We came away very impressed after our Blueair air purifier reviews. Since we live in Los Angeles where pollution is a major challenge to all residents, the air purifier is a priority home appliance for my family. In fact, me and my husband make sure that each bedroom and the living room has a separate air purifier to protect our kids from allergens, viruses and bacteria. What’s very assuring about Blueair is that they have a patented filtration system called the HEPASilent technology that captures 99.97% of pollutants in the air at 0.1 microns. This is a far cry from the 0.5 microns of contaminants that ordinary air purifiers can capture. In simple terms, the HEPASilent technology has two ways to weaken all kinds of pollutants. One is by charging particles that are smaller than 1 micron so that they will be given negative charges, and in effect, deactivate them. The other is by trapping particles bigger than 1 micron like pollen and dust that are easily captured by filter media fibers.

CADR, Area of Coverage
One of the latest air purifiers developed by Blueair is the Blueair 503. It has an impressive CADR rating of 375 all for smoke, pollen and dust. True enough, this model will not disappoint you with its air cleansing power. We placed it in our bedroom, the outer room closest to the streets as a replacement to our older Blueair 403 air purifier.
403 has a lower CADR specs of only 240 for dust, pollen and smoke. We were also happy with its performance since it eliminated the allergens in the air, giving me and my family comfort while we sleep. We’ve never experienced the regular congestion and allergy attacks especially during the summer season since we purchased 403. It also works quietly even on a speed of three. However, we wanted to have another air purifier with a higher CADR rating for our kids’ bedroom so they’ll have their own.
In just a week of use, we immediately noticed how hardworking the Blueair 503 is. We could breathe deeper and the molds accumulated on the walls were stripped off gradually. More than the ease our kids feel while breathing, the filter content is a concrete evidence that Blueair 503 is the purifier to beat! We saw the dust, pollen, molds even mosquitoes trapped in the filters in just two months of use. That could either be a setback or a positive sign depending on how you look at it.
Replacing or cleaning the filters frequently may be a challenge for some, but for us, it’s a solid proof that we don’t have to worry about air pollutants. Because of its enhanced cleansing power, 503 produces more sound on a higher level than our old 403 but it’s perfect for our kids’ room since it can cover an area of up to 580 sq ft as compared to 403’s area of coverage which is only 365 sq ft. The area of coverage provided by 503 is helpful since we can turn it on at the lowest speed and still remain very effective!
Blueair 203W is what we have in our living room. It also has an impressive CADR rating of 375 for smoke, dust and pollen that is perfect for our dusty living room. We decided to place it there because it consumes a bigger space than the other two since it’s bulkier and bigger at more or less 35 pounds.
