Ventilating your home is one way of eliminating particles, excessive water vapor, and cooking odors from your home. However, this method is limited by contaminants from outdoors and weather conditions.
Research shows that indoor air is polluted by cooking odors, lint, pet fur, pet dander, dust, fine dust, and dust mite debris. Other pollutants include VOCs, formaldehyde, airborne bacteria, allergens, and viruses. Ventilating your home results in the introduction of car exhaust gases, smoke from wildfires, and cigarette smoke. Since ventilating your home is not sufficient, you need to introduce quality air cleaners.
A good example is the Hokeki Air Purifier. This smart purifier comes in a modern, sleek design, has easy to use controls, and a powerful filtration system. Want to know more about the Hokeki Air Purifier.

In-depth Review of Hokeki Air Purifier:
Breathing in clean air is not only essential to your health but that of your family and pets as well. Your home is likely inundated with particles such as allergens, dust, lint, pet dander, and microorganisms. The particles have an impact on your respiratory system and overall health. This is true if you or your family members have allergies. To protect your family, Hokeki True HEPA smart air purifier might be a better choice.
Here are its features.
3-in-1 Filtration System
A total of 10,000 liters of air enter our lungs each day. Of these, 420 liters of oxygen needed for human function and survival. To ensure you and your family continue breathing in clean, fresh air while indoors, you need a purifier with a powerful filtration system.
Lucky for you, the Hokeki Air Purifier has a 3 stage filtration system. The first stage of the filtration system is the anti-bacterial pre-filter. Made of nylon, the pre-filter captures big pollutants such as dust, hair, lint, and fibers.
The second stage of the filtration system is the True HEPA filter. A True HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles in the air as small as 0.3 microns. Such particles include allergens, fine dust, and pet dander.
You need to know that the multi-care filter is actually a 3M melt blown filter made in the US. It features deep dust holding technology and electret adsorption technology. As such, the filter is capable of achieving low resistance and high-efficiency filtering.
The last stage of the filtration system is the activated carbon filter. Made of granular carbon, it helps to remove odors, formaldehyde, VOCs, and harmful gases. Thanks to the powerful filtration system, the air purifier has a CADR of 130 CFM.
It can clean up to 200 square feet of space in just 12 minutes or five times in an hour. This makes the air purifier perfect for living rooms, kitchen, bedrooms, baby nursery, and office.
To clean dust and other particles from the net pre-filter, use a vacuum. We recommend doing so at least twice a month.
You need to replace the filters after 6 to 8 months of use. Check the filter indicator light. If it turns red, it’s time to replace the used filters with new, genuine filters from Hokeki. Remember to follow the instructions in the owner’s manual.
Air Quality Monitor
The Hokeki Air Purifier has a built-in air quality sensor. The sensor detects air quality when operational. They detect VOCs, odors, and gases. The air quality monitor continuously monitors the air for pollutants. If the sensors detect the presence of contaminants in the air, it will display the results.
The air purifier features a unique AQ system that displays air quality levels. Blue means the air quality is excellent, green is good, orange is fair, and red is bad.
This is a three-speed air purifier. You can select the low, medium, or high speed. Also, it has an auto mode that operates based on ambient air quality. If the air quality level displays an orange or red light indicator, it will set the purifier to the highest speed. By doing so, the purifier will draw in more air via the air intake.
It will clean the air by trapping pollutants then distribute clean, fresh air in the room.
The Hokeki Air Purifier has a cylindrical body with a 360-degree air intake and an outlet at the unit’s top. Thanks to the bottom to top airflow concept, the unit draws unfiltered air, cleans it, and distributes fresh air in the room.
The air purifier has the following dimensions: 7.5 by 17.16 inches and weighs 8.15 pounds. It’s lightweight, and you can carry it from room to room. The manufacturer has made it easier for you by fitting the unit with a carry handle.
Located on top of the unit, it allows you to carry the unit from room to room. If you have one unit, you can place it in a room where you spend most of your time. Just remember not to obstruct the airflow by blocking the air intake and outlet.
Besides the carry handle, we also liked the touch controls. With a simple touch, you can adjust the purifier’s settings. The capacitive touch control panel is easy to clean too. Available touch controls include:
- Operating modes (3 fan speeds, auto, and sleep mode)
- Timer (2H, 4H, 8H)
- Check filter indicator
- Air quality indicator LED switch
- Power switch
The timer function allows you to choose one of the three timer options. This function runs the purifier for the set time and turns it off when done. This saves you money and energy. Just remember to keep the windows and doors closed when running the purifier.
You need to know that the timer supports memory function. This means the purifier will remember the programmed settings even when turned off.
One reason why the Hokeki Air Purifier is the most sought after home appliance is because it runs whisper quiet. In sleep mode, the air purifier has a sound level of 23 dB. The sound level is slightly higher than the noise made by a mosquito at 20dB.
At the highest fan speed, the air purifier has a sound level of 52dB. While this is higher than the average home noise at 25dB, it’s less than a normal conversation at 60dB. Even at the highest speed, the good news is the sound level of the purifier is not harmful. Experts consider noise above 85dB to be dangerous.
The unit consumes 32W when running at the highest speed. If you run the purifier on top speed for 24 hours, it will cost 9 cents a day (at 12cents/kWh rate) and $2.8 a month. This tells you that the purifier is energy efficient and will save you money and health all year long.
