DH is still throwing out spanners about buying purifier. He knows I want to minimize using aircon which is necessary for purifier to work. But once windows closed and aircon turned one and purifier to work for couple of hours, can turn off purifier? Haiz...

During last year haze, we did not turn on air con at all. Windows all closed.

With air purifier, I am thinking of having windows open for at least 10 mins or so at regular intervals n using the air purifier at the same time. Won't be so stuffy inside the house once the windows r closed again. My plan, dunno correct or not.

To my DH, once windows closed and aircon turned on, then no need for purifiers. :shrug: I also a bit lost. Scared if don't get, then when finally need at peak of haze, no purifier available.

The advice from NEA was to open the windows for air circulation at intervals, can't be 24 hours closed. I think it makes sense that air inside the house can't be recycled for too long.

One of the purifier is now in elder boy's bedroom. Initially was green, then suddenly blasted n turned red, then purple, then green and sudden red again. He has bn blowing his nose.

Will be bringing the other unit to in laws' place tmr. A neighbour's corner terrace is undergoing rebuilding, very dusty.

Hubs is in the same opinion as your DH. Plus the aircon will help with whatever breakouts and rash resulting from allergies esp for three of them, himself, DD1 & chubs. So, kill two birds with one stone somewhat.

I think home aircon units with inverters may not need purifiers?

remind him to finish all the antibiotics. even after he has recovered.

Think aircon units come with some filter, but not the True Hepa or Hepa 12/13 filter, hence can't filter out the 2.5 microns particles wh are the problematic ones wh can get logded in our lungs & cause long term damage. Guess for asthmatic or people with allergies, it's even worse.

This is my understanding...not sure correct or not?

Buds, you can read Chenoceau's blog (Petunia Lee) - she wrote a few articles on air purifiers , air con etc.
