Are allergies hammering your family? Are you tired of stuffy noses and coughing when you are home?
The problem may be the air in your home. The solution is also the air in your home.
The air in your house may be full of allergens. Pollen, dander, mold spores and other dust motes create havoc in your lungs. The best HVAC filters do clean a lot of this mess out of the air, but they are not perfect. They also take time to work.
Every time you open a window, open a door, let a pet in or out, a fresh load of allergy-causing dust comes in the house. The highly respected Consumer Reports magazine says, “Because of leaks from windows, doors, and elsewhere, the air in the typical house is replaced by outside air every 2 hours.” That’s a lot air being moved through your house.
This Old House has 13 ways you can allergy-proof your home. Some are more effective than others. As this article points out, a very effective way to get rid of allergy-causing dust is with an indoor air cleaner.

Steven Kurutz looked at air cleaners for The New York Times. He writes, “Richard J. Shaughnessy, who has tested numerous air purifiers in his capacity as director of the University of Tulsa’s indoor air research program, said that the primary criterion for selecting an air cleaner should be its ability to effectively remove airborne particles.”
But are these devices effective? The Federal Environmental Protection Agency thinks so. “Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks. Usually the best way to address this risk is to control or eliminate the sources of pollutants, and to ventilate a home with clean outdoor air. The ventilation method may, however, be limited by weather conditions or undesirable levels of contaminants contained in outdoor air. If these measures are insufficient, an air cleaning device may be useful. Air cleaning devices are intended to remove pollutants from indoor air.”
