After a year dominated by headlines about respiratory illnesses and worsening climate change, air quality has become a hot button issue. The air we breathe has a big effect on our health and well-being, and while spending time in nature is a great way to get some fresh air, you can breathe easier at home, too: Just get an air purifier.

Want to reap the benefits of cleaner air? Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best options available to keep your indoor air fresh—and keep you healthy, too.
