WHIRLPOOL MINI TOWER WHISPURE AIR PURIFIER – TRUE HEPA AIR CLEANER
Great small unit

I was pleased that all I had to do was pull it out of the box, take off 2 small pieces of protective plastic and plug it in to start working. I bought 2 of these for our toddler’s allergies and my own. Very quiet on high setting and has a ‘smooth’ sound not a rattling chopping sound. My only complaint is that the Amazon description notes 130 sq ft. but the box says 80 sq feet. The rooms they are being used in are 110 and 100 sq ft. I really would have opted for a bigger size had I known these were rated for a smaller room. It may seem like not much of a size difference but cleaning the dirty L.A. air out of my son’s room is important to me. Overall very pleased – just note the unit actually says it is intended for 80 sq ft.

This is our first air purifier. We (i and my twin-brother) did lots of research and were debating (on sizes and brands as well as types [tower like or big book shelf like]) which one to choose. We live in a small apartment (2 bedrooms 1 bathroom) and at first we were thinking of purchasing 1 Big air purifier (most of which claim to cover pretty large area), and set it at the living room. However, since we have several rooms, one unit most likely won’t be effective to cover whole apartment (zig-zag walls and all). So we decided to find small, best quality for the buck, air purifier and set them in 2 bedrooms + living room. At the end of our search, we decided to get this one. Three of these small purifiers cost us the same as one giant one (we compare price to Winix WAC9500 or several SHARPs).
Quiet white noise and cleaner air in bedroom

I am really appreciating the cleaner air in my home. I purchased this for my bedroom about two months ago after being allergy tested and finding out that I am allergic to dust mites, grass, and my dog. I also purchased a different manufacturer’s larger unit for our large family room. I am so pleased with the air quality in our home! There is no dust floating in the rays of sunshine, much less on surfaces, and the house smells clean and the air seems lighter somehow. Would recommend this particular unit for a small bedroom as it doesn’t take up much space and is quiet.
These work GREAT!

I have other Whirlpool Whispure units of different sizes, I researched them thouroughly and imo, this brand is the best at removing contaminants including VOC’s. There is maintenance involved with filter replacment but it’s worth the superior job these things do at protecting. I use it in conjunction with UV type air cleaners sometimes.
Effective but a little noisy

For $90, this has both a charcoal pre-filter and hepa filter, so it can help reduce allergens and so on. It lost a star because on the highest setting, the way the airflow is designed creates noisy turbulence. These are small, so it’s not a big deal, but it seems like more thoughtful design could have streamlined the airflow and made it quieter. I bought two, and they both make this noise. Otherwise good features and effective. My guess is you would find similar or worse noise in competing products.
Dramatically improved sleep!!

My doctor recommended whirlpool air purifier for our mold sensitivities. (We still need to remediate the high mold counts in our home). My daughter hasn’t slept well since she was born (she is nearly 7 years old). We have been running this air purifier in her room (right next to her bed) constantly for the last 6 weeks now. She has been sleeping through the night ever since…finally! Air noticably feels so much cleaner to breathe.

It’s so quiet. Has been a consistent performer.
Still going after 2+ years

Use it every day at work. Still works, switch is fine, and I use the timer daily. Must be time to get a new hepa filter…
I would like to be able to write a good review for this product, but I can’t. Got the first one and the display was barely visible. I had the friend who recommended it come over and showed to him and he said there was definitely something wrong, that the display should be easily visible. So returned it for exchange. Same issue with the 2nd one. I returned that for exchange, but Amazon reject the exchange option and just gave me a refund. Since I had already bought a larger unit for the living room
