Pre-Filter And HEPA Filter
The pre-filter helps the main HEPA filter by catching particles larger than 20 microns in size (0.002mm). This leaves the HEPA filter clear to catch 99.7% of particles 0.3 microns large as true HEPA filters must do.
The filter are washable.
The control panel is situated on top of this Homedics air purifier. The soft touch control buttons are formed in a nice circular shape that makes negotiating the control panel very easy.
The ‘On’/Off’ button is located at the bottom of the control panel. Upon turning the air purifier on the unit will start to operate in its low setting. Press the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ button (at 8 o’clock on the control panel) to change the fan speed.
To the right of the ‘On’/’Off’ button is the UV-C Bulb control. The UV-C light kills bacteria, germs and viruses. Simply press the UV-C button once to turn the light on and again to turn the light off.
The UV-C light ensures that the air is cleaner and healthier than air purifiers without a UV-C light or ioniser.
The Homedics air purifier contains a 4 setting auto timer with 2, 4, 8 and 12 hour settings.
Electronic Filter Reset
This Homedics tower air purifier comes with an electronic filter reset as well as UVC reset. If any of the two items need attention then the control panel will tell you.
3 Speed Settings
The Homedics oscillating tower air purifier features 3 air cleaning speed settings which is typical of the appliance. The settings are low, medium and high.
CADR figures are a basic way of comparing different air purifiers. Those with the higher figures are regarded as being better. Note that not all air purifiers have been awarded CADR figures.
The Homedics Oscillating Tower Air Purifier CADR figures are:
- Smoke 122
- Pollen 172
- Dust 155
The pollen rating is quite high so if you suffer from hay fever or other allergies such as rhinitis the Homedics Tower Air Purifier may well be worth buying.
Top of the range air purifiers would normally contain an ioniser, which helps to eliminate positive ions in the air making breathing easier, or a multi-stage filtration system which may feature UVC elements which kill additional bacteria, germs and viruses.
Homedics have ditched the ioniser and have installed a UVC light as a seperate component from the filter.
The light may be controlled from the control panel on the actual air purifier or from the remote control.
The benefit of using a UVC light over an ioniser is that no ozone is produced.
The remote control is such a handy feature which allows you to change the air purifiers setting either from your bed or sofa without having to get up!
The Homedics remote control is laid out logically and you won’t even have to consult the manual to understand how it works.
The controls are clearly laid out and from top to bottom they are:
- Fan Speed
- UV-C Light
One CR2025 3V battery is included with the Homedics remote control.
The typical guarantee or warranty in the air purifier sector is 2 years however Homedics must be proud of the quality of their air purifiers as they have given this oscillating tower air purifier a guarantee of 3 years!
- 1 x HoMedics HEPA Tower Air purfier 85m²
- Remote control
- Instructions for Use
- 3 year guarantee
Several reviewers have noted that if you place the air purifier facing directly towards you the air actually gets pushed out of the sides of the units. This is just how the blowers have been positioned and does not mean your unit is faulty. You can simply use the oscillating feature to keep the air moving around. you could also slightly angle the tower air purifier as well.
You can also use this air purifier as a fan but it would obviously be weaker than using a direct fan.
We like this Homedics Oscillating Tower Air Purifier as it has some cool features.
Due to the high CADR figure for pollen we feel that this air purifier is suitable for those suffering from airborne allergies rather than those who life near busy roads and are trying to keep exhaust gases down etc.
With the 3 year guarantee you can purchase the Homedics air purifier with confidence.
