I don't know about you, but I'm hunkered down in a snow storm right now, and it looks like it won't let up for, oooh, about three months. 'Tis the season for a lot more time indoors, and keeping all that stale heated air fresh, is a challenge. Since it's too cold to open the windows, it's a great time to invest in an air purifier.
Here me out... the heat sources we use to cook food, including gas, wood, and electricity, create indoor air pollution during cooking. Natural gas and propane stoves can release carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other harmful pollutants into the air, which can be toxic to people and pets. Speaking of pets, that dander is flying around your house and you're breathing it in. And don't even get me started on pollen, dust, dirt, and the other bevy of pollutants that still manage to weasel their way into our homes, closed windows be damned.
Doesn't an air purifier sound good now? We found a great one that’s not only on sale, but has tons of rave reviews behind it, so you can feel good about your investment. The Medify MA-14W Medical Grade Filtration, on sale for $79 (was $99), uses a medical-grade H13 True HEPA filter to trap the nasty stuff. 'Medical grade' being the operative words here. This thing is a powerhouse, trapping over 99.9 percent of dust, pollen, smoke, allergens and odors. Three fan speeds, a night light and sleep mode keep the unit running at all times of day.
Over 2,000 shoppers have rated the Medify MA-14W Medical Grade Filtration an average of 4.6 stars — a rare feat! Plus, over 92 percent of shoppers rated it four stars or higher.
“I did a lot of research before making a purchase and I really loved the positive feedback Medify gets for their H13 Medical Grade filters,” one shopper said. “I just purchased their new unit and it is so nice and makes my bedroom air feel fresh and clean. For the price this far outperforms other units at similar cost. And the lifetime warranty sold me!”
It’s also a great find for those with allergies.
“We put these in our office and home and they work so well!” another shopper said. “I have a lot of people in our household with allergies so I can tell due to these how they are helping my family. They also get rid of any not-so-great smells pretty fast! They are the perfect size and don’t take up too much room.”
The whisper-quiet gadget has plenty of fans among parents, too.
“This was probably one of the best buys I could have made for my family,” a reviewer chimed in. “I bought two and they work very well. The air is fresher, the sneezing is practically absent now, and near-silent operation is simply terrific. Outstanding product that delivers!”
In short: This gizmo is so popular, it practically has a fan club.
“First apartment in NYC and needed an air purifier badly,” a shopper declared. “Love the city but I am from the country and the air in my building was not good. The Medify air purifier works so well and it fits perfectly in my studio. Since it is an open floor plan it covers the whole place. I can breathe again.”
