Hi Angelica,

I just bought a honeywell 1700 True HEPA. It was about 119.00 at Home Depot. It is awesome at changing the air quality.

No more sneezing. Drawbacks, not for a bedroom unless you are going to turn it off at night. even LOW is kinda loud.

Positives: Price, Exellent at cleaning the air, no filter replacement.

I want all the suggestions I can get so I can have choices.

I think I only received two replies last time. The same two I think... I know other people out there have got to be using air purifiers.

I of course want to purchase one with the lymenet Good House Keeping Seal of Approval on it before I buy.

I would like to find one as well - so this is a great thread. There are a few on sale at Home Depot right now. Not sure how they work/sound.

Uh oh - didn't know there was a Lymenet Good Housekeeping Seal - and I'm sure very little in my home will pass these days!

We have an IQ Air system (portable unit).

Expensive. We paid about $800. It is NOT quiet...still...I LOVE IT.

Was used in hospitals during the SARS scare...

http://www.iqair.us/aboutus/theiqairstory/

Many filters. The less expensive ones are replaced about every year (if the unit is run a LOT).

The more expensive HEPA filter lasts about 2 years.

http://www.allergybuyersclub.com/ap-iqair-comparison.html

It is Swiss made.

I also replace our whole house filter often (almost monthly) with the 3M type.

UV light does kill a lot of pathogens...

i just bought a honeywell model at home depot. don't have model number tho. it's the white tall oval one. cost about 100 bucks.

has an off, high and low switch. really quiet. we use the low switch at night.

it has a pull out filter that you wash.

it does seem to help.

do not look back when the only course is forward

Hunter Quiet Flo. Change carbon pre-filter every few months and Hepa filter (expensive) approx 1 time a year. We leave it running 24/7. Very quiet and seems to work wonderful.

I have an Oreck purifer.It was very quite when it was new but I can't stand it anymore it is so noisy.

I don't remember the cost. It is very easy to clean but I am not sure it ever did too good of a job.

PS.... Go buy a "PURITY Home Air Filter". I got mine at Wal Mart. It is the BEST air filter for my heater/AC I've ever bought.

Cuts down on dusting like you wouldn't believe!!!!

1-800-444-2072
www.purityhomeproducts.com

It cost me $7+ and lasts 3 months!!! [Smile]

We are considering a whole house Sanuvox in-duct ultraviolet air purifier, which installs directly into your central air. Price depends on size house; about $900 for house up to 4000 square feet. See www.sanuvox.com for quite impressive list of chemical pollutants, odors and biological contaminants it destroys.
