Birdmon, Avoid any air purifier that uses any means other than a hepa filter to
clean the air. "Ionizers" and similar produce ozone which is harmful for birds as
well as humans in the home.
We have a Hepa which has a main filter which is changed about once a year, and a
disposable filter which we change about every other month. We have ours in a
room with an umbrella cockatoo and two cockatiels and it works quite well.
