When we started researching the best home air filter system after discovering toxic black mold in our home, it became obvious that the Air Doctor Pro was the best home filtration option on the market. And not just the best in terms of healthy air quality, but the best overall (including price!).
Then, as I learned more about the proven dangers of most air fresheners and commonly found VOCs from toxic off-gassing and dangerous cleaning products, I became convinced that EVERYONE (not just people with mold in their home) needed an air filtration systems in their home.
Helping people enjoy pure, clean air quickly became part of our Natural Living Family mission as we continue to help provide non-toxic, chemical-ree solutions to everyday life.
True, diffusing essential oils has therapeutic benefits and they smell great, but they don’t remove pollutants from the air in your home. That’s the difference with Air Doctor Pro!

Importance of Clean Air
Without doubt, pure air is the #1 determinant of health. Followed by water, and then food. Just think about it. You can live for several days without water, a couple weeks without food, but without air, you’ll suffocate in just minutes.
Truth is, we consume a mass, ton of air (infinitely more than the water that we drink and food that we eat), but a vast majority of people are more concerned about their diet, supplement & exercise regimens and neglect the air that they breathe… innocently allowing toxins into their body at an uncontrollable rate.
It wasn’t until we completely detoxed & house and cleaned up the air in our home that we finally knew what health really was.
- Seasonal allergies vanished.
- Inflammation, aches and pains disappeared.
- Unexplained symptoms like itching, allergies to airborne particles and Candida overgrowth went away.
- Brain fog cleared up.
- Literally, our health (and lives!) transformed within weeks.
If it weren’t for Air Doctor, we don’t know what we would have done. We have two units in our home and our air quality improved instantly. In just a few hours, we couldn’t detect any foul smell or mold in the air and our health soon followed…… Because we fell in love with the product, we met with Air Doctor and discussed how we can give YOU (our Natural Living Family) a “group buy.”

Indoor air pollution is caused by a combination of particles like pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores and smoke combined with ozone, invisible gases and volatile organic compounds which are emitted by building materials, furniture, carpeting, paint, cleaning and personal care products.
This is a recipe for a health disaster – and we can personally testify to how polluted air almost devastated our health.

Why We Love Air Doctor Pro in Our Home
We have a whole-home system moving air in our home. In fact we have more than one HVAC system because we have more than one level in our home. But we still have TWO Air Doctor Pro units in our home – one on the main level and one in the basement of our home.

We moved into a wonderful home that needed some fixing – the shed and deck were literally falling apart. While our shed was being rebuilt, we had to keep the lawn mower, leaf blower, and other outdoor garden equipment in the basement. But my office is also in the basement. The indoor air pollution from the gas fumes and other chemicals was awful and made it difficult for me to even get my work done!
With the Air Doctor Pro unit in the basement, now I can’t even tell. It cleans all those VOCs and other chemicals out of the air so I can breathe easy and do what I need to do without risking my health. The unit on the main level helps eliminate normal odors that come with having many active children living in our home. And I know that my kids are getting the freshest, healthiest air possible.
How the Air Doctor Pro is the Best Home Air Filter
Here’s how Air Doctor Pro works. Most air filters you pick up at home improvement stores don’t protect you from air pollutants because they only remove particles before the air flows into the HVAC units. Air Doctor Pro uses multiple filtration levels in an air-tight system.
The Air Doctor Pro’s CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) is 326 – higher than competitors with even a much higher price point. It removes particles yes, but also volatile organic chemicals, gases, and toxic ozone. Also you’re getting not just one filter, but also a dual action Carbon/Gas Trap/VOC filter for odor and VOC control.

Benefits of Air Doctor Pro Air Filtration System
Some of the other benefits you’ll find with the Air Doctor Pro is the quiet fan. Also, the filters last for a long time. Whereas our HVAC units need monthly filter replacement, Air Doctor Pro filters last for months, even years.

One of my favorite features is the auto-mode. Instead of remembering to turn it on and off, or guessing at the level of filtration needed, the Air Doctor Pro automatically adjusts itself based on the amount of air pollutants it detects. When the air quality is good, it will run on low fan speed and you’ll see a blue indicator light. When the air quality has a higher level of need the fan automatically speeds up and the indicator light changes to orange and then to red. Yikes!
This means that any pollen spikes, dust from cleaning, or backyard shed emergencies will be automatically accounted for and cleaned up by the Air Doctor Pro.
A Word From Our Content Director We raved about Air Doctor Pro so much that Angela, our content director, got a unit of her own. Here’s what she has to say: “We’ve been rebuilding our home after experiencing some flooding in our house. It’s been a long process but the new paint, mold remediation, and sheet-rocking has made a lot of dust and VOCs to contend with in our home. As soon as we plugged in the Air Doctor Pro the light on the auto-sensor was red! Not good!
Now the light is blue, our air is so much cleaner, and my oldest son with sensitive respiratory system is no longer coughing chronically. The air that comes out of the unit smells amazing – like walking through a lush forest amazing. I love my Air Doctor Pro and I’m so glad I took Dr Z’s recommendation and got one!“

