Recommendations for Air Purifier/HEPA filter?

Hey all,
Looking to get a new air purifier/HEPA filter for my home. It's like a 1 bedroom 700sq ft apartment. Most likely putting it in the living room. Dont wanna spend over 200 if that's ok. Hopefully getting one on sale. Don't got a Costco card either so open to other stores and in Vancouver area. I have used a Honeywell brand before but my ex took it so looking for a new one. Cheers!

Anyway Winix is a better buy, it has better coverage, filter replacement. Note the Costco Winix comes with 2 years supply of filter. For 700 square feet apartment, one single unit may be good enough unless you have serious indoor air quality issue in your apartment.
People around you may have weaken immune system (or live with one). Wear a mask if possible, especially if you have cold symptoms.

Buy by the weight, power and filter availability/cost.

Reason for the HEPA filter?

Check out the attached pic to give you some ideas. Start with CADR then check out the lower cost options at your CADR. One thing I really suggest is to buy the quietest machine at the CADR you require.

This is the one I would buy due to the high CADR and only 52db on high if you can stretch your budget to $211.50.

I picked up a couple of these Winix units on the recommendation of a facilities manager at a hospital. I'm happy with the purchases.

Today's pricing is ~$226.

Comes with a washable prefilter, 3 carbon filters and 1 HEPA filter. Super quiet, has manual, auto and sleep modes.
