Being the Virgo I am, I’m overly conscious of random health issues. I’ve had an air purifier in my room for years + I highly recommend everyone have one in their home- or at the very least in their bedroom.
Air purifiers help remove dust, allergens and other gunk from the air- so that means if you have any type of allergies this will help you!
I’ve carried my air purifier from place to place as I’ve moved and changed the filter regularly (as needed). Mine comes with two filters – the main one inside that removes at least 99.97% of common household particles, which lasts 2+ years and the prefilter which traps large air particles, lasts a few months.
After moving into my current (and terribly old) apartment, I put in brand new filters. Granted, I allow mine to run 24/7 and keep it on the “allergen” setting to minimize dustiness and also since I have two cats running around.
This is what I pulled out of my purifier after 8 MONTHS in our new place!!!!
Left – old
Right – unused
This filter is supposed to last TWO years and it’s clearly disgusting & needed replacing after 8 months!!! Lol.
You never know what’s in the air you’re breathing and what kind of dust your home collects- especially if your home is older!
I’ve had this Honeywell one for 5+ years and it still works great. (if you can’t tell by the photo!)
Let me know how this air purifier works for you!!
