“As we become more concerned about health and wellbeing, many people are also more conscious of the quality of the air that we breathe in,” said Johnson Seet, Acer Malaysia’s consumer business, product and marketing director
“Acer Malaysia brought in our first 2-in-1 Acerpure Cool that purifies and cools the air at the same time so that you and your loved ones can breathe cleaner air be it at home or in the office," he said.
"The Acerpure Cool continuously senses, assesses and improves air quality through its smart inbuilt technology,” he claimed.
The Acerpure Cool touts the ability to purify and circulate air around a room. At its core is a 3-in-1 HEPA filter, which consists of a pre-filter, activated carbon filter and HEPA 13 main filter. These work to remove fine particles and impurities in the air, including pet hair and dander, dust, as well as 99.97% of 0.3μm suspended particles and bacteria. Acer claimed.
Acer noted that it also works to isolate harmful gases and removes odours. The Ag+ Silver Coated Filter used in the device, Acer noted, went through extensive third-party laboratory tests to certify its efficacy in eliminating bacteriai and effectiveness against the activity of the H1N1 virus. This is to ensure that the Acerpure Cool minimises users’ exposure to harmful bacteria and viruses.
The Acerpure Cool is developed with homes, schools and workplaces in mind, adopting a simple design language with an LED touch panel and child safety locks. Via a PM1.0 air quality sensor, the unit supports real-time indoor air quality monitoring. The reading is displayed via three LED indicator lights of green, yellow and red.
Operation is also simplified – the air purifier mode can automatically adjust its operation to ensure better purification when poor air quality is detected. Acerpure Cool also claimed to release negative ions to help remove harmful gases in the air such as formaldehydeiii, and captures solid particles such as dust (PM2.5).
Acerpure Cool will be available at select Acer official online stores and Acer concept stores.
