Best air purifier for wildfire smoke

You cannot control unhealthy, smoky outdoor air, but you can control the air indoors.

Understanding wildfire smoke

According to the EPA, wildfire smoke is comprised of a mixture of gaseous pollutants, hazardous air pollutants, including water vapor, and particle pollution. Particle pollution represents a main component of wildfire smoke and the principal public health threat.

They can cause a range of health problems, from burning eyes and a runny nose to aggravated chronic heart and lung diseases. Exposure to particle pollution is even linked to premature death.

How small is a smoke particle?

The biggest health threat from smoke is from fine particles. These microscopic particles can penetrate deep into your lungs.

Smoke Particle Size
Generally 2.5 µm in diameter or smaller

Gases & Odors
Carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, dust particles

Not all air purifiers are the same.

A portable room air purifier can you help manage poor indoor air quality caused by wildfire smoke, as recommended by EPA guidelines. However, not all air purifiers are equipped for smoke removal.

3x better-than-HEPA Filtration

HEPA is the industry standard (99.97% at 0.3 micron). Air purifiers containing HEPA filtration clean your indoor air of harmful particles caused by smoke, as well as VOCs.

The CDC and EPA recommend using an air purification system using HEPA filtration to protect inhabitants of your home from breathing in smoke.

Our filters have been independently tested to remove 99.99% of particles down to 0.1 micron.
