With today's increased use of insulation in home and office construction, much less air is exchanged with the outside. As a result, odors and chemical vapors can build up in your indoor environment. An odor can simply be an annoyance or it can significantly affect your quality of life. Similarly, chemical off-gassing from polyurethane floors, fresh paints, plastics, or from new building materials can also irritate existing allergy symptoms and cause new ones to develop. When you shop for an air purifier to remove odors and chemicals, you'll want one with a large amount of carbon. This material absorbs gases and odors from the air and prevents them from returning. All of our bestselling air purifiers featured below include heavy-duty carbon filtration to eliminate harmful chemicals and odors and help you breathe healthier.
Typically, the larger the amount of carbon in the unit, the more odors and chemical vapors the unit can remove from the air before the filter will need to be replaced. Some odor and chemical air purifiers also feature additional enhancements to remove allergen particles such as dust, pollen, and mold spores. These models give you the best of both worlds, relief from allergies and a fresher, chemical-free environment.
