Bissell Expands Air Purifier Assortment

A year after entering the air purification category, Bissell is expanding its LifeStyle line of air purifiers to include the air320 and air220 units.

According to the company, the air320 purifies up to 1,000 square feet per hour and is equipped with a commercial-grade DC motor. The air220 covers up to 800 square feet per hour and has an AC motor.

Both purifiers provide three stages of filtration with a pre-filter, activated carbon filter and a high-efficiency filter that is said to capture more than 99% of 0.3-micron particles or larger when used on the lowest fan setting, including pollen, dust, smoke, hair and dander. Also included with both air purifiers is Bissell’s unique CirQulate system, which allows the device to automatically adjust itself to meet the exact air quality needs within the home and provide indoor air quality feedback.

“Driven by U.S. consumers focusing on health and wellness, general air quality concerns and the rise of pet ownership, our proprietary research highlighted areas of opportunity from the current competition in the market,” said Stephanie Harvey, associate director of Bissell Business Ventures.

Bissell also launched MYair, a smaller air purifier designed for the personal spaces in a home or office. The MYair is designed to easily be placed onto a desk, nightstand or tabletop and features a combination high-efficiency and activated carbon filter. The MYair is also ozone-free, with a fan that can be set to three different settings: sleep, low and high.

The air320 and air220 will retail for $329.99 and $229.99, respectively. The MYair is available for a suggested retail price of $89.99.
