Best Rated Hepa Air Purifier

Best Rated Hepa Air Purifier – HEPA filters remove tiny particles from dust, mold, pollen, bacteria, viruses, and more from the air. Thin glass fibers are randomly arranged into a dense, paperlike material that is folded into pleats to create the filter.

As air particles pass through these filters, pollutants are trapped in the fibers. Then, as larger particles stick to the filter, they keep other smaller particles from passing through. A HEPA filter can trap particles as small as 0.3 microns. For reference, the smallest thing the human eye can see is 25 microns, and a strand of hair is between 17 and 180 microns in diameter.

ROUND UP

1.LEVOIT Air Purifiers

Levoit is a favorite on consumer-driven sites like Amazon, and offers a variety of models to fit every price range. The Core 400s is priced just below the range of other high performers, so it’s affordable but also does the job.

Named for the room size it’s designed to filter (400 square feet), the Core 400s features a large HEPA filter. Options for bells and whistles like voice control are also available, and the device is easily portable.

Pros & Cons



2.Winix 5500-2

The Winix line also offers several models, but the 5500-2 is a performer for the budget conscious. There are no smart sensors or fancy apps with this model, but you can use automatic settings.

AHAM Verifide, a manufacturers’ association and product testing program, certified this air purifier’s performance for rooms up to 360 square feet.

Pros & Cons



3.Blueair Blue Pure 211+

Blueair actually makes it onto our list twice. Once for this air purifier that tops several “best HEPA air purifier” lists on consumer sites. Consumer Reports praises the model for having top-rated filtration at both high and low speeds (CADR scores are usually based on filtration at the highest speed only). The second time, below, is for its line of air purifiers overall, which gives an option for most room sizes and budgets.

This portable machine is designed for home use and has washable filter components to extend the life of your filter. This isn’t the quietest model, but it has other features, like a light to remind you when it’s time to change the filter.

Pros & Cons



Most Honorable Mentions in the post

4.Medify MA-40

Medify Air is another popular brand, especially among those who need air purifiers for medical reasons. While it promises to be “quiet,” the quietest setting is about half the volume of a vacuum cleaner, making its noise level a matter of opinion.

This large unit could be difficult to move due to its design and size, but it delivers high levels of filtration for the price. There are a variety of models from this manufacturer to choose from.

5.BISSELL air320

BISSELL is a well-known name in filtration and the air320 purifier evokes the feeling of nostalgia with a retro furniture look.

While the device can be portable, this might be difficult due to its size. The 20-pound device does come with a carrying handle, though. BISSELL offers a number of other models as well.

6.RabbitAir MinusA2

For people looking for style and function, Rabbit Air offers a well-reviewed — albeit expensive — option. These devices come in black and white, or a few famous art prints like Monet’s “Water Lilies” and Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”

Extremely quiet on the lowest settings, you may sacrifice some function for volume and appearance with this model. CADR ratings are lower than some cheaper models, but if you’re looking for function and appearance with high-tech options, this model could suit your needs.

7.Winix AM90

Another Winix, the AM90, uses the same HEPA filter as the 5500-2 and delivered virtually identical performance in our testing. It has a more contemporary design that many people are likely to find more attractive (if you prefer white—the only color option).

It adds Wi-Fi capability and a rudimentary app, and it typically costs a few dollars more than the 5500-2. The almost identical Winix AM80 lacks the AM90’s Wi-Fi capability and comes only in dark gray.

WRAP UP

Best Rated Hepa Air Purifier – When placed into filtration systems like air cleaners and purifiers, HEPA filters can remove 99.97 percent of particles from the air.

These filters were initially used in nuclear plants, but a host of new devices use this technology in products that can help clean the air in your home.
