    Extending the life of the expensive filters

    I have had this product for two years and overall have been very pleased. My only complaint was that I needed to replace the HEPA filters more frequently than "advertised" and they are EXPENSIVE! I was speaking to a friend of mine who does HVAC installation and he suggested that I purchase a 14x25x1 HEPA 1900 Rated Air Filter and tape it to the outside of the machine as a pre-filter. WHOLA!!! A 14x25x1 Filtrete 1900 Microfiltrate HEPA filter costs approximately $20.00. I cut it to fit the intake area, and taped it around the sides with duct tape. Yes - it is ugly. But I have not had to replace the internal filters in over a year. I replace the 14x25x1 filter every 3 months. Interestingly - you can actually watch the outside filter get increasing dirty each day - which lets me know if I need to change it sooner or can go a little longer. THE AIR FLOW THROUGH THE SYSTEM IS NOT REDUCED, nor is there an increased workload on the motor to overcome the additional filter. The net result is a much improved filtration of air, and amuch reduced annual costs of filters.

    I live in in 50+ yo house. I used to wake up nauseated, and my family exhibited chronic coughing. Within an hour, we discerned a marked decrease in respiratory distress.l Now, I have one in each bedroom, and in the family room. Noise? Certainly better than us all hacking non stop at night! BTW, don't let the HEPA filters clog! The carbon filters function quite well as "pre-filters," extending the main HEPA filters' life, and reducing the maintenance cost from $80 a month to $12!

    I would describe my self as extremely allergic, to just about everything, especially cats!!! I take allergy medications always did a decent job, however my wife wanted a cat and for whatever reason she tricked me into getting it. WORST DECISION EVER! my life was a living nightmare for the first month having it, it effected our relationship, I looked like a drug addict because my eyes were always puffed up and red and itchy! I was sneezing non stop, my throat would close up, I was'nt able to sleep. It was a nightmare to say the lease! allergy pills did'nt seem to work that well, we went out on a limb buying this as a last resort if it did'nt work I told her we had to get ride of the cat, I read reviews on REAL hepa air purifiers and they were all $600 plus dollar and there is no way I would ever spend that type of money. From the first few hours we had this on I noticed a HUGE difference, ever since I have been fine. This thing saved my life!

    You will fall in love with this this the first time you use it but as soon as you have to replace the filters for the first time you mine as well be buying a brand new unit. This unit requires 2 filters each which are around 20 bucks a piece but you can by a 2 pk for about 34 bucks then on top of that you will need the carbon filters that come in a box of 4 they are 10 bucks. Point being you are better off buying a unit with a permanent washable filter. This thing is a money trap if you want you use it all year round.

    This HEPA purifier is great! I've struggled with allergies all my life. My husband is lucky enough not to have any allergies. My doctor had been recommending for years that I purchase a HEPA air purifier for my bedroom, but I just could not justify the price, and I figured my allergies would always be the way they have always been. After looking at the HEPA filters online at Wal-Mart I decided to buy this model and I couldn’t be happier. The first night we used it my husband and I both woke up and exclaimed to each other, “My nose isn’t stuffy!” The unit is a great price and is a reliable brand. I did my research before buying & Holmes got the best consumer reviews. About an hour before bed we turn it on the highest setting (#4) and let it run. When we’re ready for bed we turn it down to the lowest setting (#1) while we sleep. I was concerned about the square footage the unit said it cleaned as we have an open floor plan (our bedroom is about 400 sq. feet) but I don’t feel like we need a larger unit. I cannot tell you what a difference it has made for my allergies! I wake up with a clear head, feeling great. My next step is to purchase a smaller one for my office. I have already told my mom, sister and grandmother they are getting this air purifier for Christmas, I think even those without allergies (like my husband) can benefit from this unit.

    • A. I do not close my bedroom door when I run the allergen remover, although it may help to keep the air rotating better, but do you always have the door closed or do you keep it open anyway? If you close the door to clean the air and leave it open after then the out-of-room air will mix with the in-room air. If you clean your entire home with the allergen remover then leave the door open. If you run your A/C you do not need to run your allergen remover. Just don't buy cheap A/C filters. Look for A/C filters that have a good rating, although, they will cost more. I always bought cheap A/C filters until I was diagnosed with allergies within the last year. After buying the allergen remover a few weeks ago I learned that my allergies are much better and do not need to take allergy medicines. Also, my daughter and cat stopped sneezing all the time. I will buy good quality A/C filters from now on and not use my allergen remover when summer is here because I use my central A/C unit. I do not think running both units will make a difference except in the price of electricity used. I hope this helps, good luck.

