How it works and what sources of indoor pollution destroy
The Haverhill HAP52010E air purifier has a fan and air is moved through a 3-stage filtration system.
First is large particle pre-filter. It removes large particles like pet hair, smoke particles, and larger pollen spores. It is washable. As this filter is first that meets polluted air, it gets dirty faster. For best results clean it regularly.
Next is the main filter – true-HEPA filter. It captures 99.97% of allergens and other pollutants as small as 0.3 microns. This includes pollen, mold spores, dust mites, pet dander, smoke particles.
The last one is activated carbon filter. And this unit uses one of the best carbon filters in its price category. It is thicker than filters used in competitors air purifiers. It removes more odors from cigarette smoke, pets, and cooking.

Speeds 1 is very silent. Speed 2 and 3 also is silent. Speed 4 to 6 are louder especially the last one.
I couldn’t find CADR for this air purifier. But manufacturers homepage specifications says an amount of air moved (max CFM): 260.
Recommended max space is 538 square feet. Ceiling height is 8 feet.
538×8=4304. 4304/260=16minutes. That means all air in your room will be filtered through the air purifier 4 times/hour.

True-HEPA filter is used 2000 hours in total. Filter check indicator will show when you need to replace it.
