Air purifier recommendation

Due to the fires in CA we are in smoke and keep our windows/doors closed.  Air quality is terrible.
 Wonder if anyone suggest a good air purifier for home/office with approx 1000sq ft space.

Thanks in advance!!

In this case probably what will be better is an ozone machine, rather than purifier.

A purifier's filters will likely clog up quickly, from particulate matter.

Ozone machines will tend to break up particles in air + running an ozone machine all the time can be rough on your lungs.

Another trick is to run a humidifier, which will cause moisture to attache to airborne particulates + the accumulated water will cause the particles to rain (fall to the ground). In your case, my guess is an industrial humidifier might be best. are cheap + produce massive ozone.

Amazon also has some massive humidifiers. One runs at 10 gallons/hour water emission... which will likely clean any type of particulate matter out of a structure. Just run something like this till air smells clean, then run a vacuum over the floor to clean up the precipitated matter, then kick on your central air.

Air purifier as well as humidifier. serves your purpose.

Since this problem is going to recur every year, over the long run you should probably consider a whole-house filter with a MERV 13 or MERV 15 filter.  It'll also eliminate dust in the house unless you have pets.

I have the Air Bear Right Angle mounted to the furnace and while the filters are somewhat expensive, they take out everything down to and including smoke, and only need to be changed about every 9 months to a year.
