VonHaus Air Purifier
What are we looking at?
The VonHaus air purifier is a 4 stage filtration air purifier in the lowest pricing tier. The most affordable air purifier on our list, the VonHaus is suitable for spaces up to 30m/2 or 322ft./2 and includes an inbuilt ionizer that can be activated when needed.
The 4 stage filtration system does an excellent job of removing pollutants and airborne particles. The filters included are as follows: Preliminary Filter, True HEPA Filter, Cold Catalyst Filter and finally a Carbon Activated Filter. If you’re not sure what we mean by these different types of filter, check out our filter guide here!
How loud is it?
When used on the lowest fan speed the VonHaus air purifier emits only 26db which is very quiet. To put this in perspective, the noise in a library or from birds tweeting is around 40db, so you get an idea here of what we’re talking about.
During testing, this was quiet enough for us not to notice whilst we conducted other actives and we could easily let this run in the background for as long as needed. In contrast, however, on the high setting, the noise does become audible. This could interfere with certain activities and we suggest that the high setting is to be used for short periods when maximum filtration is needed. On that basis, the increase in noise is supportable as we wouldn’t be using it all the time.
The VonHaus Air Purifier design might not be to everyone’s taste, although we don’t believe it’s an ugly looking device. It’s an upright unit with fairly straight lines and measures 49 x 36 x 15cm. The gloss black finish gives a premium feel and for the price, we’re not too worried about the aesthetics here as the machine is effective in performing the task it’s designed to do.
There are physical buttons on the front of the device which allow the user to select the fan speed, turn the ioniser on and off and also set the timer function. The timer can be set between 1 and 12 hours which is a great feature if you’re planning on leaving the house or for nighttime use.
There is also a small LCD screen on the front of the device which details the fan speed and whether or not the ioniser is activated or not. A remote control is also included so that you can control the VonHaus air purifier from anywhere in the room.
The VonHaus air purifier is suitable for spaces up to 30m/2 or around 322ft. /2. This is equivalent to a decent size office space, living room or bedroom for example. We tested this air purifier in a room size of roughly 25m/2 and found that it handled that space comfortably. VonHaus also state that this air purifier has an air flow rate of 85m/2 per hour.
Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR)
We could not find a figure for the CADR on the VonHaus website, nor Amazon or other sellers for VonHaus air purifier. We contacted VonHaus in order to obtain the CADR and they responded quickly stating it was 95 m3/hour. If you’re not sure what we mean by the CADR, check out our guide here!
This is a great all round, budget air purifier that will help reduce airborne contaminants and pollution from your home. The additional ioniser helps boost performance.
