I live in a 200 sq ft studio cottage that I share with 2 dogs. I only have 1 window that is always open and this sits on my desk and runs all day every day on the highest setting & I turn it off at bed time because I like it silent when I sleep. I purchase the true hepa filters & use the arm & hammer charcol filters and change them about every 2-3 months but clean the charcol filters with a vacuum more frequently. This thing catches so much fine dust particles from the air and does a great job. It's not quite enough for the size of my space and since it's white or light beige color, it shows the dirt & dust it colletcts so I plan to replace it with 2 small black air purifiers (that use the same filters)one for my desk & the other to place in my kitchen area. On the highest setting, it has gotten a bit louder after a year but I sit right next to it and while working at my desk, I dont have any other noise like tv or radio going. I don't mind the noise due to ringing in the ears- it provides "white noise" and also helps drown out neighborhood noise like barking dogs & squawking noisy crows that get my dogs joining in with the critter chorus. Overall an excellent little air purifier that does it's job as long as you change the filters & vacuum in between changes.

I have had mine for some years now, and just looking at the old filters tell you it cleans well. BUT, it is so darn LOUD! I have always slept with a purifier running because I can't sleep with it too quiet. But this machine is right on that too-loud threshold. Granted, it is in a very small room, but my older machines had a more reasonable volume. Another downside is I can't figure out how to take the case apart for a good deep cleaning. Older styles were very easy. I had to borrow someone's air compressor to get all the dust blown out of it, which was making it even louder. So, if you want a machine that filters well, this one will make you happy. If you need to sleep with White Noise, this will also help, but it may be a bit too loud for you if you have it in a small room.

Comments about Holmes HAP242-UC 99% HEPA/Carbon Filter Air Purifier:

I had used this product at a place I was renting to get rid of moldy smell and liked it so much I decided I had to have one when I bought a home with a smelly closet. It works quite well, is quiet and small so unobtrusive and very easy to handle or operate.

Comments about Holmes HAP242-UC 99% HEPA/Carbon Filter Air Purifier:

I bought this unit two weeks ago and so far so good. I really like the fact that you can have it lay horizontally or vertically. I was so impressed with this item that I am going to buy a second one for another room.

Great for allergies & asthma

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Holmes HAP242-UC 99% HEPA/Carbon Filter Air Purifier:

We've had this unit in my son's room for 8-10 years now. Never a problem with it. He shares his room w/our dog, but he's allergic to dust, mold, & seasonal things. He's now 16 & really notices when it's not w/him, such as at relatives, etc. We bought a different model for our bedroom and it also runs great.

Air Purifier

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK, United States

Comments about Holmes HAP242-UC 99% HEPA/Carbon Filter Air Purifier:

I purchased the Desktop Air Purifier with HEPA-Type Filter & Optional Ionizer because the other one after MANY years of service finally started to die. This was the next best option. Placed it in service and very pleased the sound an function of the unit.

Great product for desk and great price!

By 

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Holmes HAP242-UC 99% HEPA/Carbon Filter Air Purifier:

Hi. This is a great product that helps me with my allergies at my desk at work. I have always had allergy flare ups in my current workplace office. After getting this product, it feels like I can breath so much better and don't have as many allergy flare ups at my desk. I have it at my desk right beside me, and on any of the settings it is not too loud or bother me or my coworkers. I tend to keep it on the lowest or second lowest fan speed setting. I don't use the ionizer very often. I also like the aer1 true-hepa replacement filter. Thanks for making great products that anyone can afford!
