Yep, I can sympathize. Those are some of the most
dusty/dander parrots of all. I can't say which is "best" but
I can tell you what I use. Mine are Honeywell and use a
large HEPA primary filter that needs replaced about once a
year. There is also a lesser filter that wraps around that,
costs very little and needs replacing more often. Be sure to
match the size of the filter properly for the square footage
of the area. I have one in each end of a long narrow room.
There is an additional step you can take that is very
inexpensive and amazingly effective. Get a cheap box fan,
about 20" by 20". Buy the cheapest same size, furnace
filters. Everytime you turn the fan on, place a filter on
the back side. You will be amazed at how much it will pull
out of the air. When it's full, pitch it and replace. I use
one during the warm months and it gets a lot of extra junk
out of the air.
