I'm worried about brake dust too. I made a thread about it asking for air purifier advice.

Here's what I've learned.

Plants help.

The cheapest option seems to be taping a furnace filter to a box fan.

and there's a looooot of expensive options:

Panasonic, Dreval, RabbitAir, Coway...

[Here's one that claims to filter at an astronomically small scale.]
( I don't know if I believe it.

This one's still on Kickstarter. It claims to vaporize particles.

Here's a vacuum that wants to help too.

And here's an article that talks about and compares air purifiers.

I couldn't be happier with the Coway 1512. Now when I wake up I can breathe with both nostrils! The lowest speed is basically silent unless your head is 1 foot from the device. I leave it on auto which is cool because it senses particles in the air and temporarily goes to higher speeds until the air is clear again. Funnily enough, if you fart near it, it will detect that and spin up. It also pretty thoroughly eliminates odor in general.

My only complaints are:

  1. The only 3rd party filter I've found for it has bad reviews so you're generally stuck with the first party filters which can seem expensive but they last a long time so it's not terrible

  2. When I moved across the country, the fan became unbalanced which made the device loud. Personally I blame the movers since they broke/lost a bunch of my stuff but that still does indicate a failure mode of the device.

  3. The light on the top is a fucking flood light that will blind people up to 5 miles away. I taped over it.

    If I had a magic wand and could make one change to this device I'd want washable hepa filters but from what I've read, washable hepa filters don't exist at all so its not a shortcoming of this specific device.

    Finally, I'm not affiliated with them and benefit in no way from this post. The Amazon link above is not an affiliate link. I'm just a happy customer who was surprised by the improvement in my life when I got a hepa filter.

Seems like staying inside, trying to keep the dust off the floors, and using an air purifier is a good idea at this point. If you have a car, you can get a cheapish place on and spend a night in Monterrey - where the air is much, much cleaner. If not for my family (who can't leave), I would be getting out of here myself.

FYI - this is a top rated air purifier for $205 + tax on Amazon, with prime 2 day delivery.

u/DontForgetWilson · 5 pointsr/GoodValue

I recently got my second one of these after having the first for 3 years:

Off-brand filters actually better: I think that pack should be everything for a year or so.

I never have the ionizer on.


Reasons I like it:

  1. It moves a lot of air and cleans it well.
  2. Really robust permanent pre-filter that catches the big stuff to stop it from clogging your hepa filter faster.
  3. Replacement filters last a lot longer for the price than something like GermGuardian does for me.
  4. Air quality sensor and filter reminder lights
  5. HEPA filter seems more robust than most I see. Good build quality and a thicker design that probably wouldn't have issues bending from the level of airflow(which I've seen from AC filters).

    The brand is a pretty major South Korean one(which seems to have a big air purifier market). They have a more expensive flagship model ( that has more expensive filters and smart-phone apps but I honestly don't think the core product is much better.

I would highly recommend Coway systems. I have pretty bad allergies purchased a Coway Airmega 300 for my 850sq ft studio. I've been incredibly happy with it so far. It is extremely well designed and the pre-filters are super easy to clean.

Considering the size of your room you may want to take a look at the Coway Mighty, which is smaller but made by the same company. It currently sits at the top of The Wirecutter's air purifier recommendations.

The Black Coway Mighty is discounted down to $206 on Amazon. Looking at it's price history on CamelCamelCamel, it seems that is a reasonable discount. If you can wait a bit, it looks like it drops below $175 pretty regularly.

u/JimboMonkey1234 · 3 pointsr/Allergies

My recommendation for an air purifier (after a bunch of research) is the Coway:

I second the allergy testing, that could help narrow down the cause.

When you say you try to keep the air circulating, does that including opening the window? I ask because you could be letting early morning pollen in.

