  • Don't waste your money

    Plugged in the air cleaner and the fan was rubbing something. To cheaply made. I will no longer buy Hunter air purifiers. Last few I have bought thru HSN have all gone bad right away.

  • purifier very loud.

    I have air purifiers in all my rooms. This one is very noisy. You would not put this in a bedroom because you can hear it--worse than a fan. Don' know where to put it? Would not recommend. Should have sent it back--but too late.
