my father in law got a sweet hepa filter.....might have been from wal mart because he works there. but i know he spent a good couple hundred bux on it. so i may be wrong. but, wal mart does carry some good things, also any store like that....crappy tire, home hardware, they all might sell them, maybe call around?

Avoid the "ionic" filters. They can produce ozone which is harmful to you and your pets. Hepa filters are the best, also the most expensive when it comes to purchasing replacement filters.

Depending on what kind of, and how many animals are in your room, you may not need a huge filter.

are you reffering to lasko ionizer fans? If so I gotta get rid of mine. I thought about using the arms and hammer air purifiers.

I don't know that brand in particular. In general, air filters that use an ionization process produce ozone as a byproduct. Sure, the air is cleaned of particulates, but the ozone is actually worse for you than the dust.

I had a really small ionic breeze that plugs into the wall, I didn't know they create ozone or whatever, I haven't used it for awhile though, I use to use it in my dorm room to help with my allergies.
