Product Overview

The Vornado AC500 Whole Room Air Purifier uses true HEPA filtration, one of the most effective filters available, to remove up to 99.97% of airborne allergens down to .3 micron. The Vornado Whole Room Air Purifier actively circulates and filters all the air throughout a room. Without circulation, the air cleaner is only cleaning the immediate area around the unit, relying on general motion to push air through the unit. The AC500 uses two combination HEPA/carbon filters to trap Dust, Pollen, Pet Dander, Smoke, Bacteria, Mold Spores, Dust Mites and more. The carbon pre-filters both absorbs odors and traps larger particles. When in ‘auto mode’, advanced dust sensing technology detects the level of dust in a room, fluctuating the cleaning cycle up or down, depending on the air quality. Features 4 speeds, push button electronic controls, filter replacement indicator, sleep mode and industry leading 5 year limited warranty.
  • True HEPA Filtration - HEPA filtration captures 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns or larger
  • High output performance - A powerful motor and radial blower allows for whole room air purification
  • 4 airflow settings - Tailor the amount of airflow to fit your needs
  • Advanced dust sensing technology - Monitors air quality and automatically adjusts output to create ideal room filtration
  • Optimum Output - Grill outlet is located on the top of the unit for whole room clean air distribution
  • Push button electronic controls
  • Filter replacement indicator for both HEPA and carbon
  • Sleep mode - Light sensor automatically quiets operation in low light conditions
  • Quiet Operation - Enjoy minimal operation noise, without sacrificing performance
  • Sleek and modern styling fits in most room decors
  • Minimal Maintenance - Filters are quick and easy to replace
  • CADR Rating: 213
  • 5 Years warranty

Questions & Answers

Filters?

Which filters need changed and how often? Thanks
Asked by: Cece
You will need the MD1-0022 HEPA filter (replace every 12 months with continuous use) and the MD1-0023 carbon filter (replace after 4-6 months of regular usage). They're very easy to replace, but of course the costs add up if you run the purifier often.

AC500 Full Size Whole Room True HEPA Air Purifier is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best air purifier in the market! The first impression was great because all the graphics on the box look impecable, great quality on the pictures, loved how the key points about the product are showed with pictures and very detailed. I think the box is very important when shoppers are deciding on which product, I also liked the product even before I opened it because the product is not the typical box shaped air purifier, instead I opened it to find a modern and sleek Vornado Air Purifier. I really like how the buttons are silver it just complements the black of the air purifier. 5 years guarantee yes please I'll take it! We been actually using the Vornado Air Purifier in the kids play room, since the air doesn't flow as good as in the rest of the house it is the perfect room. I love that is so easy to operate that even the kids know how to use it. Let's just say we noticed a difference after 30 minutes of running, even my 5 years old noticed a difference. To me the fact that this Vornado Air Purifier was able to get rid of the musty smell is just a miracle, we tried others and they didn't work. We just have it running on the lowest speed, we actually tried it on the highest but is too loud, but guess no need for that speed if the lowest one works great. Another great feature about it is that it tells you when to replace the HEPA and carbon filters, with my bad memory this is awesome. My husband and I noticed that the kids aren't sneezing as much as they use to, I'm sure is because the Vornado captures 99.97% of household contaminants like pollens and dust. I'll also like to mention that the size of the product is perfect and it looks great in the room, it just blends perfect. Overall we are extremely satisfied with our Vornado, for sure a product and brand that I'll recommend as many times as I can.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great after the plastic smell goes away Easy to set up out of the box and quick set up in the room. It is a bit big but it is not terribly loud. The only complaint I have is that when I first set it up and turned it on.....there was a strong smell of plastic that was coming out of it, and it was only when it was turned on. It lasted a good 2 to 3 days before it subsided....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gone Through Two in 12 months I first ordered this product in Jan, 2014. Two to three months after receiving the product, the fan began making loud squeaking noises. I called Vornado and they promptly replaced the original purifier that I ordered. Fast forward to November, 2014. The fan on the replacement unit has stopped working all together. The unit has power but the fan will not run. I'm calling Vornado again today hoping that I can just get a full refund. Since this is the second one that has gone bad in 11 months, I have no confidence in the product. I would not recommend purchase of this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm on my third Vornado 10 years ago I got two Vornado AQS35 heps purifiers. One motor finally becamse ezhausted and I replaced that unit with an AC500. Even better than the AQS35. Very quiet on Levl 1. To make a lond stury short, if you requires and want clean air to breath at home, Vornado is the right choice. Note: I always size units so that I never have to use more than 70% of capacity to get the job done. That.s why I use two and seldon go beyond Level 2 on my 5 speed AQS35. The AC500 is more complex but only has 4 levels and I donp' see myself going beyond Level 1 very often. In sizing this way you'll more likely, I believe, enjoy long productive ownership.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My air is clean and fresh thanks to Vornado! We've been using the Vornado AC500 True HEPA Air Purifier for about 3 weeks and I couldn't be happier. As a working mom of 4 sons who suffers from asthma, having clean filtered air is really important to me. This air purifier works great. The sleek design looks great in our bedroom and the easy to use control board was wonderful. It took less than 5 minutes to set up from the box. I love that I can program it for night time (special sleep setting-less powerful and quieter) and it automatically adjusts to daylight. We have a fairly large bedroom and it has done an excellent job of keeping the air clean and fresh. We haven't had to change a filter yet but it looks very simple to do. I am incredibly pleased with the Vornado Air Purifier and highly recommend it for use in anyone's home or business. It would be an excellent addition to a bedroom, living room or den area. It's the perfect air purifier for allergy and asthma sufferers.
