Rabbit air purifier review: ‘I’m an allergist and this is what I use in my office’

As medical director for an allergy and asthma clinic in New York, I am constantly telling people to pay attention to the air quality in their home.

You want to know why? The air inside your house (and other buildings) is likely more polluted than the air you're breathing outside (you can thank poor ventilation for that).

That’s according to the Environmental Protection Agency, which also notes that we spend maybe 90 percent of our time inside inhaling that polluted air-kind of a good reason to invest in an indoor air purifier, right?

There's just one issue-there are so many on the market, and not all of them deliver. But here's one that does: the Rabbit Air MinusA2. It’s certified Asthma & Allergy Friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, and research backs up that it works. Some scientific experiments by Allergy Standards found a 96 percent reduction in some common indoor allergens, like dust mites.

This model sits in my office waiting area and helps to improve air quality and reduce pollutants and different indoor allergens-and personally, I've found that it works.

The air in my office is cleaner (I can tell, as our air conditioner filters are cleaner at each changing than they were before I got the Rabbit Air). My model also uses a customized filter-for absorbing toxins and removing odors-and I've noticed that there are fewer odors coming into the office from outside.

The purifier uses a HEPA (a.k.a., high-efficiency particulate air) filter too, which, according to the EPA, can help improve cardiovascular and respiratory health, as well as allergy and asthma symptoms.

Another plus: It’s not like one of those bulky, boxy, noisy filters that’s a pain to have around. The design is sleek (there are customized panels you can insert on the front that make this look like a work of art) and it runs super-quiet. Even better: you can mount this one on your wall, too. It's also connected to an app, so you can monitor the air quality of your home while you're away (and adjust the fan speed, if needed). The app also tells you exactly when to change the filter (no guesswork!).

I know this air purifier is pretty pricey-but I really think that given its efficiency and effectiveness, as well as all the handy bells and whistles, make this one worth it. Besides, there’s a three-month return period if you disagree.

Another tip: I pair this device with a few plants that scrub pollutants from indoor air, like spider plants and Boston ferns. With this combo, everyone is breathing easy (which is super important for an allergist's office).
