While good air quality has always been important, recent years have made people hyper-aware of what is—or could be—in the air they breathe. Wildfires, a global pandemic, and ever-present allergens, have a not-so-funny way of doing that.

That's why plenty of people are investing in air purifiers, and right now is a particularly opportune time with wildfires from Canada worsening the air quality in the states (NYC is seeing some particularly bad air quality).
