  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Effectiveness:

Pros:I actually like the blue light

Cons:Doesn't work.

The Bottom Line: Look at HEPA and whole house filtration systems for air purification


We had a mold issue in our house. I brought this unit because it was touted as having superior capability in comparison to other air purifiers when it comes to combating mold due to it's Enhanced Media Filtration (EMF). We had mold tests done in the room with the unit before and 1 month after install. The mold count wasn't affected at all. Why do they not provide a clean air delivery rate (CADR) for the unit? Probably because it doesn't work. To make matters worse when I called customer service to inquire about ozone, I was told it produced negligible amounts as a by-product. Well this device when running on medium smells like I have several photocopiers (which produce ozone) in the room. I don't liken this to a clean smell, and anyone who researches ozone will find that in high amounts ozone is dangerous to ones health. I asked to return this unit because I felt it didn't work, and Healthway wanted me to prove it. My mold tests were not adequate. So much for a certificate of guarantee. Anyone researching these units should reconsider and look into either HEPA filtration and/or a whole house filtering system if you have forced hot air. Both I believe are safer and more effective.