Another thing you can try: sleep on a different mattress / air bed / sleeping bag in the problem room. That would tell you if it's the air or the bed.

u/brdd · 3 pointsr/smarthome

I'm not sure whether this qualifies as "smart" but I have the Coway purifier that's recommended by the Wirecutter (and actually steeply discounted to nearly $60 less what I paid...).

It's very good, "turn it on and forget about it", and has a built-in air quality sensor that can dynamically adjust the performance of the purifier. It also produces a very pleasant low-frequency white noise (as compared to some which are much more higher pitched).

u/blueforrule · 2 pointsr/eastbay

Good call! We also just purchased two air purifiers (one for office, one for home) for the "Fall Season."

u/bgaesop · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've been very happy with this Coway filter. My favorite feature is that you can set it so it measures air quality and turns itself up when it detects extra particulate, and then turns itself back down when it's cleaned up.

u/dreiter · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

From one of the links in my first post, this Conway seems well-rated and with decently-priced replacement filters. I'm afraid I don't know anything about German import costs though. The Conway allows the ionizer function to be turned off. The reviews appear to be legitimate as well.

u/TaruNukes · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

The Coway is consistently getting top reviews and right now is on sale

Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier with True HEPA and Eco Mode

u/lfnoise · 2 pointsr/tinnitus

If you’re willing to spend, how about an air purifier? this one has a very smooth noise band. no rattle or buzz.

u/rjpauloski · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I bought two of the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier with True HEPA about 6 months ago.

These units have excellent reviews and independent tests of performance and you can find them costing $160 every few months which is an excellent price for such a good unit.

Very happy with them. I keep one in the bedroom and one in the living room. They run on auto mode 24/7 and probably cost $3/month in electricity. Annual replacement filter is $50.

Consider 5 year cost of ownership on air cleaners. The AP-1512 was the cheapest I could find for the high performance you get with the unit.

u/SharePertinent · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

If you are so inclined, buy an air purifier. I have one of these at home for cat allergies, because of course my girlfriend has 3 of the furry little razor claws..

This thing is great. I have a huge living room, not sure if its quite shop sized but it might be close - and this thing will suck a cloud from above my head straight into the corner where it sits. I've chain vaped on purpose just to mess with it and it went from hotbox territory to next to nothing in just a few mins.

u/Skarhle · 1 pointr/Calgary

I have a Coway Mighty and live in an old apartment that has a lot of areas smoke can leak in; very fresh and clean inside. Also have two cats that shed and you'd never notice. Parents honestly currently love hanging at my place even though they have cat allergies. It makes that much of a difference.

If you invest even $150 in something decent it's worth it. Mine was pricey but has a 4 stage filtration system, only change filters once a year for around $60. Make's a hell of a difference whether it's smoker, pets, chemicals, etc.

Probably good. is the most commonly-recommended. I also have their comforter.

I use Coway - it's won some awards, seems good. You can get aftermarket filters which are pretty affordable.

Make sure to clean your prefilter routinely. It'll tell you when to replace your other filters.

I have a small studio (around 350 sq ft); I run continuously and it'll cost me about $20/month - I'm able to get to the upper 30% relative humidity. After I've done this for a few months I might relax it a bit and target 45% or something since 35-40% is pretty dry.

Sorry for the delay, LMK if you have any other questions.

u/user_none · 1 pointr/sanfrancisco

I haven't been wearing a mask, though I agree with you on the usage of them. Luckily, I've had very limited exposure to the outdoor air. Still, this shit is bad.

For the indoor filter, I can tell you the Coway AP-1512HH works well.

Hello BIFL! I am moving into an apartment with 2 windows facing railroad tracks and will be needing an air purifier or 2. I came across the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier which seemed like a great option! What does BIFL think and do you guys have any other suggestions?

u/andy2na · 1 pointr/homeautomation

yup, this.

I have a Coway one which always turns on after its been turned back on the smartplug.

I also have a winix one that does not turn on when power is supplied back to it so I had to make a Harmony activity for automation.
