Investing in a good air purifier can improve your daily life. But while selecting the right air purifier, you need to make sure it is strong enough to clean large spaces, quiet enough to stay on at night without disturbing your sleep, and affordable enough that it is practical to have one for each room in the house.
After a lot of research and comparison, here are our top 3 air purifiers that are available in the market currently:
Coway AP-1512HH Mighty
The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty can reduce heavy smoke pollution in fairly large spaces by as much as 99.6% within just 30 minutes. And it can remove 70% pollution in large spaces within an hour. This powerful machine offers great value for an up-front price of less than $200 (come up to around $470 over five years if you factor in electricity and filter replacement costs).
The Mighty’s soundless operation, compact form, and automatic display light shut-off features make it especially well suited to bedrooms. Plus, its filters can easily last you a year or more.
The Winix 5500-2, if used continuously in most homes, can bring the pollution and particle content in your air to almost zero within one hour and keep it there. Its exceptional performance promises to capture 99.9% of the smoke in just 30 minutes on the high setting, and 97.2% on its medium-high setting. While it isn’t completely silent like the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty, it emits a 40 decibel sound that is easy to live with. Its sleek design and attractive looks give the Coway stiff competition.
Blueair Blue Pure 311 Auto
The Blueair Blue Pure 311 Auto claims to reduce smoke levels by 94.2% on medium and 99.9% in 30 minutes on high. The ‘auto function’ introduced in late 2020 monitors the room’s air quality and automatically adjusts the mode and fan speed. That’s not all; the Blueair Blue Pure 311 Auto is super energy efficient, is very quiet, and comes with a smart control panel that automatically dims the lights after you are done using it. It comes with an attractive, tweed-like cover that can be removed for easy cleaning. The only setback is the filters need to be replaced every six months.
