The air in your home can get stale — or worse, it can become drenched in dust, pollen, pet dander, and various pollutants. Since you probably don’t want to open your windows this time of year, consider adding an air purifier to your home. You don’t need to have allergies or asthma to benefit from this. In addition to removing indoor pollutants, air purifiers trap many airborne viral pathogens, meaning you’re less likely to get sick. Experts often recommend having one in your bedroom. Also consider another one in a common area like the living room or kitchen (an air purifier is great for getting rid of cooking smells). Below are shoppers’ favorite models so you can make the best choice for your home.

Veva Pro HEPA 9000


Great deal alert: Until tomorrow, when you buy this top-rated model, you get another one for free! The 4-in-1 medical-grade machine purifies fits up to 600 square feet. For best results, the manufacturer recommends replacing the filters every two to six months.

Right now, you can score a free Veva Circular air purifier when you purchase the top-rated Veva 9000 air purifier with Yahoo’s exclusive code: BLACKBOGO1 (for a black model) and WHITEBOGO1 (for white). Air purifiers are only designed to cover a certain range, the Environmental Protection Agency points out — if you get more than one, you can get coverage in several rooms at once. But you want to act fast because this sale ends tomorrow.

Shoppers are discovering that big things come in small packages when it comes to the purifying power of the Veva. “Don’t let the compactness of this unit fool you! The Veva ProHEPA 9000 air purifier is definitely the real thing,” exclaimed one owner. “I noticed a big improvement in the air in the back rooms of my house on the second day of use. Bravo, Veva!”

It uses a three-stage filter to catch the nasties – a pre-filter, an activated carbon filter and finally a true HEPA filter. A built-in UV-C light provides an extra layer of hygiene. Moreover, it is energy efficient, so that your bill does not suddenly skyrocket. Did we mention it has over 13,000 five-star reviews on Amazon?

Not surprisingly, the whisper-quiet gadget has many fans among the snoring community. “I love the clean look, easy controls and instructions,” commented one customer. “I can breathe much better too. My husband stopped snoring at night and it’s whisper quiet! I love that it blows air from above and not from the sides like most air purifiers. This is a keeper. I love it !”

Coway Airmega AP-1512HHA


Designed for rooms up to 874 square feet, this small air purifier is perfect for use in a bedroom or smaller living room.

$193 at Amazon

The Coway Airmega AP-1512HH (aka the Coway Mighty) comes in with over 18,000 5-star reviews on Amazon. There is a good reason for its popularity. The 4-stage filtration system can capture and reduce up to 99.97 percent of particulate matter, including volatile organic compounds and odors in addition to standard pollens and pollutants. The pre-filter is washable, while the True HEPA filter is replaceable. The LED lights up in different colors depending on the quality of your air, and the auto mode automatically optimizes the fan speed based on that quality level.

“This is unbelievable,” said one customer. “How have I ever lived without it before? The automatic mode really works! We have an open floor plan 1600 square foot home. The kitchen, living room, dining room, foyer and breakfast room are all open… We don’t come home to a house that smells like what we cooked.”

Coway Airmega 200M


Perfect for a home office or smaller space, this air purifier will allow you to breathe easily even in the stuffiest of summer air.

If your aesthetic is more retro than contemporary, you’ll want to consider the Coway Airmega 200M. It has all the same performance features as the Coway Airmega AP-1512HH, but the design is not as sleek and modern. The Airmega 200M is suitable for rooms up to 35 square meters and has a 4-stage filter system and LEDs that indicate the indoor air quality.

“I’m already obsessed with it. Only used it for a few weeks, but I can already see a difference! I suffer from severe allergies, mainly from dust.
The device is next to my chair when we watch TV. In Echo mode, it feels when the air quality is bad. When it was first plugged in, it ran almost constantly! Now, a few weeks later, it runs very occasionally. Already an improvement! Very quiet. Love it. Highly recommended!”

Coway Airmega 400(G)


You can now rest – your search for a whole home air purifier is over. This beast can cover up to 1,560 square feet in just half an hour, reducing 99% of the odor from a room.

$444 at Amazon

For those with larger homes and open floor plans, we recommend the Coway Airmega 400. It works with rooms up to 1,560 square feet and cleans the air at least twice an hour, even in the largest spaces. The Max2 filtration system, which combines both an activated carbon filter and a True HEPA filter, can capture and reduce 99.97 percent of the tiny particles that include dust, pollen and harmful volatiles. This model has five fan speeds and an LED ring that changes color depending on the air quality.

“I bought this for the sole purpose of allergies. From the day after I turned it on, I haven’t sneezed once and the allergies have essentially disappeared. I can’t believe how much better I feel. I really feel the difference in the air in my house,” wrote one customer. “Without the indicator lights, you wouldn’t even know it was on 99 percent of the time. At medium fan speed you can barely hear it and at high speed you can hear it, but it’s much quieter than a standard fan in the house.”

BlueAir bedroom


This air purifier helps you breathe easier and sleep better while working as quietly as possible.

$220 at Amazon

Those who value form as much as function will love the Blueair Blue Pure 311. Its Scandinavian, modern look matches its impressive performance. The Pure 311 is recommended for medium-sized rooms, making it ideal for many bedrooms, kitchens and family rooms. It eliminates odors and removes 99.97 percent of airborne pollutants, including viruses and fine particles from wildfires. In addition, the fabric pre-filter cover is washable and available in five colors (colors other than dark gray are sold separately).

“Bought this air purifier before starting a remodeling project, anticipating more dust,” said one reviewer. “Plus, I have cats and dogs in the house, so I thought it would be helpful in general. After researching air purifiers thoroughly, I went with Blueair and am glad I did!”

Levit Core 400S


Don’t let the size fool you; this little monster can purify a 400 square foot room five times an hour.

$189 at Amazon

If you want an air purifier with some smarts, consider the Levoit Core 400S. You connect it to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant and operate it via voice commands. The app allows you to control the 400S remotely whether you are at home or not. You can also create schedules so that it runs at specific times. Most importantly, the three-stage True HEPA filtration system can capture both large and small particles.

“This is a healing machine!” exclaimed one Amazon shopper. “This thing has eliminated our allergies and asthma symptoms. We keep the unit in the center of the house in the kitchen/dinette. And this is capable of ridding our entire house of pet and cigarette odors within an hour at speed 4. Keep in mind that it’s rated for a 403-square-foot room, but it has no problem covering much larger spaces. The filter that came with the box still works fine.
