Clearing the air with Cli-Mate Air Purification System
Reviewing the Cli-Mate Air Purification System CLI-AP20.
Spring season has come and for those who suffer the heyfever it can be a very challenging time. The runny noise, irritating itchy eyes and the morning blocked noise can effect your effectiveness during the day. This is the very reason why I’ve done a bit of researching and have decided to give the Cli-Mate Air Purification System CLI-AP20 try and hope to ease the annoying symptom.
The Air Purification System CLI-AP20 is a small nice looking white unit. Pull the front lid off and tuck within that compartment is a hepa filter which Cli-Mate say it can remove 99.5% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. The activated carbon filter absorbs common household odours, VOCs, cigarette odours, chemical fumes and smoke.
It’s very easy to operate with 4 push buttons, and each time it is press there is a beeping noise. Obviously the power button turns on or off. Select the desire fan speed up to four modes, or let the unit do it with the auto selection and set a timer button to tell when to stop between one, four and eight hour intervals. It’s really that simple. The front top panel has several brightly lit clear blue lights to indicate which mode is activated however this can be annoying if you leave it on during the night while you sleep. There is not fancy data reading indicating the air quality, but do you really need that? It’ll depends if those analytical information if important to you.
This CLI-AP20 function by sucking the air into two side vent, processing it with the hepa filter and releasing the clean air back from a top opening at the back of the unit.
On the lowest setting the fan is very quiet spinning to a level of 28 dB. Crank up the fan speed and you’ll definitely hear the fan circulating air around. Since it is really a fan filtering air, it can make your room cool, perfect for a hot day but doesn’t make it ideal when it’s cold.
It’s great for a small size room any large then you’ll need to up-size the model for effectiveness. Close the door and windows and let Cli-Mate Air Purification System do it’s job. The main question, does it work. I would say yes it does help but it is not a solution for fix your heyfever symptoms unless your willing to lock yourself in the room forever. Works well and is handy to have around the house. Having used it for about 2 months now I have notice the dust in my room have reduced with me turning it three or four times a week when I’m in my room.
For a retail price of $229 AUD it is reasonable, however do note there are other brands that are cheaper and does a similar job. Logically thinking it is really a fan with a hepa fliter which is possible to make if you are in need of saving money. The unit are sold in most electronic homeware stores however with the hepa filter, you’ll need to purchase it directly from Cli-Mate. You clean the hepa filter up once a week and is recommended to replace it every 8 months costing about $50 AUD but that depends on how often you use it. Keep it running day and night your most likely needing a replacement sooner. This Cli-Mate air surification System comes with a 2 years warranty, given that is pretty well designed out of the box I’m pretty sure it won’t break down within that period.
