Luma Comfort AP400W HEPA + UV Air Purifier – No More Pet or Kid Smell

Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier Review - Dog / Pet Hair / Fur


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!

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!

Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier Review

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):

Amazon is selling the AP400W for 25% off right now. A replacement filter pack is about $75 but most of those only need to be replaced once or twice a year. The carbon filter should be replaced every 2-3 months but that’s the least expensive one to get.

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!

Michele P March 4, 2014 - 6:08 pm

I have forced hot air heating and use it for quite a few months out of the year. A couple years ago, I had a leaky basement and got mold down there. We’ve taken care of that issue but unfortunately even though I tried cleaning the vents as best as I could, mold spores still come upstairs to where we are and cause havoc with my lungs. Even my poor cat was sick a few weeks ago due to the air quality in the living room where it is the worst. I’d definitely like to get an air purifier as nice as this one, to make my home a more enjoyable place.

My indoor allergies are so bad, I could actually use one in every room especially in winter when the heaters come on..but I would use this one in my bedroom because that’s where the pets like to sleep and I do get coughing and congested from the animal dander.

Geoff K March 9, 2014 - 8:13 pm

I’d have to go with the bedroom since it’s the room the pets seem to gravitate toward the most, and our allergies tend to kick in while we’re sleeping much of the time!

I have been researching Hepa air purifiers for a month or so now. Our house seems dusty and musty. We live in a very humid climate and I’m certain there are molds in the air. Some of the folks in my house don’t have the strongest immune systems and I’m convinced the air just isn’t clean enough to keep everyone healthy. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!!
