Open Thread: Easy Home HEPA Allergen Remover

Last Updated on July 8, 2020

Most people know that while air is (usually) clear, it’s not empty. Our atmosphere is filled with countless chemical and biological agents, from exhaust fumes to bacteria. In the spring and summer, allergens also join the mix, with pollen being one of the biggest concerns. Everyone is, to some extent, sensitive to allergens in the air, but some people are affected worse than others. Medicines can help, but it’s also nice to be able to find ways to get away from the allergens altogether.

One option is a HEPA allergen remover, which uses a high-standard filter to pull allergens out of the air. Aldi carries one from time to time.

What We Know:

Easy Home HEPA Allergen Remover

The Easy Home HEPA Allergen Remover (Product Code: 90220) is an Aldi Find. That means it’s only in stores for a short time. At the time of this post, the Aldi allergen remover is $59.99, which is far less than most other allergen removers online. It comes with a 5-year warranty, backed by Tempo USA, a common Aldi after-sales company.

This remover measures 8.5 inches wide and 12.27 inches tall and is designed for rooms of up to 250 square feet. It utilizes two filters: a HEPA filter and a carbon filter.

The HEPA filter is designed to remove airborne particulates, including allergens.

The active carbon filter is a honeycomb filter. According to Aldi, this is a two-in-one filter, absorbing 1) formaldehyde, toluene, other chemical substance and 2) odor in the air.

In addition, the Aldi allergen remover comes with the following features:

  • Touch display
  • An LED air quality sensor that shows good, fair, and poor air cleaning levels
  • Four fan speed levels: low, medium, high, and turbo
  • A timer that can be set for 1, 2, 4, or 8 hours
  • A detachable and anti-slip air inlet

What We Don’t Know:

As far as we can tell, 2020 is the first time Aldi has sold an Easy Home Allergen Remover. The grocer sold a Holmes Allergen Remover back in 2018 for the same price, but we’re not sure if this one is the same or not. Because it appears to be new, we also don’t know how the Easy Home version performs.

  1. Where can you get replacement filters , what model are they and how much do they cost?

  2. I just purchased this and in the user manual it has a card where to purchase the filters. They are $13 and shipping is $10

  3. Was anyone able to find this in Ohio?

  4. Just purchased one today in Maryland. Can’t wait to see how well it works.

  5. I cannot twist open the filter cover to remove the factory packaging. What is the trick?

  6. I purchased the last one at my Aldi’s and I noticed that i have not been congested since. For it’s price, for me, it successfully alleviated my issues and serves it’s purpose.

  7. Question: What is the smallest size particles can it filter out? I’m looking for one to use during Covid-19 to improve the air quality in my home. I just bought two of these. I think I would have liked one that wasn’t as noisy as the fans are in these, but if they will filter out the Coronavirus then that will work. What does “PM2.5” stand for?

  8. I bought one for the room where our two guinnea pigs live, because it smells like a barn. I think it has helped the smell. The filter as an “auto” setting where it supposedly detects allergens and smells and switches into a higher mode. That seemed unlikely, but when I fed the piggies a handful of hay, it immediately switched into high gear. Since I think the hay bothers my allergies, I was impressed!

  9. Does it create ozone

    My red light is on and fixed and will not go out does this mean that I have to replace the filter, or is this a malfunction? Purchased 08/2020 and today is 10/9/2020 the booklet just says’ you must change often but they don’t say how often. Pittsburgh, PA
