I would love to hear personal experience with whole house air filters. I know nothing about them, but am curious if they would be a good fit for us (and cost effective!)
eta: I wanted to mention that toxins and allergens are 2 things that might not need to be dealt with in the same way... but I can't get my thoughts together coherently this morning. For example, if you're trying to deal with chemical toxins in your home (formaldehyde, other chemicals used in furniture glue, carpet, etc.) there are certain house plants that you might choose that effectively filter those particular chemicals. But if you're avoiding allergens, plants aren't necessarily the best choice for you. kwim? And although I am really allergic to dust mites, I don't use any barriers on my bed or hepa filters (I have in the past and didn't like them)- I'm more concerned with the un-natural toxins in my house. I figure if I can detox from the manmade stuff, then maybe (hopefully?) my body will recognize the natural invaders (dust mites, pollens) as exactly that- natural, not enemies.
