HoMedics TotalClean Deluxe AP-T45 HEPA air purifier is the best product if you are looking for an air cleaner and essential oil diffuser combo. This model comes with a multi-stage air cleaning system that removes all airborne pollution found in your home, office or any other place.

A combination of three filters – the pre-filter, HEPA air filter and Activated Carbon filter removes 99.97% of dangerous particles down to 0.3 micron. It means that even the fine particles of dust, pollen, smoke, VOCs and bacteria will be captured and removed from the air.

In addition to the mechanical filtration, the UV-C light provides defense from viruses, bacteria, mold and fungus while the optional ionizer enhances the capturing of airborne particles with its ions.

The HoMedics air purifier has 5-selection speeds: from the whisper quiet Sleep mode to the Turbo mode. the latter is noisy, but it can quickly remove the pollution even in a large room. Or you can simply set the Auto mode on and the unit will automatically adjust the speed based on the number of harmful particles floating in the air.

The package also contains 3 essential oil tray pads. You can use any oil to put in the pads, so this air purifier will not only clean the air but also diffuse an aroma of your choice around the house.

The HoMedics TotalClean Deluxe has also been featured in the “Best Air Purifiers with Ionizer” and “Best UV Light Air Purifiers” nominations, so you can rest assured about its efficiency at removing airborne pollution and freshening the air. I recommend using it in a living room 24/7.

FAQ

Where can I get a combo of humidifier, air purifier and diffuser?

Unfortunately, there is none I am aware of. The best you can get is this humidifier and oil diffuser, but it won’t clean the air. You will still need an air purifier to properly remove airborne impurities.

What’s the difference between an air purifier and diffuser?

An air purifier’s main purpose is to remove particulate matter from the air. This particulate matter may include various dust particles (atmospheric dust, construction dust, etc.), allergens (mostly pollen), hair, smoke (wildfire, tobacco, etc.), odors, VOC, germs, bacteria, chemicals and viruses. As a result, the air is cleaned and it won’t smell any chemicals and such. Go here to know more about air purifiers and how they work.

An essential oil diffuser has another purpose which is to diffuse a scent to fill any space with a pleasant aroma. It can be a useful addition to any air purifier. For example, an air purifier in a bathroom will at first remove the toilet odor and then diffuse the aroma in the air.

Do essential oil diffusers purify the air?

No, they don’t! They simply do not have the means to do so. If you buy an oil diffuser and use it in a room that smells bad, you will end up in a room that smells bad with an oil scent you have bought before.

Can you recommend any essential oil?

They are all the same just with a different scent. Get yourself any you like.

Any recommendation for an essential oil diffuser?
