Every summer I relish the bright blue skies and rising temperatures that summer brings but my glee is short lived when hayfever strikes and my sleep suffers. In my quest to feel well enough to actually enjoy the whole of summer I’m bringing you my Fellowes AeraMax Air Purifier Review, specifically the AeraMax DX55 Air Purifier. It claims to be able to zap away all the nasty things that lurk unseen within our homes, theoretically this would help hayfever sufferers to live and sleep at ease. It would also work for a myriad of other airborne particles.
Having tried a different air purifier in the past (admittedly it was a very cheap one) and finding that it didn’t really help much I was hopeful about the AeraMax and sceptical all rolled into one.
The machine arrived well protected within it’s cardboard box and it’s surprisingly light for its size. The only setting up is the insertion of the filter, which just pops inside a side drawer.
The AeraMax is very easy to use but you have to read the manual to understand what the various buttons actually do. However the basic gist is to turn the machine on at the back and it will set itself to auto and analyse the air which adjusts the fan speed accordingly. If you suffer from hayfever and feel the air needs a boost then press the plus sign button. You can also control the fan speeds manually if you prefer. The circular sensor changes colour depending on the air quality in the room, blue is good, amber roughly medium and red is poor.
But does it work!?
All the fancy controls and science blurb don’t mean much if a product doesn’t actually work… however the AeraMax DX55 does! I’ve been sleeping sneeze free since it arrived and I even leave it on during the day, I think I’m semi addicted to the fresh feeling it creates and the lack of allergies is most appealing.
During the first few days of testing my youngest caught a bug and kept waking through wheeziness and coughing. I popped the air purifier in his room and he slept straight through, I’m convinced this really helped him. Plus neither of his siblings caught the virus and I can only assume that is because the AeraMax zapped the bugs out of the air before they inhaled them!
Would I recommend this machine?
I honestly think that every home should have one whether your problem is hayfever, dust, stagnant air or any other airborne woe. This machine will give you a fresh and clean environment that I don’t think can be matched. I basically love this little device.
Could it be improved in anyway?
I think it would look quite funky in matt black, as it is it reminds a little too much of a dehumidifier at present but I’m being really picky coming up with that one.
Are there other sizes available for smaller/larger rooms?
There are indeed, pop on over to the Fellowes website to see the full range.
