The Three Best UV Air Purifiers

If you’ve been shopping for an air purifier, you’ve probably become familiar with the basic HEPA and carbon filtration systems that the vast majority of air purifiers rely upon. However, there’s another type of air purification that is less common, but incredibly effective: UV, or ultraviolet light. Not all air purifiers come equipped with a UV system, but the ones that do offer an added layer of protection against some of the most harmful contaminants in your home air. Here’s the official US Air Purifiers list of the three best UV air purifiers.


  First, Why Would You Want a UV Air Purifier?


Before we get into the units, let’s talk about why you’d want to use an air purifier equipped with a UV lamp. As you probably know, most air purifiers work by physically filtering unwanted pollutants out of the air. However, physical filtration has its limits. Some microorganisms, especially viruses, are too small for standard filters to catch. UV light, on the other hand, can kill these organisms regardless of their size. UV air purifiers work by exposing organisms to UV light, which can penetrate their outer coatings because of its high-energy nature and damage their DNA. The result is a system which can kill viruses and support standard filtration of bacteria, mold and other organic contaminants.


  Some of the Best UV Air Purifiers


  Field Controls TRIO

  One of our favorite units here at US Air Purifiers is the Field Controls TRIO, a medical-grade air purifier that is small and portable enough to be used in home environments. One of this unit’s multi-stage filtration systems is a high-output UV germicidal lamp, which is part of what qualifies it as a hospital-grade unit. The TRIO can remove an incredible 99.9 percent of contaminants from the air during its first pass and will cover areas of up to 1,000 square feet.


  Airpura UV600

  Another of the best UV air purifiers is the Airpura UV600, a unit that has been specifically designed for use in spaces where viruses, germs and mold spores are key concerns. The UV600 offers both HEPA and activated carbon filtration, in addition to its germicidal lamp. This unit can cover areas of up to 2,000 square feet, making it ideal for larger homes or offices.


  AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5

  The last unit on our list of the three best UV air purifiers is the AirMedic Pro 5, AllerAir’s top-of-the-line model. This air purifier is equipped with medical-grade HEPA filtration, an impressive 18 pound bed of carbon and a UV lamp that rounds out its remarkable ability to remove organic contaminants of all kinds.
