    1. A Blueair Store air purifier with a much more stylish look than most with its fabric exterior which allows for 360-degree air intake. It is the perfect blend of form and function!

    Promising review: "Love this air purifier! It has great design and I really like the auto feature with color indicator. It is super sensitive to changes in the air, which makes me feel good about how well it works. It is very quiet once it has cleared the air so if you are looking for some white noise, this is not for you. Overall, great product...already purchased a second one!" —ShoeLoverAnonymous

    Price: $119.99

    2. A Levoit air purifier that comes with the option for a filter that specializes in helping with pet dander. And the timer is great for when you want it to turn off after you leave for work.


    Promising review: "I only just got this yesterday and used it last night for the first time but I feel compelled to write a quick review already. This thing is a game. changer. Ever since moving to Texas, I suffer from terrible seasonal allergies. I never have in my life until now (turns out I'm allergic to a handful of trees that are native around here. Fun.) For the past few weeks my mornings have had me waking up congested and unable to breathe, blowing wads of snot out of my nose (sorry!), and with a itchy/scratchy sore throat. First thing I do is take an allergy pill and wait in misery until it finally seems to kick in around mid morning. I don't know why I never thought to get an air purifier. I guess when I thought of air purifiers I'd always think of the fancy Dyson ones that cost hundreds of dollars. I mean, puh-lease. Not happening. Then I found this little guy. It says you only need to run it for about 15-20 minutes on high to cycle the room but I set that little baby on high with a two hour timer and let it run. When it was time for bed, I set the 6 hour timer on sleep mode. The sleep mode is great. It's a lot more quiet than I expected. I woke up this morning with NO allergy symptoms. None. No congestion, absolutely clear nasal passages, and NO sore throat at all! I'm blown away. After the first night and the relief I was FINALLY able to feel from my allergies this morning I absolutely rate this thing 5 stars. Worth every penny!" — JJ

    Price: $99.99

    3. A Partu air purifier with a fragrance sponge so that you can add a splash of essential oil to add a soothing smell to the fresh air pumping into your space. Plus the reusable filter means that you won't waste money on new ones!,

    Promising review: "Bigger then I thought it would be but works great so far. I bought it for my desk at work and I do notice a difference, as I can breathe easier. Barely notice the sound as it just sounds like a fan." — Marilyn

    Price: $49.99

    4. A Membrane Solutions air purifier with the three-in-one True HEPA filter because you deserve it. It has, get this, a three-stage filtration process. It is designed for large rooms and claims to clear the air in a room in as little as 36 minutes.

    The white air purifier

    Promising review: "I have a big room and I just picked up an air quality meter, very high end at that, and I found the smaller clean air machine was too small for the room. With that in mind, I found this one, much larger, really nice specs, and decided to try it out. Wow, this one pushes some air, and silent too. Very easy to remove the filter and it has really nice, low-decibel fan in there. Timer works great too, cuts off exactly where it was supposed to. The fan speed is nice too, low noise no matter what speed, is really nice. It all boils down to a large room, needs a large size machine, large rooms need to pull in more air, is what I have found when testing between the small ones and the big ones. The air quality meter showed room safe in about 60 minutes where the numbers dropped significantly and stayed that way. No cons, this one is really nice, where I am VERY happy with this purchase." — Richard Kissick

    Price: $129.99

    5. A Winix air purifier that has a washable filter designed to capture oders as well as toxins because there is no sense leaving nasty smells if we are already cleaning the air anyway. It is designed to filter rooms as big as 360 square feet.,

    Promising review: "After carefully reviewing several models I chose this one and I've been very happy with it. I love the auto mode and how quiet it is, even when the fan is three-quarters cranked. The backlighting is very nice and I'm happy with the styling. It blends in well. I would say it's more quiet than my fridge, PC, or laptop. Hasn't been a bother at all.

