Dealing with pollen, pet dander or wildfire smoke? If you’ve got allergies and outdoor pollutants to battle this season, having an air purifier in your home is always a good idea. And since a few top-rated favorites, including the Dyson Purifier Cool™ TP07 ($650; $570) and Molekule Air Mini+ ($350; $275), are currently on sale, now is the best time to grab one.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these handy appliances are designed to reduce indoor air pollution through a filtration system, using either fibrous physical filters or electronic ones to remove irritating—or downright harmful—particles from the air in your home. Which, FYI, can be even more polluted than the air outside, per research from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. As for whether or not air purifiers *actually* work? We’ve done the research and can give them a PureWow thumbs up.

This super sleek hybrid option is both an air purifier and a fan in one, so it cleans *and* cools the environment in your space. Its advanced HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns, per the brand. And the “smart” in its name is no joke—it automatically senses fluctuations in air quality and adjusts accordingly, while reporting pollution levels in real time on its LCD screen and on the MyDyson app. Reviewers say it’s exceptionally quiet and they love that they can control it remotely from the app or with voice commands via Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri and Google Home.

If you’ve got a large area to cover, this powerful purifier is your best bet. It cleans up to 1,850 square feet per hour (or 388 square feet five times per hour) using a HEPA-13 filter with a carbon layer that captures 99.97 percent of dust, dander, smoke and other impurities, while reducing unwanted smells. It also boasts advanced plasma ion technology, which electrically charges the air particles to better collect contaminants. An intelligent sensor monitors the air quality all day to automatically adjust its fan speed, so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of it yourself. Although it lights up to display the current air situation (white for good, red for bad), night mode turns them off and lowers noise so you can rest (and breathe) easy.

A great choice for smaller rooms (up to 250 square feet), this compact filter is FDA-cleared to banish bacteria and viruses, and trap 95 percent of particles 0.3-1 micron in size. It utilizes Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) nanotechnology to purify the air and is “whisper quiet” on the lower settings, according to the brand and reviewers. It’s also super lightweight and comes complete with a vegan leather handle to conveniently move it from room to room. And if you want to control it without getting up from the sofa, you can simply use the app or connect it to Amazon Alexa for voice-operation. 

Whether you work from home or the office, this small wonder is about to become your new favorite desktop accessory. Coming in at less than seven inches high and three inches long, and weighing about eight pounds, the purifier unobtrusively sits atop any surface, plus it fits in your bag so you can take it on-the-go (and even use it in your car, like some shoppers have). It claims to remove 99.97 percent of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns with its HEPA-type filter and UV-C technology, and it boasts a two-speed fan to cool you off during those hot summer days.
