Title: Air Purifier for Dust
Post by: BrooklineBiker on November 07, 2016, 10:03:30 AM
Hi everybody,
I'm in the market for a portable air purifier that will remove pet hair, dust, & dust mites. I'm seeking something that is quiet, mechanically reliable, will clear the air in a 200 square foot room, & costs less than $200. Can anyone recommend a model? (I checked Consumer Reports & prices were beyond my ERE budget.) Is this something that would work well if I bought it used?

Hello,
There's a model on achooallergy.com that seems to meet your requirements. It's less than $200 and purifies rooms up to 235 sq. ft.

BlueAir or winix plasmawave.

I've had both, blueair is superior quality.

BlueAir is a bit more expensive, but you can occasionally catch one on sale ($200-300).
The winix was just recently down to ~$100 at amazon/bed bath beyond.
