If you’ve always equated air purifiers with doctor’s offices and hospitals, it might be time to start seeing them differently. Air purifiers are a line of defense against pollen, pet dander and allergens — they attract and capture all the microscopic particles floating in the air to give you a cleaner, fresher home. They even get rid of lingering food odors — think the chicken tikka masala you made for dinner last night.
Don’t be intimidated by the sheer amount of options out there: We know one that’s not only on sale, but has tons of rave reviews to back it up. That’s right: The Medify MA-14W Medical Grade Filtration, on sale for $100 (was $170), looks like an art installation, but it’s not all aesthetics. This thing is a powerhouse, trapping over 99.9 percent of dust, pollen, smoke, allergens and odors.
It uses a medical-grade H13 True HEPA filter to trap the nasty stuff. Three fan speeds, a night light and sleep mode keep the unit running at all times of day.
Over 1,200 shoppers have rated the Medify MA-14W Medical Grade Filtration an average of 4.6 stars — a rare feat! Plus, over 92 percent of shoppers rated it four stars or higher.
“I did a lot of research before making a purchase and I really loved the positive feedback Medify gets for their H13 Medical Grade filters,” one shopper said. “I just purchased their new unit and it is so nice and makes my bedroom air feel fresh and clean. For the price this far outperforms other units at similar cost. And the lifetime warranty sold me!”
It’s also a great find for those with allergies.
“We put these in our office and home and they work so well!” another shopper said. “I have a lot of people in our household with allergies so I can tell due to these how they are helping my family. They also get rid of any not-so-great smells pretty fast! They are the perfect size and don’t take up too much room.”
The whisper-quiet gadget has plenty of fans among parents, too.
“This was probably one of the best buys I could have made for my family,” a reviewer chimed in. “I bought two and they work very well. The air is fresher, the sneezing is practically absent now, and near-silent operation is simply terrific. Outstanding product that delivers!”
In short: This gizmo is so popular, it practically has a fan club.
“First apartment in NYC and needed an air purifier badly,” a shopper declared. “Love the city but I am from the country and the air in my building was not good. The Medify air purifier works so well and it fits perfectly in my studio. Since it is an open floor plan it covers the whole place. I can breathe again.”
