We are still in the cold and flu season and as you might know, it’s super important to have an air purifier to clean the air in your home to prevent sickness. About a month ago we received the brand new Fellowes AeraMax™ DX-55 Air Purifier, and I must say I LOVE it! The Fellowes AeraMax™ DX55 Air Purifier features state-of-the-art, ultra-quiet technology that automatically monitors air and adjusts its settings to offer invisible protection for the air you breathe during cold and flu season.
Spring is right around the corner, but we still must protect ourselves and family from those pesky cold and flu bugs. My oldest daughter goes to preschool and hubby works outside of them home, so they are both sure to bring home some kind of sickness during the cold and flu season. The Fellowes AeraMax™ DX55 Air Purifier is a must in my book! It was super easy to set up out of the box, once I removed it from the box, I just slid out the side to unwrap the filter, and then pushed it back in, as well as taking off the small piece of plastic over the buttons on the front, then plugged it in!
I turned the unit on automatic which it when to high and quickly switched to a low setting. Now this unit is very quiet, with a slight fan noise. Obviously when it’s on high it’s audible, but when on low you can barely hear it. We have ours in the living room with it running constantly and we never even hear it.
I will say though I’ve noticed less dust in the room. My daughter even brought home some yucky stomach bug from school and we made her sleep in the living room in hopes of the air purifier keeping the air free of germs, and guess what? No one else in our family got sick. Usually all of us pass everything around, so that was super impressive and well worth having this air purifier in our home.
According to the Fellowes 2014 Cold and Flu Report, half (46%) of Americans are somewhat or very concerned about getting sick during cold and season. And while 60 percent of survey respondents encourage frequent hand washing with soap and water and nearly half (40%) frequently clean surfaces in the home using a disinfectant, a 4-step process is truly necessary to reducing cold and flu season risk in the home:
1. Ask about a flu shot
2. Wash and sanitize hands regularly
3. Wipe down surfaces with powerful disinfectants
4. Purify the air indoors
I highly recommend checking out the Fellowes AeraMax DX-55 Air Purifier, which is available for purchase at BestBuy.com for $189.99!
