Air Purifiers

These are our HEPA Air Purifiers that are top rated by our most trusted sources, and which we personally recommend after all our research:

  • LEVOIT H13 True HEPA Filter Air Purifier for Allergies and Pets, Smokers, Smoke, Dust, Mold, and Pollen
    • a great value option and highly rated on Amazon, is near top of the category for HEPA filters on Amazon and mentioned as a good value option by our other top sources
    • we got this one and use it in the baby’s room for extra clean air, and so far we have had good experiences with it (although have not in any way tested the air cleaning properties)
  • Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier with True HEPA and Eco Mode   
    • highly rated in a few of our go-to sources for all around quality (looks like does good for a 361 sq room, which would be good for the bedroom overnight…
  • Blueair Pure 411
    • is very highly rated by some of our top trusted sources
  • Dyson TP04 HEPA
    • more expensive dyson model, and has good ratings, but seems inferior to cheaper options mentioned above
  • Dyson Pure Cool Me – Personal Purifying Fan
    • less expensive dyson, and seems like personalized version of above
    • on good sale now, but may be inferior to options above, and for more personalized use
    • does not give “cooling” like what you get from an AC, and people who rated this item that were expecting it to cool off their rooms tended to be pretty upset with the purchase 

 

We also recommend checking out some sites that rate these devices as a business, like Consumer Reporting (which has the resources to test categories like this and name to be trusted) or the air purifier review at Wirecutter (one of our favourites), which tested and found these results comparing some of the models listed above:
