The Blueair Classic 280i is designed to benefit allergy sufferers in small- to mid-sized rooms. It shares the same durable metal case, uses the same filters, and has nearly identical performance specs, with two notable additions: it comes with a DualProtection Filter which has an extra layer of carbon to remove gases and odors; second, it has an Automatic mode (which includes built-in air quality sensors) so the unit can turn its fan speed on higher or lower as needed for the air conditions in the room, to save you time, effort, and money.

Shipping included to most locations in Canada.

Product Notes:

Able to provide 5 full air changes per hour when purifying the air in an area up to 279 sq. ft. (26 m2), the Blueair Classic 280i is recommended for small bedroom or office use, where it can not only capture 99.97% of particles down to the 0.3 micron level, including notable allergens such as mold spores, dust, pollen, pet dander, and PM2.5 (fine particles under 2.5 microns in diameter), but also 99% of germs and viruses down the tiniest 0.1 micron level.

An upgraded version of Blueair's Classic 205 air purifier, the 280i actually comes with the 'beefed up' (or rather, 'carboned up') DualProtection filter, which can also trap appreciable amounts of a variety of other factors such as airborne chemicals, cooking odors, smoke, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

Thanks to Blueair's patented 3-Stage HEPASilent technology, which combines the best aspects of both electrostatic and mechanical filtration, it does all that very efficiently (only consuming about as much power as a light bulb) and quietly (so much so it was awarded a "Quiet Mark" designation by the Noise Abatement Society (NAS) as one of the quietest products in its category).

There are numerous ways of controlling this model.

The first is its digital touch-button control panel, located at the top of the slightly taller side of the unit, which has a flip-top cover to hide its LEDs when not in use, to give the device a cleaner, more elegant look.

This panel includes not only the main power and fan speed button, but also indicators for several other functions or readings (such as when it is time to replace the filter, and whether the particle or VOC readings in the room are at a slight to high level warranting a higher fan speed (in which case they glow orange) or at a moderate to excellent level (when they glow blue).

Second, the Classic models can also be controlled by most Wi-Fi enabled mobile devices (either smart phones or tablets) using a free Blueair Friend mobile app (which is available both for both Android and Apple devices), which can be used to activate the unit or change some of its functions on the fly either from across the room or elsewhere.

Third, it is Alexa compatible, so you can use an Amazon Alexa enabled device to control certain functions (such as altering the night mode schedule or LED brightness, or implementing the child lock, or setting it to AUTO mode) just with voice commands.

Finally, the beauty of the AUTO mode is you likely won't need to do anything more to control it on a day to day basis once you leave it at that setting.
