One of the best home investments you can make right now, even in a post-pandemic world, is a high-quality air purifier. The air we breathe is something we ought to give more thought to, and having these high-tech gadgets around sure helps keeps our minds at ease. Acer brings us acerpure, a line of aesthetically-pleasing products that use new technologies that ensure best air quality, comfort, and energy efficiency for the entire family.
“Having air purifiers at home is no longer a luxury. Having cool and purified air at home and in the office is a necessity in these times. acerpure’s technologies assess air quality and improves it, so you always have air that’s cooler and cleaner,” said Sue Ong-Lim, General Manager at Acer Philippines.
The line consists of the acerpure cozy, acerpure pro, and acerpure cool—each specifically designed to make air in your home cleaner, cooler, so that it serves you better. The cozy boasts of 3D Airflow Technology, which gives it greater range and more concentrated airflow than a standard fan, for better indoor air circulation.
Both the acerpure pro and the acerpure cool have 4-in-1 HEPA filter that eliminates bacteria, allergens, and pollutants from your home and/or office so your air is healthier and fresher. This filter offers triple protection from unsafe air by removing pet hair and dander and 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, such as PM1.0, allergies, bacteria, formaldehyde, and odors.
The acerpure pro air purifier eliminates certain viruses and bacteria from the environment with HEPA Plus+. These include elimination of 99.99% bacteria, 99.9% anti-coronavirus (229E) 2 and influenza A (H1N1)3 virus activity. The acerpure cool on the other hand has the Ag⁺ Silver Coated Filter that helps eliminate bacteria and viruses. This filter underwent extensive third-party laboratory tests to certify its efficacy in eliminating bacteria and effectiveness against the activity of the H1N1 virus. Both pro and cool are supported by an app called acerpure Life, which detects the quality of indoor air, and sends automatic notifications of indoor and outdoor air pollution alerts.
acerpure is available in the following stores: Acer Flagship Store in SM Megamall, select Acer Concept Stores and Predator Concept Stores; Microvalley in SM North EDSA, and select Octagon and Abenson branches. Shop online here.
