The best air purifiers

for large rooms:

A guide to cleaner air

The importance of clean air 

We all want to breathe clean air, especially in our own homes. Unfortunately, many homes contain pollutants and allergens that can have a negative impact on our health. This is especially true for large rooms, which can trap pollutants and leave us feeling stuffy and uncomfortable.

In this article, we’ll take a look at the best air purifiers for large rooms, and how they can help to improve the air quality in your home. 

What to look for in an air purifier for large rooms 

When shopping for an air purifier for a large room, there are several key factors to consider. These include: 


  • Room size: Make sure that the air purifier you choose is designed to handle the size of your room. Some air purifiers are designed specifically for large rooms, while others may struggle to keep up. 
  • Filter quality: A good air purifier should have high-quality filters that are capable of capturing a wide range of pollutants. Look for air purifiers with HEPA filters, as these are some of the best at removing allergens and other harmful particles from the air. 
  • Noise level: Large rooms can be noisy, and the last thing you want is for your air purifier to add to the noise. Look for air purifiers that are quiet and won’t disturb your peace and quiet. 
  • Energy efficiency: Large rooms can be expensive to heat and cool, so look for air purifiers that are energy-efficient and won’t add to your energy bill.

Ready to start your clean air journey?

Blueair air purifiers are simple to use and have something special: We are the only major air purifier brand to verify 100% of our models for performance for Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR).


1. Based on removal testing of PM 2.5 (0.1 - 2.5 microns) and germs (H1N1, E.coli) up to 90min in a 30m3 room. Performance may vary. Not all Blueair air purifiers have been tested against SARS-CoV-2, and Blueair does not claim to kill/prevent transmission of COVID-19. 


2. When equivalent CADR was measured, Blueair model with mechanical and electrostatic filtration achieved less noise with less energy than same model with only H13 HEPA mechanical filtration. The lower noise refers to the difference in sound power levels (dB(A)). Performance may vary.
