When we bought our home, we loved the fact that it was an established home in an established neighborhood full of trees and natural areas. And while we knew it would need some work, we were up to the challenge of getting the 1960s split level up to speed.
One of our favorite aspects of this home is the original hardwood flooring. We love the style and feel of hardwoods. However, with two kids and at one point, a dog, we found that the dust and dirt was getting out of control. We all have seasonal allergies so on top of the typical problems dust can cause, we also have pollen to deal with. We decided that we needed to clean out our duct work and start using an air purifier to really turn things around.
After using the Holmes® HEPA Type Air Purifier with aer1™ Total Air Filter ($69.99) for a few weeks, we feel that the atmosphere in our home is much more pleasant. The air purifier uses two filters to remove up to 99% of air pollutants. We chose to place ours in front of the air conditioning vent so that the cold air gets immediately filtered before going into our bedroom. The fan also has a 3 speed setting which is nice if you want to use it in a larger room. We keep it on the lowest setting and it provides a really nice ambient white noise while we sleep.
The thing about air filters is that it’s hard to really see a difference. But after using this Air Purifier from Holmes, I really do feel that our air is cleaner and we are trapping a lot of the pollutants before they have a chance to infiltrate our home. This is the first time we have used an air filter so I do think it is making a difference for us.

- Removes up to 99% of Air Pollutants
