Wish we'd bought it years ago
Bought this on a particularly smoky day (bushfires and back burning), my fiancee has bad asthma and was genuinely worried about ending up in hospital. Ran out and bought one, brought it home, ten minutes sitting near it on full blast in a fairly large lounge room and she was breathing easily. I was shocked how well it worked, it was much better than we'd expected. We've since bought a smaller unit for the bedroom.
Why 4 not 5 stars? It is pretty noisy and filters are expensive to replace. I am also rating this a little higher because it's relatively cheap; there are units that can filter smaller particles but they cost a lot more.
Works well but filters are expensive
I’ve had my Cli-Mate AP30 unit for around 3 months & I've been impressed by how in Auto mode it senses any increase in dust & chemicals in the air & the fan automatically speeds up until the air is clean. It can be annoying however listening to the fan repeatedly speed up & slow down as it reacts to changes in the amount of dust & chemicals it senses.
One of the reasons I chose it over other air purifiers is that it’s very quiet when set to auto mode. One minor irritation is the blue operating lights being quite strong at night & lighting u...p the room. I have the unit located outside my cat's enclosed litter tray & when my cat does his business & stirs up the litter the fan in the Cli-Mate AP30 speeds up on sensing the litter dust coming from the enclosure. It also senses chemicals in the air e.g. spray on deodorant, after shave lotion, smoke & the fan speeds up until the air is clean again. My main complaint is that the filters are expensive costing $99. It’s recommended that the filters are replaced every 8 months or 1500 hours of operation. Running the unit 24 hours per day the warning light indicating that the filters need changing started flashing after less than 3 months continuous use. If I changed the filters every 1500 hours while running the unit 24 hours a day it would cost me at least $400 per year for filters making it prohibitively expensive to run. I’m going to ignore the flashing warning light & continue to use the filters for up to a year because I mainly bought the unit to remove dust from the air & the filters still do this as long as you clean them regularly.
It functions as advertised and is priced well compared to others of equal specification.
I purchased the CLI-AP30 for the wife who has allergies so I thought, with a little bit of scepticism, to give it a go. It's been used in the bedroom over the last two months and I notice no dust which you usually see in the sunbeams, and the wife says she is sleeping better with no more episodes of tightness in the chest or breathing difficulties. I hand wash the coarse filters under water fortnightly and there’s dust present where it’s drawing in air, so I know that it has to be working.
The only cons so far are:
