Homemade Air Purifier

Here in Central Texas we're up to our little red eyeballs in cedar. If you live anywhere from Waco to San Antonio you have felt the effects of cedar trees or have friends & family who suffer its wrath. To me cedar pollen means headaches, congestion, sneezing, and red itchy scratchy eyes...ah...ah...choo! I take all kinds of pills, nose sprays, and eye drops to combat the cedar but it's never enough.

Last year Mr. Perfect did a little research on reducing pollen in our home with an air purifier. Along the way he found that making an air purifier was extremely easy, so we gave it a try.

What you need:
  • Box Fan (20 inch blade)
  • 20x20 high performance air filter
  • 1 big rubber-band

We made a trip to Wal-Mart to pick up the box fan and air filter.

The air filter has a 1500 microparticle performance rating and is an advanced allergen reduction filter... whatever that means. I was excited about the $3 off coupon I found on the package.

What you do:
Put the filter behind the fan and rubber band together.

Be sure the arrow on the filter points to the air flow.

Plug it in and breath a little easier.

It's not beautiful by any means but desperate times call for desperate measures!

  3. Impurities in the air are a worry to any individual who needs to maintain a strategic distance from respiratory issues, and installing an air purifier as a do it without anyone else's help project is an option worth considering.Given the low cost budget needed to set up your own air purifier,this option has developed as one popular option in numerous poorer cities where lion's share of the population discover such leading air purifier as IQAir to be much excessively unreasonably expensive.
