Rabbit Air MinusA2 Air Purifier Review and Giveaway

I have a sensitive nose. Just ask my husband (who does NOT have a sensitive nose). And I’m not just talking smells. My nose is sensitive to allergens, too. Yes, I am a seasonal allergy sufferer, with itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose and all.

Back when the townhouse next door had a bad case of black mold, I knew I had to buckle down and buy something to clean my air. So it was that, a few years ago, I purchased my first air purifier.

This past month, I had the opportunity to test out a new air purifier from Rabbit Air. The Rabbit Air MinusA2 Cherry Blossom artist series air purifier makes all other air purifiers that I have seen or tried previously seem like children’s toys. Not only is the MinusA2 beautiful to look at, but it is an extremely powerful machine.

What the Rabbit MinusA2 Air Purifier removes:

  • Pre-Filter: Large particles, Pet hair, Dust, Mold
  • Medium Filter: Bacteria, Pollen, Dust particles, Mold
  • BioGS HEPA Filter: Fungus, Bacteria, Dust mites, Pollen, Allergens, Household odors, Mold, Dust particles, Tobacco smoke, Greenhouse gases (NOx & SOx), Dander
  • Customized Filter:
    • Germ Defense: Allergens, Mold, Bacteria, Particles that can carry viruses
    • Pet Allergy: Pet dander, Dander that can carry viruses, Bacteria, Pet odors
    • Toxin Absorber: Chemical Substances, Off-gassing, Greenhouse gases, Cigarette odor, VOCs, Formaldehyde
    • Odor Remover: Tobacco smoke, Household odors, Cooking odors, Pet odors, Musty odors
  • Charcoal Based Activated Carbon Filter: Tobacco smoke, VOCs, Chemical substances, Household odors, Cooking odors, Pet odors, Exhaust fumes

I love that the Rabbit Air MinusA2 air purifier is designed to either stand alone or be mounted on the wall (a floor stand is included with the unit and can be easily removed for wall-mount). I was drawn to the pretty design on the unit that I was sent, which makes the air purifier a nice addition that adds style to a room instead of a bulky, unattractive addition like most everything else.

How the Rabbit MinusA2 Air Purifier works:



Inlet:
Indoor air is drawn through the filters 360 degrees around the front panel.
Outlet: Clean air is expelled from the back of the unit in an upward direction towards the room.

My teenagers have commented this past week that the air that comes out of the MinusA2 feels cooler, like a mini air conditioner. It really has been a nice fan that not only helps the room “breath easier” but it creates helpful airflow, especially during the warm Spring and Summer months.

  1. L Cavalletta says

    This looks lke a fabulous product and would be ideal here in Florida. The allergens are at an all time high! Thanks for the chance to clean up our indoor air :-)

  2. Birdie Skolfield says

    an air pur. would help me to control dust & pet dander in my home making all our eyes & lungs clearer

  3. kathy goldberg says

    i have a daughter w/ asthma so i know this would help especially since she is home from college and it seems to have reared it’s ugly head again…

  4. Dameon S says

    This purifier would come in handy at my house since we don’t have central air we have to open up all our windows when it gets hot out. Because the windows are open we get a ton of dust and pollen inside our house and. Y wife and I have allergies . Either be snot free and hot or be cool and snotty.

  5. says

    We’ve been looking at airpurifiers for a long time. I suffer from horrible seasonal allergies (this year has been a doozie!!!) and out poor 19 month old has inherited his mommy’s bad sinuses :( Poor little guy did nothing but wheeze during March and April and was on his nebulizer daily. We have 4 cats and live in an old apartment built into an old Victorian House so I can never really get all the dust and allergens out. A new purifier would be like a whole new world for us!

  6. says

    Oh, geez. I suffer from year round allergies so I would LOVE one of these. Thanks for the chance to win and help get rid of the yellow pollen, the dust, the cat dander, the dog fur, and so forth!

  7. says

    We have two dogs…and I have allergies. I’m not really allergic to them, but one of them tends to get to me sometimes. I think this would help that a LOT!

