    With more Americans spending time at home keeping the air in their living spaces cool and clean is of paramount importance to many who are looking to invest in a portable home comfort unit that meets their needs.

    During the current pandemic, families have been spending time sharpening their skills in their home kitchen. While meal quality may be improving, the lingering smell of various ingredients may lead more to search out an air purifier.

    One of the challenges facing consumers is finding a product that offers the functionality they need but also operates without emitting a great deal of noise.


    Helping consumers find items that operate effectively and quietly at home is Quiet Mark, the world’s only nonprofit organization with a proprietary sound testing program that covers more than 50 product categories and awards items the Quiet Mark seal of approval. 

    Its founder, Poppy Szkile, is known as a third-generation noise pollution pioneer. Her goal is to transform public health and the environment by awarding the quietest technology that creates quieter homes, workplaces and outdoor environments.

    Below are items that have received the Quiet Mark seal of approval.
