Air Purifiers

Do any of you have any experience with any of the several air purifiers that also kill germs, bacteria, and mold? I read up on what to look for, but don't know which to choose since all their ads sound equal. Since it's for a bedroom it needs to be quiet.

RE: Air Purifiers

I don't know about air purifiers, but if they work with moisture or filters they can be dangerous. I read an article about dehumidifiers. It said they are dangerous if you are don't clean them regularly and thoroughly. The stuff that accumulate inside them grows.

RE: Air Purifiers

You might check with a larger medical supply store. They may not carry them but can give you some suggestions. Or if you have a part of your medical group that issues oxygen, c-pap machines etc, they might have some ideas also.

RE: Air Purifiers

You might want to read this article before you purchase an air purifier. We bought two of them from the Sharper Image a number of years back and returned them after learning they can be harmful. Not sure what the solution is, but first do no harm!

RE: Air Purifiers

I had an Ozone type, used it about a yr, I didn't get any better, in fact I think I was worse so stopped using it. It did deposit "dirt" on fridge, it was across from it, I moved it once to another room & wall opposite it got "dirt" too & took lot of scrubbing to get rid of, I think it was actually making the "dirt" as didn't have any after I got rid of it. I wrote on another one of these posts about GF that had allergies bad also & she tried several & none stayed plugged in for more than a month.

RE: Air Purifiers

Just reporting in: after a good amount of research I bought an Airocide that was created to clean the air on the space station. I put it in my bedroom for a test run and found that it cleared the air within a week and continues to improve the air daily. Today I bought two more, one for DH's bed room and one for the living room.
