The air purifier will blow out filtered air that is the temperature of the room that it is placed in. This may seem cool to some people. The unit does not actually cool the air. Thank you.

Poor performance for smokers.
Recently we had to bring our daughter back into live with us. She’s a smoker so we put her out in the garage for that issue. The garage is 1 car attached and insulated with heat and air conditioning. I decided to buy the product to see if it would at least keep the air clear in the garage area as it’s only a one car garage. As you can see from the photos, the ashtray and cigarette is against the intake of the system running at high speed. The garage smells smoky as it ever did. I’m certain it does purify the air for allergens and the rest of it, but for cigarette smoke it’s not worth the money.

I have the older model
Customer review from holmesproducts.com logo
Bought the model before this one I believe HAP9240. I consistently cleaned the unit and changed the filter each month with the green quality AER HEPA filters. I thought it was working well until I shined a flashlight down the outlet side of the unit, (where the fresh "purified" air is coming out of) and it was filthy. Yes I have the filter in right and yes it has a good seal. I know it's a cheap purifier but I wasn't expecting that amount of dirt and particles on the fresh air side of it. I enjoy Holmes products and I'd like to see Holmes make this right and correct it.

Maybe I got a dud.
Customer review from holmesproducts.com logo
I bought the unit because I live in an apartment where I have to suffer with my neighbor's smoke smells. Unfortunately, what I notice is that the unit would not stop running unless I unplug it. Even when the unit is supposed to be off, it still runs. I did not feel comfortable with that to I returned it.

This is exactly what we wanted. We had one for 15 years almost like this one but the new improved model is better and easier to change the filters which I did not like in the older model. I has two settling for noise levels which I like because it blocks out other noises from outside and inside.
