Keeping your furniture and surfaces dusted and vacuumed goes a long way in helping. But there’s more you can do. An air purifier is a must have if you are an allergy sufferer and/or if you have pets. We have indoor pets and, let me tell you, they shed horribly! Dust, pet hair, dander, mold… it all adds up. All 6 of us suffer from allergies plus our oldest daughter has asthma and is susceptible to bronchitis. So we want use an air purifier religiously. Our old one had bit the dust a few months ago so we’d been without for awhile.
Clay and I have been testing out an Airfree Iris 3000 air purifier that eliminates allergens in your home with the use of heat, versus a removable filter.
The Airfree pulls the air through vents in the bottom. It then heats it, killing any mold spores, allergens, viruses, etc. After that, it passes through a cooling chamber and out the top, clean and clear. It does get fairly warm on top. Not hot enough to burn me but enough that I don’t let anything sit near the top of it.
This air purifer is super quiet. In fact, ours makes no sound at all. I tend to forget that it is even in the room. It has a LED nightlight on the top and if it wasn’t for that, you’d never know it was there. The LED has a couple different settings. It can be dimmed or brightened using the touch sensor that also controls the on/off function.
The Airfree Iris 3000 looks almost like a knights helmet. (there are several different models) It is a little space age looking. I have to say, it is quite the contrast inside a cabin in the woods. 😂
I love it though! I’ve noticed a huge difference in our breathing. I haven’t been stuffy nosed or sneezing lately like I was before. It is recommended in rooms up to 650 square feet and even though our home has a bit of an open concept floor plan, it really works well in the space.
I’m excited to really test it out over a longer period of time and see if I notice a difference.
What are some tips you have to eliminate allergens in your home? Do you use an air purifier?
