My new toy came in

Jan 13, 2017 2:02 PM

So I finally broke down and bought a good air purifier after someone came into my home wearing cologne and it took 3 days to air out the house. Having all the windows and doors open when it's well below freezing and snowing to air the house out for days just isn't possible every time someone 'forgets' when they come over. Especially with the neighbours on one side being smokers and the neighbours on the other using dryer sheets and laundry scent boosters.
It seems to work well. Our house doesn't stink, but it did seem fresher after having the purifier running on low for several hours.
Every 5 year filter replacement.
It's an expensive unit, but I think it was worth the money to try to save my health a little. The boyfriend was not happy with how much I spent, but then I showed him the units specific for chemical sensitivities that start at twice the price (and this one is already really expensive) and he shut up.

That's super, really happy that it's working with clearing out the residual smells that cause you soo much trouble.
Your health is priceless and sometimes a big purchase like your air purifier are the best thing to do xx

Nice small size. What brand is it? Glad it is helpful.

Austin air. And it's not that small. It's just in a big open space. 2 feet high and 15ish inches square

That looks like the same brand that I had. It was fantastic! Hope you get great relief from running it.

Glad you got something to help you breathe easier. I'm glad that it's really helping, that's the most important thing.

My friend's son is having same issue you are and he's 6 years old. She is looking for a good air purifier. He can't even go to school because of his issues, every time he goes to school he ends up in an ambulance trip to the ER because his lungs are closing up.
