Air purifiers are becoming a popular home accessory—fantastic for limiting allergens, odors, pet dander, and even viruses. This article reviews the Hathaspace Air Purifier brand and what you can expect from their Smart True HEPA models.
The Hathaspace Air Purifier Range Explained
Rather than develop an extensive array of air purifiers, Hathaspace has taken the time to focus in on what works well. Between these two products, all of your home air purifying needs will be met:
This is Hathaspace’s original 5-in-1 air purifier, fantastic for medium to large sized rooms of up to 700 square feet.
Hathaspace’s brand new Energy Star rated smart air purifier. Some will argue that it’s only twice the price. We would argue that it’s twice the functionality and a powerful device to have in areas of up to 1500 square feet.
We go into more detail on both of these models below.
Hathaspace Air Purifier Compared
Why Choose the Hathaspace Air Purifier Brand?
5 Stage Filtration Systems
Each model has 5-Stage Filtration built-in. Although the two models are slightly different (only the HSP002 includes a medical grade H13 filter), either option will dramatically improve your air quality.
- Nano Cold Catalyst Filter
Cold catalyst filters are often described as the “first line of defense.” These filters are great at trapping toxic household chemicals, VOCs, and other pollutants caused by household cleaners.
- Washable Pre-Filter
Found only on the newer HSP002 model, the washable pre-filter is in place to capture large particles (think pet hair) and will preserve the cleanliness of your H13 HEPA filter—thus extending its life.
- Activated Carbon Filter
These filters are in place to help with smoke, gasses, odors, and VOCs. If you’re primarily looking for an air purifier for your cooking space, make sure you get one with an activated carbon filter.
- Antibacterial Filter
The HSP001 lacks the medical-grade H13 filter, but it does have an antibacterial filter that works to capture bacteria and virus germs.
- True HEPA Filter
While both models feature a True HEPA filter, the HSP001 has a standard HEPA filter, and the HSP002 has an H13 medical grade HEPA filter that is also preceded with a polypropylene filter, which removes larger particles like dust and pet hair.
The HSP001 includes an ionizer. This function releases negative ions that attach to positively charged air pollutants and neutralize them, further sanitizing the air. Although there has been some debate on the safety of ionizers, you can also use the HSP001 without this function if you prefer.
Breathe Cleaner Air
The number one reason people purchase air purifiers is to breathe cleaner air. And with the Hathaspace brand, the Automatic Airflow System uses a smart sensor to automatically detect your home’s air quality and adjust the fans accordingly. You can see the current air quality yellow on their sliding color scale that moves from red (poor) to green (excellent).
Relieve Allergies and Asthma Symptoms
Significant research has gone into proving that air purifiers actually help those with allergy and asthma symptoms, and it all comes down to choosing the right air purifier for your needs. These Hathaspace models are a good choice for helping you control your allergies and asthma.
Extra-Large Coverage Area
Many air purifiers on the market are only suitable for smaller spaces – some even considered “personal air purifiers.” Hathaspace, on the other hand, focuses on purifying large coverage areas. The HSP001 covers up to 700 square feet, and the HSP002 covers up to 1,500 square feet.
LED Display & Smart Features
Each Hathaspace model comes with an easy to read LED display featuring an intuitive touch panel to get you up and running within seconds. Interestingly, only the HSP001 comes equipped with a remote control. When it comes to smart features, we’re mainly talking about the Automatic Airflow System that will adjust to your home’s air quality as needed. Unfortunately, neither model is WiFi-compatible.
Best Hathaspace Air Purifiers
1. Hathaspace Smart True HEPA
|Coverage Area||700 Sq. ft.|
|Filtration Type||5 Stage Filtration|
|Filtration Life||4 Months|
|Noise Level||21 (low) – 43 (high) dba|
|Air Quality Sensor||Yes|
The Hathaspace Smart True HEPA, or the HSP001, is an excellent home accessory for areas of up to 700 square feet. You’ll notice the difference in air quality almost immediately and be impressed by just how much this fresh air concierge can do. We believe this model is best for allergies.
This model comes with 5 stages of filtration that includes an optional ionizer. And when set on Auto-Mode, it will adjust fan speed based on your current air quality. The quality is also available on the touchscreen panel via a color spectrum, with red being poor, yellow being not great, and green being ideal.
Some of the Hathaspace reviews we read were skeptical about the accuracy of this air quality testing, but leave it to my six-year-old daughter to get to the bottom of whether or not it’s real. Upon learning what the different colors meant, she began putting smelly things in front of the HSP001 to see if the colors would change. And they did! Usually within 20-30 seconds, we would see a shift in the air quality from green to yellow, and the fan speed would automatically kick up a notch.
