#BreatheTheDifference with Philips Air Purifier

Review/ sponsored

You would think that as a parent of children that suffer with asthma and other allergies I might have previously shown some concern with the air they breathe, but it has never really been something that I thought about affecting them. I wasn’t surprised to find out that I wasn’t alone, we seem to spend so much time thinking about what food and drink we put inside ourselves but not about the air we breathe. So when Philips got in touch with me to see if I’d like to take part in the #BreatheTheDifference campaign I had my eyes opened a little! I was very surprised to learn that indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoors [i] and that allergens have a major impact on indoor air quality.

For this challenge, we were sent a Philips Air Purifier and had a personalised consultation call with media medic Dr. Dawn Harper, who discussed the benefits of the Philips Air Purifier and impacts on allergens, in relation to Bugs’ asthma. With the Philips Air Purifier, you can improve the quality of the indoor air that you breathe within your home, thereby reducing the impact of allergens and giving you complete peace of mind that your family are breathing cleaner and healthier air at all times. With over 5 million people in the UK currently receiving treatment for asthma and every year the number of allergy sufferers in the UK increases by 5% it is probably time that everyone considers the air that we breathe in![ii] The Air Purifier features a HEPA filter and Intelligent Purification System (IPS), designed to filter dust, bacteria and viruses which helps to prevent exposure to allergens.

I was really surprised to find that you can actually ‘feel the difference’ when using the air purifier, the air really does feel cleaner and fresher and there is much less dust around which is a massive bonus! It has greatly reduced Bugs asthma symptoms and I will be really interested to see if it helps Liam with his awful hay fever when he gets back from university too.

The Philips Air Purifier is incredible easy to set up and start using, in a matter of minutes of getting it out of the box it was already working away.  It has a large carry handle and is light enough to carry from room to room and looks pretty stylish too! Philips have made purifying the air incredibly simple by incorporating a 3 stage coloured light indicator which clearly shows the air quality level… Red = very unhealthy, purple = fair and blue = good. The Philips Air Purifier captures 99.9% of bacteria in the first hour of use, helping you to breathe easy, day and night.[iii]

Bugs (6) has suffered with asthma since he was a baby and is always worse at night time, he can cough for hours and hours which causes him to have (and me) very poor sleep. For the past two weeks Bugs has had the Philips Air Purifier in his bedroom, I have had it switched on to the night mode which dims the lights and reduces the noise of the fan so it doesn’t disturb him at all. There is also a child lock so I have no worries about little fingers changing any of the settings. We have noticed a definite improvement in Bugs breathing and coughing. He also suffers from eczema and seems to be much less itchy too!

I truly believe that the Philips Air Purifier has helped Bugs get a better night sleep since it has been in his bedroom. He is much less disturbed and has hardly coughed at all… which in turn has helped me get a better night sleep too as it is just awful lying awake at night listening to a coughing child and not being able to help. Finally I think we just might have a solution!

    I never thought about the Air purifiers until now, but this year hubby’s hay fever has gone really worse and it is not only his sleep but mine too that gets too disturbed! I think it is the best time to get one of these for some good night sleep!

    The thing is huge! I’d no idea air purifiers were so big. But if it works, it works! I hope it helps Liam with his hay fever too!

    This sounds brilliant. We moved to a new build site last year and as the construction is ongoing the air is terribly dusty, one of these would be fab. I hope it continues to help him especially at night. X

    This looks excellent and I really think air purifiers are so great. I think it offers peace of mind too. x

    This looks excellent. We live in such an old house and I really think something like this would make a difference. Thank you for sharing.

    This looks fab – Eliza had a nasty cough for months and getting a similar one cured it. I am tempted to get one for downstairs too

    Air purifiers can be super essential. We lived next to a busy street and had so much smog coming in. No way without a purifier!

    I got an air purifier similar to this for my daughter’s asthma and it made a world of difference. I like the design of this one, it’s really sleek and modern looking.

    I am asthmatic, and I suffer from Hayfever too. I have been looking for a solution. If it can work for a little boy. Of course, it would work for me too. Thanks for the coupon code 🙂

    Oh we would really benefit from this! I have asthma and so do my sons, and the girls both suffer with allergies! I’ve never thought about getting a purifier but I will definitely look into it!

    Great news that this helped with asthma! I could do with it for my hay fever x

    Wow the first stat about indoor air really shocked me, I had no idea. Very interesting and so good he slept better.

  • Reply Clare July 8, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    Wow I have never even considered this. Fred ended up in hospital for 4 nights a couple of weeks ago with a viral wheeze probably brought on by asthma. I am seriously going to consider this.

  • Reply Nikki Thomas July 7, 2017 at 9:38 pm

    That is really interesting. I have one with asthma although luckily she sleeps really well as the asthma is under control. I have another one who is allergic to house dust mites which is a really tricky one, I would be curious to know if this would help him as he really struggles to sleep.

    We have one in the front room and it really does make a difference. Glad yours is helping

    My mum bought an air purifier when I was a child as I have hayfever and my brother has asthma. It was only a small thing and she put in the front lounge where we rarely went into! This looks far better and does seem to make a difference. I have suffered greatly some days recently due to hayfever.
