In this article we examine which are the best fans for allergies. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from any type of allergy, then getting fresh air into your home, can make life a great deal easier. It is worth noting that fans will only circulate whatever air is actually in the room. The only way to get fresher air into the room is to switch the fan on, only after the window has been opened.
I have done a full article here on dealing with allergies. In that you can find out about just how important it is to have clean air in the home. One very good way of ensuring that is to have and use a humidifier. This, when used in conjunction with a fan, will give you the best of both worlds. The humidifier purifies the air and a fan will circulate the air.
What Causes Allergies in the Home?
You may already know but allergies are caused by small molecules and spores of dust that are present in the air. It is those that start to irritate the throat and the breathing. They are microscopic in size and it takes something like an air purifier to remove them from the air.
Below I have added a video that offers some great tips for dealing with allergies.
So although the above video offers some great tips to help alleviate allergies, using a fan in the home needs some care. Anyone with an allergy who wants a fan in the home, needs to ensure that they don’t make the situation any worse. That is why I recommend only using a fan where the air has been first purified.
Otherwise all that is being achieved is the circulation of air that has been even more stirred up by the breeze caused by the fan. We have put together a list of these, that we think are best suited for people with allergies. Hopefully you will find that helpful.
No 1 Choice Fan – Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan with Remote Control
The model number for this fan is the HY-048BP. It only comes in a black color, as you can see from the image. This fan has quite literally sold in its many thousands. Honeywell are a very good brand when it comes to any type of air product. This best selling fan is no exception to that rule.

No 2 Choice Fan – Adjustable Room Ionic Ozone Air Purifier with New Whisper Quiet Fan Technology
Another very popular choice is this air purifier, that also has a very quiet fan. Like the one above, this one also sells really well. The focus, as the name would suggest, is on cleaning and purifying the air. Most of these purifiers don’t have a fan, though and this is what makes this one different.
I like the fact that it comes with a lifetime warranty. Not many manufacturers offer this, so it is good assurance that this is a high quality product.
The fan is classed as being in the “whisper class” and as that name would suggest it is very quiet. That makes it ideal for a bedroom setting.
The actual purifier can handle an area of up to 320 square feet, and that is pretty good coverage for a room size.
It works really fast and can purify the air in the room in a few minutes.
For around the $35 price tag, this one offers good value for money. This little machine can kill off MRSA, E-coli, Legionella, Candida, Staph, Giardia and Salmonella. I mean who wants those anywhere near your home.
