Coway AP-1512HH Mighty is an effective, efficient and affordable air purifier that is a finalist in the market. Coway Airmega 200M has a different look but offers the same great performance. In Auto mode, it reduces particles by 0.3 microns at 18.0% (ambient) and 26.4% (clean). In Silent mode, it reduces 0.3 micron particles by 6.5% (ambient) and 7.2% (clean).
In Dark plus Auto mode, with its primary PECO purification system turned off and its fan at the equivalent of a medium setting, it reduces them by 21.3% (ambient) and 18.0% (clean). Air purifiers are designed to filter out any unwanted particles in the air, such as dust, pollen and smoke. Some models even claim to protect against the coronavirus COVID-19 by filtering airborne particles that carry the virus. By filtering the air, air purifiers promote a healthier breathing environment, reducing allergy and asthma symptoms.
With charcoal filters, these appliances are also natural deodorants, making them ideal in the kitchen or bedroom. After testing 10 models, both in the laboratory and at home, we believe that the Blueair Blue Pure 211+ Auto is the ultimate air purifier, combining quality, efficiency and value in one elegant package. It surprised us with how effectively it cleaned the air in a room, without being annoying. If you buy on a budget and need an air purifier for a small space, then the BlueAir Blue Pure 411 Auto is unbeatable with its automatic mode, perfect for children's room or office. The Honeywell HPA300 is a bulky device that offers good value for money considering its impressive performance. It's a large oval air purifier with slats around it, which makes it look like it belongs in the office of a dystopian future.
It's also quite heavy, weighing 17 pounds, so this is the type of air purifier you won't want to move once you put it in. A truly powerful device, the HPA300 ranked second in the CADR test, behind the Blueair Blue Pure 211+ auto. The most expensive and heaviest air purifier we tested is also one of the best air purifiers - Blueair Health Protect 7470i. It can clean a room of contaminants efficiently, increasing its resistance relatively easily when needed. With two lights in the front, one representing gas pollutants and the other for larger particles, Blueair Health Protect 7470i has the clearest indicator of air quality we've seen on any of the devices. The Winix 5500-2 performed well, only below some of the others on our list.
It is the only device that uses the relatively unknown “Plasmawave” technology. The premise behind this is that it creates hydroxyls that easily bind to other molecules to neutralize air faster. In conclusion, after testing 10 models of air purifiers both in laboratory and at home settings, we believe that Blueair Blue Pure 211+ Auto is the ultimate air purifier for home use due to its quality, efficiency and value in one elegant package. The Honeywell HPA300 offers good value for money considering its impressive performance while Blueair Health Protect 7470i is an ideal purchase if you want to see the impact your air purifier is having in real time.
