Proudly Swedish-owned. The first thing you be greeted by Blueair Pure Purifying Fan wonderful minimalist exterior. At a small 19.2 inches in width, short 16.2 inches in height, and 14.6 inches in depth, the boxy, low center gravity design makes it possible to knock it over. Blue Pure Fan fits well on the floor but can be placed on a table depending on your preferences. There is a convenient wood feel handle that makes moving around the machine an effortless task. Upfront, you have a large air inlet that pulls dirty air in, passes through the fabric pre-filters, and distribute as clean air out. Unlike a standard fan, the pre-filter helps protect the fan blades from getting covered with dust and hair which could end up slowing the fan performance and is tricky to clean.

As for controls, Blueair Pure Fan dummy-proof, super easy to use with a one-button design. You can rotate to turn on/ off the device or cycle the 3 fan speeds via the big Blueair button. The built-in alert will remind you to change the filter when the time is up (usually around 6 months time).

On the whole, Blueair Pure Purifying Fan is very well-built, uses sustainable materials like galvanized steel and recyclable plastic that even exceeded industry standards. There’s a standard 1-year warranty that covers all parts and labor that can be officially extended to 5-years for extra peace of mind.

One of our favorite features of Blue Pure Fan air purifier is the patented fan technology that lowers room temperature with a gentle stream of airflow. The purified cool air circulation is distributed across a wide 90-degree angle without the need for oscillation. Through third-party testing, Blue Pure Fan is proven to be capable of removing 2.839μm of dust and 7.234µm of pollen particles in a 1,008 ft³ room based on AHAM AC-1-2019 standard. Great for all areas particularly bedroom, living room, office, baby room, and, playroom.

What’s inside count

Unlike a regular fan that distributes dirty air, the Blue Pure Fan will clean and cool your indoor air both at the same time. The onboard washable Blue Pure Fan particle filter will capture 99% of airborne dust, pollen, and other household allergens. Not exactly HEPA grade, but you can feel the gradual improvement in the indoor air quality with just 20 minutes of air circulation. Replacing the filter is also easy as you only need to unplug, press the release button, lift off the back frame, and swap the old filter with the new one. No need to turn the machine upside down just to take out the filter. The apparent thing missing is an activated carbon filter that would help greatly against smoke and odors.

So how much you need to pay for this Swedish inspired heritage? Around 200+ dollars inclusive of the Blue Pure Fan particle filter. While it is not the most expensive device in a household, keep in mind that you probably can get a cheaper deal with a standalone air purifier and fan. As for the filter replacement cost, the particle filter set will set you back around 25 dollars every 6 months or 50 dollars annually. Very reasonable for Blueair standard.
There are plenty of places you can get your hands on a Blue Pure Fan air purifier. Our number one spot is definitely Amazon as it comes with the lowest price, bundled purchase, free shipping, and 30 days return policy. If you don't mind going through the hassle of creating a new account, Blueair official website is also a good place to go. It has good discounts plus Blueair Filter Club loyalty program that reduces the filter cost up to 15% with an annual subscription.
