It’s allergy season, and if spring is less about sunshine and more about itchy, red eyes for your kids, they're part of the 50 million people who experience allergies every year. If you’re looking for a new plan of attack, you might have the much-hyped air purifier on your list. But it’s hard to figure out where to start, let alone which filters work best.
One thing you’ll want to look for is a HEPA filter, which is a type of air filter that traps irritants, such as pollen, dust and pet dander, and removes them from the air. In order to qualify as HEPA in the U.S., an air purifier must remove 99.97 percent of particles that pass through it. Most air purifiers have a HEPA filter, but they are an absolute must for anyone battling allergies.
With price tags running from $30 to $1,000-plus, we narrowed your search to a few affordable options that have rave reviews.
