The Sexy Six; Keeping Your Home’s Air Clean

LightAir: Decidedly modern

LightAir Air Purifier

Priced reasonably at $260 to $350, the LightAir purifiers are completely silent and take a whole new approach to cleaning your air. This sleek tower purifier uses “static” and ionizes the airborne particles without the use of a filter. 99.4% effective, this machine is completely silent and is energy efficient. Its vertical design comes in silver or bronze, and three sizes: floor, table or hanging.

These units are made for small or medium-sized rooms, but be careful what it’s next to! Even though it’s void of filters it does require some cleaning here and there. With a good rinse of the inner capsule it should be good to go. If you forget about the cleaning a black film does form after some time behind the unit affecting walls, or furniture. If you can deal with the messy leftovers of this appliance at its great price, it is a deal for any room of the house. It does shine a blue light to let you know it’s working, which might not be so bedtime friendly. It is, however, by far the sexiest air cleaner with the most innovative design that we’ve ever seen.

Blue Air: Almost invisible against a white wall

BlueAir 503 Hepasilent Air Purifier

Everything has a top of line product right? Air purifiers are no different. With its full steel construction, this $660 air purifier is nothing short of luxury. Fit for large or small rooms, the BlueAir has undetectable three speeds that run silently. It has a worry-free ten year warranty that, with its five star rating, you might not even need.

It can handle up to five air changes per hour and works well with dust, pollen, dander, and smoke. Its thin white frame will fit any nook or cranny. For it’s only $80 for a pack of three replacement filters that are recyclable, and microbe resistant. The downside is they have to be replaced every six months to keep up with its 99.97% effectiveness. A favorite among consumers, this appliance is raved about for its longevity, looks, and fresh performance.

    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.
