Philips Air Performer 2-in-1 uses AI to smartly purify air in your home

Philips Air Performer 2-in-1 fan & air purifier

Multi-function air purifiers already exist on the market, but according to Philips, its Air Performer 2-in-1 is the first in the world to use AI technology to automatically clean and cool air.

Among the latest air purifying products on the market, the Air Performer uses a three-layer high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to clean air in your home. Philips’ third-party lab testing found that the filter eliminates 99.97% of all particles too small for us to see, as small as 0.003 microns. These particles include bacteria, pollen, dust, and other common house pollutants like pet dander.

More than just an air filter, the Air Performer also functions as a bladeless fan that can rotate 350 degrees to cover a wide area. It has various fan speeds and modes to choose from, including a sleep mode to quietly purify and cool the air in your bedroom. Not just for smaller rooms, the device also covers spaces of up to 70m2.

Designed to connect with your smartphone, the Air Performer enables Wi-Fi connectivity using the Philips Air+ app. Here, you can control the fan from anywhere in your house and adjust settings as needed. Most helpful, the Air+ app gives you air quality updates and sends notifications if the quality drops below a designated point. In addition to measuring and displaying air quality in particulate matter below 2.5 micrometres (PM2.5), the Air Performer also displays temperature and humidity levels to help you keep comfortable in the home.

Philips Air Performer 2-in-1 Purifier & Fan availability and price

Out now, the Philips Air Performer 2-in-1 Purifier & Fan is available through major retailers including Bing Lee, David Jones, and Myer. Although it has an RRP of $799, some retailers have it listed for cheaper.

Other air purifiers include some of Xiaomi’s recent Smartmi and Jya devices. Arguably one of the more like-for-like products is the similarly designed bladeless Dyson air purifier. GadgetGuy is currently testing the latest Philips device and will have a full review soon. Air quality is an important factor to your health, so we’re keen to see how it tackles common household pollutants.
