On top of sanitizing high-touch surfaces and frequently washing your hands, one way to ensure your home is a healthy one is by using an air purifier. As its name insists, these enticing devices are specially designed to capture and eliminate harmful tiny particles in the air for extra protection against pollutants, allergens and seasonal airborne transmission. If that’s enough convincing for you, there’s no better time to hop on the bandwagon of this healthy home must-have.
But given that there are so many options of air purifiers that are now available on the market, let alone that indoor air can have levels of certain pollutants up to five times higher than the air outdoors, you may be asking yourself: Which is the best kind to purchase?
Like a humidifier, you’ll want to pick the right size purifier that best suits the size of your room for optimal efficiency. The bigger the room, the bigger the purifier. But in case you’re looking for a personal air purifier that can easily fit on your nightstand, you’ll love this one that we found on Amazon. Backed up by 4.5-star rating and more than 900 customer reviews is the Levoit Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter.
Made with a top-tier filter), this compact yet powerful device is powered to remove 99.97 per cent of dust, pollen, smoke, odour, allergies, mould spores, and pet dander trapped and circulating in the air. Plus it offers a refreshing airflow of up to three customizable fan-speeds.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $60 (originally $70)
Not only does its lightweight design makes it convenient to move and compact size doesn't take up too much space, but it operates quietly as you rest or go about your day at home.
“After much sourcing, I decided to go with this purifier. We had a Bionaire tower that no longer worked and the air in the room quickly became stagnant. Having children with allergies and a busy household with pets too, the air quality in my children's bedrooms is very important. Within 12 hours of use, there was a noticeable difference. In the highest setting, there is a bit of noise, so I will run the higher speed in the daytime and the second speed during sleep times. There is no noise whatsoever on the first setting. I am very happy with my purchase and will be ordering a third for my bedroom as well!” reads one five-star review.
“I am living in a basement apartment and the air was so stale and musty but after using the air purifier the musty smell has gone away and the air is so much fresher. It gives off a nice cool breeze and is quite quiet on low and medium settings but even the high speed is not loud enough to be annoying. I liked it so much I got a second one for my mother’s room in the nursing home. She says she can notice the difference in her room already. I used to move my first one from the living room to the bedroom at night but they are so affordable I decided to get another one for the bedroom. You will not be disappointed in this item,” reads another.
To get the most out of the Levoit Air Purifier, it is recommended to replace the filter every six to eight months.
