I BELEVE IN DOOR AIR IS INPORTANT. I HAVE THIS HEPA AIR CLEANER. ITS GREAT. WHY. IM SETTING IN MY LIVING ROOM WITH THE SUN IN WINDOW AND SEEING AIR LINT IN THE AIR.AND I THINK IM BREATHING THAT LINT AND WHAT EVER ELSE THAT STUFF IS. TV SCREEN COVERED WITH THAT DUST.SO WHENT TO MY LOCAL SEARS STORE AND GOT ONE.THE LINT HAS GONE TO ALMOST NONE. LESS CLEANING FOR MY WIFE AND WE SLEEP BETTER. FRESHER AIR. THE PRE FILTER TELLS THE STORY. ITS CHANGED A LOT. I BOUGHT A 700.00 CLEANER THATS FOR GERMS AND BACTERIER.ITS A JOKE.JUNK. FOR THE MONEY SEARS IS THE BEST. THATS THE TRUTH.
I've used this HEPA air filter for my Kenmore Air Purifier Model #85254 for the past 3 years, and loved it until recently. There is a rubber gasket on the back of the HEPA air filter and the one I ordered recently had a noticeable rubber smell to it that permeated the room when I turned on the air purifier. Hoping it was a fluke, I ordered another one, but it smelled just as bad. The last thing you want from an air purifier is for the air to smell WORSE and TOXIC when you're running the machines. I returned both of these to the store. Sears and Kenmore need to address this problem on their HEPA filters before I would consider using these products again. I'm ordering a new air purifier from another company for now.
Although product was on the Web Site it was not available and the order was cancelled.
