Despite spending all your time inside, allergy season is still on schedule. Though you’ve probably already got your medications at hand, you can also help clear the air in your home (literally) with a really good air purifier.

If you live in a highly-populated metropolitan area, then it’s no surprise as to why you’d shell out cash for an air purifier. They’re meant to rid your living space of leftover nasties from cleaning. But if you can’t physically see the effects, how do you know it’s working?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, air purifiers are the most effective way to improve your indoor air quality. However, when choosing an air purifier, EPA says that most purifiers have one filter, which filters out particles or certain gases. And if you want a purifier that filters out both, you’ll want to snag a purifier with two filters.

For a cleaner air experience, EPA also recommends you get an air purifier “that has a clean air delivery rate (CADR) that is large enough for the size of the room or area in which you will use it.” In other words, the size ratio of the room to purifier size should lineup. But be sure to check the label depending on your household needs. Take a peek at some of the top-rated purifiers from Target, Kohl’s, Staples and more.