Q. Will using an essential oil diffuser in the same room as my Air Doctor clog or ruin the machine?
A. No. According to Air Doctor’s inventor and thousands of hours of personal experience, the VOCs and water being diffused in ultrasonic diffusers will not clog or ruin the machine. Keep in mind that only 4-6 drops of essential oils are used in most aromatherapy diffusers, and the particles being emitted are microscopic and they are being dispersed over the course of a few hours. This mist being emitted will not damage your Air Doctor unit.
Q. Will using an essential oil diffuser in the same room as my Air Doctor reduce the aromatherapy effect?
A. Yes, slightly, but not enough for a noticeable effect. As an illustration: diffusing essential oils in a room with the windows open will permit some of the VOCs to escape out of your house, though that shouldn’t prevent you from using a diffuser and trying to get fresh air in your home. Just be sure not to place your diffuser right next to an open window.
Similarly, because some of the VOCs being dispersed by your aromatherapy diffuser will get filtered out of the air by the Air Doctor, we recommend that you separate both devices by several feet of space. Ideally, you’ll place your Air Doctor and aromatherapy diffuser at opposite ends of the room.
Note, diffusing certain essential oils may trigger the Air Doctor to turn yellow or even red at times, but there will still be ample of VOCs in the air to benefit your health and to freshen up the smell in the room that your diffuser is in.
Q: What is CADR?
CADR stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate, and it is standardized system for reporting the effectiveness of a particular air purifier in removing smoke, dust and pollen from the air. The higher the number the more effective the air purifier will be.
Q: What is the CADR for AirDoctor?
AirDoctor is independently tested by Intertek laboratories. The smoke CADR for AirDoctor is 326, the dust is 343, the pollen is 373. When operated with the Gas Trap VOC filter, which removes pollutants in gas state (VOC’s) and restricts the air flow by about 10%, these numbers are reduced by about 10%.
Q: What is UltraHEPA™?
HEPA is an acronym for High Efficiency Particulate Air. These filters are designed to capture particles that is 0.3 Microns. UltraHEPA™ captures particle down to 0.003 Microns. That is 100 times smaller than regular HEPA.
Q: Does AirDoctor have an Air Ionizer?
AirDoctor does feature an Air Ionizer which can be turned on or off, as you choose. Air Ionizers can help remove particulates, microbes and odors from your room, leaving it smelling fresh.
Q: How often should I change the filters?
How long the filters last depends on a couple of different factors. Specifically, the quality of the air in your home AND how many hours per day you operate your unit. Based on the air quality in the average home in the United States and Canada and 24/7 operation, the Gas Trap VOC filter should last 6 months and the UltraHEPA™ filter should last a full 12 months before they need to be replaced.
If you operate your AirDoctor for only 12 hours per day, then the Gas Trap VOC filter should last 1 year and the UltraHEPA™ filter should last a full 2 years before they need to be replaced (in homes with average air quality). We recommend that you leave your AirDoctor set to Auto, which will allow your device to adjust automatically, based on the filtering needs inside your home.
Q: How do I know when it’s time to change the filters?
Your AirDoctor comes with an automatic sensor which notifies you when it’s time to replace each of the two filters mentioned above. (Note: There is also a 3rd pre-filter, which can be easily removed and washed. With proper care and under normal operating conditions, this filter should not need to be replaced.
Q: I changed my filter, but my Change Filter light is still on. How do I reset my Change Filter indicator light?
To reset your Change Filter indicatory light, press the AUTO and DIM buttons together for 3 seconds. The CLEAN FILTER light flashes 3 times and then turn off completely, indicating the unit has been reset.
Q: How much electricity does AirDoctor use?
AirDoctor consumes 11 watts on the low setting and 95 watts on the high setting. While utility costs vary across the country, AirDoctor costs about $30-40 per year to run on Auto-mode 24/7.
Q: Does AirDoctor capture mold?
AirDoctor captures mold spores. However, mold spores in the air usually mean that there is a mold somewhere in your house. You should make sure to find the source and get rid of the root of the problem with professional remediation, if necessary.
Q: How much do these filters cost?
Both the Gas Trap VOC filter and the UltraHEPA™ filter are available for $59.95 each, plus shipping and processing.
Q: How long is AirDoctor™ warrantied for?
AirDoctor™ comes with a one-year limited warranty. Filters are consumables and are not covered under this warranty.
Q: Why has the fan speed on my AirDoctor™ changed by itself?
If you have auto mode selected, it might have detected polluted air, causing AirDoctor™ to increase the fan speed in order to clean the air faster.
Q: How much space will the AirDoctor™ cover?
The AirDoctor™ is powerful enough to filter the air in a 900 sq. ft. room three times every hour and a 450 sq. ft. room six times every hour.
Q: How much does AirDoctor™ weigh?
AirDoctor™ weighs approx. 18 pounds.
(W) 15.75 x (D)8.25 x (H)23 inches.
