We've tested many air cleaners, and always try to offer our customers the best. Here it is, The Whirlpool® Whispure™ AP250 True HEPA Air Purifier ‐ Model AP25030K, cleans air better than many purifiers twice its size. The Whispure 250's AHAM Certified¹ clean air delivery rate (CADR) means you can be assured the Whispure 250 delivers certifiably clean air in rooms up to 320 square feet. Plus, its Energy Star® efficiency translates into more energy savings for you. While the price might be for those watching their pennies, you would need to pay more than double the price to match the cleaning power of the Whispure 250.

The Whispure 250 blends Whirlpool's expertise in home appliances with True HEPA filtration and sound-reducing technology. The True HEPA filter removes 99.97% of particles to 0.3 microns, with less air flow resistance to reduce noise, and less power consumption to lower energy bills. The activated charcoal pre-filter further removes odors and gases to keep air fresh while protecting the life of the HEPA. The Whispure 250 features 3 fan settings to purify air…and to control noise levels. The unit runs ultra quietly on low and medium settings. Although a bit louder on high, the Whispure 250 isn't even half as loud as comparable brands, and is Whirlpool's quietest Whispure model at the high setting.

Designed to blend inconspicuously into your home décor, the Whispure 250 works anywhere, even against a wall. The unit's modest but good-looking control panel is loved by customers wanting attractive simplicity. Intelligently designed with a large open face for air intake and top air output for maximum delivery of filtered air, you will be amazed at just how much clean air the Whispure 250 produces.

Filter maintenance is a breeze with the Whirlpool 250. Filter monitor lights conveniently signal the need for HEPA and pre-filter changes through the easily accessible front panel. Under normal conditions, the pre-filter will need replacement every 3 months, and the HEPA filter once a year.  5-Year Mfr. Limited Warranty.

Whirlpool Whispure™ AP250 Air Purifier Instructions ‐ Model AP25030K

Please see Owner's Manual tab for operating and care instructions, plus full instructions on changing the filters.

General on Pre-Filter:

  • The pre-filter absorbs odors and captures large airborne particles that enter the air purifier. Therefore, regularly changing the pre-filter will keep your unit performing at its best, and preserve the life of the HEPA filter.

General on HEPA Filter:

  • Remember that the filter's service life is related to the volume of air that passes through the purifier and the amount of contaminants in the air. If your indoor air has unusually high levels of airborne particulates or contaminants, the filter's service life may be shortened.

  • Regular maintenance helps to prolong the life of the HEPA filter. Keep the area surrounding the air purifier clean, and be sure to change the pre-filter approximately every 3 months.
  • Replace the HEPA filter if you notice a significant drop in air flow or if the filter media is excessively darkened.

NOTE:   Do NOT immerse the pre-filter or HEPA filter in water ‐ they are NOT washable.

Effective and affordable without the fancy bells and whistles

Easy set up. Tuck against a wall, as described. I have been running them on the lowest speed and they are very quiet. I ordered two for my small 650 sq.ft. apartment because I have 2 cats and get paranoid about dust and dander, though my visitors say they usually can't even tell I have pets until they see them! Anyway, I'm a bit of a fanatic about clean air and these do the trick. Very pleased

Very compact and quiet... perfect for a small room... or bedroom. Love it!

Works really well but doesn't completely fill a small room unless you close every cracks and crevices in your room.
This is now the 2nd one I have bought. The first several years ago, and liked it so. Now I have bought a 2nd one for another room.
Works great. Quiet. The air is cleaner. My boyfriend can walk through the house without getting into an asthma attack. My cat also has allergies. I plug in the air cleaner and there is a huge improvement. I like how I can put it against the wall and the clean air comes out on top. I am so glad I got this cleaner and the other products as well.
My husband and I both have allergies and have it in the bedroom. I like that it is quiet and we are feeling better with the air cleaner.
My order came very quickly and the product was extremely easy to set up, just unpack and plug in. GREAT! So far my husband has experienced some relief since using this product and I've noticed not only less snoring at night, we have it in our bedroom, but the room isn't as dusty either. So far we're very pleased.
I have had this air cleaner for about 3 weeks now and it works great! It is very quite on the middle and low settings. The high setting is a little loud, but I only use that over night or if I am heading out during the day. I have 4 dogs and this cleaner has really helped me. I also noticed less dust in my family room...bonus!!! I will also add that the 1st cleaner I got was broken out of the box. I called Whirlpool and they told me they would replace it, but I had to pay to ship it back and it would take another 2-3 weeks to get a new cleaner. The girl at Whirlpool was very rude, but I called National Allergy and spoke with a supervisor named Judy and she was VERY helpful!!! She shipped me a new system that day, overnight and contacted me a few days later to schedule a FedEx home pick-up for the broken cleaner. I was very happy with National Allergy customer service! I plan on getting another one for my bedroom this week!
I am most happy with this product. Purchased one for the bedroom and one for the living room. Easy controls. No programing. Just turn the knob to high, med or low or to off. I find that the noise level is very low even on High. I leave it on the High setting in the bedroom. It's less noisy than the small a/c I have in the window. Very easy to move it around in any room. Just pick it up and place it where you want it. I would recommend this product to anyone. I purchased it on March 13, 2012 and received it on the 17th. No set up. Unpack it, plug it in then turn it on. The air is now so fresh in the whole apartment.
This was perfect right out of the box. It's quiet and does the job. I received it right after a major surgery and it really helps me sleep better. My allergies as well as my partner's are abated. Why did I wait?
I have 3 machines that are larger than this one, but needed one for my pet area so I choose this one. It does well in the smaller area.
