the ionic breeze is a scam.
HEPA filters are universally accepted by allergists as the best way to remove air pollution, bacteria and dust mites from the house.
I have one in my living room (where I do meds) and one in my bedroom (where I spend 1/3 of my day, every day, sleeping! )sarabeth87MemberJuly 13, 2006 at 7:26 pm #171204696155
OMG!!! I have an Sharper Image Ionic Breeze. I’m soooo glad I read that because I’m not gonna use it again. I don’t have it on all the time, because I get tired of cleaning it, so I’m glad I found this out.EnergyGalParticipantJuly 13, 2006 at 7:24 pm #171204696154
I never saw this long thread before. thank you Candice.
I have two oreck hepa units in my home and love them not only for how they work but for the sound they emit. Very relaxing to me.folioneMemberJuly 13, 2006 at 7:10 pm #171204696153
I looked into the UV radiation thing when buying a humidifier. Turns out UV light/radiation kills lots of bugs but to do so the bugs have to be exposed for more than just a passing few seconds. It seems like in an air handler the bugs in the air would be moving pretty fast past the light so I’m kinda skeptical about its efficacy.RatatoskModeratorJuly 13, 2006 at 5:07 pm #171204696132
We have a hepa filter, but last year I read some article about a UV bulb that is placed in the blower of the furnace/air conditioner of your hourse to zap dust and bugs — touted as being similar to those used in hospitals and restaurants. Anybody know anything about those? L

Oh, very good to know before I ran out and bought one of those cute little things. I didn’t pay much attention to those threads before, but I’m getting more interested now. Good to know, I’ll look for HEPAs.NoExcusesMemberJuly 13, 2006 at 9:08 am #171204696104
candice is correct.
the only air filters that CFers should be around are HEPA.
And the majority of germs that you pick up on airplanes are not airborne. they’re from a common bathroom (touching surfaces) and hand rests. bleh.steph65rosesMemberJuly 13, 2006 at 7:05 am #171204696082
“his unique, laboratory tested ionic wind technology projects trillions of air cleansing ions from its grill that electronically charge pollutants, resulting in cleaner, fresher air while traveling.”
There was a thread earlier about ionic purifiers not being good for CFers…
I’ll look it up and post the link..
That should be the link… I know it seems boring reading at first but it’s very informative.MomtanaMemberJuly 13, 2006 at 6:03 am #171204696077
I have one. I am trying to decide if it is helpful. I often wear a mask – but get lots of funny looks like I have SARS or something!
