No matter the season, impure air is always a problem. Whether it’s allergens, bacteria, or even odour, you can always tell when something’s not right. Opening a window may help with those unpleasant odours in your home, but that option is really only ideal when it’s not a winter wonderland outside- not to mention opening a window can bring more allergens into the house. With new technologies coming at us every other day, shopping for a air purifier to help clean the air around you can be overwhelming… that’s why we put one of them to the test.

The new Philips Air Purifier Series 2000i is built to detect any impurities in the air and eliminate them, leaving your house feeling and smelling cleaner than ever. Is it magic? No, it’s technology. Here’s how it works:

Features:
– A multi-stage active filtration system, which captures 99.97% of airborne particles and passes it through a filter sized at 0.3 microns (the size of most allergens, particles and bacteria).
– AeraSense technology has sensors that detect even the slightest change in air conditions, and automatically adjusts fan speed to purify air.
– 3 auto modes: general, allergen and bacteria.
– 5 manual settings, including a quiet setting for night time.
– Shows air quality through a numerical display and a changing colour ring on the dashboard.

Results:
We tried out the 2000i at home and actually noticed a difference within days. Allergies can get intense, especially in a household with pets, but this air purifier helped with the overall quality of the air and when you remove the bacteria and allergens floating around you automatically ensure a more comfortable living space. Plus, the AC 2889/40 model that we tried out was particularly handy thanks to an easy-to-use app that had us controlling air output from anywhere around the house.

Verdict:
The Philips Air Purifier Series 2000i gets our recommendation for any home, or small office space. It’s especially ideal for people with troublesome seasonal allergies, households with pets, or the homes of your run-of-the-mill clean freaks who’ll sleep better at night not worrying about the quality of the air around them.
