By continuously circulating a room's air through two filters, this portable air cleaner removes smoke, pollen, dust, animal dander, dust mites, molds, bacteria, viruses, and odors. Invaluable for those who suffer from allergies or asthma, the cleaner contains a true HEPA filter that is at least 99.97 percent effective at trapping extremely tiny particles--and actually gets better with use, as captured particles catch other particles. A prefilter reduces odors. The cleaner measures 22 by 13-3/4 by 10 inches and, because the air exits upward, can be placed behind furniture. Recommended for rooms up to 405 square feet, the cleaner has five speeds for different-size rooms, a quick-clean speed to filter a room's air within minutes, and a dirty-filter indicator. The HEPA filter lasts two to four years, the prefilter three months. (Two extra prefilters are included.) Filter replacement is simple: Lift off front, unhook elastic straps, remove prefilter and/or HEPA filter, position new filter(s), and hook up the straps. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Clean, simple design. Functional and efficient.
Like many other air filters, this features a squirrel cage blower to decrease noise. Five speed fan. Top exhaust. Easy to clean inlet louvers (the whole front panel removes quickly and easily for washing and the louvers are spaced apart so you can get in there with your hand). The large HEPA filter has a washable and cheap to replace pre-filter. The filtration path is excellent and sealed to prevent bypass flow.

The only downside is the noise (all of these air cleaners are loud, in my opinion because they all are made of lightweight materials) and the cost of filter replacement. The HEPA filter is about [price] to replace and, although that is ridiculously expensive, all the air cleaners are that much.

Vornado seems to make excellent products and they certainly didn't rush to market with this one. They took the time to design it right.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quiet and powerful
I really like the AQS35. I've only owned one other air filter system, and compared to it, this one is super quiet, and it looks much nicer sitting in the corner. It really blends in, since you can place it right up against a wall. My only problem with it was right out of the box. The 'squirrel cage' fan was warped, and would scrap against the unit. I took the back off and readjusted it, and now it is whisper quiet. It comes with one HEPA filter (lasts 2-4 years), and three prefilters (one in the unit and two spares). These are changed every 3 months.

2-0 out of 5 stars Big mistake, wish I never bought it
To be fair, the first week I used it, it was wonderful. Within an hour of turning it on it took all the cigarette odor out of the room and I could smell the air refresheners again. But after that it just went downhill fast.

This Vornado air purifier arrived on mid to late September, and by the end of October it was time for a new Hepa Replacement Filter..., and a new pack of carbon filters...After only 6 weeks???

The room that this Vornado system is in is 10x9, hardly a large room, but within 6 weeks of buying this unit the filters need to be replaced.

And by the way...it is LOUD!
I have to turn it completely off when I'm on the phone, or I can't hear the conversation.
The medium setting is so loud it gives me a headache.

My roommate owns another air purifier and he makes comments about what a bad purchase my Vornado was because his is quiet and really purifies the air. He smokes three packs a day and you'd never know it with his filter.

One last thing...if you look at the Vornado replacement filters, both the hepa and the carbon, you'll notice theyre usually 1-2 weeks before they ship. Keep that in mind and order very early, as I've been waiting 3 week now and still haven't gotten my filters. And except for amazon I can't find anyone else who sells them. Not even on the manufacturers website.

I *cough* wish I bought a different air purifier *cough* *cough*.

5-0 out of 5 stars great product
i've been a heavy smoker and my room stinks to a point that even myself can't stand the smell anymore. consider i already have a vornado fan and heater, and both work really well, so when i think of a air cleaner, the first brand i think about is this one. i totally love it and it works fantastic for me, just one nite use and my room already smell much cleaner and i can tell the air is much freasher. it might be a bit noisey for certain people, but to me the noise is very acceptable except the highest setting, i have no problem sleeping when the machine is on all nite at setting "3". i'm so glad to have it and feel sorry for those people didn't like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wait ... I'm not sniffly any more!
I bought this HEPA filter after reading other positive reviews about it. I had previously tried a Honeywell filter but found it too big and loud.

This filter is still pretty big. (It's much bigger than it looked -- to me -- in the picture on Amazon.) But it's lightweight, easy to move, and can be pushed up against a wall without compromising function.

