Chances are if you clean your home regularly you may think you’re set. Sure wiping hard surfaces with a disinfectant is great but have you ever stopped to think about what you can’t see? The fact is our homes are plagued with common pollutants that are invisible to the naked eye. Pollutants like pollen, pet dander, dust, and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) are affecting the air you breathe. The good news is air purifiers can remove a significant amount of those pollutants in your home, returning fresh air that’s healthier for you and your family.
Dyson takes air purification high tech. Their purifying fan senses pollutants in the air such as allergens, VOCs and nitrogen dioxide. Pollutants are captured in a sealed HEPA filter and purified air is pushed back out into the room. The Dyson Pure Cool is Alexa-enabled and smart home compatible, allowing you to remotely control your machine and set schedules as needed.
Coway has a four-stage filtration system: pre-filter, deodorization filter, true HEPA filter, and vital ion all of which work together to capture 99.7% of particles and pollutants in the air. In addition to pollen, the Coway filter reduces other allergens and VOC’s, and it reduces odor. The Coway pollution sensor can deliver real-time air quality assessments and also has a filter lifetime indicator.
If you’re battling allergies and asthma you may want to consider the RabbitMinus A2, which has been certified allergy and asthma friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. HEPA filtration and six-stage purification work in concert to actually remove bio-allergens not just redistribute them. The RabbitAir MinusA2 is wall mountable and looks pretty sleek to boot.
The Winix air purifier is highly rated on Amazon and for good reason, it checks a lot of boxes. Affordably priced under $150, the Winix True HEPA filters capture 99.7% of air pollutants like dust mites, pet dander, and pollen. The washable carbon filter works to remove odors while the Plasmawave serves as the permanent filter consistently breaking down odors, allergens, and VOCs. Smart sensors check air quality and adjust as needed. The unit also features a sleep mode for quiet operation whenever you need it.
