Discrepancy in particulate reading with no response from Breville

Purchased three new air filters of the Breville brand. Placed all three in the same room to set up and function check. Two units read mostly between 1-5 on the particulate reading whilst out of the box one reads 20+ and goes into the 30+. Emailed Breville fifteen days ago with multiple follow up emails trying to get assistance. I have not heard back from them. They have been provided two case numbers during my correspondence to them. I receive no reply of assistance or explanation but still get emails from them advertising more stuff.
Two units appear to be operating well for the first 15 days.
As can be seen in the picture with three units running in the same room the particulate reading has a significant difference in reading. Show details

Breath of fresh air at home

Breville's LAP208WHT air purifier is a game-changer. I like the compact design and how quiet it functions, particularly on the night time setting. We run this daily, and I find works like a charm especially with small children in the house. The filter is super easy to clean, and it’s very lightweight for ease of moving. It does have an app, if I don’t find the app particularly user friendly so I always use the buttons on the device. Show details

With xovid times is god to have cleaner air in your home, that’s the reason we bought this appliance

Best feature is that is connected to wifi and works autonomous and forget about it, clean the air and smells when cooking fairly quick, good to know how poor is the air after cooking a steak, very Happy with the product. Only downsize is a bit pricy Show details

Love this unit!

This is great in the bedroom as I wake up with less allergy symptoms. I love how it visually lights up with the colours and it specifies the number level. After a year, I changed the filter, but it didn't seem to be working properly. A call to the Breville helpline solved that with step by step instructions on resetting etc. I was really impressed with the friendly service of the Breville helpline and highly recommend this unit for the product and the service.
Just make sure you keep up with the maintenance of cleaning the filter monthly as it's so good, it builds up quite a bit of dust. Show details

Great little air purifier!

I run this unit for a year and run it 24/7 in the laundry where my cat has its litter box and food. Good to power on high after a cleanup to remove left over smells. Show details

I am liking it so far, I do have a question

I love my purifier, it helps to remove smoke. We have a bird in the house so whenever I see the light turns red due to cooking smoke, or my bf came in from balcony with ciggie lingers around him, or when we used deodorant...this purifier never miss to indicate it. I will put my bird at somewhere with more ventilation.

I found that when the weather is humid, it seems to stay yellow more often. I do not think the air quality was poor, and once I turn the aircon on, the rings goes back to blue in a while. Does the humidity caused the dust stick to the sensor more? I don't know. Does anyone noticed this?  Show details

It’s just the best!!! Especially if you have a sensitive sense of smell!

I love this Air purifier. We have the smaller model in my bedroom which is wonderful and we bought this one for the living room. It gets rid of the smells from our indoor dogs, cooking smells, most smells really! I have a nose like a bloodhound so it’s just a godsend. Great to use Iin the kitchen when chopping onions to stop from crying. And when there’s smoke around, we live in the bush so there’s a lot of burning off that happens, it’s amazing for removing he smoke from the room. I love it so much. Show details

Good Value for a great product

So good I bought two. I have asthma and COPD and bought the purifiers during the Canberra bush fire smoke. They have never been switched off since. They are cheap to run and despite heavy use the filters don’t need changing. An added advantage of them is that they are very good at getting rid of cooking smells. People who have seen them in action have gone on to buy their own. Show details

I have replaced the filter because red light was on. I have tried to reset the light but to no avail. What is the next step ? Or does the purifier have to go for repair or something else ???

Had this for 2 years and the lights and readout on the app are constantly in the red and over 100. Have tried everything. On its third filter.
It’s cleaned regularly, house is cleaned rigorously. It feels like a waste of time having on when the machine is telling me my air is constantly rubbish. Is this a fault?!

Ours only goes high when we blow out a candle or spray airfreshener, if the room smells and looks clean, maybe its fault.

Purchased unit for large room and for 2 days it's telling our place has poor air quality. Tested in large and small rooms and had no difference. We are 100m from the shore and I thought we have fresh air all the time.
