What's the Best Air Purifier for First-Time Buyers?

The search for the best air purifier can be a daunting task, especially for first-time buyers. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. To help you make an informed decision, we've put together a guide to the best air purifiers for first-time buyers.The Molekule Air is a great option for first-time buyers. In our tests, it performed well in Auto mode, reducing particles by 0.3 microns at 18.0% (ambient) and 26.4% (clean).

In Silent mode, it reduced 0.3 micron particles by 6.5% (ambient) and 7.2% (clean). And in Dark plus Auto mode, with its primary PECO purification system turned off and its fan at the equivalent of a medium setting, it reduced them by 21.3% (ambient) and 18.0% (clean). The Good Housekeeping Seal Holder, Levoit air purifier is another great option for first-time buyers. It features a three-stage filtration system that includes a true HEPA filter to capture even the smallest airborne contaminants in rooms up to approximately 400 square feet.

A built-in precision laser sensor accurately monitors particles in the room and automatically adjusts fan speeds as needed. The purifier is also incredibly quiet, working at only 24 dB, making it ideal for bedrooms. Plus, it has intelligent capabilities, including the Levoit app, which allows you to monitor air quality in real time, view filter life, and set schedules. The Coway 1512 is another great option for first-time buyers. It has a coverage area of 360 m2 and a CADR of 312 CFM.

This suction level can generate noise in the range of 20-54 dB. It uses a HEPA filter with an activated carbon layer that is easy to replace as needed. The Levoit 400S performed best in our home tests, capturing at least 99.5% and up to 100% of particles during testing. The Coway-AP-1512HH air cleaner also benefits from a built-in particle sensor that shows a blue light when the air is clean, purple to indicate pollution and red for high pollution. It also has sensors that can adjust fan speed to keep the air clean and an Eco Mode that turns off the air purifier when air pollution is low. Finally, the Blue Pure 221 is an excellent option for first-time buyers on a budget.

Despite its lack of Smart technology, it outperformed purifiers at almost double the price in our home tests. At a level 6 setting, we found that the purifier removed 98% of particles smaller than 0.3 microns, 72% of particles smaller than 2.5 microns, and 73% of particles smaller than 10 microns. When shopping for an air purifier as a first-time buyer, it's important to consider your needs and budget before making a purchase decision. We hope this guide has helped you narrow down your choices and find the best air purifier for your needs.