  8. Trisha Scott says

    I think it would help lots with all the dust and other particle plus with 3 smokers in the house would love to have one to clean up the air my child breaths in

  9. says

    My twelve year old has had an ear infection every month for the last three months. Her doctor c;laims it’s due to allergies (sometimes she forgets to take her claritin). This would be a tremendous help!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. suburban prep says

    Both my husband and I have allergies. It would probably help in the sneezing that happens in our home most mornings.

  11. erine says

    my family suffers from allergies. this would be a tremendous help. and i love that it has a design!

  12. lisa hawkes says

    Gotta say this would be a saver here in my house, my son and I both have nasty allergies. We live in Portland where there tends to be a lot of MOLD too. This would be nice! thanks! I also like you on facebook as Lili Bee Lee! THANKS!!

  13. says

    Allergy and me come a long way. I’ve a habit of sneezing every morning and sometimes the sneeze continues till evening leaving me with a itchy and watery eyes and nose and occasional headaches. I did love to get the rabbit air purifier and see if it works for me.

  14. Liz says

    This has been the worst year ever. What a timely giveaway–because, in this house, time for a new filter or for giveaway of the dog.

  15. ginette4 says

    I live in an old house on a busy street, lots and lots of dust in this house, I cannot keep up, it’s aweful..I believe this product will help minimize the amount of dust.

  16. Anne Lehnick says

    Our home is very drafty and I too (along with the kids) suffer from seasonal allergies. I think an air purifier might help keep some of the allergens that we drag into the house at bay.

  17. Ju P. says

    We live in NYC, so an air purifier would help clean out the allergens that are stuck in our apartment.

  18. Lorna England says

    I had the worst allergies this winter! INSIDE the house! Ack! This type of product is something I really need to try!

  19. Stephanie H says

    I think it would help decrease the cat dander and pollan in my air because I have 2 cats and one of them is only experimenting with becoming a house kitty so he still goes outside several times a day

  20. Chris says

    My wife has allergies, so an air purifier would really help out with the air quality in our home. I’m not so happy when my wife’s upset, lol.

  21. Cheryl Rahkonen says

    I have a small air purifier in my bedroom so that I can sleep. A larger one in the living room would help with my allergies and asthma. Also my grandsons would benefit greatly from having an air purifier. They also have allergies.

  22. Amber Smith says

    We have a lot of things floating around in the air here so I would love to win this to help clear it out. Thank you.

  23. Debbie B says

    I have a big old air purifier that has seen better days, and need to run it all year round as I am sensitive to the dog’s dander and dust. These are so pretty and I like that you can hang them on the wall and free up that big open floor space needed for the floor model one I have.

  24. Kimberly says

    I think this would help my home by giving me a little more peace of mind. I have a new baby and two dogs, who were like my first babies. I am worried about her developing allergies to her “brothers”.

  25. Kelly Elswick says

    This is awesome! I have 2 cats and a dog, plus 2 lil ones. My oldest has always had respiratory issues. Thanks for the chance!

  26. Mary L. says

    With a shedding rabbit and two guinea pigs, I could use an air purifier to help me breathe a little easier. Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. says

    My little one struggle with allergies and I always worry that the indoor air isn’t helping him any. I would love to know our air is as clean as it could be!

  28. says

    We have two indoor cats and a purifier is key for pet dander and for litter dust. We have one that runs overnight in my daughter’s room but a purifier for the rest of the house would be great.

  29. says

    My daughter and husband have really bad allergies. Mine aren’t great, but I take flonase, so I don’t sneeze as often as they do! Anyway, I think an air purifier would really help with their allergies.

  30. holly says

    I live in a older home and my husband and 2 year old both have allergies so this would be very useful!

  31. holly says

    an air purifier in our home would help with dust and we also have a dog so it would help with pet dander as well

  32. Jeanne B.T. says

    I have allergies and COPD. I have to use oxgyen and where I live big truck (that are working on the pipelines going in here in the eastern part of the USA) go by and blow dust all the time. The dust chokes me and an air purifier would help so much. Thank you for the chance. :)

  33. says

    We need this in our home because all 5 of us suffer from all kinds of allergies. We are sick of being sick. What a grand blessing this would be.

