AllerAir AirMedic Series: Healing Relief

Generally speaking, all purifiers are a valuable adjunct to the treatment of many respiratory conditions (especially if they are good). But AllerAir has decided to highlight this nice feature of air cleaners and created a special series – the AllerAir AirMedic.

Destined to be one of AllerAir’s best selling products, the new AirMedic is probably the most efficient model that the company has up to this time for areas up to 1500 square feet. This cylinder-shaped device with a 360° air intake system maintains a consistent flow of virtually pure air by removing all particles, gases, chemicals and odors.

AllerAir AirMedic air purifiers are easy to recognize – unlike other AllerAir units, they feature all-metal perforated casing, probably allowing the air to be sucked more easily by the filter.

Speaking of filters, the filtration system of AllerAir AirMedic purifiers does not drastically differ from the one used in AllerAir’s state-of-the-art units. It uses three levels of defense – first, the pro-dense pre-filter captures large particles and does not let them clog the HEPA. Almost all smaller-sized particles (down to 0.01 microns) are then captured by a medical grade HEPA which meets strict standards, such as the European Norm 1822.


AllerAir AirMedic units also feature neat technology around trapping odors is pretty neat. Eighteen pounds of carbon suck the smellies inside and trap them.

There are three filters in this series – the AllerAir AirMedic Exec Air Purifier, the AllerAir AirMedic D Purifier with Vocarb Carbon, AllerAir Air Medic + Vocarb UV Air Purifier. The AllerAir AirMedic Exec Air Purifier is the basic unit in this series (though it has all the features stated above).

As for the other two medical air purifiers in this series – the AllerAir AirMedic D Purifier with Vocarb Carbon and the AllerAir Air Medic + Vocarb UV Air Purifier – they come with 18 lbs of specially blended vocarb carbon, which targets and neutralizes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

And if you want some additional protection that will help you kill airborne germs, the AllerAir Air Medic + Vocarb UV Air Purifier also comes with an ultraviolet germicidal light.

If you have some medical condition which you would like to keep under control using an air purifier, one of AllerAir’s AirMedic units in the house is more than sufficient for keeping the disease under check or preventing it.

Sadly this purifier has been discontinued and no longer available for sale.

AllerAir Exec Air Purifiers: Designed to Deliver

According to ancient Romans, a name is not just a name but also a symbol, and, if so, AllerAir named their Exec purifiers just right – they are certainly able to execute and deliver.

There are a few of these babies in each series, and they certainly do not lack power – each of them is able to clean the area in a 1500 square feet area, using a four-stage filtration system. The AllerAir Exec air purifiers eliminate the three factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality – a pre-filter that traps dust, an activated carbon filter adsorbs chemicals and odors and a medical grade HEPA filter removes 99.97% of all airborne particles in the air, including particles as small as 0.3 microns.

Some of the AllerAir Exec Air purifiers, like the AllerAir 4000 Exec UV Air Purifier and the AllerAir 6000 Exec UV Air Purifier also have a germicidal UV light that kills bacteria and viruses for extra protection.


Talking about size, the 4000 Series Exec models are the smallest in this range. The units from the 5000 and 6000 Series are a little larger, respectively. This is probably due to the carbon filter – it is smaller in the older series.  For instance, the AllerAir 4000 Exec UV air purifier has a 10-lb MAC-B filter, while the carbon filter in the AllerAir 6000 weighs 24 lb.

It is only logical – the more carbon, the more micropores available, and the more effectively the filter traps chemicals and odors. The carbon filters from the 5000 Series are somewhere in between – they weigh 18 lb, like the one featured in the AllerAir 5000 Exec, but it is still a lot, compared to other those little carbon filters in most units that are practically worthless.

But the real king of the filters is the HEPA filter which removes 99.97% of 0.3 micron paticles from the air flowing through it and 100% the particles larger than 1 micron, capturing all mold spores and almost all bacteria.

If you approach everything (including the air purification system in your house) seriously, you will find the AllerAir Exec air purifiers to your taste because they are too effective to be simple home air purifiers and have an almost industrial feel to them.

