As a manufacturer of all sorts of air quality products Bionaire understand the importance of being able to breathe easy, no matter what size space you have. For smaller areas, they have brought to the market the BAP1412-U Air Purifier. Its tower design helps save floor space and it will purify the air in a room of up to 80 square feet. Aesthetics have not been missed either as this unit has a design that won’t look out of place.
The Bionaire BAP1412-U uses a patented PERMAtech HEPA filter that will never need replacing. It will remove 99% of airborne pollutants such as pollen, dust and pet dander that are as smalls as 2 microns.
The consumer can benefit from 3 fan speeds for ease of use, and an optional ionizer which further enhances particle filtration.
Given its compact size and quiet operation (when on the lowest setting), this air purifier is perfect for a child’s bedroom, home office or other small living areas.
What We Liked
- Space Saving
The tower design of this model will save floor space. It has also been developed with aesthetics in mind and will not look out of place against many types of décor.
- Variable Fan Speeds
With 3 fan speeds, this air purifier will set to work on cleaning the air in a heavily polluted environment of up to 80 square feet. The lowest setting offers quiet operation for overnight use.
- Easy to Maintain
Bionaire have made the filter within the BAP1412-U to last a lifetime. It will never need replacing and can easily be cleaned by using the brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner.
- PERMAtech Filter
Using a patented HEPA filtration system, the BAP1412-U will remove 99% of airborne particles that are as small as 2 microns. Pollutants such as pollen, dust and pet dander will be a thing of the past.
What We Didn't Like
- Bright Light
When the BAP1412-U is purifying the air it does emit a blue light which some have found to be an annoyance when in use overnight.
This unit helps with allergy symptoms but they will not be cured. Bionaire have produced this model to help keep their air clean and it’s not targeted towards those that suffer from ailments such as asthma.
Considering the Bionaire BAP1412-U is priced at just under $50, it’s a very good buy. It has been revered for its quiet operation, which is perfect for bedrooms or other areas where noise can be an issue. It’s also very effective at removing odors such as perfumes or food smells, but only when the ionizer is in use.
Whilst this unit will alleviate allergy symptoms adequately, it is no way meant to be a cure.
