Do you recommend an air cleaner or purifier for COPD?

    I tried various air purifiers and now have settled down with IQAir. Before going to bed, after vacuum cleaning the bedroom, the IQAir is turned on for almost an hour. This cleans the air. I live in a city with clean air and sleep with open window summer and winter – which here is not very cold. This and an uncluttered bedroom do seem to make easier breathing.
    True, the belt had to be tightened to pay for the air purifier. However, medication is no expense. I live in Europe and pay some ten dollars a month for all my medication. It blows the mind that, spending more than any other country in ratio to population, the USA can’t provide the decency of adequate and general health care.

    We generally do not recommend one manufacturer over another when it comes to air cleaner/purifiers. If you feel you need one for your home, I would suggest you shop comparatively as you would for any appliance you are considering. Some people claim they work wonders in the home, others have different experiences. You may want to see if our community members post here and share their thoughts. As well, you can always discuss this with your physician. Please check back with us and let us know how you’re doing.
