Recent years have seen a shift away from closed-off individual rooms in our homes, to large open-plan living spaces where families can relax, eat and socialise together.
Recent years have also seen a growing awareness of the issue of indoor air pollution.
The World Health Organization now considers it to be a real threat to the health of millions of people across the globe, and some research studies have estimated that the air we breathe inside our homes and workplaces can actually be up to 5 times more contaminated than that outside.
If you suffer from allergies you’ll know what a real inconvenience living with them can be.
Red stinging eyes, itchy hives on your skin, constantly running nose…and a whole load more symptoms besides which can take the fun right out of your day.
Air purifiers can cost several hundred dollars upwards so before investing your hard earned cash it’s really important to do some research to make sure the one you go for is the right fit for you.
If the Airmega 400s is something you’ve been considering then we’ve got the answers to all the crucial things you might want to know about it – like how big a space it can clean, key features and how easy it is to use, and what the purchase and running costs are for this unit. Continue reading
If you’ve been searching for a quiet air purifier you may perhaps have come across the MinusA2 Air Purifier by Rabbit Air.

There’s a new member in the Alen BreatheSmart family and its name is FLEX.
If you’re looking for an air purifier that can help relieve your allergies you may perhaps have come across the Alen brand. They’re an established and well-respected player in the air purifier market and have several different models in their portfolio.
If allergies and dust are the particular problems you’re looking to resolve, Alen recommend a model from their BreatheSmart range.
Until recently there were 2 types in this range to chose from – the original BreatheSmart Air Purifier and the BreatheSmart FIT50 Air Purifier. But Alen have now expanded this range further with the addition of the FLEX version.
But just how does this newcomer measure up to its older siblings?
There are many different reasons why people consider buying an air purifier.
People with allergies or asthma often find their symptoms much relieved, as an air purifier helps to remove indoor airborne allergens which can trigger a reaction or attack, such as pollen and dust mites.
Likewise, pet owners can enjoy a home free from the unpleasant odors and annoying pet dander that often accompany our furry and feathered friends.
An air purifier can also help to remove cigarette smoke from indoor areas, as well as many other pollutants such as mold spores, bacteria and viruses.
If asked to name a product manufactured by Dyson the chances are many people would say vacuum cleaner.
That’s certainly the answer I would have given until recently.
Dyson is a well-known and respected international brand, commonly associated with vacuum cleaners, but in recent years they’ve also been branching out into new arenas with products such as hair dryers, hand dryers, and now air purifiers.
As a long-time fan of Dyson vacuum cleaners I was keen to see how their new Pure Cool Link Air Purifier shaped up.
If you’ve found this page I’m guessing that either you, or one of your family or friends, suffers from an allergy.
One minute you’re happily enjoying life. The next you’ve been struck down with streaming eyes, runny nose or a sneezing fit and suddenly life isn’t so fun anymore.
You’ve had enough. Now you’re on the hunt for a solution.
Perhaps you have a faithful dog you love or a super-friendly cat you adore.
Maybe you would like to offer a badly treated animal a safe new home, or perhaps you’re looking to surprise the kids with a cuddly family pet.
It all sounds great in theory, but there are some issues that pet ownership can bring.
For instance, they create less-than-pleasant odors, they cast fur over your floor and clothes, they create dander and they trigger allergies. Now all of a sudden your great idea starts to lose its appeal!
However, all is not lost and there is a solution – an air purifier.
Could the Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 Fur Family be just the model you need?Continue reading