    • A. I have two going upstairs 24/7 (2 bedrooms and a bathroom) With the air conditioner on or the furnace heat blowing......my purifiers always on. I do not close my bedroom doors or any of the doors. Before I got the second purifier I always left the door open with the single purifier as well.

    • A. Of course this filter is designed for small rooms like a bedroom. Of course it will be most efficient with the door closed. If you are referring to central A/C I doubt that would have an impact. Nor would a window unit for that matter. Its just a filter that filters air, specs are listed on the box.

    • A. If you have air coming into the room through an open door or your air conditioning system, this unfiltered air will replace some of the filtered air, though I expect an open door would be the least problematic. Just experiment to find the best balance between comfortable temperature and good air.

    • A. You don't have to have the door closed, but if you do, it filters the air in your bedroom exclusively. I have mine in our main room which includes the living room, kitchen and dining room. The kids are constantly leaving their bedroom doors open and it doesn't seem to make a difference in the air quality when they do. However, if you prefer to only filter your bedroom air, I would keep the door closed. You will be able to keep it at a lower setting if you do. I don't think the AC makes a difference. If anything, it probably helps to filter the air if you have a good filter.

    • A. DO NOT BELIEVE the answer that says it will remove toxins. HEPA FILTERS DO NOT REMOVE TOXINS. The manufacturer would be wise to reinforce this so that someone doesn't die from toxins, thinking that this unit will remove them.

    • A. This will not remove odors, unless it has a carbon filter element in it, and the literature doesn't say it has one. There is a difference between an air filter and an air purifier. This is a filter only and as such only removes particles (pollen and similar that will cause alergies.

    • A. To an extent. The only type of filter that really removes smoke is carbon. However, these Holmes units will filter out some of the smoke and smell because some of the nasty, deadly toxins in cigarette smoke are large enough to be blocked by HEPA filters.
      by EdBiscane7/31/2015
      Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)
      Was this answer helpful?
    • A. As you may be aware, cigarette smoke consists of 400+ substances, some of them particulates and some of them gasses. A HEPA filter will do a good job of removing the particulates though, obviously, it takes time for all of the air in the room to be run through the filter, even after the smoking stops. And HEPA filters are not cheap. The other components of cigarette smoke are gasses such as carbon monoxide and, yes, nicotine. Unfortunately, gas molecules are too small to be affected by a filter. They will go right through it, just like oxygen and the other components of regular air. So a HEPA filter will definitely improve the air for your friends, but it will not do a complete job, however long you run it. What you might want to do during warm weather that would remove both particulates and gasses is to open two windows. One is for air intake. The other one is on the opposite side of the room or the building with a large fan in it facing outward. This set-up will draw fresh air in as it removes smoky air. Another option is to get an ozone generator or a combination filter and generator. Ozone reacts with chemicals in the air to deactivate them and is quite effective with cigarette smoke. I don't know if it attacks all of the components of smoke and would guess that it does not. Also, a good quality generator can be expensive, though you don't need to constantly replace parts as with a filter. However, you do need to be very careful with ozone since it is just as happy to react with your lungs and cause irritation and damage to them. Use it sparingly and monitor it closely. Bottom line: there is no complete fix for cigarette smoke in the air. So, do I need to say that cutting down or quitting would be a huge favor, not only to your friends and their health, but to your own health and pocketbook?

    • A. In my experience, when I was cooking and the burner started smoking really bad, I turned the air purifier on the highest setting and it got rid of the smoke smell within minutes. Normally I would open all the windows to let the smoke out and it would take a long time. I love this air purifier. It has made my house smell so much better!

    • A. Yes, simply get a paper clip (not the tiny ones but regular sized) pull one side of the clip straight out and insert it into the hole by the light that is on (either the red for the hepa or the yellow for the carbon) this should turn the light off. Note. Just because the light comes on it does not necessarily mean you MUST change the filters...I simply vac mine out till they get too worn to vac anymore. Just simply insert the straight end of the clip into the hole and it is designed to shut off. I am sure the company would love to have you buy new filters each time, but I have been doing this for some time now and it is working great However, eventually you will need to switch filters when they get too thin or worn.

    • A. You can simply ignore it or reset it. It is simply a timer based thing, nothing to do with the actual condition of any filters. If you notice next to the lights there are tiny holes. FInd a paper clip or similar and gently poke inside the holes. It might take several tries. There are teeny buttons in there that rest the timer circuit. Mine flash all the time, once in a while I'll reset em. P.S. Google is your freind when trying to find lost manuals.
