    Best Overall

    The Rabbit Air Minus A2 is impressive in visual appeal with its white slim design, performance, and quiet that it’s hard to say this air purifier comes with any major weakness. 

    At roughly 21 decibels, thanks to its Brushless Direct Current Motor technology, the Minus A2 is silent indeed. 

    The Minus A2 comes with a 6-stage air purification system. You get double the pre-filtration along with a True HEPA filter and BioGs technology for top-notch power, cleaning, and a 2-year filter life.

    You even have customized filters suited for germs, toxins, odor, or pet hair. Its Artist Series function also features famous paintings to use as a display. 

    Although advertised of up to 815 ft room coverage, half would be the maximized cleaning performance. Last but not least, its low power consumption makes it arguably one of the best quiet air purifiers in the market. 

    6-Stage Air Purification System

    BioGS HEPA filter comes with 5 additional filters for improved cleaning and micron particle size capture

    Customized Filter Options

    Choose between germ defense, pet dander, odor, or toxin absorber to suit your specific needs

    Energy Star Certified

    Certified to consume power at a lower cost and save energy

    • Gorgeous Design
    • Impressive range of features
    • Great Personalization & Customization
    • Wall Mount Option

    CONS

    • Expensive
    • WiFi Capabilities are Limited

    Who it’s for:

    • Excellent choice for any living space or area
    • Willing to spend extra for top-notch smart features

    Best Budget Pick

    Even though it’s considered to be one of the low-tier air purifiers, it’s still considered as one of the best air purifiers. With sound levels ranging from 25 to 54 dB, you can sleep peacefully even at the highest setting. 

    For a reasonable price, you’re looking at a True HEPA Filter, impressive CADR, and Eco Mode feature. 

    I’d say the Coway 1512 HH is an air purifier best appreciated for its invaluable features, white/black aesthetic design, and reasonable price.  

    Compared to Hamilton Beach, Coway is a leading brand in performance although it’s fair to say also that Hamilton Beach is more reasonably priced. 

    When it comes to the price bracket, the closest would actually be Hamilton Beach but because it lacks the room coverage and CADR rating compared to Coway, it’s definitely a winner for the budget pick. 

    To save the best for last, the Eco Mode feature is a wonder miracle for your electric bills. 

    At the lowest power consumption of just 4.9 Watts, even mid-tier air purifiers don’t come close although  on its highest setting, it can eat up to 78 Watts. 

    4-Stage Air Purification System

    The True HEPA filter comes with 3 additional filters for any odors, pet dander, and gases in the air.

    Energy Saving Eco Mode

    Energy saving mode after 30 minutes of zero detected air pollutants

    Energy Star Certified

    Certified to consume power at a lower cost

    Adjustable Timer

    3 adjustable timer options of 1, 4, or 8 hours setting

    PROS

    • Excellent Energy Saver
    • Elegant Design
    • Superb Performance
    • Really Quiet

    CONS

    • Uses an ionizer and emits a considerable amount of ozone

    Who it’s for:

    • You need a powerful, budget friendly air purifier
    • Great choice for large spaces especially the bedroom
    • To save on electric bills annually

    Most Energy Saving

    The Rabbit BioGs 2.0 550A is your best pick for a mid range quiet air purifier. Its white, minimalist design, all-in-one button and 23 decibels of sound are a worthy choice. 

    Although it doesn’t filter air compared to a 6-stage filtration, the BioGs technology makes it an effective cleaner with a 3 year filter life. 

    Don’t worry about the ionizer feature since it’s recorded to measure up to only 0.1 ppm, which is more than reliable to address safety concerns. 

    Energy consumption is also worth noting since it operates at a mere 5 Watts in the lowest setting and 29 Watts in its highest. So, expect higher savings on your electric bill.

    Altogether, the 550A is an ideal mid-range quiet air purifier for your bedroom. 

