TIME: The Best Air Purifiers for Healthier Living

TIME: The Best Air Purifiers for Healthier Living


In a recent TIME magazine article, Arnold Carreiro delves into the complexities of choosing the right air purifier amidst a sea of options. Air purifiers offer a straightforward solution for removing unseen pet dander, mildew, and other particulates, significantly improving indoor air quality. However, the vast array of brands, sizes, and models can make the search for the perfect purifier daunting. After extensive research and testing, Carreiro presents a curated list of this year’s most efficient and effective air purifiers, highlighting two models that are CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®.


TIME recommends LG PuriCare 360

First on the list is the LG PuriCare 360. LG have taken a portfolio approach to certification and this is just one of a wide range of household appliances that have achieved the asthma & allergy friendly® mark. Recently, LG received the “Smart Connected Healthier Homes Award” for its innovative approach to certification across multiple product categories, including laundry, air care, and floor care.

An excerpt from the TIME article explains:

While there are many air purifiers that do a great job of removing pollutants from the air, people with severe allergies and asthma need a superior model that will live up to the lofty claims of its manufacturer. Thankfully the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) puts air purifiers through rigorous testing and if a device meets or exceeds their high standards, it receives an asthma and allergy friendly certification.

TIME reached out to our CEO Dr. John McKeon for expert advice on air purifiers:

Dr. John McKeon, CEO of Allergy Standards Limited, said “LG’s PuriCare 360 Air Purifier is CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®. This means that they were independently tested and confirmed to meet the standards set by AAFA and ASL, to improve indoor air quality and remove triggers of asthma and allergy, which means:

– The air purifier must be able to remove 90% of allergen in an environmental chamber test.

– The allergen must be captured by the product filter, rather than redistributed on room surfaces.

– The air purifier must not produce ozone, or if ozone is produced it must be below Code of Federal Regulations limits.

– These standards ensure air cleaners properly capture small particles and reduce exposure to asthma and allergy triggers.”


TIME recommends Rabbit Air

The article also features Rabbit Air, another recent award recipient. Rabbit Air was honored with the “Supporting Healthier Communities Award,” recognizing its commitment to promoting healthier living environments for individuals with asthma and allergies.

The TIME article describes the Rabbit Air A3 as follows:

“Thankfully the A3 is more than a pretty face; this premium air purifier utilizes a HEPA filter that removes 99.7% of particulate from the air, including dust and dust mites, pet dander, pollen, bacteria, and commonplace household VOCs such as vehicle exhaust and greenhouse gasses. Between its six-stage filtration system, powerful fan that quickly purifies rooms, and user-friendly app for continuously monitoring air quality, Rabbit Air’s certified Asthma & Allergy friendly A3 is one of the best air purifiers available for people suffering from severe allergies. I’m also a big fan of how Rabbit Air offers four different types of air filters to best-suit different environments. I’ve tested the Pet Allergy model, and it’s extremely effective at capturing eye-watering pet dander, free-floating fuzz, and animal odors. Germ Defense, Toxic Absorber, and Odor Remover alternate filters are also available.”

This comprehensive guide in TIME magazine by Arnold Carreiro is invaluable for anyone seeking to improve their indoor air quality with the most effective and validated air purifiers available.
