The climatic complex Boneco H680 deserves the undisputed leadership in the rating, showing the best results in terms of humidification and ergonomics. A 10-liter liquid tank is built inside its body, designed for 10 hours of continuous moisture support at 1000 milliliters of hourly consumption. Thanks to such conditions, it can easily serve premises up to 100 square meters, and is more suitable for placement in offices and public buildings than houses and apartments.
In terms of air purification performance, the indicators are much more modest: 4 barriers provide ideal dust removal, but only 190 cubic meters of air for each hour of operation. The reason for this is the low power of 30 watts. However, the disadvantage is compensated by a powerful ionizer and the presence of a disinfecting rod with silver ions in the water. There was a place here for a flavoring agent, a timer with a 12-hour mode, and a whole array of working sensors that take parameters from the environment.
- a huge water tank in the washing system;
- the presence of an air flavoring agent;
- high performance of the evaporator;
- functional display and timer;
- high-quality climate control over a large area;
- nice design.
- not found.
The difference between Panasonic F-VK655 and Sharp KC-G61RW / RH lies in the level of psychological trust: all other things being equal, users are more inclined to buy the former than the latter. Moreover, they are not afraid of either the high price or the decrease in key characteristics. True, the latter is due to the power cut to 57 watts, and does not at all affect the quality of humidification / cleaning.
So, the consumption of water in Panasonic F-VK655 is 500 milliliters per hour, and when operating at maximum performance, it must be refilled every 240 minutes. Air purification takes place in 4 stages: after passing through the circuit of preliminary purification barriers, HEPA-, water and coal. The productivity is 330 cubic meters per hour. According to the standard of the premium segment, the model has an ionizer, light and motion sensors, a convenient touchscreen display and a remote control.
- complex air purification from dust: recommended for allergy sufferers and asthmatics;
- the presence of an ionizer;
- a motion and light sensor that adjusts the backlight level for a comfortable perception by the user.
- high price.
Sharp KC-G61RW / RH
The third place in the rating goes to the climatic complex with an abundance of filters for purifying air masses. In fact, 4 barriers are installed in it at once: water, preliminary treatment, coal and HEPA- with fine filtration of fine dust. There is a cleanliness control sensor that invariably triggers when the dust in the air is exceeded, starting the fans at full capacity. Considering that the blowing and injection system is made thoroughly (large fans), the noise sometimes reaches 72 decibels, which is quite loud even during the day.
As for the humidification system, the Sharp KC-G61RW / RH has a 3-liter reservoir, the volume of liquid in which is enough for 240 minutes of full-time operation at a flow rate of 630 milliliters per hour. Also note the presence of an ionizer, motion sensor, temperature and lighting.
- the presence of wheels to facilitate transportation;
- 4-factor filtration system;
- an abundance of working sensors;
- well functioning ionizer.
- high price;
- volume at maximum performance reaches 72 dB.
One step away from the leaders, another climatic complex from Philips stopped, sharpened for the provision of comprehensive control over conditions in rooms up to 80 square meters. The hourly consumption of water in it is 600 milliliters, and this is enough for continuous and efficient work for 6-9 hours.
Air purification performance in Philips AC3821 is 310 cubic meters. The results of an independent expert review confirm this. A bonus for those who especially love cleanliness around is that the device contains a huge number of indicators, including an allergen sensor and a color analyzer of environmental pollution. There is a very important function of locking the display from children, as well as a timer with the ability to set the program for 9 hours in advance.
- well moisturizes and cleans the air around;
- has a built-in allergen tester;
- very nice appearance and comfortable lighting;
- the presence of a timer and blocking of buttons from children;
- perfectly eliminates odors.
- high price.
This climatic complex is a rather interesting variation on the theme of multifunctionality. The main emphasis here is on the disinfection of air masses, since the design of the model includes an ionizer, an ultraviolet lamp, and even a demineralizing cartridge for water, which prevents mineral salts from forming solid stable compounds. The latter is necessary in order to ensure the durability of the water system of the device.
In terms of humidification, ATMOS Maxi-550 cannot boast of such an integrated approach. The built-in water tank holds only 1.7 liters of water, and its consumption at maximum performance does not exceed 40 milliliters per hour. The final chord is that for all its spaciousness, the device is bulky and heavy (over 10 kilograms), and the cost is fully consistent with the premium segment.
