Air purifiers-anyone got one and is it good

I am thinking of getting an air purifier and spending around £100 for a reasonable one. Has anyone got one and is it good. I hear the ones with Hepa and an ioniser are the best for smoke and pet problems. Any info greatly appreciated.

Not sure about a 'purifier' but i've had an ioniser for over 10 years now, keeps the dust down and my athsma in check particularly having 2 cats in the house!! We've 2 on the go at the moment - with the main one in the bedroom to help whilst sleeping.

Perhaps use your £100 budget to get several smaller units for different rooms?

Hi, i bought purifier thing from amazon as recommended by my doctor to help with my sons asthma. I have it on constantly at night In his bedroom with doors open as it purifys upto 20 feet, so does the entire landing. The weekends when he spends his days downstairs i have it on downstairs.
I found it a great help and since getting it some months back, weve not had a hospital trip. My son is very poorly at the mo with asthma, combining purifier with his pumps im able to control it at home.

pcnutta - does he only have inhalers?

the reason I ask is that i've lived with athsma for about 15 years, and it used to get quite bad, restricting activities etc etc. Only recently was I offered something alternative - a tablet called Singulair whichis one a day before bed and really reduces the dependency on the 'reliever' inhaler. It's made a huge difference and I can now go about my daily tasks without having to stop every now and then to catch my breath!!

Ask your GP!

no jay ive never been offered anything, hes on brown preventor pump 3 puffs morning and 3 puffs at night. Then his blue pump as and when. Also he takes steroids when he gets rough.Which is alot as his asthma is triggered by illness, such as comman cold.So Autum/Winter is awfull. WE seem to spend every over week back and forth docs/hospital. I wonder if those tablets are for children. I will most definate ask about them.Anything to give him better quality of life.

Cheers for that,ive just rang docs and sons got appointment friday, so im printing out that info and taking it with me. With winter around the corner i dont want a replay of last yr!
Thanks again!

Good for you!

It was offered to me to see if it works, I was made aware that it doesn't work for everyone, but I had nothing to lose and thankfully it did work!

I think the bumf says it's ok for kids from 2 years old, I take it your boy is older? so there should be no problems there!

I too have the brown inhaler, and the blue one, though my dependency on the latter is greatly reduced now!!

good luck for friday!

aww jenny they worked for your little one? My boys 6 and im so happy with the advice.I really hope they work for my boy. They really noticeably work?
#11
Definatly!!!!!!!!!

Honestly Nutta the difference was amazing. Doc said they may take a week or so to kick in. Within 3 days he was sleeping for 6 hours straight and no wheezing - within a week he was running around. I honestly cried

...i'm welling up now Jen!

I'm really pleased they worked for him - it is amazing the difference 1 silly little tablet can make isn't it!

Pc: before, running up the stairs could have been a major problem, same with doing the hoovering etc, but not anymore - I can clean the whole house now no problem!

are air purifiers worth the money if you dont suffer from asthma?

say you just wanted to keep the air as dust free as possible?

Clean the whole house? Soundsgood,how much do you charge? My last cleaner was 7 quid an hour.:giggle:


Really pleased jenny! I hope it has the same effect on my monster! Just so he gets a proper education!

Even if my boy becomes alot better id still occasionally use the purifier. It cleans the air which is better than what we breathe in now with todays pollution.

I think you've answered your own question there!

an ioniser WILL keep the dust down - it settles in nice black patches around the ioniser!

any recommendations?

is it like fresh air ... indoors? :?

The one in our bedroom is a boots ioniser, i've had a mountain breeze one in the past - don't know about 'fresh air' but when you get up-close it smells a little like there's just been a thunder storm (charged air)
#21
boots one is fine for 10 quid.
#22
Try one of these.

Cleanaer

We bought one a couple of months ago for £30 and it's a great little unit, quiet, nice fragrance and does wonders for mine and my daughters hayfever/dust allergy. It's well made and looks good too.
Endorsed by the British Allergy Foundation as well.

We had a Goodsphere before this and whilst it worked fine, it became noisier as scale built up in the unit and fragances were quite expensive. In the end it packed up completely :-(
