Design and build quality

Not the best looking design in the market, Whirlpool APR25530L is constructed with white plastic with air vent surrounding the air purifier. While many might consider Whirlpool APR25530L as a compact air purifier, at a size of 35.6 (W) x 57.2 (H) x 26.2 (D) cm, we will have to disagree with them. At only 4.5 kg in total weight, you could easily move the Whirlpool Whispure air purifier around with the built-in handle. On top of the open-able front cover is the multiple function electronic control that you can adjust the on/ off setting, fan speeds mode and a 18 hours timer. With the compliments of a digital screen, Whirlpool APR25530L is undoubtedly an easy, maintainable air purifier.

In conclusion......

  • Dust Particle/ VOC-SENSE sensor.
  • Remote Control for further comfort.
  • Filters change indicator for both filters.
