Philips AC1215 Air Purifier- Designed For Brilliant Air Purification
The Philips AC1215 Air Purifier is a mean machine. It is a member of the Philips 1000 series air purifier family. It is designed to be as efficient as possible even if it means sacrificing on the looks department. The front side of it has fans which pull the room’s air through the filters. The back vents thrust the clean air upwards back into the room. It is way better than most other Philips models like AC4014, AC4025 or AC4072. In terms of value for money and sensory features, only the Philips AC2887 2000 series air purifier takes a lead from it. Read this review to know more.
True HEPA Filters
If you are looking for an air purifier with True-HEPA Air filters and the trust from Philips, then go for it. There are not many air purifiers out there which have True-HEPA filters. The H13 class filters can clean 99.95% of 0.3 micron sizes particles from the air. Products that claim to be “HEPA-type”, “HEPA-like”, “HEPA-style” or “99% HEPA” do not satisfy the standards set for HEPA filters. The VitaShield Intelligent Purification System can removes 99.97% allergens and ultra-fine particles as small as 0.02 microns, 100 times smaller than PM 2.5.
The Air purifier is certified from AirMid, ECARF and AHAM.
Design and Looks
As pointed out above, there have not been any compromises made with the efficiency of the air purifier and its working. At first look, you may feel its exterior to have too many holes. You may even feel the absence of any designs or patterns for beautification. The body is white with a black control panel mounted at the top.

The performance of AC1215 has been excellent and consumer reviews reflect the same. The whole lot of sensors and features are greatly useful. There is hardly anything missing except for the humidifying function.
The air purifier may take some time in displaying Blue color indicating clean air. The cause may be too much pollution levels in the air or chilly weather conditions. As recommended for all other air purifiers, keep your rooms closed completely for best results.
There are 3 filters in the unit viz. Pre-filter, HEPA and Activated-Carbon filter. You may have seen up to 7 stage filtration in air purifiers. The good quality HEPA filters in AC1215 make up for the extra layers. Also, it has a thicker HEPA filter. The Pre-filter should be washed regularly under running water. This prolongs the longevity and improves the performance of filters.

We recommend the Philips AC1215 air purifier wholeheartedly.
