Aprilaire is one of the biggest air purifier brands in the North America. Since 1954, the company has provided both personal and whole-house air cleaning solutions.

Aprilaire 2275 Price
The Aprilaire 2275 could be a better air purifier if it’s not for the price. At its official price tag, the air purifier simply doesn’t make much sense. It happens again for its bigger brother – the Aprilaire Clean9550 with its ridiculous high price for a HEPA-type air filter.
The air purifier industry has a lot to thank Aprilaire for; the whole-house air cleaners were classic. The powerful Aprilaire Allergy9550 and Aprilaire Allergy+Pet9550 were premium that impresses us a lot.
Unfortunately, though, its portable air purifier business is just scraping by, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Aprilaire 2275. It is tagged with the official price of $309 on Aprilaire website, and even if you get a much lower price from our deal, it is still ridiculous.
While there is no other Aprilaire air purifiers that offer more for less, the competition still blows it out of the water. Let’s take a look at the Medify MA-40, Rowenta Intense Pure Air XL PU6020, Airthereal AGH550 or Bissell air320, they all outperform in even much larger rooms.
Do you want to spend a lot for a simple, compact air purifier? If you still want an Aprilaire air purifier, you should get one from our deal, as the price can go as low as just $249.

Aprilaire 2275 Design and Size
The Aprilaire 2275, with durable, sturdy construction and simple, subtle design, isn’t a bad looking or feeling air purifier. I love the white color in this Aprilaire 2275, and it can make our bedroom much nicer.
Its body stands well with 4 legs, with the same quality and craftsmanship as even the bigger products like Aprilaire Allergy9550 or Aprilaire Allergy+Pet9550. Perhaps, the design is the spotlight of this Aprilaire 2275, leading to such high cost.
At only 13.75 inches in height and 11.9 inches in width, the Aprilaire 2275 is portable and compact. It runs a simple bottom-to-top air flow system concept, with a protective screen to act as pre-filter at the bottom, before the polluted air contacts with the HEPA filter.
This Aprilaire 2275 has an easy-to-use side mounted switch control, which the company stated that it’s toddler and pet proof. Well, I think it’s simple, but it can’t hide from curious eyes.
Still, the Aprilaire 2275 blends in perfectly like a small piece of furniture. It weighs only 13 lbs, and you can bring it anywhere in your home or office.

Aprilaire 2275 Filters
To make the Aprilaire 2275 simple enough, the American company only uses one filter for this system.
- HEPA filter – Aprilaire 2275 only uses a MERV-10 HEPA filter, which removes 98% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns like dust, pollen, dirt and pet dander.
Well, it seems Aprilaire doesn’t want to let us have True HEPA filter for a portable device. With the MERV 10 air filter, this Aprilaire 2275 has much lower performance, comparing with other air purifiers in the same price range. It had an efficiency of only 99%, in our test of 100 square feet. In comparison, it loses against any other air purifiers meant for small rooms in the same price range, like the Rowenta PU3040, Sharp FP-F50UW, Oransi OV200 or Oreck Airvantage.
The annual filter cost isn’t cheap, either. At $29, the filter replacement for Aprilaire 2275 can last for only 6 months, resulting in $58 for a full year.

Aprilaire 2275 Room Coverage
The Aprilaire 2275 does still manage to deliver a decent fan power, and the suggested room size for this air purifier is 256 square feet, by the manufacturer.
The ACH of Aprilaire 2275 is 2X to 4X. On highest speed, the air purifier can clean and replace the air 4 times per hour.
The CADR of Aprilaire 2275 is 103 Dust/ 53 Smoke/ 130 Pollen (cfm). Such fan power is insufficient to compete even in the sub-$150, and it doesn’t make any sense in $300 range.

Aprilaire 2275 Sound
With low fan power in mind it will come as no surprise that the Aprilaire 2275 is really silent and it allows you to run even on highest speed while sleeping. The average noise level of this air purifier is only 35 decibels (db), and I believe such sound level is even quieter than the library mode.
So to say, if you want to use the Aprilaire 2275 in bedroom or nursery, it can clean the air without waking you up.

Aprilaire 2275 Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.
Again, we don’t have an Aprilaire Energy Star air purifier, but the power consumption of this Aprilaire 2275 is still too low. It is only 35 watts on lowest speed, and 51 watts on highest speed.
If you run the Aprilaire 2275 for 8 hours each day, you need to pay $12.5 to $18 each year.

Aprilaire 2275 Additional Features

The Aprilaire 2275 Portable Air Purifier doesn’t make much sense to me, given the fact that it has a starting price at $300. Perhaps, making a competitive personal air purifiers is still a difficult task for this U.S-based company. You can look for Winix AM90, Honeywell HPA300 or Coway AP-1512HH at much cheaper price, and they all wipe the floor with it from a specs and real-world use point of view.
While its design isn’t bad, unless you can get this air purifier at at fantastic price, with such great alternatives available today, it’s a no from us.
