Airflow performance and applicable area

Powered by a pre-filter, HEPAtech filter, UVC light and Photocatalitic Oxidizer, this 4 in 1 medium tower air purifier is great at handling a lengthy list of airborne pollutants and bacteria within an applicable area of 12 m2 (124 sq. ft.). Ideal for small bedroom, kitchen and offices. While the 3 fan speed does provide adequate performance at small area, it does generate a great amount of noise at higher speed that some might find it irritating.

Final thoughts on Hunter Air Purifier 30836

Credit to Hunter air purifiers in making a 4-in-1 total Air Purification system within a very affordable price. With its comprehensive filtration solution, pollutants such as dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, smoke and odor will not be able to by-pass the air purifier. However, it is not strong enough to deal with persistent pollutants including chemicals and odor. The lack of some useful features also might be a downer and with the noisy operation might be the final straw for some.

In conclusion......

  • Good starting price.
  • Washable pre-filter.
  • HEPAtech filter.
  • UVC germicidal light with Photocatalitic Oxidizer.
  • 5 years warranty.
  • Lack of practical features.
  • Weak applicable area.
  • Noisy operation.
