I just bought a Rabbit Air. What model do you have and do you like it? It was expensive but it came recommended by my Avian vet.

Re: Air Purifier Recommendations

I bought two of the 625 models. I love them! It's amazing how much dust they pull out of the air. I vacuum the screens weekly.

I bought the 625 model as well. I have 1 bird. We are doing a kitchen remodel and some painting. I am removing my bird during the actual process but when he comes back home I want the purifier for any residual smells or dust. Plus I think it will be good for me in the long run as well. It was just so expensive.

Re: Air Purifier Recommendations

I agree that they are very pricey. But you get what you pay for. The dirty screens tell the story of just how efficient these units really are.

Yes, I have the duct work. We keep it vacuumed out and changed regularly.

I know its a little over your target price, but it's worked well since 2017 and is very quiet. We extend the life of the filters by vacuuming the carbon pre-filter every week.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for this recommendation! I looked into it but my Lowe's unfortunately no longer has it in stock and won't be getting anymore in. I checked around online for them as well but it seems they're unavailable all over.

I found this one by Honeywell on Amazon. I don't believe it is one of the ion ones but if someone wouldn't mind checking behind me to make sure it does indeed sound to be safe I'd much appreciate it!

This air purifier produces ozone in small amounts. So I would recommend staying away from it. Even though it is a small amount of ozone it could possible be harmful to the bird and you as ozone is known to cause respiratory problems.
