Randy B Buy from a good company. I think american made products are the best. You don't know what is in the models made in China. Air Oasis, Austin Air and LakeAir are made in the USA. I found that info on

I own a LakeAir Maxum it works good for me but you have to clean the filter every 3 months or so. Cleaning the filter is a little hassle but better than buying a new filter.

Katzjr27 I have a respiratory disease called bronchiectasis.
It is a condition in which my lungs fail to remove mucus in a normal way

I have tried a kaleidoscope of air purifiers over the years.

I will state sincerely (and in good faith) that for me, I have noticed a profound
decrease in the sequela of symptoms commensurate with my lung disease,
both in terms of less mucus, and, Clinically significant less coughing with

I was recently reading where a study was investigating using the Molekule
in hospital rooms to evaluate efficacy

I believe this can be found at clinical

tiberius I've got a HEPA air filter made by a company called MEACO - I think it's brilliant, not the
cheapest but it makes a massive difference to dust etc.
I also have their dehumidifiers which are also great.

They don't pay me BTW

I haven't purchased a large furnace filter yet, but in theory it should work. 1" thick is a common size for a furnace filter that you can buy at home depot and then trim a few rectangles of 11.75 inch x 5 inch from a larger one.

If your place catches fire from any of the mods, I am not responsible for you losing all of your canned goods and gunz. I live in Mongolia if anyone tries to sue me.
Nucky check into the filter idea with someone ho knows for sure but I have had both HVAC guys and home inspectors tell me the cheap air filters are the best. The expensive / thicker ones just put more strain on your unit.

HEPA's sound good but can be weak

Oops double reply. sorry I really am a Newbie

Randy B Hi Dave

I have some experience with both types. If you get a real HEPA the filter is great but its hard to pull air through it. So you end up with good filtration but little air flow. Ionizers are good but you want to be sure you find one that does not produce a lot of ozone. I have a friend who uses this one he says it even cured his wife's snoring.

gungatim My son had allergy's pretty bad, I used an Atmosphere from Amway. expensive but the best out there, and is certified by the asthma and allergy foundation (one of the few that are).

it worked great while he lived at home and he was able to stop his nebulizer and sleep much better. heap, carbon, and static filters. they last about a year or so.

Justme11 I have 3 of the old larger style ionic pros and they help my allergies a lot.
Also have HEPA filters on the HVACs.
I can't stand the noise etc of the hassock type HEPA filters.

The ionic pros really seem to gather the allergens. Silent, no filters to buy, uses very little power.

They are basically this unit that Sharper image used to sell.

TonyDedo I have a couple of those expensive ion air filters, and I have to admit that I really can't tell if they make a difference or not. They sit in the corner of a couple rooms a hum quietly, and they get dirty quickly and end up covered in dust if I don't clean them routinely. But I've noticed no difference in my quality of life when they're running vs. when they're not.

What HAS made a difference has been my efforts to keep dust & particles OUT of the house (as opposed to cleaning the air that's already in the house). I have the HVAC system serviced and change the filters routinely, I did a better job sealing windows and doors, improved the home's insulation, changed out the screen on the storm door for glass, etc, etc. Not only is the house more energy efficient now, the air appears to be much cleaner.

We also clean the house and the bedding more often, and I bought a better vacuum cleaner, which seems to have made a difference.

Iamfarticus I have a Honeywell air purifier, one-room size that we use on the main floor of the house. It works well and I have allergy and asthma issues. I have 2 cats and have to keep up with the filter changes.

I'm prone to sinus infections, just getting over a bad one. I picked up one of those Navage systems and it helped me right away.

tiberius I should mention that plants also clean the air but not quite in the same way.
02-12-2017 06:20 AM
tiberius I have a Meaco CA-HEPA 119x5 and I've owned it for only three months. I really like it
there is no dust at all, I set it to automatic and that seems to work well. It 'knows' if
I've cooked or am using the vacuum cleaner etc. and it speeds up.
This one has a UV light inside that kills bugs and it has an ionizer that can be turned on
or off. This one is quite large and powerful, the smaller one CA-HEPA 47x5 would probably
have sufficied.
I sleep really well if I have it in the room.
I give it a 9/10.

arrowshunting air purifier is very important, bad/polluted air has become the major reason for cancer in developing countries.
