The Pure Company Large Room Air Purifier: Beautiful, Powerful, and Enhanced with Aromatherapy

Before you use the Large Room Air Purifier for the first time, you’ll need to detach the body from the base to remove the plastic bag wrapped around the filters. The base lock, on the back bottom of the air purifier, slides to the right to unlock and to the left to lock. Once you’ve removed the plastic and set the filters back on the base, you can put the body of the air purifier back on and lock things down.

With a distinctive new way to achieve fresh, clean air, our Large Room Air Purifier is a whisper-quiet solution for your home’s impurities. First, an odor-killing Activated Carbon Pre-Filter captures pollen, allergens, pet dander and dust. Next, a True HEPA Filter removes invisible pollutants and bacteria as small as 0.3 microns. Choose from our 100% Pure Essential Oils to enhance the environment in any room.

If clean air isn’t enough for you, and you want to make your room smell amazing (and promote all those happy feelings you get when smelling something comforting or energizing), you can also opt to put a few drops of 100% pure essential oil on the replaceable aromatherapy pad. You can order various blended and single-scent essential oils from The Pure Company, too. I’ve talked about The Pure Company’s 100% pure essential oils in a previous review; I have the Custom Blend Set, and each of them smells lovely, and they can really set the proper tone for your space.

On Automatic Mode and Level 1, the Large Room Air Purifier is incredibly silent while pumping out clean air. Levels 2 through 4 get progressively louder, but up to Level 3, they are never more than what I’d consider acceptable white noise levels for working or sleeping; up to Level 3, you won’t have to turn your television volume up a notch, if you get what I mean.

Level 4 is quite a bit louder, so you might want to save that for emergencies — like when your dog passes gas, you’ve burnt popcorn, or granddad “forgets” he’s not allowed to smoke in your home and lights up a stogie in the family room. These things happen, as annoying as they may be, but now you can squash their odors quickly.

If the marshmallow white is too plain or simply doesn’t appeal to you, or if you think it won’t look right with your decor, The Pure Company also sells $58 designer wraps which will dramatically change the look of your Large Room Air Purifier.

Here’s how you install them.

Thinking out loud here: If a $58 wrap doesn’t appeal to you, and you are a bit artistic, I think that you could get away with painting or drawing on the outside of the air purifier yourself. As long as you keep any paint or markers away from the air quality sensors on the back, of course. All that white looks like a canvas just begging to be decorated and personalized if you want something wilder than a solid color or marble effect, right? The Pure Company doesn’t mention this or recommend it, and it’s likely that would void any warranties, though, so bear that in mind if you decide to go for it.

The main quibble that I have regarding the air purifier, beyond its price, is that it isn’t smart. There is no app attached to it, so you can’t check air-quality levels in your home when you are away, and you can’t control it with a smart home assistant like Alexa, Siri, or Google Home. This probably won’t matter to most people, but it seems like a major oversight on a ~$400 air purifier in 2018 to me.

The Pure Company Large Room Air Purifier is quiet, and it really is a powerhouse; it gets rid of odors quickly, maintains a healthier breathing environment by controlling dust and other funk floating in the air, and its ability to freshen the clean released air with a hint of aromatherapy oil on a replaceable and dedicated filter pad is a welcome bonus. This is one of the best-looking air purifiers I’ve seen or reviewed, and it’s got a permanent spot in my office now.

The Pure Company Large Room Air Purifier retails for $399, and it is available directly from the manufacturer. You can also order designer wraps for $58 each.

What I Like: Attractive design that can be personalized with designer wraps; Extremely quiet to operate up to levels 3 and 4; Air quality light ring indicates cleaning modes and can be dimmed or turned off for less light pollution at night or while sleeping; A dedicated, replaceable aromatherapy filter pad allows you to add essential oils for delightfully flavoring the clean air produced by the air purifier

What Needs Improvement: It’s expensive; No app, which means no remote control by smartphone or smart home integration
