Best Room Air Purifier
June 28, 2019

The wellness industry has become a multi-trillion dollar economy, but no oil, supplement, or exercise will make all that much of a difference if you’re not breathing in clean air on a regular basis. Oxygen is the fuel that keeps your body running, and if every breath you take is also filled with gross chemicals, particles, or other unwanted materials, needless to say that you won’t be running at full speed. Everything from smog to pet dander can slow you down and hurt your immune system, which makes a room air purifier one of the best investments you can make for you and your family’s health.

Hey, don’t worry — now that we’ve convinced you how smart an idea it would be to buy a room air purifier, we’re not going to leave you hanging when trying to pick out the best room air purifier for your own home. Instead, we at MASSE offer recommendations for the best room air purifiers, written by real users who have really used the room air purifiers they’re endorsing. You don’t have to worry that they’re leading you astray, either, because we filter out all paid reviews and sponsored posts, so you’re only getting fresh, clean, insightful recommendations. It’s a breath of fresh air compared to most online shopping, right?

Room air purifiers come in a number of different styles and work in several different, some of which are very distinct. The most common room air purifiers use replaceable filters to catch larger particles like dust mites, allergens, and pet dander. Buy one of those and you’ll see pretty quickly just how gnarly the air is in most places. Some of those room air purifiers also catch much smaller particles like germs thanks to their ultraviolet light capabilities. There are others that use activated carbon to capture the tiniest pollutants like gas and smells, though there are some issues to note with those. With so many options, we’re here to help you find the room air purifier that works best for you!

Not many room air purifiers can also function as a conversation piece, but this idiosyncratic Dyson Pure Cool Link Air Purifier looks like a piece of modern art. Of course, that’s just a bonus — it’s also very effective at filtering pollutants and irritants like pet dander, allergens, dust, mold spores, and bacteria. It serves as a fan, too, and our users love that it can be controlled by an app that also measures air quality, humidity and temperature. This room air purifier really does it all!

Air Purifier

$89.00By: Levoit
Some room air purifiers have the unfortunate effect of producing ozone, another kind of air pollutant, which definitely defeats the purpose of having a filtration system in the first place. LEVOIT’s small, stylish air purifier filters out everything from dander to dust without any of the nasty byproducts, and does so incredibly quietly so that you can have it on all night, making it a perfect bedroom air purifier. It circulates all of a room’s air four times an hour, too, so you know you’re getting the cleanest air possible.

5300-2 Air Purifier

$139.58By: Winix
Winix’s 5300-2 air purifier sounds like it’s a robot from the Terminator movies and while we don’t think it’s from the future, it definitely treats bad air pollutants and particles like the T-1000 treated minor thugs. This room air purifier is programmed to stay vigilant, with a monitor that detects pollutants in the room and adjusts between its four fan speeds to provide the power needed to suck them up. It also is able to recognize light levels in a room, and when it’s dark, the 5300-2 will go to its most quiet mode so you can sleep. Our users love this thing and say it came well-recommended to them by people who need heavy duty purifiers.

The Molekule room air purifier has a simple design and advanced filtration technology. Our users love its simple presentation and the fact that it can adjust to different room sizes, as well as the fact that it delivers fresh air in many different situations. The room air purifier is able to do that because it runs the air through two different filters — a “pre-filter” that captures larger particles like dust and pollutants, then a PECO-filter that handles the smaller items like bacteria, viruses, and smoke.

Guardian Technologies’ small room air purifier makes a huge difference in the air quality in your home thanks to its three different filter settings. The GermGaurdian AC4020 is designed to first capture larger particles like allergens and dust, then use charcoal filters to grab common odors, and finally, utilize UV lights to kill germs, viruses, and other tiny pollutants. Our users really love this room air purifier, saying it helps with their allergies and fits in any room!
