Cons

High filters cost per year

No auto mode

 

 Could be better construction, front panel mount is fragile

 Only 1-year limited warranty

I am not 100% sure does ionizer produce ozone, but you can just
keep it turned off.

Have to choose between filters. Can’t combine them together.

Quite heavy, big size

Could be cheaper filters and more features

On first use, you may notice a slight odor from the active
carbon.

It doesn’t have air quality sensor, auto mode, timer and remote control. Only simple knob for fan speeds.

Conclusions, recommendations

Indoor Breathing choice


 Note: Though Clean Air Deliver Ratings (CADR) can be found for a large number of favorite brands, many of the most well-respected companies in the air purification field do not give CADRs to their purifier. This should in no way bias potential customers against them.


Summary:

Allergy air purifiers help remove allergens more efficiently than conventional air purifiers. That is because anti-allergy air cleaners are equipped with a few more components to aid their filtration. These can include massive particle filters, HEPA filters, ionizers, and even ultraviolet lights. While no air purifier will give you 100% allergy-free living, these top 5 best allergy air purifiers can drastically reduce the volume of airborne allergens in your house and hugely improve your symptoms.
