Filters And Performance

Unlike the previous MA-40 that comes with an ionizer, Medify Air MA-50 uses four layers of filtration consisting of: pre-filter, H13 True HEPA, UV light disinfection, and active carbon composite. The pre-filter captures large PM10 particles like dust, hair, fibers, lint and protects the H13 HEPA filter. The medical-grade H13 HEPA filter will remove 99.9% of microscopic pollutants as small as 0.1 microns e.g. dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, asbestos, carbon dust, paint pigment bacteria, and virus carrier. The active carbon composite neutralizes pet odors, cooking smells, musty mold, common smoke, carbon dust, harmful toxins e.g. VOCs, asbestos, formaldehyde, benzene. UV light radiates a short wavelength that kills biological pollutants and prevents them from multiplying and spreading. It is safe and effective particular when paired with an H13 HEPA filtration.

Medify MA-50 air purifier is surprisingly quieter than MA-40 even though the differences are neglectable. When running at low-speed (night mode), the noise level is around 35dBA which outputs a whispering sound at best. The high-speed 56 dBA can be distracting for some, you will get used to it in a short amount of time. Since there is no auto mode in sight, use the lowest speed during nighttime or when you need absolute quiet. For power usage, Medify MA-50 is Energy Star rated that uses 54 watts of energy per hour. Not the most efficient unit given its strong output, you can still expect a marginally low 3-4 dollars of monthly electricity bill.

^ Replacement filters/ estimated cost
Medify MA-50 air purifier will cost you around 300+ dollars including the comprehensive filtration. While the price is justifiable for the build quality, air filtration, and lifetime warranty, there are no built-in sensors and auto mode by default. That said, the biggest obstacle for us is the high MA-50 filter cost that requires replacing every 3 to 4 months or 2,500 hours. Expect to pay 78 to 156 dollars annually depending on how bad the room quality is. Rather than going down the third-party filters root, there are other cheaper alternatives to go if you want an H13 air purifier with a low maintenance cost.
Undoubtedly the best place to buy Medify MA-50 air purifiers is on Amazon. It offers close to 100 dollars saving with plenty of stock availability. You will enjoy Amazon Prime perks, bundled discounts, free shipping, and installment plans. Official Medify website is doable as well but the price is less attractive compared with Amazon. If you are not happy with the purchase, there is also a no question asked 30 days return policy. Other retailers like Walmart may carry the product as well so do check them out.

Pros

  • Strong airflow that covers a large 1,100 square footage at 2 air changes/ hour or 550 sq. ft. at 4 air changes/ hour.
  • Well made with high-quality premium temper glass panel.
  • Hospital-grade H13 HEPA filter capture 99.9% of airborne particles down to 0.1 microns.
  • Active carbon composite filter swiftly contain smoke and odors from food, pet, VOCs.

Cons
