Although air purifiers are by no means a cure for asthma, they help to remove the allergens and particles which can trigger symptoms. If you are asthmatic, an air purifier can help you breathe more easily by improving indoor air quality.
The best air purifiers for asthma remove the particles and allergens from the air which can trigger symptoms. By effectively cleaning the air of particles, you reduce the airborne triggers from entering your lungs. Even though you cannot see them, these particles would otherwise be inhaled into your lungs and may trigger wheezing and other associated symptoms.
We've selected a range of asthma air purifiers below which will improve your air quality at home. Even non-asthmatic family members and house-mates will feel the benefit of breathing in pure air. Make sure you choose an appropriate model for your room size to ensure efficient air cleaning - we've included information on recommended room size on each product.
Certain allergenic particles which can trigger symptoms are very tiny and airborne, such as house dust mite faeces. For this reason, we recommend choosing an air purifier which deals with microscopic impurities.
