  • The Air Doctor air purifier 5000 model covers 868 sq. ft. 5x/hour and 2170 sq. ft. 2x/hour.
  • Features dual 3-stage filtration
  • STAGE 1: Two pre-filters for larger contaminants like dust and animal hair; can be vacuumed or hand-washed to be reused
  • STAGE 2: Two Carbon/Gas Trap/VOC filters that combine two types of media – activated carbon (1.65 lbs each, 3.3 lbs in total) to remove odors and gases (e.g., smoke) and potassium permanganate to deactivate certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde
  • STAGE 3: Two UltraHEPA filters that remove 100% of airborne particles at 0.003 microns (as compared to “ordinary” HEPA systems that remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns, Austin Air filters out 95% of particles 0.1 microns and larger.)
  • The UltraHEPA should be effective at filtering ultrafine particulate matter such as mycotoxins and viruses (COVID-19).
  • Uses a WhisperJet fan that is potentially 30% quieter than the fans in other air purifiers
  • Does not produce measurable ozone
  • Captures mold spores but does not eliminate mold (to eliminate mold, its sources should be professionally remediated)
  • Filter replacement: Carbon – every 6 months, UltraHEPA filter – once a year
  • Warranty: 1 year
  • Return policy: 30-day full refund
  • The California Air Resources Board categorizes Air Doctor air purifier 5000 as a “mechanical” air cleaner meaning that it only uses physical filtration, such as pleated or HEPA-style filters, and does not generate ozone or ions. Please read about Air Doctor 3000 and Air Doctor 1000 and their ozone emissions.
  • Price for the Air Doctor 5000: $999
