Buying an air purifier takes a bit of research. It has an important job, keeping clean the air that you and your family breathe. Thanks to a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, an air purifier works hard to reduce up to 99 percent of common allergens and odours. But don’t just take our word for it: We’ve done the research and compiled a cheat sheet of benefits, so you don’t have to (you’re welcome).
Reduces pet dander
Sure, your dog is the cutest, but he’s packing some questionable fur and dander that you don’t want around all the time while you breathe.
Helps banish odours
Maybe you love roasted cabbage, but not everyone on the block needs to smell it. Your air purifier will lend a hand sucking up all the stinky smells. And not just food, either—think sweaty hockey gear, smelly shoes, general teenage scents, etc.
Back off pollution
An air purifier can reduce some of the pollutants in your home. Say, for example, that you live in a high-rise apartment or your home is adjacent to a busy street or highway or the people next door smoke and it wafts into your home—your air purifier is on it.
Reduces indoor pollen
If you struggle with pollen and other airborne allergens, you know that being indoors can sometimes make your life harder (you can thank the lingering outdoor pollens that may have landed in your hair or clothing). The good news is, an air purifier will play a starring role in helping to reduce the allergen count and help you breathe cleaner air.
Get a good night sleep
The connection is simple. When you go to sleep in a room virtually free of airborne allergens, you’re going to have a deeper and more restful sleep.
It might sound silly, but clean air really does improve your overall happiness. An air purifier can help you feel better overall, by providing clean air to breathe, have higher energy levels and better concentration. And who wouldn’t want that?
