Best for Bedrooms

CUCKOO 3-in-1 Filtration H13 True HEPA Air Purifier


Why We Like It

The Cuckoo 3-in-1 True HEPA Air Purifier’s simple setup and filter insertion had us up and running with little fuss. The intuitive interface and color-coded air-quality reader made adjustments easy. And on the two lower settings, the noise levels were not distracting.

While we noticed a marked improvement in air quality during the 30-minute test on the lowest setting, on the high (turbo) setting the device failed to reduce odors adequately and lacked the power required to pick up pet hair. The reduced high-setting efficacy for the low setting delivered an 82% reduction in PM2.5 and a 92% reduction in TVOC; compared to -58% PM2.5 and -57% TVOC while on turbo. 

This may not be the best option for large spaces, but 30-minute particulate reductions of over 50% in a 177 sq ft room are still very good. So, if you’re after a budget bedroom purifier, you get great bang for your buck with the Cuckoo 3-in-1 when coupling its small-room performance with its low price point and annual running/maintenance costs of around $100.

It’s Worth Noting

On the highest setting, this purifier is noisy and its performance was less impressive.
