Air purifiers are a quick and straightforward way of improving the air quality in our homes and workspaces. If you’re looking for a trusted brand, HoMedics is one of the best out there.
We’ve put 4 of the most popular air purifiers from HoMedics through their paces to help you pick a model to work best for your situation. Whether you’re looking for something for your bedroom, office, or the entire home, HoMedics has something for you.
When cleaning our homes, we often pay so much attention to the dust and grime that we can see, overlooking the things we can’t, which can be just as harmful.
Pollutants, dust, and nasty smells in the air can be harmful to your family’s health, which is why the HoMedics TotalClean Tower is the perfect solution to your problems.
With this device, you can truly ‘set and forget’ as the air purifier works its magic to remove 99.97% of airborne contaminants (including allergens, dust, smoke, mold spores, and germs) from the air we breathe. Combined with the carbon filter, this HoMedics device also helps to remove nasty smells from your home.
What sets this device apart from the rest is that it goes one step further, boasting HoMedics’ UV-C technology. This technology uses UV light to increase its ability to keep your home healthy and allergen-free.
We found the purifier incredibly simple to use. It comes with a convenient automatic timer to turn off after 2, 4, 8, or 12 hours. It also comes with 3 whisper-quiet speed settings so you can customize the purifier to your needs. It comes with convenient and easy to use settings, all neatly labeled on the top of the machine for ease of use.
We love the fact that HoMedics devices come with built-in essential oil pads, which can be used to promote calm, serenity, and a restful night’s sleep. The calming night light works wonders in creating a soothing and comfortable atmosphere for the night ahead.
The tower comes in 4 different sizes and two color choices, depending on the type of room where it will be used:
If you’re looking for something small and compact, perhaps for use in an office or studio apartment, this fantastic desktop air purifier has you covered. Small but mighty, this air purifier can entirely refresh the air quality of a room up to 128 square feet every hour. The 360 Degree Filtration system makes it incredibly useful as it takes in air from all angles and one of the best personal air purifiers you can buy.
Despite being small in size, the device works to remove up to 99.9% of airborne contaminants as small as 0.3 microns for ultimate peace of mind. Not only that, but it’s carbon odor filter also helps to take nasty smells from the air. Its built-in ionizer makes it very effective at removing particles from the air around us.
This purifier’s ergonomic design really stands out to us as it is both sleek and discreet, meaning you can place it on your desk without it looking out of place. Like most HoMedics devices, it comes with three speed settings, a convenient timer, a replacement indicator, and an aroma pad to diffuse essential oils into the air. While this device lacks a night light, we don’t think it’s a complete deal-breaker, but it’s something to keep in mind if you intend to use it in a bedroom environment.
The TotalClean Desktop is also whisper-quiet when running, making it ideal to use in a work environment as it won’t act as a distraction or disturbance.
The 4-in-1 purifier from HoMedics is definitely one of the more unique filtration devices we have reviewed. Its tower-like design with black or white casing makes it incredibly discreet, perfect for an environment where you don’t want it to stand out, such as a bedroom. Its small size means it can fit neatly on a nightstand without becoming an eyesore while working in the background to eradicate any harmful allergens in the air.
Despite being pretty compact, it still boasts many features you come to expect when purchasing a HoMedics air purifier.
This 4-in-1 device comes with a pre-filter to remove pet dander and large particles, a carbon filter to get rid of nasty smells, an optional ionizer to increase efficiency as well as HoMedics’ iconic 360 degrees HEPA filtration. All these features combined allow it to filter 99.9% of pollutants from the air.
Unlike the other two devices so far, this 4-in-1 purifier only comes with 2 speed settings. That being said, it does boast a night light that the compact version lacks, so we think this would make an excellent device for the bedroom. Incorporating essential oils such as lavender through the aromatherapy pads can also promote a night of restful sleep.
All of the controls are conveniently accessed from the top of the device, making using simple and straightforward, perfect if you’re not too tech-savvy.
One of the best parts about this device is that it’s incredibly affordable, making clean air in the home accessible to all.
Love your pets but hate the smell they can leave in your home? The TotalClean PetPlus is the perfect solution for dealing with pesky pet odors, including wet dog and cat litter.
The TotalClean boasts a 3-in-1 filtration system that is specifically designed to tackle your pet problems. The pre-filter works to effectively remove pet hair, dander, and large particles from the air, preventing them from clogging up the main filter. The unique PetPlus odor filter is what sets this apart from the rest, as it effectively works to rid nasty aromas from your home. As if that wasn’t enough, the final stage filter is the HoMedics True HEPA filtration system, which works to remove 99.97% of airborne allergens and pollutants from the air around us, as well as pesky dust mites.
If you’re looking to take things one step further, the PetPlus also comes in a 5-in-1 model, which adds a UV-C filter and ionizer to the mix, as well as aromatherapy pads to add a relaxing scent to the air. It also boasts an upgraded, ergonomic design.
The PetPlus Air Purifier is incredibly simple to use and is ready to go from the box. It comes with a timer and three oscillation speeds, so you can completely customize the device to suit your own home.
The PetPlus boasts a modern, sleek design in a tower format that saves space in your home. While the 3-in-1 model lacks some of the features of the other models we reviewed, such as a night light or automatic mode, upgrading to the 5-in-1 design will add these at a minimum extra cost.
