Spring has officially sprung and we just got hit with a massive wave of pollen in Atlanta, which means seasonal allergies has also joined the chatroom.
You may already be using the allergy season staples – a humidifier, Zyrtec, nettle tea, saline spray, a Netipot, and other home remedies, but there is one thing I always ask my friends – do you use an air purifier? The answer is usually a collective “no, what’s the difference between a purifier and a humidifier?”
So today I am going to give you all the details on my favorite home device and why I keep it on year round.
What Is An Air Purifier?
Put simply, an air purifier is an appliance that helps clean the air in your space by capturing impurities that come in your home like dust, pet dander, and odor. We live and breathe primarily in the comfort of our homes, especially now, so certain pollutants are more concentrated in your space compared to outdoor air. Are air purifiers some perfect cure-all bacteria killing machine? Not 100%. But a high-quality one with a HEPA filter is an amazing option for asthma and allergy sufferers like myself.
So to wrap it up – air purifiers capture particles in the air via a filter and internal fan to suck in the nasty stuff. Pretty cool, right?
My Favorite Air Purifier
I love this air purifier so much – and it is NOT sponsored. My brother actually got it for me as a Christmas gift because he knew how much I would love it. It’s super durable (I’ve had it for over two years) and the only thing I do is change the air filter every 3 months. This might be gross, but I love opening the filter and seeing how disgusting it is – that’s something satisfied knowing that it’s actually working.
Other Reasons I Love It
You can’t beat this price point with a True HEPA filtration
It’s not annoyingly loud (it has three fan settings)
It’s sleek and super durable
My purifier came from Bed Bath and Beyond (currently on sale), but we buy the filters on Amazon.
For the Lux Buyer
If you’re in the financial position to invest in a more expensive purifier, I highly recommend this one or the mini version would be amazing for back to the office to eliminate covid and flu germs. This brand has amazing data results and FDA-clearance.
