Household air pollution contributes to diseases including strokes, ischaemic heart disease, and even lung cancer, according to the World Health Organization. These factors all stem from indoor smoke, small soot particles, and cooking using solid fuels. Fortunately, the best air purifiers can help to eradicate these effects, leaving your home a much healthier place for your family.

But it’s not just your cooking methods that affect your health; bacteria, airborne diseases, pet dander, smoke particles, and more can impact your sleep and increase breathing problems.
