In-depth Review of LG PuriCare 360 Degree Air Purifier:
The LG PuriCare 360-Degree Air Purifier is a two-part air purifier with two sets of filters and two independent motors. It also has a 3rd fan at the top as a booster which can tilt and rotate.
Here are the top features of the LG PuriCare 360-Degree dual filter air purifier.
Two sets of 3-in-1 filters
The LG PuriCare 360-Degree air purifier comes with a powerful filtration system. It has two sets of 3 stage filters, composed of a fine pre-filter, True HEPA filter, and deodorization filter. As the purifier’s main filter, the True HEPA filter traps 99.97% of airborne pollutants as small as 0.3 microns.
The pollutants include larger pollutants such as pet dander, pollen, mold spores, fine particles such as ultra-fine dust, smoke particles, and microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses.
After the True HEPA filter, we have the deodorizing activated carbon filter. It adsorbs VOCs and odors from pets and household activities.
The purifier has filter replacement indicators for both upper and lower filters. When the time comes to replace or clean the filter, a gentle tone will alert you. The filter lasts up to 12 months for normal usage.
Room coverage and noise
The LG PuriCare 360-Degree air purifier has a CADR of 330 cfm for Smoke, which can effectively clean up to 500 square feet five times in an hour. This makes it ideal for your large bedrooms and living room. Check out more room size recommendations from below.
To detect airborne pollutants in your home, the purifier has advanced air quality sensors. It has a fine dust sensor to detect particulate pollutants and a gas sensor for odorous pollutants. The fine dust sensor counts both smaller and larger pollutants (1 micron to 10 microns).
You can check the different particulates level from the control panel and mobile app. Also, it has an onboard air quality indicator LED. It changes color depending on the air quality in the room. If the sensors detect high levels of airborne pollutants in the room, it turns red. But if the air is clean, it turns green.
Besides its efficiency in cleaning the air, what we loved about the LG PuriCare Air Purifier is the whisper-quiet operation. The lowest sound level of the unit is 25 dB. This is slightly higher than rustling leaves (20 dB) but lower than a whisper (30 dB).
If you run the purifier all night, you’ll fall asleep fast and experience deep sleep all night. In the morning, you’ll wake up well-rested and ready for a new day.
You can control your LG PuriCare 360-Degree Air Purifier with the LG ThinQ app from your smartphone, tablet, or smart speaker. The purifier is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. As such, you can turn on/off the unit or adjust other key features using voice commands.
Another smart feature you’ll love is the Booster fan. It can tilt up to 55 degrees, rotate up to 70 degrees, and deliver clean air in all directions. In fact, it’s capable of delivering air up to 24 feet. Also, the lower part delivers the air towards the ground, where toddlers and infants love to play. This ensures the even distribution of pure air in the room.
The control panel is easy to navigate. On the panel, you have the following buttons – mode, fan speed, booster speed, swing, indicator, sleep timer, and power button. You don’t have to worry about your children changing the purifier’s settings accidentally.
The unit has a child lock function. Once you activate it, it disables the control panel. The controls become active when you disable the child lock function. The booster fan also houses a small screen that displays information such as air quality level, booster speed, and others.
Unique compact design
The LG PuriCare 360-Degree Air Purifier has a unique design that you won’t find with most air purifiers. White in color, the purifier has a clean design that makes your living space beautiful.
It has the following dimensions – 42.2 by 14.8 inches and weighs 42.2 pounds. As such, it’s portable and easy to move around. As a floor model, you can place it anywhere in the room as long as it’s a couple of inches from any obstacle.
Something interesting about the LG PuriCare 360-Degree Air Purifier is that it has a top and bottom intake and outlet. The purifier takes in unfiltered air through both intakes. It passes the air through the filtration system and distributes clean air via the Clean Booster and an outlet just above the base intake. This is how the purifier is capable of 360-degree air delivery, especially close to the ground.
The unit has no hidden wheels, but it’s easy to move from room to room.
