Round so it draws air in from all directions, this portable air purifier employs two filters and a separate ionizer to remove smoke, pollen, dust, animal dander, dust mites, molds, bacteria, viruses, and odors. Especially helpful for people with asthma or allergies, the purifier contains a true HEPA filter that is at least 99.97 percent effective at trapping tiny particles. First, a prefilter captures larger particles like lint, dust, and pollen. Then an ionizer, operated by a separate control, handles smaller particles. The cleaner measures 10-1/2 inches high and 16 inches front to back, is recommended for closed rooms up to 186 square feet, and operates at three speeds. The HEPA filter usually lasts at least one year, and the prefilter will last three to six months. The purifier carries a two-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

a nice, quiet, workhorse! I have 3 of these units in my 700 square foot condo --- one doubles as a fan blowing cool air into the bedroom area. I love the ionizer, which helps keep the odors down from my pets, as well as the dander from them, and the HEPA filters seem to really catch the small stuff, and last a long time - several years, though I vacuum them gently about 6 times a year.
The replacement filters are available online on the Holmes website, and customer service has been excellent - they allowed me to "trade in" an older unit for a small fee, for a newer one with the improved GE motor....more info
Cannot find REPLACEMENT filters!! I was interested in this item until I researched further. Even Holmes Family Care website does not offer replacements for this model. I will reorder the hepa filter on my older unit, rather than buy this new. This is an important consideration with these systems, if you can't replace filters the system is useless....more info
Best buy for the price With given price, this air filter is the best buy. Especially, the 360 degree air-intake is a feature I like the most....more info
