Since 2004, Airfree is one of the biggest air purifier brands in the world, with the exclusive patented filtration technology in-house. The Airfree Iris 3000 is really a look-alike of the most popular Airfree Onix 3000, and if the asking price is to your taste, then you will be happy with this air purifier. Okay, are you ready for the Airfree Iris 3000 Review?
Airfree Iris 3000 Price
If the strongest flagship of the Airfree – Airfree Onix 3000 is too common, then the Airfree Iris 3000 could be your next air purifier. It is still the same appearance since the body of the previous Airfree P1000 model, but it packs the fancy multi-color nightlight function, introducing in the Airfree Tulip not long ago.
The Airfree Iris 3000 is also the flagship of the Iris series from Airfree, but it seems you aren’t able to get the Airfree Iris 1000 or Iris 2000 anywhere, so the Airfree Iris 3000 is still the only one featuring the multi-color nightlight function in a 10-inch body.
Like its sibling, it boasts an exclusive patented thermodynamic TSS technology, an awarded design with new premium black color and a performance that you can’t get with cheaper Airfree devices. The asking price of this Airfree Iris 3000 is, of course, higher with $329. It is $30 higher than the one with only one blue nightlight color, and for many people, it is not their taste.
Also, in the entry-level of the mid-range space, we can find the Winix NK105 and Blueair Classic 205 as the top competitors to the presence of Airfree Iris 3000. Moreover, with the recent drop in price of the Dyson Pure Cool Tower or Dyson Pure Hot+Cool, it’s quite hard to make the Iris 3000 dominant.

Airfree Iris 3000 Design and Size
If you jump to this review from the previous review of Airfree Onix 3000, voila, you don’t need to check the design section. Actually, if you wonder the comparison between the Airfree Iris 3000 and Onix 3000, I would like to inform you that there aren’t many differences. Versus the original P3000, our today Airfree Iris 3000 only comes with a multi-color nightlight function on the top lid.
So to say, when unplugging, the Airfree Iris 3000 and Onix 3000 are two peas in a pod. They share every outside element, from the same height of 10.4 inches, same weight of 3.3 lbs to the very core design concept.
We will have the same bottom-to-top air flow system concept in this Airfree Iris 3000. It’s also the most usable air flow direction to make the Airfree air purifiers work. Without any fan power, the bottom-to-top air flow direction can assist Airfree Iris 3000 in using simple convection to move the air.
On top of this air purifier is the key element of the device – the nightlight top lid. With 9 different colors: Red, Pink, White, Violet, Blue, Dark Blue, Green, Yellow, and Orange; Airfree wants to endorse the chromotherapy to the users. In their manual, Airfree gives some simple attributes of the colors, listing as below:
- Red: Color of joy, activity, warmth, fire, power, passion and strength. Red brings vitality to physical functions and reduces inertia, melancholy, sadness, depressions and lethargy.
- Pink: Protective and nourishing color, warm and soft. It stimulates affection and feelings of love and compassion.
- White: Reflects all other colors and represents peace, chastity, innocence, purity and truth.
- Violet: Reflects dignity, nobility and self-respect. It helps normalize hormonal or glandular activities.
- Dark Blue: A refreshing, relaxing and serene color. It helps cleansing your thoughts and feelings, producing clarity in your communication.
- Blue: Creates a notion of space, serenity and peace. It produces a relaxing and tranquillizing effect.
- Green: Its energy reflects participation, adaptability, generosity and cooperation. This color eases emotions, helps correct reasoning and amplifies consciousness and understanding.
- Yellow: Relates to the sun shining light, joy and good mood reinforcing the nervous system and muscles, including the heart, helping circulation.
- Orange: Dynamism. Relates to ardor and enthusiasm energizing the body and helping assimilation.

Airfree Iris 3000 Filters
As the flagship of this brand, the Airfree Iris 3000 is the finest product with the exclusive air filtration technology in the world.
- Exclusive Patented Thermodynamic TSS Technology – This technology has been independently tested in real-world conditions by ISO 17025 laboratories. The Airfree Iris 3000 destroys the microorganisms and allergens by heating it to over 400°F (200°C) and instantly sterilizing it.
The process of eliminating microorganisms is similar to boiling the water, Airfree Iris 3000 will continually draw in the air to proceed the heating, to the point that no common germs or viruses could be alive. Then it will cool the air and release to the room. The heating process occurs only inside the device, thus makes the air purifier warm, not hot.
This process has one advantage over other common air filtration technologies in the world, and it is the heating process can actual kill the organic allergens. Some inferior mechanical filters are the perfect nest for the mold spores to grow on, and then reduce the efficiency over the time. The Airfree patented thermodynamic TSS technology can ensure to boil into the core of the organic things like mold spores, viruses, dust mites or bacteria, and kill them completely.
On the other hand, the Airfree patented thermodynamic TSS technology can’t actually trap the particulate matters. It will be quite useless against the stack of dust, pet hair, pet fur or other pollutants inside the smoke. It is unable to remove the chemicals, odors or smells, either. That being said, you should only use the Airfree air purifiers if you have extreme allergies and asthma for mold spores, or viruses.
We should know that the heating process is not like any ionizer or UV light filtration, it won’t release any ozone and as a result, won’t trigger asthma or any breathing issues for your respiratory system.
Without the installation of air filter, you will no longer need to remember the date of filter replacement, or worry about the air filter cost anymore.

Airfree Iris 3000 Room Coverage
Just like the original version of this air purifier, the Airfree Iris 3000 can cover a room of up to 650 square feet.
Basically, the Airfree Iris 3000 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.
Actually, we have some CADR rating specs online for the Airfree Iris 3000, which appears to be 325 Dust/ 315 Smoke/ 401 Pollen (cfm). However, I must underline that all AHAM ratings are not applied for the Airfree air purifiers, which don’t have fan power.

Airfree Iris 3000 Sound
Without any fan power, the Airfree Iris 3000 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 Iris 3000 is a great solution to both purify your indoor air, and save you from loud noise.

Airfree Iris 3000 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.
The Airfree Iris 3000 must run gradually 24 hours a day to reach the highest efficiency. Moreover, the patented technology of Airfree can’t have its cycle interrupted. I’ve measured the maximum wattage of this Airfree Iris 3000 to be 52 watts, which is the same as the Airfree Onix 3000.
If you run the Airfree Iris 3000 for at least 8 hours each day, you need to pay $19 each year.

Airfree Iris 3000 Additional Features
One common thing shared among all Airfree air purifiers is the lack of additional features. For a device of minimalism, Airfree Iris 3000 doesn’t have a simple power button. You just only plug it in, and the air purifier will run instantly.
Airfree Iris 3000 has a smart warning sensor, to warn the users if the unit is installed improperly. Most importantly, you can enjoy the exclusive multi-color nightlight, with 9 adjustable colors, which are Red, Pink, White, Violet, Blue, Dark Blue, Green, Yellow, and Orange. You can choose the favorite color and even the intensity, or just let it randomly choose the colors.
Airfree Iris 3000 Customer Service