- the presence of an ionizer and a UV lamp;
- demineralizing cartridge inside the water system;
- low noise level during operation;
- the presence of a timer and remote control.
- high price;
- bulky and heavy;
- very small water tank and unproductive pump (at 95 watts of power consumption).
Stadler Form Robert Original R-007 / R-008
Compared to the closest representatives of the rating, the climate complex Stadler Form Robert Original R-007 / R-008 has a lower price and high technical characteristics. With a power of 30 watts, this model (according to manufacturers) is able to control the climate in rooms up to 80 square meters. The peak hourly water consumption is 550 milliliters.
Most likely, such a high value of the size of the serviced room is associated with the capacity of the treatment system: the CADR capacity is 620 cubic meters per hour. This is achieved due to a powerful blower and the presence of a proprietary ANTICALC A-112 filter. The place of the ionizer was taken by a fragrance with Swiss aroma oil RELAX A-121 – a kind of pleasant consumable when buying, which costs a lot of money in retail.
- automatic cleaning;
- the presence of a flavoring agent;
- perfectly moisturizes and removes dust from the room;
- not the highest price in the segment.
- noisy complex (50 dB and above);
- lack of a remote control included.
The basis of this climatic complex is also the preventive care of the amount of dust, however, rather serious attention is paid to humidification. With water and pre-filters, the CADR capacity is 300 cubic meters per hour. Together with them, an air purity control system is installed.
The intensity of humidification in the Hitachi EP-A5000 is 520 milliliters of evaporated water per hour. The indicator is not bad, however, if there is a tank with a volume of only 2.5 liters, the installation throws up problems with the frequency of water replenishment. Other features of the installation include a timer with a program for 4 hours ahead, as well as a remote control, thanks to which the model is easy to operate at night.
- high build quality;
- low noise level;
- responsive air pollution sensor;
- ease of maintenance.
- high price;
- lack of touch control display.
Climate complex of the premium segment, aimed at intensive removal of coarse and fine dust from air masses. Despite its large dimensions and weight of 11 kilograms, it has a small tank with a capacity of 4 liters. With a water flow rate of 600 milliliters per hour, this volume is hardly enough for 400 minutes of continuous work.
However, humidification in the Daikin MCK75JVM-K can be viewed as a side function. The presence of photocatalytic and electrostatic filters is made from a model of a real dust eliminator in rooms of 40-50 squares: the air cleaning performance according to CADR is an impressive 450 cubic meters. There is an ionizer, a timer, a fan rotation regulator … and nothing else of the useful functions. And manufacturers are asking for more than 50 thousand rubles.
- powerful dust absorption system;
- high quality ionizer;
- provides acceptable moisture;
- has a remote control.
- the volume of work can exceed 50 dB;
- very high price.
Panasonic F-VXL40 is quoted among consumers as a premium climate system. It honestly serves areas up to 30 square meters, while consuming up to 52 watts of energy. It has a modest (by premium standards) 1.6-liter reservoir, which needs to be refilled every 240 minutes when operating at maximum settings.
Surely you are thinking that if the Panasonic F-VXL40 is not so high in humidification, then the manufacturers have probably focused on cleaning functions. But no: the CADR capacity is only 240 cubic meters per hour, and the filtration system has only standard HEPA and water filters. An ionization unit is also available, but it is not entirely clear which working fluid is used in it. But most importantly, this is the only (so far) representative of the rating in which the child protection function is implemented. Whether it is worth overpaying for this is up to you, but the model corresponds to a high level of quality in performing the main functions.
- fairly compact setup for premium;
- nice case design;
- the presence of a function for locking the display from children;
- acceptable quality of ambient air purification and humidification.
- high price;
- scarcity of technical capabilities;
- very small liquid tank.
The second representative of Winia in the ranking, which focuses on humidifying the ambient air and a little help in cleaning it from dust. The internal tank can hold up to 9 liters of liquid and provide a continuous operation time of the unit for 13 hours. Despite its low power (24 watts), it is capable of evaporating up to 700 milliliters of water per hour, thereby stabilizing humidity in an area of up to 50 square meters.
The Winia AWX-70 ionizer uses a special biofilter with silvered balls as a working medium. In addition to it, the system of the climate complex contains a water and HEPA filter, which purify up to 150 cubic meters of air per hour. The result is not the best, but reliable. Also, the model has built-in indicators (switching on, lack of liquid, pollution and moisture), a timer and backlight
- sufficiently accurate hygrometer in the humidity tracking system;
- the most honest cleaning of air masses from dust;
- high-quality ionization;
- high productivity and 9 liters of contained water;
- low noise level.
- high price.
SENDO Air 90
One step away from the top ten, the SENDO Air 90 climatic complex, capable of serving premises with an area of 50 square meters, stopped. In fact, its main drawback is very similar to the model from Hisense – it is a small water tank with a capacity of only 2 liters. According to various sources, the maximum flow rate here is 550 milliliters per hour. Thus, water filling will have to be done here more often than every 240 minutes.
Despite the controversial humidification function, the SENDO Air 90 does an excellent job of cleaning the air thanks to a whole range of installed cleaning barriers. In addition to standard HEPA filter elements, carbon, photocatalytic and water filters are installed here. According to the developers' statistics, the CADR capacity is 320 cubic meters per hour, which is a very good result and allows even allergy sufferers to use the unit.
- a whole set of filters included;
- the presence of a remote control;
- high-quality assembly;
- ease of use.
- high noise level: 57 dB;
- small water tank;
- high price.
Hisense AE-33R4BNS / AE-33R4BFS
Together with Hisense AE-33R4BNS / AE-33R4BFS and Sharp KC-F31R in the ranking, there is a transition from climate control units for “pseudo purification” of air to models that really have this function. This complex is designed to service areas up to 40 square meters, and in accordance with this, the power consumption is as much as 48 watts. The built-in reservoir holds only 2 liters of water, and at maximum performance settings it consumes 500 milliliters per hour.
The climatic complex Hisense AE-33R4BNS / AE-33R4BFS has a pre-cleaning filter element and a special HEPA filter, thanks to which the air purification capacity reaches 380 cubic meters per hour. There is no ionizer here, but control is realized using the remote control. It is recommended to install the Climate Complex only on the floor, since its weight is as much as 10.2 kilograms, and its dimensions can take up the useful space of a table or other household object.
- pleasant appearance;
- removes fine dust and fights odors;
- the presence of a remote control;
- provides excellent room humidification.
- bulky and heavy complex with a very small reservoir for water;
- noisy when operating at maximum fan speed.
The climatic complex is a rather odious version of the installation, which does not differ in outstanding characteristics, but at the same time squeezes the maximum out of what is available. With an energy consumption of 27 watts, it efficiently processes rooms up to 27 square meters, which suggests that either the matter is in this particular model, or everyone else (who claims large areas) is blatantly lying.
The volume of the water tank in the Sharp KC-F31R is 1.8 liters, and the maximum evaporation capacity does not exceed 350 milliliters per hour. However, the model also has one very interesting feature: in addition to the ionizer (which really works, and does not “pretend”), special pre-filters and HEPA- filters are installed here, which are responsible for removing the smallest particles of dust from the air. According to the device's passport, the CADR air mass cleaning performance is 180 cubic meters, and this explains the superiority of the Sharp KC-F31R over its opponents.
- the presence of a high-quality ionizer;
- installation of HEPA filters and pre-filters is provided;
- nice design;
- excellent climate control in confined spaces;
- despite the declared 48 dB of noise, it is quieter than competitors.
- heavy weight (7.2 kg);
- requires frequent water replenishment due to the small reservoir.
Electrolux EHAW 7510D / 7515D / 7525D
Stylish and multifunctional air conditioning unit from Electrolux, providing humidification and maintaining the air frequency in an area of up to 50 sq. m. The duration of work without pauses can reach 14 hours with a maximum productivity of 500 milliliters of evaporated water per hour. By simple mathematical operations, we find that the volume of the model's internal tank is 7 liters.
In the basic version, the Electrolux EHAW 7510D / 7515D / 7525D does not have an ionizer. That is, a special place is allocated for it, but without ionizing silver rods, which are purchased as a separate option, nothing will work. But there is a convenient function of reminding you to clean the appliance, as well as a permit for washing discs in a dishwasher.
- very effective design;
- ease of use;
- convenient control display;
- capacious reservoir and high performance;
- function of dimming the display depending on the light.
- quite high price;
- overall dimensions and weight.
