Hamilton Beach Air Purifiers

Overview

Hamilton Beach is a well known name in home appliances.  Their air purifiers target the lower end, mass appeal segment of the market.  None of their purifiers have been submitted for objective testing that we could find.  Although Hamilton Beach supplies recommended room sizes, we also couldn't locate any fan circulation info so are unsure of how well these units pull in air to their filters.

Hamilton Beach Company Info

Hamilton Beach is a Virginia-based corporation that manufactures a wide variety of home appliances, such as blenders, drink mixers, toasters, and irons, as well seven different models of air purifiers, most of which include the term "True Air" in their names. Hamilton Beach also produces devices intended to reduce allergens or odors, though these are different from air purifiers and are not covered here. The company is a major player in its field and has been in business since 1910.

Hamilton Beach Air Purifier Technology

All of the different models offered by Hamilton Beach make use of high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, which target particles that pollute the air, but do not address polluting gasses or contribute to odor reduction. Certain other Hamilton Beach models, however, also use other methods in addition to HEPA, including: carbon pre-filters, which reduce odors; ultraviolet lights, which are damaging to airborne bacteria that can cause diseases; ionizers, which negatively charge air particles to attract and entrap positively charged pollutants; and zeolite, which Hamilton Beach markets as specifically intended to reduce pet odors. Zeolite is a mineral commonly found in laundry detergents, water purifiers, and cat litter. For details about which models use which methods, see below.

Price Range of Available Air Purifiers

Hamilton Beach's air cleaners are mostly quite affordable when compared to the average prices of other cleaners. The most expensive product runs to about $300, but the others can be purchased for between about $80 and $160. They can be bought directly from Hamilton Beach's website at http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/air-care-air-purifiers.html

.

Replacement HEPA filters cost about $40 to $50 when bought direct from Hamilton Beach and should last for approximately one year. Replacement carbon filters are around $15 for a three-pack, with each filter lasting about three months. New UV bulbs are also $15, and last for a year. As it is a large company with a widespread presence in North America, Hamilton Beach products can also be found in many other places.

Some of Hamilton Beach's air cleaners are notable for their auto-adjusting fans which change speed on their own in response to how polluted the environment is. Some customers, however, have complained about the noise made by the fans.
