We live on a ranch in New Mexico and our owners don't like all the dust we all bring in the house after playing outside. So we told them about your Air Purifiers and they bought the Blue Air 503. It has done a great job and we get to stay in the living room now. Thank you for a great product.

Customer Q & A

Q1: Will this ionizer help my son with his moderate to severe pet cat dander allergies and as asthma? We have an open floor plan downstairs.

A: Yes. The filtration is excellent for things like animal dander and other particles that can aggravate asthma. The coverage area will vary depending on the total size of the space and the number or air exchanges per hour you're looking to attain, but overall Blueair models like the 503 have good air circulation. Hope that helps!

Q2: I've had a Blueair 501 since 2002 and it's been great. The amount of dust & such it catches is still amazing. That said, I've noticed the motor struggles a bit now after so many years and the inside of the machine itself has gotten coated in dust. This may be a simple question, but what's the lifespan of a well-working air purifier? Thanks, -Michael

A: Generally speaking, 10-15 years is what we expect to see for the lifespan on many Blueair air purifiers. This will vary some depending on conditions and use. If you have a local dealer who does repairs, they may be able to do some cleaning to the machine, but generally it's not easy to access the motor as many of their models are riveted together, as opposed to screwed or bolted. If you have access to an air compressor, you can use a blow-down attachment to try to blow as much buildup as you can from the motor, and that should help.

Q3: Is this Blueair purifier now being made and/or assembled in China?

A: For the most part, yes. However, Blueair hasn't been entirely forthcoming with this information. To the best of my knowledge assembly no longer takes place here in the U.S. with the exception of a few models. For all units, the components are all made in China of foreign and domest components, and the filter media is made in the USA.

Blueair 503 HEPA Air Purifier Reviews

Blueair 503 Air Purifier

I could not wait to try out one of the air purifiers from Blueair. I have consistently looked for an air purifier that balances filtration and dust removal with noise level, and with Blueair models billed specifically for this, I was very interested in trying one out. After a week of using the Blueair 503, I can safely say that it completely lived up to my expectations. The first two fan speeds are virtually inaudible. The third fan speed, where I usually leave it while I sleep, is fairly quiet also - just a soothing hum in the background.

Being able to breathe fresh, clean air while I sleep makes such a difference in the quality of my rest and even in the amounts of visible dust in my bedroom. Here is a more of a "nuts and bolts" assessment of my time with the Blueair 503.

What I like about the Blueair 503

It is quiet. The first two fan settings are so quiet I can barely hear them. The highest fan setting may be a little noisy for light sleepers, but it can work as a "white noise" for others. The knob on the simply styled operation panel makes it easy to turn it from speed to speed, so it's no problem to switch it from higher to lower as you leave and enter the room, just like switching on the light.

It's effective. Whether it is a reduction in visible dust or finding yourself having fewer reactions or sleeping better through the night, the Blueair 503 is designed to remove a wide variety of indoor pollutants and allergens. Thanks to the HEPASilent filter, the Blueair does this with even the smallest allergens like cat dander! The 503 tests well in the CADR, a 375 rating across the board, and the internal design and filter structure is such that the 503 moves a great deal of air, quickly. You can get 5 air exchanges per hour in a room as large as 22'x22'.

It is economical. On the lowest fan speed, the Blueair 503 consumes about a little as 32 watts of power, far less than a standard light bulb. Even on the highest speed it is energy efficient, only consuming about 120 watts. You can run the air purifier all the time without worrying about the electric bill.
It is attractive. The neutral off-white blends in seamlessly with my walls, and the sleek contemporary curves of the design give it a little more aesthetic appeal than most air purifiers. Actually, this design won Blueair one of the most prestigious design awards in Scandinavia - the Excellent Swedish Design award. I like that Blueair designs their products to look nice as well as perform to high standards, and ultimately, many of us can't deny that even if an appliance is functional, if it looks like something from the prehistoric age of computers or too much like something you'd find in a factory or hospital, we're not going to want it in our living room.

Maintenance is very simple. You simple open the top panel, pull the three filters and drop new ones in place every six months. Other than this, while your dusting you can clean the intake vents off from time to time, and that's it!

Unlike smaller Blueair air purifiers, the 503 pulls air in through the bottom and lower two sides while pushing clean air out through the top and upper two sides. This allows for better circulation of air throughout the room.

The optional SmokeStop filter provides added protection against odor and smoke. For me, this was the ideal filter instead of the standard HEPASilent filter. The SmokeStop filter has just under four pounds of carbon and does a good job and keeping dog odors down. Plus, it still retains the particle filtration of the HEPASilent filter. This filter style is also good if you have a smoker in the house, and overall the SmokeStop broadens the filtration range for those sensitive to tobacco smoke and strong odors.

What I do not like about the Blueair 503

Unlike other air purifiers brands, the 503 (like the other Blueair models) using no gaskets to ensure an airtight seal between the filters and the housing. The filters do fit snugly in all models, so this works to alleviate this concern.

In summary, as one of the most popular Blueair air purifiers, the 503 sets high filtration standards and delivers. With easy use, low maintenance needs, and a universal appeal, this air purifier fits well into nearly any home. Low energy consumption and a 5 year warranty give added piece of mind while an optional SmokeStop filters broaden this model's appeal for pet owners and those needing to remove smoke or odors from your neighbor's cooking!
