You're probably spending way more time indoors than you ever have before—and as a result, you might be starting to notice that the air in your home is getting a little stale. Whether it's because of pets, food odors, or just a general sense of stagnation, it's probably time to invest in an air purifier that can help defunk your bedroom and home office so you can breathe a little easier.

2. 5-In-1 Air Purifier With HEPA Filter and Negative Ion Generator; $109 (26 percent off)

Pro Breeze

This purifier puts air through five filters before it ever reaches your lungs. It starts with a preliminary filter to catch large airborne particles like pet hair. Next, the air passes through a True HEPA filter, where any dust mites, pollen, and other allergens get stuck. An activated carbon filter then absorbs contaminants and impurities before sending the air through to the cold catalyst filter to remove any formaldehyde or remaining impurities.
