Air purifiers are a critical part of any home's climate control and air-quality monitoring system. You don't need to live in a hot, polluted city to invest in a filtration mechanism either. If you're sensitive to climate changes, pollen, hay, dust, or any other particle, that's reason enough to buy a purifier.

Many air purifiers come as part of an overall weather station that monitors temperature, humidity, and air quality. These generally contain a set of sensors that take readings and alert their users when any one index gets too high or low. At the same time, they take in the air you breathe and run it through a battery of filters to strain out any impurities or pollutants.

Use Air Purifiers with Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

Air particles go hand in hand with moisture, for both can make for difficult breathing, especially in the spring and summer. Lots of people in drier climes prefer to keep their air constantly moist by letting a vaporizor run all day and night. Conversely, residents of Miami, Washington D.C., New York, and other sweltering locales prefer to remove humidity from the air for easier respiration.

Your home furnishings store should be able to outfit you with whatever combination of devices is best for you. While you're there, stock up on patio heaters, ceiling fans, and whichever other climate-control instruments you need. These devices don't come cheap, but neither does a hospital stay for emphysema or asthma.
