Samsung has rolled out a new air purifier range as people spend more time indoors than ever before with indoor air quality up to five times more polluted than outside air due to gases, dust, chemicals, bacteria and other odours.
Featuring industry-leading technology and modern design, the new range includes four models starting from RRP $449 for various room sizes with a fifth model to be launched in November, exclusive to Samsung.com, at the top end of the range retailing for $1,299.
The air purifiers use a comprehensive detection system with advanced sensors and a display that shows information about current indoor air quality conditions. The 4-colour indicator display changes in real-time while dust and gas laser sensors automatically monitor and adjust fan speeds.
Whisper Quiet Sleep Mode switches the display lights off, operates with a softer air flow and the noise level is only 20dBA.
Other key features include concealed wheels to easily move the air purifier from room to room, notification of filter replacement, a timer to pre-schedule activity to minimise energy consumption and child lock to prevent accidental changes in settings.
Select models (AX7500 and AX5500) are Wi-Fi enabled for users to monitor and control air quality using the SmartThings app. Alternatively, voice command using Bixby allows users to turn the unit on or off, check the air quality and control functions.
The AX7500 and AX5500, designed for larger rooms, use three-way airflow and dual power fan.
The washable pre-filter is designed to capture larger dust particles like pollen and pet dander, while the activated carbon deodorisation filter captures harmful gases and unpleasant odours like cooking odours and household cleaners and the true HEPA filter captures up to 99.97% of ultra-fine dust including smoke, mould and exhaust fumes. The dual power fan then distributes the purified air through the three-way air holes on the top, right and left.
Samsung Electronics Australia head of consumer electronics, Jeremy Senior said air purifiers are designed to make air in the home as pure and healthy as possible.
“Australians are conscious of the air we breathe and at Samsung we are committed to bringing meaningful innovation into homes that help make our lives easier, which is especially true of air purifiers as we approach hay fever season,” he said.
