I run 2 heaven fresh
One in the bird room one in the kitchen where peach is
They are fab, no where near as much dust
And the fact it kicks up a gear when you use the bathroom or cook makes me think WOW!!
I wouldn't be without mine now Dave , the dust/dander I Hoover out the filters is unreal x

 The reason i asked is coz ours is an ancient one :panic:
 Its a Bionaire & weve had it years  & years .
 Irene made a curry from scratch the other week  . We set it going in the kitchen & it didnt move the smell :nono:
 . Its just cost us almost 20 to send for the new filter . Irene also thinks its very  draughty. :panic: On the Hf ones ( coz you all same to have the same one ) Do you just vacum all the filters  or do you have to buy em .
 Has most know on here  know this is my last year working before retirement  next Christmas  :run. So we are trying to renew a lot of things in the home  this year  :cheekywink:

Dave the heaven fresh has one filter you replace
I Hoover all mine (there's about 4) I hope this gives it a longer life span :thumbsup:
The heaven fresh blows air out but from the top so not so draughty unless u stand right near it x

Bionaire ones are renound for making rooms cold, though I have no experience of that.

The small white one the 300C is better for odours and people with multiple types of animals.

The 310 and the 380A are the better 2 for birdie people. Both are brilliant and the 310 has 5 stage filtration, 380 has 7 stage.

You literally take the front off, hoover the filer, take it out, hoover the next and so on and yes Mandi, it does make them last a lot longer. Realistically with the number of birds Mandi has I`d say 12 months, but with just 2 birds more like 15 months maybe more. Then you replace just that heap filter so no real expense after the initial outlay.

This isn`t to try to make you buy one, it`s just I researched all this soooooo much I thought I`d clarify as it can be a minefield! It deals with cooking smells, pollen, traffic fumes, animal hair, dust from animals, the lot really!

Have you looked at the Airfree P40? I have that one, and am very impressed with it - it took a few days for the difference to become noticeable as the effect is cumulative, but the improvement is now very obvious (especially to me, as my dust mite allergy which hasn't played up at all since we got the purifier). No noise, no draughts, no filters, no maintenance, no ioniser. It does have to be left on continuously, but it's only 40w so the power consumption is more than balanced out by the absence of running costs and the low RRP of the unit, and it means that you don't have to remember to use it.

(P.S. Thank you so much for your advice on my thread - I just noticed it and will be popping over to read it in a sec!)

We were going to buy a mynah bird because they don't dust like parrots because my wife and daughter suffer from astham.We could not find one any where with a decent price tag.
We found the parrot we took on two weeks ago at an unbeatable price.To combat the potential dust and bad air we bought a bionaire bap1700 and it has been fantastic.

I have 2 Air Purifiers. The new Heaven Fresh, and a Homedics one.....

To be honest the dust in my parrot room is still horrific and I run both 24/7, but I have 5 birds in an 8ft by 8ft room, plus one of them is a TOO so.......

The heaven fresh has made a difference, but not enough of one to rave about it I'm afraid but of course that's based on 2 Greys, 2 Ammies and a Too.

I could do with a proper extractor to remove the dust from the room and chuck it outside. I'm still looking at other air purifiers.

I have the heaven fresh one. It's ok it gets rid of lots of dust. However, I have a small bird room and the purifier doesn't get all the dust, so I can imagine it would be ineffective in a larger room unless you got several of them in there. I personally think for the size room I have for a single bird and the amount of dust it has collected it would be better than not having one.
