Feature Info
Carbon Filter Captures large particles, household odors, pet odors, cooking odor and cigarette smoke.
AeraSafe Antimicrobial Treatment Provides built-in protection from the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mildew, and fungi on the True HEPA filter.
PlasmaTrue Technology Creates an ionized field to help safely remove airborne pollutants.


Tower design has proven itself to be very efficient in-house air filtration. You can place this small but powerful air purifier in any room. But it is recommended to use AeraMax 100 in rooms of 100 to 200 square feet.

In such rooms, the performance of the air purifier is the best, and the air quality will be on the highest possible level. The best recommendation to place an air purifier is near the source of pollution if there is no clear source of pollution then placing it in the middle of the room will provide the best quality air in all parts of the room.

Powerful Air Filtration System

Many well-known brands in the air purification business use True HEPA filters to filter the air. Fellowes also built AeraMax 100 with a true HEPA filter to provide fast filtration and the ability to remove most of the airborne particles known to man.

The Fellowes AeraMax 100 also has a carbon prefilter. This filter will remove large particles that may clog the true HEPA filter, but also the carbon filter is used to remove bad odors from the room. Any kind of smells, odors, fumes, or anything that is unpleasant in the air will be removed with a carbon filter.

After the carbon filter comes the True HEPA filter which is capable of removing 99.97% of airborne particles. True HEPA filters are recommended for the patient who suffers from asthma or allergic reactions. With such a filter you can make sure everything dangerous is removed from the air. The True HEPA filter can remove pollen, mold spores, dust, and other particles that can trigger allergic reactions.

The True HEPA filter is not the last line of the defense against invasive germs and airborne particles, the AeraMax 100 also has the AeraSafe Antimicrobial Treatment. This exclusive technology is included to prevent any kind of bacteria, mildew, or fungi grow on a true HEPA filter. AeraSafe prevents all types of bacteria and in that way is an ideal choice for people who are very sensitive to colds, flu, and other viruses.

PlasmaTrue Technology is another patented part of the AeraMax 100 air purifier which can be only found in Fellowes products. The primary purpose of the PlasmaTrue Technology is to generate an ionization field that can then help capture even more particles. The ionization process is well known in air purification systems as a very useful method of capturing the smallest possible airborne particles. The only problem with ionization is the ozone generator. And since AeraMax 100 is AAFA certified, then you can be safe and know that this air purifier will not create harmful ozone levels in the room.

Automatic Work

AeraMax 100 can work automatically. It can adjust the fan speed by the level of pollution. If the air in the room is terrible, the air purifier will work faster and harder to clean it, and if the air is of the highest possible quality, then the air purifier will be on stand-by mode. By choosing automatic work, you can save money on electricity bills.


The display on the front side of the AeraMax 100 will tell you everything. You will know when the air in the room is bad and then quickly choose the automatic cleaning which I can highly recommend or if you wish you can select the desired speed.

On display, you will also get notified of carbon and true HEPA filter replacement. Usually, a True HEPA filter lasts for 12 months and a carbon filter around 3 months. Carbon filters are not expensive, and it is wise to change them often because if you do that, then the odor elimination process will work at its finest.

Filter Replacement

In this air purification system, you can replace two filters separately. True HEPA filter which needs to be replaced around every 12 months comes with AeraSafe Antimicrobial treatment. These features just say that the new filter you can buy from Fellowes is as good as the original one. It has all the abilities and powers just like the original.

Carbon filters need to be replaced sooner, like every 3 months. But if you are living in a place that is filled with bad odors, then you will probably wish to replace the carbon filter sooner. If you have a smoker in the house, then you will be good at replacing the filter every 2 months. In that way, a bad nasty smell from cigarettes will be removed faster. Carbon filters come in a package of 4 carbon filters, and the price is not high. Because of that, I can highly recommend everyone who has concerns about odors in the house to buy extra carbon filters as soon as possible.

The replacement filters, as well as the whole AeraMax 100, are certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This certificate means that with this air purifier you can be safe from allergies and asthma attacks. For best usage use the air purifier in a room smaller than 200 square feet. If you have a larger room, then you should consider buying two air purifiers.

Pros and Cons

To revise, here are the advantages and disadvantages of the AeraMax 100 air purifier:

  • Affordable Price
  • Usable in small to medium rooms.
