Design and build quality

Boxy shaped design, the Whirlpool AP45030K might not have the aesthetics compared with Sharp air purifiers, it is still very practical and easy to use particularly on the huge manual knob with multiple controls located at the top. With 45.2 cm in width, 55.9 cm in height and 27.9 cm in depth, the Whirlpool AP45030K is large in size and slightly heavy too at 10.1 kg. Together with the large pre-filter and True HEPA-filter, the unit is sturdily fitted even though the plastic look might not fully depict its quality.

Final thoughts on Whirlpool AP45030K

Whirlpool Whispure AP45030K scored well in almost every segment. It has good airflow filtration, reliable quiet operation, easy to use features, filter change indicator and most importantly wide purifying coverage. Suffer the same fate as Whirlpool AP51030K, the exterior of Whirlpool AP45030K might not be that appealing (at least for me) and the weak odor/ gases filtration might turns out to be the biggest obstacle for some. If you can look-pass the 2 list that I mentioned, there should be plenty enough of reason to go with this air purifier.

In conclusion......

  • True HEPA-filter with 99.97% filtration rate.
  • Wide room coverage.
  • Silent operation in all 3 fan speeds.
  • Easy start-up and simple to use.
  • Built-in handles.
  • 5 years limited warranty.
  • The standard pre-filter does not has the capacity to handle heavy odor or gases. No stand-alone deodorization filter can be purchase either.
