Ionisers, Ozone and air purifiers.
« on: October 23, 2014, 10:25:58 PM »

I'm looking to buy an air purifier for my African Grey. The two products I am looking at are.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0041OIIEG/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2VSD7ZW0BRPQT&coliid=I3Q32EF5FRM52U
and
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CMTU9E4/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2VSD7ZW0BRPQT&coliid=I3CKKGGOWG9N9Z

The second purifier claims there is almost no ozone emission. Is this good enough for my African Grey?

If either of these two are not suitable, what air purifiers are suitable? I cant seem to find a list suitable for African Greys.

I have also noticed that northerparrots.com are selling the following product which includes an ioniser(link below).This tells me that they approve of the ioniser included?

Thanks again for all the help,
Brandon

I've just ordered the heaven fresh today from Scarletts (most of us shop there and Scarlett is a member here) it will arrive tomorrow so i'll let you know what it's like. I have an african grey, two conures & two cockatiels opinion my living too with me so it's got to work hard.

I think the ioniser isn't liked by people much & I think there's an option to turn it off.

I can't wait Mandi, I can't believe how much dust it collects in your video! another member on here has one and it helps with her asthma, so i'm hoping my sinus's will improve.

And all the birdies are getting lots of new toys in the delivery so I can't wait to get home to my parcel!!

Thanks Kazky and Mandi for your replies. Shocking how much dust/dander is collected!

Kazky if you could please let me know on the ioniser switch on your heaven fresh that would be great.

If anyone else here knows if 'virtually no ozone' is harmful toward my African Grey, please let me know!

Thanks in advance.

Also Mandi, can I ask what air purifier that is and whether or not you can turn the ioniser option on and off?

Thanks

I think Mandi's at work now Brandon and might not answer till she gets home. I'm sure its the same as the one i'm buying so if she hasn't come back to you later i'll let you know for sure.

The amount of Ozone these give off is so tiny it`s almost nothing, they have been checked out for birds as being safe, we have checked with our avian vet too and he assures us they are safe, and we use them in our house too.

We have a motto, if it`s not good enough for our birds it`s not good enough for the customers either, we would never sell any product we weren`t sure was safe :)
I think you also have to look at the benefits

No problem, I was worried too at first, hence me checking so much! Lol
Negative Ions are also a concern to some people, yet where parrots come from there are billions of them, it`s what makes the air so clear, they are what give the lovely fresh smell after a rain shower.

I`m sure you will be happy with your air purifier, I love ours :)

Anyone thought about getting one of those unibond 360 dehumidifier??

Just wondering as we are in a flat and use the shower the flat can sometimes get quite damp if that makes sense.

I will be getting a couple, I use the crystal gel absorbers at the moment and they work well so I think the unibond will do too.

I've got it set up now Scarlett, i've got it on auto, does you leave yours on always? It's a nice piece of kit, very well built. I'll update after using it a few days.

Yvie & the feathered ones are enjoying the new toys, the bells are a particular hit :)

I adore my Heaven Fresh purifier, it is one of the best things i've ever bought, not only to keep dust and dander at bay, but also to stop smells, i've got 5 birds in my living room and the room always smells fresh.

I will be buying a second one for my kitchen/dining room soon, to get rid of cooking smells.

all that being said though, if you have one are you finding it kicking out cold air? I'm sure it's just because of the cold weather at the minute, but brrrr! I keep having to switch it off as i can feel the breeze from it 😊
