While no one in my household has asthma, we do have a dog and I live with a smoker. Both of these STINK so you can imagine the aromas which are often in my house sadly – even if Paul has to smoke outside, his clothes still smell badly. Now factor in kids smells, cooking smells and dirty nappies and I’m not painting a good picture am I?
We were recently sent a Fellowes AeraMax DX95 Air Purifier to try out in our home.
I was sceptical whether it would be possible to see or even notice any difference if I’m totally honest but was happy to put this through the test in our rather odourful household.
Aswell as removing the airborne pollutants, Air Purifiers help to filter the air and recycle it, taking away the old air, filtering it and pushing out clean air.
I plugged this into our front room and read through the instructions.
Setting up is simple – take out the filter, remove the plastic wrapping, put the filter back in and switch on. The simplest setting and the one which I have been using is the auto function – the AeroSmart technology sensors monitor the air quality and automatically adjusts the fans speed to keep the air purified.
Lights on this machine are visual clues to your air quality. Blue indicates cleanest air, Amber indicates pollutants in the air and Red indicates high levels of pollutants. The fan will blow gently when the indicator is Blue and on full speed when it shows Red as is needs to work harder.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this machine, even with the fan on full speed is really isn’t that noisy and it really DOES remove the nasty smells in my house!
You can also over ride the auto setting to up the fan speed when you want to – I find this is useful for after Harry’s nappy changes to remove the nasty smells.
It was also good for the hot days as it does help to cool the air temperate too.
The DX95 is suitable for rooms up to 28m2 and is available from www.fellowes.com
