Save up to $150: Multiple air purifiers are on sale this Cyber Monday:
A breath of fresh air is hard to come by these days — and when we do get one, it’s often through a mask.
People with indoor allergies (like mold and dust mites) may be struggling extra hard as a result of spending more time stuck inside, while folks with asthma may be paying more attention to those symptoms than they were in years past. Fewer cars being on the road doesn’t dismiss the fact that air quality in the U.S. is “dramatically declining,” according to the 2020 State of the Air report released in April.
At a time when we’re all hyper-aware of the airborne nasties we’re ingesting, an air purifier just sounds like a wise investment — and a ton are on sale for Cyber Monday. We’re seeing deals from high-tech best-sellers like Dyson and Molekule, plus models from Blueair, Toshiba, and GermGuardian for under $100.
While you shouldn’t buy an air purifier expecting it to prevent the spread of coronavirus, an air purifier can offer some peace of mind (and possibly less sneezing) while living with the restrictions.
Meet the best year-round companion you could ask for. The immediately-recognizable O-shaped design swaps blades for air jets that create a powerful stream of uninterrupted air. Jet Focus technology allows you to choose whether that hot or cool air shoots directly at you or provides a more diffused cloud for the room.
BEST FOR KIDS’ ROOMS: Molekule Air Mini+ — $399.99 (save $100)
Filtration type: PECO
250 square feet
There’s so much more to air purifying than HEPA. The PECO filter found in Molekule’s cute purifiers, for instance, is coated with a proprietary catalyst that breaks down VOCs, viruses, allergens, and other pollutants when activated by light. The Molekule Air Mini+ uses a sensor to regulate fan speed based on the particles in the air, and does so while staying below 30 decibels.
BUDGET PICK: Toshiba 3-in-1 Smart Air Purifier — $79.99 (save $20)
Breathe easier in your largest room for less than $100 with this tower purifier from Toshiba. It tackles unwanted particles in three ways: the classic HEPA filter, a UV light sanitizer, and a carbon filter for neutralizing odors and eliminating larger particles as they come in. To turn it on or change the setting, ask Alexa or use the app — the Alexa-enabled Dash program also facilitates ordering filter replacements.
