Hamilton Beach 04383A True Air Purifier Review

A few years back, I was looking for an air purifier for my apartment to help with dust and allergens. After doing a lot of research, I decided to go with the Hamilton Beach True Air air purifier. I was able to get it through for about $50.

The TrueAir purifier comes with a permanent HEPA air filter that can be vacuum cleaned every 3 months or so. It is electrically powered and comes with 3 speed settings depending on how fast you want it to circulate the air. This model comes with a stand to set it up vertically or horizontally. It is easy to move around because it is not that heavy. The Hamilton Beach TrueAir purifier has a stylish look to it with curvy lines and a concealed fan. The color is off white with a light grey cover on the front.

Air Purifier Performance Review
Setting up the air filter was very easy. Basically all you have to do is take the filter out of the bag and then put it into the purifier. Next, you can snap on the stand and it is ready to go. I started out by trying each of the 3 settings: Whisper Clean, Medium, and Quick Clean. Whisper Clean is very quiet and has a mild breeze. Medium is a little more noisy but not loud. Quick Clean is the highest setting and moves air the fastest. It is somewhat loud, but not annoyingly loud. If you want to clean the air fast, go with the Quick clean. I usually use the Medium setting because is it a good mix of air circulation and sound level.

I put the air purifier on a movable stand so I can place it in different locations around the apartment. Hamilton Beach says that this model will clean 160 square feet of room air. I'm not sure how that can be tested, but to get a good clean, I will rotate the position and location of the filter to get good coverage overall.

So far I have been using it on average about a hour a day on the Medium setting. I have noticed that the HEPA filter has collected some dust already so it is filtering the air. I have not noticed much of a difference in air quality, but this is something that is difficult to measure.
Overall I am pretty happy with the Hamilton Beach TrueAir air purifier. It is reasonably priced, has good coverage, looks good on the outside, and has positive reviews from most customers who have used it. If you are looking for an air filter for a large room up to 160 square feet, check out this model by Hamilton Beach.

Long Term Update
I have had the air filter for several years now and it is still working good! Every month or so I clean out the filter using a vacuum hose extension which is very easy. I would recommend this air filter if you you are looking to get rid of dust and air particles in a small to medium sized room.
