We are big gadget fans and so when I was offered the opportunity to try out the Philips 3000 Series Air Purifier I was really interested to see if it would be any good. I didn’t really know anything about air purifiers but with Mr F constantly complaining of a stuffy nose and driving me mad with his sniffing, I was keen to try it and really hoped it would ease his symptoms.
I am quite a skeptical person by nature and so wasn’t expecting to love it quite as much as I do. What I certainly wasn’t expecting was to notice a difference in my own breathing – turns out I was ‘snuffly’ and I didn’t even realise it.
The unit has a few different settings, including an anti-allergen mode which removes 99.97% of common airborne allergens, 99.9% of bacteria and some viruses- how brilliant is that? It also removes dust, which is probably the biggest plus for me – I am not the best at keeping up with the dusting I must say!!
After about half an hour of having it on I could truly notice a difference in air quality. The only way I can describe it is to liken it to opening the windows on a cool crisp day, with a clean breeze sweeping the dust away. I could feel my lungs taking in clean air – sounds ridiculous but it is true. That night we put it in our room on the lowest setting and I am telling you now, by morning I was breathing so clearly. I hadn’t even realised that I had any breathing difficulties but sometimes it is only when something is gone that you notice it had been there in the first place.
We have been using it at night for the last couple of weeks now and I feel so much better in myself. Mr F has also said that he feels less bunged up so it is definitely making a difference. I wish we could have one in every room as the difference is just amazing! I am really looking forward to seeing the difference it makes next summer as I always suffer with hay fever, sneezing about a million times a day! It says that it removes pollen and judging by the difference it has made already I have no doubt that it will do exactly that!
If you feel as though you constantly have a blocked nose, asthma or allergies of some sort then I would definitely recommend this as I’ve never felt better!
