Do air purifiers help allergies?

An air purifier can’t cure you of allergies, but it can be used as one tool to help bring relief to allergy sufferers. Using an air purifier can reduce the amount of pollen in your household in addition to reducing dust, mites, and mold. This alone does not relieve or cure allergies, but it can create an environment more conducive to giving your immune system a break. In other words, an air purifier can help alleviate some of the impurities in the air that can exacerbate allergies.

The most effective type of air purifier is the HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) which uses a filter that collects a majority of these airborne particles. HEPA air filters can be purchased from most companies that provide home air and heating services.
