Airfree is spreading their thermodynamic air purifiers message with the latest Airfree BabyAir. In short, it is just a baby version of the popular Airfree Tulip. What should you know more, especially if you don’t know the original version? Let’s find out in our today Airfree BabyAir Review.
Update: The Airfree BabyAir is a low-range air purifier of this company, which is only for small rooms. If you want the air purifier with the highest performance, you should check the Airfree Lotus, or Airfree Iris 3000.

- Lacks of additional features
Airfree continues the design language of Airfree Tulip to the new Airfree BabyAir, and it seems this company is focusing on making air purifier for baby right now. So is this new device any better than the current lineup of Airfree? We will find out right now, in this Airfree BabyAir Review.
Airfree BabyAir Price
Airfree thermodynamic air purifiers are nothing new these days and almost the only thing that we’re looking for one Airfree air purifier is because of the curiosity. But these air purifiers are coming from top low-range to mid-range upwards, so unless you really love having a nightlight air purifier in your bedroom, you should think carefully.
However, the dedicated thermodynamic air purifiers are truly silent and energy efficient. Its performance may not be the best to deal with multiple of airborne allergens, but it can prevent mold growth pretty well. Even for a compact unit, the Airfree BabyAir happens to deal with large room of 450 square feet, which is insane for a low-range product, right?
Airfree doesn’t officially announce the price tag of this Airfree BabyAir, but it is guessed to be around $199, just like the Airfree P1000. It is cheaper a lot than the big brothers: Airfree Tulip, Airfree P2000 and Airfree Onix 3000.
However, buying it means you skip the most powerful air purifiers like Honeywell HPA300 and Blue Pure 211. Moreover, with such price, the Airfree BabyAir is competing in a very aggressive competitive segment, with strong contenders like Winix C545, Vornado AC550, Sharp FP-K50UW or TruSens Z-2000.

Airfree BabyAir Design and Size
Like I’ve mentioned earlier, in short, the Airfree BabyAir is just the compact version of the Airfree Tulip. It means you just need to shrink down the size of the old product to get the exact Airfree Babyair.
Well, you get a fair slice of quality in the looks department. While the old Tulip is quite big, Airfree BabyAir makes me think of the previous Airfree P1000, with a height of just 7.7 inches and the diameter of 5.7 inches. So the Airfree BabyAir is quite short, but its base is the same as the Tulip 1000 model.
Put the Airfree BabyAir side-by-side with other Airfree products, I find a quite similarity in size with the Airfree Lotus. Still, the Airfree BabyAir is much more compact with smaller base, so you can easily place it anywhere in your home.
The modern design is even better with the big nightlight lid as the highlight. Also, Airfree BabyAir shares the same bottom-to-top air flow system concept with its brothers. You still have a large air intake at the bottom, and a great top air outlet, decorated with a full rainbow of colors from the nightlight function.
However, the Airfree BabyAir is so light, with only 2.2 lbs in weight. So be careful with your babies or pets, as they can shove down the air purifier for sure.

Airfree BabyAir Filters
Airfree is famous for their exclusive air filtration technology, which is again to be found on this Airfree BabyAir.
- Exclusive Patented Thermodynamic TSS Technology – This technology has been independently tested in real-world conditions by ISO 17025 laboratories. The Airfree Tulip destroys the microorganisms and allergens by heating it to over 400°F (200°C) and instantly sterilizing it.
You can easily compare this patented thermodynamic technology with boiling the water, which eliminates microorganisms by continually drawing in the air to proceed the heating. So far, the Airfree BabyAir can destroy any germs or viruses in such temperature. Moreover, the heating process occurs only inside the device, thus makes the air purifier warm, not hot.
So to say, you don’t need any air filter to trap the airborne pollutants, because the process destroy the biological particles. However, the Airfree Babyair is quite ineffective against the particulate matters like dirt, pet hair or fur in general. In fact, there are many negative reviews for the Airfree air purifiers not working, and I believe you should consider carefully before choosing an Airfree model. Remember, the air purifier is only for anyone who have extreme allergies and asthma for mold spores, or viruses.
Finally, I must repeat that you don’t need to look for the filter replacement, because Airfree BabyAir doesn’t have any mechanical filters inside.

Airfree BabyAir Room Coverage
Basically, the Airfree BabyAir is not a regular air purifier. It doesn’t use the fan as a mean to pull in the air, while the CADR rating indicates volume of filtered air delivered by an air cleaner, which is not designed for Airfree air purifiers. Also, the device needs to run gradually for uninterrupted cycle of air, so there is no ACH rating, either.

Airfree BabyAir Sound
Airfree BabyAir doesn’t use fan to pull in the air, so it is completely silent. You won’t notice or hear any sound from this air purifier. In fact, you don’t even know if the air purifier is working or not. Airfree suggests to check the top lid and see if it’s warm, the air purifier is working perfectly.
Some people can’t just sleep with even the slightest noise, so the Airfree BabyAir can guarantee you the perfect bedroom environment, with Nightlight function and complete silence.

Airfree BabyAir Power Consumption
An air purifier is designed to run for a long time to be more efficient, making the high-priority question in Breathe Quality is: “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” To know the answer, we will need to check the power consumption of this air purifier.
Just like any Airfree air purifier, I recommend to run the Airfree BabyAir constantly 24 hours a day, to reach the highest efficiency. Airfree said that the patented technology can’t have its cycle interrupted, mostly because the air purifier doesn’t have fan power. That’s why you will be relieved to know that Airfree BabyAir is extremely energy-saving, with a rated power of only 44 watts.
If you run the Airfree BabyAir for at least 8 hours each day, you need to pay only $16 each year.

Airfree BabyAir Additional Features
Airfree BabyAir shares the same Nightlight function with its Airfree Tulip brother, with 10 adjustable colors, which are Red, Rose, Violet, Blue, Light Blue, Green, Yellow Orange, Brown, and Gray to choose from. You can also adjust the intensity of your favorite color, or just let it run in random orders.
Besides the signature Nightlight feature, Airfree BabyAir doesn’t have any other additional features to look for. It is truly an ease-of-use air purifier.
Airfree BabyAir Customer Service

The Airfree air purifiers are also backed up with a 2-year warranty policy. Though this is not the best warranty policy in the air purifier industry, it is enough for you to rely on the devices.
If you favor small size, you will love the Airfree BabyAir, which is a good alternative for both the Airfree Tulip and Airfree P1000. It is also more affordable, and has the signature Nightlight function, which is preferable for bedroom use.
