Philips’ latest 3000i and 2000 series air purifiers promise to give you a room full of clean air in just minutes

Philips’ latest 3000i and 2000 series air purifiers promise to give you a room full of clean air in just minutes

Health technology company Royal Philips has announced that its latest 3000i and 2000 air purifier series are now available in Singapore.

Sporting a cylindrical design with a grey top half and holes at the bottom, the 3000i (AC3033/30) and 2000 (AC2936/33) look somewhat like oversized speakers.

Both air purifiers tout the ability to remove up to 99.97% of allergens or particles as small as 0.003 microns with their integrated pre-filter, activated charcoal filter and HEPA filter combo.

To give you an idea, a PM2.5 mask is designed to filter airborne particulate matter measuring 2.5 microns (or 0.0025mm). So 0.003 microns is like 0.000003mm.

According to Philips, this system can also reduce the levels of H1N1 virus aerosols by 99.9%.

Usage-wise, both air purifiers feature an intelligent auto purification mode so you can pretty much leave them alone to work their magic. You can easily check filter status, monitor air quality and control the machine either through the top touch controls or via Philips’ Clean Home+ app.

If you want to enjoy clean air faster, the air purifiers also provide a Turbo mode. There’s a Sleep mode as well, which exchanges a bit of power for a quieter operation.

Whether you go for the 3000i or the 2000 depends on your room size. The 2000, with a CADR (clean air delivery rate) of 330m³/h, is good for up to an 85m² area; while the 400m³/h CADR-rated 3000i is effective up to 104m². The 2000 does lack the 3000i’s gas sensor/indicator and grey fabric cover but that sounds like reasonable tradeoffs for its lower price.

The Philips 3000i and 2000 series air purifiers are now out in stores, priced at S$689 and S$549 respectively.

The 2000 series (right) can do most of what the 3000i is capable of, so your decision should be based more on your room size or how much you want to spend. (Image: Philips.)
