Each spring, allergy season brings with it pollen and other irritating airborne particles, triggering pesky symptoms like watery eyes, stuffy noses, and coughs. Pair this with poor air quality due to any number of environmental hazards, including wildfires, and you're in for discomfort at best and serious health effects at worst. One way to ensure the air you breathe is as clean as possible is to set up an air purifier in your home. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommend doing so to keep wildfire smoke outside.

Right now, you can order a Honeywell HEPA air purifier—which happens to be Prevention’s pick for the best overall air purifier—for 22% off its usual price. Best of all, it’ll be on your doorstep and ready to use in two days with Amazon Prime’s speedy shipping options.

“Air purifiers are designed to reduce allergy symptoms by filtering, and subsequently removing allergens and other environmental contaminants from the air,” Doug Laher, M.B.A., C.A.E., C.M.P., registered respiratory therapist, and COO at the American Association for Respiratory Care, previously told Prevention. Honeywell’s popular HEPA air purifier does just that.

First, a pre-filter takes care of typical household odors and VOCs (volatile organic compounds aka gases emitted from certain products). Then the HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter takes care of 99.97% of microscopic airborne allergens and particles, including dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mite debris, and smoke.

The device comes in three sizes to accommodate different room sizes. For instance, the extra large room model is suitable for use in rooms up to 465 square feet. Keep your space in mind when choosing a model.

Nearly 25,000 Amazon shoppers have given this Honeywell air purifier a five-star rating. Many reviewers cite using the device to combat allergens and smokey air caused by wildfires.

One person called it “a serious air purifier,” adding that it’s “great for allergy and wildfire season.” Another said, “It helps tremendously to filter out odors and allergens. I can tell the difference in just a few minutes.”

Head to Amazon to order Honeywell’s HEPA air purifier for your home today while it’s almost $60 cheaper than usual.
