@wakkaday It depends really, if the air is quite dry in your home then the humidifier could be a good choice. Just be careful though because high humidity (>60% RH I believe) and you're going to encourage mould growth and inhaling spores can have a pretty severe effect on your health long term.
Wow . Trying this out now is it worth getting a 2 in 1 humidifier and air purifier
Does anyone have any experience of the Bionaire Air Purifiers? Thanks
I've had this air purifier since March of this year and I can't recommend it enough. I suffer from allergic rhinitis and this thing has made a massive difference. There are a few problems with it though and I'd recommend anyone thinking of buying this read my Amazon review: "Before I get onto my review for this air purifier I just want to explain that I made my own basic one using a square fan and a hepa filter taped to the back. You can find a youtube video demonstrating how to set this basic but highly effective purifier and you could easily add a carbon filter and mesh filter to improve upon its design. The point I am trying to make is that no way is this product worth the £300+ rrp when inside the fancy exterior all that it essentially contains is a fan to drive air through 3 filters in order to remove pollutants. Most features it has including the variable fan speeds can easily be achieved with a DIY build at a fraction of the cost. That being said, if appearance and convenience are what you are looking for then this might be for you. I am fairly happy with its performance as you can clearly see the dust and dander caught in each filter. It gives frequent reminders to clean the filters and I'm sure eventually it will prompt me to replace the filters (I saw somewhere it says they have a 2 year lifespan). The main criticism I have for the unit is that on speeds 1,2,3 (not 4 and 5) the whirring fan noise is accompanied by a low frequency hum. The ordinary fan noise is perfectly bearable however this hum is quite annoying and is audible even with my noise cancelling headphones on.. To get around this I put blu tack around the two top clips that attach the front cover to make it a tighter fit and I also put some acoustic foam between the front panel and the main unit. This seems to have solved the problem but for such an expensive unit I shouldn't have to solve this in the first place."
