Keep the Air Clean with Fellowes Air Purifier this Spring!

I received a Fellowes Aeramax air purifier for review.  All opinions are my own.

When I was a child my dad was in the military so we moved around quite a bit.  I was at the age where I specifically remember living in California.  I never remember having any type of allergy problems and could play outside all day long if my parents would let me.  My family and I moved to Georgia in 1989 and my allergies hit me like a ton a bricks.  Throughout my childhood and adult life I have been treated for several sinus infections.  As a teenager I also took allergy shots because my doctor recommended them.  I didn’t have a good experience with that and actually had a scary reaction to one of the shots one day.  I was by myself at the office and after I had gotten my shot it started becoming hard to breathe.  The doctors rushed me back to a room, made me lay down and gave me a shot to help.  It was one of the scariest things I remember going through by myself as a teenager.  To say the least, I never went back to get another shot.  I do know several people who have had great success with allergy shots, but it definitely wasn’t a solution for me.

Now that I am married with a family of my own, I still deal with my allergies but they aren’t as bad as they used to be when I was younger.  I think I have finally managed to find a few things that work for my advantage and I stick to my routine. I have noticed that my husband’s allergies have gotten worse over the 7 years we have been married and my 5 year old has allergies and was diagnosed with asthma at a very young age.  Baby A is to young to know about yet, but I will be very surprised if he doesn’t have some type of allergy problems.

With all of my background history I will share with you the ways that we try to keep ourselves healthy and our home as allergy free as possible.  We try to keep our apartment as clutter free as possible, which right now has been a huge challenge because we are in the process of packing up and moving into a house.  We are so excited about this transition, but I do believe it has stirred up some allergy issues for all of us.  We also try to keep our windows closed and use our air conditioner.  We can’t afford the best filter for our air conditioner, but we get the middle of the line that helps with allergies.  As for pets, my son has been bugging us to get a dog.  We used to have one, but it was just to much for us to handle in an apartment.  Since we are moving into a house he has started asking again so I’m not quite sure what we will do, but for the time being he has been satisfied with a hamster and frogs.  He loves taking care of them, but they don’t cause us to have any allergy problems at all.  The big thing that we use in our apartment is an air purifier.  This is the second purifier system we have tried.  I have to honestly say that I liked the first purifier, but it had a very strong chlorine smell to it that would cause us to have headaches until we got used to it.  It was kind of strange, but it did help.

I was recently given the chance to review a Fellowes Aeramax air purifier.  The Fellowes Aeramax air purifier safely removes 99.97% of airborne particles as small as .3 microns.  We have loved the Fellowes air purifier so far.  There is no odor, it is super quite and it actually lets us know what the air quality is in our apartment.  Most of the time it stays on blue, but there are occasions that the button will turn to orange.  I read our weather report this morning and we have a code orange alert for our area today which is not a good day for allergy sufferers.  I dread when our air quality is bad because I feel like I can’t let Little C go outside and play for very long periods of time.  However, with the Fellowes Aeramax air purifier I at least know exactly what the air quality is in our apartment.  When the air quality is orange the air purifier will adjust until the quality level is back to blue on the machine.  I have absolutely loved that feature and I also love knowing that my family is breathing good air.


We had really bad weather last week and because we live in a 3rd floor apartment we always go and stay with my parents when we have any threat of really severe weather.  So last week, I unplugged everything in preparation for the bad weather and our stay away from home.  When we returned we all started off having allergy problems again, but since we plugged our air purifier back in things have calmed down and I have been able to stop giving my son his inhaler has much.  It really has been amazing to see the difference that we have seen in just a few weeks.  I can not say enough about the Fellowes Aeramax air purifier.

  • My allergies have been so bad this spring, I really need one of these.

  • I love these air purifiers. I need a few more for the rest of the rooms in my house.

  • I am so sorry to hear about your allergies but am glad to hear that the air purifier is helping you and your family. My husband has terrible allergies and sinus issues. I’ll need to do some more research and consider getting him one!

    I had a slight taste of what it may have been like to have allergies (clogged tearduct, migraines, sniffles). Luckily, it has passed now. If air purifiers woild have helped, I would have done it ASAP. Definitely will recommend to those with allergies as it is a common question asked among moms.

  • That is SO scary that you had a bad reaction to allergy shots. I wouldn’t want to rely on shots for allergies, anyway. This air purifier would be great for us. My 2 year old’s eczema never fails to flare up whent he pollen count is high, poor guy. Glad to hear it’s working for you!

    I really need to get another air purifier, living in smoggy LA. Never mind that I live near a major freeway, by a bus line and near the Burbank airport! Yes, I do know dirty air! I keep the windows shut and constantly dust but you just never get ahead. Another air purifier would at least help the air in my apartment. Maybe I’ll get a gas mask for when I go outside, lol.
