As far as cleaning goes, I think indoor air quality is an underrated household priority. Open windows and fans certainly help with circulation — but air purifiers guarantee measurable, speedy results. While several air purifiers can get the job done, there’s one clear standout with a resume to show for it: The Coway Airmega AP-1512HH Mighty.

The stylish air purifier won awards in Apartment Therapy’s 2024 Cleaning Awards and 2024 Best List and is applauded by editors for its sleek design and quiet but powerful fan speed. At 18.3 inches by 16.8 inches by 9.6 inches, the device was made to complement any flat surface — floors, counters, and media consoles are all fair game. 

As far as air purifiers go, this one is gorgeous. Available in glossy black and pearly white, it’s minimalistic with the appearance of a sophisticated gadget.

“It’s such a good air purifier!” says Stephanie Nguyen, senior editor, cleaning & organizing. “I have two already — one in the living room and another in the bedroom — and I even want to get one for my office next!”

The Airmega filters 1,748 square feet each hour and responds to environmental conditions. The machine uses a four-stage filtration system: a True HEPA filter, a deodorizing carbon filter, a prefilter, and a bipolar ionizer. The filters collectively eliminate particles of all sizes as well as odorous and potentially harmful gases. 

Further expanding on its smart technology, “eco mode” automatically activates after 30 minutes of clean air circulation, and “auto mode” self-adjusts its speed setting in response to dust. Its vital ionizer targets any ultra-fine particles, such as viruses and bacteria, that may be lingering in the air. 

The air purifier’s top panel neatly displays its main settings: speed, ionizer detection, filter status, time, and air quality. It can be connected to Alexa for a true hands-free cleaning experience. 

The Coway Airmega AP-1512HH Mighty is currently on sale for $179.99 on the company’s website and comes with a filter set that lasts for up to 12 months. Although quality air shouldn’t have to come at a price, you can breathe easy knowing you’ve made a “mighty” investment.
