The Whirlpool® Whispure™ APT40010R True HEPA Tower Air Purifier gives fresh meaning to the old adage, "good things come in small packages." To start, the purifier's AHAM Certified¹ clean air delivery rate (CADR) assures the Whirlpool Whispure APT40010R delivers certifiably clean air in rooms up to 200 square feet, while its Energy Star® efficiency translates into more energy savings for you. Two (2) True HEPA filters do an excellent job filtering 99.97% of dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, fabric fibers, and other airborne particles to 0.3 microns. An activated charcoal pre-filter traps household odors and VOCs, and also captures larger particles before they reach the HEPA filters.

The APT40010R comes with a stylish and easy-to-operate control panel. Choose from 3 fan speeds (each illuminated by a green LED), or press AUTO, and the purifier automatically adjusts fan speed based on the quality of air detected by the unit's VOC sensor. You will notice the sensor's LED turn from green to amber when VOC gases are detected. Or press SLEEP MODE to set the fan speed to "Low" for 8 hours, and the unit will remember to restore your previous settings when it "wakes up." You can also press TIMER to set the purifier to run continuously for 8-18 hours before it automatically shuts off.

LEDs on the control panel turn red to alert you when it's time to replace the filters – one for the HEPA filters, the other for the pre-filter. Once replaced, just press the filter reset button(s) on the control panel to reset the HEPA or pre-filter timer. Under normal conditions, the pre-filter will need replacement every 3 months, and the HEPA filters once a year. Replacement filter costs run in the ballpark of $60 a year, or about 16 cents per day, which is quite low compared to similar True HEPA air cleaners.

The Whirlpool Whispure APT40010R runs very quietly on low and medium settings. Like all HEPA air purifiers, the unit is a bit louder on high, but Whirlpool's Whispure™ operation means it's only about half as loud as comparable brands. The APT40010R stands at 29" high (about table height) with a very small footprint, so can be non-intrusively placed without upsetting your décor or your lifestyle. Its built-in handle and lightweight design make for easy portability. Just plug it in, turn it on, and enjoy cleaner air, compliments of Whirlpool!  5-Year Mfr. Limited Warranty.

    Whirlpool Whispure™ APT40010R Tower Air Purifier Instructions

    Please see Owner's Manual tab for operating and care instructions, plus full instructions on changing the filters.

    General on Pre-Filter:

    • The pre-filter absorbs odors and captures large airborne particles that enter the air purifier. Therefore, regularly changing the pre-filter will keep your unit performing at its best, and preserve the life of the HEPA filter.

    General on HEPA Filters:

    • Remember that filter service life is related to the volume of air that passes through the purifier and the amount of contaminants in the air. If your indoor air has unusually high levels of airborne particulates or contaminants, the filter's service life may be shortened.

    • Regular maintenance helps to prolong the life of the HEPA filters. Keep the area surrounding the air purifier clean, and be sure to change the pre-filter approximately every 3 months.
    • Replace the HEPA filters if you notice a significant drop in air flow or if the filter media is excessively darkened.

    NOTE:   Do NOT immerse the pre-filter or HEPA filters in water ‐ they are NOT washable.
