Build quality issues ?
Bought my Climate AP-30 and got the larger model . With very little use the motor has malfunctioned. Disappointed that with such little use has a quality defect - have read great reviews maybe I got a defective unit ?
Purchased for $399.00.
No replacement filters
If your reading this seriously avoid Cli Mate air purifiers, I bought one and have chased the company, Breville, that's who owns it, for replacement filters and have hit brick walls,. Buy a Heller or something else, I'm disgusted with Breville,the owners of the Cli Mate brand.
Average quality, high maintenance & loud.
This unit does a good job at dust and particles that are visible as well as some of the smaller irritants we inhale. But remember, a grade 12 Hepa is only going to block 0.3 microns and higher, when most viruses and germs are smaller than that. Also, 90% of the particle nasties are under 0.3 . I was in a desperate need to get something to help with the incredibly dusty room, and that's all they had in stock. Philips, BlueAir, IQ air and many others, have much better filters that do below 0.3 micron. They are also more expensive, in some cases, ...much more. So you pay for what you get. The unit looks very sleek and the handles make it a cinch to carry around (other manufacturers take note). The auto sensor also works well. However, I am overall unsatisfied to be honest. I have owned purifiers for 20 years, and the cli-mate has the worst maintenance of the lot, as well as the weakest lifespan on it's filters! This was a real surprise and something I wouldn't even think of asking before purchase, as i expected it to be similar to others. They want you to WASH the pre filters and let them dry every week or two weeks.. This is a huge pain. The Hepa is only good for 2000 hours. WOW that is low and by far the worst specs of any $300+ purifier on the market. 2000 hrs at 24/7 operation is just under 3 months! And therein lies the second issue.. the filters are grossly overpriced.. $100 for the set of hepa replacement filters (which i will admit are very cleverly a cinch to install) - which means to run this purifier 24/7 you would need $400 per year just in replacement filters. Suddenly, the more expensive units that do a much better job, simply because they are higher quality, are not much more expensive after all (except the IQ air). In fact the blue air 450E at $500 more purchase price, would have been a much much better long term investment. What a mistake I have made. Right now, the Philips 1000 which is the same price, does 60m2 rather than 30m2, and can filter to 0.02 microns. I should have been patient till that was back in stock. Those cli-mate filter prices are absolutely obnoxious and I honestly wish I could return the machine. Of course if they were yearly filters like other purifiers, $100 would be perfectly normal. It's the fact that they are only rated for 2000 hours.

Product doesn't work well
I've had my cli-mate 30 for 4 days i don't recommend it. It blows air up to hard then it can't suck the air in because it blows way too hard I've had it on since i brought it and my lungs hurt really bad in the morning it mainly just blows air around your room it's good for air circulation but that about it all it's doing is the same as a fan it only picks up dust and smoke if it's directly on the intake holes other than that it's completely useless and a waste of money.
