In this Instructable, I will be showing you how to take a regular $15 box fan and use it to dramatically reduce your allergen intake.
Prior to using this upgrade, I was a lifelong TERRIBLE allergy sufferer.
Dust, dander, pollen, mold, mites... you name it.
I was at the level of needing monthly allergen shots, and still had to take antihistamines daily. Even still, I'd randomly go into sneezy, eye watering, itching, uncomfortable and embarrassing fits throughout the day.
I have been using this setup for about 6 months now, and have not had to take ANY medicines.
I have not had an allergy attack in about 6 months.
If you, your kids, a family member or a friend suffers from severe allergies, TAKE MY WORD, try this upgrade!
It makes for a great night-time white noise, and sleeping in an allergen free room significantly reduces the symptoms you'll experience during the day!
This is EXTREMELY SIMPLE, and relatively inexpensive. (approx $30)
After the upgrade, you shouldn't notice a marked difference in airflow. I don't at least. In any case, the payoff of not having allergy attacks far outweighs any loss of airflow strength.
Again, this is so simple, and the payoff is huge!!!
Step 1: Gather Supplies
There are only 3 things you will need for this upgrade:
1. 20"x20" Box Fan $15
2. 20"x20" Air Filter $15
Here we go : )
Step 2: Align Filter on Fan
Take your allergen filter and press it against the backside of the fan.
Step 3: Direction
Make sure to pay attention to the airflow direction indicator on the side.
Step 4: Tape It Up
Now you simply tape the filter to the back of the fan.
Place as much or as little tape as required/ desired.
Step 5: Enjoy!
The final step is to place your new fan/ filter wherever you like, and enjoy!
Step 6: Share With Everyone!
This simple mod is so easy, so cheap, and so effective, everyone should know about it. share it with all of your friends and family members!
