Have you invested in an air purifier yet?

Delhi’s air pollution has reached a level of severity that’s frightening — and it’s happening every winter! This is a new level of struggle — and a struggle that we are thoroughly unprepared for. During the past two weeks, the AQI has been hovering between 400 and 478 – way over the permissible limits. While there’s not much we can do to control our external environment, we can certainly do something about the air quality of our rooms.

Here’s a list of four air purifiers that’ll help you get past this nightmare — at least, temporarily.  

Honeywell Air Touch I8 and A5

Honeywell’s Air Touch range of air purifiers though a wee bit on the costlier side is high on quality. The purifiers offer a three-layered protection, with the Honeywell-patented HiSiv technology, a HEPA filter and a pre-filter. It effectively removes large dust particles, PM2.5, bacteria, formaldehyde, harmful gases and other volatile organic compounds.

Air Touch I8, which starts from Rs 20,990, comes with a real-time ambient air-pollution measurement, and has a coverage area of up to 387 sq ft, while the A5 covers up to 323 sq ft. The A5 range starts from Rs 11,490.

These can be grabbed at Amazon, Flipkart, PayTM and offline stores.

Sharp FP-FM40E

Do you want a mosquito catcher along with an air purifier? If yes, go for Sharp’s FP-FM40E. Combining a HEPA filter and non-toxic mosquito-catching mechanism, this purifier can cover an area of up to 300 sq ft. Priced at Rs 28,000, it can eliminate both macro- and micro-scopic particles.

It is available on Amazon.in.

Moonbow AP–A8609UIA

If you don’t find shelling out a grand amount for breathing fresh, go for Moonbow’s compact purifier, which follows a five-stage filtration process. Costing Rs 36,990, it offers the strengthened action of a pre-filter, a HEPA filter, an activated carbon filter, UV lamp and energisers.

The pre-filter is washable and captures objects such as hair strands. This improves the life span of the other filters. There’s also a PM2.5 indicator to track real-time pollution.

This big daddy of air purifiers is available on Amazon, Snapdeal, Flipkart and at other outlets such as Croma.
