Air filters

I'm wondering if any members here have tried any air filters in their home that aids in removing allergens or maybe even floating dust/hair from the air.

I deal with some cat allergies, but they are not terribly overwhelming at the moment. We take great care in keeping our house vacuumed and dusted regularly which I think really helps, but we are discussing bringing another cat into our home. I think that might possibly be enough to push me into a more uncomfortable position so I was hoping to find something ahead of time that might combat that.

Do any of you have any experience with air filter appliances?

The straw would certainly come in handy.

I have one of these in our home. Rabbit Air. I keep it central to the main floor, and right at the top of the basement stairs. It pulls in quite a bit of hair and dust, so it must be working. The thing with air purifiers, is they have to be powerful enough to work in more than just a tiny little room, to cover enough square footage. Without having to go industrial, these do work pretty good, and you only have to replace filters 1x a year.

Thanks for the response.

That's a pretty spendy one, but it looks like it works very well. Do you have yours on the wall?

It's free standing, and I move it room to room as needed. I like to use it in the office sometimes too because it's a room I keep closed, to much breakable stuff in here for nosey kitties, and it doesn't get alot of air flow.

After doing a lot of homework, I just order a Rabbit Air SPA-780. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I am extremely excited for it to arrive.

We have Hepa filters built into our AC/Heat system. The filters are very expensive, but we only replace them 3-4 times a year. The directions are for twice a year, but with three big, hairy dogs and two cats.....
I can actually tell when theyneed replacing.
