Allergy season is here in full strength, but with an air purifier, you don’t have to suffer. NewEgg and Rakuten have refurbished Dyson AM11 Pure Cool Tower Purifier Fans for $210 off, less than half the regular price. With discounts as steep as this, now is a great time to grab a really nice air purifier dealto help curb your allergies.

The AM11 Pure Cool Tower removes 99.97% of allergens and pollutants as small as 0.3 microns. This unit cools in summer and purifies all year with long-range air flow to pull in the air from across large rooms. This model is silver and white and weighs just under eight pounds, so it’s easy to move between rooms.

The Dyson AM11 has a vacuum-sealed glass HEPA filter that wraps 360 degrees around the purifier to catch pollen, bacteria, and pet dander. In addition, a layer of activated charcoal traps odors and dangerous fumes.

Engineered to run all night, the AM11’s Quiet-Mark-accredited oscillating purifier fan is safe and easy to clean. The unit’s LED display dims at night so that it won’t disturb your sleep.

An included remote control helps you select from 10 airflow settings. The remote is magnetized so you can store it on the machine so it won’t get lost among other remote controls in the house.

You don’t need to wash the AM11’s filter each month, as is the case with many purifiers. After a full year of using the unit for 12 hours a day, every day, replace with a new filter.

Dyson backs the refurbished AM11 Pure Cool Tower Purifier Fan with a 6-month warranty.

NewEgg’s sale is limited to five units per customer and ends on Saturday. Rakuten’s deal ends at midnight tonight and is limited to one unit per customer. Buying from Rakuten requires that customers sign up for free membership. The refurbished Dyson Purifier Fans are sold and shipped directly by Dyson.

The Dyson AM11 Pure Cool Tower Purifier Fan ordinarily sells for $400, but NewEgg and Rakuten are both selling refurbished units shipped directly from Dyson for just $190. If you suffer from allergies or just want cleaner air in your home, take advantage of this awesome price.

How to know when to change your smart air purifier’s filter
The Mila Smart Air Purifier.

Air purifiers are able to remove dust and allergens from the home, so long as they're well-maintained -- the key here is making sure the filters are doing their job. We're going to help you keep them in good working order with tips on replacing filters when necessary.
How long do filters last in air purifiers?

The life of a filter will depend on its type and the quality of the air it's purifying. To give your filter a longer life, look for air purifiers that have a pre-filter. This element can catch larger particles before they even get to your filter, but they will likely need more routine cleaning.

Wearable air purifiers: What are they, and do they work?
Man wearing LG portable mask air purifier.

While the battle against COVID-19 continues to rage around the globe, the virus has brought much attention to personal space and the air we breathe. A new trend is to wear a portable or necklace-style air purifier in hopes of staving off pollutants, allergens, and even COVID-19 -- though there's plenty of other pandemic-related gadgets that are making the rounds. But do these wearable air purifiers -- also known as personal air purifiers or portable air purifiers -- work?
What is a wearable air purifier?
A wearable or necklace air purifier is simply an extremely small version of the same type of gadget that you might put in a corner of your home. Often worn on a chain or lanyard around your neck, these air purifiers also come with carabiners or clips so you can strap them to a bag, belt, rearview mirror, and more.

Should I get a wearable air purifier?
To help understand whether a wearable or necklace air purifier could be of benefit to you, it helps to understand a bit about air purification technology and what's actually going on.
Why choose an air purifier?
Air purifiers in the home have a variety of technologies that can help trap or destroy pollutants, chemicals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), smoke, and even viruses by drawing these molecules into their filters. They may create an electrical charge to attract and trap particles. They may also use a variety of filters, including HEPA filters, to hold those unwanted particles and prevent them from getting back into the air. Air purifiers will often use a fan or circulation device to pull particles in so that they can contain them.

What are ionizer air purifiers and do they work?
Dyson fan, purifier in living room.

There's probably never been a time where we are more concerned about what's in the air and drifting around our homes. If you are looking into air purifiers, whether it's to keep allergens at bay, combat smoke and pollution that might be in the air, or just to have cleaner air in your home, you may have seen the term ionizer when it comes to air purifiers. What exactly does this term mean? Is it important to have in an air purifier? And what does it do?
What is ionizing?

To understand the term ionizing, we first need to understand ions and their presence in our air. An ion is an atom or a molecule with an electric charge; positively charged ions are called cations and negatively charged ions are called anions. (No, there won’t be a quiz.)
What is an air ionizer?
Some air purifiers (read our article on the best models) also have the ability to ionize or charge particles in the air, and will often give those molecules a negative charge. So why would you want to do this? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) explains it this way: “Ion generators act by charging the particles in a room so that they are attracted to walls, floors, tabletops, draperies, occupants, etc.”
