Air purifier AND humidifier in the same room?

I haven't bought either yet, but I'm wanting to for my outdoor/indoor bird room as when I eventually manage to do it up (please let 2015 be the year it kicks off and gets done, or at least some of it!) as I'm going to be putting a new door on it. The current one is a mesh door so there's a lot of ventilation but the new one I wanted to be very secure and I don't want people to see in! Trying to up my security a lot since we had a recent break in. Anyway. I was wondering If I could use an air purifier (to reduce the dust because trust me, it gets VERY dusty in there, especially with the tiels and all the budgies!) like this http://www.scarlettsparrotessentials...0-air-purifier with a humidifier (because I would like to breed all year round as I have been, but had recent trouble with bad humidity) like this one http://www.scarlettsparrotessentials...midifier-hf758

My question is. Can I have them both in the same environment? They both produce 'healthy negative ions' so I didn't know whether this would be an issue or not

Thanks in advance

I don't know about the humidifier but I have this air purifier http://www.scarlettsparrotessentials...c-air-purifier ..it doesn't do a fat lot..my room is still dusty when I let my grey comes into my room. I wouldn't bother with that air purifier if I were you, save your money for better things for the birds

Oh it really doesn't make that much of a difference ? Ah well, just keeping on top of hoovering the mesh then I guess. I think it's cause at the moment I have double mesh and it catches EVERYTHING Will definitely invest in the humidifier though

I might invest in a humidifier too, it probably does a better job at keeping the dust down than the air purifier.

Might do actually, and at least make the dust stay on the cage floors and stuff too

Do you find that it works? It looks good and if it can do what it says then it is definitely an option I just want something to increase the humidity more than anything but a purifier is also top of the list. I don't mind noise, you should hear all of my budgies chatting at once You wouldn't hear the machine haha!

Years ago I remember a conversation on Talk Cockatiels about people getting air purifiers for their bird rooms since 'Tiels are dusty. Maybe if you could ask on there? I remember that there WAS one that was really good and that worked really well to keep the dust out of the air for people with allergies. (it obviously wouldn't suck in the big chunks of down and feathers but the dust floating in the air it gets rid of!)

If you do have to get one then go for one that's around £200, those are might be ok. Anything below £150 is just naff and a waste of money.

Here are a couple of pictures of the one I've got. I have placed a CD in front of it for you to compare the size. At £147 for it's still naff, I wish now I gone for the more expensive one.

Yes, it works, it does both. If you don't mind the noise it should be fine.

It's similar to this one.

3 in 1 Air Cooler Purifier Humidifier Cooling Electric Fan Cool Ice Water Tank: Amazon.co.uk: Garden & Outdoors

It doesn't really cool the air, but humidifies and increases the quality (more oxygen).
The only disadvantage: It's a bit loud.
I use one of these too. In summer that is, when super hot in the conservatory. Super cheap to run. And I have found everybody says it does cool the place down in there.

I would do some research on ionizers, I seem to remember ion generators are not recommended for use with birds.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.
