Humidifiers or air purifiers?

Anyone have experience with using either a humidifier or air purifier to help the dog's allergies? Or once the A/C is on it may not be necessary for a humidifier? Thanks.

We use a humidifier in the winter time because it is so dry. Once spring is here, the humidifier gets packed away.

I live in NC we run a steam humidifier in winter and a cool one now and through the summer me and Boo Boo have allergies, it helps us breathe. It also is great in the winter keeping the dogs coats from drying out. If you use a cool one you need to keep the filter clean and if it does not have one you need to clean the unit often. The air condictioner keeps us cool it does not help us breathe. A purifier is different thing. The moist air from the humidifier soothes your noise and throat. Hopes this helps.
