Site Name: Breathe Quality
Take a deep breath—if you can. Many of the things we do to keep energy costs down, such as fixing drafty doors and leaky windows, can also seal in pesky pollutants and irritants. Most people who buy air purifiers do so in hopes of easing asthma or allergies. But despite product claims, there's little definitive medical evidence that best air purifiers help to relieve respiratory symptoms.
Improving indoor air quality starts with minimizing pollutant sources such as cigarette smoke or dust and pet dander. We test how well a room air purifier removes dust and smoke from an enclosed space, how it performs at high and low speeds, and how quiet it is.
