Molekule Air Purifier Review
Does their new technology really work?
Molekule Air Purifier
Air Purification System
This is a review of the Molekule air purification system to see if their technology really works when it comes to purifying your home.
This is the Molekule Air Purifier. I’ll cover its features and my personal experience after running it in my own home for a week and a half.
Before we start, I want to note that this is my second air purifier review. But Molekule uses a different and very unique filter, which makes it stand out from its competitors. More on that below!
What is the Molekule Air Purifier and how does it work?
Molekule an award-winning home air purification system. It measures 23 inches high with an 8.25-inch diameter, and weighs 18 lbs. It's thick leather handle makes it easy to move around the house. It can replace the air in a 600 sq. ft. room every hour.
An aluminum cylinder sleekly houses a dual-filtration system. The Pre-Filter captures large particles like dust, pet dander, etc.
The patented PECO-filter captures and destroys the smaller particles, including airborne chemicals (VOCs), bacteria, mold, viruses, and allergens.
The Pre-Filter and PECO-filter need to be replaced every three and six months, respectively. The company provides a subscription service for the filters so you don’t have to worry about keeping track!
Molekule has three settings, all of which are reasonably quiet: Auto, Silent, and Boost. It also boasts efficient power consumption levels (20-85 W (110/220V)).
Molekule also has an easy-to-use app so you can monitor air quality and change settings remotely.
How is it different from other air purifiers?
The Molekule has a couple features that really stand out.
First off, its appearance. This has got to be the sleekest, prettiest, most aesthetically appealing air purifier I’ve ever seen. And trust me, living only 20 miles from Utah’s ongoing forest fires, I’ve done the research. I absolutely love having this in my home.
Secondly, and more importantly, the nanotechnology behind the PECO-Filter. A Pre-Filter is standard among air purifiers, but the PECO is what sets Molekule apart from others in terms of function.
Many air purification systems use a HEPA filter to capture microscopic particles. But multiple sources tell me that HEPAs can’t capture anything smaller than 0.3 micrometers, or microns.
Another big problem with HEPA filters is that all they do is capture dangerous particles. They don’t treat or destroy them. Which means that the contaminants have the potential to multiply and be released back into the air. It’s not uncommon to find mold on used HEPA filters.
The PECO-filter works to actually destroy those particles at a molecular level. This includes mold, allergens, viruses, VOCs, and bacteria.
It’s also good to point out that Molekule doesn’t emit ozone or any other harmful byproducts, as often seen in cheaper, ionizing air purifiers.
My personal experience and take on the Molekule
While a week and a half of use may limit my ability to judge the Molekule’s long-term functionality, so far I’m loving it.
It arrived within a week of ordering and basically required no set up. Make sure not to open the extra filters as Molekule sends you a year’s supply when you receive the system. Almost made that mistake myself!
As I said, I'm a huge fan of its aesthetic. It looks beautiful in our living room. The initial clean took about 50 minutes and now I just let it run on Auto Mode.
My family and I recently moved to Utah and I immediately noticed a negative difference in air quality. The ongoing forest fires have given me a scratchy voice and made me feel constantly groggy.
After running the Molekule for a week and a half I already notice a huge difference and I look forward to seeing what other benefits I may notice down the road.
How much does a Molekule cost?
I’m not going to lie, Molekule is on the pricier side as far as air purifiers go. But there’s a reason for that. The patented PECO-filter has been in development for over two decades, and is one of the only filters I know of that actually destroys air contaminants as opposed to merely capturing them.
The Molekule Air Purifier, with a years supply of filters, costs $799.00. They offer financing plans to help you get started if needed. The filter auto-refills, available by subscription, are $65.00 every six months. Molekule offers a 60-day return policy if you’re not happy with the system (you just have to pay for shipping).
Personally, I feel that no matter what you choose, air purifiers are an investment. So if you’re already going to splurge, why not just invest in something of high quality?
I have used multiple air purifiers in my home and I can tell you that honestly, this is my favorite. I would especially advise those with allergy issues, chemical sensitivities, etc. to consider the Molekule.
Final Thoughts About Molekule Air Purifier
The Molekule Air Purifier, sleekly designed and functionable, is a great addition to any household. Its main feature is the patented PECO-Filter, which doesn’t capture but destroys microparticles. After a week and a half of use I’m already a faithful devotee of the Molekule, and would recommend it to essentially anyone who can afford the investment. My grogginess and scratchy voice are gone, and I feel good about keeping my husband and toddler safe and healthy too.
