Product Overview

The Vornado AQS500 Whole Room Air Purifier uses the signature Vortex Action, exclusive to Vornado, to filter and circulate air throughout the entire room.

Created with the allergy suffer in mind, the AQS500 uses 2 allergen capturing filters to trap Pollen, Pet Dander, Bacteria, Mold Spores, Dust Mite Debris and Smoke Particles. The AQS500 Offers superior performance and near silent operation, as quiet as a personal desktop computer on low speed. Equipped with LED indicators that display personal settings, this air purifier features 3 speeds, timer, automatic shut-off and a change filter indicator to aid in the timely replacement of filters. 2 Filters included.

Whole Room Air Purifier with Vortex Technology is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this purifier ... I got this purifier because my girlfriend is allergic to dogs. I have an Akita lab mix so he's a 80lb dog. I put this in my bedroom by the door where he sleeps at and this thing has worked like a charm. the only thing now is i wish i had one in every room. I wish it was a little bit less noticeable maybe all black or something. but what the heck it works. I am just now ordering filters and it's been almost a year and some change. i just leave it on the quiet setting and it makes your room smell so fresh. awesome product love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bedroom I bought this for my daughter's bedroom. This helps keeps her room clean so she does not react to allergens. I like the timer on this last generation because it allows me to set for an 8 hour sleep. The quiet mode is a nice enhancement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy I've had terrible seasonal allergies in the spring and fall, and our carpets shed dust like none other. Since I've had this product, the dust in my bedroom has virtually disappeared. My only problem would be that it removes humidity from the air; I also used to get frequent bloody noses, so I had to turn it off, since it would outdo my two humidifiers. It's very dry here to begin with. That's beside the point. Great product, highly recommended! I have mine in a corner, and it works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST FILTER I'VE EVER HAD I have several allergies. I am allergic to many plant pollens and dogs. My old filter broke and I bought this one. Its quiet, low maintenance, and has never shown deterioration in performance. I've nearly had it for a year and just now had to replace the filters because the light turned on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My husband has allergies so we originally bought this for him and it helps him to sleep great at night and not wake up wheezing. Then we adopted an asthmatic cat and realized if we just left the vornado on all the time, he didn't have any asthma attacks. Great product! Perfect for our little apartment :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well and it is quiet. We have used the air purifier in our basement and our teenage son's room. All the cleaning could not get rid of the odors but the filter has been quite successful. I am now purchasing a second purifier and more filters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Disappointed I am allergic to everything in my wife calls me the bubble boy. I will have to say this is probably my worst air filter I've ever purchased. I have used several models from different vendors in my lifetime, but this new model from Vornado is absolutely the worst ever built. At first I did like their simplistic engineering and slim line design. When I got home I tried it out and look at how it was built. When I went to clean it, I noticed that there are no seals on the air filters, which means that the dirty air can pass through without going through their filters. Air will choose the path of least resistance. I then read this similar complaint online, and could not believe this company, which I truly love their fan technology failed to make a product do what it's supposed to do, filter out the air. I have since returned and looking for another product similar to this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product works great as a fan. This product does not really work as stated. Someone was correct when they said it's basically a fan with a couple of furnace filters. I was disappointed because it doesn't really clean the air. I also have an ionic air cleaner which works great but this product is not worth it. This thing is loud and it just blows the air around and dries it out. I had bought two of them and returned them both today
