Three Reasons To Consider Getting An Air Purifier for Allergies

For allergy sufferers, every time of the year comes with challenges… spring pollen, autumn leaves, year-round pet dander. While air purifiers with True HEPA filters are often recommended to reduce allergy symptoms, no purifier can actually cure your allergies. So, what use is an air purifier in helping make life easier for allergy sufferers?

Let’s take a look at some common allergens and what an air purifier can do to minimize their impact on your health.


As much as you love your furry friends, they are often the cause of your sniffles and sneezes. Pets are constantly shedding their fur and pet dander which then floats all over the house, causing allergic reactions. 

An air purifier with a HEPA filter is 99.95% effective at removing particles down to .1 microns, meaning that dander and other allergens your pets bring in will be removed from your indoor air. 

If odors are a concern, look for a purifier that combines HEPA protection with an activated charcoal filter. 

Changing of the Seasons

As much as we may look forward to the changing of the season, seasonal allergies can cause a lot of misery. Unfortunately, nowhere is completely safe from allergens. Pollen can enter your home through doorways, windows, or even on your clothing. To make matters even worse, pollen season is lengthening and intensifying due to climate change. 

Fall can also aggravate allergies because the cooler weather encourages you to turn on the heat to warm up and your heating system may have mold or dust in the system.

Fortunately, a good air purifier can remove up to 99.95% of the pollutants in your air, making your home an oasis of easy breathing. 

Regular Cleaning Has Its Ups And Downs

As important as it is to keep your home clean, there are some things to keep in mind when it comes to cleaning and air quality

Stirring up Dust

Every time you clean, you are kicking dust up into your air, potentially triggering more allergic reactions. One way to help reduce the dust in your air is to vacuum immediately after dusting and cleaning surfaces.

Cleaning products

Many of the items we use to clean our homes are actually putting pollutants into our indoor air. 

Cleaners, sterilizers, and disinfectants all emit a variety of dangerous chemicals (known as volatile organic compounds or VOCs)including isopropyl alcohol and acetone into your home air. 

When these VOCs waft into your air, they can interact with other chemicals to produce harmful ozone and even PM2.5. 

PM2.5 are microscopic particles suspended in the air that can cause an array of serious health problems and even premature death. 

Air Fresheners

There’s nothing like a fresh scent to give your home that just-cleaned feeling. Unfortunately, the “clean, fresh” smell that air fresheners emit contains a cocktail of potentially hazardous air pollutants that can lower your air quality. Even so-called green and organic air fresheners can release hazardous air pollutants. 

In fact, air fresheners are so toxic that their emissions can even affect outdoor air quality and contribute to photochemical smog.

How Tax is calculated

The amount of tax charged on your order depends on many factors including the following:


  • The identity of the seller
  • The type of item or service purchased
  • The time and location of fulfillment


The shipment or delivery address of your order
These factors can change between the time you place an order and when your shipment is complete. As a result, the tax calculated on your order may change. We display an “Estimated Tax” to be collected at Check Out when confirming an order. The amounts displayed as estimated tax may then be updated later when your order is finalized and completed.


The tax rate applied to your order will be the combined state and local rates of the address where your order is delivered to or fulfilled from. For example, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see tax calculated on your order if shipped to another state. Moreover, the tax rates applied to your order may also be different for a variety of reasons, such as a shipment to a residential home versus a business address. Also, the total selling price of an item will generally include item-level shipping and handling charges, item level discounts, and gift wrapping charges. If applied at an order level, these charges, may be allocated to the individual items in an order.


If you are ordering from aeris and shipping to a country outside of the US, you may be charged the applicable country tax rate.