AllerAir 5000 Series: Step Up in Design

The more you do something, the better you become at it. It is only logical that after launching the AllerAir 4000 series, AllerAir has progressed to a more advanced series – the AllerAir 5000 Series.

The purification system has remained basically the same – first, dust particles are captured by a pre-filter, then gases and odors are locked in by a mass activated carbon bed and mold, bacteria, and viruses are destroyed by two anti-microbial filters. And, finally, if there is anything left after that powerful attack, the powerful HEPA filter will complete the job.

What has been improved is the range of models and their designs – there are 19 models in seven colors – silver, copper, pewter, black, white, red and sandstone, in contrast to just the two colors and ten models available in the AllerAir 4000 series, meaning that you can color-coordinate your AllerAir 5000  air purifier with your interior design.


There are four larger units that can be affixed to HVAC units – the AllerAir 5000 AH Vocab, AllerAir 5000 D AH Vocab, AllerAir 5000 AH Exec, and AllerAir 5000 D AH Exec . They belong to the more expensive range of this series, since they are used mostly for businesses.

The other two unusually looking air purifiers in this series are the AllerAir 5000 W Exec and the AllerAir 5000 W Vocarb – they use a special source-capture attachment to remove the chemicals and odors directly at their source, if there is one in particular.

Overall, the price range in the AllerAir 5000 series varies from seven hundred for the AllerAir 5000 DS Exec to thirteen hundred for the AllerAir 5000 D MCS.

At least at first sight, there is no difference between them – both feature a carbon Filter, electrostatic Particle Filter, cotton pre-filter as well as a micro-HEPA filter and a UV Light as an additional option, but the more expensive one has been designed specifically for people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and allergies.

All AllerAir 5000 cover quite a large area – 1500 square feet, which means that, potentially, just one air cleaner would be enough for an apartment/house with two bedrooms and baths.

Overall, you can’t go wrong with the purifiers from the AllerAir 5000 series – they are powerful, efficient and reliable devices.

AllerAir 4000 Series Air Purifiers: High-End and Reliable

Though the AllerAir 4000 series air purifiers look like small garbage cans, they make a very effective weapon against airborne chemicals, gases, odors or mold spores. These units are a happy combination of size and power – the ten air cleaners from this series are more compact than the AllerAir 5000 series air purifiers but much more powerful than the Allerair 3000 series air cleaners.

And because there are ten of them, there is an air purifier virtually for every need. The AllerAir 4000 Photocatalytic uses UV light with a special catalyst to destroy hazardous chemicals, volatile organic compounds and harsh odors. The other air purifier which also has an ultraviolet light for eliminating airborne bacteria, mold mycotoxins and other microorganisms is the AllerAir 4000 Exec UV. The UV lamp emits ultraviolet waves which destroy antigens and pathogens as they pass through them.

The AllerAir 4000 DX Vocarb, AllerAir 4000 D Vocarb and AllerAir 4000 DX Exec are especially good for absorbing harmful toxins since they features an extra deep bed carbon filter and a micro-HEPA.


The AllerAir 4000 Vocarb and the AllerAir 4000 Exec are good for getting rid of volatile organic compounds, odors and pollutants in a smaller space and have a pre-filter and a medical grade HEPA.

There are also two air purifiers for smaller homes or businesses which are compatible with all HVAC units and also feature an extra deep bed filter and a micro-HEPA filter –  the AllerAir 4000 D AH Vocarb and the AllerAir 4000 D AH Exec.

All AllerAir 4000 series air purifiers have a four-stage HEPA filtration system – the pre-filter traps large dust particles, the mass activated carbon bed filter locks in gases and odors, the two antimicrobial filters eliminate bacteria, mold, and viruses, and, finally, the HEPA filter traps airborne particles.

If you wonder about maintenance, the AllerAir 4000 filters have a good life span. You will have to change the pre-filter every three months or so, and vacuuming it might help with extending this period. The carbon filter needs replacing every 1-3 years, and, depending on usage, the HEPA filter usually lasts 3-5 years.

The air purifiers from the AllerAir 4000 series are a good choice, if you want good value, quality and industrial strength.

