Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher: Can it really remove odors, kill mosquitoes?

As someone who has experienced being hospitalized due to dengue, survived a two-year-long pandemic, and recently lost two dogs due to an airborne virus, I’ve become intensely aware of the importance of health-conscious living. However, the challenge is eliminating virus we can’t see and going after hard-to-catch bugs… especially mosquitoes. It’s almost impossible! That’s where home essentials like the SHARP Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher (FP-GM50E-B) come into play, offering a proactive solution to combat airborne pollutants and potentially harmful insects. As I’ve learned firsthand, investing in products that prioritize health and safety can make all the difference in maintaining a secure and comfortable living environment.


With four settings – auto, max, low, and sleep – this device adapts to the needs of every room, providing tailored air purification. It can be best described as a multifunctional appliance designed to enhance the air quality in your home while also providing protection against mosquitoes. It’s equipped with a mosquito-catching function that utilizes UV light to attract and trap mosquitoes. While this feature shows promise in theory, I haven’t completely checked its effectiveness since it’s still dry season in the Philippines. Currently, it tends to capture more pet fur than actual mosquitoes because there seems to be none in our area for now. Let’s see if it works once the rainy season a.k.a. mosquito season arrives.

It does not stop at just air purifying and mosquito catching, though! One of the key features of the Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher is its Plasmacluster Ion Technology. By emitting positive and negative ions, this technology effectively kills bacteria, viruses, allergens, and molds present in the air. This helps to reduce the risk of respiratory illnesses and other health issues caused by airborne contaminants. Practicality is further highlighted with the Ion Mode, which intensively cleans the air after cooking or during periods of stale air, ensuring a fresh and clean ambiance in no time.

In addition to its Plasmacluster Ion Technology, this air purifier also utilizes ultimate HEPA filters to remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air. This includes dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne pollutants, ensuring that the air you breathe is clean and fresh.

Unlike conventional air purifiers that produce noise whenever it’s on, this device operates silently, allowing for a peaceful indoor environment. You’ll only know that it’s detecting impurities in the air when the lights turn to orange! After it’s done its work, the lights go back to blue.


Considering how it randomly rains in between super hot days in the Philippines, it can also be hard for toy collectors like me who are continuously battling mold growth! Having such appliances on the side gives me peace of mind and an extra layer of protection for my precious collectibles. I also add Silica Gels and keep my items in a dry place too, though.

I’ve placed the Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher near the doorway to our kitchen and based on experience, it can successfully remove odors and static electricity from the air, creating a more pleasant and comfortable indoor environment. It also helps to improve skin moisture, making it suitable for those with dry or sensitive skin. Take it from me, who has both asthma and eczema. I haven’t had an attack yet for the past few weeks and I think this is also helping in some way.

With its three levels of filtration and efficient air circulation, the Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher provides thorough and effective air purification. The device is capable of filtering air at a rate of 48 – 306 m³/h, ensuring that it can effectively clean the air in rooms of various sizes.

Design-wise, it’s not eye-catching so it easily blends with any room it’s in (provided that your furniture and wallpaper are not pastel colors). From what I know, mosquitoes are also attracted to dark areas so I’m pretty confident that this can do its job along with the UV light. Size is just right, too!

Overall, the Sharp Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher offers a range of features aimed at improving indoor air quality and I’d like to believe that it will be successful in providing protection against mosquitoes. While some users may experience initial challenges with understanding which setting is for what, the device’s advanced filtration technology ensures that it effectively removes airborne pollutants as per Sharp’s internal tests, making it a valuable addition to any home.


For those interested in adding the SHARP Air Purifier with Mosquito Catcher to their homes, you can order one (or more) at SHARP outlets nationwide and through their official online stores for Php 19,998.