  34. Brandy W. says

    We’ve found a touch of mold in our home and we have a dog and multiple cats… It would be LOVELY to finally have a fresh smelling house again!!

  35. Donna Marie says

    I have severe asthma so I think having one would help out so much with my breathing esp in the summer when the pollen is the worst here.

  36. Sandra says

    I’m sniffling away right now – I love the look and smell of the lilac bushes outside our bedroom window, but wish I wasn’t so allergic to them!

  37. Shari says

    I’m on oxygen 24 hours a day, and we live in a big house with a cat and a dog, so there is always lots of stray hair and dust about, no matter how often we clean. I think this purifier would have to help give me cleaner air to breath.

  38. Felina M says

    Where I live has been having high pollen counts, plus it is just so dusty here. The air filter would help with my families allergies.

  39. Tracey says

    my husband suffers from asthma and terrible allergies. This would help him breathe so much easier!

  40. Lisa s says

    OMG Dream come true to win this!! I have an Umbrella Cockatoo with sooooo much dander! My old air cleaner died and my allergies are awful!!

  41. Joon Lee says

    I have been using Oreck air purifier and recently found out it omits ozone… I used it put it in the room where my baby girl (now 2 1/2 yr old) sleeps… This new purifier can help me undo some harm.

  42. Jeff says

    Since I was little, I have always suffered from allergies and have to take medication to help with the symptoms. I would love to try this purifier to see if it would eliminate my need to take meds!

    Thanks you =)
    Jeff

  43. Janine says

    This would really help me – I need to eliminate the smell of cat urine odor coming through my walls from my neighbor’s apartment – but I can’t afford to buy one right now. Please help me and my birds!

  44. nichole b. says

    I just moved into a house close to my school. It’s an adorable, older, victorian home. Unfortunately, aside from the typical dust, I’m deal with a mold spore problem from the bathroom. Once I go to lay I immediately begin to get clogged passages, dried blood, bloody nose, headaches, sneezing, lots of mucous or a sore throat. This happened the first night I moved in and for the past 2 weeks. I neeeeeeeed this please.

  45. Suzanne B. says

    We live by grass seed fields. The pollen these fields produce makes us all suffer horribly all spring and summer.

  46. Rich says

    My wife who is pregnant and due in October has terrible allergies right now! This will help a lot!

  47. Carolyn Tran says

    The Rabbit Air MinusA2 Air Purifier will be a true gift in our household full of lovable pets!

  48. Wehaf says

    We have a very old home, so it is quite dusty. This would help keep the air clearer and let us sleep better!

  49. Rise Isom says

    We could use it with the construction,highway and yard work that always keeps the air stirred up, Plus everyone has a cottonwood tree that sends out cotton continuously

  50. Anita Yancey says

    I think it would help my family because we have several different allergies. We also live near the interstate and get a lot of pollution from it. Thanks for having this giveaway.

  51. says

    allergies kill my son and I – and we’re moving this week – this would be a great addition to our new home!

    thanks for the chance!

  52. Leslie Galloway says

    We just added two puppies to our home, and my hubby has allergies and asthma. I’m sure an air purifier would help him adjust.

  53. Emu says

    Do you ever dread when the snow is cleared on your roads – I do. Snow Mold. Yikes. My son is Ashmatic and recently he was recouping from a bout of bronchitis for 7 weeks. Sleepless nights. Air purifier would be a huge blessing. If it lends comfort to my son and lets him rest easy – Fantastic.

  54. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    We have so much smoke & dust flying around in here with 3 dogs runnign around constantly, it’d be nice to breath fresh air again… (hence, the air purifier). Thanks for the chance!

  55. says

    We live on a dirt road in the country, there always so much dust and allergens in the air. All of us have allergies and it sounds like we may breath easier with it.

  56. Erin Guymon says

    It would help our allergies in the summer.
    We also live where the wind blows constantly. Dust is a huge issue here. On a really windy day you can see the dust in the air.

  57. *°•ƸӜƷ Louis ƸӜƷ•°* says

    we live very close to a major freeway and the air is always bad here
    Thank you for hosting this giveaway

    An air purifier would help my family suffer less from dust and other allergies and we would sleep better too.
