Holmes HAP9424BF-TUA/ HAP9424B-NU is solidly made for a HEPA tower air purifier although you could tell the black plastic design doesn’t age well and is consider tall for its segment. Nevertheless its light weight framework makes up for the hassle-free portability. Manual dial knob, filter change indicator and air inlet are all located at the front of Holmes HAP9424BF-TUA/ HAP9424B-NU. Cover is removable for filter change although its slightly tedious due to the shape of the air purifier.
