Hunter has gone one step further in terms of keeping the air in your home clean and free of allergen promoting particles with their 30707 PermaLife air purifier. As would be expected from this manufacturer, design has not been forgotten. This unit is sleek, comes in black/silver and will blend seamlessly into any décor. It’s compact enough that it will happily sit on a desk or table top, but it certainly doesn’t disappoint in performance.
One of the best features about the PermaLife air purifier is it's one of the only brands in this price range on the market that offers Microban anti-bacterial protection. In fact, this technology can only be found with Hunter and it means the unit reduces the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause unpleasant odors and reduce the life of the filter.
The HEPA filtration system with this model will capture and remove close to 100% of airborne particles such as dust, pollen, smoke and other allergy promoting irritants that can reduce indoor air quality. This air purifier is very aptly named PermaLife because it has a filter that needs little maintenance and will never need replacing.
What We Liked
- Clean and Fresh Air
The Hunter 30707 air purifier is fitted with an ionizer that enhances overall air cleaning performance and keeps the air fresh. You can switch this off when it’s not needed.
- Overall Healthy Air Quality
This model will remove up 99.97% of allergy promoting particles such as pollen, dust and smoke.
- Unique Microban Technology
The life of the filter will be extended due to this technology (only available from Hunter) as it reduces the build-up of mold, mildew and bacteria. This also means no nasty odors.
- 3 Whisper Quiet Speeds
With 3 speeds to choose from, you opt for a level of purification that suits you.
- Easy Maintenance
Your unit will alert you when the filter needs to be cleaned and you also benefit from a replaceable carbon pre-filter that lasts at least 3 months.
What We Didn't Like
- Loud on the Highest Fan Speed
There have been complaints this unit is fairly audible when on the highest setting. However, due to its efficiency, there is little need for this setting once it has cleaned the air.
- Expensive Filters
Although the HEPA filter will never need replacing, the carbon pre-filters can be a little pricey.
Hunter has done a fairly good job with their 30707 PermaLife air purifier. It’s more stylish than many other brands of this size on the market and the manufacturer has managed to combine the latest technology with compact design. The mere fact it comes with Microban anti-bacterial technology is testament to how good the product is. It will definitely help people who suffer with allergies, but we believe the unit is a little overpriced.Review by AirReflect ©
