Which Air Purifier Should I Purchase?

With all the unexpected craziness of 2020 (the year NO ONE was sad to say goodbye to), there’s one purchase many of us would love to add to our homes: air purifiers. But when it comes to getting your own, you may have a lot of questions: which should I purchase if I don’t want a filter? If I have a small budget? AIR should I get it from?

Okay, I know, but I couldn’t think of a lot of air-related puns. Forgive me.

Even though I may not have a lot of great puns, I DO have a lot of great info for you. If you’re wondering which air purifier is right for you, look no further: you’ve come to the right place.

Which Air Purifier Should I Purchase If…

I have allergies


Honeywell HPA100 True HEPA Air Purifier

This air purifier is on it’s a-game constantly: it circulates air five times every hour, neutralizes odors, and captures allergens like dust and pet dander. You’ll be breathing a whole lot easier with this guy on the job. And as an added bonus, reviewers say the allergen setting is very quiet. Can you say SCORE? (Or, like, whisper it. Because quiet.)

Germ Guardian True HEPA Filter Air Purifier

Germ Guardian’s air purifier is amazingly allergy-friendly, reducing up to 99.9% of harmful germs as well as tons of allergens (including pollen, mold spores, and pet dander, to name a few). Truthfully, this snippet from Amazon says it all: “Traps allergens pre filter traps dust, pet hair, and other large particles while extending the life of the HEPA filter.”

I am trying to remove smoke smells and other odors


We’ll let AirSoap’s page description do the talking for itself: “AirSoap is a revolutionary new air purifier technology that kills and captures even the smallest viruses HEPA filters can’t. Proven to kill 99.99% of airborne viruses, AirSoap uses washable and reusable collection plates instead of costly HEPA filters. The AirSoap can also reduce allergens like pet dander as well as help purify polluted and smoke-filled air. AirSoap is the best choice for your health, your wallet, and the planet.” (Emphasis added) 

LEVOIT Smart Wi-Fi Air Purifier

As if LEVOIT’s smart air purifier wasn’t cool enough (seriously — you can use voice command on this thing!) it also is a smoke eater and odor eliminator. It works fast and hard to eliminate toxins in the air, and leave your room smelling fresher than before.

I have a large budget 

RabbitAir MinusA2 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier with WiFi

Rabbit Air’s purifier offers six (that’s right, SIX!) stages of purification and deodorization, making it one of the most thorough purifiers on the market — and with the Rabbit Air app, you can control the purifier from anywhere! Although this one will pack a bigger punch to your wallet, over 1200 reviewers say it’s well worth the price (and that it too is great at eliminating odors).

Hathaspace Smart True HEPA Air Purifier 2.0

This medical-grade air purifier is perfect for extra-large rooms. It covers an impressive 1500 sq foot area, replacing 100% of the air every hour! As if that weren’t notable enough, this air purifier contains a smart particle sensor that monitors your air quality, giving you accurate and precise measurements. 

I have a small budget


Pure Enrichment PureZone 3-in-1 Air Purifier 

There’s a reason this gal’s got thousands and thousands of 5-star reviews: it’s a totally affordable, effective workhorse! The stages go as follows: 1 – Pre-filter, 2 – Activated carbon filter, and 3 – True HEPA filter. It cleans the air in your home in a snap, and it doesn’t break the bank doing it!


Germ Guardian HEPA Filter Air Purifier

At just $55, this air purifier is a STEAL! It’s small enough to fit on your desk, but it makes a huge impact. (Seriously, look at one reviewer’s testimonial (and accompanying pictures) of how it cleared her dog’s allergy-induced hives right up!) It traps allergens, reduces odors, and is the perfect on-a-budget filter.

I don’t want filters


Airfree P1000 Filterless Air Purifier

This TOTALLY silent (awesome, right?!) air purifier is a sure bet if you want something that’ll clean the air in your home without a filter. According to its Amazon page, here’s how it works: “With exclusive Patented Thermodynamic TSS Technology, Airfree applies the same concept as boiling water by using heat to destroy microorganisms and attains 100% efficiency at the Airfree air outlet.”


GreenTech Environmental pureAir 50 

Perfect for small spaces, GreenTech’s lightweight air purifier is a plug-in, making it ideal for traveling — it covers an area of up to 325 sq feet. While it needs to be cleaned at least once a month, it’s otherwise pretty low-maintenance (since there are no filters to clean) and does a great job of ridding a single room of odors, pet dander, and the like.
