For many, spring is a time of butterflies and blossoms. For others, it’s the most horrible season of all thanks to the impending doom of allergies. There’s seemingly no escape from the coughing and wheezing. While being outside is horrible, you still feel the negative effects of allergens in your home, too.
Besides allergens, the air in your home also contains germs, mold, bacteria, viruses, dander, smoke and more. All of these are either irritating to your lungs or downright smelly. Add in this age of viral pandemics, and the air purifier could become an ever-present appliance in most homes.
The only real way to rid the air in your home of these tiny particles is to use an air purifier. These machines work by pulling air through a series of filters that eliminate the bad bits (allergens, smoke, odors, germs, mold, etc.) and leave only healthy, clean air particles behind.
One of the following five options are sure to be the best option for your home and any dirty air finding its way inside.
1. GENIANI Home Air Purifier
Quite compact for an air purifier, the GENIANI Home Air Purifier offers 3-in-1 filtration and a true HEPA filter for getting rid of all the allergens in any room in your home. This device boasts three speeds and a night light for a relaxing gentle glow in the darkness. Finally, this quiet air purifier is also accompanied by a two-year warranty and lifetime customer support.
2. Pure Enrichment PureZone
The Pure Enrichment PureZone air purifier is as capable as all the rest of the devices on this list.

3. Airthereal Pure Morning Air Purifier
The Airthereal Pure Morning Air Purifier is a 7-in-1 device. That means it has seven different filters through which the air in your home will pass. These are the pre-filter, the true HEPA filter and the activated carbon filter, which also contains a nano mineral filter, cold catalyst filter, photocatalyst filter and a molecular sieve. The included UV-C LED helps to kill mold, bacteria and viruses and has a lifespan over five years under normal use. The filters in this device do need to be replaced every six to eight months, but the indicator light will tell you exactly when a change is needed.
4. Guardian Technologies GermGuardian
With a name like “GermGuardian,” you know this air purifier means business. The included HEPA filter can capture 99.97% of dust and allergens in your home. That includes pet dander, mold spores and plant pollens as small as three microns. In addition, the charcoal filter reduces common odors, like those from pets or smoking. And the optional UV-C light reduces airborne bacteria and viruses, keeping you healthier year-round. The 22-inch, three speed tower can circulate the air in a room of up to 167 square feet four times per hour.

Plus, the purifier boasts an optional UV-C light sterilizer and an ionizer for killing even more viruses and bacteria. Probably the most impressive feature is the automatic air flow system, which uses an advanced sensor to monitor air quality and adjust the fan speed for a healthier environment.
