Asthma, Allergies, and really bad air, the perfect cocktail to make you start researching possible air purifiers that will clean the air but where do you start looking?
A few years ago I started scratching my head and asking myself the same question as it was a big, blue sea without too many answers and I could not find reliable information. The best way for me to figure out what air purifier worked best was to buy it, try it and learn. This was quite the expensive way to go about this, but I lavishly lived allergy suffering out loud, so I needed to find a solution to help with allergies and asthma. When I find a great product I will tout it out, and this is a GREAT product!
If you are an allergy-sufferer, you know that the things that are most beautiful to everyone else are the very things that no matter HOW PRETTY they are can lead to sinus and breathing complications because they trigger allergic reactions and just like that, suddenly they are less beautiful. Allergies are no joke and living with them can be even harder. Breathing clean air becomes vital to better breathing, less asthma attacks and living in a healthier environment that ‘weeds’ out the bad air, but this is not so easily done.
Over the last few years I have spent thousands of dollars on my children’s health, trying to get them help with their ASTHMA. This has been a long, hard path with so many adjustments to medicine, foods and machinery, I have almost lost track. What I have not lost track of is what equipment does not work and why.
I have come up with a theory, the less I pay for a filtering system, the less it does and the less effective it is. I have purchased the small units, and run them religiously, cleaning them, throwing out the dirty filters and replacing them with new, but the battle of air purifying has never been won, while the asthma attacks and stuffed noses continue. I have had machines smoke(yes literally) from being run for 24 hours and I have had them just stop working. Many of the machines are not built to last,nor are they actually cleaning much more than dust from the air.
I began looking around a bit more because my youngest son has severe allergies, that plague him day and night and because of his allergies, he missed many weeks of school last year as he was having breathing issues. His allergies are from Seasonal changes. Quite often, he ends up with pneumonia. It is with a vested interested in helping the quality of his air that I turned to Rabbit Air to find a HEPA Air Purifier that would actually work to control the air he breathes in an effort to keep him in the daily grind of life!
When the package arrived, I thought, my goodness this is going to be huge, and cumbersome and loud, but after I started unpacking the device I soon found that it was just thoroughly packaged and while bigger than most purifiers I had previously tried this one was stacked with a series of filters. Each filter tends to different particulates which is what makes this system 5 Stars !
The item I have appreciated most is the design of the system which is sleek, clean looking, and able to blend right into a room without redecorating or working on blending it into the room decor. The air purifier is able to either stand alone on the floor or it can be mounted to the wall. You can also place it on a piece of furniture because it has a floor stand.
SPEEDS & CONTROLS ON THE MINUSA2 ULTRA QUIET HEPA AIR PURIFIER
The system contains Five Speeds that you may run the machine on: Silent, Low, Medium, High or Turbo. Even when it is on turbo, while you can hear a humming noise it is not bothersome, it is more like some simple white noise. So many people sleep with white noise or sleeping sounds of some sort that this is hardly a distraction, more like a comfort to my child.
AIR QUALITY INDICATOR ~ THE STORY OF 2 Little Boys:)
Why have an air purifier in a room if you do not know if it is doing the work? The MinusA2 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier has an Air Quality Indicator. The light will let you know the quality of the air in the room.
One night, as my boys were getting ready to have what they call a ‘sleepover’ they began doing boy stuff, they were tossing blankets, pillows and animals all over the place and suddenly they noted the light went from blue to RED! Almost as though they were at a STOP light, their activity came to a halt. The boys sat quietly and watched the Air Quality Indicator and once it went to blue, they came running to tell me what had happened, almost as though it was the greatest, most interesting thing they had ever seen. The boys proceeded to tell me that they were tossing things around the room and)their hypothesis was DUST had been stirred up(eyeball roll, nothing like feeling unclean, and then being told about it, lol, ). I am glad that they were aware and interested in what was going on in the room and why the machine was so important to the air.
THE MOOD LIGHT
The Mood Light is my son’s favorite feature. The light has four colors: Purple, Light Purple, pink and blue. On AUTO MODE it runs with a blue light, in Pollen Mode it runs with a Pink Light and so on! My son loves the lighting strip.
IN this photo that I took, we moved things around a bit to get the button on RED to show you. Red indicates Poor Air Quality, and BLUE indicates Good Air Quality.
While you may be wondering how much your energy cost is going to be increased , you need not worry because the machine is Energy Star Certified so it is inexpensive to operate and will only utilize 7 Watts on SILENT SPEED.
HOW DOES THIS WORK TO PURIFY THE AIR?
The concept is simple, the inside design makes it efficient and the results, CLEAN AIR! The indoor air is drawn through the filters 360 degrees around the front panel and the clean air is expelled from the back of the unit in an upward direction towards the room. There are a system of filters that the air must pass through before it can be purified and fresh. The filters are STACKED on the inside and when you get the system, each filter, while tucked inside, must be unwrapped. The filters help to clean the air, each with different features. I vacuum these out and I replace the ones that can be replaced as you have some that are PERMANENT and others that are in need of replacement.
SLEEP MODE INDICATOR
The button will light up to indicate the system is in sleep mode. When in sleep mode, the Mood Light and the automatically switch off and the fan switches to silent mode. Another side note, if the room is completely dark, after 3 minutes the machine will switch itself to Sleep Mode.
I believe that I am like many of you out there. I will try to remedy a problem by purchasing items that are sub-par and don’t cost as much as the items that claim to fix the problem. I also believe that we purchase many smaller costs items over and over until we finally figure out that what we spent in small amounts could have just been invested in something that REALLY works, really purifies and helps the air. The Rabbit Air Minus A2 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier is that appliance, machine that really works. While hindsight is foresight, I wished I would have had this HINDSIGHT before I purchased so many other products that did not work, before finding the product that does work!
The system is extremely efficient and I have put it through tests myself, blowing dust, opening a window, fluffing pillows that are from other rooms, etc. I watch the indicator change from blue to red, and back to blue. I have been testing the system for a month in order to be able to really learn it, and be able to convey to you how it works. The system works efficiently, and does what it claims~it cleans the air. We are in the middle of season transitioning and as any allergy sufferer knows, this is a bad season for pollen and asthma so our system is getting a fair trial. I can not be anymore pleased than I am with the functioning and performance of the MinusA2 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier from Rabbit Air.
If I could stress to moms and dads out their with kids that suffer from inhaled allergens~~~you need one of these machines. They are quiet, and efficient. The machine is not just for kids, it is for adults as well that suffer from allergies. The machines are not just for small rooms, but they are for larger rooms as well(you can check their website for square footage that the machine covers). The cost of the machine is outweighed by the benefits and again, I factor in how many machines we purchased previously to do exactly what this machine DOES while the others failed, doing nothing more than wasting our money. One machine, One Great investment and ONE way to clean the air, Rabbit Air – Minus A2 Ultra Quiet HEPA AIR PURIFIER. Lavishly live allergies, and asthma out loud, and fight off the bad air with cleaner air.
