Air Purifiers

The air we breathe into our bodies is just as important as the food and beverages we consume. Air quality undoubtedly ranks as among the most significant factors on our health, making air purification one of our top priorities. With the knowledge from our experienced staff, our hands-on testing and training, and the feedback from our neighbors, friends and clients like you, we have personally selected each of our Air Purifiers to best protect you and your family’s health. Our primary criterion for selecting an Air Purifier is its ability to effectively remove airborne particles. These ultra-fine particles are actually the most harmful to your health and represent 90% of the air pollution we breathe. Many of us are affected by allergies or asthma problems which can be exasperated by the harmful contaminants found inside our homes and workplaces such as dust mites, mold spores, pollen, and pet dander. A quality Air Purifier with a True HEPA filtration system can help to significantly reduce many of these harmful contaminants and remove airborne particles, giving you the ability to breathe easily.

For a quiet bedroom, you might consider our Alen or Blueair air purifiers.
For open living areas, you might consider our top of the line IQAir Healthpro air purifiers.

How To Choose An Air Purifier

  • Sizing Your Room and the Right Size Air Purifier. The size of the room is a significant factor when choosing an air purifier because in order to properly clean the air in a room, you will need to exchange the air in the room several times each hour. The more efficient an air purifier is, the less air changes that will be needed to clean and maintain the air quality. Optimally, we recommend a range of 4 to 6 air exchanges an hour with 2 air exchanges only being acceptable with the most efficient of the HEPA air purifiers, which can clean effectively in one pass. When cleaning the air for gases, odors, and chemicals it is better to run the air purifier at lower speeds so the gas molecules will have more contact time with the activated carbon. This means that it is best to buy an air purifier that is rated for a larger sized room, so you can run it effectively on lower speeds which has the added benefit of being quieter.
  1. Efficiency Level of your Air Purifier;  There is a great deal of variation in the efficiency of air purifiers on the market and their resulting numerical efficiency is the number given to the percentage of particulates which are trapped in a filter on one single air exchange. More is better and our best air purifiers trap particulates in one pass at well over 90%.The best air purifiers continue to perform at high efficiency until a filter change is required.
     
  2. The Importance of a Pre-filter for your Air Purifier;  The pre-filter is a very important feature of an air purifier and quite frankly it is one in which most manufacturers cut corners. A pre-filter will extend the life of the main HEPA filter by trapping larger particulates and also extends the life of a gas filter if the air purifier contains a gas filter. The IQAir has pre-filters second to none with Airpura being the runners up.
     
  3. Filter Change Indicator Lights;  We find a filter change indicator light to be extremely helpful in reminding one of the optimal time to change a filter especially as the machine is more accurate than the user's judgment call. It also helps to not changing the filter too late, which is sub optimal for health, or too early which comes hard on your pocketbook.
     
  4. Ease Of Changing Filters;  The best air purifiers are those requiring no tools to replace the filters. We prefer units where you simply pop out a door, pull the filter to be replaced out and replace it with the new filter. The filters of some air purifiers are tedious and difficult to change causing the average person to delay changing them beyond their optimal change dates. The easiest air purifiers to change filters on are the Blueair, Winix, and Alen air purifiers. The IQAir filters are quite easy too when you have done it once.
     
  5. Weight and Mobility of Your Air Purifier;  Most but not all room air purifiers are on casters, so you will be able to push them from room to room. However, you may have needs for a pick up and go type of air purifier whether to travel or for your cubicle at work. We have several small and lightweight air purifiers which fulfill those criteria.
     
  6. Air Purifiers, Ozone Emissions and Outgassing;  Any ozone emission, which is a toxic substance, is not desirable regardless of whether the person has allergies, asthma, or multiple chemical sensitivities. However, the effects are usually worse for these people because ozone is an irritant to the respiratory system. We test for ozone and no air purifier that we sell emits ozone.
     
  7. Upkeep Costs for an Air Purifier;  This is another factor which is often overlooked by the potential purchaser of an air purifier. More expensive air purifiers are often the least expensive to maintain and will save you money over the life of the machine.
     
  8. The Warranty and Reliability of Air Purifiers;  The best warranties are those offering five years or more on the main fan and motor parts. A reliable air purifier should have no problems with the motor, fan, and electrical components and controls during that time. The rest of the air purifier consists of the filters, which need periodically cleaning or replacement.

