Living in an old farmhouse, we don’t get the fresh whiffs of “newness” and freshness that other homeowners experience. So, I was always burning candles, spraying those odor catching sprays that say that they lock away the odors… but really, where were the odors going? They were just getting covered up… so then my home would smell like fresh, cotton fish fry or yummy, peachy gym socks. Yum???
You all know what I am talking about, I’m sure!
Yes, I am talking to you… the mom that leaves her dirty laundry sit for more than one day…
Hey, I am SO guilty of that, too! With a family of 5, it’s hard to keep up… especially when you have 2 teen girls who LOVE to change their clothes twice or more PER DAY!
And, getting back to the “old farmhouse” scents… they aren’t BAD and I DO clean my home VERY regularly, but I just think this place needed a REAL freshening up, air-wise. I mean, don’t we all think that of our homes…when we have men and boys living with us??? :)
A couple months ago, we received a Holmes Hepa-Type Air Purifier and a couple of aer1™ Allergen Remover filters to try out.
My first impression? LOVE THEM!
AND, I loved them a little bit more when I noticed that you don’t have to buy a new filter for 12 months! YES! That is a WHOLE YEAR!
Well, unless your home is MEGA dirty, dusty and stinky… I would probably recommend twice a year then :)
But really… How is THAT for saving you some green on keeping your air clean???
We turned it on and I IMMEDIATELY felt a sense of comfort.
Well, the little “white noise” that the air purifier lets out, is MUSIC to my ears!
If you are not a white noise fan, it really is NOT that noticeable, unless you turn the dial up to the highest setting. But, even then, it’s WAY less noisy than a hair dryer! It’s more like a really, low, quiet hummmmm…
I made a little video to compare how quiet each level of the air filtration is: (not sure if you can really notice it… but at least you can hear my voice and my “Wisconsin” accent in it…lol!)
Anyway, we received the allergen remover filters because pretty much EVERYONE in my home is allergic to something. We have a cat and my husband and oldest daughter are allergic, but not TOO bad. But this filter has helped them out even MORE! My husband has asthma and severe Spring/Summer allergies. When he goes out to mow the lawn, he has to come inside to take a break from the grass pollen. Having the aer1 Allergen Reducer filters running in the Holmes Air Purifier helps TREMENDOUSLY. Not kidding… his allergies subside almost instantly!
Another thing I noticed when we first started up the air purifier with the Holmes aer1™ air filters, was the FRESH air it released. It really did smell like a fresh rain! No perfumes, No artificial-ness smell to it… just FRESHNESS!
But, enough about me! Let’s get on down and learn more about aer1™ Air Filters!
You might be asking…Why should I purify or filter my air?
The following was an excerpt taken from the aer1 Filter Systems website:
Well, we eat organic foods, drink filtered water and clean with anti-bacterial products… so why not filter the air you breathe!?
Indoor air may be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the EPA.
(and that’s why you hear the phrase…”outdoor fresh”… or “let’s go outside and get some fresh air…”)
Americans spend an estimated 90 percent of their time indoors. Children and the elderly are especially sensitive to air pollution. Most pollutants are microscopic and can easily pass through the nose or throat directly into the lungs. Common indoor air pollutants include:
- Dust mites in pillows, blankets or stuffed animals
- Tobacco smoke & cooking fumes
- Pet Hair and dander
- Pollen and dust
The good news is … you can help protect yourself and your family from indoor air pollution.
aer1™ disposable filters trap and lock up to 99.97% of dust and other harmful airborne allergens before they settle in your home. Breathe cleaner, fresher indoor air with the aer1™ system, guaranteed to dramatically improve home air quality or your money back.
