Portable and In-Home Air Purifiers
A portable in-home air purifier can help create a cleaner home and better indoor air quality. It is also helpful for those who have allergies and asthma. Even for those who don't suffer from breathing problems, an in-home air purifier can help everyone breathe a little easier. Vacuuming doesn't remove all the allergens from a room, so for those who share their home with pets, it can be even worse. Pets bring in pet odors and dander that can linger in the air for a while. Air purifiers can help reduce the irritants from second-hand smoke, so they are useful in homes where there is a smoker. The top in-home air purifiers include the Rabbit Air MinusA2, the Winix PlasmaWave 5500-2, and the Coway Mighty Air Purifier.
The Rabbit Air MinusA2 is one of the best purifiers to buy because it has a variety of features and air cleaning power. It comes with a 6-stage process that helps create the cleanest air possible for the home. The pre-filter captures the large particles to help extend the life of the other filters. The medium filter then traps large dust and allergens. The carbon filter will eliminate chemical vapors and odors. The ion generator will help create an ionic field to neutralize contaminants without creating ozone. A customized filter lets the user customize the purifier to specific needs that include toxin absorption, pet allergies, or germ defense. The front panel is customizable in design and color, allowing it to look great in the home. It retails at $549.95.
The Winix PlasmaWave 5500-2 uses patented PlasmaWave technology that isn't found in other purifiers. This feature will give the same air cleaning advantages of an ionizer, but it doesn't produce any harmful ozone or side effects. It's the safest technology on the market. It also uses a True HEPA filter to remove 99.7% of allergens and dust from the home. And with the PlasmaWave technology, it will go a step further to eliminate many other toxic contaminants safely. The purifier also includes a carbon filter that will help reduce smoke and smells. There is a smart sensor that will monitor the air quality in the room and adjust itself to maximize the cleaning power. The purifier is can handle a room up to 360 square feet. It retails at $155.99, which makes it a cheaper option for the technology it provides.
The Coway Mighty Air Purifier continues to be a top pick for many reasons. It features a 4-stage air purification system that includes a pre-filter, True HEPA filter, carbon filter, and ionizer to help eliminate a wide range of odors and pollutants. It has an eco mode that will cut off when it senses the air is clean, making it more energy efficient. This is a feature that many other purifiers don't have. The HEPA filter can last up to one year, and the carbon filter is good for six months before it needs replacing, making it a good option for those who don't want to constantly replace filters. There are two color choices, white and black, allowing the purifier to blend in with the home decor. It can handle a space of up to 360 square feet and is great at removing mold, bacteria, and household odors, in addition to allergens and dust. It retails at $199.99.
