Periodically one of you pretty folks send me an email asking about shopping for air purifiers, and my advice generally runs along the lines of, “…” because there are a zillion different kinds and no shortage of opinions on what kind is the best. It can be really confusing.
None of this is going to stop me from point out that currently, Buy.com is offering the Honeywell HHT-011 air purifier for $47 shipped. True, this unit is only suitable for a relatively small space (such as an 8’x10′ room), but the reviews over at Amazon (where the cost is quite a bit higher) are largely favorable, and its HEPA filter is a permanent one which requires only periodic vacuuming. So both cost- and function-wise I feel comfortable saying this is probably a decent product.
But if you buy it and your house is still stinky, please don’t yell at me.
