Best Air Purifier for Viruses

Best Air Purifier for Viruses – A certain pesky little microbe may be one of the main reasons why air purifiers are enjoying such sterling sales right now.

Whether that’s sole reason to splash out on a model is up to the individual, but air purifiers really do excel at removing dust particles, smoke, pet dander, pollen, bacteria, mould, skin cells and other microscopic particles from the home environment. The models here do it automatically with zero intervention.

ROUND UP

1.Blueair Blue Pure 411

In fact, you can even choose the fabric pre-filter cover from a selection of five subtle tones to suit your furnishings.

Crucially, this model is equipped with a particulate sensor so it will automatically detect poor air quality and react accordingly. It also has three manual air speeds.

Like the vast majority of air purifiers, the Blueair won’t cool you down because its fan points in an upwards direction. Nevertheless for efficient air cleaning on a smaller scale, it ticks all the right boxes.

Pros & Cons



2.Honeywell HPA300

I like the looks of this air purifier, and it’s easy to maintain and has widely-available filters. However, it used a lot of electricity and is loud on high speed. Plus, its performance in the air purifying tests was unimpressive.

Whether that’s sole reason to splash out on a model is up to the individual, but air purifiers really do excel at removing dust particles, smoke, pet dander, pollen, bacteria, mould, skin cells and other microscopic particles from the home environment.

Pros & Cons



3.Dyson Pure Hot + Cool

This metre tall Dyson is the most expensive model here but then it is superbly built, classy looking and chock full with some of the best air purifying tech currently available.

This model is also a cooling fan because its air expulsion vents are forward facing rather than upward facing like the vast majority of models. This means it’s a perfect choice for keeping cool in the summer months. However, a simple tap of a button on the magnetic remote control switches it to diffuse mode, whereupon the air is gently diverted towards the rear via a pair of exterior side vents.

4.IZSOHHOME Philips0

The Philips 2000i is perfect for medium to large rooms up to 79 m² and comes with three main Auto programs: Allergen mode, General mode and Bacteria & Virus mode, which boosts the airflow to ‘quickly reduce bacteria & viruses’. When it’s time to tuck up in bed, select the Sleep mode and you won’t hear a whisper from it.

The Philips’ sensors constantly measure the level of particulates around the appliance at any given time and the relevant number is displayed on the top panel as a PM2.5 reading (PM2.5 refers to microscopic atmospheric particulate matter that have a diameter less than 2.5 micrometres, about 3% the diameter of a human hair).

Pros & Cons



5.Mila Air Purifier

The Mila has already garnered a wealth of positive reviews and deservedly so because it genuinely pushes the design envelope with a thoughtfully and amusingly styled app that bombards the user with real-time info galore on pretty much every bad air thing in the house, including deadly CO.

Mila’s tech bods have clearly analysed the social networking arena because the interface is full of light-hearted lingo and smiley faces that encourage you to dig deeper into the app and further analyse the air purity of your abode. It’s something that goes well beyond what other air purifiers provide, Dyson notwithstanding.

Pros & Cons



WRAP UP

Best Air Purifier for Viruses –  An air purifier limits the number of triggers for asthma sufferers and anyone with respiratory difficulties, says Ravi Pandey, MD, an internal medicine specialist on staff at several South Florida hospitals. An additional health benefit is limiting virus transmission, he said (though don’t expect it to eliminate the risk of contracting coronavirus).

An air purifier is also helpful for cleaning the air when simply opening the window won’t do the job, such as when the pollen counts are high or if you live in an area where smog or wildfires are common.
