No more sniffles.... / faulty unit
on 18 December 2013
My wife has suffered from allergies kicked off by things like dust and spores of different sorts. This stuff is disbursed by your movement and is propelled into the air all around you. I would often wake to find her sniffling and unable to rest and sleep. Often resorting to Anti-Histamines of varying sorts to elevate the symptoms. We could clean the bedroom all day and still, at random times, something would kick off her nose!
So, what should I do?
I spent a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time looking at ways to "Clean" the air and after a long time and enough information to make an informed decision I chose The Fellowes unit.
I can't begin to explain just how much it helps, we have had this unit a few months now and it goes on one-two hours before bed and thus far the wife has not had any of the symptoms she had before and that means no dosing up on AH's. Now I don't expect everyone will take my word for it, and it may not work for everyone but all I can say is it helps my wife sleep without disturbance of a night, well other than me snoring (allegedly!)
Update :10 03 2016
After owning one of these for a few years I decided to buy another one as they were on offer, I have now sent back 2 of these units as after a few hours of use they develop a fault!
They begin to emit a HI pitched noise like a cricket chirping which is enough to wake you up and drive you crazy. Also I imagine over time that would get much worse and would lead to a failiure.
As I mentioned I have sent 2 back as I thought we had just got unlucky with the first purchase of a seconf home unit but it turns out that the 2nd one went wrong in much the same way.
This is incredibly disappointing as the first unit we bought some years ago still runs great and operates like you would expect even after numerous filter changes and resets its spot on. Seeing the model on sale (like half price) I thought it would be a great buy but sadly I was wrong.......
All I can say is buy with caution and prepare to send it back, saying that Amazon have so far been great and have collected the units no problem. I opted for a refund second time round.
I may have to go for another model going forward.
I would whole heartedly recommend it!
** It also gets rid of food and other smells after 5 mins or so.........
