An In-Depth Review
of Popular Air Purifiers -
|There are at
least fifteen major brands promoting air purifiers. Below you
will find condensed air purifier reviews for four of the most
Oreck Air Purifiers
The Oreck Super Air 8 Air Purifier uses four different technologies to clear
your air. The pre-filter catches large particles such as dust
and pollen. The charcoal filter captures some of the smaller
particles and chemicals that irritate the eyes and throat. Then
the electrostatic precipitator electronically charges small
particles with a negative ion, and immediately a collector plate
magnetically grips the charged particles. Simultaneously, the
Oreck air purifier generates negative ions and sends them out
into the air, causing pollutants to drop right out of the air.
Ionic Breeze Air Purifiers
The Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP uses a combination of electrostatic
precipitator, negative ion generator, and an ultraviolet light.
The ultraviolet light is a new improvement to the unit, which
works to kill bacteria and viruses. The Ionic Breeze air
purifier generates high amounts of harmful ozone, so make sure
you place the unit at least two to ten feet away from your bed
Hunter Air Purifiers
The Hunter Quietflo 3400 and the Hunter HEPAtech 30375 both use a carbon
prefilter to capture large air pollutants. They both come
equipped with a “Change Filter” light to minimize guesswork.
Either can be operated manually or set on a timer. The 30375
includes a built-in ion generator.
Austin Air Purifiers
Austin Air offers five types of air purifiers. They come in two sizes: 15
pounds (the 400 series) and 6 pounds (the 200 series). They use
a carbon and zeolite prefilter in combination with a HEPA
filter. It is a sturdy-looking machine made of metal, for those
who are sensitive to the smell of plastic.
