IKEA’s new air purifier is a design masterpiece that won’t break the bank


Air purifiers are great to have around the home, especially now that spring has arrived and brought with it a wave of evil pollen invaders ready to wage war on your sinuses. The problem with so many of them s that they’re either too large to comfortably fit into small apartments or their price is too high for your wallet.

Indoor air quality has a huge impact on your overall health, and poor air quality leads to more instances of asthma, as well as heart disease, cancer, and a number of other serious health conditions.

Today, IKEA launched the Förnuftig Air Purifier in the United States at the incredible price of just $55. The Förnuftig is powerful and uses a multistage filtration system that does a more thorough job.

The prefilter removes large particles from the air such as hair and dust, while a secondary filter removes particles (including pollen) as small as 2.5 microns in size. There is also a filter that removes gaseous pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde, as well as unpleasant odors from smoking and cooking.

Förnuftig Air Purifier

The Förnuftig doesn’t use an app or smart controls; instead, it is controlled simply via a dial. It’s easy to use for even the most non-tech-savvy customers, which broadens the appeal of this air purifier.

In small spaces, air quality is even more important. If you live in a 200-square-foot apartment in Manhattan, you aren’t going to invest in a device that takes up a large amount of space — you don’t have it to spare. The Förnuftig meets that need. Designed with small spaces in mind, the Förnuftig is rated for 108 square feet and measures only 4 inches by 18 inches by 12 inches. That’s small enough to fit on a countertop.

Whether you’re looking for an air purifier for a small bedroom or you need one for an entire apartment, the Förnuftig is a great option when you don’t have the space or the spare change.

The Förnuftig can be purchased online through IKEA’s website or in-store at local IKEA retailers.
