Great for removing cat odors! We got this air purifier when we moved and had to have the cat box in the kitchen. This thing made the difference between knowing when exactly our cat had gone, to not having a clue. It was just what we needed, no one wants their kitchen to smell like a cat box!...more info
Set it and forget it This is our second 30055. They do the job without issues. The original one now needs the fan started by placing the unit on high - but it has been in continuous use for 8 years. And we don't change the filter as often as we should....more info
Hunter HEPAtech This air purifier has been working great for me. I have another one I've had for 3 years now. Like all purifiers the filters are exspensive. It is cheapest to buy 3 filters at a time. The first two settings are very quit, but the high setting does sound like a box fan on medium speed if you are concerned about noice. I actually like it on high in the bedroom at night, I can't sleep without it running now....more info
Hunter HEPAtech 55 Three Speed Air Purifier 30055 I bought this for my newborns bedroom. When we moved into the house the bedroom reeked of perfume, despite the fact that the room was freshly painted and carpeted. After about 3 weeks of running the purifier in the room (full speed during the day, low at night) the smell has vanished. Still running the original filters (3 months) , about time to change them soon. This thing pushes a lot of air considering its small size, filters pop right in and it's nice and quiet on low. The Carbon pre-filter is great for filtering out smells as well....more info
