    Oh my gosh! These have made a world of difference

    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!

    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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • I have one in a bedroom with no door and it works great. It will still make a difference. It will filter any molds or dust that will enter throught the AC unit.

    • The more isolated the filter is, the better it works. You do not have to shut the door to work however. Use common sense.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    The Hepa light on my unit keeps flashing red. I've changed all carbon filters and hepa filters but no luck. I can't find my owners manual. Does anyone know what this means?

    • Reset it. Insert a paper clip into the approiate hole near the light. These instructions should be inside the door where the filters are located.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • From the manual - After replacing filters, reset the filter life indicator by inserting a small object (such as a paper clip) into the hole below the filter change light marked reset.

    • The Holmes True HEPA Allergen Remover Model HAP726-U is good up to 256 sq ft or a 16'x16' room. I use this model for all my rooms and keep the speed at different settings (1-4) depending on the size of the room. I run the allergen remover longer in a larger room than in a smaller room. I hope this helps, good luck.

    • I have one in a 16 x 15 playroom and one in a larger area with a loft. They both work for the spaces. Both aread are carpeted. I have the smaller one in a bedroom but it only can do half the job since it has half the filters.
