Air purifiers for bedrooms, living rooms, home offices, etc.

A lot of pollen is on the way again for the current spring of 2020, which is why an air purifier from Dyson, Xiaomi, Venta or others is a good idea. The air purifiers not only clean the air with regard to pollen, but also filter out dust, animal hair, mold and odors. The result is clean air that is odorless and free of allergens. Whether for the whole house, apartment or individual room - there are different filters and cleaners for the air. Especially now in the Corona isolation with childcare at home, homeschooling and home office, the devices are ideal for noticeably increasing the air quality and thus contributing to the well-being of the entire household.

Air filters clean the air and filter out pollen, dust, animal hair and mold. Air purifiers and air washers can also remove odors.

Air purifier for large rooms (living room, office, etc.)

Air purifiers against pollen, dust and other unsightly components of the air usually have a HEPA filter, activated carbon and / or PM 2.5 filter. Large devices are for example the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier (here my test report from 2018) and the Dyson PureHot+Cool, which can also heat the filtered air, which is sometimes still necessary at the moment. The air washer models from are also intended for larger rooms (but not as a design element) Sell. The latter do not primarily use fabric filters, activated carbon or the like, but water to clean the air of dust, pollen and other allergens. There are versions for rooms and apartments up to 40 square meters or even 75 square meters.

Lifubide X600 air purifier - extremely quiet and powerful

From my point of view, a tip for allergy sufferers with light sleep is this Lifubide X600, which I had in the test. It is unbelievably quiet and in this night mode still manages to remove pollen and dust from 120 cubic meters of air per hour. Allergy sufferers who sleep lightly should take a look at this model. Attention: It seems that there are currently no replacement filters available in stores.

Air filter for smaller rooms (bedroom, children's room, bathroom, kitchen, etc.)

There are also inexpensive air filters for small rooms as well as table air purifiers that can be placed on the bedside table or desk. These air purifiers, some of which are offered for less than 100 euros (for example from Levoit), also offer filters in the HEPA, carbon and fabric range. A cheap model would be that Levoit Air Purifier with HEPA activated carbon combination filter for 79,99 euros on Amazon. The is specially designed for the desk and has the look of a retro PC speaker Levoit air purifier desktop for just now 29,99 euros on Amazon. On the individual product pages you will usually find links to replacement filters - but many filter models can also be washed out;)

Update 15.09.2022/600/XNUMX: Lifubide XXNUMX replacement filters are currently no longer available

In the comments, someone asked if my filter was actually collecting dust on the Lifubide X600. As a little "proof" I've included a photo of the filter below. We did grinding work in the house and you can see that in the wood dust in the filter. However, most of the particles are not caught at the top of the visible grid, but end up in the filter lamellae and in the activated carbon filter below.

However, the biggest disadvantage I currently see in the Lifubide X600 is the fact that there is currently no replacement filter on the market. The situation may change again soon, but before you get the Lifubide, click here on the Amazon search and see if there is a replacement filter.

    Was it a lot of dust on the filter?
    Where can I buy the filter?
    Can you feel with your hand that the machine sucks air?

    1. Do you recommend the Lifufide X600?
      → Yes, definitely! It's big, but that's why it's powerful.

      Was it a lot of dust on the filter?
      → I included a photo of the filter in the post above. There you can only see the outer grid of the filter. Most particles end up further inside in the folded filter fins or in the activated carbon behind. But you can already see on the outside of the filter that a lot of dust has settled there.

      Where can I buy the filter?
      → It was on Amazon for a while, but currently I can't find replacement filters for the X600 anywhere. sorry

      Can you feel with your hand that the machine sucks air?
      → Yes, you can clearly feel that.
