Now that it's officially fall, it's time to brace ourselves for another cold and flu season. 

Aside from sanitizing, dusting and vacuuming your space, an air purifier is another great way to improve the air quality of your home and minimize bacteria, dust and allergens that can compromise your health. 

One model that's risen in the ranks on Amazon is the Puritix Air Purifier; the portable unit recently made its way to Amazon's Movers & Shakers list after experiencing a spike in sales of more than 160,000 per cent.

The details

Puritix air purifier removes up to 99.97 per cent of airborne particles, perfect for people with allergies to mold or pollen, pet dander, smoke, dust and other irritants that live and move through the air.

The Puritix unit features three different fan speeds and can purify up to 258 square feet within 15 minutes, making it perfect for kid’s rooms, basements, dormitories, studio apartments or on top of your work desk. The portable model features a convenient timer for one, two, four and eight hours and emits low noise, making it ideal for bedroom use. 

What people are saying

Puritix's Air Purifier has earned a 4.6-star rating based on more than 200 customer reviews from Amazon shoppers. 

One shopper said she was inspired to purchase an air purifier during COVID as an added precaution to keep their home as healthy as possible. 

"I feel like this has made a difference," they wrote, adding that it provided "peace of mind" that their air was clean.

Others have called the Puritix a game-changer during allergy season, saying they've noticed a "significant" improvement in their health. Several Amazon reviewers said they no longer have a stuffy, runny nose that come with pet or dust allergies. 

"This filter is truly changing my life," one shopper said of the improvement in their dust allergy. 

"The air smells clean," another said. 

Although there are tons of positive reviews online there are some things to consider before you buy. Some shoppers have complained that on its highest speed, the air purifier can be a bit noisy, while others have said that they were disappointed that filters don't last very long (replacement filters should be purchased every three months to ensure optimal air filtration).

Verdict

If you're in the market for a compact air purifier to help keep your work or living space healthy during fall and winter, the Puritix Air Purifier might be for you. The easy to use and stylish model has received rave reviews from shoppers who have noticed a significant improvement in their allergy symptoms and the air quality in their home. 

However, keep in mind that this unit can only purify up to 258 square feet, meaning it might not be ideal for large spaces. Also, Puritix's air filters aren't reusable - which might be a deal breaker for some people. If you're looking for something with a reusable air filter, you might want to invest in something like the Honeywell AirGenius, which although costs more initially, features a washable filter that can save you money over time.
