  • Product Overview

    Eliminate airborne allergens and tackle irritating household odors—all while keeping an eye on your finances—with the Whirlpool Whispure 450 Air Purifier. This Energy Star air purifier, also known as the Whirlpool Whispure AP45030K or the Whirlpool AP450, is one of few air cleaners on the market that carries the Energy Star seal for efficient, cost-effective operation. In addition, the Whirlpool Whispure 450 has historically been top-ranked by a leading consumer reporting magazine, garnering favorable ratings in dust and smoke removal and quiet operation. The 450 is a smaller version of the top consumer-rated Whirlpool Whispure 510 Air Purifier.


    This HEPA air purifier is ideal for air purification in offices, family rooms, bedrooms, basements, and any other area in your home or office that would benefit from cleaner air. It is rated to cover up to 490 square feet.

    Three Stages of Air Filtration

    Formerly known as the Whirlpool Whispure AP45030S, this Whirlpool air purifier features three stages of filtration: a permanent pre-filter, a carbon filter, and a true HEPA filter. During operation, air initially moves through the 450's permanent pre-filter, which doubles as the air purifier's front cover. This washable plastic filter helps to catch large particles before they reach the carbon and HEPA filters. This in turn, helps boost the efficiency of the carbon and HEPA filters.

    After moving through the permanent pre-filter, air then passes through a carbon filter, which helps absorb and neutralize irritating odors, such as cigarette smoke, chemical scents, and cooking odors. Finally, air moves through a true HEPA filter, where 99.97% of allergen particles sized 0.3 microns and larger are removed. These particles include mold spores, pollen, pet dander, ragweed, dust mites, dust particles and any other impurities that may be lingering in your indoor air.

    This three-stage filtration system helps the Whirlpool Whispure AP45030K achieve exceptionally high CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) measurements for dust, smoke, and pollen. CADR ratings tell you how much of a specific pollutant an air purifier can remove in cubic feet per minute. As a rule of thumb, remember that the closer the number to the maximum CADR measurement, the more effective the air cleaner. The 450 maintains some of the highest CADR ratings in the industry.

    • Dust: 328 (CADR maximum for dust is 400)
    • Smoke: 317 (CADR maximum for smoke is 450)
    • Pollen: 354 (CADR maximum for pollen is 450)

    Easy-To-Use Controls

    To help simplify operation, the Whirlpool 450 features a manual control panel equipped with a rotary dial that allows you to adjust purification speeds. Choose from three fan speeds—low, medium, and high—depending on how quickly you want to purify your room air. The control panel also includes two filter indicator lights that illuminate to let you know when it's time to replace the carbon and HEPA filters.

    Energy Star Rated

    Energy Star Seal

    The Whirlpool Whispure 450 is Energy Star-rated. Energy Star air purifiers are approximately 40 percent more efficient than standard models. On average, these models save consumers 340 kilowatts per hour of electricity per year than comparable air purifiers that are not Energy Star-qualified. In dollar figures, this energy savings works out to $39 annually on utility bills and potentially up to more than $340 over the life of the air purifier.

     

    Additional Features

    Other top features of the Whirlpool 450 air cleaner include:

    • Unique Airflow Design – Purified air is released back into your space using an air return grille situated on the top of the system. This allows you to place the air purifier against a wall without impeding airflow.
    • Quiet Operation – The 450's lowest speed is ultra-quiet and ideal for overnight operation.
    • Built-In Cord Storage – No more power cord tangles—use the appliance's built-in cord storage to safely store the power cord when it's not in use.
    • Lightweight – Weighing in at only 26 pounds, you can easily move the air purifier from room to room as your purification needs change.
    • Longer Filter Lives – Replace the 450 carbon filter every three months; replace the HEPA filter just once per year.

