I have two dogs with long coats and seem to love making dust. I am considering an air purifier as I suffer from hay fever and the dust doesn't help. Does anyone have one or has used one.

 

 

 

I want to know are they effective and worth the money? Or am I better having to wipe down surfaces every day?

I've used a small portable negative-ion generator at times in the past.

 

Pretty impressed by the amount of dirt/soot/grime that builds up behind it ... so it must be removing something from the air ..





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

But even a fan builds up airborne dust on the guarding and that's not even one of its intended functions.

I've had a look at the off the shelf ones but found the cost a bit too high, so am looking to build my own ones for around the house similar to this:

Since putting in a heat transfer kit (i added a filter to it) i was surprised to see the amount of dust on the grille for the transfer kit, so am keen to make an air purifier before winter sets in again.
