If you haven’t yet bought an air purifier for your home, it might be a good idea to consider getting one. Pollution and respiratory allergies are on the rise and if you have children or pets at home, an air purifier is a sound investment for the health of the family. An average person takes 1,200 breaths an hour, 28,800 breaths a day and 10,512,000 breaths a year. Bearing in mind that you would not even drink unfiltered and dirty water, why do you allow yourself and your loved ones to inhale stale and dirty air at home?

Air purifiers clean the air by filtering and trapping dust, smoke, pet fur, mould, dust mites and germs from the air and producing clean and fresh air in the house or office. Here are some leading HEPA air purifiers to consider as a new addition to your home or office for better air quality and health.
