Technical specifications

Since it was built with practicality in mind, this air purifier comes with three speed options, as well as a Sleep mode and an Auto mode function that sets the fan speed based on the level of pollution in the air. It fights airborne contaminants using a charcoal pre-filter and a True HEPA filter, which work together to remove particles like dust, pollen, and dander and gaseous pollutants like smoke, odors, and VOCs.

Made for spaces that are up to 307 sq. ft. in area, this air purifier boasts clean air delivery rate (CADR) ratings for dust, pollen, and smoke of 198, 214, and 191, respectively. Its maximum noise output of 49 dB also means that it’s a good fit for noise-sensitive areas like bedrooms, offices, and study rooms.

Performance

The Whispure APR25530L’s charcoal pre-filter removes gasses and odors and pre-cleans the air before allowing it to reach the True HEPA filter. After most of the larger particles have been trapped by the pre-filter, the True HEPA layer then proceeds to rid the air of 99.97% of particles that are small as 0.3 microns. Also, unlike other models on the market that feature ionizers and ozone generators, it provides a completely-ozone-free performance. This also means, though, that this Whirlpool model takes a backseat in terms of effectiveness against airborne microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.

This air purifying system can cover spaces that measure up to 307 square feet. Its CADR ratings reveal that it does a respectable job of ridding the air of common particle pollutants, which makes it a highly-recommended device for asthma and allergy sufferers.

Features

Given the many user-friendly features of the APR25530L, it’s clear that convenience is one of its strongest suits. Aside from having three speed options that let you manually control the air purifier’s cleaning level, there’s also the Auto setting, which enables the device to run according to the current level of air pollution inside the room. For instance, if you have cats and you choose to place the air purifier near their litter boxes, the device will ramp up its operation when your pets are active in the room and slow down when the pollutants have been removed. It will only run when it detects impurities in the air, allowing you to save money on your energy bills. Moreover, both the HEPA filter and the charcoal pre-filter have a separate filter replacement indicator.

Another major bonus offered by this model is its remote control, which lets you change the air purifier’s settings from a distance. The Sleep mode, which minimizes the machine’s noise output, makes the Whispure APR25530L bedroom-friendly. It also has a timer that you can set for up to 18 hours, a handy feature especially when you’re headed out but want to make sure that you come home to a fresh-smelling home.

Design

Featuring a white plastic housing, this air purifier probably won’t clash with the aesthetics of your home, but it’s clear that it isn’t as modern-looking as other air purifiers that feature metallic finishes and muted air grills. On the flip side, it does have a rather stern look that communicates how it prioritizes ease of use and effectiveness over looking good, so if you enjoy intuitive controls, a large LCD display, and well-labeled electronic control buttons there’s no reason to believe this air purify won’t satisfy your needs. Lastly, this device also incorporates a built-in handle in its design, which enables easy transportation from one room to another.

Warranty and Support

The Whirlpool Whispure APR25530L comes with a 5-year warranty, which is considered above-average on the air purifier market. A warranty this long denotes that the manufacturer has a lot of confidence in the durability and reliability of the product. Moreover, since Whirlpool is a popular global brand, it’s also not surprising that they have well-established support channels for their customers.


Final Thoughts

The Whirlpool Whispure APR25530L is an option worth considering if you want to improve the quality of air inside your home. This model is designed to remove particles as small as 0.3 microns to protect your loved ones from asthma or allergy triggers. It appears to be a device that doesn’t sacrifice performance and user-friendliness despite the fact that it comes at a pretty reasonable price.
