In brief: It may

If you have allergies due to pollen, dust, or airbone particles, then an air purifier may help.
A hepa grade filter system is best and it should be cleaned regularly. Once the airborne allergies are controlled, your sinuses may become easier to manage.

In brief: Depends

Some of my patients find it useful, especially if they have pet dander allergies.
However the research on air purifiers have not shown much benefit to patients except in limited situations.
