Purifer

Postby fav_giraffe » Thu Jul 02, 2009 4:15 pm

Hi, was doing research on air purifier for my ds due to his chronic cough. Was recommended the Honeywell and Blue bell brand as they are the only hospital graded air purifier and use true HEPA filter. Went to the Best Denki at Parkway Parade and there was a very helpful salesman.

In the end, we did not get one as ds allergy test shows that he is not sensitive to dust mite.

Yes... you have hit the nail on the head... the problem with air filter is the lack of replaceables. Same problem with cordless vacuum cleaners. I went through about 3 air cleaners in 3 years... each time giving up upon running out of filters because the distributer either went bust or they just stopped producing. It even happened with a Phillips brand one.

The one I'm using is a Sharp Plasma cluster. With me for 3-4 years now.

I started with two units of the Philips air purifier. Lasted me about 3-4 years, then failed. Parts were expensive and went obsolete after a while. Later went for the Honeywell, as they had all the replacement accessories easily available. It's been with me for about 8 years, and still working well. Initial outlay is expensive though, but happy with it as if you spread the cost out over the years, it works out well. Sometimes I even leave it on for 12-14 hours running (haze days).

I have been using one called Blueair made from Sweeden, a generally high grade with HEPA filter & almost no noise at all. Blueair provides a broad range of air purifiers with HepaSilent technology for people living with asthma, allergies, pets and smokers. Check out their website

I saw it is available in Best Denki too the last time.

Hi,

The Amway one is quite good altho a bit pricey at about $2K + . But at least you know that amway has been in the market for some time and the replacement parts are definitely available easily.

I also use Honeywell air purifier, more often when days are hazy. However, We do not use so much these days as kids are less prone to cough and cold now but it works wonder to keep the air fresh and clean when you needed it. For parts, we order Hepa filter from USA and change it on regular basis. Maintenance is also easy. Initial outlay is expensive but a good investment overall.
