Air Purifier HEPA
The Holmes air purifier HEPA line is their best. The expert reviews on
the HEPA type air cleaners by Holmes are not as good. Read the full
filter. Holmes offers a budget line of air purifiers. While their line of HEPA-type air purifiers is
cheaper, the only ones worth buying are the true HEPA air
They have a few options in the true-HEPA line of purifiers. They are
all variations of the Holmes True HEPA allergen remover purifiers.
is the Holmes HEPA mini tower purifier, which is the smallest and only
rated for an 9x9 ft. room. It is not very powerful and I do not
recommend this small purifier, even for a small room as it is just too
under-powered to do a good job.
Their largest Holmes HEPA air purifier
is rated for rooms up to 418 sq. ft. A nice feature is the filter
change indicator. This will help alert you to change the filter when
needed. Since it does have a HEPA filter and the filter only costs
under $25 to replace, it is a decent budget buy.
If you have severe health issues, even if you are on a budget, there are better ones that will help. Try the Honeywell 50250 purifier for a powerful budget option.
Why don't I recommend the Holmes HEPA-type air purifiers?
If it is not a HEPA air purifier, it will allow the small air particles
to pass through and recirculate into the room. These small particles
are the germs, virusus, bacteria, pollen, and allergy/asthma causing
particles. The larger particles that the filter does capture will
mainly just help reduce dust.
If you want an air purifier just
for reducing the dust in your house and don't need it for health
reasons, a HEPA-type would be fine. But really, I'd say spend just a
little more and get one that will provide healthier home air too! Who
couldn't be just a little healthier?
As expected, the Holmes air
purifier HEPA line is acceptable since it is so inexpensive, but not
very noteworthy in the world of air purifiers. It will do a fair job,
but don't expect miracles.
