Air purifier help

I don't know what is going on this winter but my son and I have had continuous problems with colds and sinus problems. I'm not sure if it is the dry heat, mold, seasonal or pet related. I'm looking at getting an air purifier for my condo and I want opinions on whether they really help. Plus, if anyone has a particular brand that they've used that works well, please let me know.

Thanks!

I have allergies, and the air purifier definately works. Make sure you buy a purifier that does not emit ozone and has a permanent filter that you can clean. Ours also has a UV light that kills bacteria.

We have this one:
Honeywell HFD-135 Permanent IFD UV Antibacterial Air Purifier:Amazon:Kitchen & Dining

We paid $300 for it about 5-6 years ago.

Will the purifier tell me if it omits ozone?

This is the one I'm looking at:

MinusA2 SPA-700A Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier - The Great Wave Artists Series

I know I don't need one so pretty or expensive, but I like that it is wall mountable and will basically blend in with my living room.

It looks like that one does not emit ozone But it doesn't have the UV light. If you are getting sick frequently, you may want one with that feature to help kill germs & bacteria.

There is a customizable germ, pet, toxin or odor filter that you can choose from. The germ filter traps and reduces airborne bacteria, mold spores and particles that carry viruses. The main reason I'm getting it is for my future step daughter who is allergic to pet dander. I guess I could get the germ one now and then switch to the pet one when we are all living together.

I really want to buy it now and am only hesitating because of the cost. But, I'm so tired of waking up with a stuffy nose and headache 80% of the time that if it works it will be priceless.

Those are really cool! I didn't even know such a thing existed.

Isn't it cool!

The company has a lot of good reviews on their different models of air purifiers...more so on one of their lower end models.

I think the fancy picture panel really did it for me.
