Suited for a 10-by-11-foot room, this air purifier from Holmes improves the quality and freshness of the atmosphere in your home. The purifier stands upright or lies flat, is quiet in operation, and features three power settings. An optional ionizing function improves performance. The unit uses a HEPA filter to trap 99% of typical airborne particles, while an activated carbon filter removes odors from the air. Both filters are accessed through a pop-off cover, and sliding switches control the settings. The unit’s durable plastic housing features Microban protection, which guards the product against microbial growth, such as mold, mildew, and bacteria.

3 Speed Settings

Choose from 3 cleaning speeds to keep the air fresh and pure inside your home. Select a lower speed while your at home for continued purification with less ambient noise. Select a higher speed while away from home for maximum purification.

Optional Ionizer

Negative Ions bind with airborne smoke, dust, and pollen to form larger particles that are more easily captured by the filters. When turned on, the Ionizer will make a soft, but audible, crackling sound. This is normal and indicates the Ionizer is working.

Available in: Smoke Grabber, Allergen Remover, Total, Performance Plus, and Odor Eliminator
