The Airfree Tulip 1000 has the same style of inside power found in the Airfree P1000, but it is a new change in design that we should care about. Today, we will check the latest Airfree Tulip Review, and if you want to compare the Tulip with the P1000, you will like this review.

Look at the Airfree Tulip 1000, a device conveying the Airfree message in a new design, which resembles the small-room Airfree T800 and Airfree FIT800 a lot. It is still the personal air purifier of the Portuguese air purifier brand, with some distinctive features only available in this lineup. Let’s dig deep in the Airfree Tulip 1000 Review.
Airfree Tulip Price
Airfree’s big push with the Airfree Tulip is the fact that they change the consistent design from Airfree P1000, Airfree P2000 and even continue to the Airfree Onix 3000. It comes with a fancy nightlight function, and it’s tempting to choose the Tulip over other models because of this feature.
But from the inside, we have same performance as the popular model. The Airfree Tulip is capable of cleaning a room of 450 square feet. It is still great capability, as the average living room size in U.S is only 330 square feet, we can use the Airfree Tulip without any trouble.
Airfree Tulip price is around $239, which is $20 higher than the Airfree P1000. It is sold widely in nearly every popular retailers in the United States.
With the same room coverage as the Airfree Tulip, you can select between the Honeywell HPA300 and Blue Pure 211. These air purifiers have the best value fan power for the price, which are quite noisy at the highest setting. However, they all can capture the actual particulate matters, and you will see the difference in indoor air quality immediately.

Airfree Tulip Design and Size
In pictures the Airfree Tulip looks curvy and sleek, but get the device in the house and it feels oddly hollow.
We get used to the old compact size of the previous Airfree P1000, which are just like a soccer ball. But Airfree played up the size to make the new Airfree Tulip with the height of 13.3 inches. It’s not thinner, though, as the width and depth are both 5.7 inches.
Airfree Tulip’s design is very clean too, with only the big nightlight lid as the main focus. The air purifier still remains the bottom-to-top air flow system concept, and this is the only usable air flow direction possible for the lineup of Airfree. The air intake grill is larger than usual, and it is opened, rather than hidden under the body like the Airfree P2000 or P1000. The air outlet on top is decorated with a full rainbow of colors from the nightlight function.
In my opinion, it’s far better to make Airfree devices tabletop of wall-mountable like the Airfree FIT800, because these air purifiers don’t make use of regular fan power, instead they use simple convection to move the air. Making a device to stand on ground, or on the carpet will reduce the efficiency of this air purifier.
The Airfree Tulip is one of the most lightweight air purifiers in the world, with the weight of only 2.4 lbs. You can move it anywhere in your home, but be careful, because interrupting the cycle results in loss of efficiency.

Airfree Tulip Filters
Like any other Airfree air purifiers, the Airfree Tulip runs an exclusive patented thermodynamic technology, as described as below.
- 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.
The process of eliminating microorganisms is similar to boiling the water, Airfree Tulip 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.
You should think of this technology as a process of destroying the organic matters, not trapping them. So if you want a device to clean the dirt or pet hair out of your indoor air, you will be disappointed. 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.
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 Tulip Room Coverage
Just like the Airfree P1000, Airfree Tulip will cover a large room of 450 square feet as suggested by the manufacturer.
Basically, the Airfree Tulip 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 Tulip Sound
Without any fan power, the Airfree Tulip 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 Tulip is a great solution to both purify your indoor air, and save you from loud noise.

Airfree Tulip 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 Tulip must run gradually 24 hours a day to reach the highest efficiency. Moreover, the patented technology of Airfree can’t have its cycle interrupted. Fortunately, the Airfree Tulip has a lower power consumption than even an average light bulb, with rated power of only 44 watts.
If you run the Airfree Tulip for at least 8 hours each day, you need to pay $16 each year.

Airfree Tulip Additional Features
One common thing shared among all Airfree air purifiers is the lack of additional features. For a device of minimalism, Airfree Tulip doesn’t have a simple power button. You just only plug it in, and the air purifier will run instantly.
The most distinct feature from the Airfree Tulip is its signature nightlight function. You can enjoy the exclusive multi-color nightlight, with 10 adjustable colors, which are Red, Rose, Violet, Blue, Light Blue, Green, Yellow Orange, Brown, and Gray. You can choose the favorite color and even the intensity, or just let it randomly choose the colors.
Airfree Tulip Customer Service
Though the Airfree’s origin isn’t American, you can find their products in many of the most trusted retailers like Amazon, Sylvane or Walmart. They provide full support via email from their Contact Us page, or via phone at 626-921-4426.
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.
The Airfree Tulip is a fancy alternative to the usual Airfree P1000. It is more expensive, though, so if you are so sensitive about the price, the P1000 is still more preferable.
