Air quality is important in the world we are living at this moment. Pollution is spreading in all corners of the world, and most polluted places are big cities.
Maybe you can not change the world, but you can keep the air in your home at a high-quality level. For pet owners, this goal may be a little bit harder because pets go out, don’t wear shoes, collect dust and leave pet dander all over the place. People who are allergic to pets need to avoid that kind of places. But you can do something about it; you can buy an air purifier for pets. There are many different models available on the market, and I am here to present you top 10 of them.

Here is the List of Top 10 Air Purifiers For Pets
1. Rabbit Air MinusA2
Air MinusA2 uses the latest technology for filtering the air. Air purifier uses ultra quiet HEPA filter which is the Rabbit trademark. It is called BioGS HEPA filter, and with that high-tech filter pet dander, dust and other things with which your dog may pollute your house will be removed. By using a carbon filter, Air MinusA2 has the ability to remove pet odor in very short time. But this air purifier also has other features like the power of removing viruses and bacteria. Rabbit Air MinusA2 is perfect for medium to large rooms, but you can also use it in smaller rooms where it can filter air in extremely short time. It does not create ozone, and it is perfect for your or pets health, no harm will be done to your pet.The modern design of this air purifier will fit every room. You will often be asked what is that device because it will attract the eyes of the visitors.
2. Hamilton Beach TrueAir
If you are buying this extremely affordable air purifier for your pet problems, then you must look at the Pet Specialized model. The standard model does not contain two zeolite replacement filters. These filters are used against pet odor, and they work extremely good. Also, you should keep in mind that this air purifier has permanent HEPA filter which is an excellent thing for your budget, but the quality of that permanent HEPA filter is doubtful in the long term. HEPA filter job is to capture all the particles larger than 0.03 microns, and that may make the filter dirty. Yes, you can clean it up with your vacuum cleaner, but will you remove all the unwanted particles? That question sadly can only answer people who use this air purifier for years. You will know that after you use it for more than two years and after you have clean your HEPA filter, then you will see if the cleaning of HEPA filter is working.
3. GermGuardian AC4825
Another affordable model comes from Guardian Technologies company, and this one is actually 3 in 1 air purifier. It has the true HEPA filter, odor reduction filter and it uses UV-C sanitization technology. Because of the UV-C technology this air purifier is called GermGuardian. It uses UV-C light with titanium dioxide to kill airborne viruses, germs, bacteria, and spores. For removing pet odor, this amazing air purifier uses activated carbon filter. You can also buy four pack special carbon filter for more power to eliminate pet odor in your home. For larger rooms and strong odors the size of the carbon filter matters. Small carbon filters just do not have the power to remove all odor if the odor is extremely strong or if the room is too large for the carbon filter capacity.
4. Winix WAC9500 Ultimate Pet
Ultimate Pet means that this air purifier is built for people that own pets. People that wish to remove all the pet allergens and bad smells. This air purifier uses five stage air filtration system. It has washable pre-filters which will prolong the life of the expensive true HEPA filter. True HEPA filter is standard in modern air purifiers and in Winix WAC9500 it is a replaceable filter. Air purifier also has CleanCel antibacterial treatment which prevents spreading of bacteria. This model uses the granular carbon filter to remove odor, and this technology works as good as the activated carbon filter. But Winix also has PlasmaWave which attacks air pollution on the molecular level and with this technology odor, bacteria and viruses are removed at the smallest possible level.
5. GermGuardian AC4100
This model is the second GermGuardian model from the well-known Guardian Technology company. Which one is the better is hard to tell, you will need to decide that on your own. But this model is also 3 in 1 model with odor reduction, UV-C sanitizer and of course true HEPA filter. GermGuardian models all use special Guardian Technology which uses UV-C light with titanium dioxide combination to destroy germs, bacteria and other unwanted things. The odor is removed in the same way as in the GermGuardian AC4825 with the help of activated carbon filter. AC4100 also has the ability to use four pack carbon filter which is more powerful at odor reduction.
6. Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0
We already know that Rabbit Air is one of the best company considering air purification. BioGS is their HEPA technology that works perfectly at removing various airborne pollutants. In this model is four-stage air purification system. BioGS 2.0 has pre washable filters which are the good thing for your HEPA filter and probably that is the reason for long lasting filters. Charcoal carbon filter and BioGS HEPA filters only need to be changed once in three years if you use air purifier every day for 12 hours. This model also has ultra-quiet mode option, and it is suitable for the bedroom, and I know many of you sleep with your dogs in the same room because our pets want to be close to us even in the night time.
7. Blueair Classic 405
Blueair Classic 405 has two models, one is manual, and the other is WiFi enabled. WiFI enabled means that you can control it remotely from everywhere. Blueair is also well known for their HEPASilent technology. HEPASilent is using particle filter with the electrostatic charge, and that just makes this air purifier even more efficient at removing unwanted particles from the air. All kind of allergens can be eliminated from the air not only pet dander or pet odor. For pet odor, this air purifier uses a carbon filter. Carbon filters are well known as very useful devices for removing smoke, gas, and odor. You can install this air purifier in large or medium size room.
8. PureZone True HEPA Air Purifier
PureZone air purifier is competing with GermGuardian air purifiers, and it uses the same technology for destroying unwanted particles in the air. It uses UV-C sanitization to eliminate pet dander, dust, mold spores, pollen, and odor. It also uses true HEPA filter which puts it in the category of the serious air purifiers and with the affordable price it is one of the best air purifiers to buy for your pets. Just like many others on this list, PureZone also uses activated carbon filter for removing odor from the air. This selection just proves that activated carbon filter is number one technology in removing unwanted smells from your home.
9. Winix 5300-2
Winix 5300-2 is bigger and stronger version of Winix air purifier. This model has everything you need to combat pet allergies. True HEPA filter is inside, carbon activated filter is ready to remove bad odors from the room, and PlasmaWave technology will kill and destroy all the tiniest particles that may harm you or your pets. This model produces zero ozone so you can put it beside your little animal and you can rest assured that no harm will be done. This air purifier is also recommended for baby rooms, nursery, and even offices.
10. Philips Air Purifier 2000
One of the best quality air purifiers comes from Philips. Philips Air Purifier 2000 is made for large or medium rooms. It is a powerful device capable of fast air filtration. It has three filters, washable pre-filters, true HEPA and active carbon filter for pet odor removing. Philips use standard well-known true HEPA filter for removing airborne particles and just as any other true HEPA filter out there on the market, this one also removes everything larger than the 0.03 microns, in other words, 99.97% of the airborne particles. But Philips offers as well some innovation in their model. AeraSense technology is perfect for detection of the air quality. If the air quality in the room drops, the air purifier will jump the gear and start faster air filtration. AeraSense also makes sure that air purifier is not working at maximum speed when it is not needed. This feature just saves electricity and filters.
I am not sure if I helped you or just made you even more confused. But if you have read through the all ten mentioned air purifiers you will see that some things they all have in common. All of them use true HEPA filter, and only one of them is having not removable HEPA filter which is a good and a bad thing, good thing for saving money and a bad thing for air filtration quality. The second point in common is that they all use some way of odor removing and all of them use carbon or other similar types of odor eliminating filter. Not a single air purifier on this list uses ionization process to reduce dust or remove odor. That means not a single air purifier on the list will create ozone. And we know that ozone in high levels is lethal.
Humans have higher levels of ozone tolerance than animals. For example, if you have birds in your house even a little rise of the ozone may harm your pet. If you decide to pick an air purifier that is not on my list, then keep in mind to check if the air purifier produces ozone and if it does then don’t buy it. The second thing to look for is the true HEPA filter. Without true HEPA filter pet danders will most probably not be removed effectively.
