Holmes HAP9726B-U True HEPA Allergen Remover

Screen Shot 2014-05-25 at 10.32.46 AMYears ago I bought my first air purifier, and ever since then I’ve been a big fan of this category of products. They really do make a difference in my home. They make the air feel fresher and more energizing, and make life indoors feel more enjoyable. This is especially true during the long winters, or for the duration of the allergen season in the spring.

This is my first Holmes air purifier, and so far I have been really pleased with its design and operation. It was relatively easy to set up, although I would have appreciated a bit more information on how to properly install the filters. One of the main distinctive advantages of this air purifier is that it can be placed almost anywhere, since it makes the air flow through the top, instead of the side. The purifier creates a fair amount of humming noise, though, even at the lowest settings. If you are not bothered by it then this might not be such a major issue, but it can detract from watching the TV for instance.

The purifier seems to do a good job of clearing the air my room. After a few hours of operation you could sense some of the ionized “plasticky” scent that one associates with the air-clearing devices. The purifying effects can be the most noticeable if you leave the room, or even more preferably the house, for a few hours after the initially setting the device on. When you return home you will be greeted with a very fresh air feeling – a definite sign of the improved air quality.

Overall this is a pretty good air purifier. I would recommend it to almost anyone, but especially to those who spend many hours indoor and to the allergy sufferers. This purifier could really make a difference in your life.