    Being of seemingly simple design, I did worry that it wouldn't detect and couldn't filter small particles. Boy was I wrong! My teenage daughter and I were sitting on the couch when she suddenly let loose with a fart. Maybe one or two seconds later the purifier went from blue to orange. We about died laughing! It filtered that fart for about 10 minutes or so, then went back to blue. An hour later she let another go and this time it went quickly from blue to orange to red. We completely lost it! Hilarious. So if you're wondering whether this thing really does pick up and filter what is in your air, trust me. It does!" — LT

    Price: $157.60

    6. A Toppin air purifier that has a neon blue light which makes for great mood lighting. But if you're here for air purification, the four-in-one filters will fit the bill nicely.

    Promising review: "This is my first time to buy such a product, I'm glad I bought it! After two nights in the room, my daughter has been suffering from constant congestion, and she is excited to tell me that she likes the air purifier because she has little congestion this morning. As far as I'm concerned, this purifier is a miracle. I'm going to buy two more and put them in the other room. It's very convenient in size. It fits my daughter's bedside table. The night-light feature is a good touch." — Marvin Cardoza

    Price: $49.99

    7. A GermGuardian air purifier with a UV-C light along with a HEPA filter to get even smaller germs out of the air.,

    Promising review: "Although I dust & vacuum fairly often, I noticed I still had issues with my asthma when spending periods of time in my room (in particular when I slept at night). I was using my inhaler much more often than usual and I couldn't understand why my symptoms seemed worse in my bedroom. I've seen advertisements for air purifiers in the past (like the ones that claimed to blow 'happy ions' in your face) & figured they were the 'snake oil' of air filtration systems. It wasn't until nursing school when I started to learn about HEPA filters for hospitals that I realized proper filtration could be a game changer for my symptoms. I've had this air purifier for about five months now and I would buy one for every room in my house if they were a little less expensive. My symptoms aren't nonexistent but they've definitely improved and that's all I could ask for! I included a picture to show just how much stuff it filters from the air. This particular filter that I've just replaced is completely coated with a thick layer of dust bunnies (and goodness knows what else) after only a few months of use. My symptoms make total sense now that I see how much stuff gets left behind when cleaning." — Amy

    Price: $84.99

    8. An Alen air purifier so cute, you'll want to have it prominently displayed. It even offers the option to adjust the strength for your personal needs.,

    Promising review: "I have tried several air purifiers in my master bedroom (14 X 21 ft.). Others were either not powerful enough or too noisy for uninterrupted sleep - or both. This product hits the sweet spot in that it moves plenty of air quietly. It is a really well built and versatile unit. The filters are more expensive than cheaper purifiers, but are much more substantial than those of most competitors. You also have the option to choose between different specialty filters for your particular clean air needs. I suffer from allergies and asthma and find I get a better night's sleep and wake up with far less congestion when I use a good air purifier with the standard filter. I am looking forward to many years of service from this quality product." —David L.

    Price: $323.26 (available in three levels and seven colors)

    9. A RenPho air purifier that has a four-stage filtration process for an extra clean treatment. And the energy-saving setting can be a great option for long-term use.

    Promising review: "I use this purifier in a large master bedroom and connected office space. Since I work from home I spend the majority of my time in these two spaces with two large dogs. Depending on how many back-to-back conference calls I have on any given day, I occasionally smoke in the office. This purifier, placed in the master bedroom, keeps the air in both rooms fresh and crisp. I replaced the filter that came with the unit with the filter for smoke and pet odor. I keep the purifier set on automatic during the day and when it kicks into high gear, it is loud, but not loud enough to be heard by others when I am on a conference call. I change it to the sleep mode setting at night and it has yet to disturb my sleep. I am extremely happy with it and highly recommend it!" — Kelly F.

    Price: $139.99 (available in two colors)

    10. A Levoit air filter that has a night-light which gives you options for the light levels. Speaking of lights, there is even a reminder light when it comes time to change the filter.

    Promising review: "I foster kittens for a rescue, and no matter how often I clean the boxes, two or three times daily, and general cleaning, I still have an odor in the room. I got this product out of desperation. It was a good size and weight for kitties bouncing around. I am truly shocked and enormously happy with how it works! My husband was at wits' end with his sensitive nose. He goes in there now and is astonished, no smell. We are getting another for the kitchen! The room is 10×10, and I use it one the 2 setting. I also enjoy the night-light. Very helpful without disturbing sick sleepy babies recovering from illness." —Victoria Mohagen

    Price: $89.99 (available in two colors)

    11. A Medify Air air purifier with a subtle design that can blend right into any room you put it in. The medical-grade filtration ain't too bad either.

