While maintaining a clean home environment has always been important, it has become even more pertinent with the advent of COVID-19. To ensure there are no pesky airborne particles lurking in your home, check out these three air purifiers, which promise to keep your home germ-free.
Philips 3000i series
If you suffer from allergies, the Philips Air Purifier 3000i may be what you are looking for. To begin with, it has a comprehensive filtration system. Its three-layer filter consists of a pre-filter that catches dust and hair, an activated charcoal filter that removes harmful gases and odours, and a NanoProtect HEPA filter that captures particles as miniscule as 0.003microns. With a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 400m³/h, the air purifier is able to purify a room of up to 104m² with a noise level of noise level 30–65 decibels.
Especially interesting is its use of smart sensing technology to detect indoor pollutants in real time and remove them. Philips AeraSense technology continuously monitors the air and is able to purify air in a room of 20m² in less than eight minutes.
The air purifier contains a smart filter status indicator, which enables easy scanning of pollutant levels via a numerical display and a colour ring on the dashboard of the air purifier. The colour ring provides an additional visual cue, ranging from blue (good pollution and particle level) to red (bad pollution and particle level). It is accompanied by an app that allows you to track and control the air quality in your home.
$549; available at Philips e-store and all Philips authorised retailers
AirFree P Series
Weighing just 1.09kg, the AirFree P Series is compact and mobile. This made-in-Portugal air purifier doesn’t work with a filter. Instead, it is fitted with a patented Thermodynamic TSS™ Technology that inactivates airborne bugs at a heat level of 200°C.
It is perfect for those looking for a maintenance-free air purifier as it does away with the need to clean or replace filters. Additionally, the purifier consumes relatively little energy — about 50W per hour — which translates into a saving on your electricity bill.
If you are one of those who needs complete silence while sleeping, this purifier will suit you. On top of that, you can even dim the lights to your desired brightness with the mere touch of a button.

Dyson Pure Cool Purifying Tower Fan
The Dyson Pure Cool Purifying Tower Fan is equipped with a 360° glass HEPA filter and an activated carbon filter. Its HEPA filter purportedly captures 99.95% of allergens and ultra-fine particles such as pollen, mould spores and pet dander, before circulating purified air around the room.
There’s a night mode that runs the fan on a quieter setting, and a timer that you can switch off after certain intervals between 30 minutes and eight hours. The accompanying app allows you to track your home’s air quality and tweak your settings remotely.
It also doubles up as a bladeless fan, which saves space, and makes it a justifiable splurge.
