Our entire family is plagued with either severe allergies or asthma. It isn’t unusual to find someone doing a breathing treatment using the nebulizer. According to the allergist I have 11 known allergens and our youngest son, James, has a standing prescription for Xopenex and Albuterol. With all the breathing problems in my family you would think we would have tried an air purifier sooner since the Fellowes Quiet Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter (AP-300PH) has been doing such a great job the past month. I never really thought that an air purifier would make much a difference, but I was wrong.
Recently we added two awesome kittens to our family, Miller and Guinness, and the Fellowes Air Purifier has gotten a true work out. I love that you can actually see the True HEPA filter and Air Purity sensor work with the screen features that display the air quality, the HEPA filter, and amount of pollutants in the air (via auto sensor fan speed). You would think with all these features that the unit would be big, bulky, and loud but it is so quiet I forget it is running most of the time and it fits into a tiny little spot where it is hardly noticeable.
Fellowes AP-300PH Air Purifier Key Features
- PlasmaTrue Technology removes airborne pollutants instantly neutralizing viruses and germs in the air
- True HEPA Filter captures 99.97% of particles and impurities including mold spores, pollen, dust mites, allergens, cigarette smoke and odors
- Air purity sensor monitors and adjusts fan speed according to particulates and pollutants in the air
- Purifies large rooms up to 300 square feet
- Ultra quiet operation
Like any other mom I hate when my family gets sick. I also believe it is a small price to pay (currently the Fellowes AP-300PH is on special for $119.99 – a savings of $240.00 on Amazon) to ensure my family is protected against mold spores, pollen, dust mites, and other allergens. Nearly eliminating these particles and impurities will dramatically cut back on the chances of any of getting sick due to flaring of allergies or asthma and I’m especially thankful since three of us have had problems with pneumonia in the past.
