Other noteworthy Air Purifiers:
Austin Air Air Purifiers are extremely popular with our customers. They offer a no nonsense, no frills approach to air purification and put their money into what really counts; very good gas and odor filtration and above average particle filtration. They lost points for combining their gas and HEPA filters as these filters degrade at a different pace than each other. Like Airpura, Austin’s filters are difficult to change requiring a screwdriver and turning the machine upside down. But none the less, for consumers with serious allergy problems they are high up on our air purifier runners up list. The Austin Air Bedroom is a fairly quiet machine with better filtration than their prior models.

Winix air purifiers are well made with a pleasing space saving design, easy filter changes, some nice auto monitoring features, fairly quiet and are Energy Star compliant. Best of all, they offer above average performance in air filtration. These are well worth looking at since the price is a knockout for what is being offered.
