My city chokes at the onset of winters. There is smog wherever I look. The CM even shuts schools and construction work for around 15 days. It’s that bad. Therefore, an air purifier has become a health requirement. And just when I was looking for one, Blueair turned a genie and sent one. I’m a happy Blueair family member now. And big congratulations to the brand for turning 25.

Blueair Classic 280i Air Purifier review
The shape, size & the look
It’s like a white box that just fits in the room seamlessly. I’ve kept it alongside my bed’s side table and it stands there gracefully. I just plug in and play whenever I’m in the room. It has become my favourite lifestyle gadget.
One word: Supreme. The Classic 280i will ensure only clean & healthy air inside your room. It completely filters the air in the room (up to 26 m²) 4.8 times an hour.
It has smart sensors that automatically sense any changes in the room conditions and ensure producing clean air as per requirement.
Not only this, the Classic 280i has an advanced SmokeStop™️ filter that’s practical to have. It filters airborne viruses, bacteria, and also gaseous pollutants like smoke, chemical vapours, and pet odours.
It’s efficient and silent which makes it a rare combination. Blueair Classic 280i is whisper silent, so I can sleep next to it.
It’s way cooler than you can think. It is Alexa compatible. You just have to enable AUTO mode and you’re done. Just connect via the Blueair app (which is how I connect to it) or Amazon Alexa enabled device for voice control. I can easily change the configurations of the air purifier using the Blueair app on my phone. One can use the voice commands on any Amazon ALEXA enabled device. That way you just have to shout out the settings you want and the air purifier will adjust to the command issued.
The Blueair app has an excellent level of customisation that lets you control the LED brightness, child lock, night mode scheduling etc.
Also note that the air purifier can achieve purification at a high level of about 5X times in an hour, which is big feat.
With high Delhi pollution levels, Classic 280i effectively gets the job done by cleaning the air of room odours, harmful particles and gases. You just have to give it a reasonable amount of time. The filter is easy to change and will last almost 6 months on regular use.
Wow is the word. I got an immediate call for setting up the installation. Since I was away, I did the installation later myself. The engineer again called and explained everything on the phone on my request. I have his number saved for future reference.
Rs 36,999/-. You can order online and look for a deal as well.
My final word
With the Blueair Classic 280i Air Purifier in my home, I’ve observed these three important changes in my lifestyle:
1. Breathing feels much easier with the purifier. There is fresher air in my room that feels light to breathe.
2. There is a considerable improvement in my daily energy levels. It’s a known fact that clean air affects our physical well-being and I can easily spot that with my energy levels.
3. There is a reduction in allergy reactions to smog, dust, changing weather, pollen, pet dander, and other commonly found pollutants in air. The purifier magically filters smallest & the minute particles of pollutants and brings me cleaner and healthier air consistently.
The Blueair Classic 280i is an all-rounder that is definitely recommended. Blueair meets all my requirements for effective indoor air purification. It is a durable, high performing product & I’ll say go for Classic 280i.
Quick tips on how to choose an air purifier:
