The Atmosphere air purifier is equipped with both a HEPA filter and a pre-filter system, for twice the air purification power. This model is designed to remove pet dander, pet hair, fur, mold, dust, dust mites, and other allergens.

Our Verdict: The Atmosphere comes with both a HEPA and carbon filter. This air purifier will remove allergens and other contaminants from the air while eliminating odor, making this model a good buy for pet owners. This model offers decent coverage, but is a better choice for the buyer in search of a model for use in a bedroom or home office.
Keep reading to learn how the Atmosphere works and what you can expect in terms of features, coverage, and overall quality.
Overview and Features
This HEPA air purifier is a total powerhouse. While it’s not designed for large room use, it works well in smaller spaces such as home offices, kitchens, and bedrooms. It offers decent coverage for an air purifier in this price range and comes equipped with a two-stage filtration process that ensures a higher percentage of contaminants are removed from the environment.
The Atmosphere utilizes a HEPA filtration system and a carbon filter. The HEPA filter will remove up to ninety-nine percent of contaminants, while the carbon filtration helps to neutralize the air, eliminating odors.
The air purifier’s IntelliSense Technology allows users to closely monitor the room air quality. Additionally, when the air purifier is set to automatic mode, the machine will instantly switch on, starting an air purification cycle, if the built-in sensor detects a drop in air quality.
If you want to quickly purify the air and get rid of unwanted odors, you can take advantage of the machine’s turbo feature. This feature kicks the air purification process into overdrive, allowing the machine to quickly remove contaminants and odors from the air.
This model offers three hundred and ninety square feet of coverage, making it perfect for use in your bedroom, home office, kitchen, or another smaller room in the home. If you want to use this model in a larger room, we recommend purchasing two of these air purifiers for a more efficient air purification process.
For experienced air purifier users, a major complaint is the amount of noise emitted from a standard air purifier. If you’re a light sleeper, then this can be a major problem. Fortunately, this model features the unique Pureflow system. The Pureflow system eliminates excessive fan noise by switching on only when poor air quality has been detected.
The HEPA air filter should be replaced every six months. The carbon filtration will need to be replaced every three months. Of course, in homes with pets you may need to replace the filters more often.
This model is Energy Star rated, working to keep your energy bills down, even if you leave the air purifier running around the clock. The amount of energy it uses is comparable to a low wattage lightbulb.
The quiet-running air purifier works to not only remove allergens and other irritants from the air, but the carbon filtration helps to also eliminate odors. The automatic mode allows the machine to closely monitor the room air quality and switch on the purification process if it detects any negative changes in air quality. Overall, the purifier covers a better than average amount of space, however, it’s not suitable for use in larger rooms.
Is This Air Purifier Commercial Grade?
No. The Oransi EJ120 Hepa Air Purifier with Carbon Filter is a commercial grade air purifier and one of the Atmosphere’s top competing models. However, unlike the Atmosphere, with many models of commercial-grade air purifiers, you will not provide a clear answer in terms of coverage. Commercial grade models are often used in hospitals, and businesses, however, they feature the same type of air purification technology that models designed for home use do.
What Does the Coverage Rating Matter?
The coverage rating refers to the amount of space the air purifier can handle. If you use an air purifier for a bigger space than what it’s rated for, this means the air will not be completely purified. You will also cause the machine to work much harder than it has to, which can negatively impact the machine’s future performance. This is especially true for models that come equipped with an automatic air quality mode like the Atmosphere. If you want your air purifier to work as efficiently as it should, then you must pay close attention to the coverage rating. If you need to use an air purifier for a larger space in the home, then you may need to purchase more than one air purifier.

Does the Atmosphere use UV-C light?
No, it doesn’t. Not many air purifiers do, although models with this feature do offer some advantages. However, if you want to remove larger particles from the air such as pet dander and pet hair, then a model equipped with a HEPA air filtration system is preferred.
