Question small affordable air purifier?

it is time to get an air purifier!! my flock creates so much feather dust and it is so gross. i want to clean up the air and get a small affordable (probably mo more than $80) air purifier (especially because they are in my bedroom!). does anyone else have an air purifier that they recommend?

Thanks

Check on Amazon. They have a pretty big selection and all different prices. I got one from there a few years ago and don't remember what I paid, but it was under $80. It works great. I run it at night in their room, kind if like "white noise" and it cleans the air all night. They haven't had night frights since I use the air cleaner and night light. I also use a small humidifier and out helps with the dust and bird dander, and they seem to feel better with it.


And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.

That seems like a really good air purifier! I might get it myself.

I didn't think I needed a purifier in my bird room because it has a window and the room gets a cross airflow. Since I spend a lot of time in here I changed my mind, found a good one on Amazon, at a good price for my size room, with good reviews. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I let the purifier run 24/7 on low. When cleaning cages I turn it up. Before I removing the old soiled newspapers I water mist lightly to help hold down the dander, makes a difference too.

i should start misting the papers! i also have my 2 windows open during the day, but it doesn't do anything. every time i wash off the plastic from under the trees, i am always disgusted by the film of dust on it that you can't really notice when it on the floor...

I'm considering getting one for the outdoor bird room. The mesh gets covered in dust with how many birds I have

My friend who is an avian vet tech. gave me the idea of misting the paper. I spray above the paper so the droplets fall down on the paper. I had a carpet in this room but we decided to take it out replaced by flooring. Even with flooring I can't really see everything down there. I use a battery swifter vac perfect for the room OMG what I get up is still amazing. Love my purifier it makes a difference in the air.
AN outside aviary purifier is an excellent idea consider the size of the area before you buy.
