The claimed goals of a purifier are always many: Purify your interior. Remove fine particles, or both pollens, pets allergens. But also clean your house of volatile organic compounds that are gases and odors.

We made a selection of well known high-end products and brands to evaluate properly each purifier and their critical meaningful features.

All information shared have been gathered from the official websites of each brand, when a component was not available we skipped it.

What are the key criteria to compare Air purifier ? First of all theclean air delivery rate (CADR ou Clean Air Delivery Rate) which is a major feature of the quality level, it defines the maximum size of the room that an air purifier can sanitize.

Then the filter type used in the air purifier, is this a true HEPA filter, what kind of fine particles it can trap and what are the complementary filters?

All models of purifier must have several filters to guarantee a good filtration quality, not only on fine particles but also on volatile organic compounds such as gases and odors.

Ideally a anti-microbial pre-filter, a hepa filter, an activated carbon filter.

Is there also other devices included, complementary mechanism that increase the efficiency of purifiers ?

Finally, what is the ease of use, what has been done to make the use of the air purifier and the whole user experience as user-friendly as possible. Are the filters easy to replace? Is the unit quiet enough to purify your room without becoming a nuisance?

Does your product have a night mode to continue filtering the pollution of your room without disturbing you?

There is as well the purchasing cost to assess the value for money and the replacement filter cost too in order to make sure that the total cost of using the air purifier is visible.

You will find in this page all the technical advice on your device. But check well on customer reviews, beyond the design of appliances check what test is performed on each purifier before making your choice. Also make sure that the necessary functions are available on the system and that its level of quality is good enough, so that its primary function, eliminate pollutants, fine particles and allergens is fulfilled.

Chaque paragraphe décrit pour l'appareil les caractéristiques principales, les pièces auxquelles ils faut être attentif pour tout modèle de purificateur d'air.

Filtre : for air purifiers, a true HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) is the gold standard. 

True HEPA filters are recommended by organizations like the EPA, the American Lung Association, and the American Academy of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology.

These filters force air through a sticky membrane and can capture up to 99 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns. 

Les filtres HEPA sont hautement recommandés dans les purificateurs d'air, ce sont les filtres les plus performants pour filtrer et bloquer les particules très fines comme les pollens, allergènes d'animaux de compagnie, spores de moisissures, bactéries et particules fines en général. Le niveau de filtration de ces filtres est si fin que ces filtres sont capables de retenir aussi les plus gros des virus comme le H1N1 et le coronavirus.

There are several levels of HEPA filters according to their level of efficiency in the filtration of fine particles such as PM 2.5. A hepa filter will have a price linked to its level of filtration as well as its capacity to eliminate pollution in a greater or lesser room, therefore its own dimension.

The quality level of the HEPA filter is an excellent indicator of the device's quality, Philips, Rowenta, Dyson do not all communicate on the filtration level.

Activated carbon or charcoal filters : they absorb gases and odors

Treated with oxygen which opens up millions of small pores it will absorb Volatile organic compound (VOCs) such as gases, chemical fumes, odors.

370 grams of activated carbon will have an effective surface of 243 000 m²

Using activated carbon is a major complementary compound for the efficiency of filtration systems, against pollution, gases and of course odors in a room and the house.

It is the filter that will absorb pollution related to chemicals such as formaldehyde, ethers, solvents.

Beyond odors, this filter will protect you from this type of pollution that has a direct effect on health.

Your device quality will also depend on the volume of activated carbon into the filter

Un purificateur d'air doit nécessairement disposer d'un filtre à charbon actif et, son efficacité dans votre pièce de maison ou de bureau est directement liée à son volume.

Ease of use. 

Plug and play  delivery: when you receive your purifier, open up the box, plug the electrical wire an press start, that's it.

Neither Philips nor Rowenta nor Dyson offer this ease of use

Sound level: it is important to ensure that in normal running mode the sound level of the air purifier won't disturb you. Beware, decibels evolve on a logarithmic scale, which means that 3 db more correspond to multiplying the noise by two.

Your device should be as quiet as possible during operation, otherwise it will become a nuisance. All purifiers are equipped with several operating speeds. Ideally at low speed or during the night mode it should not exceed 18/20 decibels.

Automatic mode with sensors running the air purifier on auto mode. 

Night mode: dim the brightness, turns off the fine particle detector to keep the air purifier at its minimum speed and at the lowest sound level. Very important if the purifier is installed in a bedroom.

Child lock: prevent the possibility for the kids to change the settings.

Easy filters' replacement. Is this a simple operation without risk of releasing dust and other pollutants into your room
