Enhance Your Living Space with Fresh Air

Staying at home and indoors this last year due to the pandemic has caused me to realize the air in my home isn't as pure as it should be. Sure, I change out the air filters twice a year, but there is so much dust and odor inside and it's terrible for both my cats and me. I have terrible allergies and Brulee (one of my cats) also tends to sneeze a lot. Perhaps, the use of an air purifier would help enhance my home with fresh air so both my cats and myself can breathe a little easier.



I'd always thought about purchasing an air purifier, especially once I was diagnosed with asthma and several allergies including dust mites and mold. I have a best friend who comes to visit several times during the year and she's also allergies to cat dander and we have to take extra care when she visits. Brulee, one of my Persian Cats, tends to have allergies and will sneeze frequently, especially when she's in my home office where there is a lot of papers and dust. 

Okaysou reached out to us a couple of months ago about receiving and reviewing one of their Air Purifiers. Even though this isn't a cat product we'd normally review, it is a product that is needed in our home to better the environment where my cats and I live and where friends come to visit. We received the Okaysou AirMax8L Medical Grade H13 True HEPA Air Purifier to review.

Product Details

The Okaysou AirMax8L air purifier is a multi-use air deodorizer that captures 99.97% of air pollutants like dust, pollen, smoke, pet dander and hair, and household odors as small as 0.25 microns. In addition, this air purifier safely breaks down various harmful gases such as formaldehyde, ammonia, benzene, and VOCs that other 3-stage filters cannot do.

The AirMax8L features an advanced turbine motor with 45 vanes that work together with a creative internal structure and larger air inlet area to take in more air and effectively remove allergens which may help relieve unpleasant symptoms such as a runny nose, congestion, shortness of breath and sneezing. The air purifier is very quiet and you may not even realize it's running unless you look over and see the lights on the top of the machine.

The AirMax8L is perfect for pet owners because it combines 3-stage ultra filtration and 2-stage duo filtration that is designed to capture pet dander and pet hair that can cause breathing problems.

The AirMax8L showcases Touch It And Forget It which was developed with the latest Silenceboost Technology to purify your home with the lowest noise level of 22dB and provides an undisturbed sweet dream. It's compact and and has a modern design that should fit into any d├ęcor. 

The Okaysou AirMax8L presents superior safety by being CE, FCC, ETL, and CARB certified. The purifier is 100% Ozone-free. There is a 5-year warranty plus a lifetime US-based customer support.

The AirMax8L weighs less than 14 pounds with dimensions of 12.9 x 7.1 x 19.4 inches. The controls feature child lock, sleep mode, and a filter replacement indicator. There are 3 speeds for controlling the fan speed. This air purifier is ideal for the living room, kitchen, bedroom, and office.

Personal Review

I was pleasantly surprised how lightweight and slim the Okaysou AirMax8L was when I removed it from the shipping container because it was quite large. There was nothing to put together once it was removed from the box. I had to remove pieces of tape that held the doors to the filters closed and had to remove the plastic wrap from the two filters located inside. The instructions were quite user friendly. The product manual is very easy to understand and I had the air filter running within minutes after removing it from the box.

I have a large great room (combination living room and dining room) with cathedral ceilings. Other than my small home office, this is the room where my cats and I spend the most time, so I decided to put the air purifier in the great room. 

The air purifier is very quiet. I had to look at the top where all of the controls are located to make sure it was running. Truffle and Brulee were very curious about the new item in the living room, but they weren't afraid of it. 

Within a couple of hours, I did notice a difference in the air in the great room. The air felt cleaner and and less heavy. I checked the filter after a couple of days and was amazed at the dust that had collected already. I've only used the air purifier for a few days, so I can't comment on the impact to my allergies yet. To be honest, I would probably need a smaller air purifier in both my bedroom and home office to really tell a difference. I'm looking forward to seeing if this purifier helps my friend with her cat dander allergies when she comes to visit. Truffle and Brulee are comfortable with the air purifier and aren't afraid of it. They were so comfortable with it, they put their faces into the area where the air was blowing out. It appears they like the feel and smell of the cleaner air.

I can honestly say, this air purifier gets a positive review from the cats and me. I do plan of purchasing smaller air purifiers to put in my home office and bedroom. I look forward to seeing what the long-term effects of using this air purifier has on my asthma and allergies.

  13. I'm going to have to check this out. I did try an air purifier once before, but the sound of it running turned me off of using it. Knowing that this runs quietly, it sounds like it would be a great solution!

  14. Although it's not a cat product I think this is perfect timing to get an air filter sent your way. During this time with covid it's more important now than ever to take care of our house and our home environment. The fact that this helps get rid of allergens, pet dander and more is great. Nice review!
