An air purifier is an almost absolute necessity if you have sinus problems or asthma. However even perfectly healthy people would like to have one, just in order to make sure the air they breathe is clean. And a good air purifier will do just that. It will also remove allergens and kill bacteria. Some models also charge the air with beneficial ions and emit ozone to kill molds and viruses.

However, if you buy a bad model it will not truly clean the air, leaving you with the illusion that you are breathing clean air, while in reality you are not. So it would be good to know the market prices and quality brands before you set to buying an air purifier.

  • Good cleaning capacity

This model makes a point of destroying viruses and bacteria. To do this it uses a HEPA filter in combination with a powerful UV emitter. The filter holds all contaminants and allergens smaller than 0.3 microns. 99.97 percent of all contaminants will be removed.

But the UV filter is definitely its strong point. Even the most resilient viruses and spores die under the emitter’s light. Flu and rhinovirus particles are killed, for example. There is also titanium dioxide coating on the inside of the device, and it neutralizes viruses and bacteria.

Additionally the filter delete all sorts of allergens, be the organic like pet hair or inorganic like formaldehyde. Large particles like hair are held by a prefilter, so the HEPA does not have to do all the work. Therefore the HEPA has to be replaced rarely.

There are three speed settings and the UV is optional. The noise is almost non-existent and you can sleep while it is on.

The recommended room size for one of these is 167 square feet.

Pros:

  • The ultraviolet emitter neutralizes all live bacteria and viruses.
  • The HEPA filter inside lasts very long, because the prefilter holds most of the larger particles.
  • The noise here is very quiet, as many have remarked

Cons:

  • Could be more powerful for this price

The device produces ozone to sterilize the air. This kind of cleaning has the benefit of no filters to buy and replace. The design is also very light and easy to use. Even though it does not have a filter, it removes even most resilient odors and smell.

This model can easily be picked up and taken virtually anywhere where clean air is desired. The ozone spreads quickly and neutralizes allergens over a large territory, killing bacteria and viruses, annihilating smoke and odors and generally making the air healthier to breathe. It can be used to treat mold in an entire house or to remove smells in a used car, for example.

Allergens and odors alike are removed. The machine uses very little electricity and makes minimal noise, as it does not have to drag air through a filter to clean it.

The device can use only US voltage – 110 volt. The manufacturer gives a 1-year warranty with the device.

Pros:

  • Low maintenance – you will never have to buy new filters and replace them
  • High volumes of ozone gas produced
  • Rather inexpensive for a device of its class

Cons:

  • The powerful smell of ozone gas will make ventilation necessary.
