Are you wondering what you can do to reduce your exposure to allergens in the air? Are you tired of dealing with irritating allergy flare-ups? Air purifiers can offer many benefits to those who suffer from allergies.
Benefits of an air purifier
The name says it all, air purifiers help remove contaminants from the air. Air purifiers can also remove triggers for asthma attacks, can trap cigarette smoke, tobacco, airborne asbestos particles, and other indoor allergens.
That sounds great, but isn’t that what air filters are for?
Changing your home’s air filters regularly can drastically improve your indoor air quality, but many homes need additional help. If you or someone in your household suffers from respiratory ailments such as allergies, asthma, common colds or viruses, then looking at an air purifier may be worthwhile.
What you need to consider when buying an air purifier
Now that you know the benefits of an air purifier, there are several factors you need to consider when purchasing one:
- Room size– You’ll need to consider the square footage of the room you want to purify. Sizes generally range from: small (up to 299 square feet), medium (between 300-699 square feet), large (between 700 and 1,900 square feet), and whole-house purification.
- Budget– Know how much money you can put towards an air purifier. This will help you narrow down the choices and make the decision that provides the best value for your money.
- Where to put your air purifier– When considering this, think about the room you spend most of the time in. For this reason, many opt for the bedroom because that is where they spend the most time when they are home.
- Air purifier filter type– There are generally three choices: HEPA (last about one year depending on use); carbon filters (last about 6 months); pre-filters (last 3 months)
Here are a few air purifiers we recommend:
