With cooler weather approaching, I find myself staying inside more often. With indoor air quality being 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, an air purifier is a necessity.
Honeywell HPA-150 NEW True HEPA Tower Allergen Remover
Aesthetically, I think this is a great machine. I like that the tower is narrow, so it can fit between my bookcases, and doesn’t have a very large footprint. There are three levels of air purification for this unit – there’s a simple knob at the top to change between them. I find this air purifier to be very quiet compared to our other one (another brand), and seems to circulate air more readily. It’s important for us to have purified air, living in a dusty area with many smokers and pets around, in our apartment building.
This unit uses HEPA filters – true HEPA filters that capture up to 99.97% of microscopic allergens such as pollen, dust, smoke, and pet dander as small as 0.3 microns. There are 2 HEPA filters and a long pre-filter in this unit. All are readily available for replacement.
Perfect gift for
You and your family. Staying inside more often during the winter season means that you’ll be exposed to the more toxic air indoors. Do yourself and your loved ones a favour by getting one of these units. New Christmas gifts in the home means more off-gassing of formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals in to the air – an air purifier will help you breathe cleaner air.
This air purifier costs approximately $179 – though, I have seen it on Amazon for much less on sale. They carry replacement filters in their stores as well. The only thing I would change about this product is that I would add a handle to the box. This may seem silly, but the reason I chose another brand of air purifier when I moved in to my current apartment, 2 years ago, is because it was easier to carry home on the bus!
