The best air purifier for eliminating pollen and other allergens

Pollen is a fine powder from grasses, weeds, plants, and trees, and it can trigger symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and asthma. Carried by the wind, it can enter our homes and workplaces through open windows and doors. 

While it's difficult to control environmental triggers of allergy symptoms when you're outdoors, improving the air quality in your home and minimising allergy symptoms is possible. An air purifier can go a long way in helping you reduce your exposure to allergens and pollen and give you relief from the irritating symptoms that come with reactions.

Allergy symptoms are nothing to sneeze at!

Allergies occur when our immune system reacts to pollen and other allergens, mistaking them for harmful substances. The symptoms of allergies include sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose, and coughing. Allergies can also exacerbate asthma.

Runny noses, itchy eyes, breathing problems, and other symptoms that can arise during allergy season are a problem for a growing number of Australians – causing immense frustration and irritation for those who suffer from these symptoms.


20% of the Australian population have allergic rhinitis.


80% of asthmatics have allergic rhinitis, making asthma difficult to control.


People with allergic rhinitis are often tired due to poor sleep quality.


Moderate to severe allergic rhinitis can affect general health, impair learning, increase time off work, and reduce productivity.

Not all air purifiers are created equal

While all air purifiers are designed to remove pollutants, allergens, and irritants from the air, not all can capture the same level of contaminants and irritants. To ensure you have the best protection for your family, you need an air purifier that has both a HEPA and Activated Carbon Filter.

HEPA Filters

A good quality medical-grade HEPA filter can remove airborne allergens, pollutants, and particles from the air in your home, resulting in almost immediate relief from symptoms.

While many air purifier brands claim to have HEPA filters, many of them aren't H13 medical-grade and are made from synthetic materials that can release other harmful chemicals into the air for years after you've purchased your air purifier.

Activated Carbon Filters

If you suffer from allergies to pollen, dust, pet dander and mould, it's likely you're also sensitive to other environmental toxins. These can include VOCs from building materials and car exhaust and the particulate matter in bushfire smoke.

A high-capacity activated carbon filter with kilograms of carbon will filter chemical vapours from the air. Tightly packed carbon molecules remove these harmful chemicals and freshen the air as it passes through the system. The result is seriously clean air and a significant reduction in allergy symptoms.
