  1. Good Evening Irina,
    I was curious if you’d heard of the Airpura UV614 with SuperHepa? This Filter advertises it has 18lbs of activated carbon and claims to filter 99.99% of particulates with its Super HEPA system. It seems to have more activated carbon and filters about the same as the Austin bedroom machine. What are your thoughts on the two being compared?

    1. Hi, Kellen! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! We haven’t heard or done research into Airpura. What you said about it, though, sounds good.

    1. Hi, Janetta! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! Ozone emission may happen when the ionizing function is on, so we would not use the ionizer. Other than that, Air Doctor is fine.

    1. Hi, Dave! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! Air Doctor says the following about energy star rating of their purifiers: “AirDoctor 3000 and AirDoctor 5000 models are Energy Star Certified. AirDoctor still costs about $30-40 in electricity per year, depending on the cost of electricity in your area, running on Auto mode, and assuming 24/7 run time.” We hope this helps!

      1. Hello! Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, I was not able to verify the EnergyStar certification on the manufacturer website nor the government EnergyStar site. Can you post a link of where you got this information? Thanks!

        1. Hi, Dave! I got this info from the “support” chat on the Air Doctor website. It would be great if you did your own research by contacting them: the more of us show our interest, the sooner we’ll see the change for the safer and transparent market. Let us know what you will find out! Thank you for your concern and participation!

  2. IQAIR HyperHEPA is able to filter 99.5% of harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than 0.3 microns. Curious to know why you chose autin air over IQair? I have also read Austin air is extremely loud.

    1. Hi, Nadia! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! One of the Austin Air features we truly appreciate is the amount of activated carbon (15 lbs), which is effective with removing gases, especially during the wildfires season. Another thing is that their filter life expectancy is 5 years, which is the longest we have seen in the air purifier models we have researched. We hope this helps!

    1. Hi, Leslie! Thank you for the info! We wonder if the actual test reports have been published or whether you have seen the actual test reports.

  3. Hi Irina,

    Molekule did an Independent test with Berkeley Labs and it showed Molekule has no ozone emissions.

  4. Are any of these humidifiers as well? I am in desperate need of a humidifier for my very dry (at night) room and was wondering if you can review some or if any of these purifiers act as humidifiers too?

  5. Hi there! We own the 1000 and 3000 Air Doctor. Is ozone omitted with those even if the ionizing option is off? I have never used those settings. We are looking at the Austin air now but it’s so expensive to have in every bedroom:/

  6. Appreciate all this detailed info. Is there a “most economical” favorite you can recommend, something under $150? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Jaz FL! Unfortunately, none of the air purifier models we surveyed and that are effective costs as low as $150. The good news is that you have this free information on air purifiers that you can use as your road map for your own discoveries.
