    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.