    BioGS HEPA Filtration

    An improved version of the HEPA filtration system to trap air particles up to 0.1 microns and promotes longer filter life

    Dual Element Sensor + Filter Life Monitor

    Senses both air pollutants and odors and adjusts accordingly to the environment

    Motor that runs effectively and ultra quiet

    PROS

    • Minimalist Design
    • Ultra Quiet
    • Great Mid-Range Value
    • Superb Filtration System
    • Energy Saver

    CONS

    • All-in-one button control decreases usability rating

    Who it’s for:

    • Excellent choice for those who suffer greatly from asthma and allergies
    • You’re looking for powerful cleaning power and save long-term

    The Whirlpool Whispure WP500 purifier doesn’t carry a wide range of features compared to most purifiers, but it’s surely quiet coming in at a range of only 40 to 49 decibels (dB) 

    The two biggest benefits are its air filtration capacity and clean air delivery rate (CADR). 

    Both the charcoal and HEPA filters make the WP500 a highly efficient air purifier in trapping 99.9% of air particles although; the filters are pricey. 

    Room coverage is outstanding at 490 ft along with a 12 minute cleaning period. Be careful, though. The WP500 operates at 110W so it’s not exactly energy saving.  

    Features-wise, the WP500 is limited but comes with a Sleep mode function for the quietest operation with an 8-hour timer and a Child Lock function. 

    With a fairly steep price and excellent air filtration, the Whirlpool WP500 is a good contender for quiet air purifiers.

    4 Speed Settings

    Adjustable fan speed along with Turbo setting and sleep mode for a quiet, energy saving function

    Charcoal Pre-filter + HEPA filter

    Charcoal pre-filter absorbs smoke and VOC’s and pre-cleans air before reaching HEPA filter to remove any airborne pollutants.

    The Winix 5300-2 is one of the lightest air purifiers making it a quick move in your home or office. Noise levels are also impressive at only 28 decibels. 

    The Winix purifier offers a 3 stage air purification system with its Plasma Wave Technology said to be perfect for airborne bacteria and germs.

    While it works nearly similar to an ionizer, no ozone emissions have been evident. Air Changes per Hour (ACH) is also 4x so it cleans your room every 15 minutes. 

    The drawbacks of the Winix purifier though are its filter replacement cost are and high power consumption of 70W. That said, it’s still invaluable for its many features along with quiet performance & decent price.

    • You need room coverage for a larger room or office space

    The Blue Pure 411 may be the smallest purifier in this list, but it’s also the quietest. Due to its size, it’s only capable of purifying a space with a maximum coverage of 161 feet. 

    With 17 dB as its lowest noise rating and 46 dB as its highest, it’s definitely silent. What’s also worth mentioning is the Energy Star rating with a power consumption of only 1.5 Watts. 

    That means you’ll save a lot of energy using this in your room or even if you decide to use two at the same time! 

    In regards to filtration, the Blue Pure 411 uses a 3 step filtration process starting from the  pre-filter  for dust and pet hair, particle filter for allergens, mold spores, smoke and an activated carbon filter for volatile compounds. 

    It’s ACH (Air Changes per Hour) rating is also 5x, meaning you can expect your room to be purified every 12 minutes

    The Dyson Pure Cool is no ordinary air purifier since it also works as a fan. 

    The white sleek design is also visually appealing. The sound levels; however, are relatively louder than most at 40 to 62 decibels but still quiet enough not to disturb you. 

    It’s worth noting Dyson’s Real time sensor, which allows you to track the amount of air pollutants, gases, VOC’s, and even temperature & humidity all in real time. 

    Dyson also adds a reverse airflow feature to push air backwards instead of in the front end and a night-time mode setting ideal for light sleepers.

    Lastly, Dyson allows the use of voice commands and controls your purifier easily except for changing the fan oscillation and airflow. 

    At a steep price level, the Dyson Pure Cool is a good choice if you have enough money to spend on and is considerably a tower air purifier with solid purification and fairly quiet levels.

    Consider These Tips for An Even Better Air Purifier Investment

    Quiet isn’t the only factor to a great sale or investment. Even with ultra quiet levels, you also want to maximize value ideal for your home. Don’t get me wrong. A silent purifier is already a bonus on your part. But I also want to help you get more than just silent.