    The air purifier

    Promising review: "A fantastic air purifier and super fast delivery! I purchased this item on Monday, and it was at my doorstep as promised by Wednesday. It only took about three minutes to take the unit out of the box and set it up. Even though it’s only been installed for a few days, I can already tell the difference in my home’s air quality. When I walk in from outside the air seems fresher and less stale, and even the pet smells are gone (I have two dogs). I first placed the air purifier in the kitchen when I was cooking, and it made the smell quickly disappear. Later that night, I brought it up to my bedroom and ran it there while I slept. I’m a light sleeper, and the ambient light from some of my other devices can be distracting, so I was a real fan of the ’night’ feature that turns off all the glowing blue lights. If someone is looking for an air purifier, that’s large enough to get the job done yet small and elegant enough to fit in anywhere, I would highly recommend the Medify MA-14 Medical Grade True HEPA Air Purifier!!" — Lily

    Price: $99

    12. A Veva air purifier with four replacement filters because you are going to need to replace those things eventually anyway. It works as a tower or can be attached to a countertop, depending on your needs.,

    Promising review: "Ok sooo I feel as if this is a good time to write a review, I haven’t even had this for two months yet and let me tell you it WORKS! I’m extremely allergic to my fiancé’s cat and have a bad dust/pollen allergy as well so this time of year is usually miserable for me! Since I’ve gotten this I’ve slept soooo much better and can breathe again! I think it says to change the HEPA filter every three months but I started to notice my throat getting scratchy and eyes itching again so I decided to check the filter... I literally almost threw up when I saw how absolutely disgusting this filter was! After NOT EVEN TWO MONTHS! I was in complete shock to see what I was breathing in before this!! Also I’m going to add that our cat is NOT allowed in our bedroom because of my allergies, and I’m literally constantly cleaning and dusting bc of my allergies and the fact that my baby is crawling around all day, so I usually dust, sweep and Swiffer every two to three hours. So I did not expect this to look the way it did at all!!" — Sarah Elizabeth

    Price: $89.99

    13. A Himox air purifier that is a bit smaller than others on this list, perfect for smaller rooms or offices. It even has the option to drip in a few drops of your favorite essential oils to really set the mood.

    Promising review: "I was recently diagnosed with MS in November 2020 RIGHT in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. My brother suggested that I get an air purifier to place in my office to combine with mask wearing, social distancing, and hand washing to try to avoid getting COVID-19. My only regret is that I did not discover and purchase thus air purifier SOONER! This is my THIRD unit that I have ordered! I ordered one for my office, one for my Senior parents, and this unit will be one that I keep at home! EXCELLENT CHOICE!" — Edu

    Price: $59.99

    14. A TaoTronics air purifier with an air quality monitor, because air quality can shift throughout the day. Or use the countdown timer to have the filter running whenever you are home.,

    Promising review: "This is a really great very quiet large room air purifier. I’ve used an AQI meter to check that it’s dropped from 700 to 500 after I bought this which is really nice to know. The form factor is kind of like an old iPod from the early 2000s but it is very very clean and very white. Think hospital white. I’ve had it now for about a month and I’ve left it on automatic almost the entire time. The only thing that I have to gripe about is I think it removes a little bit of humidity from the room. Just keep that in mind if you use it in your plants like I do as you can see in the video. It definitely helps a room of about 600 square feet which is what I have running. Again it’s super quiet I haven’t noticed it for the last month that I’ve had with running so I’m pretty happy all in all." — Ben Jonah

    Price: $159.99

    15. A Mooka air purifier with a conical design that lends it a futuristic look. That way you can enjoy clean air without messing with the look of your living room.

    Promising review: "This little air purifier packs a punch. It’s so compact and runs so quietly that you don’t even realize it’s there. The only way I can tell that it is on is by the lack of dust I can see in the air and on my furniture in my typically dusty living room. This time of year I usually get a sore throat but since I’ve been using the air purifier I haven’t had that scratchy-throat feeling. Very happy with my purchase." — Mark
