You can breathe clean air wherever you go with
the Roomaid portable HEPA air purifier from Amaircare. The HEPA filter
removes particle allergens such as dust, smoke, pollen, animal dander, and
mold, and the activated carbon filter provides added protection against odors and smoke. To get the most out of your
Roomaid select an optional VOC Canister. These canisters contain granulated activated carbon (or carbon/zeolite) that
reduces VOC's, auto exhaust, and other noxious fumes and odors. With optional car power adapter, these compact air purifiers
plug into any vehicles lighter and are ideal for those who spend a lot of time in their vehicle but are sensitive to allergens and other pollution.

I received the product a couple weeks ago and I am very pleased. It is quiet even on high. Attractive - blends in with the decor in my cubicle. Air seems better.

I have only had this product for a week but so far I do like it. I use it at work on my desk to help with passing perfumes that I occasionally come into contact with. It obviously is not a IQ or Austin Air but it does what I need it to do. It has done a good job so far, and the low speed is not very loud at all. I ususally kick it into high speed a little noisy when there are some serious perfumes/smells around me. But all in all I like this product.

We are using this unit in our son's nursery and it is great. Since we started using it he has not had a stuffy nose at all. Before putting it in his room he woke up stuffy every morning. We are very pleased with this unit and will be purchasing one for our room also.
Customer Q & A
Q1: I want to use this in a van that does not have a cabin filter. Will this Americare work with the a/c on with the heat on windows closed for both systems?
ALSO the van has NO cabin-circulation button. All outside air.
A: Temperature won't effect the performance, so it will be fine whether using heat or the AC. You might want to get the VOC canister to use instead of the carbon filter that comes standard. The only reason I suggest that is b/c you mentioned only outside and no recirc feature. If you're in more urban areas, the air pollution from exhausts and diesels will be pulled into the van and the VOC canister does a better job with these types of chemical pollutants than the standard carbon filter. Hope that helps!
Q2: When you use the VOC canister, do you also use the regular activated carbon filter with it? It came with no instructions for the VOC canister and we can't seem to fit both in at the same time.
A: Generally, no. That inner carbon filter is thick and with it placed in the airpath, the carbon canister generally doesn't have room to rest inside that cylindrical airway as well.
Q3: I need an air purifier esp. for mold that I can bring on a plane and use in a hotel room. Which is better, the Roomaid RA0001 or the Honeywell 1700-s or 17005? Which is the most effective, and which is the easiest to carry? Thank you.
A: In terms of effectiveness, they are nearly identical for mold spores. Both seal well and offer HEPA filtration. Either of the two Honeywell models is actually the easier ones to carry. The Roomaid was is a great unit, and better with VOC's than the Honeywell, but in terms of carrying it? Not so good. It is essentially two pieces with a thin rubber gasket between the base/motor housing and the upper part/filter. So you can literally pick the top up and off while the base will still be sitting on the desk. So for you use, go with the Honeywell. Either model. The only difference is the 0005 has digital controls while the 0000-S uses manual controls. Hope that helps!

Roomaid HEPA Air Purifier
You can breathe clean air wherever you go with the Roomaid
portable HEPA air purifier. This lightweight and portable air purifier is perfect for
automobiles, offices, hotel rooms, business trips, and vacations.
The HEPA filter removes allergens such as dust, pollen,
animal dander, and mold spores while, the activated carbon post filter works to
remove smoke, auto exhaust, and other
noxious fumes and odors. The integrated seals at the top and bottom
of the Roomaid prevent leaks and ensure that all air gets cleaned.
What I like about the Roomaid air purifier
The HEPA filter lasts for two to five years and removes 99.97% of
particulate matter. As far as filter life, that is comparable to leading brands and far better than
many of the air purifiers you will find on the market today. The activated carbon filter lasts for six months
to a year and removes odors and fumes. The washable foam pre-filter traps large particles and pet hair to help extend
the life of the HEPA filter. Lastly, an optional VOC cartridge provides added protection against
fumes, noxious gases and other VOC's commonly found in and around vehicles. Overall, you can get
four stage filtration with this compact unit.
The Roomaid is compact. It's roughly the size of a basketball and weighs in around 5 lbs. The Auto Adapter kit, with
mounting bracket and AC adapter,
gives you the ability to use this in nearly any vehicle. For those on the go this compact air purifier makes
a big difference in the air you breathe.
There are two optional VOC Canisters that you can purchase to enhance your Roomaid air
purifier. The first is a straight activated carbon canister. It features 100% granulated activated carbon.
The other VOC canister option features an activated carbon/zeolite blend. Zeolite is a porous, positively
charged compound that attracts negatively charged contaminants. Zeolite acts a "molecular sieve" by
trapping specific gases such as carbon dioxide, formaldehyde and other hydrocarbon pollutants.
What I do not like about the Roomaid air purifier
The largest drawback to the Roomaid is also likely one of its greatest strengths. The small size
and low CFM makes it suited for only very small spaces. For use in a cubicle or motor vehicle, the Roomaid
is perfect, but once you get beyond confined spaces of roughly 100 sq. ft. the Roomaid begins
to lose its effectiveness.
In summary, the Roomaid is portable, quiet, energy
efficient, and affordable. This unit offers superior air filtration for small spaces and
for the person that spends a lot of time in your car commuting.
Because of its small size, the Roomaid also makes a good vacation,
business trip, and overall travel companion. For larger spaces, take
a look at another one of our air purifier options.
