My kids frequently wake up in the middle of the night with stuffy noses. They both have allergies and of course you never really know when they are going to hit.
Seasonal and household allergies don’t seem to be isolated simple to spring and fall anymore, especially when our weather has been so unpredictable.
Humidity, mold, pollen.
It seems like we are dealing with them on a weekly basis, and my poor kids sound like they have a cold when really it is allergies. And it’s worse at night. Which means they don’t sleep. Which means I don’t sleep. Which means we are all cranky.
One way to help with these types of allergies is with a room air cleaner. Today’s functional air cleaners off HEPA filters. HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air and filters of this type capture much smaller particles – those invisible to the naked eye, than a traditional filter.
The Honeywell HPA-150 True HEPA Tower Allergen Remover is one such air cleaner. The True HEPA filter in the Honeywell HPA-150 filters out 99.7% of microscopic allergens.

We setup the Honeywell HPA-150 in my son’s room. He has been plagued with a stuffy nose overnight for a long time. It often wakes him up in the middle of the night and he will also wake up stuffy and congested. If anyone could use the benefits of a HEPA filter, it would be him.
It took him a few days to get used to the noise of the cleaner in his room. It’s a great unit for a kid’s room because it is tall and compact, it really doesn’t take up a whole lot of area. One thing we both noticed right away was that his room smelled different. It smelled, well…clean, when the unit was running. We both noticed a difference in the air quality. As for the stuffy nose, I can definitely say he has not woken up in the middle of the night with one since we got the Honeywell cleaner (it’s been almost 4 months) and the instances of him waking up with a stuffy nose are a lot fewer. I do notice they have increased recently so I am thinking it is time to replace the filter.
We couldn’t be happier with this unit. It does at is is designed to do, looks great in the room, and I actually am planning on getting one for myself as well.
