Philips 2000 series 3-in-1 purifier, fan and heater AMF220 review: Did this all-rounder blow us away?

Published on The Independent on 6th December 2021

Many of us turn to air purifiers during the summer months, as they can help alleviate allergy symptoms by removing pollen from the air in our homes. And given that they produce a cool breeze as they cleanse the air, they can also double up as a fan in hot weather.

In winter, these devices can be equally helpful, especially for those with asthma, as pollution levels are often higher when it’s cold.

This is because in cooler months, we are more likely to experience incidences of temperature inversion – this is basically when a layer of warm air covers the cooler air below like a blanket. When temperature inversion happens, all the pollutants that would normally get blown away by the wind would become trapped until it rains or snows. This in turn reduces air quality both outside and inside our homes.

BlueAir blue 3210 review: A whisper-quiet air purifier on a budget

Published on The Independent on 7th October 2021

BlueAir is one of the market leaders when it comes to air purifiers, and it specialises in devices for huge offices as well as small bedrooms.

For consumers, the brand’s ethos is applaudable. Its whisper-quiet products for the home are designed to be super effective while being extremely energy efficient at the same time. And, as well as making products that have a low impact on the environment, the brand also uses its profits to help make clean air available to children around the world.

The blue 3210 purifier, launched in March 2021, is one of the brand’s most affordable and compact devices to date. Weighing in at a mere 1.68kg, it’s light enough to be moved around using just one hand, while also being powerful enough to remove the smallest particles from the air. In fact, based on independent testing, it can remove any pollen, dust and most bacteria and viruses from the air in a 12sq m room in just 12.5 minutes.
