I have severe asthma. I mean severe. And the sad thing is, I never know what will set it off. I never use to have asthma. I was 34, 7 months pregnant, and I woke up with a nasty cough while on vacation at my mom’s and it did not go away. It got worse and worse, and finally I just couldn’t breathe. By the time I was 9 months pregnant, the doctors said it was asthma. How do you go to bed fine one night and wake up with asthma, well, who knows. But it happens. But with that, now if I get sick with a cold, even after the cold has past, I cough, and cough, and cough, and well, you get the point, for months. It gets so bad, I can not walk across the room without gasping for air. I can’t carry on a conversations. So for months out of the year, all because of a cold, I am utterly useless, and all the medicines the doctors give me, steroids, inhalers, preventives, and other nonsense, just does not help. My son has asthma too. Thankfully, his is not nearly as bad. He has a tightness, once in a while. Usually when he is sick, but it is not bad.
This past Spring, my daughter started with awful allergies. She has suffered so badly. There has been things that we can do to help her manage the symptoms so that they are not too awful, but short of hiding her inside the shower, with the water running, she has issues all the time.
So when I was given the chance to try out the AP-300PH Air Purifier from Fellowes, I was all about it. I have been wanting an Air Purifier for some time. Everyone said it would help me so much. But I wasn’t sure. I didn’t really know anything about them. The AP-300PH Air Purifier has a True HEPA Filter that removes 99.97% of particles and impurities as small as 0.3 microns, including mold spores, pollen, dust mites, allergens, cigarette smoke, pet dander and odors. This is huge for me and my family. Since pollen is what sets Serenity off, it has been helping her since we added it to the house. I can’t say it has been a miracle, but that is simply because the purifier can only clean so much and the house is a certain size. There are allergens that will set off my asthma, even though I am not for certain which it is, so I know it is helping me too.
The air purifier has PlasmaTrue™ Technology that removes airborne pollutants and gets air cleaner at the molecular level, instantly neutralizing viruses and germs in the air. This is huge! Basically it helps kills germs in the air. With back to school season, it is usually a given that someone will get sick in my house. I have seen kids already, at cheerleading, that are sick and fighting colds. With the purifier, it is helping to fight the germs coming into my house. The less germs surviving in my house, the less chance I will get sick, the less likely I am down and out for a very long time!
The front of the AP-300PH Air Purifier has a bar that shows how the air quality is. If I ever doubted that it worked I have seen it first hand. Most of the time, it is in th mid range. I guess I can’t complain too much with that. But sometimes,it does spike up to very bad. If I needed proof that it was actually poor, it is almost a given that Serenity will start sneezing. Even when she is nowhere near it. She isn’t seeing it and psychologically starting to sneeze. So often, she is in the other room or across the room. We have the speed set to auto, so the purifier will automatically set itself to what it needs to get the room back to a good level. I love that feature. And my other very most favorite feature, it is so quiet. I actually have to check the lights or go over to it to know it is on, more often than not. It sounds like a very small quiet fan, and I can only hear it is I am actually listening for it.
