BLUEAIR CLASSIC 605 - PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Intelligent air cleaning capabilities and remarkable room coverage make the Blueair Classic 605 air purifier the showcase model of the Blueair Classic line. Replacing the Blueair 603, the Blueair 605 is not only visually pleasing, but offers advanced functionality, proven effectiveness and years of dependable service. Able to completely exchange the air 4 times every hour in an 940 sq. ft. room, the Blueair Classic 605 is perfect for people seeking exceptional air cleaning for open concept or over-sized living spaces.

Precision Swedish engineering has made the new Blueair Classic 605 even more energy efficient, requiring a mere 15 watts of power on its lowest fan speed setting. The user interface has also been improved, with an updated digital display and touch-button control. However, the big news is that the Blueair 605 now has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, allowing you to remotely control the airflow speed, LED light, child lock and more via your smartphone. Just download the free Blueair Friend App and you're all set to control your air cleaning from the palm of your hand, whether you're at home or away.

The Blueair Classic 605 is also compatible with Blueair's new Aware Indoor Air Quality Monitor so you can take complete control of your indoor environment. On auto mode, if the Aware detects high levels of harmful PM2.5 particles or dangerous Volatile Organic Compounds such as formaldehyde in the air, it will automatically increase your Blueair 605 to high speed to quickly deal with the problem, and then return the unit to a lower operating speed once levels have returned to normal. Use of the Aware Air Quality Monitor is strictly optional, it is not necessary for the operation of the air purifier.

Blueair 605

While most high-capacity room air purifiers require a powerful fan to draw the air in and force it through the HEPA filtration system, the SurroundAir technology used in the Blueair Classic 605 air purifier attains peak performance without the accompanying noise of a powerful fan. This is accomplished by means of three separate filters with progressively smaller openings, and an internal electrostatic ionizer that negatively charges the incoming particles to ensure that they adhere effortlessly to the positively-charged filter material in the air purifier. The bottom line is that the Blueair 605 is able to achieve higher air flow rates, with lower power consumption and less noise than other brands of air purifiers, while still capturing a remarkable 99.97% of particles down to 0.1 microns (i.e., three times smaller than the particles handled by traditional medical-grade HEPA filters).

The Blueair Classic 605 air purifier is available in two versions. The Blueair 605 HEPASilent model is the best choice for those who only want to control particles (e.g., house and textile dust, pollen, pet dander, fungi/mould spores, dust mite by-products, fine ash, combustion particles, printer/photocopier emissions and other microscopic particulate matter). Those seeking added protection from hazardous chemicals, toxic gases and unpleasant odours should opt for the more advanced Blueair 605 GO SmokeStop model.

The Blueair 605 GO SmokeStop air purifier offers wide-spectrum chemical, gas and odour control, while still achieving the same outstanding level of particle collection as the Blueair 605 HEPASilent model. Featuring 4.0 lbs. of coconut shell activated carbon impregnated with magnesium dioxide and copper oxide, the Blueair 605 GO SmokeStop air purifier provides additional safeguards from tobacco and wood smoke toxins, carbon monoxide and other gaseous combustion byproducts, ethylene oxide, ozone and the harmful VOCs found in every home and workplace (e.g., formaldehyde, ammonia and benzene). We highly recommend the SmokeStop model if you plan to use the Blueair 605 with the Aware Air Quality Monitor in order to be able to adsorb VOCs when they are detected by the monitor.

Unlike conventional electrostatic air cleaners, Blueair Classic 605 air purifiers are completely safe for allergy and asthma sufferers because they release absolutely no ozone or ozone by-products into the air. In fact, the Blueair 605 has been shown to significantly reduce ozone concentrations in rooms where electronic devices (e.g., computers, printers, televisions) are being used.

Rather than using traditional glass and paper filters that are brittle and can splinter easily, Blueair Classic 605 filters are made of more flexible and resilient ultrasonically-bonded, non-woven polypropylene fibres. This material is non-toxic and naturally hydrophobic, inhibiting bacteria, virus and mould growth without the need for chemical additives or washes.

