    I can’t believe I’m supposed to spray paint the Oransi. I mean yeah, it looks like an ugly air conditioning unit.

    Air purifyers are so expensive. I think I would rather go for plants that can purify the air instead. They’re cheaper and you’re 100% sure that the plants do their job because that’s what they do anyway! No need for expensive purifyers that you don’t even know if they really work. Why not just buy a plant and water it frequently and not only will you be helping the Earth by consuming less energy and less carbon footprint, you’re also saving a lot of money.

      Exactly, I would rather have plants at home. They’re cheaper and effective.

    Do I have to keep the air purifyers running all day?

    Thank you for this information. I’ve been planning to buy air purifyers for quite some time now but couldn’t figure out which one to buy. ?

    I don’t quite like how the BlueAir looks. It’s too big and looks a lot like a CPU. Definitely not good for homes that have kids and are just so curious what this rectangular thing is. If it looks like a vase or something expensive, kids won’t touch it. Compared to one that looks like a box that has something inside for curious cats. I also don’t feel like replacing the filters too often like that. I would like something that’s a little more low maintenance.

    Isn’t it better to just use the plants? Plants don’t even consume energy or need filter replacements.

    I like how the Light Air looks. I just don’t like the fact that it might cause darkening in walls. I’m honestly curious why?

  8. Candace Owens

    The Viktor one looks like a lamp. Love how it looks!

    The RabbitAir seems very convincing for me. Not bad at $85 too for the filter. I have pets at home and I also hate how they sometimes make the house smell like dogs and I can’t use aroma diffusers because it might irritate the dogs’ noses. I really have to rely on air purifiers in order to make the house smell better. It’s not like that’s the only job of the air purifiers anyway so it’s like hitting a lot of birds in one stone, which makes purchasing on really worth it.

    If you have kids at home that have allergies, air purifyers are really needed. You can always double the purpose of getting the plants as well.
