Smart Sensors & Auto Mode
Utilizing our Smart Sensors the 5500-2 consistently monitors the air around it. The LED indicator displays the quality on a scale of good to poor (1-3). When the unit senses the quality change, it automatically adjusts the speed at which it’s running to equalize the pollutants and create clean. pure. air.
LED Auto Dim Feature
With the end user in mind our engineers had a great thought; why do the LED lights remain bright even when it’s dark? With that thought in mind we created the auto dim feature; which senses the amount of ambient light in the room, allowing the unit to adjust the brightness of the display.
Filter Replacement Indicator
Worried you might forget when your filter needs to be changed? Fret not. The 5500-2 will let you know when it’s time. The control panel will display an LED alert until the filter is changed. On average the (CD)Carbon Pre-Filter needs to be changed every 6 months and the True HEPA Filter needs to be changed every year.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The unit arrived promptly and unpackaging was an ease. I literally had it set up ans running in about 5 minutes. The body is a hard, matte black plastic that feels sturdy and durable. The front panel is easy to remove, and secures to the unit via a clever magnetic clasp that is secure, yet simple to remove to access your prefilter for bi weekly cleaning and hepa/carbon filter replacement. There are 3 filters in total, and they fit snugly inside the filter chamber, amd ate secured in with the prefilter that snaps firmly into place.
The control panel at the top is intuituve and user friendly. The buttons are clearly marked and visual ques explain what each button does taking out any guesswork as to what they do. A stylish indicator light bar runs along the bottom of the control panel indicating the level of air cleanliness with a 3 color scheme...green for clean, orange for okay, and red for bad. You can manually run the machine on 4 fan settings, or choose auto mode and let the machine choose the settings based on the data colected from the sensor. This means hands off operation. There's a night mode that will set the fan to its lowest setting to cut down on noise, and also dim all lights on the panel. This night mode will set automatically if you have the auto mode set on the unit, a light sensor will detect (or not detect) any light in the room and go into night mode. A filter change indicator light also is on the control panel. According to what i've researched, the hepa filter should last approx 1 year. It also comes with a remote control with a battery preinstalled. I dont plan on using it, but if that's your thing, it's there.
This is the quietest air purifier I've ever owned. On level 1, it's almost undetectable, and even on level 4 turbo mode, it's no louder than a standing floor fan on high. This was a very pleasant surprise.
It cleans the air well. I'm currently using it in my 350 sq ft bedroom. I don't have the equipment to test it, but per their website I should be getting at least 4 air changes per hour which is the amount of air exchanges you need for allergies and serious air purification. I've had no smoke smell AT ALL in the bedroom when I run this with the door shut to the rest of the home and it was initially startling to walk from the bedroom into the rest of the home after the first night of using it.
This unit has more than exceeded my expecations ans meets all the things I was looking for in an air purifier. I plan on purchasing 2 more of these when money permits for my combined kitchen/dining/living room area that totals 700 sq ft. I can place these at opposite sides of the area and get more than ample coverage. I would highly reccomend this unit. For the price and the feature list, this just can't be beat. The cost is low, the replacement filters don't cost an arm and a leg, it covers a large area, and you get a lot of features.
It's gone too. Dusting twice a day still didn't help before. It's simply not there. In addition to a wood house, one end of the house is all glass....so even after I dusted there was always "glitter in the air" as my toddler called it. It's gone as well.
It might be all in my head, but I swear my mood and energy are better too. (Could be because the house appears clean, or it could be in my head...either way...I consider this a win!) If you have any issues with this kind of stuff, look into getting one. I wish I would have long before this! I posted this on social media and 5 of my friends have ordered it now too. We are getting a second one for the lower level of the house. We have an open floor plan and it covers a very large area. Homes with out open floor plans may want a second to rotate in sleeping areas.
***To date 6 friends/family ordered and love theirs too! Great Buy!!
Once the air flows through the filters, it is redistributed cleanly through the vent on top of the unit. What I really like is that you can adjust the fan speed to four different speeds (low to high), and you even have a sleep mode to shut off the lighting and drops the db lv to almost nothing. Even with the fan on high, I don't find the noise all that loud.
The coolest feature about this purifier is the three light system. If you put this unit on automatic mode, the fans will adjust themselves automatically depending on how dirty the air is. For example, if I vacuume near this, the red light comes on indicating that there is a high concentration particulates in the air, so it will automatically turn the unit on high, but if there is a low about, it turns orange. The fan will lower to a medium rate, but if the air quality is good, it stays blue. This also happens when the dog walks and/or stirs in front of it.
The plasma wave technology can also be turned off with a push of a button. I was first concerned of ozone, but what this unit puts off is far below what the EPA recommends for this type of unit. It also comes with a remote which is very handy, and not to mention, it really looks nice.
If you have allergies like me, smoke or just feel that your air quality is not at its best, I 100% recommend this product.
