Purification Performance

In order to test the purification performance of the AirDoctor 2000, we placed it in a medium sized room in our office. Before turning the air purifier on, we took a baseline measurement of the air quality and then set the AD2000 to max power.

After letting it run for 1 hour, we take another measurement of the air quality and compare it to the baseline data.

The essence of any air purifier’s worth lies in its ability to improve air quality. Here’s where the AirDoctor 2000 truly shines:

Starting Baseline

PM2.5: 0.9

PM10: 1.6

Particles: 189

AQI: 3

After 1 hour

PM2.5: 0.1
PM10: 0.1
Particles: 34

AQI: 1

During the 1-hour test, the AirDoctor 2000 impressively improved PM2.5 air quality by 88.9% and effectively removed 82% of airborne particulates.

To get these measurements, we used the Temtop LKC-1000S+ professional air quality detector. This device gives us precise readings for our baseline and post-test data.
Below we’ve included information on our testing criteria and what defines good vs. bad air quality. Simply put, the lower the number the better.

The Filters

Inside the AirDoctor 2000 is a 4-stage filtration system including:

  1. Pre-filter: Capturing larger airborne particles like dirt and hair.
  2. Activated carbon filter: Eradicating odors and VOCs, leaving a breath of fresh air.
  3. HEPA filter: Skillfully capturing particles as small as 0.003 microns, ensuring comprehensive purification.
  4. Optional negative ion generator: Binding negative ions to airborne particles, causing them to adhere to surfaces for later cleaning.

 

Noise Test

To test the noise levels of the AirDoctor 2000, we use a noise meter from about 3’ away and run the air purifier on each power setting.

In our rigorous purification tests, the AirDoctor 2000 displayed a remarkable range of decibel levels

Low

26.8 dB

Medium

31.3 dB

High

39.7 dB

Turbo

51.4 dB

We measured a noise range of 26 – 54 dB for the AirDoctor 2000. If you are concerned about noise while you sleep, the lowest power setting should be sufficiently quiet.
