LG PuriCare 360° (model AS560DWR0) joins the portfolio of LG appliances certified asthma & allergy friendly® by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) – including air purifiers, washing machines and clothing care systems – helping to improve indoor air quality throughout the home. Each certified LG product has undergone rigorous scientific testing to ensure it is more suitable for people with asthma and allergies.
"Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than the outdoor environment. The certified LG air purifiers are tested to our strict standards and proven to help create a healthier and cleaner home," said Michele Cassalia, director of marketing for the asthma & allergy friendly certification program. "LG is the first to offer families certified solutions in the laundry room. LG offers a line of products that help families to create a healthier indoor environment."
The LG PuriCare 360° features a unique purification method that promotes 360 degrees of clean air delivery, including areas low to the floor where infants and toddlers are. To assure more even distribution to these areas, LG designed the Clean Booster feature, which delivers clean air up to 24 feet farther than before, covering rooms up to 512 square feet. The air purifier tilts up to 55 degrees and rotates up to 70 degrees to distribute air all while operating at whisper-quiet (as low as 25dB) sounds thanks to LG LoDecibel technology.
True HEPA Filters
The PuriCare 360°'s unique multi-filter system captures six different types of particles including the peskiest indoor allergens to deliver purer, cleaner air. Its True HEPA filtration system traps 99.97 percent of ultra-fine dust and only needs two filters compared to other industry leading air purifiers that require three. In addition to capturing allergens, the deodorization filter removes odors like food and smoke, smog and harmful airborne chemicals.
Smarter Air Quality
Why wait to enjoy the comfort of cleaner, fresher air at home when you can adjust key features of the LG PuriCare 360° Air Purifier from anywhere, at any time using the LG SmartThinQ™ app? Users also can make clean air just a voice command away as the air purifier is compatible with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.
The intelligent LED indicator system atop the LG PuriCare 360° Air Purifier changes from red to orange to yellow to green as the indoor air quality improves so users can easily monitor air quality. No particle will go undetected because the industry-leading PM1.0 Sensor finds contaminants one micron or smaller in diameter.
Superior Energy Efficiency
The ENERGY STAR® certified LG PuriCare 360° and other LG models save energy without compromising performance or style. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ENERGY STAR certified room air purifiers are 40 percent more energy efficient than standard models, saving consumers about 225 kilowatt hours per year and $30 annually on utility bills.
LG PuriCare 360° is available now at a manufacturer's suggested price of $1,299.
