A Better Air Filter : And it Looks Good Too


Air purifiers are big business, with allergies on the rise (environmental causes, anyone?) We wanted one that was 1) Quiet 2) Handsome, in a gadget-like way 3) And one that was HPA certified.

We ended up with the Honeywell HPA-050 "Tower" model because it came highly recommended; stamped with a HEPA rating and although it is compact, it’s a powerhouse when it comes to cleaning the air. This model claims to captures 99.97% of microscopic airborne allergens from the air that passes through its filter. The compact model handles a room 8'x 10' (80 sq.ft.)

It's also Energy Star rated so you can run it 24/7, which, frankly, is what you need in a city like L.A. The "pre-filter" filter also helps capture household oders such as tobacco smoke, cooking smoke, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, pet hair/fur, tree and grass pollen. (Replace every 3 months.)

And because all of us are too busy, it keeps track of when the filters need changing (figure every 12 months for an average household.) Best of all, you can order refills online.

$99 for the compact Honeywell HPA-050 Tower.
