I am thinking about purchasing a home air purifier and wanted some opinions.

Anyone use a HEPA filter system?
Which one?
How do you like it?
Do they really work as advertised?

I was thinking of buying this one just because it is inexpensive and can be purchased locally.
Holmes HEPA tower air purifier (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3264929)

These things can be found anywhere from $40 to $1000+. I looking to filter one room, about 120 sqft.

The guy I bought my old house from worked for Mingledorff which is a HVAC distributor. My HVAC was loaded out and had the UV Air purifier in the duct work. It seemed to work extremely well. I would assume this is going in the nursery. For just a little more or the same price you should be able to purify the whole house. It is a pretty easy install if you have a pair of tin snips, some aluminum tape and can do simple electrical work.
