There is so much information out there I thought where best to turn then GD....

basically, we need one for the wife's allergies (minor) which will help reduce dust and dander. probably one in our bedroom, and maybe one more in the living room if we can afford it.

The sharper image ones seem to have a good reputation but they are so expensive. So which ones have you used, do you like them, and do they work? Ive never noticed a difference when my parents had them, but then again I have never had allergies, or other reactions, to dust, dander, ect.

the other option would be to hire someone to help clean the house, but we definitely cant afford that right now.

what says the hive?

Cheap and has worked great for us in the couple weeks we've had it. It's on in our bedroom overnight and my dog allergies aren't as bad now and my wife's minor dust allergies show no symptoms throughout the day.

I liked the ionic breeze, but alas those seem to be discontinued.

The lowest setting is almost silent. The highest setting gives a white noise that's a little quieter than a box fan.

thanks for all the replies, glad a $200-$400 air freshener isnt the only viable option

If you REALLY need to filter the air, then get a HEPA.

So far, I'm really happy with it.

Avoid ionizers and ozone generators (or keep them turned off) as they reduce air quality and can exacerbate things like asthma.

Get a "true HEPA" filter. Honeywell filters are generally good. I have this one and it works great. It's extremely quiet on the lowest setting, and all you can hear on the highest setting is the air movement. This UV-C HEPA filter is what I have running in my bedroom, and it's extremely quiet on the lowest two settings, and just air movement noise on the highest setting.

we have one on the HVAC. Problem is, we dont run them much. Im sure we will run it more in the winter, but fortunately MD is mild and our neighbors keep their places warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, so it saves us energy
