let's CLEAR THE AIR
Air purifiers have gotten an upgrade. There’s real-time monitoring, Bluetooth capabilities, and new filters that pick up smaller pollutants than ever.
Dust, dander, mold, smoke, germs, and harmful chemicals are hanging around in the air inside your house. These can be especially irritating for people with allergies, asthma, or immune system issues. Enter air purifiers. They can help eliminate gases and particles. When you buy, focus on what’s important to you: whisper-quiet operation, smart features, room size, efficiency, or the cost of replacing filters.
BUT FIRST, CLEAN
Pure air starts with cleaning: Dust, vacuum, repeat.
THEN CHECK YOUR HVAC FILTERS
Replace filters with the most efficient models your brand recommends. Look for a high MERV rating.
