Have you ever walked into your house, taken a few whiffs, then said, “What IS that?!” Well, we have. Especially since we’ve moved into a smaller place, it’s been increasingly more difficult to keep our apartment free of dog and teen funk. We purchased an air purifier from the local warehouse store but it was loud and didn’t cover our entire living room space. The Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier really caught my attention. With wall-to-wall carpets and year-round allergies, this sounded perfect:
If you’re an allergy or asthma sufferer, the Luma Comfort AP400W is your choice for serious contaminant removal. This air purifier covers 400 square feet and removes particulates as well as chemicals and VOCs.
Just the air cleaner I was looking for!
Luma Comfort AP400W HEPA Air Purifier with 5-Stage Advanced Air Cleaning
When the AP400W arrived, Frans immediately went to set it up. Each of the four filters were individually packed and were already placed in the order they needed to be in. Set-up included unwrapping the filters, putting them in, closing the cover, and turning it on. If only all home appliances were so easy to put together!
With the vents on the top and sides, we could put the purifier right next to the wall. It only sticks out about 10 inches and has a nice, flat design. I really like this because our other one was an awkward shape and stood out like an eye-sore being all black and having an obtrusive handle.
Frans did mention that the top vents looked like the perfect place for stray crayons and other ‘easy-to-stick-in-holes’ type things. It’d be a good idea to keep the toddlers away from this.
AP400W Air Purifier Functionality
The controls are very straight forward and are sensitive to the touch:
- Power: On/Off
- Fan Speed: Low, medium, and high. We generally keep the air purifier on low, but we’ll sometimes kick it into medium if we need more air circulation.
- Timer: 1-7 hours
- Filter Change: If any of the filters need to be changed, the indicator light will switch on. One light for the carbon pre-filter and one for the HEPA filter, TiO2 filter, and VOC filter.
- UV Light: Kills any sicknesses floating around. My daughter got a little stomach bug but it didn’t get passed on to us! Yay!
The AP400W has really been doing its job well. When we come home, it smells fresh inside and there’s a gentle flow of air. I’m so glad the filters are designed to handle pet hair and cooties. I have a slight allergy to dog dander and, though she is not considered long-haired, Speckles does shed. This is just after one brushing:
The manual suggests keeping the AP400W on 24/7 (energy used is about an 100W light bulb). As it’s place right next to my daughter’s bed, we were very concerned with the sound levels. Fortunately, there’s only a slight hum when on low, similar to what you’d hear if the window was cracked open. Maybe this will help you get a better idea (make sure the volume is set to normal):
We’ve been really happy with the Luma Comfort AP400W. It does everything we need with its 5-stage air cleaning and is the perfect size for our medium-sized living room. With few moving parts, this air purifier will last a long time. I think this air purifier is a fantastic purchase and would recommend it to anyone that has allergies and/or pets!
