Best Rated Home Air Purifiers (2021 Reviews and Guide)

Best Rated Home Air Purifiers (2021 Reviews and Guide) explores the features and pros and cons of 5 Home Air Purifiers; Hauea, Toppin, Levoit, Coway, and Honeywell. The price range is from under $25 to over $200. If you need a personal air purifier meant for a desk or end table or a larger room air purifier, all are covered here.

The purpose of an air purifier is to eliminate contaminants in the air, such as, but not limited to, dust, smoke, pollen, mold, and dander. Air purifiers come in various sizes and with the ability to cover a certain amount of square footage. The more extensive the coverage, the larger space it can purify.

For an easy side-by-side comparison of the purifiers discussed, there is a table at the bottom of this post. With all products, features can change, so before purchasing, be sure the qualities that attracted you to the product are still the same.

Review

For the budget-minded consumer, the HAUEA Air Purifier comes in under $25.00. Small in size, it won’t take up much space, but with that compact size, it is only effective for 108 square feet.

Essential Oil compatible but be sure not to put the oils directly on the plastic receptacle. Also, the plug is a USB plug, not a wall plug, so you will need to plug it into a device or purchase a power bank to plug into a wall socket.

The filter comes wrapped in plastic, so be sure to remove it before use.

The Hauea is quiet and comes with a one-button operation. The night light dims but will not turn off during operation.

If you are looking for a small personal space air purifier, this could be for you, but it will not purify an entire room.

Next up is the Toppin Air Purifier. The Toppin covers up to 160 sq. ft. for use as a personal space air purifier. As the previous model, this will not cover an entire room.

The Toppin Air Purifier has three fan settings, and the air goes through a 4 stage filtration process. You can use essential oils purchased separately to add aroma.

There is a filter replacement reminder, and the expected replacement time is every 3 – 6 months. Remember before running to remove the plastic bags from the filters.

Review

The LEVOIT Smart WiFi Air Purifier comes in at under $100, and though more expensive, you do get some added features not available on the other two models above.

First off, it comes with WiFI compatibility and can be voiced controlled through Alexa or Google Assistant. You are also able to schedule and control fan speed remotely through a smartphone.

Another feature it has is that you can turn the display off entirely. Those people who find it difficult to sleep with any light on will find this a useful feature.

The coverage is approximately 183 sf – which is more than the above two models.

It does run quietly at a lower speed, but as the speed increases, so does the noise.

There is an initial odor that was reported but does dissipate over time.

While the pre-filter can be cleaned every 2-4 weeks to maintain its effectiveness, the other two filters cannot be cleaned. It is recommended to replace the filters every 6-8 months. There is a filter change indicator.

Review

The Coway HEPA Air Purifier is an entire room purifier. It will cover 361 square feet and has a 4 stage filtration system.

There are reports of an initial odor, but the smell does go away over time.

The Conway Air Purifier communicates the air quality by a color-coded light ( clean, medium, and high polluted) adjusts the fan speed accordingly.

You can set the timer for 1, 4, or 8 hours. A feature we didn’t see in the models above is there is an Eco Mode. If the filter doesn’t detect pollution for 30 minutes, it will stop the fan and go into the Eco mode to save energy.

As seen in a few of the models above, the Coway also has a filter replacement indicator.

Wirecutter voted the Coway Hepa Air Purifier the Best Air Purifier of 2015-2021, and it ranked 1st place at the TopTenReviews.

Review

Honeywell is a well-known brand for many of its products, and the Honeywell HEPA Large Room Air Purifier is just one of them. Though the highest-end air purifier reviewed here, Honeywell hasn’t disappointed with this product finding for many; the price is well worth the features and ratings.

This purifier coverage is 465 square feet enough for a large-sized room.

A two-level filtration system with three cleaning levels plus the extra turbo clean contributes to filtering and circulating the air in the room up to 5 times an hour.

The timer allows for auto shut off after 2, 4, and 8 hours.

There are indicator lights for both filters to remind you to change the filters.

Honeywell does recommend for best performance, use only Genuine Honeywell air purifier filters. Compatible air purifier filter replacements are not guaranteed to offer the same performance or efficiency.

Honeywell backs this purifier with a five-year warranty.