    Here are some additional tips you can add to your silent purifier.

    Essential Features/Accessories

    What You Need To Look Out For:

    • Filter Replacement Indicator
    • Air Sensor Technology
    • Remote Control or WiFi Enabled

    Why Is It Important?

    Air purifiers use filters to trap and capture pollutants and over time this wears down. A filter replacement indicator is easier on your part instead of manually having to check whether or not your filter is in mint condition.

    On that note, Rabbit Air offers durable filters with a filter life of 2 or 3 years.

    Filter replacement kits also matter when it comes to price. Some can go as high as over $50 and some below $30. But it highly depends on which brand you go for.

    Air Sensor tech is useful down to the last bit. It’s less effort on your part when it comes to adjusting speed settings and what’s ideal for your current environment. Again, this is all about convenience on your part and higher usability.

    Lastly, remote access is a sure win in easing the comfort of controlling your purifier anywhere and from a convenient distance. You won’t have to get up every time and fidget between the controls.

    Certifications

    What You Need To Look Out For:

    Why Is It Important?

    Certifications are all about credibility and trust. There’s a sense of reliability when you can trust the product you’re using. And it’s not just more value, it’s more benefits as well.

    Energy Star Certification reflects on how efficient your purifier is. You can find purifiers below 10 W of power consumption for huge savings on your part.

    A Quiet Mark Seal reflects on how beneficial the product can be in your bedroom or when you want better sleep, focus, and productivity.

    With AHAM, you get your CADR rating and room guidelines. A CADR range between 120 and 240 is already more than effective for purifying your home. Steer clear though from those below 60.

    Replacement Filter Cost

    What You Need To Look Out For:

    • Permanent Filters
    • High Quality Filters

    Why Is It Important?

    Replacement filters aren’t exactly cheap. And if you’re regularly using your purifier every 8 – 10 hours daily, expect a replacement between 3 to 6 months of usage. If you’re lucky, you get an extra year or a bonus, 2 years.

    True HEPA filters and HEPA filters are relatively pricey as a stand-alone. For filtration systems that go past more than 3 stages, this might lead to even higher prices.

    Don’t be discouraged though. There are a number of filters in the market that offer high durability, permanent filters for longer filter life, and even customized filter kits for specific needs.

    Higher-tier purifiers might mean more cost but they also give you twice the value and benefit along with long-term savings whereas you spend too low to save and it leads you to buy more than one unit in the same year.

    Room Size

    What You Need To Look Out For:

    • Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) Seal
    • CADR Rating

    Why Is It Important?

    From a customer’s perspective, where you use your purifier has an impact on either overcompensating your needs or under compensating what matters. And that’s additional cost to your cart.

    An AHAM seal adds more trust to the room coverage label description and it might help to do a little review. Then again, you have 7 of those purifiers here as a guide.

    CADR Ratings tell you how quickly your air purifier cleans the pollutants, odors, pet dander, etc. Every pollutant has different CADR ratings, so choose one within the ranges of 120 to 240.  

    Every purifier varies in room coverage. It’s also important to note the size of the area you’re purifying. Your bedroom or kitchen isn’t relatively big compared to living rooms or offices so lower room coverage is good enough for a bedroom.

    When investing in an air purifier, it’s best to always look at how it can also maximize your benefits not just in sound but also in what’s important to you.

    Our Preferred Pick

    The Rabbit Minus A2 takes the crown on this list. Features-wise, it’s impressive and downright visually stunning in its white-coated color. 

    With its noise levels only at 21 decibels, it’s hard to say most purifiers come close to this range. 

    More importantly, this all comes down to the factors you put into perspective: room size, replacement filter cost, certifications, and essential features.

    I consider room size and replacement filter cost as my highest priorities because in effect, you also get efficiency and run lower costs in return. 

    At the end of the day, the best purifier comes down to the preferences that match your needs best.
