The Electrolux EL500AZ Oxygen Ultra Air Cleaner is one of the air purifiers currently on the market that is equally tough on both dust and odors that make you uncomfortable in your house. With a design reminiscent of the vintage radiators, this one can sit snugly in a corner of your bedroom, living room or even in your office and quietly get rid of all the airborne particles. This machine is one of the high-end ones but is definitely worth every penny as it is very effective and stylish too. Moreover, it has one of the lowest maintenance costs. Interested? Read on then.
On first looks, the design is pretty impressive and eye catchy. The inlets are only subtly noticeable to the eye as they are tucked away under the folds of the machine, which give a greater volume of air intake. On running the machine, it becomes evident that the level of noise is very low. The machine is no more audible than a whisper at its lowest power settings and yet it is able to maintain the quality of air in a clean room. The power is adjustable on five different levels and at the highest power, it makes a buzz or a roar type of noise but the good part here is that you don’t have to keep it at that setting for too long. Set it for a couple of minutes to a half hour and any average bedroom will be cleaned entirely of the lurking dust particles.
The Electrolux EL500AZ has a unique cleaning procedure that renders the air coming out of it free of most dust and microbes. As opposed to the regular machines that have a three-stage filter, this one has five filters out of which four are carbon filters and the last is the HEPA filter. The carbon filters progressively filter the dust and the HEPA is great for removing the invisible bacteria and the like. All of them can be cleaned but the carbon filters will need to be replaced whenever necessary, especially if the machine is to be used in a dusty environment.
This machine is suitable for use in rooms as large as 400 sq.ft. That means if you are using it even in a large bedroom, it doesn’t need to be set at high power rating, thereby minimizing the cost of operation. Moreover, there are sensors operating in the machine that read the odor level and adjust the machine automatically to ensure that power is used in the most efficient way but all the odors are removed. This auto setting is perfect and it costs less than a dollar a day if the machine is operated in the automatic mode. Moreover, the ionizer is also effectively used to make the particulate matter as small as possible before cleaning it so as to best get rid of it.
This machine is as close to perfect as you can get and there are hardly any downsides to it. Nearly all the users who bought this machine have found that it exceeded their expectations and there are no complaints regarding the quality of air it produces. The only area of improvement is for the noise level at the highest power setting to be lowered to a comfortable level. Currently, the machine makes a bit of a noise at that power. Electrolux seems to be quite confident about this machine as it offers a great warranty scheme on it. This machine is well worth every penny you invest in it.
