Hamilton Beach Air Purifier

Hamilton Beach HEPA air purifiers are a brand that has a pretty good track record. They all have HEPA-like air filters, which isn’t the best thing to have, however, they perform decently well for not being “True HEPA”. I think they could go a long way in performance by having a “True HEPA air filter, but the price of their air purifiers would skyrocket. Right now the price is optimal.

Hamilton Beach is a lot like Honeywell who have thrived on having an extensive appliance product base, but this same breadth has stretched them thin when it comes to focusing on quality products. Many everything is about the bottom line, and when it comes to producing quality products, the bottom line is not a good line.

Use in different filtration technologies

You will find that a Hamilton Beach air cleaners can be found using several different filtration technologies and can cover a lot of different situations. They do it all for a pretty good price compared to other air purifiers. It is pretty much their big selling point that they can give people the performance they want and make them happy with a fabulous price. I do beg to differ about the performance because inherent issues are within these air purifiers and yet they are so close to being a top quality product at the same time. I doubt Hamilton Beach thinks it will get a return on invest if they do focus more on this business model. Right now they are just letting the business run itself through old practices.

Hamilton Beach Air Purifier Information

The Hamilton Beach air purifier shown above is the most popular version because it doesn’t use ionic technology and it is the perfect size for a small room. Many people only need it for their immediate area so they will not buy 4-5 of them. They would just get a whole house air purifier instead of that. It uses a permanent HEPA-like air filter that you can vacuum clean. It has air filters that are made specific for smoke and pet odors with the use of their zeolite technology. The use of zeolite is not widespread and I believe Austin Air or IQAir uses this technology within their activated carbon air filters as well. They use a lot more of the material, but it is still the same.

Larger air cleaner

They have a larger air cleaner that does similar things like the compact version but has a bigger HEPA-like filter and covers more area. I think this Hamilton Beach air purifier will be suitable for living rooms and dining rooms that may be in an open floor plan. Overall it is not too popular because people aren’t in those rooms for over 8 hours at a time. They do have Hamilton Beach 04492 air purifier and some other similar ones in the line that are tower air purifiers that produce ozone. These are pretty popular because a lot of people are mistaken about ionic air purifiers and it has a sleek design that people enjoy having in their living rooms. Many people enjoy having a good looking air purifier as much as they like having a high-quality one.

Inflatable air purifier

The weirdest looking one is the Hamilton Beach Decor version that is an inflatable air purifier that is quite powerful. It is more of a fashion statement than a different air purifier. It has an HEPA-bag, which is a sac that collects the dirt that you are supposed to empty 6 months ever. It has LED lights that make it light up and look like a piece of artwork. If you have a reason for that, you should try it out. I will eventually get around to reviewing it, and I believe it will just be a joke, but maybe I will keep it as a new lamp.

Pluses:

-Everyone always loves a product that requires minimal maintenance. This allergen reducer has no filters to replace, and the permanent filter only needs to be vacuumed 2-3 times per year.

-We liked how the air purifier can be set up in two different positions – horizontal or vertical.

-The small compact designs make this air purifier very convenient for rooms without a lot of space. It is also lightweight so it can be placed on a desktop or shelf.

-The three speeds are truly quiet which is what we want for a small compact air purifier.

-We are happy to confirm the manufacturers claim that the HEPA grade permanent filter removes 99% of airborne particles down to 3 microns.

-Consumer-friendly products are always good in our books. This air purifier does not cost anything to maintain, and it does not create extra waste to add to the landfills

Minuses:

-The efficiency of a permanent filter will degrade over time.

-The filter is HEPA-grade and will not filter the air as efficiently as a real HEPA filter. The HEPA-grade filter removes 99% of particles down to 3 microns in size where an actual HEPA filter can remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size.

-The air purifier is for the removal of airborne particles only; it is not equipped to remove odors, gasses, or chemicals.

Summary:

We were pleasantly pleased with this compact Hamilton Beach air purifier. The unit performed very well and indeed removed 99% of airborne particles down to 3 microns. We were impressed by the quietness of all three speeds and with its small footprint and versatile design it will fit nicely just about anywhere. An excellent value choice for someone who is interested in the removal of airborne particles only.
