Alen BreathSmart FLEX Pure Customizable Air Purifier
Pros: Excellent innovative design and many color options. Quiet.
Cons: Pricey. Filters are expensive. Turbo setting can be a bit noisy but you usually don’t need to use that setting.
The Alen BreathSmart is a well thought out beautifully designed powerful air purifier. It uses a 3-stage filtration process and includes an ionizer. I love that you can get it in so many colours and with wood finishes, and metallic finishes as well so it can seamlessly integrate into your room. It comes in 14 different panel colours. It employs a HEPA air filter and whats more amazing about this filter is that you can use different types of HEPA filters for different purposes. All four of the HEPA filters that are available for this unit work to remove dust and allergens. Some of the filters are designed to remove pet dander and more and you can even get an antibacterial filter. When you purchase this air purifier you can specify to have the Antibacterial, Antibacterial SmartBundle, Basic, Basic SmartBundle, Household chemicals, and Pet and Diaper odor filters. With coverage up to 700 square feet this is a fantastic air purifier and deserving of the #1 Winner title. It also has a lifetime warranty!
Rabbit Air BioGS Ultra Quiet
Pros: Rapidly filters (a whole room twice in an hour). Ultra quiet. Efficient
Cons: Covers less area than the Alen BreathSmart at 550 Square feet, but you can upgrade to 625 Square feet model. Doesn’t filter smoke that well. Power button light remains lit and this can be bothersome at night. No colour choices.
The Rabbit Air BioGS is a powerhouse air purifier that uses a 4-stage process to clean the air. It has a washable and reusable pre-filter and uses HEPA filter traps that capture 99.97 of particles in the air. Its my pick for #2 Winner because it lacks the coverage area and customization options of the Alen BreathSmart. The Rabbit Air BioGS also uses an activate carbon filter to reduce and eliminate doors. On top of all of that it also has a negative ion generator, that provides an additional layer of filtration. If you don’t mind that this air purifier only comes in one colour this could be the purifier for you!
Blueair Blue Pure 211+ Air Purifier
Pros: Nice Design. Good performance and quiet.
Cons: Operating costs can be a bit high.
The BlueAir Blue Pure 211+ is a powerful high output air purifier designed to clean rooms of around 525 square feet. You can upgrade to the Blue Pure 121 for up to 700 square feet of coverage. This air purifier captures 99% of airborne pollutants including mold, dust, pet dander, pollen, and smoke. It operates quietly and is energy efficient. On the downside the filter replacements can get to be more expensive than other air purifiers, and that’s why its my #3 Winner. The Blue Pure lacks some of the advanced complex features found in similarly priced units like a timer but it is simple to operate and use. Though it uses its own activated carbon filter which isn’t exactly true HEPA technology its an extremely capable filtration system. If you want a true HEPA filter air purifier which can filter 99.97% of particles you’ll need to upgrade to the Rabbit Air BioGS our Best of the Best #2 winner or our #1 Winner. For most applications this is a simple and effective air purifier. A great buy!

It features a sleep mode to filter air nearly with no noise while you sleep. In auto mode it automatically changes its fan speed in response to sensing air borne contaminants. It comes with a respectable 2-year warranty. If you don’t mind that it doesn’t come in any other colour than white this could be the air purifier for you.
GermGuardian Elite 4-in-1 Purifier
Pros: True HEPA filter technology. UV-C Sanitizer. Comes in black and white. Quiet. Efficient. Great value for the money.
Cons: Only covers area of 200 square feet. No air quality sensor.
The GermGuardian Elite packs a serious punch against air borne contaminants. It uses a 4-stage filtration process and True HEPA technology. To top that off it has a UV-C light technology which takes out airborne viruses and bacteria! This is an excellent modern design and it does both in white and black. Its not designed for huge rooms but gets the job done in smaller rooms. It takes the #3 Winner spot because of its lack of coverage. Its a simple air purifier and lacks some advanced options like automatic sensor mode but for the price this is a fantastic air purifier. I highly recommend it!
