About Our Rating Process

The air purifiers on our site have been thoroughly reviewed with the primary test criteria being ease of use, air flow and filter efficiency. 

1. Ease of use describes the relative ease of operating the air purifier including general operation and the air filter replacement process. 

2. The air flow is a measure of the amount of air that is effectively pushed through the air purifier. This is one of the best metrics used to determine the size of the room the air purifier can clean. 

3. The final measurement is the air filter efficiency. This is a rating of the percentage of airborne particles that are removed by the air purifier with each air passage. 

The combination of these three metrics provides a strong foundation to rate air purifiers.  Other considerations such as product quality, design and power consumption are factored into the air purifier reviews but they will mainly be found in the consumer review sections. 

We also considered the technologies and favored HEPA and UV over electrostatic purifiers. We hope you find our air purifier reviews beneficial and look forward to serving you with content that is informative and valuable.
