AD 1000 3-stage filtration system:

  • Pre-filter for larger contaminants like dust and animal hair; can be vacuumed or hand-washed to be reused.
  • Carbon/Gas Trap/VOC filter that combines two types of media – activated carbon (280 grams (0.6 lbs)) to remove odors and gases (e.g., smoke) and potassium permanganate to deactivate certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde; filter replacement – every 6 months.
  • UltraHEPA filter that removes 100% of airborne particles at 0.003 microns (to compare, HEPA filters (like in Austin Air purifiers) remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns and 95% of particles 0.1 microns and larger); filter replacement – every 6 months.

The unit should be effective at filtering ultrafine particles such as mycotoxins and viruses (e.g., COVID-19). It also captures mold spores but does not eliminate mold (to eliminate mold, its sources should be professionally remediated). The WhisperJet fan is potentially 30% quieter than the fans in air purifiers by other brands. Return policy: 30-day full refund.

The California Air Resources Board categorizes Air Doctor 1000 as an “electronic” air cleaner meaning that it may be capable of generating small amounts of potentially harmful ozone. But it has been tested and found to produce an ozone emission concentration of less than 0.05 parts per million. The ionizing setting can be turned on and turned off.
