Are you or is someone in your household an allergy sufferer? I have suffered from allergies my whole life. I’m noticeably allergic to both cats and dogs as well as highly allergic to dust mites. Unfortunately my oldest son also inheirited this condition from me. In addition to his allergies he also has asthma. Thankfully it is controllable and he has never been hospitalized for it, but it can put him out of commission for some time. Due to this we try to do what we can to eliminate the allergens in his living space.
We just got rid of his allergen free pillow a month ago due to its need of replacement. Look for a separate review on the Smart Silk pillow we replaced it with. I also have his box spring and mattress covered with special allergen free bedding to help reduce any symptoms of allergies or asthma. A recent addition to his room is the Honeywell True HEPA Tower Allergen Remover. When I was asked if I would like to review the tower my first thought was definitely a yes and knew immediately I would put this in my sons room. Despite my own allergies my son seems to get hit harder each allergy season.
The Honeywell True HEPA Tower Allergen Remover captures up to 99.97% of microscopic allergens such as pollen, dust, smoke, and pet dander as small as 0.3 microns from air that passes through the filters.
This high performance tower air purifier is ENERGY STAR® rated so you can feel comfortable running it 24/7.
The tower came almost ready to use out of the box. We simply had to open the filter pop it into place and add the odor eliminator. The Honeywell True HEPA Tower Allergen Remover can be used at three different speeds. I thought that my son would like it to be placed on the lowest speed, as it was the quietest, but he prefers the second. He likes to hear the tower working and I think the hum is relaxing to him when it is bed time.
We leave the tower on 24/7 so that it can do its job and keep the air allergen free. When he leaves in the morning he shuts the door so the tower is concentrating purely in his bedroom. Even before a week of testing my son was commenting to me that he really loved the tower. He says he can definitely tell a difference in the air, it feels cleaner and crisp he says.
On a maintenance level it is great that the air filter only needs to be replaced about every 12 months. The odor eliminator every 3, this is a pretty low maintenance product, which is great for our busy life style. The tower is also equipped with a two filter clean reminders to let you know when it is time to replace each filter. When the filter is ready to be replaced the light under the corresponding filter will stay on until reset. The great thing is unplugging and moving your filter does not effect or interrupt the filter check. You should also note that you should NOT clean the filters this will ruin them.
So as I said easy as pie, pop in both filters plug it in and leave it alone. Every three months you will need to replace the odor eliminating filter and the HEPA filter once a year, you really can not ask for an easier product.

Our thoughts on this product is an A+, we found absolutely nothing negative to say and have noticed only positive effects. Whatever can help my son with his asthma is a product worth having.
