I use an air purifier daily. Its helped my allergies, asthma, and CF A LOT! Just make sure that you have one with a hepa filter. Other filters on their own aren't as effective at getting the dust and stuff out of your air. I know mine has a carbon filter that can be washed, and a hepa filter that I replace every once and awhile. I recommend to anyone who's got breathing problems to get one!

Thanks Chaser,  It sounds like a similar make.  Leah used to have bad coughing fits every morning but that seems to have changed now.  Also thanks for your reply about the hiccups. cool

We have also been looking into purchasing a air purifier because we live in the coal region and I thought it would be good for our son and then someone told me if we don't clean it every couple of hours we would be putting more germs into the air than taking out. What do you think?

As long as you get a hepa filter air purifier, you don't need to clean it every couple of hours. I have one that has an alarm on it that goes off when I need to replace the hepa filter. Usually the hepa filter lasts about 1-2 years. If your air purifier also has a carbon filter, then that needs to be washed every couple of weeks. I've had my purifier for a good 4 months now, and its still doing its job. Make sure you invest in a good quality one though.

It looks good, but I don't understand the no filter part. If there's no filter, where do all the dander, mold, dust, etc go?

It says they are incinerated but you would think that there would have to be a lot of heat to do that and yet it says the purifier itself doesn't feel hot.
