Every year the first Tuesday of May is celebrated as World Asthma Day. This day is dedicated to raise awareness about the chronic respiratory disease that is heavily affecting the residents of metro cities. While outdoor allergens, air pollution are cited to be some of the causes of asthma, indoor environment plays a similar role in triggering an asthma attack. People at times don’t realize that the air inside can make them suffer from allergy due to exposure to dust mites, pet dander etc. At present, there is no cure for asthma but there are a few precautions that can help bring the symptoms under control. Air purifiers help greatly in keeping the air quality at home in check. Hence we have listed some affordable purifiers for you to choose from earlier today. Click here to check the list.
If you do not want an extra device in the house, there are a few air conditioners (AC) that double up as an air purifier and help in removing allergens circulating in your home. But before buying an AC, you need to make sure that the device comes bundled with one key element – air ionizer that improves the quality of air. Air ionizers are basically added filters in the air conditioning units that filter bad odour and trap dust, pollen and other small particles. We have compiled some of the ACs that have ionizers and act as purifiers besides cooling the room temperature.
