Read on to learn more about the Classic 605 and the innovative features it has to offer.
Overview and Features
The Classic 605 air purifier features the patented HEPAsilent filter, which offers top of the line air purification power using a mechanical filtration system combined with an electrostatic charge for a more efficient purification process.
But aside from the air purifier’s top of the line filtration system, it comes with some great extras including Wi-Fi operation, built-in timers, and much more.
The HEPAsilent technology is unlike traditional HEPA filtration systems. It features a unique design that promotes peak filtration while resisting clogs. The result is a more efficient and longer lasting filter.
The filter must be replaced every six months, just like a standard HEPA filter, the only difference here involves pet dander, hair, dust, and larger particles. With the average HEPA filter, you would need to change it out more frequently than every six months if you live in a multi-pet home. This is because pet hair is notorious for clogging HEPA filters. But that’s where the HEPAsilent filter shines. Thanks to its innovative design, you’ll get the most out of every filter since the HEPAsilent is essential clog-resistant.
The HEPAsilent filter also removes ozone from the air. This HEPA filter has undergone extensive testing to prove that it can, in fact, remove the ozone concentration from the air. Additionally, this filter is also in compliance with international ozone emission standards.
So, how can such a powerful air purifier offer a silent-running operation? This model’s fan features a total of three settings. The first setting is the lowest and is called the whisper-quiet setting. During use, the particles in the air will pass through the first chamber and will become electrically charged. This causes small and large charged particles to become stuck to the fibers in the filter, unable to escape.
This model features a certified clean air delivery rate of five hundred cubic feet per minute. This means the air purifier can easily purify five hundred cubic feet of space every minute.
Download the Blueair friend app to adjust the air purifier’s settings using your smartphone. The air purifier is also Alexa compatible.
Using the downloaded blueair friend app you can adjust the air purifier’s speed or set the timers. Located on the front of the air purifier you’ll find a bright LED light, which can also be turned up or down based on preference. When the air purifier is set to nighttime mode, the LED light will be switched off and the fan will be set to whisper-quiet mode.
This air purifier can be used in larger spaces up to seven hundred square feet.
Not only are the HEPA filters recyclable, but the clean air quality purifier itself is energy star rated.
This model is perfect for larger rooms in the home, however, competing models such as the BreatheSmart by Alen offer a much higher coverage area at eleven hundred square feet, while the 605 can only treat spaces up to seven hundred square feet. However, unlike the Alen air purifier, this model features highly customizable settings and a mobile app that allows you to adjust the fan’s speed, built-in timers, and lights, via your smartphone.
Its powerful HEPA particle filter is also said to trap more contaminants compared to traditional HEPA filters and offers a longer filter lifespan.
