Combat the haze in Singapore with the best air purifiers you can buy for under S$300

Here are our best picks of air purifiers in the market you should get for your homes and office to combat haze.

If you start to experience twitchy and watery eyes and nose, you're not alone. Singapore is anticipating bouts of haze which will affect the island and neighbouring countries.

According to a media release by the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) as of 6 October, there has been a significant increase in the number of hotspots in Sumatra, with 212 detected today compared with 65 and 15 on 5 October 2023 and 4 October 2023 respectively. Smoke plumes and haze were observed from satellite imagery over southern and central Sumatra. A brief shift in the wind direction this afternoon, from southeasterly to southerly, blew some of the lighter haze toward Singapore and caused a deterioration in air quality. There is a likelihood of haze affecting Singapore over the coming weekend if the fires persist and winds direction is unfavourable.

To safeguard my family's health, my Dyson Tower Fan has been alerting me of poor air quality this week, and as a precaution, I've been using the tower every day now.
