I have been reading and seeing that asthma can be lessened, at least while in the home, using an air purifier because it helps you breathe more easily through better quality.
Does anyone have any recommendations or input?

Awesome topic! I have Holmes air purifier that I use for the room in my house. I got the allergen filter. It definitely seems to help me breath easier, especially since I have cats. However, you really only notice it when the door is shut.
I need to get a larger system and one for the other rooms, but they are not cheap and neither are the filters. Do your research on good brands.
I do love my Holmes one. It is very quiet also.

I used one air purifier from this best air purifier list - the Germguardian. It is suitable with my budget, has new technology to help with asthma in it.
To get a larger system for larger room, I suggest you using these large room air purifiers. It is not expensive as you think, I could easily find one for around $100 to $200, which is nearly the same as DIY air purifiers.

Thank you both!
@brentpham that looks amazing. almost like a computer lol... Have you noticed any benefits? can you tell a difference? Do you have pets?
And to both of you, what about when you leave the home... any lasting effect?
Thank you again for your input and help!

@brentpham and @asth89, out of curiosity what is it that you notice most out of these purifiers?
Thank you for the resource link @brentpham

@knsasmyhme , yes I have one cat. Somehow it helps me keep my asthma in control. I vacuum the filter every 3 weeks and normally it covered with lots of dirt and hair. Another good benefit is the cooking smell's gone away. There is only one vent in my kitchen and I need an air purifier to help with.
@Lee__R thank you. I don't rely much on the advertisement or name. There are only 3 things, CADR, power (Watts) and its filter. To test the filter, you could make a DIY air purifier, or research in the internet. GermGuardian filter is good, but if you have more budget, go for the rabbit air, honeywell or blueair.

@brentpham Thank you. I am thinking of investing in the one you purchased, especially since you feel it helps your asthma and then maybe buy a smaller one for my small rooms, like the office. But use the Germ Guardian for the bedroom.
Thank you so much for the help!

@knsasmyhme sorry for not responding sooner. I apologize, just got notified of responses.
For me, I notice that it helps with my asthma. For what it is worth, my partner is allergic to cats and well, we have a cat, but it seems to help.
As far as a lasting effect after I leave from the house, it is hard to say... but I would like to say yes it does. I feel like because it helps with my asthma while I am at home from eliminating any possible triggers that this carries over.
