Sure, you have all heard about air purifiers with HEPA filters. This kind of air purifier is considered to be the most effective, with HEPA filters removing over 99% of airborne particles without any harmful side-effects. This 99% includes everything that an average person can be allergic to – pollen, dust mite, and animal dander, so an air purifier with a HEPA filter is basically your ticket to an allergy-free life.

Update 2021:  We recently published a list of the best H13 air purifiers on the market today. H13 is one of the highest-rated HEPA filters and block a lot more particles than lower-rated filters like H11 and H10. As they stop so many particles, these are the filters that are used in a hospital setting.

Here is the list of the top three HEPA filter air purifiers that might help you to decide on the air purifier of your dream.

Honeywell 50250 99.97% Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier


This is one of the most popular air purifiers put there. And it’s not surprising – it is sturdy, powerful, quite inexpensive, and easily maintainable. Plus, the device features an exclusive 360° air intake and output which allows for thorough cleaning. A five-year warranty also earns a very good score for this air cleaner. This may not be the most silent air purifier, but its low price and high quality compensate for the noise. In fact, the Honeywell 50250 99.97% Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier is the only air purifier under $200 that is efficient in cleaning the air, according to ConsumerSearch and Consumer Reports.

Honeywell HHT-011 Compact Air Purifier with Permanent HEPA Filter

If you want a more silent air purifier and don’t want to spend a ton of money, this is a perfect option. The Honeywell HHT-011 Compact Air Purifier features a permanent filter, just like the Honeywell described above, which means that you won’t need to change filters. Another nice feature is that it costs about three times less.

We recently reviewed the very best Honeywell air purifiers on the market in 2021.

Whirlpool Whispure Air Purifier, HEPA Air Cleaner, AP51030K

Whirlpool-Whispure-Air Purifier-HEPA-Air Cleaner

This air purifier has it all – it is quiet and very efficient as it can filter the air in a 475 square feet room almost five times per hour and 120 times per day! Moreover, you can put it to sleep if you don’t want it to work all the time, choose one of four fan speeds or switch to turbo mode. The only downside is that you would have to shell out about three hundred bucks for this treasure. It is a superior air purifier, no doubt about that, but if you are not too eager to spend this kind of money and your room does not have many square feet, you can settle for the Honeywell 50250 99.97% Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier which has a 375-square feet capacity and costs about two times less.