INITIALLY, I was disappointed with the filter. Most of the reviews I'd read made it sound like a miracle had occurred the morning after they plugged the filter in. I woke up the morning after having used the product's "Quick Clean" feature and running it all night, and I didn't find that my whole world had changed. It wasn't until a few weeks later that I suddenly realized that I had quit sniffling all the time and so had my two roommates (who are allergic to my cat). So in my case, the relief was more gradual than for others, but in the end, the thing WORKS.

About the noise level: I leave the filter running all the time on either the first or second settings (out of five). On these settings, it's more quiet than my fan, and while I can still hear it, it's pleasant white noise. The fifth setting -- "Quick Clean" -- is intended for short and powerful cleaning and is pretty loud. Fortunately, I've only had to use it twice. (Once for the initial cleaning and once when my roommate cooked some fish that stunk up the whole apartment.)

I recommend this filter, but keep in mind that the improvement in your air quality may not be drastic immediately. Be patient and give it some time to work. I guess (fortunately!) my allergies just weren't as bad as others. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for City Environment
Works great, but also generates enough white noise to drown out street noise and neighbors. If you live in a city, and have trouble sleeping; try using this air filter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
It is a loud machine but it's great for me because I live on a noisy street and it blocks out all the other sounds so I can sleep at night! It works great too, and it's small in size and not heavy, so when I have people over that smoke I move it to the living room or wherever we are and it completely eliminates the smell.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice machine, but too loud
I just purchased all three Vornado air filters: the AQS15, AQS25, and the AQS35. All have the same basic design, and the higher the model number, the larger the size. The AQS25 and 35 deserve five stars: good design, and quiet operation. The AQS15, however, has one major problem. It is loud. On its lowest setting (of the three speeds it has), it is as loud as either of its bigger siblings on their highest settings! The AQS15 is so loud that I personally can't stand to be in the same room with it. An air filter should be seen and not heard. I don't know why it is so loud, possibly because of its small size and the huge volume of air that it moves. I own other Vornado products, such as their heater, fans, and humidifier. This is the first time Vornado has disappointed me.

Bottom line: if you want a *quiet*, high quality HEPA air filter, get the AQS25 or 35. The AQS25 is the best buy for the money. On the other hand, if you don't mind having a filter that sounds like an old fashioned 9-horsepower box fan, then get the AQS15. Aside from the Vornado design, the only thing this filter has going for it is its small size. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Broke after one day
I read the reviews and decided this was the best purifier for the price, received it in two days, hooked it up and it stopped working overnight. Not worth the headache.

5-0 out of 5 stars Refurbished unit was just fine for me.
Refurbished unit just as good as brand new. Same 5 yr warranty as new. Package arrived in just 2 days. Have it on in the bedroom, can watch televison with the AQS25 unit on, no problem. Saved about [money] bucks and used savings on something else.

2-0 out of 5 stars I love Vornado Fans but . . .
I am a big admirer of Vornado products. We have many of their fans and have gotten years of great service out of their products.

I thought I would try their air purifier since I was so happy with their other products. I especially like the fact that their products are made in the USA and they offer great warranty service.

After a long wait, the purifier arrived. It set up quickly but I was a little surprised at how flimsy the case was. It opened with the smallest touch. Rubberbands are used to keep the filter in place which didn't seem like a good idea since rubber ages so quickly.

After one day of use, the purifier started giving off a horrible smell. The entire room began to smell of mildew. I am not sure if this was due to how the product was stored in the warehouse but the odor would not go away.

Vornado tried to help but I ended up returning the product and buying a Hunter air cleaner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Helps with allergies
As a year-round allergy sufferer, I have to say that the AQS25 is a lifesaver! It really does take all of the dust, pollen, etc. out of the air. Just check out the filter after a few weeks and you will know it works :)

5-0 out of 5 stars The best of the Vornado HEPA filters
I just purchased all three Vornado HEPA filters: the AQS15, 25, and 35. The AQS15 is way too loud, but I can find no fault with either the AQS25 or AQS35. Nice design, *very* quiet operation. Unlike other HEPA air filter machines, this one is easy to clean and maintain. If I ever need another HEPA filter, I would not hesitate to buy this machine again.

Of the three Vornado HEPA filters, the AQS25 is the most quiet. On the lowest setting, it is barely audible. It is just a little smaller than the biggest Vornado, the AQS35, but it is much less expensive. I think that makes it the best buy for the money. I am very pleased with this machine. ... Read more
