Years ago, based on Consumer Report's recommendation I bought two Friedrich C-90A units. They were expensive large industrial type air cleaners that worked really well. They required cleaning every two weeks or so, but there was no filter to replace.

I looked at several links and found them to be scientifically correct. It was good to see because there's a lot of hype in the air purification industry, and some risky products out there, specifically ozoneators.

You will find some topics on them in the allergy section, http://www.city-data.com/forum/allergies/
A few weeks ago I had an a/c company install a Reme-Halo for my home a/c and so far I have been very happy with it, I breath much better at night now.

I also have two Honeywell QuietClean Compact Tower Air Purifier HFD010, Black that I bought at Walmart years ago running, one in my living room and one in my bedroom and clean the filter once a month and had gotten a lot dust out of them, they are on sale at Walmart now for $62, I had paid $100 each.

So I decided on a Vornado. So far so good. The CADR ratings for it weren't sky high but were higher than others and plus I was unsure whether I should rely solely on CADR --especially because I don't fully understand how to interpret CADR.

Gosh, we wound up buying an air purifier set from a door-to-door salesman that was over $3,000 in cost. Supposedly, it's industrial strength rated or whatever. Supposed to get free filters with it and you don't have to change the filters hardly ever. My nose still stays stopped up constantly, however, I did notice one night when our power was out and, of course, our air purifiers were not running, I couldn't breathe at all, so they probably are working.

It's one of those things that you never really know if it's truly all a gimmick or if it's actually working. $3,000 is a lot of money to not be sure, but the salesman was so good with his pitch that before I knew it, I was writing him a check. And usually, I'm not that persuasive. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of it. Will have to check when I get home.
