My husband and I, as well as all three of our children, suffer from seasonal allergies. It is especially bad for us in the spring and summer months when pollen and tree counts are high. My oldest has it the worst out of all of us. He not only has seasonal allergies, but also has animal, food, and environmental allergies. Most of his allergies started showing up when he was around two, which was about the time he developed allergy-induced asthma. As long as we keep his allergies under control, his asthma isn’t too bad.
During allergy season we can all be pretty miserable. To alleviate our symptoms, we usually take allergy medicine and try to stay inside. The reality is, some allergens and pollutants are still going to enter our home, so it’s important to keep the air inside our home as clean as possible. For this reason, we have been looking for an effective air purifier that we can place in a common area of our home to help clean the air.
Thankfully, we were recently given the opportunity to review the Fellowes AP-300PH Air Purifier. We were super excited to try it out and see what a difference it would make!
The AP-300PH Air Purifier uses an innovative 4-stage purification system to safely remove airborne pollutants as small as 0.3 microns from your air, including viruses, allergens, germs, pollen, odors, pet dander, and more.
Key Features of the 4-Stage Purification System:
Stage 1 – Carbon Filter Safely Removes Large Airborne Particles
The purifier’s carbon filter removes odors and captures large airborne particles.
Stage 2 – Sanitized Technology Keeps Carbon Filter Clean
The carbon filter is equipped with Sanitized technology, which effectively reduces the development of bacteria, fungi, and dust mites on the carbon filter itself.
Stage 3 – True HEPA Filter Removes Small Particles
Capable of filtering even the smallest microbes, the True HEPA filter is designed to safely remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from your home or office, including mold spores, pollen, dust mites, most airborne microbes, allergens, pet dander, viruses, germs, bacteria, and cigarette smoke.
Stage 4 – PlasmaTRUE™ Technology Neutralizes Germs and Bacteria
The AP-300PH utilizes PlasmaTRUE™ Technology to instantly neutralize harmful germs, viruses, and bacteria in the air. The energized particles released by this technology purify the filtered air without producing ozone or other harmful pollutants.
The Fellowes Air Purifier can purify a room up to 300 sq ft., so we decided to place it in our living room, the area where we spend the most time as a family. We’ve been using it for about a month now, and I love how quiet it is. It’s easy to forget that it is even in the room! As far as air quality, I can tell that the air is cleaner and easier to breath. We haven’t been sneezing or rubbing our eyes near as much! Our kitchen is right off of our living room, and I’ve noticed that it even does a great job of eliminating odors. Normally when I make fish, the smell will linger for hours, but now it doesn’t last very long at all.
My favorite feature of the AP-300PH is the air purity sensor. It monitors the air quality and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep the air cleaner. A couple of times we have opened the windows at night and the indicator light will instantly go up to red and the fan will speed up. It’s really neat to see the air quality go from red to yellow to green as the air gets clean. It’s a constant reminder that it’s working!
Overall, we are very pleased with the Fellowes AP300-PH and would highly recommend it if you or someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. It’s effective, well-made, and affordable!
The Fellowes AP300-PH Air Purifier retails for around $250, but right now you can purchase it from Amazon.com for $119.99. This deal is only available for a limited time, so snag one now if you can!
