Award-winning design Airfree P1000 Filterless is lightweight, compact and portable, unlike conventional air purifier size. At 8.4 x 10.4 x 8.4 in and 3.1 lb weight, you could easily move it around the house or places with high airborne contaminants. Covering the top of the air purifier is an adjustable “stress-free” night light that glows when the unit is turned on. Besides the built-in excellent Thermodynamic TSS Technology, that produces no ions/ ozone/ UV light (CARB certified), there are also passive safety features such as Thermistor safety sensors, thermal fuse, tilt sensor, varistor, and current limiting fuse. Other than that, you would not find any other practical features or controls on the air purifier.

Impressive 450 sq. ft. purifying coverage for such as small air purifier. The only downside is the slow airflow rate that would require some times to clear up surrounding airborne pollutants. There is no fan speed selector so Airfree P1000 air purifier is pretty much a plug and play unit. Dummy prove usability. Click on the above link to compare with other Airfree air purifiers.

What’s inside count

Airfree P1000's exclusive Patented Thermodynamic TSS technology works similarly as boiling water by using 400°F (200°C) heat to destroy microorganisms and allergens inside Airfree air outlet. On average 14,000 to 20,000 litres of air will pass through every hour, sterilized and cooled inside the device before being returned to the room. The entire purification process is eco-friendly and requires no maintenance, no filter change and all you have to do is switch on the unit and let it work its magic.

As mentioned earlier, Airfree P1000 air purifier does not use any fan during purification so expect a complete silent operation throughout the whole process. Perfect for night use and let it run in the background. Likewise power consumption is low and steady at only 33W. The air purifier will also goes into energy-saving mode by automatically shutting off the ceramic core when it has reached a temperature range. Running with 24x7 would not have a big impact your electricity bills.

^ Replacement filters/ estimated cost
As a printer, it's the recurring fees that would cost you instead of the machine. The base price is not the cheapest but in long-run it certainly is due to the filterless setup. There is no expiry date on the product so Airfree P1000 Filterless would last you at least couple of years without any recurring fees. If you need a lower/ higher purifying coverage or a cheaper base price, Airfree does offer that in its product lineup as well.

Airfree P1000 VS the challengers

Airfree P2000 Filterless Air Purifier

Airfree P2000

Higher purifying coverage but you will have to do with a slightly higher price and power consumption.
Airfree Iris 3000

Airfree Iris 3000

Black housing with customizable multi-color night light and higher purifying coverage. Price point is of course more expensive.

Final thoughts on Airfree P1000

There is a reason why many other air purifiers still rely on the standard HEPA filter to handle airborne pollutants and allergens. It is more effective than sterilizing method although the zero maintenance is very attractive for some. With that being said, Airfree P1000 Filterless can still eliminate common household pollutants though you will have to pay the price for the compactness and convenience you will get from the air purifier.
