  • Air Purifiers & Filters

    Improve air quality and help reduce emissions that pollute by purchasing air filters and ENERGY STAR® qualified air purifiers.

Clearing the Air

Room air purifiers — or “room air cleaners” — are portable, electric appliances that remove fine particles such as dust and pollen from indoor air. ENERGY STAR® qualified room air purifiers range in size and configuration, providing you with a variety of options to make the smart energy-efficient choice.

However, the most efficient way to filter your home’s air is through the heating and air conditioning filtration system. The most common method is the inexpensive fiberglass filter, but it only traps enough large particulates to keep your HVAC system from clogging. Electrostatic filters perform much better. Using charged fibers, they capture small and large particles.

Upgrade to an ENERGY STAR® qualified purifier

ENERGY STAR® qualified room air purifiers are 40% more energy-efficient than standard models, saving you about 230 kilowatt hour (kWh) usage per year and $25 annually on utility bills. These savings could add up to $200 over the life of the air purifier.
