Air Purifiers: Austin Air vs IQAir?

Hi all,

So I've got pretty bad allergies (to dust, pets, pollen, anything you can think of) and I'm looking for a heavy-duty air purifier to use. I've currently got an Oreck XL Professional and don't feel that it does a whole lot.

I've done a bit of research and found Austin Air and IQAir to be two of the best known legit brands when it comes to air purification. Does anyone have any experiences with either?

Thanks!

what kind of air filtration do you have on your furnace?
Usually there's a reason a company is "cheap". Value and cheap are different. Value means best product/service for the dollar spent. Cheap is just that. Cheap.

I just purchased the BlueAir unit from Costco.ca . Its on sale at $230 with bonus filters. Seems to have good reviews, although I'm not sure if its goign to be big enough for my room. Room size is 240sqft and this unit according to the specs it will work right in a room about 175sqft. I haven't received it yet, but will give it a try.

The filters for this are not cheap though. They apparently need to be changed every 6 months and each filter costs around $50 +
