    Can anyone recommend a good air purifier? I've currently got one similar to this;

    which is ok. tbh i think these sort of air purifiers are good for getting rid of smells and stuff but im not really sure how effective they are at actually 'purifing' the air as compared to filter purifiers. Mine seems kinda basic and its also pretty noisy, i cant have it on in the same room as me as i find the noise too annoying, so i only have it on when im out. I'm looking to get a more advanced air purifier but reviews on them seem to be very mixed and the prices seem to vary wildly.

    Anyone got or used one? or offer any advice?

    thanks

    What is an air purifier? That round thing looks like a space-age goldfish bowl.

    I think this is more suited to the suburban forum tbh.

    Sunray Its sunny somewhere.

    Best way to purify air is to suck it from somewhere outside the room and blow it through a HEPA filter. The continual positive pressure in the room will cause it to be fairly pure after a while. Clearly dusty rooms will need to be cleaned properly and continuously for a while, the more you do the less dust there will be over time.

    You can buy pumps and the HEPA filters are pretty cheap.