To maintain optimal air cleaning performance and ensure warranty coverage, the three filters in the Blueair Classic 605 air purifier must be replaced every 6 months. The Blueair Classic 605 will remind owners when it's time to change the filters via the built-in filter replacement indicator. The filters themselves can easily be replaced by lifting off the top grill of the Blueair 605, removing the old filters, sliding the new ones in and replacing the grill. Quick and simple!

Constructed of noise-muffling galvanized steel instead of resonating plastic, even the housing of the Blueair Classic 605 air purifier is designed with quietness in mind. On its lower fan speed settings, the Blueair 605 offers whisper-silent operation, with sound levels so low that you may wonder if your Blueair air purifier is actually on.

Energy Star qualified, the Blueair Classic 605 uses significantly less power than other units on the market, making it not only environmentally responsible, but economical to operate. Made in the US from recyclable materials of exceptional quality, Blueair 605 air purifiers are built to provide years of reliable service. A special powder-coated finish ensures that Blueair air purifiers produce no chemical off-gassing, and to protect the planet, Blueair filter media converts into harmless carbon dioxide and water as it decomposes.

With its sleek and contemporary good looks, the Blueair Classic 605 air purifier offers a quiet solution to your high-performance air cleaning needs. Designed for main floors and open concept living areas, the Blueair 605 is also an excellent choice for suite-style bedrooms, large basements, open office areas and spacious apartments or condos. The Classic 605 has wheels for easy maneuverability, and is a neutral off-white and dark grey colour to complement almost any décor.

BLUEAIR CLASSIC 605/603 - CUSTOMER REVIEWS (Includes reviews for the non Wi-Fi enabled model 603)

“The Blueair 605 GO SmokeStop air purifier arrived today, and after only a couple hours on medium, the basement smells amazingly fresh. Very impressed! No more musty dank basement smell. Can't thank you enough for your help in picking the best system for our needs.”
Daryle T, Delia, AB

“I think my husband is a convert since we got the Blueair 603 HEPASilent air purifier. A few days ago he said he can't believe he doesn't wake up coughing anymore (he has all his life). It was all I could do not to say "I told you so.”
Bonnie W, Ottawa, ON

“The Blueair 603 GO Smokestop air purifier I purchased from you works wonderfully. The Blueair is a 'must' for keeping down dust and smoke particles in my home during the winter season, and as an added bonus, during spring and summer allergy season.”
J. Smith, Magog, QC

“We bought a Blueair 603 air purifier from you last summer because my wife has asthma and is also allergic to numerous airborne substances. She really noticed a difference after the first day we had the air purifier in our home. During the daytime we keep the Blueair in our living room where it does a good job of clearing the air in the main living area. We move it into our bedroom in the evening and by the time we go to bed, that room is cleared. The Blueair 603 is quite easy to move around because it is on casters. During the daytime we run the fan at full speed and at night we turn it down a notch and the sound is almost inaudible. The Blueair 603 isn’t cheap, but it is built very well and it is the first air cleaning unit that really works for my wife, so it has been an excellent investment.”
G Friedel, Edmonton, AB.

“We purchased a Blueair 603 GO SmokeStop air purifier for our cottage and have it running near the wood stove - It works beautifully!”
Andrew and Kit, Lachine, QC

** An Important Word on Air Flow Rates and Room Coverage for the Blueair Classic 605 Air Purifier:

Many retailers and manufacturers overstate maximum room coverage figures by calculating them with air flow rates measured without filters installed (i.e., fan output) or with too low a number of air exchanges per hour to properly clean the room. Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers believes in stating the actual delivered air flow rates for the air purifiers we sell, as well as realistic room coverage figures calculated at effective air cleaning levels. Accordingly, we recommend that the Blueair 605 HEPASilent be used in rooms of up to 470 sq. ft. (for premium cleaning) or 940 sq. ft. (for general purpose filtration). The Blueair 605 GO SmokeStop should be used in rooms of up to 445 sq. ft. (for premium wide-spectrum cleaning) or 890 sq. ft. (for general purpose filtration).

Note that air purifier performance should not be judged by air flow rates and room maximums alone. Many features that make an air purifier more effective at cleaning the air actually reduce the air flow rate. For example, higher grade HEPA filters, well-sealed filtration systems and large amounts of carbon all increase air resistance and reduce delivered air flow rates.
