The best air purifiers to remove dust and allergens from your home

Allergy season is here. For some people, it is always here. While common allergens such as pollen and grass do affect people seasonally, allergens such as household dust can cause year-round discomfort. Stagnant indoor air can make those allergies even worse.

An air purifier can help allergy symptoms, whether they’re seasonal or perennial. Instead of entering your body, airborne particles instead enter the air filter, leaving you with crisp, clean air in your home.

A HEPA filter is key when shopping for an air purifier, like the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde.

The key to the best air quality is finding a purifier with a True HEPA filter. These filters can “remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency. (For comparison, standard HEPA filters remove 99% of particles as small as 2 microns.)

Below, find the best air purifiers for your home with HEPA filtration from Dyson, Molekule, Coway and more, just in time for allergy season. From splurge-worthy to budget-conscious, these air purifiers may just offer you clean air that will bring relief.
