Best Air Purifiers to Use in Winter

While winter may not be thought of as an allergy season, it certainly creates challenges for homeowners who need clean, fresh air. The main culprits in winter tend to be allergic reactions from dust and pet dander. Indoor air pollution can be a serious problem, so make sure you have one of the best air purifiers to use in winter for your home.

Which one should you choose? Let’s take a closer look at our purifiers to find out.

But first, let’s see why winter is such a tough time for indoor air pollution.

 

The Challenges of Indoor Air in the Winter

Indoor air in the winter can be difficult to deal with. The biggest factor for indoor air quality in the winter months is the lack of circulation and air flow through the home because we close windows and the seal up the house to keep warm.

Indoor air in the winter means little circulation and less fresh air, which means there can be challenges when creating a plan for indoor air pollutants.

Winter generally has drier air in the home, which creates another set of air-quality challenges. You will want to ensure your relative humidity stays above 30%. If it falls lower then consider using a humidifier. Fortunately, there are some additional steps you take to get better air in the winter.

First, you need to limit the amount of indoor airborne particles, and for most this means reducing dust. In general, the majority dust is from outside sources like sand and dirt, so making sure people remove their boots before entering the home is essential. You should also place mats on the interior and exterior of entryways to reduce dust. Clean and rotate these mats regularly to reduce winter dust and allergens in the home.

However, when it’s cold outside you will get more of your dust from inside the home. The main sources will be dust that has accumulated in your air ducts that is then blown throughout your home when the heat is turned on. The air filters for your furnace system often only remove the largest of dust particles and not the tiny airborne dust that causes most allergic reactions.

Another source is dust mites. For this we suggest regular washing of sheets and pillow cases.

If you’re not sure whether you need an air purifier, you may want to conduct air quality testing.

Your best bet is to use an air purifier with a HEPA air filter during the winter. HEPA filters trap dust particles and create better breathing conditions inside. They can also be used to reduce airborne allergens, pet dander, pollen, and more, making them an effective tool during the winter.

Air purifiers are essential in the winter, so let’s look at five of the best options for your home. With one of these outstanding air purifiers from Oransi, you’ll have cleaner air through the cold winter season!

 

5 of the Best Air Purifiers to Use in Winter

While we love the Max, if you have smoke smells to remove we suggest going with the EJ120 or ERIK650A as they are better at gas removal.

Best of all, it can be used to remove dust, pollen, and mold, making it ideal for many different areas.

During the winter, you will have to use an air purifier continuously. Not only will this mean more filter replacements, it will also mean a potential increase in your overall utility bill.

Finn UV-C air purifier in home bedroom

Finn HEPA UV Air Purifier

The Finn HEPA UV air cleaner is one of the best options for use in a bedroom during winter.

The Finn UV air cleaner uses a two-stage filtration system plus a UV-C lamp chamber. First, the air passes through a pre-filter, which allows the purifier to remove many of the larger airborne dust particles, such as large pieces of dust. Next, the air moves through a HEPA filter. This is where many of the most microscopic particles are taken out of the air. The Finn doesn’t stop there, however; the air then passes through a UV-C light chamber. In this little chamber, the air is hit with UV light, which helps destroy organic particles, such as mold spores. The final result is air that is clean and purified. In fact, this purifier is rated to remove over 98% of airborne particles.

The Finn doesn’t just give you excellent purification, it also gives you an outstanding value. It comes with two replacement filters for free, which are included in the box. The included V-HEPA filter will last for roughly 12 months and can be cleaned. With a ten-year warranty, you’ll also know you’re getting a purifier that will last, so you won’t have to rush out and purchase another unit for years to come.

It’s powerful enough to effectively clean an area measuring 1,250 square feet, and can remove dust, pollen, mold spores, smoke, and even bacteria from the air, making it one of the best air purifiers to use in winter. The mod jr. HEPA air purifier has the same features as the mod, but it covers a smaller square foot area at 878 square feet. 

These air purifiers have one filter that includes both activated carbon and True HEPA, which delivers advanced gas control, and with simple controls, the system is easy to use. You can choose different speed settings on the touch screen panel, allowing you to set the purifier to the exact level of air flow that you desire.
