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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by accomplishes the job sufficiently The room I use it in is actually larger then the recommended room size & it does the job well. I was amazed by the amount of pet hair trapped in the filter! A good indication that it will help people with allergies. For pet owners in particular, I would suggest a once a week filter check to clean out the pet hair to keep unit running more efficiently. I like that it is very quiet and senses the amount particles in the air and then adjusts the motor speed to it - thus being a great energy saver! If you want fresher air to breathe then this unit will serve you well. August 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like it I have pollen allergy and when I was offered to try this product I was excited. I keep it in the bedroom to make sure the air is clean enough for me to sleep because Summer's can be pretty miserable. It does make a difference. I do not wake up in the middle of the night coughing and with stuffy nose. I like the way it is designed as well. 4 speed settings and a night time setting as well that makes the fan really quiet. We do not have a central air conditioner in the house that I can hook HEPA filter too so it is a great thing to have in an old home. August 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by To Get Air Any Fresher, You'll Have To Go To The Mountains When my True HEPA Air Purifier arrived, I decided to put it to the ultimate test straight out of the box- the pet's room. After all, if it couldn't handle the really tough job, then it probably wouldn't do the easier jobs. I placed the unit in the center of the room, plugged it in, and turned it on. Immediately, I could literally feel the particulate matter moving past my face as it was being removed from the air. A few hours later, you would never know that the pets were ever in that room. I moved it to other rooms in the house, and by day three, my whole house smelled fresh and clean. The unit is easy to operate, and the filters are easily removed and replace(an absolute must in my household.) The only drawback is that the unit is very loud when running on high speed. All in all, I would highly recommend the True HEPA Air Purifier. August 17, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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.... August 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this product We use this product daily in our living room. I have severe allergies and this does seem to help with them which for me is a plus. It runs very quietly can't even tell it's on. August 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I would definitely recommend this air purifier! I have to say that I was delighted to try this purifier through Viewpoints. I have been so disappointed with the ones on the market years ago, that I basically just gave up on these types of units. This probably wasn't a good idea since I have allergies, have had sinus surgeries, I have dogs and cats, kids, and I live in Texas with lots of dust and plant pollen all year long. I wasn't aware of the True HEPA Air purifier prior to trying it. Now that I was really easy to use-and even though I am a clean freak for dusting and sweeping and such, it's not like I could actually get stuff out of the air. It was easy to set up, it was way quieter than expected and it made a real difference especially with family that were visiting that have asthma secondary to allergies. My sister-in-law actually asked me if we got rid of the pets because the bedroom that they were sleeping in had the air purifier running in it. The purifiers aren't cheap...but if it works, it is worth it, and this one is worth it. I have a large house and will probably buy one for the master bedroom-the cats usually stay in there. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with allergies, pets, kids, etc. August 18, 2015