Austin Air HealthMate HM 400: Powerful and Efficient

Cheap air purifiers often end up more expensive than the expensive ones, because you have to replace them (or filters) often. If you rather prefer expensive but solid things, the Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 is your kind of air purifier.

Even by the looks of it, you can tell that the Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 is much more powerful than your average air purifier.  It efficiently cleans up to 1500 square feet, which means that one unit would be enough to clean the air in an entire house (if it is not too big).

Plus, it is very well made. This thing is extremely sturdy and is made of heavy material. It weighs about 45 pounds, so it will not be picked up by your children without some effort, but the wheels on the bottom make it very easy to move around the house.

The Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 removes 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size in four stages – first, easily visible particles like dust, hair and pet dander are sucked into a prefilter, and medium-sized particles like molds, spores, pollen, even smaller ones like chemicals, gases and odors and harmful micro-organisms  (bacteria and viruses) are removed at next stages.


And while many of the cheaper units have multiple filters that have to be changed frequently, Austin Air not only claims that the HealthMate HM 400’s filter lasts for 5 years, but also provides a warranty on the filter. If you do the math, you will probably see that you could buy a new unit every five years instead of replacing the filter and still spend less when compared to many of the air purifiers with lower initial costs.

If you are worried about the sound, the Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 has three sound settings. On 1, the unit easily blends in with ambient noise. You won’t have to turn up the TV any louder and can talk normal. On 2, the TV has to be a little louder, but does not stand in the way of conversations. On 3, the unit is as noisy as an AC unit fan – quite noticeable. However, you will be able to sleep if the Austin Air will be running in your bedroom at Setting 1 and 2.

Overall, the Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 does a great job of cleaning the air and the expense is well worth it, as the quality of this product cannot be matched by less expensive purifiers.

Energy-Efficient Air Purifiers

If you want to make your home energy-efficient, trying to make your home more comfortable and become friendlier to the environment and looking for long- term financial rewards, you definitely need an energy-efficient air purifier. A power-saving air cleaner will ensure that dollars you invest in purifying the air are spent wisely.

We would like to present a few air purifiers that can save you tons of cash on your power bill.

Blueair 210B Energy-Star HEPASilent Air Purifier

This Blueair air purifier is just what the doctor ordered – it features a true HEPA filter that cleans the air at 99.97 percent at 0.1 -micron efficiency level. It will make sure that your allergies or asthma won’t get aggravated in a room as big as 168 square feet. And, what’s important, this air cleaner has extremely low energy consumption and uses from 20 to 50 watts, depending on the efficiency level. There is a nice bonus as well – you can use Blueair 210B Energy-Star HEPASilent Air Purifier as a night-light.


Rabbit Air MinusA2 SPA-780A

This air purifier a bit on the pricy side (about five hundred dollars), but it is worth it as it covers an area up to 815 square feet. Slim and stylish, this device cleans the air using the Signature HEPA filter, medium filter, permanent pre-filter, customized filter and washable Activated Carbon Filter in six stages. The Rabbit Air MinusA2 SPA-780A can be left freestanding or mounted to the wall, depending on your preferences. Despite its high efficiency, the device consumes eight watts at low speed and 58 watts at high speed.

Rabbit-Air-MinusA2-SPA-780ABlueair ECO10 Energy-Star HEPASilent Air Purifier

You will have to shell out almost nine hundred dollars for this technological wonder, but it has the best energy-efficiency characteristics – it consumes up to 95-percent less energy than other air purifiers. The unit removes particles down to 0,1 microns with efficiency 99 97% in size, and includes three HEPASilent filters. The Blueair ECO10 Energy-Star HEPASilent Air Purifier is efficient in an area up to 300 square feet and has a limited lifetime warranty.


Smoke-Eliminating Air Cleaners

Air purifiers are normally associated with allergies, but this is not the only situation when it is a good idea to get an air cleaner. Air purifiers are also an excellent solution for those people who prefer smoking indoors. Here are a few air purifiers that will help to get rid of secondhand smoke.

Blueair 203 SMOKESTOP Air Purifier

This high-quality air purifier is not only effective, but attractive in a high-tech sort of way. It will capture 99.97% of particles down to 0,1 micron size and eliminate smoke and other odors, dust mites, pollen, pet dander and mold spores. The filter cleans the air in three stages in a room up to 175 square feet – the first one entraps pollen and dust and the other two capture bacteria and viruses.

