Verywell Family independently researches, tests, reviews, and recommends the best products available on the market. The Verywell Family Review Board includes board-certified physicians and family health experts who vet the articles, and healthcare professionals review articles for medical accuracy so we are particularly pleased that CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® air cleaners are top of three of their categories:
Best for Asthma is LG PuriCare 360-Degree Single Air Purifier with Clean Booster
Best With Wi-Fi Connection is Rabbit Air MinusA2 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier
Best for Allergies is Dyson Purifier Humidify Cool
Verywell Family consults Medical experts as part of their process and in this case they consulted our CEO Dr. John McKeon
“If you have children in your household, you may want to consider an air purifier with a true HEPA filter,” says John McKeon, MD, CEO and founder of Allergy Standards Limited (ASL). “These are highly effective at removing small particles, such as pollen, pet dander, and dust mites, which can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms in some individuals. You may also want to look for an air purifier with a low noise level [dB], as children may be more sensitive to loud noises.”
In the article Dr. McKeon also recommends to look for an air purifier that has a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter as these filters can remove at least 99.9 percent of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.1-0.3 microns (µm). Some air purifiers have a HEPA and charcoal or carbon filter, which can be especially helpful in removing gas and odor from the air.
The CERTIFIED air cleaners have passed rigorous scientific testing in our laboratories. In the case of air cleaners, we test the product in an environmentally-controlled chamber, using test dust that contains allergens. It is important that the air cleaner can remove allergens from the air, and that these are captured in the filter of the air cleaner. Different allergens act differently in the air, because they have different sizes and features. Our standard addresses these issues.
