Air cleaners remove airborne contaminants from the air in controlled areas. They are an option if you are living in an area where the air is noticeably polluted. The most popular models are portable and electrically powered. There are a variety of air cleaners on the market, and all of them are quite costly. If you are considering buying one, it is a good idea to hire one first to test its effectiveness. The efficacy of air cleaners has not yet been scientifically demonstrated.
Caroline, a 29-year-old chronic asthmatic, has found air cleaners helpful in controlling her asthma symptoms:
I live on a busy main road and am exposed to a constant build up of tyre dust and fumes. I bought an air cleaner for the bedroom and the results were immediately positive. I stopped coughing at night and noticed there was much less dust on surfaces in the room. I keep the bedroom windows and door shut at all times to keep out the dirty air. I was shocked when I cleaned the filter of the cleaner for the first time and could see all the dirt it had trapped. It made me realize just how much pollution there is in the air. I have since challenged my doctor, who had never suggested I try an air filter. He still remains fairly unconvinced that it is responsible for my improvement, but under the circumstances I think it has at least been a contributing factor.
