Holmes HAP600-U Review – Does the HEPA-Type Egg Air Purifier hold up for the price?

Holmes HAP600-U HEPA-Type Egg Air Purifier

Are you in the market for a compact air purifier? If so, the Holmes HAP600-U may be the right solution for you. The aesthetics of the product has made a positive impression upon the reviewers meaning it can also serve as a nice decorative element. Let us see whether it is well worth the cost for your needs.

The multi-speed fan features three fan speeds with separate buttons for each. The low speed setting allows for quieter operation while the medium setting is designed for optimum air filtration. There are some reports that the fan is noisy on the high setting but it is an objective thing. For some people, it functions like a white noise machine.

Coming with HEPA-type filtration, it captures small particles and airborne allergens as small as 2 microns in size. If you are looking for a unit that really helps with allergies, then this probably would not cut it. You should look for the one which is bundled with a true HEPA are filtration system. Have a look at the GermGuardian AC4825, a 3-in-1 air cleaner that offers True HEPA.

The permanent filter, as the name implies, is reusable. To maintain its efficiency, it should be vacuumed every few months. While it is a good thing, there is something that you should be knowledgeable on. Some customers have expressed their concerns that Holmes does not sell the replacement filter for this model.

There is an button for turning on and off the optional ionizer. The service indicator light will tell you when the filter is dirty. The blue light of the nightlight feature is also an added plus. It can be turned on/off. The buttons on the control panel light up when they are activated. No guessing what is on or off.

The majority of the reviewers on Amazon has rated the Holmes HAP600-U at least 4/5 stars. They seem satisfied with their purchase of the small air cleaner.

There are some complaints that the light on the buttons are very bright but unless you like sleeping in a totally dark room, this should not be a deal killer. The most concerning complaint is the availability of the replacement filter. It is best if you call the company directly about this issue before buying this product.

Despite the criticisms that have been leveled at this product, most of the customer reviews have been positive. It seems to clean the air as it is supposed to do. This small air purification system is not equipped with activated carbon filters. However, customer feedback suggests that it can help reduce unwanted odors.

It is easy to take out the filter for cleaning. Positive comments have also been expressed by many reviewers in reference to the blue light at the base that make it more appealing.

The uniquely shaped air purifier is ideal for small rooms up to 120 square feet. A good size for an average bedroom or a small office. Air is drawn from the bottom of the unit and blown out from the top.

All in all, the Holmes HAP601-U is not an exemption to some flaws. But if you have a need for a small, basic air cleaner, then this probably is the model for you.
