Hi everyone, how are you today?

Do you know if air purifiers or air filters can help with COPD? Have you used one yourself? Has it helped you breathe easier? If so, can you recommend a particular model or device?

I have 2 free standing GermGuardian Air Purifiers that were given to me several years ago because I live in a wooded area and the tree pollen gives me sinus headaches. I let one go too long after the red 'replace filter' light started flashing and earned some good headaches. Replaced the filter last night and woke up WITHOUT A SINUS HEADACHE this morning. Machines are about $140 each and replacement filters go for 30 to 40 dollars. Costco carries them.

I've had an air purifier for a couple years now. Not sure it really helps with the symtoms but I"'m definite the air quality in my house is much better now than it used to be. I think it's a must, even for healthy people. Air pollution levels are just getting higher and higher...theres no stopping it
