Purifans Ceiling Fan Air Purifiers are a case of a great idea with a not-so-great design. We like the idea of circulating purified air in a ceiling mounted form factor with the addition of lighting options, but the less than stellar decor-unfriendly design has us hoping Purifan hires a new industrial designer to blow away the spare tire look for something more eye-pleasing.
The $390 Purifan utilizes a 5-stage filter; a paper media particle filters captures particles, while an activated charcoal medium remove odors. Rated at 2,200 CFM, the unit uses a modest 60 watts during operation, with $47.50 filters needing replacement every 9-12 months, depending upon how dirty your interior air is.
A lifetime warranty covers your air purifier during its lifetime, while different additional filter packs specific for removing smoking odours or allergens can be purchased at the Purifan site. Improve the aesthetics and we think Purifan might have a winner here.
