  • A Great Air Purifier!

    I have been wanting an air purifier for my bedroom for such a long time. For some reason my bedroom is the "dustiest room" in my home. Maybe it's because of it's location in the house. I was so happy to see this Hunter Air HEPAtech Air Purifier on HSN recently, that I rushed to purchase it! I can truly say, the dust is "no longer" flying around in my bedroom. The plus is, is that it keeps my bedroom cool which I really love! I just happen to "sleep better" in a cool room.

  • Air Purifier

    Bought three of these - two for two of my friends who have problems with allergies and smoke blowing in their apartments from smokers causing real misery! Also one for myself. My friends and myself included are very happy and it has really helped them! Thanks for a great product!
