Premium and classic design at its best, Blueair 605 retain its timeless console design and galvanized steel built up that feels more premium than other. The 20 x 26 x 13 in (50.8 x 66 x 33 cm) dimension and 35 lb (15.9 kg) weight is certainly not compact where you could squeeze it in a tight corner. Good thing is Blueair 605 comes standard with 2 side handles and casters to ease its mobility. Unlike most petroleum-based plastic air purifier that will unavoidably off-gas at some point, the powder-coated finish exterior guarantees no toxin will be released out. As an added bonus point, Blueair 605 is also eco-friendly with 100% recyclable parts.
Moving on to controls and usability, other than using your smartphone as a remote control, the top touch buttons panel is big and clear where you can control the speed, connect via Wi-Fi and filter status update. Each buttons have LED icon that will update to current mode the air purifier is in. For example, the fan speed button will display complete grey if there is no power source, outer circle blue with all bars are grey when power cable is plugged in, 1 blue bar at minimum speed, 2 blue bars at medium speed and 3 blue bars at maximum speed. Same goes with Wi-Fi button where complete grey if there is no Wi-Fi, blinking if is ready to connect and blue if is Wi-Fi connected. As for the filter button, color will be shown grey + blue when no replacement filter is currently required and change to orange when filter is required replacing (hold the button for 5 seconds to reset the status).
Rounding up Blueair 605 notable features include a 3-stage filtration with 3 speed, HEPASilent Technology, smartphone control (see below), easy one minute filter replacement with no screws, hooks or tools needed, built-in casters, filter replacement indicator, zero ozone emission (reduce ozone in fact), CARB certified, Energy Star rated and 5 years warranty.
Blueair Friend appBlueair 605 is Wi-Fi supported thus you could fully utilize the excellent Blueair Friend app via the comfort of your bed. By adding your air purifier into the Blueair Friend app list, what you can do beyond the physical buttons is remotely adjusting the 3 airflow speed, LED display intensity, timer, activate child lock, night mode and finally schedule speed/ LED at specific hours and days. You could also access real time outdoor air quality data in most major urban areas and few other miscellaneous logs. For “I” series models that comes with built-in sensors or the added optional Blueair Aware monitor, you could enable Auto mode to let the air purifier change speed autonomously, monitor and keep track room air quality based on your various indoor activities.
Airflow, CADR and everything in between
What’s inside count
^ Blueair 605 filters/ technologies/ lifespanLike all Blueair Classic air purifier, Blueair 605 is powered by HEPASilent Technology that combines the effort between electrostatic and mechanical filtration resulting an effective rate of 99.97% of airborne particles capturing down to 0.1 micron in size. When airborne pollutants flown inside the air purifier via the motor fan, the encapsulated particle-charging chamber or simply ionizer will electrically charge the pollutants before passing through to the filter media. Fine airborne pollutants like mold, pollen and bacteria that are charged would adhere more to the particle filter therefore the filter will have an easy task in capturing them. Same goes with the SmokeStop Active Carbon filter that have a better efficiency rate in dealing with charged tobacco smoke, VOCs, odor and other smoke/ gas based particles. All Blueair filters are ultrasonically bonded and made with waterproof, natural antibacterial polypropylene fibers instead of using chemical-based bacteriostats/ mold inhibitors to prevent bacteria and mold growth. The low dense, gradient structure filter design also prevent particle of all sizes from re-releasing out even if the filter is under heavy load. Last but not least, Blueair 605 also help reduce its surrounding ozone level as the air released from the purifier has less ozone concentration than the level in the air.
