I live in an 800 squ.ft. apartment and am looking for a hepa air purifier. I've been looking at them online but don't want to make a mistake on a large purchase. I'm hoping to find one for $300 or less but open to any suggestions that clean the air well (down to .03). I don't want one that emits ozone though. confused

I don't think air "purifiers" are worth the up front cost or the cost of operation. I put a better type of filter on my furnace and now have no dust.

I realize you are in an apartment, but you might consider paying a furnace man to put one of the 4 inch filter boxes in the cold air return if there is any way to get to it, probably at no worse cost than the "purifier." Failing that, just get the better 1 inch filters and change them monthly.

Do you have a humidifier? The best ones are attached to the furnace, but in an apartment you might have to shop for one you put water in yourself. The biggest ones do make air more breathable.

Another way to remove dust is to occasionally dust the ceilings and walls. I have a big, flat hard floor mop that collects dust nicely.

allergybuyersclub.com has good reviews on a wide range of air purifiers. I don't have any financial connections to them, just have been a happy customer for many years.
