Buy BlueAir if you can. Stay away from these random Amazon brands like Levoit and TaoTranics. You can see this article from CBC on their comparison of Air Purifiers, it does not cover this particular model but is a good indicative - https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/portab ... -1.5900782

Also, Ikea air filter is a good option for a low price.

The fact that it's not digital may be a good thing. It means if you wanted to you could hook it up to a smart plug if you wanted to use scheduling features etc.

There is a timer on this - you can literally see it in the photos. You can set it to 1H, 4H and 8H.

Edit to add to this: I own a different model and it has a super low fan mode that is basically silent. Secondly, don't trust the reviews on Amazon Smiling Face With Open Mouth
Edit 2: misread - thought OP was talking about taotronics

Why do folks need air purifiers anyway? Is canadian air not clean? Is this thing going to significantly reduce the amount of dust in my home? Further.... I live in a 3 bedroom house. Do you need a purifier in each room? It seems so unnecessary

They compared apples and oranges. I don't know what's so hard about comparing similarly sized purifiers designed for similar spaces.

A lot of condos get really dusty, fast and the only point where you get any filtration is the fan coil unit. It's especially useful in reducing the staleness of the air in the winter when you don't want to keep the window open.

I got 2 cats and my gf is a serial shedder in a 2 bedroom 900 sq ft condo. I groom them every week and especially during seasonal change, they can shed a lot.

I have 2 air purifiers (RabbitAir 550sq ft models) and this is about 2 weeks of cleaning. It also has a carbon filter to filter out cooking smells. It works real well for us.

I have this exact model. I bought it in the winter and left it near my bedroom vent. The amount of dust accumulated was high. I would just clean it once every 2 weeks.
Spring came around and continued using it because of heavy allergies. Noticed the room getting humid while this was running. Turned it off and the room was no longer humid.

Not good for spring/summer use. Would get it only for use in the colder fall/winter.

Level 1 isn't noticeable at all, 2 is reasonable but i like white noise, 3 is definitely too loud to enjoy, I sit 2-3 feet away from it in a small office

I was referring to the IKEA one not having a timer.

Pets, dust, older homes, allergies, cooking smells if you don't have adequate ventilation, smokers in building, etc.

I have 1 and just for my basement office - newer flooring etc and there is a high VOC reading in the room.

Nice. Thanks. Considering getting this one if it performs well, especially for the price.

My room seems to get a ridiculous amount of dust. Wouldn't mind giving this a try.

Have you noticed a difference?

At first read, I read your gf is a serial shredder. Thinking she goes around shredding any paper she sees. Then to add further confusion, you groom her as well?

Sorry. I'm sleepy. Need more coffee. Lol.

except the levoit worked exactly as described, i mean they tested a blue air 211 rated for much larger spaces compared to the levoit model they chose. levoit makes a number of models and there's lots of 3rd party testing on the various models and they perform very well and as described in terms of cadr and efficiency

Don't trust the reviews. Most sellers paid to get a good review.

pay attention..the ikea one is rated only for upto 10sqm or 108sqft, it would've performed terribly in that test as well against purifiers rated for larger spaces. That comparison by cbc is useless other than they point out it's cadr that matters and all the tested models performed near their rated cadr

so you can't just compare an ikea purifer rated for 100 sqft vs the one posted rated for 224 sqft. you need two ikea ones (and two filter replacements) to get same air purifying capacity as the one posted.
