Air purifiers: what are they and do you really need one? Well, if you can’t stop sneezing, your home is stale and stuffy, or perhaps it is particularly dusty, then the answer is yes. An air purifier is a great way to clean the air, helping to filter out the majority of airborne allergens, remove unpleasant smells and reduce the amount of dust. Perhaps you have a pet at home? A quality air purifier can dramatically reduce pet dander and odour.
A quick google search reveals that there is an abundance of air purifiers on the market, with prices running from less than £50 to several hundred pounds. To help narrow down your search, it is good to know that not all air purifiers are created equal. This is certainly true of the new LA502 Smart Air Purifier from LIFAair, which comes equipped with a small, easily portable LIFAsmart monitor-controller (pictured right) that not only measures multiple pollutant levels – detecting whether contamination exceeds unhealthy levels – but can be placed anywhere, measuring the air quality wherever you go.
