Our top choice for people with larger spaces is the LEVOIT Vital 100 Air Purifier. With a CADR of 130 CFM/221 m3/h, it can clean 300 ft2/28 m2 in only 18 minutes.
Also included is a washable pre-filter for large particles like lint and fur, an H13 True HEPA Filter, which captures at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in size, and a High-Efficiency Activated Carbon Filter for fumes and unpleasant odors.
There are three speeds on the Vital 100: speed 1 is the quietest, speed 2 is a little louder but not too loud, and speed 3 is louder still but not overly loud. You can turn off the display lights for nighttime use, and the buttons are touch-sensitive without chimes.
You can set a timer for 2, 4, or 8 hours whenever you want. When it’s time to replace your filter, the Check Filter Indicator will alert you. During times of high pollution, such as wildfire season, this purifier will only cost you $1.66 a week to run.
The Vital 100 is also easy to place thanks to its compact design and top-facing air vents. Because the front is glossy, it may attract fingerprints and scratch more easily, but that shouldn’t be a problem. The plastic cover that the included filter has fitted over it needs to be removed!
