Shortly after we had our first child we realized that it was vital to get an air purifier for his room since we had cats and with cats comes hair and litter box dust. We also wanted to increase the air flow in his room as well.

They advise replacing it every six months which is pretty much on cue but it doesn’t degrade that quickly in performance as the filter gets used.
