Airgle (the “gle” in the company’s name stands for “great levels of efficiency”) is an Asian company with offices in the United States and elsewhere that was founded in 1999. The company claims that “what sets Airgle apart from others is our firm commitment to the research and development of new and innovative clean air technologies for the home and office.”
Airgle 750 Model & Technology
Consumers should know there is only one type of Airgle air purifier, the Airgle 750. This purifier demonstrates that Airgle really does mean what it says about technology and innovation. The Airgle 750 makes use of a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to remove particles from the air and an activated carbon filter to remove gasses, such as dangerous Volatile Organic Compounds, as well as unwanted odors. These are two of the most common methods of air filtration.
12 Total Filters Including 2 Washable
One thing that distinguishes Airgle from its competitors, however is that the purifier it manufactures, actually contains a whopping twelve filters, including “4 permanent and washable Pre-filters, 4 HEPA filters, 2 Activated carbon filters, 2 washable high airflow filters.” Though this might sound amazing, it’s doubtful whether so complicated a system is necessary; it does not, however, detract from the product’s effectiveness. Airgle claims that, in tests carried out by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, its product’s Clean Air Delivery Rate came in first place out of 159 different purifiers.
Airgle 750 Is Not Cheap
The Airgle 750 is large, heavy, and fairly expensive, not including annual replacements for the HEPA and activated carbon filters. The upside, on the other hand, is that it is very powerful and is effective even in large rooms. Indeed, this product was clearly intended for use in large areas only; anything else would be a waste. Therefore, those who are looking for small, portable purifiers will probably find the Airgle 750 to be overkill, and more economical brands are available for their purposes. However, for people who live in large homes with spacious rooms, Airgle is an option they might want to seriously consider.
The Airgle also comes with a number of bells and whistles, the utility of which vary. There is a timer that lasts for up to eight hours, and a remote control. It also has a light sensor, so that users can program it to turn down the fan speed when no one is in the room, or if the purifier is located in the bedroom, when it is time to go to sleep. The fan runs quietly on lower speeds, which are still powerful enough that users can generally forgo the highest setting under normal circumstances.
There is also an optional “aromatherapy” feature that adds scent to the room while the purifier is operating, though this seems like a superfluous and gimmicky add-on to an otherwise good product; if used, the fragrance cartridge needs to be replaced once a year.
