The Whirlpool Whispure air purifier has earned an excellent reputation, protecting against pet dander, ragweed, mold, dust mites, pollen and more. It can filter out just about any allergen in your homes air. It is especially good for asthma sufferers since it’s 3 stage filtration system does not include any method that releases ozone or other lung irritants. It is much more efficient than the less expensive compact models that I have reviewed. This is primarily due to it’s filtration system.
The filters in the Whispure air purifier include a pre-filter to catch larger particles, a carbon filter which catches odors, and the true HEPA filter. The HEPA filter is capable of removing 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 microns or larger from the air in your home. The carbon filter is perfect for general household odors such as pet odors, smoke, or food odors after cooking. It also protects the life of the HEPA filter by removing larger particles missed by the pre-filter on the outside grill of the air purifier.
What Room Size Can The Whirlpool Whispure Air Purifier Handle?
The Whirlpool Whispure air purifier is able to handle rooms as large as 500 sq feet in size and it is able to filter the air in a room this size 4.8 times per hour. If the room you place this in is smaller than 500 sq feet then you will get a greater air exchange rate than the 4.8 times per hour and will notice a significant difference in it’s cleaning capacity. This measurement is dependant on the air purifier being set on the highest of it’s 4 fan speeds. There is also a sleep mode and turbo mode that you can set the Whispure air purifier to.

The sleep mode is quite unique since most air purifiers do not have such a feature. It allows you to program a schedule for the Whirlpool Whispure HEPA air purifier. This way you can have it turn down to a lower and quieter setting during certain hours and then automatically turn back up and the desired time so you never have to worry about forgetting to change the settings. For those that work outside the home this is a great setting because you can set it to the max setting so it can be cleaning your air while you are away and then continue at a lower setting so that the sound is not distracting during the hours you are home.
How Big is the Whispure Air?
One other thing to consider about this unit is it’s size. It can take up a bit of space in a room and, weighing in at 23.8 pounds it is not always easily moved. However, due to the airflow design it can be situated against a wall. The air intake is through the front of the unit and the clean air is released through the top.
