The Whirpool Whispure A510 is the BEST Air Cleaner!

We have owned two Whispure AP510's for over five years now. Both units have run practically 24/7 at the TURBO setting, and are still operating beautifully. Over the years, prior to buying our Whispures, we have had Sharper Image tower air cleaners, a Honeywell whole house electronic air cleaner on the furnace, and the comparable Honeywell Envirocaire air cleaners. These two Whispure's have them all beat. We used the Envirocaire in a different, smaller home, and replaced it with a new one when the motor burned out at approx. three year's continuous use. Both Envirocaire's made progressively more noise with age, to the point of being completely unacceptable even with impeccable maintenance. In my opinion, Whirlpool's Whispure design is preferable over the Envirocaire because (1) you can place the unit unobtrusively against a wall or in an unobstructed corner and (2) cleaned air vents out the top of the unit instead of the very noticeable floor draft produced by the Envirocaire (that can be significantly uncomfortable in the winter months), and (3) there are five different air speeds: Low, Medium, High, Turbo and Sleep Mode vs three fan speeds on the Envirocaire. I like the reminder lights on the control panel that keep track of your filter changes and/or your need to replace the carbon or HEPA filter. (The control panel also features a "Control Lock" function to prevent curious little ones from changing your settings by irresistably pressing the "buttons" on the touch panel.) The HEPA filter easily lasts a year with the minimum recommended carbon filter replacement. Maintenance is a breeze: The front cover comes off in one single motion-just grasp the cover at the easily located tabs high on each side and depress gently, the cover lifts right off. The tab-lock mechanism is so well made, it should never break. The carbon pre-filter has slots cut into the fabric that fit onto matching tabs on the inside of the front cover. The slots/tabs design situates the pre-filter exactly where it needs to be to fully cover the HEPA filter and holds it in place while you snap the cover back in place. The HEPA filter is sturdily made with an approx. 1" Wide plastic frame as integral part of the filter. The side facing the rear of the air cleaner has an applied seal that ensures incoming air passes through the HEPA filter and not around it. Our Whispure's were not only worth every penny we paid for them, the pre-filters (4 per pack) and once a year HEPA replacement (at maximum), is every bit worth their cost when you get such a high level of quality. Both of our Whispure's are almost as quiet as the day we bought them (over five years ago, running on TURBO 24/7) and still provide a high CADR (clean air delivery rate). (Note: Allergies, pets and used during use of oxygen concentrator.) In my opinion, this is the best portable home air cleaner.

Display stopped working

The display no longer works and Whirlpool gave me a major runaround over the phone even though their warranty is supposedly still in effect. The unit is less than a year old.

Large Whispure Air Purifier

|

This is a great help to me since I have allergies. It can clean the air of a large room and it is pretty quiet even on the medium speed, which is what I normally set it on. It goes 2 speeds higher and that would be good for obnoxious smells, paint odor, etc.

Really works well!

|

This air purifier is easy to use, has low maintenance and simple filter changes. It pulls as much or as little air as you want with the push of a button. The fan noise level does increase with increased fan speed but it generates "white noise" so the sound level doesn't really bother me. It also seems to be about the right size to fit the open floor-plan of my house but it might be a bit too big for a typical bedroom.

Noisy

|

After two weeks in operation, this unit became progressively more noisy. I will be returning it today. It was quiet for the first couple of days, and the filtration system is fantastic, but it started making a chirping type of noise which has become louder over time.

Good Value

|

This is rated number one by consumer's report. And at the price Sears offered it, it was hard to beat.

Broke

|

Purchased item January 22, 2014, and today, May 30, 2014 decided to clean filter. Following instructions, completed procedure, replaced cover, plugged it in and would not work! After talking with customer service, I must take it to a repair shop to determine if it is covered by warranty or not and decide if I want it repaired if there is a cost. If there is a cost, I will be very annoyed.

Works well

|

Bought this because of the top consumer's report ratings. We had just moved into a new house and had a baby on the way, so wanted to have the construction dust removed and the VOCs. Works very well. Runs quietly - can keep it on at night and had no problem sleeping.

disappointed

|

I purchased the Whirlpool Whispure to help control dust in my bedroom. I did a lot of research and this model was highly rated. However, as soon as I plugged it in I noticed that it was considerably louder than expected, even on the lowest speed. After two days of continuous use the dust level was the same as it had been before installing the unit. The only happy note is that Sears cheerfully accepted the return.

Quiet, efficient

I bought this for my wife, as she has asthma. We can feel the difference already. The unit is quiet, and highly rated. We are pleased with this purchase.

Works great!

|

This is the top ranked purifier from Consumer Reports. Based on my needs (Golden Retriever, Large room, Quiet fan, Allergies), the EPA's website gave me certain criteria to look for when shopping. We've had this approximately three weeks now and it's doing a wonderful job.

QUIET

|

Even on high or turbo speed, you hardly notice that it is on. The noise coming from the fan is not annoying at all. Seems to be picking up a lot of dust and pet hair so far. I like the features of having lights to tell you when to change the HEPA and pre-filters.

Great product!

|

I LOVE this air purifier! It does a fabulous job circulating the air in the room. There is definitely a big difference in the quality of the air, and I know it will help with my daughter's allergies. I knocked off a star because on the higher settings, the unit definitely has a slight wobble to it and is a little noisy. But on low, you really don't notice the noise of the fan. It has a strong, but pleasant, air flow from the unit. I'm planning on purchasing a second one for another room in my house.

Initial results very good

|

i purchased this unit on recommendation by Consumer Reports. I found my allergy symptoms abated within an hour. If I moved to another room without the unit I'd start sneezing again. The unit appears to be good quality and design. I understand the disappointment raised by some reviewers, but hopefully quality issues are infrequent. I've had the unit only three days as yet.

Finally, I can breath!

|

We purchased this last night, plugged it in and ran the humidifier in our bedroom. We both woke up with clear sinuses and my coughing greatly reduced. I had been struggling with the flu for five days and I must say that breathing pure air helped immensely. We live in polluted metro Atlanta air and after the our experience last night we are buying one for each of the kid's bedrooms.

My husband also noticed a marked increase in air quality in the bedroom when he came in from the rest of the house. Be aware - it is large, very quiet, except on the 4th turbo setting, and very effective. I liken the effects of this purifier to breathing fresh mountain air in your home. Don't hesitate on this one, you'll get a better nights sleep for sure.
