As a mom of four school age children and a huge allergy sufferer, I have always searched for a great air purifier. I have tried some, but to be honest, the cost of a big air purifier has always prohibited me from getting one big enough for my bedroom. So, given the chance to try the Fellowes Air Purifier AP-300PH, I jumped on it
The Fellowes AP-300PHis a family-friendly machine ideal for the home:
- True HEPA Filter safely removing 99.97% of the bad stuff—pet dander, mold spores, pollen, dust mites, allergens, cigarette smoke and odors.
- Air Purity Sensor monitoring the air quality and automatically adjusting the fan speed to keep air purified.
- PlasmaTRUE removing airborne pollutants cleaning the air at the molecular level.
We had just moved into a new home. I was worried that having carpet again in our bedroom was going to set my allergies off….not to mention my asthma! The house also smelled like smoke, despite the new paint job/carpet to try and cover it up. When I looked up the information on the Fellowes AP-300PH, the company states it is the ultimate tool for moms looking to reduce the risk of illness and allergies in their home/office, and that it fights invisible indoor air pollutants, including: pollen, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, cigarette smoke and odors, which is perfect since I am allergic to ALL of those!
After using the Fellowes AP-300PH for just over a month, I am very pleased with the performance and ease of using this air purifier! We like to sleep with the window open (ssshh, don’t tell my allergist!) which can lead to a dusty room and unfortunately more allergens. So what has me sold on this air purifier? I have noticed that our bedroom (where we have the AP-300PH) is not as dusty as the rest of our home. I have found I am sleeping better and don’t have as many coughing fits at night as I used to prior to using the AP-300PH. I also have noticed that the white noise from the air purifier has helped my husband sleep better than before we began using it.
The machine has a built in sensor that monitors the air quality and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep the air purified. It will usually detect poorer air quality when I am doing something near it (like getting clothes out of my closet) but I try not to take it personally and know that it’s doing its job! I will say the only negative I see about the AP-300PH is the brightness of the display panel. If you can turn it off without turning off the air purifier, I haven’t figured it out. It is quite bright, which did really bug my husband in trying to fall asleep. So he came up with his own solution (which he also has to cover the light to the phone and TV in order to sleep):
