Having spent a decade living in Hong Kong, I’m rather conscious of air pollution. Even more so after having children. Although I now reside in Singapore, where the air is markedly cleaner, I still want the best from my air. And that was before the Covid crisis! This is where the Cosmo Prime Air Purifier comes in to play. This sleek bit of kit is equipped with medical grade HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) technology. Which means it can filter 99.7% of all air pollutants. I was lucky enough to be sent a Cosmo Prime for review and here are my honest thoughts…
Why do I need an air purifier?
There’s so much floating around that we don’t even think about including pollen, dust, mold, bacteria and smoke. It’s not until you actually turn on an air purifier in your apartment, than you can get a guage of how good the existing air quality is. The Cosmo Air Purifier will give you a reading about 30 seconds after power on.
Is it easy to install?
I’m allergic to instruction manuals but this one was pretty simple. I had the machine up and running in no time. I love the design and it is very easy to use.
The machine is not too heavy and there’s a convenient handle to allow you to move from room to room.
How does it work?
There’s a handy colour coding which reveals the air quality. As part of the preheating phase when you turn it on, the colours will sequence. Then it will decide the air quality. The air quality is represented in a colour, blue being good, yellow medium and red is bad.
This is displayed in the number of PM 2.5 particles that are present in the air. From here, you can decide your setting. I often leave it on timed for a few hours if the air quality is already good.
The purifier itself has a three step filtration system. Step 1 is a pre filter which intercepts larger particles aka hair. Step 2 is the H13 HEPA Filter which removes micron particles and blocks bacteria, pollen etc. Finally Step 3 is activated carbon. This neutralises odour in the air.
The Cosmo Prime Air Purifier has a coverage area of up to 80 m2.
Is it noisy?
Unlike whirring air purifiers I have owned in the past, this one is very quiet. If you have it on the high setting then it is a bit noisy but on 20dB which is the lowest fan setting, you’ll barely notice it. In fact, the sleep mode is very quiet.
Where can I get one?
The Cosmo is available for purchase for SGD $399 through airpurifiers.sg
