The Best Air Purifiers of 2020

Friday, 27 March 2020  |  Frances

With many of us spending more time indoors than previous generations and houses being more tightly sealed than before, we're likely being exposed to unhealthy levels of indoor pollutants every day. You may spend time making sure the floors and surfaces of your house are clean, all the while overlooking the quality of the air you breathe. So what can you do to clean the air in your home?

The Best Air Purifiers of 2020

Alongside other short-term methods, you may want to consider investing a good air purifier. These devices work by removing toxins and other harmful particles from the atmosphere before circulating purified air back into the room. Beurer are known for producing incredibly versatile, high-quality air purifiers, so our experts have put together this guide of the best models available on the market.

Are Air Purifiers Effective?

Air purifiers have been shown to be effective at sanitising the air, combating pollutants, allergens and toxins. They are different from humidifiers and air fresheners as they take particles out of the air rather than expelling them. Some purifiers also go a step further than air filters, sanitising the particles in the air instead of just removing them.

How Can An Air Purifier Help Me?

Allergens and indoor mould particles aren't the only things that can aggravate health concerns like asthma. Additionally, your home may harbour irritants produced by household items like cleaning or cosmetic products, which you may not realise are having an effect on your respiratory health. Such environments can impact your health in numerous ways, and may even be making it more difficult for you to fall and stay asleep.

What Else Can I Do To Improve Air Quality?

As well as using a purifier, you can freshen up the air in your home by:

  • Keeping your rooms ventilated by opening your windows for 5-10 minutes multiple times a day, particularly after cooking or showering
  • Preventing condensation build-up by addressing any leaks or water damage, removing any mould and hanging your washing outside
  • Maintaining a comfortable temperature, ideally at around 18°C (although you may want to increase this in winter).

Our Pick for Best Air Purifier

Beurer LR330 2-In-1 Comfort Air Purifier

Beurer LR330 2-In-1 Comfort Air PurifierThe Beurer LR330 2-In-1 Comfort Air Purifier is our top pick for best all-round air purification. It utilises a three-layer filter system. Air particles go through a pre-filter which removes coarse dust, dirt and hairs, followed by a HEPA filter for filtering bacteria, viruses, mites, pollen and fine dust, and finally an activated carbon filter for combating gases and unpleasant smells. You can also set the humidity of your air with this device to match you ideal air preference.

Key Features: Three-layer filtration system removes bacteria, mould, dirt, pollen and dust; reduces bad odours; doubles as humidifer

Best Air Purifier for Getting to Sleep

Beurer LR310 Air Purifier

Beurer LR310 Air PurifierFor better air quality at night, you may be interested in the Beurer LR310 Air Purifier. It features a timer function and super quiet interruption, so it won't disturb you once you've gone to sleep. It is just as effective at purifying air as the other models in this list, can help relieve symptoms of asthma and allergies, and can create a relaxing, stress-free environment so you can enjoy a peaceful, cleansing rest.

Key Features: 99.5% efficacy at removing harmful particles from the air; extra-quiet operation for nighttime use; creates a peaceful sleeping environments

Best Air Purifier for Smaller Houses

Beurer LR200 Compact Air Purifier

Beurer LR200 Compact Air PurifierThe Beurer LR200 Compact Air Purifier is slightly smaller than other models and is effective in rooms 28m x 28m. Thanks to its compact size, it is easier to move around your home so you can enjoy fresh air in more than one room. Alongside it's three-layer filter design, it has an additional ion function that attracts particles for maximum air cleansing.

Key Features: 99.5% efficacy at removing harmful particles from the air; compact design for easier transportation; extra ion function

Breathe Easy

These air purifiers can drastically improve the quality of your life and the comfort of your home, no matter which model you choose. Still, it's important that you take other steps like increasing ventilation to make sure the air you breathe is as fresh as possible. Additionally, it's important to remember that an air purifier won't neutralise all of the particles in your home as some can sit on surfaces or get into your bedding. 

Air purifiers are therefore best used as a complimentary measure alongside other methods for fighting indoor toxins.
