Air purifiers

Hot and humid weather can be tough if you suffer from hay fever and asthma, so an air purifier can be the perfect partner for you. Instead of cooling the air, these products clear it. They trap harmful allergens like pollen and dust mites, so they’re ideal for combatting the effects of summer time. Purifiers force air through a fine mesh that captures even the tiniest particles to give you clean, pure air. Some models come with a HEPA filter that traps 99.95% of pollutants, including harmful gases from cooking and scented candles, so your home feels fresher than ever. Find out how a HEPA filter works here.
