Curiously, the Alen A375 name seems not logical. The Alen A350 covers up to 750 square feet and products usually increase the spec as the product number increases. Yet, the A375 only covers up to 650 square feet. That’s backwards from the usual situation.
A bit pricey, but the Winix U450 is bound to be worth the cost for a lot of allergy sufferers. This air purifier delivers solid value for the dollar. The U450 is one of the PlasmaWave air purifiers that has justifiably earned the company a great reputation. All of them are high quality, high cleansing power, and attractive. This one is no exception.
If you did no more than look at a photo you might not see any difference between the Winix FresHome P450, the P300, and the P150. In fact, while they house substantially similar technology, they offer equally substantial differences in specs and air purifying power.
To these old ears the name Winix FresHome P450 sounds more like a classic airplane than a contemporary air purifier. They do have one thing in common, though. They both achieve their purpose with superb technology. It would be difficult to choose one single air purifier that is the best model of any available, taking all factors (including price) into account. But given its quality, feature set, and mid-range price, this model would have to rank near the top.
The Blueair 503 home air purifier is more than very economical, more than highly functional, and more than ultra stylish. It’s all those things, but it’s more than the sum of its parts. This Blueair air purifier has fewer filter stages than many competing models. Fortunately, because of its materials, design, and ability to pump tons of air, it doesn’t seem to need them. Tons of clean air very quick and all the time is proof of that.
Most portable home air purifier manufacturers state several numbers used to measure effectiveness. The most common is the CADR, an acronym that stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate. But what does CADR really mean? That is, how does it relate to what you – the home air purifier consumer – are really interested in: clean air?
The Rabbit MinusA2 SPA-700a home air purifier is one of the most efficient and effective models on the market today. That’s chiefly thanks to excellent design and quality manufacture of its filtration system. But it’s operating characteristics are also highly impressive. It won’t roar when you use it, but you might want to give a joyful shout.
The Winix 9300 and 9500 home air purifiers are both fine units. In fact, they’re so similar in so many respects it can be hard to choose between them. Let’s take a closer look to see if there’s anything in the details to help decide between them.
It’s difficult to find a truly impressive home air purifier at a mid-range price. Often, the truly sensitive have to swallow hard and layout a $1000 to get something that will effectively tackle room air. The Winix 9500 manages to surprise and delight by doing that for less than $300.
Winix Inc has established a place in a very crowded home air purifier market and maintained it well over the past few years. They’ve done that by offering a lot of value for your money. Good examples are the Winix 5300 and the follow-on model, the 5500. Does that make the 5300 obsolete? Should you just automatically purchase the newer model without bothering to look back?
I dislike gushing over products. I try to relate the pros and cons objectively and let the chips fall where they may. But in the case of the Winix Plasmawave 5500 it’s hard to suppress all enthusiasm. This is one of the best mid-range models the company has developed, in a line of already fine air purifiers.
The name isn’t sexy. Its appearance is plain. But the Whirlpool AP51030K air purifier performs its job in a way that will definitely get you excited about breathing clean air again. The AP51030K won’t make you fall in love at first sight. But what it lacks in looks it makes up for in functionality. Within its rated size it clears a lot of air well and does so quietly. The controls are easy to operate and the cost of operation is modest.
I couldn’t say whether the Alen A350 is the best air purifier on the market for the money. It’s always practically impossible to single out one product as the best value. But if there were such an award, it would be in the running.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the best, if not the very best, home air purifier on the market. That’s a bold claim, but one fully justified by the outstanding design, performance, and real-world user reviews of this remarkable machine.
Most home air purifiers have pros and cons. The Austin Air HealthMate is unusual in that both those are on the extreme side of things. The pluses are really outstanding and the minuses are a little worse than usual. Let’s dig in to the details to see why.
The Surround Air XJ-3800 Intelli-Pro is quite a name for an air purifier. It’s well deserved, though. Its space-age appearance gives it a slightly retro Jetsons look, but the design and performance are completely up to date. Superb sensors, outstanding indicators and an amazing filter system make this model one heckuva cleaner, especially considering the modest price.
Being a bit of an odd duck in the home air purifier market, due to its round case, the Honeywell 50250 99.97% Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier does a fine job at a modest price. It’s far from a top of the line model, and it has its pros and cons, but it also sells at far from the top of the line price.
The Winix PlasmaWave 5300 might just be this Korean company’s breakthrough home air purifier. The Winix 5300 doesn’t have as many filtration stages as sometimes found in high-end units. But the filters it does contain leave air noticeably cleaner. For the price there are few that can match its efficiency and quiet operation at doing what’s it’s supposed to do: clean room air.
