Seems like nowadays air purifier is a necessity, especially if you live in the city and/or dust-prone area, having an allergy, or perhaps little ones that unable to cope with current air level that’s just not as it used to be. In short, getting one is a must if you plan to avoid allergic reaction or infection in the future. And this review right here is not about air purifier, but rather a filterless air purifier that you can use and it works just as well.
For a start, this type of air purifier functions similar just like other air purifiers that wee see in the market; being a filterless means, you don’t spend additional expenses on a filter (as well as regularly washing them) and the machine relatively needs less power compared to the usual models.
This type of air purifier uses either ionization technology or thermodynamics to purify the air. For ionization, the machine generates electrons or protons to combine with chemicals of air pollutants, so they become either positively or negatively charged. Other charged particles then combined together and over time they get bigger and heavier that they stay in the purifier, freeing the air from such elements.
As for air purifiers that use thermodynamics, it’s a simple process of passing the air through super high temperatures to effectively kill microorganisms.
And you only need to use them for a relatively short time: simply close all doors and windows, switch on the machine and keep it running for a few hours (or as recommended by the manufacturer) and you’re done! For cleaning, do so after a couple of days with a cloth to wipe.
As a general guide, when it comes to purchasing a suitable air purifier for your needs, refer to the following; the range that an air purifier can cover, noise level (you might need it to be as quiet as possible.), energy consumption, the time it takes to clean the air, as well as overall size if you plan to have an air purifier that you can move around easily.
So, which filterless air purifier is the one fits with your needs?
Using the ionization process, the Ivation Ozone Generator Air Purifier discharges negative ions to clean the air up to 3500 sq ft effortlessly. Apart from the product design looking like a retro radio box, we say that this air purifier is worthy of your investment if you’re looking for a solid purchase.
This filterless air purifier covers a wide area, and the purification can run continuously for 24 hours with less power and while it works to neutralize odors and elements, the air purifier also emits a natural fragrance just like what you smell in nature. This model excellent coverage area, as well as the ability to remove and odor coming from a cigarette, paint fumes, or even food. One user even commented that you can simply turn on the purifier for one hour (windows and doors closed) and it will eliminate all of the unpleasant odor while giving off natural-smelling fragrance.
And we love the boxy design that assures a stable base and looking through the material and construction of the product we can tell that this air purifier will last for years. For best results, place the product higher than four feet to ensure even distribution of negative ions to work seamlessly.
The CARB-certified Air Free P1000 Filterless Air Purifier is superb when it comes to neutralizing allergen particles, microorganism, bacteria, and contaminants in one go, thanks to its ‘patented thermodynamic TSS technology’ that follows a boiling water concept. Because of this tech used, the Airfree doesn’t emit any ozone particles and other dangerous elements (in fact it reduces ozone up to 26%) that can be harmful to the lungs, especially for anyone that’s sensitive and/or have allergies.
This filterless air purifier is a master of destroying numerous allergens, viruses, bacteria, and many other carbon-based contaminants. Plus, being a filterless air purifier you don’t have to worry about regular cleaning and it will save you money and time for years to come. Indeed, testing the product, we concluded that Air Free P1000 Filterless Air Purifier is meant to last for years of use.
This model covers 450sq ft area – a rather small compared to the powerful Ivation but if the area of your rooms is within the range it surely serves no issue.
The notable downside is since it uses a thermodynamic mechanism, there’s a chance that this air purifier might get easily overheated in a hot environment that you may need to keep an eye on it to prevent the machine from broken. Otherwise, the product is all good and you can use either in a home or office settings.
Another Airfree model that we think is worthy for mention in this review, Air Free Onix3000 Air Purifier covers a bigger area compared to the P1000 model, with 650 sq ft. As with this model Air Free Onix3000 Air Purifier also uses a thermodynamic mechanism to kill off bacteria, germs, harmful components, tobacco, and dust mites to name a few.
On top of the features, we love that Air Free Onix3000 Air Purifier delivers a near-silent noise for a machine (we usually expect machines in this category to be noisy) that it makes a nice change to have one that works silently in the background. Plus, this Airfree model also doesn’t use any filters that it makes it easy for you to use and saving you time, money and energy to clean and/or change to a new one for replacement. Rest assured, even if this compact model is the higher grade, unlike the P1000 model, this model uses relatively low power and you can use it on a daily basis to clean the air.
And get this; Air Free Onix3000 Air Purifier also comes with a night light that you can use to create some relaxing ambiance while having the machine to work while you sleep. Yes, even if this model is on the pricey side, rest assured that it’s a worthwhile purchase as noted by other reviewers that have been using this air purifier for a couple of months.
There’s nothing not to love about Lightair Evolution IonFlow 50, the filterless air purifier that you need if you live in a place where pollutants are rampant (city and/or industrial residents, I’m looking at you). This model not only removes odor, but it also works to eliminate viruses, bacteria, mold, and pollen from the air up to 540 sq ft.
It starts by generating negative charge to bind onto the chemicals and allergens mentioned previously, and these negatively charged elements will move toward the positively charged connector at the bottom, which you can clean it after it fills up.
And yes, being filterless means you don’t have to worry anymore about replacing the filters for regular maintenance. Plus, the machine works quietly that you can leave it at the background while going on with your daily errands.
The downside is the model covers a rather small area, that we think it’s suitable for a small office instead of a living room. Coupled with the sleek design we say it’s perfect for office use, no problem. Simply plug and go and be done with it.
When it comes to the major brand that tops in the filterless air purifier, Envion Ionic Pro 90IP01TA01W Turbo Ionic Air Purifier is the one that you should be looking for. The superb model able to eliminate airborne microorganisms, odors, bacteria, mold, and other types of allergen within an hour – an impressive feat in our opinion (and rather fast compared to other models in this review). Plus, it can even destroy staph-type bacteria, the flu, and cold viruses to name a few, and these elements are the kind that poses serious ailments to our health.
The vertical design of Envion Ionic Pro 90IP01TA01W Turbo Ionic Air Purifier fits for both small and medium-sized rooms. Even with such capacity, you don’t have any problem to carry it anywhere you want to work with as it’s considerably lightweight to handle.
Touted to be a ‘forever filter’ meaning you don’t have to bother replacing filters for maintenance. On top of that, users that reviewed this air purifier is the one that has been using it for years – we think that if you’re looking for a hassle-free purchase and don’t mind the price, then this model is perfect for your needs.
For such affordable air purifier, the IonPacific ionbox, Negative Ion Generator definitely impresses us with its features.
Designed by UK and USA engineers, this particular model works based on several in-depth studies on ‘negative ion technology’ – as a result, this air purifier produces approximately 20 million negative ions per second at 500sq ft (a decent area in our opinion), the highest amount by any air purifier. The high number is important if you want to increase the chance to neutralize airborne elements that are harmful to your health.
And yes, this model also runs in lower voltage so you don’t have to worry with electric bills and replacement filters for years to come.
In our opinion, if you either have a serious allergy and/or living in dust/pollutant-infested area, this air purifier is the one you need. For such features, the price is unbeatable.