The only downside to this air cleaner is that you will have to buy the replacement filter twice a year. The removal of tobacco smoke will be more effective if use this purifier together with the200 Series SmokeStop HEPA replacement filter.Blueair 203 SMOKESTOP Air PurifierBlueair 403 SMOKESTOP Air Purifier

This is an improvement over the previous model. And like every improvement, it is more expensive ($200, to be precise).

However, the price is understandable – Blueair 403 SMOKESTOP is technically more advanced and can make the air clean in a larger area of up to 365 square feet. The air filter with carbon particles provides flawless odor and gas filtration and removes 99.97% of 0,1 micron-sized particles.Blueair 403 SMOKESTOP Air PurifierAllerair 5000 DS Exec Air Purifier – Tobacco Smoke Effects Neutralization

This is the king of smoke-eliminating air purifiers. It is too bad that the price (around $800) also reflects its superiority. This device is excellent at trapping cigarette smoke – the pre-filter captures tar and large particles, the micro-filter grabs smaller particles, the carbon filter absorbs gases, odors and chemicals and the HEPA filter finishes the cleaning job. The purifier is designed to clean a 1500 square room.

The Allerair 5000 DS Exec Air Purifier is extremely quiet but very good at removing tobacco smoke – you will hardly find anything better on the market.

What is The Best Air Purifier for the Bedroom?

Bedroom is a place where people spend one third of their life. It is where we sleep and breathe for approximately 8 hours a day. So the air inside our bedroom is very important.


According to United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the bedroom must be cleaned regularly for it contains animal dander, pollens, dust mites, and other agents that cause allergy. EPA prefers the use of vacuum cleaner that has a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter to vacuum the carpet and furniture covered with fabric to lessen the buildup of dust. source

The bedroom can also contain molds, spores, hair, dust, odors, gases, and chemicals. The standard mattress can release gases from chemicals used in the process of manufacturing the product. Air fresheners can also contribute to the bedroom pollution instead of reducing it.

air freshener

The National Sleep Foundation conducted a poll and found that Americans love their bedrooms. Americans where asked, what bedroom elements help you sleep? Below is the poll result that shows the percentage of Americans who claim that these bedroom elements are significant to having a good sleep at night.

  • A comfortable mattress (92%)
  • Comfortable pillows (91%)
  • Comfortable feel of sheets and bedding (85%)
  • Cool room temperature (79%)
  • Fresh air, free of allergens (75%)
  • Dark room (73%)
  • Quiet room (72%)


The result of the poll above greatly shows that 75% percent of Americans claim that to have a good night sleep, the bedroom air must be fresh and free of allergens.

After the survey, the National Sleep Foundation gave a tip that people should make their bedrooms a sleeping sanctuary. The basic building blocks in making the best environment for sleeping are cool temperature, quietness, fresh air and comfort.

Since the bedroom air is one of the factors that contribute to having a good night sleep and health, the National Sleep Foundation is happy to introduce the first product for bedroom to carry the name of National Sleep Foundation.

The product is an air purifier called The National Sleep Foundation Bedroom Machine. It is designed and developed by Austin Air Systems. This air purifier was chosen for use in a new study of Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health on bedroom air quality and asthma. It is also used by the University of Buffalo in a number of studies on asthma and environment. source

The National Sleep Foundation Bedroom Machines

The National Sleep Foundation Bedroom Machine is equipped with the most advanced filtering system that Austin Air Systems has ever designed. The filtering system of this air purifier is built and designed to meet the Johns Hopkins University Medical School’s requirements to capture submicron particles and gasses.

It combines filter technologies that are proven to provide effective and safe answer to improved sleep. The air passes through 15 lb of activated carbon at a rate of 250 cubic feet per minute. The air also passes through the High Efficiency Gas Adsorber (HEGA) Carbon Cloth and True Medical Grade High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter at a rate of 60 square feet per minute.

