In the end, this is what makes the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 so compelling, and a better choice for serious allergy sufferers than even the flagships of the company like Envion Therapure TPP240 or Envion Therapure TPP440. It’s a True HEPA air purifier, with the certified strongest air filter to capture all airborne allergens. Welcome to the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Review, for the first and only True HEPA air purifier of Envion at the moment.

The Envion was once a popular air purifier brand in the North America market, with an army of products in hand. This brand isn’t the most heard name at the moment, with little visibility on some well-known retailers like Amazon. As the only air purifier in Allergy Pro series now, the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 is the ace to compete in a highly competitive segment. Okay, let’s get back to the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Review.

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Price
While the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 is certainly the best air purifier of Envion in terms of performance – the question everyone wants to answer is: can it kill the top dogs in low-range?
Or, short of outright death and dismemberment, can it at least capture some glory? Especially in an era when we don’t feel the availability of Envion in Amazon.
The short answer is: not in a blue moon, but then the truth is Envion making the Allergy Pro series to be with True HEPA filter, our today Envion Allergy Pro AP200 will have a strong foundation to face most tower air purifiers in the same price range.
You can get the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 with the official price of $129, and that’s only the price of the old Therapure TPP230. If you want the flagships like Therapure TPP240 or Therapure TPP440, you will be charged for $20 more.
This price tag is also more affordable than the popular Envion Ionic Pro Turbo of this family, as well as many tower air purifiers from other brands like GermGuardian or Honeywell. However, the real rivals in this segment are the new 2019 devices: Levoit Core 300 or InvisiClean Aura II. With True HEPA filter and good basic features, these air purifiers are much more preferable.
The Envion Allergy Pro AP200 is still a good air purifier, and if you want one, you can get it through our deal.

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Design and Size
What you will discover is a capable tower air purifier, not the original console air purifier like the first model in Allergy Pro series from years ago. Making a device with tower design concept means Envion is ready to add the certified True HEPA filter into the popular Therapure series. The exact date for this change, however, is uncertain.
The real challenge is that Envion needs to give a little change from the appearance of Envion Allergy Pro AP200, so that customers won’t mistake it with one in Therapure series. Remember that they want to position the Allergy Pro air purifier as a real deal for allergies, so even in the tower form, the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 must be different.
Envion did the changes by making tower air purifier with 25 inches in height, but spending 5 inches for a big handle on top. It is quite similar to a top air outlet, but no, it is just a simple handle. Envion also reduces the weight of Envion Allergy Pro AP200 to only 8.7 lbs, and thanks to this big handle, you can move the air purifier quite easily.
For the core air flow system, Envion Allergy Pro AP200 remains the common back-to-top from tower air purifiers. They use the perforated holes in front air outlet again, as this is the design concept of the previous Therapure TPP50. From the back, we still have a large air grill for air intake.
To cut cost, we won’t see the LED display from Therapure TPP240 anymore. Instead, the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 operates with only one manual knob, using 3 different fan speeds.

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Filters
To decide the performance of one air purifier, normally we will check the quantity and quality of the air filters, as well as the actual air filter types inside the device. As the only True HEPA air purifier in the family, Envion Allergy Pro AP200 will use only 1-stage air cleaning system as below.
- True HEPA filter – The Envion Allergy Pro AP200 uses only one certified True HEPA filter, to capture 99.97% of dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, hair, mold spores and fungi down to 0.3 microns in size.
There is not much to say about the quality of Envion True HEPA air filter. It is not only certified by California Air Resources Board (CARB), it is also from one of the biggest air purifier brands in the world. With only one air filter, the air purifier can do better than any air purifiers in this family.
Now, back to the most curious part, I tested the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 in a room of 150 square feet, and let it run in 1 hour. The efficiency of this air purifier was 99.5% for trapping all airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. This result was as good as some tower air purifiers of Guardian Technologies like GermGuardian AC5250PT or GermGuardian AC5300B.
This air purifier uses the exclusive AP200F True HEPA filter, and you need to change after 6 months of use. However, I can’t find any deal for this air filter, and you need to go to the local air purifier stores for a filter replacement.

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Room Coverage
The Envion Allergy Pro AP200 not only brings the necessary True HEPA filter to power-users, it also improves the fan power to match the requirement of this air filter type. Envion Allergy Pro AP200 can clean a room up to 350 square feet without any problem.
The ACH of Envion Allergy Pro AP200 is 3x. This air changes per hour rating means the device will clean your room 3 times per hour, once every 20 minutes.
The CADR of Envion Allergy Pro AP200 is 156 Dust/ 137 Smoke/ 197 Pollen (cfm).

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Sound
Sadly, with the new power of the air filter and the fan, the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 will continue any problems of loud noise. Just like any air purifiers in the Therapure series, this air purifier isn’t recommended for quiet places, mostly the bedroom and the co-working space.
I’ve measured the noise level of Envion Allergy Pro AP200 to be 60 decibels (db) at maximum, and I believe it is too high for an air purifier with such only performance.

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” because we need to run an air purifier for a constant long time, and power consumption is really a thing to consider.
The power consumption of Envion Allergy Pro AP200 is only 55 watts, which is quite similar to its brothers. Without the additional UV-C lamp like Therapure series, the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 deserves the Energy Star rating for being energy-saving.
Running an Envion Allergy Pro AP200 for 8 hours per day, and you need to pay $20 each year.

Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Additional Features
Like I’ve said earlier, the Envion Allergy Pro AP200 needs some ways to cut cost, so it can keep the True HEPA filter with lower price tag than the rest of its family. So to say, just like any air purifiers before the Therapure TPP240, Envion Allergy Pro AP200 only consists of one manual knob, to change the fan speeds.
It doesn’t even have a LED indicator for filter replacement, so you should remember the date by yourself. If you want an air purifier with more fancy features, I suggest to look for the SilverOnyx, Hathaspace or AeraMax 200 within the same price range.
Envion Allergy Pro AP200 Customer Service
Envion is a subsidiary of the Swiss brand Boneco, a big air purifier brand with exceptional customer service. You can call the support for any Envion products toll free at 800-875-8577. This is the quickest way to reach the customer service, but if you prefer email, their contact is email@example.com.
You will only enjoy the warranty for the first year since purchase date, and you need to pay for any shipping and processing fee that occur. 1-year warranty is not as good as many other big brands (even Boneco own products have better warranty policy), but it is still better than nothing, right?
If you are an Envion fan, and if you have serious allergies or asthma, then you will love the Envion Allergy Pro AP200. This is the best air purifier of Envion in terms of fan power and air filtration system, and with a much more affordable price than the flagships.
