This air purifier is an impressive H13 True HEPA air purifier coupled with a new design and powerful fan power.

VEVA is the top-of-mind brand for manufacturing high-quality air filters. After the popular VEVA 8000 Elite Pro, the company is confident to release a bigger console air purifier, in the name of VEVA ProHEPA 9000. This air purifier is quickly sold out in many e-retailers, but as soon as it is in stock, you need our VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Review to make a right decision.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Price
With an aggressive design and ultra-low price, the VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is one of the best budget air purifiers you can buy. This air purifier made its debut in the U.S back in February, and the company has already announced it to come with a more proper air filtration system, and larger room capability for 600 square feet.
So, there’s a lot to like in this air purifier, and just like its brother, the VEVA ProHEPA 9000 costs only $149 on official VEVA website. For the price, you get a pure air purifier, without any additional features. However, you get a certified H13 True HEPA filter made by the world renowned air filter manufacturer, as well as a decent fan power to do large room tasks.
When judged against the price, the VEVA ProHEPA 9000 comes out very well indeed, and I highly recommend buying it than its VEVA 8000 Elite Pro brother. For not much money at all, you get a device that is competent in most areas and really good in a couple.
In the crowded budget-to-mid-range part of air purifier land, the Levoit Core 300 is still the best to get. Also, if you ask for more additional features in a budget air purifier, you should look for the Filtrete FAP-C03BA-G2 or Airthereal APH260.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Design and Size
Air purifier design has plateaued in the last three years, with most devices in the market today sporting the same compact cylindrical designs. Don’t get me wrong, I like the cylindrical design on the Levoit Core 300 and previous Levoit Vista 200, but the overall aesthetic is largely unchanged across most mainstream devices.
So the previous VEVA 8000 Elite Pro is enough to catch my attention, thanks to its somewhat unique design. And in the new console VEVA ProHEPA 9000, VEVA continues to experiment with interesting new design. It is tough with a huge base, which is meant for giving space for the air inlet grill.
The distinctively strong body enlarges more spaces for a powerful fan motor, as well as adds an extra pre-filter. VEVA ProHEPA 9000 certainly matches the size of any console air purifiers that cost a lot more, for example Vornado AC550 or Sharp FP-K50UW. It has the height of 23 inches and the width of 17.7 inches, so make sure you will run this air purifier in a large room, because the newest air purifier doubles the size from the old 8000 Series model.
You get the traditional bottom-to-top air flow system concept, which draws the polluted air from the air inlet behind the front plate, through the air filtration system, and only the fresh air will come out from the top air outlet.
We have a control panel on front, which isn’t really my type. However, the control panel of VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is leaning a bit to top, so you can manage the device much easier.
Despite of the size, the VEVA ProHEPA 9000 weighs only 11 lbs. You can lift it to anywhere in your home.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Filters
You should notice that VEVA is a big manufacturer of air filter, which gives more credits for this section of VEVA ProHEPA 9000. As the latest model, the air purifier has add one extra air filter, to complete the 3-stage air cleaning system as below.
- Pre-filter – A washable and permanent pre-filter is used, to trap the large pollutants like dust, hair, pet dander and lint.
- Activated Carbon filter – The premium Activated Carbon filter removes odors from pets, smoking, cooking and more. It is said to trap even the small dust, to protect the next HEPA filter.
- True HEPA filter – The True HEPA filter of VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is graded H13, and it can capture 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, such as household dust, pet dander, mold spores, pollen, bacteria, germs, and PM2.5 particles.
Well, it is a trend to making air purifiers with 100% ozone-free, especially when it comes to this well-known air filter manufacturer. In real-world use, the HEPA filter must be replaced after 6-12 months, depending on use.
The VEVA ProHEPA 9000 has a similar performance with its brother, cleaning 99.9% of airborne particles down to 0.3 microns in our test of 1 hour. It was better than the Hunter HP600, LivePure Sierra and Filtrete FAP-C02WA-G2 in the same test, meaning the VEVA air purifier really works.
However, there is one raising complaint for the air purifier: you can’t find the official filter replacement for the VEVA ProHEPA 9000. It’s quite sad because VEVA is a great air filter manufacturer, and we hope to get one soon for our beloved air purifier.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Room Coverage
VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is said to cover a room of 600 square feet. But its fan power is just slightly better than the previous VEVA 8000 Elite Pro. So I believe the correct room coverage to be just 350 square feet.
The ACH of VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is 4X. This air purifier will exchange the air in your room 4 times per hour in recommended room size.
The CADR of VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is 135 cfm in general.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Sound
VEVA isn’t really good at trimming down the sound level of their air purifiers, and I don’t expect anything from this new VEVA ProHEPA 9000. Its noise level range fluctuate from 40 to 50 decibels (db) on low setting. Of course it is just like the library mode, so you won’t notice any sound from this air purifier.
Yeah, I know you want to use a portable air purifier while sleeping. But if you are a light sleeper, perhaps you should keep the fan speed on low setting.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Power Consumption
An air purifier is designed to run for a long time to be more efficient, making the high-priority question in Breathe Quality is: “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” To know the answer, we will need to check the power consumption of this air purifier.
VEVA ProHEPA 9000 has a power consumption of 75 watts, which is pretty high for an air purifier with such fan power. Of course, this isn’t an Energy Star air purifier or something similar.
For running a VEVA ProHEPA 9000 8 hours per day, you need to pay $27 each year.

VEVA ProHEPA 9000 Additional Features
It seems VEVA doesn’t commit to add any additional features for their air purifiers, as both the new VEVA ProHEPA 9000 and previous VEVA 8000 Elite Pro pack with nothing. Lucky we have a LED indicator for filter replacement in this new device, but… that’s all.
If you’re looking for air purifiers with lots of additional features, I recommend you to search the Levoit LV-PUR131S or RENPHO RP-AP001S. The Sharp FP-K50UW is also recommended, but it costs a bit higher.

For its price, the VEVA ProHEPA 9000 is a good buy for many people. It doesn’t offer much performance from the previous VEVA 8000 Elite Pro, but its official price is nearly the same. So, the conclusion is depended on your liking.
Higher power consumption and louder than the previous model, at higher cost, too.