The National Sleep Foundation Bedroom Machine can remove a wide range of pollutants like chemicals, noxious gases and sub-micron particles. One of the great features of this machine is its ability to draw air into all sides called the 360 degrees progressive filtering system, and passes it through its 5-stage filter.

5 Filter Stages:

The 5-stages filter can remove the following:

The National Sleep Foundation Bedroom Machine is definitely the BEST air purifier for the bedroom, because it is the only air purifier for bedroom endorsed by the National Sleep Foundation.

3 Best Air Purifiers for Pets in 2020

best air purifier for pets

Waking up at night with your eyes streaming and a scratchy chest is not something that any of us want to go through.

Sure we could remove our pet from the home but for many of us, our pets are like family members.

The truth is that in 2020, there is no reason we can’t use technology to allow us to enjoy our furry friends but not end up breathing in the dander, odors, and hair that these guys shed on a daily basis.

We based our selection of air purifiers for pets based on those that can deal with a large number of odors and dander that need to be removed from your home air.

As with other home gadgets that are aimed at pets (think Dyson Pet vacuum) – I would generally avoid the very cheapest purifiers on the market – they will just become clogged very quickly and are unlikely to provide the end goal of clean air in your home.

But if budget is a concern, don’t be put off as many of the cheaper options in this list are able to work in small rooms. So whilst you might not be able to clean the air in your entire home, you will still be able to keep your bedroom or home office safe from dander and other allergy-causing particles.

All air purifiers recommended have been thoroughly researched including using algorithms to identify review manipulation so you don’t end up with a machine that doesn’t live up to expectations – be sure to contact me if you have any issues with any of the air purifiers on the list.

  1. Best Choice overall – Austin Air Pet Machine B4101B1

Austin Air B410B1 Pet Machine Air Purifier, Black

We are a big fan of Austin who has been making air purifiers for the last 30 years and has been manufactured in the United States. This is especially important at this time with Covid-19 and the problems of the supply chain of getting air purifiers from China and Asia.

Austin Air purifiers have been used during American disasters including Hurrican Katrina and 9-11 and they work with a number of American hospitals.

This pet machine uses true HEPA filters (which are replaced every 5 years) and has 780 cubic inches of carbon and zeolite filter that will remove odors and gases (which is a major issue with Pets.)

The Pet Machine is great for keeping you safe and your pet safe (for those who own exotic animals)  as it removes many particles and allergens that are also dangerous to animals.

It covers 1500sq.ft but do take into account that every home layout is different so I generally recommend working under the maximum given by the manufacturers.

Plenty of users have found that the Austin Pet Machine has enabled them to live allergy free even with Cats that previously have been causing major issues and allowed them to keep their cats.

The downside is that it’s not the cheapest on the market but if you have a major issue with pets then this is the air purifier for the job.

Another issue to be aware of is that it does run fairly loud which might upset some dogs so be sure to get from Amazon so you can easily send it back if you have any issues.

Austin Air B410B1 Pet Machine Air Purifier, Black
  • Designed specifically for people with pets looking to remove unwanted odors, pet dander and animal allergens from the home
  • Also ideal for bird and exotic pet owners wanting to remove allergens and particles that can be harmful to their pets
  • True medical grade HEPA filter removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns; proprietary blend of over 780 cubic inches of impregnated carbon and zeolite filtration removes chemicals, gases and odors like ammoniums
  • 3 speed settings for fan; 360 degree intake system draws air into all sides of unit, passing air through a 4 stage filter
  • Reduces pet odors and allergens, night time allergies, asthma attacks, snoring, and helps you sleep better; eases coughing, wheezing, sneezing; reduces dry mouth, runny nose; strengthens the immune system

2. Budget choice – Winx 5300-2

Winix 5300-2 Air Purifier with True HEPA, PlasmaWave and Odor Reducing Carbon Filter,Gray

This air purifier is usually found for around $120-150 and is the best in class for this budget level.

As with the Austin air purifier, this comes with True-HEPA, a carbon filter and PlasmaWave technology (a fancy way to say it uses bipolar ionization which is very safe unlike many of the old units that created large amounts of ozone.)

As I mentioned in the intro, don’t expect this budget air purifier to clean your entire home but you can use it in rooms up to 400sq ft and there is no reason you can’t buy more to be used in rooms in future.

