The Sexy Six; Keeping Your Home’s Air Clean
Reviews of the six sexiest air cleaners we could find, any why you need them, pronto!
Oransi V Hepa Max Filter
Priced at $480, this Oransi air purifier is great for larger single rooms such as the living room or bedroom. It does look more like an appliance, but it’s rated one of the quietest purifiers on the market. Its Hepa filters are 98% effective against all airborne particulates and contain activated carbon for removing orders effectively.
The four individual filters needed are priced at $82 for the pack and have a twelve month lifespan. This appliance is quiet, efficient and the only downside seems to be its looks. The Oransi’s nighttime function shuts down all lights, making it sleep friendly for those who need total dark. Keep DIY in mind with this one, its shape may be not so pretty but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful with a little touch of spray-paint!
Fellowes DX95 air cleaner
Priced at $340, the Fellowes air purifier is easier on the wallet than most others, while keeping up with the pricier machines. It traps up to 99.7% of all airborne particles, including pollen, house dust mite allergen, and cat and dog allergens. For those who have other things on the brain, the filter change indicator lets you know when to change the $30 antimicrobial HEPA filter, eliminating the guesswork (which should be about once per year). The filters are protected from developing mildew, fungi, and bacteria with an antimicrobial treatment.
On high speed, the vent (at the top of the machine), can double as a fan and can be easily directed to blow anywhere from sideways to straight up. Suitable for a large living room or medium sized office space, the unique AeraSmart Sensor monitors your air quality for you and auto-adjusts the fan speed to keep up with your air (or you can choose to keep it on high).
The only downside is that it’s not the prettiest machine in the bunch and could be easily described as…clunky. But, in our minds, that’s made up for by the fact that the filters are less than $30.
