What Led Me to Use an Air Purifier In My Home | Review of the Fellowes AP-300PH

Living in the Midwest, allergies are something that most of us deal with every time the seasons change. My entire family suffers from allergies, and suffering is something that we have been doing for the last few months. Ragweed and Pollen have been horribly high here in Missouri. My family and I have all been walking around with stuffy noses, runny noses, sneezing, itchy eyes, and the works.

Not only do we suffer from allergies, my husband, son, and I all suffer from Asthma. This has been one of the worst years on record when dealing with the Summer heat, ragweed, and trying to control our Asthma symtoms.

Last month, my allergies had gotten so bad that they set off my Asthma and landed me in urgent care with Bronchitis.

Something had to change, so we took Fellowes up on their offer to review the AP-300PH Air Purifier.

Features of the Fellowes AP-300PH Air Purifier:

  • PlasmaTrue™ Technology removes airborne pollutants and gets air cleaner at the molecular level, instantly neutralizing viruses and germs in the air
  • True HEPA Filter safely 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
  • Air purifier includes an air purity sensor that monitors the air quality and automatically adjusts the fan speed to keep your air cleaner

Our Bedroom:

We set the Fellowes AP-300PH Air Purifier up in our bedroom, since my husband and I both were waking up with stuffy noses. I turned it up to the Turbo (highest) setting and let it run for a few minutes. Almost instantly, the Air Quality indicator went up to the red level and indicated there was a high level of pollutants in our bedroom.

I found that the air purifier worked very quickly and quietly, as within 5-10 minutes the air quality level was back down into the green level.

We slept with the air purifier in our bedroom for a few weeks and noticed a big improvement in how we were sleeping. Come morning, we were no longer dealing with stuffy noses. My husband thought it was a coincidence, until I moved it out of our room into another room and his stuffy nose came back.

Our Living Room:

I moved the air purifier out into our living room space, as this is were we spend a lot of our day. I didn’t notice much change with how we were breathing when the air purifier was in our living room. Perhaps our space was just too big.

The Fellowes AP-300PH will work in a room up to 300 sq ft. Our living room space is very open with 16 foot vaulted ceilings.

Our Kitchen:

So I moved the air purifier out to the kitchen as we spend a lot time as a family around the kitchen table. When I made this decision, my kitchen table was piling up with tissue and my nose was clogged beyond belief. Over a period of about 30 minutes, my nose began to clear and a sense of relief was felt.

I do a lot of late night work at the kitchen table, so now my only concern is who will get the flip of the coin to use the Fellowes AP-300PH air purifier!

If you have asthma or allergies, the Fellowes AP-300PH is a great way to help your quality of breathing.

My only wish is that we had more than 1 of them in the house!

  • Luckily there is nobody in our household that has allergies but this would still come in handy. My wife changes the furnace filter twice as often as recommended and does it more when I use the basement woodshop. I hate seeing dust floating in the air when the sunlight shines in the house!
  • Air purifiers are absolutely amazing when it comes to allergies! I've discovered that myself recently. Kinda wish I would have bought one 10 years ago. But I did have one problem and I wonder if you noticed something similar. It took away my allergies but tried up my nose so much that I had dried blood/scabs (gross, i know) on the inside of my nose when I use it. It just took all the moisture out of the air. Did you have anything like that happen?
    • Just put a small container filled with cup of water on top of your heater, eg each room usyally has a radiator, if you dont have radiator in your house, then i dont kno what is keeping the room warm, unless warm climate. The water will evaporate into the air, and increase room moisture. Works best with heat aplied underneath the container if water. Or buy a humidifier
