Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure Air Purifier Quick Review

The "shortest" tower air purifier in Whirlpool series, Whirlpool Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure is the "mini" version of Whirlpool APT40010R tower air purifier that has similar features except it comes in a smaller package, literally. Essentially still a HEPA air purifier with the capabilities in capturing microscopic airborne particles,  can the weaker performance Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure be the perfect model for someone that needs a highly portable unit with very little space to spare?

Seldom do we call a tower air purifier short, but Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure really is. At almost half of its brother Whirlpool APT40010R height, you could easily carry this air purifier around by grabbing on the whole unit or holding on to the built-in handle. Similar to its series, this plastic constructed unit has air intake/ outtake surrounding the air purifier and a donut-like electronic controls with display screen in the middle. Front cover is slightly difficult to open as the opening is small due to the smaller filter, nevertheless it is still a pretty reliable air purifier with solid build quality on par with other Whirlpool air purifiers.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

Let’s be realistic, the tiny size of Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure is definitely the biggest contributor to the weak purifying. With a limited applicable area of 7 m2 (80 sq. ft.), it is pretty much a desktop air purifier where you have to place next to the intended target. With smaller filters, Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure CADR is on the low side too; at a dust free air delivery rate of 76 cfm, pollen free air delivery rate of 70 cfm and smoke free air delivery rate of 51 cfm. For a energy-star qualified unit, power input is at an average of 60 watts hourly.

Final thoughts on Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure

Very affordable, extremely portable, simple to use and easily maintainable, Whirlpool APMT2001M Whispure is the air purifier that has it all except for the weak airflow performance. If you are in a hunt for a powerful air purifying unit with wide coverage or a strong filtration against gas and odor, this is not the model for you.