Many customers purchase this model for its sleek design, but what will really impress you is how extremely quiet it is. With a decibel rating of just 21 on the lowest setting (when air quality is green), you won’t even know it’s on.
On their website, customer Mark writes, “Should have gotten it a long time ago. Runs very quiet.”
Hathaspace offers a 2 year warranty on this air purifier model. However, if you sign up for their Filter Club that automatically subscribes you to receiving filters at a 10% discount, your warranty will be extended to 5 years total.
2. Hathaspace Smart True HEPA 2.0
|Coverage Area||1500 Sq. ft.|
|Filtration Type||5 Stage Filtration|
|Filtration Life||4 Months|
|Noise Level||30 (low) – 60 (high) dba|
|Air Quality Sensor||Yes|
Brand new from Hathaspace is the HSP002, the best Hathaspace air purifier for large areas. Perfect for up to 1500 square feet, the 2.0 is an excellent addition to family rooms, basements, open living floorplans, and apartments. And if you think that an air purifier that covers this much space would be too cumbersome to move around as needed, think again. The 2.0 weighs a mere 25 lbs.
Jim notes on the Hathaspace site, “All in all this works great. The air feels cleaner. No more waking up with blocked nose. Very pleased.”
Like the previous model, this compact Hathaspace air purifier has five levels of filtration. But as an upgrade, this model features an H13 medical grade HEPA filter, which is the same type you will find in many hospitals.
The HSP002 is the first Hathaspace model to be Energy Star certified – something we don’t see a lot of on air purifiers! You can feel comfortable leaving this machine on 24/7 to clean your space, just as you would leave on a furnace or air conditioner. And while it’s slightly noisier than the HSP001, the sound is still moderate (comparable to a tableside fan).
This model leaves behind both the ionizer and the remote control that are included with the HSP001; however, we don’t feel that bothered by it. The company backs this product with a 5 year warranty and outstanding 24/7 customer service.
Our only complaint with this air purifier is that some customers are (rightfully) confused by its “smart” label. While it does sense air quality, it is not WiFi compatible in any way.

About the Hathaspace Brand
Hathaspace is a newer company, having been founded in Tampa, Florida in 2017 with a diffuser and then moving into the air purifier market. They have a small team that works closely together to offer their customers fantastic customer service.
According to the company, “A fun fact, our name [Hathaspace] comes from two ancient Sanskrit words – “ha” meaning sun and “tha” meaning moon. Together, these words set the stage for our deepest core values – balance and renewal.”
Comparing Hathaspace with Similar Air Purifier Brands
Hathaspace vs. Levoit
Levoit is also a newer company focusing on air purifiers. Both companies offer competitively priced products and warranties; however, Hathaspace primarily focuses on purifying large areas. So in that sense, Levoit has a more extensive range of products.
Hathaspace vs. Germ Guardian
Germ Guardian air purifiers often feature a lot of “extras” such as UV light sanitation, deodorizers, and air fresheners. The company’s primary focus is killing germs. In terms of quality, Germ Guardian and Hathaspace both have outstanding devices. However, Germ Guardian models only cover up to about 180 square feet of space.
People Also Ask (FAQ)
What is a true HEPA air purifier?
HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air.
This type of filter is defined by the US Department of Energy as able to “remove 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns.”
What’s the difference between HEPA and true HEPA?
Some companies like to advertise that they have a HEPA-like air filter. Watch out for this, because it often means it is less efficient than a true HEPA filter, which is rated to trap at least 99.97% of particles, as stated above.
Can I use an air purifier and diffuser at the same time?
You can use an air purifier and diffuser simultaneously, but you might find that it’s counterproductive as the two have nearly opposite features. We recommended running your diffuser with your chosen essential oil first, and when you are finished, then turning on your air purifier.
How do you use a Hathaspace diffuser?
Using Hathaspace’s White Marble Diffuser couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is simply open the top, fill the reservoir with filtered water and 5-8 drops of essential oils, secure the lid and turn it on.
What are the benefits of Hathaspace marble essential oil aroma diffuser?
Hathaspace lists these benefits for their White Marble Diffuser:
- Promotes relaxation
- Relieves stress and improves mood
- Improves sleep
- Boosts memory
- Increases energy levels
- Speeds up healing and reduces pain
- Reduces headaches
- Strengthens immune system
- Improves digestion
Is manual included when you buy a Hathaspace air purifier?
Yes, Hathaspace includes a manual with your purchase of an air purifier. You can also find their manuals quickly on their website.
We hope that our Hathaspace air purifier review has helped you get in-tune with the brand and their offerings. These air purifiers are great for larger spaces, and they are so quiet that you can leave them running 24/7 without any bother.
