There are tons of top-notch air purifiers on the market right now, but if you’re looking for one that’s affordable, this Amazon find, which combines four popular products into one, offers one of the best values.
Amazon reviewers rave about GermGuardian’s four-in-one air purifier (the AC4825 model), which also functions as an odor reducer, germ-eliminating UV light sanitizer, and white noise machine. The $90 gadget is one of the retailer’s best-selling air purifiers overall , which is pretty impressive considering there are over 1,000 featured in its assortment. It’s also Amazon’s most-reviewed air purifier, earning over 14,000 five-star ratings.

While other options can cost hundreds of dollars, this multipurpose machine is going for under $100. The air purifier features a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter that removes germs and allergens, like dust, pollen, mold, and pet dander from your home. What’s more, it also releases a soothing white noise sound, removes stinky odors with its charcoal filter, and kills germs and viruses (like influenza) with its built-in UV-C light.
Its HEPA filter, which cleans the air four times every hour, is ideal for those with allergies and asthma. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these top-of-the-line filters remove at least 99.7 percent of airborne allergens. This lightweight option is easy to move around your home, too, allowing you to set it up wherever you’re spending the majority of your time.
Reviewers love its soothing sleep mode and quiet fan, and find it especially helpful for reducing odors and improving indoor air quality in homes with pets. Owners call it a “game-changer” and “miracle worker,” and often come back to buy a few more for their house.
“We have five dogs and it is nearly impossible to keep dust out of the house,” one reviewer wrote. “For the first few days, we had to keep cleaning the filter out because it was working so well. I own three of these now! And the white noise helps me sleep—the sound is so relaxing to me.”
“This changed my life as an allergy and asthma sufferer,” another reviewer wrote. “I could instantly feel the difference. I sleep more soundly, my allergies are better, my nose isn’t constantly running, and the room smells clean and fresh—best purchase of the year!”
Given increased efforts to maintain a clean and healthy household this year, this versatile purifier and germ eliminator is just the thing to add to your home to lighten your workload. And since the GermGuardian machine and its replacement filters, which are just $3.75 a piece , come with free shipping for Prime members (or anyone who signs up for a free 30-day trial ), you can have it delivered and put it to work in no time.
