The sleek Friedrich AP260 air purifier features five stages of filtration designed to protect your health by removing pollutants from the air you breathe. The AP260 captures and removes large airborne particles as well to the smallest of particulates such as bacteria and harmful gases. Friedrich's HEPA air purifier features a 5-stage filtration system, including a pre-filter, an antibacterial/ antifungal multi-filter, a HEPA filter, a carbon filter and a plasma generator. The plasma generator creates an ionized plasma field which sterilizes and disinfects airborne pollutants such as viruses, bacteria and odor but with no ozone emission. The AP260 also offers intelligent operation that automatically adjusts its cleaning level as it senses change in your air quality. This is nicely accented by a unique, easy-to-understand colored LED display that indicates the current air quality level in the room. The Friedrich AP260 effectively cleans the air in rooms ups to 260 square feet. Includes a convenient remote control.

Summary:This air purifier from Friedrich offers a lot of attractive features to customers looking for an effective air purifier for smaller areas. The AP260 quietly cleans the air in rooms up to 260 square feet, which means it is ideal for most bedrooms, office and smaller living areas. While this air purifier is feature rich, we believe that it will likely appeal to customers looking for a set it and forget air quality solution. And the Friedrich delivers about 90% of their needs but does lack a filter replacement indicator. This means that customers will have to know and monitor the filter replacement intervals. That aside, this is a great choice if your looking for good looks, quiet operation, automatic operation and impressive particle removal.
