Last year I have been scouting to have an air purifier – mainly to help me deal with my sinus and that early of the year, there was a bad haze going on in Kuala Lumpur. The air quality index last at that time showed readings of 225 (above than 200 is considered as very unhealthy). It was so bad that you are highly encouraged to stay indoors. Some schools were closed because of the high reading.
So I have been doing research since last year to find one suitable air purifier and came across with Alen Peralda 2 air purifier. After reading the reviews, this one seemed to be the best by far. Alen Peralda 2 with the HEPA air filter, it purifies the air and tested to remove 99.42% of airborne contaminates. Best of all it removes smoke (good for during haze), pollen, pet dander (which is a plus as we have cats in the room), dust mites, molds, bacteria and virus. It claims to remove dust but it doesn’t really suck up the dirt as efficient as I thought.
Alen Peralda 2 uses air filter that can be replaced and it has a replacement indicator that lets you know when it is time to replace the HEPA air filter in the Peralda air purifier.
Here’s the costing part. I have to warn you that this product is costly – to me la and every 6 months, you are recommended to change your filter. So, that filter will cost you RM499 each. But now, I think they recently signed with Maybank and you can do EZYPay for 1 year by paying the bank on a monthly basis.
My personal opinion, I have no regrets in buying this product. I have been using it on a daily basis and it is the first thing I turn it on whenever I enter my room. I now can sleep soundly without wearing a face mask (previously, I had to wear a mask – if not, I would have extremely bad flu and blocked nose during my sleep). Also I guess the acupuncture does help me to heal my sinus.
