If you’ve been trying to find out what some of the best air purifiers are you can buy for your home or office, you’ve undoubtedly come across a variety of websites and blogs that claim to have all of the right answers.
But, how can you be 100% sure which sites actually have your best interest at heart and are not just trying to sell you the most expensive products?
At Home Air Quality Guides, our goal is to help you find the best air purifier for your specific needs.
While we definitely recommend that you check out our website to find out what is the best air purifier for a particular need or situation, we’re also not ones to shy away from being blatantly honest and respectful of other companies that offer a similar service.
We believe that it’s only fair that you’re as well informed as possible.
Therefore, we’ve put together a list of the top websites and blogs that you’ll come across when looking for air purifier ratings and reviews. Along side each is a short description with our opinion of what you can expect from each resource.
This company serves consumers through unbiased product testing and ratings, research, journalism, public education, and advocacy. However, this information does come at a cost on a subscription basis. In regards to air purifiers, the free information that this website provides is a short guide that explains about the differences between a room air purifier and whole home unit, things you should consider before purchasing, and the variety of features you can choose from. The bottom-line is that the information is brief and doesn’t provide too much value for someone who’s ready to make a buying decision.
The Sweet Home
This site is known for offering extremely in-depth articles that lead to a final recommendation on what they consider to be the #1 best product in a given category. In regards to air purifiers, you’ll find more than 13,000 words that span across 40+ pages which outline exactly how they tested every aspect of each product. If you’re really into the fine details of things, we highly recommend this site, however, if you want to save yourself a days worth of reading and just want the answer to the best reviewed air cleaner, it’s the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier. You can see our shorter review of this device here.
Similar to the Sweet Home, this lifestyle blog doesn’t focus on just one topic, but rather offers articles and stories on all things related to the home.
In regards to air cleaners, this site provides recommendations for products that fit into three price levels: low, medium and high.
We can affirm that every device listed on this blog is also one that we would recommend to consumers. A good amount of consumer information is available on this site about air cleaners as well as other things you may want for an apartment.
So, if you want just a quick list of the best air purifiers within a certain price range, this site is a good one to visit.
Here’s another broad style website that provides information on many different topics related to technology and science. One section is dedicated to educating consumers on air purifiers. However, even though the site may seem professional and trustworthy (and it may actually be), the information is very brief and comes across as too salesy. Similar to Apartment Therapy listed above, there’s only a short introduction that explains what a HEPA filter is and then it launches into recommending three products. It leaves out any mention of the other four popular types of air purification technology (ionic, carbon, ultra violet lighting and ozone generation) and lacks an honest comparison. We suggest that you skip this site when doing your research on finding the best air purifiers.
VIP For Air
Unlike some other sites we mentioned above, this one is actually a dedicated site for air purifier information. It offers a lot of educational information on the topic and even provides a comparison table of their top 10 best choices. If you’re looking for a thorough source, this is a good choice. However, the content can be a little overwhelming due to the fact that it has a lot of links placed throughout the review content that leads to other areas of the site. After clicking on one or two links to learn more about a product, you may feel like you’ve entered into a maze and can’t get back to where you started. Our only other complaint is that the comparison chart doesn’t provide enough of the right information in order to make a the best comparison between each of the top 10 products. If you take a look you’ll see what we mean.
Allergy Buyers Club
If you have severe allergies, then this is a great site to check out. They offer information on all types of products to help with allergy symptoms, including air purifiers, bedding, dehumidifiers, steam cleaners, vacuum cleaners and more. If you’re looking for a site that lists and sells all of the air cleaning devices ever manufactured, then this is it. The only drawback that we see with this site is that the descriptions for each air purifier are taken directly from the manufacturer. So, there’s not a lot of honest opinion offered by the website itself, but that’s made up for by the numerous customer reviews for each product. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on this site doing your own research and comparisons in order to make a final decision.
If you’re interested in seeing what our site has to offer in regards to finding the best air purifier for your needs, check out our dedicated section on “How Air Purifiers Can Help.” It’s divided up into the key areas in which you would want to use an air purifier and offers specific recommendations on which device will help with a particular need.
