I’m thinking about buying an air purifier.
#1 – that it not smell of burning wires or “ozone”. My in-laws had an air purifier. It worked REALLY well on odors (something of concern in their house, as Ken’s brothers quite literally live in beds in their living room. they’ve got Muscular Dystrophy and can’t move and have ventilators). But the odor it produced was so obnoxious I had a hard time sitting near it. It always made my lungs feel funny and aggravated my asthma.
Question: If high ozone is bad for us, why are there “ozone generator” type air purifiers?
#2 – that it be effective on the assorted smells in our house – most notably the “doggie” and “fishie” odors. We do everything we can to keep the odor down – but if it’s raining outside and Lucy comes in wet, she smells like a doggie. I suppose she can’t help it.
#3 – that it be small, unobtrusive, and virtually silent.I’ve seen the things be so large that they dominate the room. Urgh. No. I want an invisible air purifier.
This one: fresh air by ecoquest international – has a remote control – which I suppose would have its advantages too! Plus it’s small.
