Tips on Keeping the Air Clean During Allergy and Asthma Season + How Fellowes AeraMax Air Purifier Can Make a World of Difference (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.




Most people actually don’t realize air indoors can be up to 5 times more polluted with harmful allergens than the air outdoors! And, with Americans spending 90 percent of their time indoors, where the air is polluted, they need ways to protect themselves, especially if they have allergies or deal with hay fever.   Fellowes AeraMax™ Air Purifiers offer families invisible protection with their new line of Fellow AeraMax Air Purifiers.

Below are some great tips from the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America on how to keep the air in your home safe.

  1. Keep dust under control: Clean tables, shelves, lamp shades and electronics with a damp cloth to ensure dust doesn’t float into the air. Avoid throw rugs when possible; uncluttered and bare floors are best.
  2. Love your vacuum: Vacuum carpets, wood floors and tile at least two times per week.
  3. Clean the air you breathe: Use an air purifier with a True HEPA filter in common areas of the home and in the bedroom.
  4. Prevent pet dander: While most doctors suggest that people allergic to animal dander avoid household pets with feathers or fur, if you’re an animal lover, keep the animal out of the bedroom.
  5. Keep pollen outside: You can reduce the number of outdoor allergens such as pollen and mold from entering the home by keeping windows and doors closed and setting the air conditioner on re-circulate.

As noted above, an easy way for people to combat allergy symptoms is by using an air purifier with a true HEPA filter, such as one from the Fellowes AeraMax line.

AeraMax™ 300 Air Purifier


I was recently sent a sample of the AeraMax™ 200 Air Purifier, and can't stop raving about it with family and friends.  Within a hour of plugging in, I was amazed at how well it worked and cleaned the air.  In addition to my husband and myself, our oldest daughter also suffers from year round allergies, while our youngest has just started to show signs of seasonal allergy suffering with a runny nose, sneezing and a dry cough from time to time.  So, we need to make a point to keep the air free of allergen and pollutants that may irritate our allergies, as much as possible.

I have tried other air purifiers in the past, some of which cost top dollars and promised the moon, but didn't deliver.  It was only when I was sent a Fellowes air purifier a couple years ago, that I fell in love with this brand, and have since relied on it for both seasonal and year round indoor air purification.  

Having used an earlier Fellowes air purifier,  I was able to compare the two, and have to say that this new AeraMax™ 200 Air Purifier,which its sleek design (great for small spaces), along with a True HEPA filter, exceeded my expectations.  I couldn't get over how quiet this air purifier was.  And, during our recent spring cleaning, I was amazed at how this air purifier was able to adjust its air speeds to remove increased airborne allergies.

While our allergies will not go away, everyone in our home is breathing easier, fresher and cleaner air thanks to the daily use of the AeraMax™ 200 Air Purifier. And, while I don't have to change the air filter just yet, I love how this air purifier will let me know with the Filter Change Indicators.  All my other air purifiers in the past never had an indicator like this, so I never really knew when it was time to change out the filters.  When the filters aren't changed when needed, the air purifier doesn't perform at optimum levels like it should.  No more guessing for me. :-)

The AeraMax™ 200 Air Purifier also has different fan settings, which you can adjust as needed by pushing buttons on the air purifier itself, or with the handy mini remote, which fits snugly into the storage compartment under the handle.  The handle itself makes for easier carrying and placement around the house.  When I find myself cooking, I love being able to bring the air purifier into the kitchen/dining room area, and be able to clean the air of pollutants.  Then, when the girls are downstairs playing in their playroom, I can simply grab the AeraMax™ 200 Air Purifier from whatever room it is in, and bring it to the playroom, and run while the girls are playing.  I don't have to worry about them breathing in stale air, or air filled with allergens or pollutants that will trigger their allergies.  They can finally breathe easier while at play, or when resting.  I love the peace of mind the AeraMax™ 200 Air offers, and how it is energy efficient, so I don't have to worry about a crazy electrical bill at the end of each month from running it daily.

If you or members of your family suffer from seasonal or year round allergies, or you are just looking to breathe easier while indoors, why not consider checking out the new line of Fellowes AeraMax air purifiers.  This small one time investment will make a world of difference, which you will notice upon running the first time.  Within minutes of running, you will experience cleaner, fresher air, and wonder how you ever lived without an air purifier like these from Fellowes.

The AeraMax line of products is available on Amazon.com for a suggested retail value ranging from $119.99 to $239.99. For more information on Fellowes' state-of-the-art air purifiers, visit www.fellowes.com.

  1. I really need a air purifier in my home. My allergies have been kicking my butt this year. I haven't found the right one as I been doing research on them, some seem expensive to replace the filters all the time.
