Thanks for your review! it will be published soon. Thank you! your review was submitted
I bought this for my parents house. They watch my son while I work. They are both smokers and smoke in the house when the baby is not there. This completely clears the air and no residue of smoke is noted when I pick up the baby or drop him off.
I regret waiting as long as I did before buying these!! We live in the desert and dust is always an issue. I bought three of the AeraMax 300's three weeks ago - one at each end of the house, one in the middle. We've not had to dust furniture ONCE since having these in place!! Our home smells noticeably fresher and we're breathing easier!!! The true test for me was cooking odor. We have an open floor plan and my Wife cooks a lot of ethnic food with strong smells. This past weekend, she cooked up a big meal and within an hour the odor was gone! Curiously, our power usage has dropped 30 KwH on a daily basis since having these in our home. I believe it has to do with the fact that we have better circulation and the heatpump filters are taking on so much dust. Some of the more negative reviews have alluded to a plastic smell. When the purifier ships, the filter is wrapped in plastic...you have to take that plastic off because if you don't...it will smell like plastic. :\ Anyway, if you're trying to find a state of the art air purifier, this is it!! We don't have allergies, but I have to believe this would bring a world of difference to someone who does!
I have been using this purifier since July 1. This unit intakes air from two sides and expels from a vent at the top of the front and I have had no issues with placing it next to a wall or in a corner. It has definitely cut my dust allergies down quite significantly and has made my home more comfortable. I prefer not to have this on if I have the windows open for a while (just seems like a waste). QUIET on lowest setting but still effective and is good for those who enjoy a BIT of white noise. It gets louder with each setting but I personally don't mind it at all. The auto setting works great when cooking to help with smells. I love the ease of use, the size of the unit looks just fine with the rest of the room, and the handle is also convenient when I feel like moving the unit to a new location. I find it to be lightweight as well, but that varies for individuals. Also, some reviews have noted a plastic smell... I recall a somewhat sterile smell when first turned on and I was worried it was permanent but I gave it a week and haven't noticed it since. Maybe some users did not remove the plastic wrap from the filter before powering on. The blue lights personally do not bother me at night.UPDATE August, 2017: Everything I stated remains the same and I am so pleased! I have unintentionally put this purifier through hell (accidentally had it on while kitchen counter tops were being glued (no one or pets in the house) and other construction and painting projects) and the HEPA filter light came on about 2 months before the full year mark. Not bad! The charcoal filter spans about every quarter so make sure to have spares on hand. When I didn't have the HEPA replacement on hand it was noticeably more muggy and not quite as fresh.
* OVERALLl: This makes the room smell reminiscent of a health facility because it makes the air so clean and has noticeably improved the number of sinus infections I get.* Noise: it can get loud on level 4+ but that is because it's taking in and pressing out a lot of air. At 2 or below, it's quiet enough to watch tv alongside and still be able to hear. At level 3, you could get by with turning the tv up slightly. For conversation in the room, fan speed 3+ is a no go.* The Ionizer: The ionizer can be turned off by holding down the bottom blue button with the star on it, which I always keep turned off. Since the mere presence of an ionizer and plasma tech can release ozone even when not in use, I wish I could remove it. Ozone means particles are larger, heavier, and stick to the insides of your lungs more easily. This causes lung irritation and keeps irritants within the lungs more securely and for longer periods of times. You generally don't want to breathe ozone in you have no respiratory issues, and if you have lung sensitivity, allergies, asthma, COPD, etc., you're really going to want to avoid it entirely.* Size: The unit is big, about 2.5' tall, and the air intake is on the sides.* LIGHT ISSUE: I wish the lights that illuminated the buttons could be turned off at night, as the light keeps me awake (blue light). I've resorted to covering it with some fabric, which covers the import and export vent slightly. AERAMAX, PLEASE provide an option to turn off all the lights. The light shines from the buttons, and also shines out the sides of the device through the intake vents in a darkened room. Any light disrupts melatonin production, and blue light is the worst suspect. After over a year of 24/7 use, I'm buying another brand of air purifier just to alleviate this issue of fighting with the light emanating from the machine.* Weight: Heavy. This is not something you're going to want to move from room to room. It has a handle for carrying it if needed, but you're going to want to leave it where you left it. Since it's wide and narrow and tall, and thus tippy, you're not going to want to attach wheels or place it on a wheeling base to combat the weight of moving it.* Filters: The carbon filters appear to need replacing twice as often as the HEPA filters.* Aesthetics: I would have appreciated the black areas of the unit being white, to lend a more sleek and modern vibe, as it looks more like a 1990's space capsule with it's shape and contrasting black and white. Something about Nintendo comes to mind, and ET.* Structural Design: I love that the vent that blows the clean air is at the top, and can be tilted and directed where you want it. You can aim it to blow right at your face if you have a sinus headache and/or breath clean air while you work on the computer or watch TV.* Longevity/Quality: 100%. I have used this device 24/7 at fan speed 3 for over a year and it's still going strong. It's gone through 3 HEPA filter changes, and 4 carbon filter changes, not always replaced on time ;)
