Q: I'm looking at the Amway Atmosphere Air Purifier and wonder how it compares to other brands?
A: Hi Jim. Way back in 1981 (college) I was briefly involved in Amway - and given my interest in air purifiers I tried to sell the Amway model, although the Amway one I sold wasn't called the Amway Atmosphere Air Purifier at that time if my memory serves me. The cost of this model runs from over $859.99 list, $659 for several I saw elsewhere online.
Also - Replacement filters are HEPA = $79.40 - $94.15 , Carbon = $129.99 - $145.99. (That's expensive!)
After reading this review, if you'd like a comparison go to the Comparison Chart via the left or right menu. I have read all the specs on the Amway (see below) but I have not had my hands on one to take it apart or do a video review of it. I am going by specs, price and online reviews in this review.
That's my first impression. More on the filtration and specs below.
Stage 1 HEPA - best for allergies as it removes dust, pollen and dander.
Stage 2 Carbon - absorbs odor, and gases.
Stage 3 Pre-filter - Polypropolene washable - extends the life of the HEPA by grabbing dust and hair (similar to a screen door).
1 - Uses HEPA - best for allergies
2 - Uses Carbon - for odor and gases
3 - Has a remote, an integrated particle sensor, and electronic monitor which indicates when to replace the filters
1 - A bit pricey for only 390 sq. ft.
2 - Could use UV or something for germ, bacteria, virus elimination
3 - WOW!!! - Replacement filters are $79 for the HEPA, $145 for the Carbon.
4 - Very noisy on High
