I am having a horrible time with my allergies this year and was wondering if anybody has found that sleeping with an air purifier helps them. I have one in the living room, but now am contemplating getting a seperate one for my bedroom.
Yes air purifiers help greatly.
First - the air purifier that you have in your livingroom probably isn't big enough to help clean the air in your bedroom. We have 4 air purifiers in our home. Another thing to consider is removing sources of allergens in the bedroom since so much of our time is really spent in there (just sleeping). Due to the severity of my allergies, we had to remove the carpeting and put in wood floors. We replaced curtains with mini blinds and we covered our bedding/pillows in dust mite protective encasings.
If you are allergic to dust/dust mites or any molds- the best thing to do is to buy a dehumidifier. Dust mites and mold can not survive at humidities that are lower than 40%.
In my experience, yes, the air purifier in my bedroom has helped greatly. I also encased my bedding to help with the dustmite problems. Since doing both, I don't wake up bleary, puffy and stuffy like I used to.
Yes, they work, but not exactly the way you want them to, LOL! I love mine, but mostly cause of the cool out it shoots out and the constant noise it makes while blowing the air out! Actually, it does work and sucks in lots and lots of dust and cleans the air. I sleep much better and my allergies are better when it is running.
