Fresh, clean air. You need it, but the environment doesn't always provide it.
If you've suffered long enough with sinus problems, allergies, or headaches due to pollutants in the air, it's time for an air purifier. Our top pick is the Coway Mighty Air Purifier.
Common pollutants inside your home can include molds and fungi spores, bacteria and viruses, pollen, cigarette smoke, volatile organic compounds (VOCs emitted from carpeting, paint, and other construction materials), dust and pet dander, and fumes from air fresheners and other cleaning supplies.Air purifiers remove some or most of those pollutants from your indoor air. They work by drawing room air in and through a filter or combination of filters, then blowing out fresh, clean air.
A good air purifier removes allergens, dust, gases, and other pollutants from the room air, leaving behind clean air for your lung's benefit. There are a lot of air purifiers on the market, though, and that's why we did the hard work for you.