    Allergy-driven, draining sinuses have plagued me for nearly all the five years I have lived in my present home. Doctors blamed tree pollen for I live in mountain woods. But the problem has been the same regardless of which of the four seasons has come. And, the symptoms completely disappear when I stay at the mountain home in the woods of a friend in China. This finally led me to try an air purifier. After reading the reviews written about all the brands and models I could find, I decided on the Whirlpool Whispure 450 Air Purifier.

    I set it in the living room where I spend much of the day and evening reading. In only two days my sinuses were clear. The room has an 11.5 x 16 foot Karastan wool rug which seems to have been the source of the allergic reaction. I am saving a fortune on Puffs tissue. In a while I will move the unit to my bedroom and clear the air there.

    On low speed, the unit is very quiet, quiet enough to get used to and become unnoticeable. I have not tried the two higher speeds. The cleaned air is ejected up. As it is set next to a wall, the air stream circulates the warm air at the ceiling down into the room making it noticeably warmer in the winter (and probably somewhat warmer in the summer). The only thing I dislike is the color, white, which makes it an eye-sore in an otherwise attractive room.

    Make no mistake, this is ONLY an "air filter", complete with air filter pro's and cons. Filters SHOULD be cheap, since they have to be replaced each month or 2. They are not. THIS is where filter companies make most their money. A washable lint screen is a HUGE plus, but "everything" depends on "you" keeping ALL filters and screens completely clean... ALL THE TIME, or it's efficiency drops dramatically.

    *Less air through the unit = less air filtered.
    *ONLY air "near the unit" is filtered!
    *ONLY VOC's and odors "near the unit" are captured IF the Carbon filter is fresh!
    *This is a one-room unit.
    *If you have odors, airborne allergens, VOC's, or close doors between rooms you use, throughout the house, you need ONE PER ROOM!
    *Multiply unit= cost + yearly costs (per room). 2 rooms= $500+ $40-$80 1st year, $240-$280 per year afterwards

      Comments about Whirlpool Whispure 450 Air Purifier (AP45030K):

      I bought this air purifier for air quality as I have cats and litter pans. It has done a very good job of controlling the dust and odor in the room with the litter pans. The air noticeably smells better, and don't have to dust the furniture as often. I use the high setting during the day and the low setting at night. The low setting noise is very acceptable and does not bother me while sleeping.

                I purchased this unit to help clear cigar smoke. My husband smokes in the house, in a room which has a folding door with large cracks for smoke to seep through. We have placed the unit outside the door of the smoking room, and it makes a noticeable difference in the odor in the house.

                The unit is attractive and easy to use. The back is flat (no air intake or circulation in the back), which means you can place this along a wall, so it is unobtrusive.

                Have not had this unit long enough to know what the maintenance will entail. Also, only run this when cigar smoking is going on, so cannot comment on how full time operation might affect electric bill.

                I am glad I made this purchase, because it is helping with the problem.

                  I have two cats and in my den which is about 200 sq feet I have two Large litter boxes in the closet where I took the doors off so the cats can have the room and boxes that they need. Well the room was always dusty the TV, computer, the desk everything had to be wiped down quite often. With my new Whirlpool Whispure 450 it does an amazing job. You can actually feel yourself breathing better because I spend about 4 hours a day on the computer and I know the cats love it because you know there also breathing better. If you have a room up to I would suggest 400 sq maybe a little larger you need to get one and you can hardy hear it. I'm very happy and considering getting another one. My problem is that my eating area goes into my kitchen which goes into the great room it's about 1100 sq feet of open space so I would need more then one and I trying to find the spots to put them in I'm that impressed.

                  We set it up to clear the air in our den/living room area cause when sun shone thru windows, the dust motes were THICK! These 2 rooms are connected by a large opening and we spend 90% of our indoor time here.Approximately 400 sq. feet total.
                  Plus, we were sneezing at the puzzle table a lot. After we got the air cleaner, no more dusty looking air. I still dust the furniture,but it does seem to be not as often.
                  Motor is a bit noisy on medium and high. We set it on low mostly because of this reason.
