As record-breaking wildfires spread through California, Oregon and other parts of the Western U.S., residential communities can be smothered with thick clouds of harmful smoke.
Air purifiers filter out the harmful toxins in the atmosphere, making your home a much safer environment to breathe freely. And you don't have to live with the worry about the smoke inflicting lung damage to you and your family over time.
According to the EPA, wildfire smoke predominantly consists of fine particles in the 0.4- to 0.7-micron range. HEPA-type filters remove allergens as minuscule as 0.3 microns, meaning these filters can be effective in making your home a safe space.
