Over the past two years, I have noticed smart air monitors morph into smart air monitors and purifiers. They no longer notify you when the air in your home is terrible; they will alert you and clean it. But with this evolution, I also noticed the devices are getting bigger. This poses a problem for homeowners since they have to find a place where the smart air purifier can clean the room while not overpowering objects. One company whose smart air purifier we recently tested came up with a novel idea and turned it into a piece of art to help it blend into the room's decor. Rabbit Air is the manufacturer of these smart air purifiers. See what else we found from testing their A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier these past few weeks.

This state-of-the-art purifier is equipped with next-generation HEPA filtration, ensuring the most effective capture of allergens and pollutants. This smart air monitor and purifier come with several key features, which I have listed below that make it unique:

It traps allergens and particles as small as 0.3 microns with 99.97% efficiency and captures particles less than 0.1 microns at over 99% efficiency. This means it effectively handles common household allergens and pollutants, including:

  • Dust mites
  • Mold & Fungi
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen
  • VOCs
  • Bacteria & particles carrying viruses

Smart Connectivity: Meet the brainiest air purifier yet: the A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. You can monitor air quality and control purification remotely with wireless internet capabilities. Managing your air quality has never been more accessible at home or away. And if you are an Amazon Alexa home, you can enable the Rabbit Air skill in the Alexa app to use voice commands on your A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier.

Advanced Sensors: Equipped with highly sensitive odor and particle sensors, the A3 automatically adjusts its speed to maintain the freshest air quality. These sensors detect the amount of pollutants in your environment and respond accordingly.

Light Sensors: The A3's sensitive light sensor automatically reduces light pollution by dimming to a low-energy sleep mode when the room darkens. As daylight returns or light levels increase, the A3 resumes normal operation.

Its filters can last up to two years with 12-hour daily operation, and the Energy Star-certified air purifier ensures minimal annual energy costs.

How much does the Rabbit Air A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier cost

The Rabbit Air A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier has an MSRP of $749.95 and is available on the company's website and on Amazon. Is this a good price? The Rabbit Air A3 is priced towards the higher end of the marketplace for smart air purifiers. Reliable, lower-cost models range from $100 to $350 per unit and are offered by companies like Levoit, Blueair, and Coway. These budget-friendly options typically lack the advanced 4-stage filtration and ultra-quiet operation that more expensive models offer.

High-end models from brands like Dyson, LG, and Alen Air share some features with the Rabbit Air A3 but are generally more expensive. Considering the advanced filtration system, smart connectivity, and quiet operation of the Rabbit Air A3, its higher price is justified and represents a worthwhile investment.

Performance - How did the Rabbit Air A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier perform during testing?

After testing the Rabbit Air A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier in a normal home for a few weeks, I learned a lot about this smart air purifier. Based on my testing, here are the seven things I liked and two things I didn't like about the A3 smart air purifier:

What I Liked:
  1. Quiet Operation
    • The A3 operates incredibly quietly, making it perfect for any room, including bedrooms. Its near-silent function ensures undisturbed sleep, and the optional nightlight feature is a nice touch.
  2. Effective Filtration
    • The advanced filter system effectively kept the air in the room clean, even during allergy season. We had no issues with pollen, and the A3 maintained a healthy air quality throughout.
  3. Easy Installation
    • The setup was straightforward, with simple instructions. The user interface on top of the A3 provides easy operation, allowing quick checks on air quality, filter status, and mood lighting settings.
  4. Versatile Placement
    • You can mount the A3 on the wall or place it on the floor or a shelf. This flexibility helps in finding the perfect spot for it in any room.
  5. Child Lock Feature
    • The child lock is a fantastic feature, especially since the controls are easily reachable for little children. Thanks to this safety feature, my granddaughter couldn't turn off the air purifier.
  6. Filter Longevity
    • Despite the poor air quality this spring, the A3's filters held up well. With several allergy sufferers in the house, the air purifier kept our indoor air healthy around the clock.
  7. Design
    • The front design of the A3 is a novel idea. It helps the unit blend into the room decor better than many other smart air purifiers, though some might find the design less appealing.

What I Didn’t Like:
  1. Size
    • The unit is quite large, which might be a drawback for apartment dwellers. However, it compensates by effectively cleaning the air over 1,000 square feet of space in normal mode.
  2. Price
    • The A3 is priced on the higher side at $749.95. When compared to the Airthings Renew, which costs $399.99 and offers similar quiet operation and coverage (525 square feet), the A3's cost might seem steep.
  3. Lack of Google Assistant Integration
    • The A3 only supports Amazon Alexa. I would have liked to see compatibility with Google Assistant as well.

My overall impression: The Rabbit Air A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier always maintains healthy air quality. Despite a few drawbacks, its quiet operation, effective filtration, ease of use, and versatile placement options make it a worthwhile investment for clean air in your home.

What Users Like About Rabbit Air A3?

I decided to take a look around to see what users were saying about Rabbit Air's A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. And the findings were not surprising. Users appreciate the Rabbit Air A3 Ultra Quiet Air Purifier's exceptionally quiet operation, making it suitable for bedrooms and quiet spaces. They commend its effective air cleaning capabilities, particularly during allergy season, and its ability to efficiently handle allergens, pollen, and smoke. The user-friendly setup, intuitive interface, and advanced features like Wi-Fi connectivity, air quality monitoring, and filter life indicators are highly valued. Additionally, the purifier's versatile placement options, aesthetically pleasing design, and child lock feature enhance its appeal.

What Users Don't Like About Rabbit Air A3?

Some users find the Rabbit Air A3's large size unsuitable for smaller spaces and are concerned about its high price compared to other models with similar features. The placement of the control panel on the beveled top can be inconvenient, depending on the mounting height. The lack of Google Assistant integration is a drawback for some, and a few users noted that the purifier does not always eliminate odors completely, particularly in smoke-heavy environments. Additionally, there were mixed experiences with customer service, including issues with return policies and inconsistent support, which impacted overall satisfaction.
