Air purifiers aren’t just about making a room feel cleaner. They can also be a great boon to your health. Some air purifiers (like the ones we will be talking about today) are designed to kill bacteria and viruses that can cause all kinds of sicknesses. And in light of the fact that the air quality in the average American home is 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, you can use all the help you can get. So today we are going to be looking at products from two companies that are pioneering air purification technology to improve overall health: Molekule and Air Oasis.
Air Oasis vs. Molekule Comparison Ratings
Molekule vs. Air Oasis Reviews
The Air Oasis 1000G3 utilizes photocatalytic oxidation in order to kill viruses, germs and volatile organic compounds in the air. But perhaps the best thing about this air purifier is that there are no filters to replace! You don’t have to spend money every 3 or 6 months on replacement filters for this air purifier. It combines photocatalytic oxidation with an ionizer and UVC light to sanitize the air and kill a wide array of pollutants instead.
- Easily fits on a counter, bookshelf or coffee table
- Sports a clean, sleek design
- Features a carbon filter to eliminate odors too
This Air Oasis model has all the same great features of the 1000G3 but as the name suggests, it covers 3,000 square feet of space – an upgrade from the 1,0000 square feet covered by the 1000G3. You would think it would be at least twice as large as the 1,000G3 but it is the exact same width and just 2 inches taller (16”).
- Great for large living rooms
- You never have to change a dirty filter with this air purifier
- Runs relatively quietly for the amount of air it can purify
The Molekule Air Purifier also uses a catalyst filter that oxidizes pollutants in order to reduce the amount of germs in the air. It also uses free radicals to further break down bacteria and neutralizes it. It features a pre-filter that captures larger particles like dust and hair. And because it doesn’t rely on traditional filters to purify the air, it operates very quietly. It is also more energy-efficient than standard air purifiers.
- Molekule has an optional filter delivery subscription program
- This air purifier was designed very well
- It can be operated through your smartphone
At just 12” x 8.3” and 11 pounds, the Molekule Mini is great to have for smaller areas. It is extremely portable and sports a medical-grade polycarbonate frame. It is very sturdy and features the same photo electrochemical oxidation filtration as the standard Molekule Air Purifier. There is also a pre-filter to help keep larger particles out of the air.
- Useful for promoting respiratory health
- Can be used in rooms up to 250 square feet
- Non-descript design makes it a fit in almost any room
Air Oasis vs. Molekule Company Comparison
Air Oasis is a company that focuses on air purifying products. They also make a line of commercial air quality products. Their CEO is Jon Bennert who states that the company’s mission is to help families all around the world breathe healthier air in their homes. With the 1000G3 and 3000G3, we can also tell that Air Oasis hasn’t forgotten about sustainability. These models are filter-less which is good for the environment and for your wallet.
Molekule was started by a pair of Stanford-educated engineers with the hope of bringing a viable alternative to standard HEPA filters to consumers. Their PECO filter technology is unique and effective. By using their products, it’s plain to see that Molekule values modern design and technology.
The air purifiers made by both these companies offer an effortless way to improve the health of you and your family. The Air Oasis models are also more eco-friendly and economical since there are no filters to replace.
The PECO filtration technology of the Molekule air purifiers is very effective and it produces no ozone. If you are looking for an air filter that can help keep you healthy, we recommend any of the ones we reviewed in this article.
