As a child I had asthma, which would be joined in the summer by hay fever – luckily as I got older I grew out of it; sadly my Dad though has had to deal with hay fever throughout his life, and quite often has to close all the windows in the heat of summer as he just can’t stop sneezing (believe me being in a car with no air con in the middle of summer with my Dad is not fun!).
So when I saw a chance come up to review an air purifier I knew he really would put it to the test and see what happened.
Sadly the damp weather meant my Dad’s hay fever was held at bay (don’t tell him I said that) until this past week when the sun brought the sneezing on in force now we probably should have pre-empted the sneezing fits and had the purifier on to keep the sneezing at bay but what good does that do when it comes to seeing just how well it works – so being the loving wife my Mum is she let my Dad go into full sneezing fit before running in with the purifier.
He found the air purifier quickly calmed his sneezing, and kept him stable throughout the time he stayed in the lounge of course that could have just been coincidence bar the fact when he did finally leave to help with the washing up his sneezing fits returned only to be subdued again when he returned. He now has it ready and waiting at all times, to switch on as soon as he feels a sneezing fit might be on the way.
In use it is very quiet even when used on the highest setting it contains HEPA filters that help filter out things such as pollens, gases, fumes and cigarette smoke while destroying microorganisms, bacteria & fungal spores. This unit in particular is low priced coming in at just £49.97 though if you use the code: 25PURE you will get £25 off making it just £24.97.
Having seen just how much this air purifier has helped my Dad – I can only say if you have someone who does have such allergies in your hope pop on over to Appliances Direct now and order one.
Have you ever used an air purifier, and if so what did you think of it?