Many people have used the Winx 5300 for pet dander and pet odor and found that allergies symptoms were reduced significantly after using the device.

The downside of this air purifier is that it can only be used in one room so you will need to move it around the house if you want to clean new spaces.

The filter does need to be replaced every 12 months at a cost of $40 so that is a cost to keep in mind. There is also electrify cost to consider which amounts to $73 a year at level 4 24 hours per day.

But if you can’t quite push for the Austin Air Pet machine then the Winx 5300-2 is a perfect air purifier for remove pet dander and odors from a room.

Winix 5300-2 Air Purifier with True HEPA, PlasmaWave and Odor Reducing Carbon Filter,Gray
  • True-HEPA filter captures 99.97% of airborne pollutants; dust mites, pet dander, pollen and other allergens as small as 0.3 microns.

  • PlasmaWave acts as a permanent filter to safely break down odor, allergens, chemical vapors and other pollutants - with no harmful ozone
  • Delivered air flow :236 CFM, decibels : 27.8 . Smart Sensor gauges the air and our Auto Mode adjusts the fan to filter the air as needed; with a sleep mode for silent night-time operation
  • No remote control . CADR rated for 360 sq. ft. Suitable for medium and large rooms; kids bedrooms, baby nurseries and offices

3. Money No Object – Molekule Air Purifier

Molekule Air Large Room Air Purifier with PECO Technology for Allergens, Pollutants, Viruses, Bacteria, and Mold, Silver

If $800+ doesn’t make you spit out your coffee then it might be worth checking out the Molekule air purifier.

It has the looks with a sleek silver design that will fit well into many homes and unlike the other options it’s smart so it comes with its own Android and Apple app.

It can handle decent size rooms with the ability to clean replace the air in a 600 sq.ft room every hour.

Unlike standard air purifiers that use HEPA and Carbon, this air purifier from Molekule uses it’s own patented PECO system. Whilst standard HEPA and Carbon are great for removing particles and odor from the air – PECO has the ability to kill and destroy viruses, bacteria, and VOCs using its patented oxidization process.

There are even studies that look at how this PECO technology works with people with Asthma symptoms – (many suffered showed reduced symptoms after 4 weeks)

Many pet owners have found that the Molekule air purifier is great at removing pet dander and odors even with multiple animals.

The Molekule air purifier is certainly a great purifier for those with pets but it will be up to you decide if it’s worth the significant extra $$ compared to something like the Austin Air pet machine which achieves similar results for a lot less budget.

Molekule Air Large Room Air Purifier with PECO Technology for Allergens, Pollutants, Viruses, Bacteria, and Mold, Silver

Why should be you be bothered about pet hair and dander?

In the US, nearly 20% of the population has an allergic reaction to cats and dogs and as pets get older the causes of these allergies – pet dander actually get worse as the animals shed more.

Most people know that you need to keep on top of cat and dog hair when you suffer allergies but many of the big allergy-causing particles are too small to be seen by the naked eye.

This is where air purifiers can help with the use of HEPA, Carbon and even PECO to remove these particles from the air so your body doesn’t have the allergic reaction. This is why air purifiers are also great for allergies as they can turn your home into a safe-haven from allergy-causing particles like tree pollen.

A review of the Airpura C600 purifier review

When you consider the Airpura C600 features you find that it has a large 3 inch activated carbon bed. This is extremely effective in being able to receive every possible kind of gaseous chemical contaminant and VOCs. The carbon filter is specifically made extra deep in order to ensure that there is an enhanced purification of the air. This also takes a further contact time to bring about a far longer increase in the absorption of the carbon media.


A Hepa grade post filter is able to remove all the possible airborne particles.

The Airpura C600 has a powerful speed fan, with a power of 560 cubic foot per minute. This has the specific objective of being able to reduce the noise and movement. There are felt gaskets to prevent the contamination. The other competitors in the market go on to use rubber seals that cut off gas VOCs. This series is the one that comes with the highest air processing rates in the field. At the same time one really needn’t worry about the noise level from the fan. The noise level emitted by the Airpura C600 is far less than its competitors.
