To ensure that there are no invisible pesky airborne particles in your humble abode, here are some air purifiers in Singapore you can check out for breezy-fresh sterile air. 

All the purifiers below come with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, which is reputed to be able to trap airborne viruses.

Most air purifiers sieve out air particles with a filter, but the AirFree P series is an air steriliser which doesn’t. Made all the way in Portugal, these tiny appliances are built with the patented Thermodynamic TSS™ Technology that destroys airborne viruses and microorganisms at a heat level of 200°C, thus ensuring 99.99% efficiency in “cleaning” the air of icky particles.

This filterless air steriliser is great for those who want something maintenance-free as you won’t have to deal with the hassle of cleaning or purchasing new filters every so often. Additionally, the AirFree consumes very little energy – about 50W per hour – so you can safely let it chug away throughout the night without fear of it overheating or wreaking havoc on your electricity bill.

In addition, the AirFree P works in complete silence, perfect for white-noise haters at bedtime. To set the right ambiance for sleep, you can even dim the lights to your desired brightness with a simple touch.

If you’re looking for an air purifier for your little kiddo’s room, you can also consider the AirFree Babyair model, which comes with a stars and moon light projection in three colours – blue, green and red.

The haze season often leaves us with an ominous grey sky and dark clouds over our heads – but what’s even more worrying, is the number of invisible pollutants lurking in the air in our own homes. Worrywarts can keep track of the level of pollutants in the air with the Filtech Aero Air Purifier which has different colours to denote varying levels of detected pollution.

Pollution levels are detected actively by a high-precision laser – which, on Auto mode, upon detecting a shift, instantly signals to the purifier to switch gears according to the degree of air pollution. Simply let the purifier do its thing and watch in satisfaction as the colours change from red to green.

The air is also channelled through their ultra-fine AEROTECH™ HEPA filter, which has a filtration capability of 99.98% for allergens, bacteria, virus and pollutants so you can rest assured nasties in the air are removed.

4. TruSens air purifier – Wide air circulation range with UVC-light


When you invest money in an air purifier, you don’t always want to stick close to it just to get a breath of fresh air. 

Instead of shooting air straight out like normal purifiers do, which might leave stagnant spots in your room with little air circulation, the TruSens Air Purifier takes it up a notch. It splits the air into two streams with PureDirect dual airflow technology. This ensures that clean air is not just a luxury enjoyed by those in the direct trajectory of the vertical airflow.

For those keen on knowing the exact pollutants in the air around you, you’re in luck, too. The purifier comes with a separate sensor that captures all that data, even if you place the latter all the way across the room.

The sensor will get to work measuring pollutants like ultrafine particles, smoke, paint fumes and even bacteria and viruses – a boon in today’s climate. Then, it’ll transmit the results right back to the purifier so that you can monitor air quality through a colour-coded display, or have settings be adjusted automatically.

All purifiers come with a standard HEPA filter, which includes 360-degree filters that take in pollutants from all directions, plus self-sterilisation with UV light. You can also, however, customise your purifier to your needs with their array of high-performance specialty filters.

The Allergy & Flu filter ensures even airborne viruses like H1N1 can’t escape the clutches of the purifier. Alternatively, the Odour & VOC filter would be perfect if you can’t stand greasy cooking odours. Pet owners who love their fur-baby to bits but are not fans of the fur they shed can also consider the Pet filter to rid your homes of unwanted smells or allergens.

Those with bigger rooms (BTO 4-rooms and larger) can opt for the Z-3000 models which cover up to 70 square metres, while those on a budget can consider the Z-2000 and Z-1000 ranges.

Price: from $188
