Design and build quality

From the first glance, you might not be able to tell the difference between the Blueair Classic ECO10 and its 500/ 600 series. In fact, most of them shares the same award-winning Swedish design and dimension. The entire structure of the air purifier is constructed from environmental friendly components e.g. galvanized steel. With the built-in 4 casters, you could easily slide the unit around while doing your routine house cleaning. The additional powder coating on its exterior is safe for allergies bound patients as there is absolute zero toxic or ozone released to the air. Inside the interior, other than Blueair Classic ECO10 air filter, there is a dynamic fan motor specifically developed to reduce drag thus increase the efficiency of the fan. Overall Blueair Classic ECO10 looks solid and sturdy.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

While there is no sacrifice needed on the exterior of the air purifier, the performance for Blueair Classic ECO10 will take some due to the low power consumption. At 28 m2 (301 ft2) applicable area, ECO10 by no means is a weak air purifier. Noise level is on par with its airflow delivery rate, at 40 dB minimum to 49 dB maximum. The power consumption is exceedingly good; at lowest setting it only uses 7 watts of electricity per hour and 10 watts of electricity at maximum setting. Approximately 10 times lesser than normal air purifiers at highest fan speed setting. Put it in a nutshell, Blueair Classic ECO10 is quiet with an above average performance and exceptional energy efficiency.
