Got Parrots? Get an Air purifier!

Definitely if you have parrots, especially if you have a Macaw! The 2 brands that I have are Austin Air and Rabbit Air. Two of the Austins (full fledged Allergy Machines) and one of the latter (BioGS). I enjoy them both for VERY different reasons. As a parrot owner, the Austin Air one is indispensable. As an individual who cares for her well being, I could not be more satisfied with the benefits of the Rabbit Air. Having an air purifier will not only help minimize floating dust in your parrot's environment, it will also offer a MUCH better breathing environment for all of you. Parrots have extremely sensitive respiratory systems. It is my opinion that an air purifier is a must, especially if you have very dusty parrots like african greys, cockatoos, cockatiels, etc. If you also live with a macaw and have any of the dusty parrots, it is even MORE imperative to purchase a high quality air purifier. Macaws tend to be even EXTREMELY sensitive to dust and air borne irritants/pollutants. With that said, having an air purifier does NOT mean you stop dusting, vaccuuming and removing cage papers on a daily basis. It simply means you all enjoy a more comfortable living environment. It truly drives me nuts when I read about parrot owners who think that having an air purifier means it's ok to neglect when it comes to basic sanitation.
Ever heard of Pulmonary Hypersensitivity Disease in Macaws? Knowledge is power so I provide you with the following links for more insight.

I'm truly of the opinion that just because your parrot doesn't *appear* to be bothered by the dust... doesn't mean that their respiratory system isn't being aggravated by it. Remember these are creatures of prey and when they finally do display signs of irritation it is usually after they've been suffering for quite some time and have reached a critical point where they can no longer hide their discomfort.

Now back to the air purifiers. Here's what I can tell you about the Austin Air.
These air purifiers were originally created in Canada by John Austin and their head office is now in the US (state of New York) headed by Rick and Michael Austin. Their Air purifiers are all american made and offer ALOT of bang for your buck in terms of air purifying quality. I love knowing that this great product is originally Canadian. Once you experience the Austin Air caliber of air purifying power, you won't want to settle for less.

Regarding the Rabbit Air. What I enjoy most is how quiet it is even when on HIGH. I am an extremely light sleeper and my quality of sleep is so much better since having this air purifier. It always remains in my bedroom which happens to be a NO PARROT ZONE. I don't think their machines are made in north america, however their customer service is very good. I orginally purchased the Rabbit Air for my parrots but now it belongs to me. Let them have the Austin Air! They are both great air purifiers but when it comes to being a parrot owner, my first choice would be the Austin Air. Bar None.

Here's where I purchased them. Both provided great service & of course great air purifiers! Both ship all over North America too. No photos of my air purifiers but here's a cute one of my Emma African grey. YOu can bet that she is QUITE dusty!

  3. Sorry for taking so long to reply. I've been away from my blog. I would have no clue about your question but I would try contacting Austin Air in the US and finding out if they can refer you to an authorized dealer in the UK.

  4. Wow! Really exceptional presentation! I love severe macaw Mabel. We can also frankly take Atmosphere Air Purifier that offers a better quality! It greatly features a remote control unit with five operating speeds!!
