Best Air Purifiers

10. Dyson Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“This is a super high quality purchase. In a field with multiple options, I decided to go with Dyson due to being impressed with their line of vacuum cleaners, of which I have had two over the years. I decided on the shorter, heater model (versus the taller, fan-only model) because I didn’t want my hyperactive dog, or any future children, to easily knock it over and damage it. In the end, I think this was a good decision for me, because the heater setting is actually more handy than I imagined. I like using this unit as a small temperature stabilizer for my apartment, as well.” – Austin

9. Guardian Technologies Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“So I do love the GermGuardian it works extremely well, and as a long time allergy sufferer it has been a godsend. Honestly though the Filters are extortion which led me to find a very inexpensive alternative to their insanely priced filters. You simply purchase a 14 x 24 X 1 allergen grade home air filter (pictured), and cut it down to fit the unit. This makes about 3 to 4 filters that work just as well and possibly better if you get really high quality filters. I attached a couple pictures, one shows the type of filter and the other is a cut down filter after three months of use (it used to be pure white). The home filter cost me $20, and after cutting it up into 3 pieces each filter for the guardian really only cost me around $7. I attached a link to the Filtrete brand filter which is $32 for a 2 pack which is even cheaper than the Honeywell one I got from Home Depot. Anyway don’t be fooled and don’t over pay. ” – Alex Walker

8. Alen BreatheSmart Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“We are city cats, and we now live in an urban area with lots of cars and busses. We aren’t happy with the amount of dust and housekeeping we have to do here. Mom says our fur is a problem too, shedding, and all of that. Mom kept getting ads for Molekule on her iPhone, but it was SO expensive. There wouldn’t have been anything left for cat toys if she had bought those. Then we read the reviews! And we saw how wonderful Alen air Purifiers were, and how well they performed compared to Molekule and many other brands. So we told our mom. She now has two, one in the living room and one in our bedroom. So now when we wake up in the morning Mom’s eyes aren’t red, and she has a lot more energy to play with us. (And she is in a better…mood.) We also like how soothing the sound is in both rooms.
So thank you for helping us out here. Sincerely, Toonces and Romeo…(Smith)” – Wyllowpatty

7. IQAir Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“I bought this several weeks ago, and after using it every day, I can breathe again freely, and have not used my albuterol inhaler one single time since. I have not breathed freely like this in years, I wish I had found this unit years ago. I also bought a Shark vaccuum (full disclosure) too, which also helps remove the settled dust on the floor carpets. At night, I crank this thing up to 4 then keep it at 1 or 2 during the day. The air is fresh every morning, no more wheezing, it’s worth the money. Anyone with asthma should give this a try. I almost gave up but then dropped the cash, it’s a lot of $$$ but IT’S WORTH IT, it’s an investment in my health. It really inhales all the dust/pollen in the room and filters it.” – W

6. Bissell Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“We have purchased many air purifiers over the years. This is the best one by far! My husband and I have noticed a huge change in the air quality since we started using it. Both of us suffer from allergies and I have asthma. This has really helped control the dust and pet dander in our home. We have a large male golden retriever and the air purifier has kept the dog dander and odor at bay. It is also very quiet, simple to use and it is portable if you want to put it in a different room. It has a sleek design and it has a nice digital display that shows the quality of the air in your home. I would highly recommend this product. It is money well spent!” – KC

5. Pure Enrichment Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“This air purifier is extremely quiet and very effective. I appreciate the flexibility of being able to choose when to use the ionizer and the uv light (both are generally on). When running on the lowest 2 settings it is barely perceptible; listening to music. watching TV or conversing in the same room is not impacted at all.
It is easy to move with the handle on the top, and I like that the air movement is from the front on this one so it doubles as a fan for the dog! Its relatively small footprint makes it handy for the kitchen/sitting area.
We now have three air purifiers (breathing problems here) and each one has its particular strengths. This is the most recent purchase. Very pleased with it. *initially there was a slight plastic-y odor to it. Ran it in the garage for a full day on level 3 and the “new” smell vanished. Don’t be disheartened if you detect a smell at first as it definitely goes away.” – Jubilee

4. Winix Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“As a Safety Engineer, I know how important it is to keep the air in your house clean. We breath 20.9% oxygen, 78% nitrogen and the rest is just “other stuff.” That being said, a HEPA filter is the only way to go when trying to mitigate the junk we breath. This not only has a HEPA filter, but also a carbon filter, and even a third filter/screen just to keep the other filters clean from debris; meaning if something nasty is in your air, this will take it out.
Once the air flows through the filters, it is redistributed cleanly through the vent on top of the unit. What I really like is that you can adjust the fan speed to four different speeds (low to high), and you even have a sleep mode to shut off the lighting and drops the db lv to almost nothing. Even with the fan on high, I don’t find the noise all that loud.
The coolest feature about this purifier is the three light system. If you put this unit on automatic mode, the fans will adjust themselves automatically depending on how dirty the air is. For example, if I vacuume near this, the red light comes on indicating that there is a high concentration particulates in the air, so it will automatically turn the unit on high, but if there is a low about, it turns orange. The fan will lower to a medium rate, but if the air quality is good, it stays blue. This also happens when the dog walks and/or stirs in front of it.
The plasma wave technology can also be turned off with a push of a button. I was first concerned of ozone, but what this unit puts off is far below what the EPA recommends for this type of unit. It also comes with a remote which is very handy, and not to mention, it really looks nice.
If you have allergies like me, smoke or just feel that your air quality is not at its best, I 100% recommend this product.” – TRZ

3. Levoit Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“I almost left them a bad review… So I plug in the unit and everything looks great: it’s super quiet, everything as described. I put it in the “auto” mode and the light is blue, which indicates that air quality is good. I live in Los Angeles and with all the talk about how our air is terrible, I expected to see the light to turn–at the very least–green or yellow. So I was just wondering if the thing was even doing anything? I left it on for another day. The first time I realized it’s actually working was when I was cooking fish and there was quite a bit of smoke in the room. The light went from blue to green to red in a matter of minutes and the unit became noisier and it was obvious it’s working hard. As soon as the smoke cleared, it went back to it’s normal, quiet, state. But the best came in about three days. I noticed there was significantly less dust on my TV stand. Normally, it’s all dusty in 3 days or so. There was hardly any dust in a week. So, it definitely works in filtering out dust, which is a win-win in my book: less cleaning and cleaner air to breath!” – Vladas Krivickas

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“We have a 105 pound German Shepherd that sheds constantly. He’s a new addition to our family. It’s been an ongoing battle with dog hair and dust. This air filter system is not only quite, it does the job! Before getting it we had to dust ever day. It’s been two days since we got it and there is absolutely no dust or hair. I AM EXTREMELY IMPRESSED. We highly recommend this product.” – A. Ramsey

1. Alen Paralda Air Purifier

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“I am allergic to my cat but this does a LOT to combat that. Keep it running 24 hours a day, only adjusting the air speed if needed. Glad to see that the price has come down— I bought a 2nd one. Hope that the more that are in use will result in lower filter prices. Staff at the Alen Company were very helpful the one time I needed to ask a question.
Highly Recommend and believe me, I don’t do that very often!” – Aged Techie
