Air purifiers help get those pesky pollutants, allergens, dust, cooking odors and mold out of the air at your home. If you’ve got allergies, an air purifier is considered essential by your eyes and nose. As amazing as these air purifiers are, they take up a lot of room and are pretty bulky. If you want an air purifier but don’t have the space to accommodate it, we’ve got some smaller air purifier options for you. Or perhaps, you want an air purifier that you could take on road trips or to your office. We rounded up the best portable air purifiers for you.
Our three picks remove up to 99 percent of impurities from the air with their filters. They might not be able to purify half of your house like larger air purifiers, but they can filter out air in specific rooms or your cubicle. Two of our choices have a three-filter system, while another option has three different speeds and an ionizer. All of our picks tout that they’re the strong and silent type. Having one of these air purifiers isn’t like having a fan. You won’t have to shout over your air purifier. You might barely notice that these air purifiers are running.
