ONE of the announcements that Taiwanese ICT giant Acer made in October 2020 was that it was going to launch a line of air purifiers for the home under a brand called acerpure. This made a lot of sense because at that time, most people in the world were staying at home for work and learning. Even now, around 90 percent of students in the Philippines are still literally getting an education at home. Most of us are home for 80 percent of the time so, yes, the quality of air that we breathe is very important considering that this persistent global health crisis is at its core a respiratory illness.
Acer has just launched acerpure in the Philippines starting with three products: acerpure cozy, acerpure pro and acerpure cool.
“The quality of air that we breathe affects the lives of people, especially these days when most of us are living our lives indoors. At Acer, we have expanded our product range by introducing new technologies and products that ensure the best air quality for everyone,” said Acer Philippines general manager Sue Ong-Lim.
The acerpure air purifiers are all in white and they’re beautifully designed. They aren’t very large, too, so they fit right into any room in your house.
acerpure cozy has the 3D Airflow Technology with a turbine blade fan and a spiral flow guard to create a powerful 3D airflow so the device has a greater and more concentrated range. The acerpure cozy projects air up to 15 meters away, completely circulating the air five times per hour so it reaches every corner of your home to deliver maximum comfort. It also has an energy-efficient DC motor, so the minimum airflow power consumption is just 1.18W for high-quality air circulation at low energy costs.
acerpure pro has the 4-in-1 HEPA filter for four-layer protection, a smart sensor and a negative ion generator to eliminate pollutants, germs, bacteria and other substances in the air that can harm us. The Air Quality and Gas Sensor regulates the purifier speed automatically and the LCD displays real-time air quality data.
acerpure pro eliminates up to 99 percent of airborne bacteria, 99.97 percent of ultrafine dust, PM1.0 and allergens.acerpure cool has a 4-in-1 HEPA filter, which includes pre-filter, activated carbon filter and HEPA 13 main filter. All these features help to remove fine particles and impurities in the air, including pet hair and dander, dust and 99.97 percent of 0.3µm suspended particles and bacteria. It also isolates harmful gases and removes odors. The Ag+ Silver Coated Filter in acerpure cool went through extensive third-party laboratory tests to certify its efficacy in eliminating bacteria and effectiveness against the activity of the H1N1 virus. This is to ensure that the acerpure cool minimizes users’ exposure to harmful bacteria and viruses.
acerpure cool improves indoor air quality by releasing negative ions to help remove harmful gases in the air such as formaldehyde and by capturing solid particles such as dust.
The devices produce low working noises, ensuring they don’t disturb your sleep. The displays can also be turned off to ensure your sleep isn’t disrupted. The air purifiers are all in white and are beautifully designed, so they fit right into any room.
acerpure pro and acerpure cool are supported by an app, called acerpure Life, which detects the indoor air quality, and sends automatic notifications of indoor and outdoor air pollution alerts. acerpure Life can control, monitor and start the air-purifying functions even when you are not home. You can download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
Acer is offering the three acerpure products at discounted prices at select Acer concept and online stores until December 31.
The acerpure cozy is priced at P4,499, the acerpure pro at P11,999, and the acerpure cool at P14,999.
