I’ve Tested Over a Dozen Air Purifiers and These Are My Favorites
Air pollution is a serious problem, and believe it or not, indoor air quality can be much worse than the air outside. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), single or repeated exposure to a pollutant, such as tobacco products, household cleaning products, and even excess moisture, can cause irritation, dizziness, headaches, and fatigue. Long-term effects can include respiratory ailments and other types of diseases. So even if you live in a relatively unpolluted area, you can still be impacted by poor indoor air quality.
Personally, secondhand smoke is my kryptonite, and I swear I can smell it a quarter of a mile away. In addition, dust, pollen, and pet dander are some of the common indoor air pollutants that can wreak havoc on your system if you’re either sensitive or allergic to such contaminants. The most effective way to improve your air quality? Invest in an air purifier. Over the past few years I’ve tried over a dozen small, medium, and large air purifiers, and I have some thoughts on which ones are the best (after all, they don’t come cheap). If you’re ready to splurge on one for your household, these six options are my absolute favorites.