One line higher is the climatic complex with more pronounced technical characteristics, but designed to service premises up to 30 square meters. The volume of its water tank is 7 liters – despite the fact that the overall dimensions hardly differ from the AIC S040. The hourly consumption at maximum settings is 450 milliliters, and this is one of the highest rates in the rating at the moment.
Among other features of the climatic complex Winia AWI-40, we can highlight the presence of an air ionizer with an installed silver Bio-Silver Stone filter, as well as a special antibacterial treatment of the working discs. There is a basic set of indicators (on, low water level and humidity level), as well as a timer. The disadvantage of the climatic complex is the high noise level, which makes it difficult to fully use it at night.
- spacious water tank;
- high-quality air ionization;
- ease of maintenance;
- high performance.
- 36 dB of volume during operation;
- the air humidity sensor is not configured correctly.
A humidifier and air purifier of the middle price segment, designed to create climatic conditions for 40 squares. It consumes standard 15 watts from the network, which is effectively spent on overclocking the evaporator and related useful functions. The hourly consumption of water in it is 400 milliliters, while the total volume of the tank does not exceed 6 liters.
As in many mid-price climatic complexes, the AIC S040 has an air ionizer, an evaporation rate adjustment and a convenient timer with the ability to set the operating time 1-8 hours in advance. The device is controlled using a digital display, and a special backlight is installed on the case for convenience and visual beauty. The climatic complex weighs a lot (6 kilograms), which is why it is recommended to be placed only on the floor.
- pleasant appearance and backlighting;
- air ionizer;
- capacious tank for water;
- relatively small price for the available functionality.
- high noise level: 35 dB;
- it is inconvenient to clean the filters.
Ballu AW-320 / AW-325
Dimensional climatic complex made in China, designed to work in rooms up to 50 square meters. It has a spacious water reservoir of 5.7 liters, and at maximum fan-evaporator rotation settings it can consume up to 300 milliliters of water per hour. The humidity level is maintained in the range from 40 to 75%.
Instead of an air ionizer, manufacturers decided to equip the Ballu AW-320 / AW-325 with a scent function. Also, the system of the complex had a built-in mode for cleaning the dampening discs, and a silver DSS disinfecting rod for water was installed in the tank. The operation of the climatic complex is controlled using an electronic display without an adjustable timer. The passport noise level is 25 decibels, but in reality this figure is 50% higher.
- relatively inexpensive humidifier model;
- built-in air aromatization function;
- the presence of a cleaner for dampening discs and a silver disinfectant rod;
- inexpensive service in case of breakdown.
- high noise level;
- built-in hygrometer overstates the readings
- effective serviced area is 2 times less than the declared one.
This air conditioner is one of the compact models designed to provide comfortable conditions in small living areas. With a power consumption of 15 watts, it can effectively humidify and ionize indoor air up to 20 square meters. The reason for this lies in the small portioned water consumption per hour of operation: only 150 milliliters with a total volume of the water reservoir of 2.2 liters.
An important advantage of the REDMOND RAW-3501 over its competitors is the control of the ambient air purity. It works in tandem with an ionizer and a fan speed controller. There is a convenient timer that allows you to program the operating time 8 hours in advance. The noise level during air heating and steam discharge is no more than 25 decibels, and for the convenience of the user, a backlight is installed on the sink body.
- low noise level;
- night mode of operation;
- air ionizer;
- built-in indoor air quality control;
- compact and pleasant model.
- small serviced area;
- increased price.
Philips HU4813 / 11
Despite its compact overall dimensions, this air conditioning unit is capable of serving rooms up to 44 sq. m. The volume of the water tank in it is only 2 liters, and the evaporation rate can reach 300 milliliters per hour, which leads to the need to replenish the reservoir every 400 minutes. However, apart from the noise level of 34 decibels, this feature is the only drawback of the model.
The Philips HU4813 / 11 climate complex is equipped with a hygrostat, an antibacterial cartridge and a water evaporation regulator, which allows you to maintain the humidity in the house at 40-60%. There is no ionizer, but the electronic display has a special timer, by which you can set the on and off times, which is very convenient when creating a special microclimate in four walls.
- high efficiency of action;
- pleasant appearance;
- the possibility of placing on the floor and on the table;
- the presence of an antibacterial cartridge in the water tank.
- increased noise level;