We have rank ordered our air purifier manufacturers for you in order of our overall preference. We offer a more detailed analysis on the manufacturers' brand pages but we have given you a Birdseye view below. Please understand that all these manufacturers produce air purifiers that made the cut when we tested them, while a great deal more products were sent back to the manufacturer.
  1. IQAir Air Purifiers   A king amongst princes, and try as they may, while other air purifier manufacturers may nip at their heels here and there, in the end IQAir reigns supreme. Put simply, this manufacturer has done everything right, and when we want to recommend the best air purifier for someone with serious allergy and asthma problems, it is to IQAir that we turn to first. When we tested these air purifiers, virtually nothing escaped their HyperHEPA filter. This is very important as lung penetrating particles are smaller than even a regular HEPA filter can capture. Packed with superior technological features such as a huge capacity pre-filter, filter change indicator lights, a HEPA filter efficiency rating second to none and six fan-speed settings. IQAir air purifiers are as good as it gets. No expense has been spared in the manufacturing of this air purifier and it shows; you get what you pay for.
     
  2. Airgle Air Purifiers   This manufacturer’s new line of air purifiers wowed us with their top notch performance, ultra quiet operation and sophisticated, modern design. The attention to detail and high quality components that go into an Airgle air purifier immediately gained our respect; and along with outstanding testing results, earned them our hard to attain 5-star rating. We expect the Airgle air purifiers will quickly become a popular solution for a variety of air quality concerns. Each Airgle air purifier is AHAM certified and Energy Star qualified.
     
  3. Blueair Air Purifiers   A long time favorite with both us and our customers and for good reason. They combine ionizer, electrostatic, carbon and HEPA type filter technologies which result in a very high filtration effectiveness and with no external ozone. They gain very high marks from us for their ability to deliver large amounts of purified air, as certified by AHAM. Also quietly does it, making them a top choice for a bedroom air purifier. Their filter changes are exceptionally easy and with recent upgrades to include filter life monitoring and pre-filters, this manufacturer is still managing to keep pace and ahead of most other air purifier manufacturers.
     
  4. Airpura Air Purifiers   This manufacturer has shot up the charts in our air purifier favorites category. They have done almost everything perfectly, only falling down in our opinion with difficult filter changes [use a screwdriver and turn the machine upside down] and lack filter change monitoring. Otherwise, Airpura has learned from the mistakes of others and does a first class job at producing air purifiers which are carefully tailored to a variety of special needs, and all for a very fair price. Each of their three filters is of excellent quality and what is unique is the air purifier units are modular and can be refigured if your application needs change at a later date.
     
  5. Airfree Air Purifiers   This is the only air purifier manufacturer that is not based around a HEPA or HEPA like filter. In fact, their models have no filters at all, relying instead on a unique patented technology for the sterilization and incineration of allergens. Thus there is no maintenance costs associated with any Airfree model, and we have had excellent experience with their reliability. Since Airfree purifiers rely on natural air flow in a room because they do not have a fan, we see a single unit as better for a small room. They are also a manufacturer that backs up their claims with serious verifiable research. However, we would not recommend them for serious gas and odor removal and you will not find that household dust is reduced - but your allergies will subside.
     
  6. Austin Air   Air Purifiers are extremely popular with our customers. They offer no nonsense, no frills approach to air purification but they put their money into what really counts. Very good gas and odor filtration and the air filtration effectiveness is above average. We still do not like that Austin Air combined their gas and HEPA filters as these filters degrade at a different pace than each other. Like Airpura their filters are difficult to change requiring a screwdriver and turning the machine upside down. But none the less, for our customers with serious allergy problems they are high up on our air purifier manufacturer list.
     
  7. Alen Air Purifiers   Alen has been gaining ground very fast with our customers and for good reason. They have wisely positioned themselves as providing a good air purifier for the Everyman. They ave neat designs, above average filtration effectiveness, quiet operation, very easy filter changes, low energy consumption and a lifetime warranty. We would not recommend them for serious gas and odor removal. But for an all purpose air purifier at a moderate price they are well worth a look.
     
  8. Winix Air Purifiers   A relatively new manufacturer for us, but one which we find impressive. Winix air purifiers are well made with a pleasing space saving design, easy filter changes, offer some nice auto monitoring features, are quiet and Energy Star compliant. Best of all they offer above average performance in air filtration. These are well worth a looking at since the price is a knock out for what is being offered. We would not recommend them for serious gas and odor removal.
     
  9. Humanscale Air Purifiers   This is a new air purifier manufacturer for us, but the company behind it has been around for a long time. While this company only offers one air purifier, its Personal Zone Air Purifier offers a near perfect clean air bubble around your breathing zone, which we think has tremendous applications in both bedrooms and for your desk at work. We would not recommend their air purifier for serious gas and odor removal.
     
  10. Whirlpool Air Purifiers   We feature a subset of Whirlpool air purifiers and cherry picked the best ones for you. What we like about the ones we selected is that these air purifiers offer excellent filtration efficiency and sizable room coverage at a very affordable price. We would not recommend them for serious gas and odor removal.
