Air purifier contains a fan, an air filter and often an ionizer or an ozone generator (the two are different). A humidifier has an evaporator to increase the humidity of the air.

I have a hepa filter I use in the corner of my room. It's a lifetime one. I only have to clean it maybe once every 6 months. For those who are looking for more info, check out this resource https://www.theolive.com/reviews/best-air-purifier-smoke/ . Pretty informative

Air purifier is to purify the air, not increase the moisture to the air like humidifier

Hi, Air purifiers and humidifiers have distinctive capacities. Air purifiers are perfect indoor air, however, do nothing for indoor stickiness levels. They expel residue and smoke from the air, and also allergenic substances like creature dander and dust. Humidifiers include water into the air, yet don't clean it.

I have air purifiers in every room of my house. I've tried several brands. Most larger air purifiers come with the humidifier option. When purchasing you need to consider the size of the room you want to use it, some are suitable for 10m2 and others for 25m2 etc. Also have the salesman show you how to open it up and clean it. Some are completely washable whereas others you need to buy disposable filters for. LG is the easiest to buy filters for as they always have them in stock at the Lg shop in the mall. I've found certain LG models, hitachi and sharp easy to clean. All the pieces are numbered and it's written what you wash with water and what you just brush dry. One older LG model (I gave it away) was overly complicated to clean and I had trouble closing it, it opened like a cassette player. So the best thing is to test it out in the shop. I really think they make a difference improving the air quality. My filters are always looking really dusty so I'm sure it does something.
