The best UV air purifiers not only trap the bad stuff in your home’s air – they kill it, too! These purifiers use filters to trap particles like dust, pollen, and mold to cleanse the air, then use UV light to kill what the filter traps. We found 10 UV purifier systems we think every home should have! Before we get into the reviews, here are a few features you should consider before buying a new air purifier for your home.
HEPA Filter: A high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter is built to a specific standard to pull 99.97% of small particles from the air. This means it will clean the air of mold spores, pollen, pet dander, and other common allergens or irritants.
Coverage Area: To make sure you get the right air purifier for the size of your space, we noted the coverage area (in square feet) for each option. This can help you find a machine that is efficient and within your budget.
Kills Mold: In addition to trapping mold in the HEPA filter, UV air purifiers use light to kill the mold too! This keeps mold from growing in your machine, and that you won’t expose yourself to dangerous mold while cleaning your machine.
Eliminates Odor: Many of the air purifiers we reviewed also have extra filters and features to eliminate odors. This is great if you want to get rid of common household odors like pets, cooking, smoking, or mildew – even your roommate’s dirty laundry!
Size: We also noted the size of each purifier, so you can find one to fit your space. Small units are great for bedrooms and dorm rooms. Many of them are also designed to blend into your home’s existing décor, too!
Warranty: A warranty is a good sign that the air purifier you’re buying is a quality machine from a reputable company. It means they will fix or replace your machine if it malfunctions or breaks within a certain number of years.
