Air pollution is a grave issue in India, and it is only rising with each passing day. According to a report by World Health Organization, India has 15 out of 20 most polluted cities in the world. The worst part is that indoor air quality is found to be worse than outdoors because of incomplete combustion, poor ventilation, electrical appliances which release toxic gases like formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, benzene, and other gases in concentrated forms. This reduces air quality significantly which has an adverse effect on the health.

Children and elders are particularly prone to poor air quality which can lead to lung diseases, allergies, and even heart condition to some extent. Today, with the advent of air purifiers in the market, the issue of poor air quality inside homes can be controlled. Air Purifiers are used to improve air quality by removing ultra-fine particles, dust, pollen, bacteria and other fine irritants.

With so many air purifiers out in the market, here’s a list of top 5 air purifiers in India
