Air Filter/Purifier

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Lately I've been considering an air purifier of some sort but I'm not sure what's good and what's bad. I figure there has to be some other geek on here that's as allergenic as me with lots of experience with air filters.

Bump because I'm also interested. Spring coming up!

If you have central air placing a nice filter in it like a HEPA or similar design will go a long ways. Those $0.50 ones that are normally used don't do jack. They can be found at any hardware store or Walmart.

EDIT: Something like this

Thanks, I'll have to put one of those in.
Still looking for a standing filter though.

Also, that U Kansas internet is crazy.

No problem I have bad seasonal allergies as well. I'm fine during the fall/winter but spring and early summer are horrible. My eyes are so red some days that people ask me if I'm OK. They also water so much that people think I am crying.

unfortunately I live in an older home without central air, I was thinking more of a single room unit for my bedroom to at least help me sleep better at night.

I have a Hepa filter setup in the PC room, keeps a lot more dust out of the PC.
Just dont get those tower style deals, from what ive seen they dont work.
