In that page you will finds all the technical advices. However have also a look to the 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 so that its primary function, eliminate pollutants, fine particles and allergens are fulfilled.

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. 

HEPA filters are highly recommended in air purifiers because they are best at trapping small particles such as pollens, dander from pets, mold spores, bacteria, and very small particles in general.

There is several grades of HEPA filters according the ability to catch a high percentage of fine particles such as PM 2.5.

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.


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.
