they come in packs of four so you’re set for a whole year. You might want to go ahead and get a set of those now so you don’t have to think about it in three months.
They don’t cost much they don’t go bad and there’s even a starter kit you can get when you buy the air purifier that comes with an extra HEPA filter and four additional carbon filters, so you’re set for an entire year.
If you get that starter kit when you buy the air purifier you end up saving a little bit on those extra filters, so that’s always what we recommend. oh and here’s the black model it functions exactly the same as the white one we’ve been showing you and it looks pretty cool.
