What air purifier do you recommend for wildfire smoke in my home?
Room air purifiers with carbon-based filters are best suited to remove the particles and gases from smoke in your indoor air, reducing the risk of health effects related to wildfire smoke exposure. We recommend an air purifier certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) with the highest possible Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR), which indicates the unit’s ability to reduce smoke, dust and pollen particles. The higher the CADR numbers, the more effective the air purifier. It is also important to choose an air purifier that is rated for the square footage of the room where you will place it.
Blueair recommends the Classic 480i with DualProtection Filter for rooms up to 434 ft2 or the Classic 605 & Classic 500/600 Series DualProtection Filter for rooms up to 775 ft2 for maximum protection against wildfire smoke.
