Homedics Brethe Electrostatic Air Cleaner Review - Breathe Easy...

Maintaining cleanliness and hygiene within the home are especially important factors where families are concerned. Dirt and grime can be a breeding ground for germs, bacteria and viruses, many of which will inevitably find their way into the developing immune systems of children. Parents know only too well, that sick kids can lead to unwell adults as well. It can all culminate in a stubborn cycle of persistent illness that can be hard to conquer.

There are allergens present in every home. Dust and dust mites, pet dander and odours are a common threat we all face no matter how clean we manage to keep our abodes. For the very sensitive, these microscopic inhabitants are a major problem. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, the presence of household dust can make life very difficult.

From my own experience with allergies, suffering from non-stop sneezing, watery eyes and an itchy throat is far from fun on a daily basis. These symptoms have been plaguing me since the birth of my last child. (They seemed to grow in severity with each pregnancy in fact.) I have a few eczema sufferers under our roof too. Plus viruses are a regular unwelcome visitor in our home with so many kids.

When offered the opportunity to try out the Homedics Brethe Electrostatic Air Cleaner, I have to say, I couldn't wait given the circumstances! In truth, I did not know that such a device existed prior to receiving this appliance.
Has it since made a noticeable difference to my own allergy symptoms? 
Absolutely yes!

First up, some appliance facts that are bound to please if you, (or someone you know), suffers from common allergies and immunity issues.

The Homedics Brethe Electrostatic Air Cleaner is the world's most advanced air cleaning system which eliminates allergens such as pet hair and pollen while killing up to 99% of airborne viruses and bacteria in the home - including cold and flu viruses. With the addition of the included odour filter, it can also remove unpleasant odours such as smoke and dust during use.

The appliance has a triple filtration and elimination process which gives the Homedics Air Cleaner a massive five times-over advantage above other HEPA filters, while cleaning an area seven times larger than similar HEPA towers.
In layman's terms - this appliance exceeds and outperforms the HEPA standard.

The backlit control panel makes the unit easy to operate at any time of the day or night.

The Homedics Air Cleaner is extremely environmentally friendly, using only 25 watts of power during use. It's quiet to use and an attractive device which sits unassumingly within any area you wish to place it. The gentle breeze from the four fans delivers a fresh stream of air wherever you desire.

Let's talk about the benefits though, because they're huge!

I have been using our Electrostatic Air Cleaner daily since it arrived in our home. Currently this appliance has proven itself invaluable in our downstairs living areas. I use it twice a day, every day, (in the morning and afternoon) to improve our household's overall air quality.

Personally, I have noticed a big difference in the frequency and severity my own symptoms since using this appliance. The contrast has been quite stark in fact.

I am so happy to report that downstairs in our home, (where we run the unit frequently), my allergies are almost non-existent now. Upstairs however, (where no air cleaner is present), my allergies continue to flourish. This amazing variation has seen us seriously considering a second device for our home!

Initially, we ran the Homedics Air Cleaner without fitting the included odour filter. (Sheer laziness really - it is no trouble at all to attach it.) After considering the air quality in our home when the kids and cat are in full-swing however, I did fit the extra filter for its 'freshening' benefits.

As for the viral and bacterial protection this device promises, I'd say it's doing its job well. There have been no new sicknesses to date making the rounds, which is promising. (I am a big advocate of hand washing.) I'd say this device combined with my other efforts to reduce allergens and germs, is genuinely making a difference in our lives.

Attaching the odour filter is quick and easy to do.
Homedics recommend cleaning the filters monthly with a vacuum cleaner and replacing them every 18 months.

For comfort and ease-of-use, the Homedics Air Cleaner comes with a remote control which allows users to choose between the four air cleaning settings including quiet and turbo modes, and set the useful timer features to a period that suits. (You can also operate the unit without a remote if you prefer.)

Having experienced the difference this impressive appliance continues to make in our own home, I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the purchase of one of these amazing devices for your own.

It's worth mentioning that the Homedics Brethe Electrostatic Air Cleaner is recognised by the National Asthma Council Australia as a Sensitive Choice product supporting asthma care.

You can purchase the Homedics Brethe Electrostatic Air Cleaner for $299 from Harvey Norman, Myer, Good Guys and all good retailers.

Linking up for IBOT


  1. We are pretty lucky not to have any allergies in our house, although I'm sure we could use some air filtering at times!

  2. sounds amazing - my son has strong dust mite allergies, some pollen allergies and asthma so this would be amazing - will have to save up for one.

  3. Sounds awesome! Perfect for people with allergies.

  4. Wow had never heard of this appliance but it sounds like it'd do wonders for not just my family (my eldest has allergies) but my sisters' too (all my nephews have asthma and or allergies)! Glad to know it's made a noticeable difference for you. Will have to do some more investigation!

  5. The hubster suffers from allergies and I suffer from his allergies. Sometimes the floor on his side of the bed is just a layer of tissues from his constant sneezing.

  6. Wow, that sounds pretty cool. I've always been a little skeptical about this kind of thing but after reading your review and seeing that it's recognised by the Asthma Foundation has got me seriously considering one! Just need to pay off the Thermomix first!

  7. I love all the stuff Homedics are coming out with lately! I was lucky enough to win their Skin Cleansing Rejuvenator and it's great! #OpenSlather

  8. Our house is so dusty. I love sunshine, but I don't love it when I can see the dust illuminated when it streams through the front door! I think we totally need one of these for our home, especially with a husband who insists the dog come inside every other second of the day!

  9. My toddler and I both have severe allergies and asthma. To the point that over the past month we have both been having major issues with the pollen and smog in the air. So my husband decided to buy air purifier and after that we get rid of those disgusting things.

  10. I was looking for PET bottle Manufactures in Gujrat when I came across this blog of Universal Manufacturing Industries and got information about their PET bottles. This PET bottles looks best for the type I was looking for.

  11. Eczema in children are most common up to 5 years. There are various baby eczema creams and Eczema relief gel online available in the market for quick relief.

  12. The all time rise in the history of crypto currency with bitcoin hitting $16,000, must have put all the best fund managers over the globe to work.

  13. Relaxing and Joyful: Drawing with DIY paint by numbers for adults on canvas kit could be very amusing and joyful. Besides it is suitable for both young and adults. We think that painting your own DIY Canvas can be an incredibly therapeutic and satisfying.

  14. Usage of plastic mulching in agriculture and farming do help boost the yields especially in the dry lands. Farmers should be supported and encouraged in every way possible to help them use mulching sheets and grow more crops.
