Also known as air cleaners, air purifiers remove particles, allergens, odors, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful airborne impurities using specialized filters, sterilizing heat, or germ-killing ultraviolet light. Once air passes through an air cleaner's purifying element, a high-efficiency fan propels the clean air into your room. For as long as your air purifier is powered on, this cycle continues, creating a cleaner, healthier breathing environment for everyone in your space.
Traditional filtered air purifiers are designed to remove allergen particles such as dust, pollen, mold spores, ragweed, and pet dander. More sophisticated air cleaner models offer the added benefit of removing odors, gas fumes, chemical traces, and smoke. In addition, a newer class of air purifiers includes models designed to remove illness-causing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.
Your first step in choosing an air purifier is selecting a model with a purification system designed to address your specific problem. Next, determine the size you need for your space and the features you prefer. Air purifiers are typically rated by the square footage of the space you want to purify, and many include user-friendly features such as programmable timers, remote controls, filter replacement indicators, and caster wheels for easy mobility.
