Customer Questions & Answers

Humidifier and Air Filter

Is this product like a humidifier?
Asked by: Nosey
HI Nosey- This is Sue at GE Appliances. We are excited to hear of your interest! The Air Purifier uses a True HEPA Filter to maximize the efficiency of air cleaning. It removes 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns or larger that pass through the filter. The permanent Pre-Filter prolongs the life of your 99.97% True HEPA Filter by trapping large particles in the air initially. A humidifier is used to increase the humidity (moisture) in a room.

Air Purifier is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful - Working as expected This is a wonderful product i ever purchased. After so much browsing and analysis finally i bought this product and it's really worth it. For the first few days please keep all the windows open and run it otherwise it will smell due to the new fliter. Afetr 3 days, it's perfect PURE air..all the time, very proffessional design and works great. Very quite too in low settings. Don't buy any cheap or high cost purifier. This is it. Buy it.. you won't regret.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DEPLORABLE This GE Air Purifier was an obviously returned itemed and re-sold to me. Upon opening this carton, it was clear this was previously owned as there was dried compound on the electrical cord, missing remote control, poorly packed, and the outside boxing was re-taped over the original. Tomorrow, I will return this for cash and close my account with Home Depot. I will now take my business to Lowes as this is the second time HD has sold me a used item and this is now two strikes your out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NIce and EASY Only had this product for 2 days but I LIKE IT ! Easy to set up and the remote is very handy. I have 3 dogs that are allowed in the bedroom during the day but not at night. SO I run the air purifier for about 2 hours before bedtime and it seems to work great. A little noisy on high but I set it on low speed and timed and forget it. Great so far !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all around Great purifier. Fairly quite, easy on the eyes and effective. I use it for dust and pets. There are more premium purifiers out there but for the price and effect this is a great unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't be used in a bedroom I purchased this for my bedroom, but it's so loud, that it can't be used there. I put it in my family room, but if the fan is on 3, it's so loud that it interferes with hearing the television. I wouldn't recommend it because of the noise level, and I don't think it works as well as the other type of air purifier.
