Pet Air Purifiers

Do they work well for pet allergies?

Does anyone here use one?

Re: Pet Air Purifiers

  • If you're looking for something to help with allergies, I'd suggest a HEPA air purifier/filters or something similar.

  • Yes - I have three air purifiers in my 850 square foot apartment, and I think they really help improve air quality not only from pet dander, but also environmental pollutants.  I recommend the Lifetime HEPA purifiers by Honeywell - there are several models, each of which is rated for a different square footage area of coverage.  I think we have two of the Honeywell 17000 or 17005, one in each bedroom of our home, and we have a Honeywell 18000 series in our living room.  These purifiers have HEPA filtration, but the filters can be vacuumed out using a HEPA vacuum, so you don't have to buy new ones and replace them constantly.

     

    Hope this helps!
