If the phrase “super pollen” fills you with fear or if you’re someone who sneezes in a dusty room then you’re probably in need of an air purifier.
Designed to minimise allergens that are present in a room, a good quality air purifier is the secret to survival during the summer months.
An air purifier works by filtering the air in a room through a series of internal cleaning mechanisms, recirculating it in a much purer form, free of smoke, pollen, mould spores, dust and other irritants.
However, if you find yourself rubbing your eyes a lot, a dehumidifier might be the answer to your prayers. Rather than circulating the air, a dehumidifier draws moisture out from the room, lowering its humidity levels and preventing mould and microbes from surviving. Both air purifiers and dehumidifiers share a common goal and that’s to make life a little easier for you without running towards antihistamines or other allergy-themed products.
Things to look out for in air purifiers? A HEPA filter, which traps and locks up to 99.97 per cent of airborne contaminants and an activated carbon filter, which removes any damp and musty smells caused by mould or mildew. If you’re looking for a premium model, keep an eye out for purifiers which include negative ionisation, which in layman’s terms ensures a more thorough cleaning, and UV light inclusion, which sterilises the air even more.
Ready to breathe a little easier? Amazon Prime Day is here, AKA the best time of year to invest in a new air purifier or dehumidifier. Here’s everything you need to know.
When does Amazon Prime Day 2022 end?
Contrary to its name, Amazon Prime Day 2022 actually lasts a full 48 hours, two days of discounts, promotions and incredible offers. Expect record breaking deals from 00:01 on July 12 to 23:59 on July 13.
Do you need a Prime account to get the deals?
These deals aren’t just available to anyone - you’ll need to be a Prime member to snap them up. But you don’t have to spend a fortune up front to take part, as Amazon offers a free, 30 day trial period, which gives you free access to Prime Day as well as Prime Video, thousands of ebooks, Amazon Music and next day delivery (or sometimes even same day delivery, depending on what you’re ordering and where you’re based). Monthly membership costs £7.99 or £79 for the year, while students can claim all of Amazon’s benefits for only £3.99 per month.
What type of deals are available?
Deals fall under one of three categories. There are some discounts that run for the full duration of Prime Day. Others, like the Deal of the Day, only last for 24 hours. Eagle-eyed bargain hunters can also snap up Lightning Deals, which appear at any moment and may vanish without a moment’s notice, too.
What deals on air purifiers and dehumidifiers were there last year?
Last year we saw huge deals across a large number of popular retails for air purifiers and dehumidifiers. Big names and even bigger discounts ensured plenty of happy customers during Prime Day 2021.
What deals can we expect this year?
Hay fever getting you down? You’ll be pleased to see an even bigger range of discounted goods during Prime Day 2022. Keep an eye out for names including BLACK+DECKER, Philips, Levoit and Blueair.
Are there any deals live now?

You can also check out deals on products such as speakers, cooling fans and Nintendo Switch. Don’t forget to also shop the best of Amazon devices and Apple products.
