Last year, I had the opportunity to test out the Sharp Plasmacluster Ion (PCI) Air Purifier. This is the cream of the crop purifier, complete with water for humidifying, and lights to show the dust levels (cough) and humidity. Darling Hubster has been known to have terrible allergies during the spring and summer, his eyes water, he sneezes non stop and he has a drippy nose – sounds really pleasant doesn’t it – it’s a good thing he’s got money (who am I kidding)… I mean, it’s a good thing he’s cute! And it can literally last for months. Last year was the first full year with the Air Purifier, and while I can’t say for sure if it was the Air Purifier that helped him, we both noticed a significant difference in the snot levels last year.
While people with allergies are allergic to the outside air/pollen/trees/grass it’s actually the time spent inside overnight and then first thing in the morning that the stuffiness is the worst. I suppose it must be because the stale air is circulating in the house over night. I have seen it for many years with my husband, his eyes nearly shut closed when he wakes up in the morning. If the high end purifier isn’t in your budget, Sharp also has some purifiers that do not also have the humidifying option. This purifier comes with all the same purifying abilities with the PCI technology (removing up to 99.7 per cent of airborne particles) and the following options:
- Triple Stage Filtration System
- HEPA, Active Carbon, Pre-Filter
- 3 Fan Speeds (High/Med/Low)
- Library Quiet™ – as low as 29dB
- Long Life HEPA Filter (up to 2 years)
- CADR Dust 140/Smoke 129/Pollen 160
- ENERGY STAR Qualified
The filters are easy to replace and with only one button to press, it’s simple to let the purifier do it’s job in the back ground while you and your family enjoy fresh air. I one thought a purifier would only rid the air of dust, however, it turns out it does a lot more :
- mould spores
Yuck, yes these are some of the things in your home that can make you sick. While other things like neti pots can also help with allergies, they don’t help with getting rid of some of these evil things lurking in your homes.
