When it comes to personal health and hygiene, our homes are the one place that we have full control of. While we do our best to keep our space sanitary, an often overlooked aspect of home hygiene is the air quality. Cigarette smoke, pet dander, pollen, volatile organic compounds, bacteria and viruses are just some of the things that can drastically reduce air quality. To solve the issue, a home air purifier is an excellent solution. Not sure which one is best for your needs? Here are some of our top picks for air purifiers in Singapore, which also come in a range of sizes and feature some pretty sleek designs!
Aurabeat AG+ NSP-X2
Now, more than ever before, we’re aware of the dangers of harmful airborne transmissions such as COVID-19, general viruses, mould, smoke and bacteria. Breathing in clean air has never been so front of mind or important. If you’re looking for air purifiers in Singapore that are backed by lab tests, the Aurabeat AG+ air purifiers are a great option. These devices can destroy more than 99.9 percent of COVID-19 viruses (proven by MRI Global, an independent US virology lab) and are registered medical-grade devices. Aurabeat’s silver ion filter effectively eliminates viruses and other airborne nasties, significantly reducing the risk of secondary air transmission. The NSP-X2 model starts at $1,099.
Other options for air purifiers in Singapore
#1 Initial Hextio
The Hextio air purifier is part of Initial’s Viruskiller range. Like its larger counterparts, it utilises a two-stage system to trap indoor air pollution and kill airborne viruses. The first stage features a carbon and HEPA filter that traps ultrafine particles, allergens and VOCs. While many air purifiers stop here, the Hextio’s second stage features a UV light chamber that kills bacteria, mould and fungi. The units have also been tested by independent labs that have verified that the air purifier is able to kill 99.999% of viruses in a single pass.
#2 Blueair HealthProtect
Blueair’s HealthProtect range of air purifiers are another option because of the rich suite of features on offer. These include auto-activation when air conditions are optimal for germ growth, precise omni-direction airflow that reaches every corner of the room and easy-to-clean pre-filters. It’s also whisper quiet — 30 dB at its lowest setting!
#3 Samsung Smart Air Purifier
Late last year, Samsung released its new range of Smart Air Purifiers in Singapore. A key benefit of the range is its smartphone integration. This makes it easy to control and monitor the air in your home remotely. The air purifiers are available in two sizes, covering 90sqm and 60sqm, making it ideal for a range of homes.

Wondering which air purifier is the best for plug-and play usage? The RUHENS’ Classic Air Purifier is ready to go right out of the box.
